Brianne Manz is a fashion showroom owner turned mom of two (almost three), and blogger. She lives with her husband Jason, son Ryder 4 years old, daughter Siella 21 months, and two dogs in Battery Park City. When Ryder was born in 2008, Brianne decided that she wanted to devote all of her time to her family, and sold her showroom. As time passed, parenthood proved to be extremely rewarding, but she longed for something for herself-some kind of creative outlet. Inspired by the incredible energy of the city, Brianne felt that she could serve as a resource for moms looking for lifestyle tips, along with advice for their kids, themselves and their entire family. Take the idea of friends buzzing about life, love, and luxury, a la Sex and the City and centering it on the family was her basis, she decided to write a blog called Stroller in the City. There she posts about places to shop, eat, and things to do with your little ones. Brianne has been quoted saying “Being a mom doesn’t mean you need to lose sight of the cool stuff”.
