LUXYMOM® is STYLE FOR ALL WOMEN – in every aspect of life. We are the place you can escape – for those five minutes you so desperately seek to yourself – each and every day. We’re here for a light-hearted style conversation, when you need to drown out your work, or your chores, or the bills, or the to-do list that’s a mile long, or your kids who are hounding you for yet another thing, or the phone calls you know you need to return, but you just can’t right now because you are spent.
We’re here for you. We are unapologetically stylish, down to the last nail in the wall; the ring adorning your finger; and the bed in the hotel room. And we won’t make you apologize for wanting to live a life full of style, either.
We sweat the pretty little details of life. We tell the stories of passionate designers; we showcase trends – and trend-setters – who are making impacts in their communities; we take you on trips around the world, without even leaving your computer; and we give you all the inspiration you need to curate the life you want to live.
We’ll empower you to leave your own stylish mark on your life – and on those around you. Because we are each like a gorgeous rose petal – and we are each like a sparkling snowflake – and we are free to live our lives in whichever stylish way we choose.
Here, all are welcome. We leave our egos, our politics, and our stress at the door, and we enter a world of refreshing, stylish fun. You can join us with your cup of coffee or glass of wine – your spot of tea or sip of tequila. Just pull up and escape your everyday – and get inspired to go back out into this world a little more stylish – and happy – than when you arrived.
About The Company
LUXYMOM® is a full-scale digital magazine that inspires women to live a life full of style, and gives them a place to escape from the stresses of everyday life. It was originally founded in 2017 by Libby Romano – a mom, published fashion stylist, and marketer who wanted to share her love of fashion and “style for all budgets and bodies” beliefs in a digital format.
Always seeing the potential in the brand she was building, she sought out her A-team. In 2020, Tamara Boxx – an award-winning photographer and fashion editor – joined LUXYMOM® as Co-Founder and Co-Publisher along with Romano to re-launch the site in its current form.
The duo invite you to pull up with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, and just enjoy five minutes to yourself, each and every day.
Motherhood is hard. Your style should be effortless.

Ursula Gibbons is a photographer, videographer and artist with a penchant for humor. Inscribed in most of her work is a hint of relatable sarcasm and just a sprinkle of loveable angst. Her passion lies in making others laugh and see the true beauty in themselves. Her peace and joy are in nature which shines through in her millions of beach pictures. Oh and she is mature, not in behavior but in age. Really you can’t quite describe her in words she is like a walking interpretive dance, like a line dance or say a messed up version of the macarena.
