Hi and welcome!
I’m Tanya Kertsman, a freelance writer, pharmacist, content creator and mama! Here you’ll find my musings on personal style, raising three kids in the city, finding MAGIC in the most unremarkable everyday life moments, and some good old-fashioned nostalgia.
Some of my writing has also appeared in Byrdie, Doré, The Zoe Report, Passerby and elsewhere. I live in Philadelphia with my husband and our three kids. When I’m not writing, you can likely find me at the playground with my children, testing the latest skincare treatment, reading two books at a time or browsing for a good deal. Your time and interest in supporting Little Blank Diaries means everything to me. I am so happy you’re here. Grab a coffee, stay a while…
Any questions? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
