Hello! I am Clarissa, a born and raised Philadelphia girl, who now lives, works, blogs and enjoys life happily from the Philly suburbs. I am married to a wonderful man named Keith, and we have two pretty awesome kids named Reece (12) and Tatum (6). Reece is our athletic, intelligent and extremely kind hearted child, while Tatum is our fashionable, fearless, smart child, who always keeps us laughing. This brother and sister duo has a ton of love and respect for one another and they most definitely are dynamic.
Despite the fact that I have lived in Pennsylvania my whole life, my family and I have mastered the art of traveling the world, especially when that world has the word Disney in front it! We are huge fans of traveling to warm weather places. We love to head to the Caribbean to explore new islands and escape the cold PA winters.
I like to consider myself somewhat of a travel expert, as both myself and my blog have become a great resource for people, especially parents, to learn how and where to travel to both with and without the kids.
Check out some of my popular travel posts:
A Little Bit About Clarissa
I have worked within the Insurance Industry for the past 15 years, even though my degree from Temple University is in Broadcasting, Telecommunications and Mass Media. I have worked within Corporate America for The Police Athletic League (within their Public Relations department), The Federal Reserve Bank, Enterprise Leasing Company and Travelers Insurance Company.
I love to spend lots of time with my husband, our two kids and our adorable Labradoodle Jaxie. When I am not hanging out with my family, working, blogging or traveling, you can probably find me reading or online shopping (shhh, don’t tell my husband that last part). – Did you notice that sleep was not included in the things that you might find me doing?
I have been fortunate enough to have mastered the art of co-parenting (if there is such a thing), therefore I think its pretty cool that my son’s father and I are the best of friends. Thank you to Huffington Post for publishing my story about My Blended Family a couple of years ago.
My friends and family have always joked that Clarissa can explain it all, especially when it comes to fashion, travel (Disney travel is a specialty of mine!) and family/parenting. Since I have always been passionate about social media, marketing and advertising, I decided, only a couple of years ago, to make my dream of creating a blog called Clarissa Explains It All a reality.
What I am proud of the most about my blog is that I have been able to connect with so many people to share everything from my obsession for Tieks, to what fashion and beauty items you should bring when traveling to the Caribbean (think Clarisonic Mia Fit), to how I get it all done as a working parent, and so much more. I appreciate that people find value in reading my blog and that they connect with me on my other social networks to continue our conversations, so that they get to know the real Clarissa.
I love that my blog has helped me be able to partner with agencies and brands on reviews, experiences and sponsored posts.
I am currently a beauty believer brand ambassador for philosophy.
About a year and a half ago I was fortunate enough to have partnered up with Motrin, and I even had the amazing opportunity to shoot a video with the very beautiful and gracious Jennie Garth about finding ways to make it happen with your family.
I was a featured guest on the Today Show with Jean Chatzky (Investing 101: Expert Counseling on retirement saving), I have appeared on QVC for a philosophy beauty celebration, participated in multiple photo campaigns for Visit Philly, as well as written a couple of articles that were published on sites such as JeanChatzky.com (Identity Theft) and HuffingtonPost.com (My Blended Family – Huffington Post and Happy Anniversary to my Husband and Son – Huffington Post).
