Learn about a blog that features travel, decor, fashion, food, and more for the posh professional or stay-at-home mom.
ModHousewife is a forum for all modern women, whether working professional or stay-at-home mom, with an inner-sexy, intelligent and fun “Housewife” spirit. Women can take time to relax with their favorite latte and read up on the many aspects the blog has to offer, such as travel, decor, fashion, food, and so much more.
In 2011, Ainslie Gordon, founder of ModHousewife, was beginning to start a whole new life in Cincinnati. Before moving, Gordon began blogging as part of her public relations position at a local St. Louis software company. She knew that blogging was going to be the future of news. Even though she was going to become a stay-at-home mom, she wanted to keep contributing to the marketing world. She created ModHousewife.com, a blog about things she enjoyed. Through her blog, she developed her hobby of fashion styling into a business.
Gordon is a St. Louis, Missouri native and a graduate of the University of Missouri with a degree in journalism. Her career has focused on advertising, public relations, and event planning. She was a fashion/trends contributor on Fox 19 (Cincinnati) and Fox 2 (St. Louis). Currently, Gordon is a website contributor and WKRC Local 12 correspondent for Cincinnati Parent Magazine.
Gordon offers many popular styling services, such as the “Closet Facelift.” This service includes: 2-hour in-home closet restyling and a 1-hour follow up appointment. This styling service also includes discussing the existing wardrobe (fit, style, and color), categorizing clothing (keep or donate), creating new outfits from existing piece’s/women’s fashion inspiration photos, and updating outfit recommendations based on new clothing purchased.
“My topics and styling are enjoyable and fun,” says Gordon. “This is your time away from the chaos of family life to treat yourself to a great read or new trends. My only job is to make you feel your absolute best (and on a budget).”
Gordon lives with her husband and daughter in West Chester, OH, and loves all things Disney. For the past few years, Gordon has been writing about her family’s Disney vacations (land and sea) and insider tips. “I will never write about packing lightly…..I always bring too many shoes!” says Gordon.
