LaToi “Toi” Storr admits to rewriting her bio a thousand times, and honestly, that makes a lot of sense. After all, the Philadelphia-based lifestyle, self–care, and mental health blogger is constantly growing her business. Her blogging journey started by sharing posts on her personal Facebook page. It quickly took off from there, morphing into a blogging Facebook page and then turning into her own website, ToiTime. But Storr did not stop there. She is now the host of her own weekly podcast, Conversations With Toi, writes both as a freelancer and ghost writer, manages social media accounts for other businesses, and has other creative projects coming down the pipeline. Oh, and did we mention she does all that while being a mother of three?

*Round of applause*

Amidst all her success, Storr keeps it real, sharing the highs and the lows of being a mom — “Some days my Instagram looks like I nailed the perfect night and other times I am happy that my makeup isn’t fully smudged” — and is the vulnerable, relatable wellness queen we all needed.

“If you are looking for the cookie cutter blog, this ain’t yo momma’s blog,” she said on her site. “I am going to call a spade a spade even if that means highlighting an area where I have had an epic fail … Perfection doesn’t exist in my world. Doing my best is what I strive for daily.”

She shines a light on the reality of dealing with anxiety and postpartum depression, and she shares the self-care inspiration and motivation that we absolutely have to prioritize. Storr told BlogHer she intentionally builds self-care breaks into her day, and now we want to follow her oh-so-necessary lead.

“[Women] are the most nurturing people but often times that leaves us empty shells,” she wrote on ToiTime. “As I pour out I am aware of the need to pour back into myself.”
