When it comes to identifying the first influential person in our lives, many of us credit our mothers. After all, she’s the women capable of doing everything—keeping her household together, taking care of all her children, making sure the bills are paid and preparing healthy meals—all while maintaining a career and keeping herself well put together. She’s the master of balance, a ‘Rockmom’ of sorts. This term coined by June Ambrose, who is the quintessential example of a ‘Rockmom’ describes how being a mother doesn’t mean one has to sacrifice her personal style while conquering the world and taking care of her children.
