    In honor of Mother’s Day, we here at Rebel Lifestyle Magazine had the honor of interviewing TV personality and devoted mother, Mimi Faust. Mimi is a small business owner, interior decorator and the mother to Eva, the daughter of three-time Grammy-Award-winning songwriter, musician, and producer Stevie J. Mimi and Eva talked to us about all things motherhood and what makes their relationship so special.

    “Motherhood has made me a better person, because I always have to put someone before me, who is her [Eva]. It has made me more mature,” Mimi tells us. “It’s not just me anymore. It’s her and I, and she comes first.” She went on to tell us that she is not perfect, just as anyone else. Throughout her seven years of being a mother, she has learned many lessons, including how to overcome during rough times. When asked what she says to her daughter during these times, she stated that she is honest but age appropriate. She speaks to Eva “when it’s the right time” and lets her know that “sometimes Mommy makes mistakes, but you can always turn them around and fix them.”

    As a TV Personality, Mimi has to juggle the art of being a mother in the world of entertainment, but she makes it work. “I just do it. You figure it out, and you make it work”, she says. She admitted, “it is difficult, but it’s a lot easier than when it started.” In order to keep Eva shielded from the negativity that can come with the entertainment lifestyle, Mimi makes sure to keep her daughter “a child” at all times. They do not watch negative influences on television, she doesn’t expose Eva to negative things and will not have negative conversations in her presence. She reminds Eva to do unto others as she would have them do unto her. “It is cliché, but it makes a difference. She is seven years old, and I want to keep her a child as long as possible,” Faust tell us.

    Giraffe
    Favorite Mothers Day Gift Ideas


    The inspiration behind the Giraffe’s unique design was to develop a shaving accessory that would assist women with varying physical abilities to shave their legs safely and comfortably. Fab for Moms to be, it was originally intended to create the Giraffe specifically to assist women who were unable to shave their legs due to the increasing discomfort of symptoms associated with the second and third trimester of pregnancy. But after researching the current market, they discovered an unmet demand for a product like ours for women limited in flexibility and mobility. These limitations or disabilities could stem from sports injuries, hip and knee surgery or a chronic medical condition such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, muscular dystrophy, degenerative joint disease, shoulder, neck or back pain or some other unforeseen circumstance. As a result, shaving is difficult if not impossible with a short-handled razor. Giraffe Bath and Body hopes to help bridge the gap between dependency to self-sufficiency and to help improve the quality of life for these individuals.

    - Posted by Barbara Ann Jackson on November 28th 2013 to News

    In Honor of my “Mother Dear” –Viola M Coleman (1927-2013) -


    ay, I feel an obligation to offer a gift of encouragement and strength for a person or persons who is, like me, alone on this Thanksgiving Day. I’d like to do so from a religious position, in honor of my mother whose religious life demonstrated, among other things, how to be alone, but certainly not lonely.

    I can understand if the last thing a lot of people want to read or hear is some religious article. It’s understandable there are people who are not interested my religious writing either. Personally, I’ve never experienced meaningful encouragement that... (read more)

    THE WEALTH OF MY MOTHER’S WISDOM

    This past Saturday, E! NEWS co-anchor TERRENCE JENKINS and the Disney Dreamers Academy treated 100 single mothers and their children to an amazing brunch complete with a day at the Disneyland Park in Anaheim, Calif. Jenkins was joined by his own mother, Lisa Gonzalez and his BAGGAGE CLAIM co-star Lauren London to also share his memoir, THE WEALTH OF MY MOTHER’S WISDOM (available at bookstores everywhere on October 1st). The memoir chronicles Jenkins childhood being raised by his strong, single mother Lisa and his rise to success amidst adversity and obstacles.

    His story serves as a shining example that anything is possible with determination and preparation. It was the lessons he learned from his mother that helped make him a man—lessons about sacrifice, courage, loyalty, dreams and perseverance. Through her words and her actions, Lisa showed Terrence the right path to success. Jenkins offers a positive, powerful message: with a strong family bond, the possibilities are endless.
