Work With Us

Welcome to Penelope’s Oasis, and thanks for your interest! I’m Penelope Guzman, the mom of two boys and wife of a police officer, living on Long Island, New York. I’m a freelance writer and photographer taking a long-term sabbatical from my pharmacy career. I love to write about parenting, married life, building a strong family and home, family travel, favorite healthy recipes and lifestyle tips, and easy beauty for busy moms. I’m particularly interested in working with companies related to healthy living, family travel, and fun, engaging, and educational activities for boys.

Penelope’s Oasis sees over three million unique annual visitors and, according to Alexa, has a readership predominantly of college educated women 21-35 from the US browsing from home. We are most active socially on Twitter and Instagram, and recently discovered a love for creating videos. If your company would like to work with us, we can be contacted by email at PenelopesOasis@yahoo.com to discuss creating sponsored posts, video, or share with our readership on social media.

Brand Ambassadorships

We’ve partnered with some wonderful companies as a brand ambassador, including International Delight, Olay, Groupon, Hunt’s, and dozens more. We represented Aveeno in a multi-issue print and digital campaign in PEOPLE Magazine and PEOPLE en Espanol, and Motrin in their “My Unstoppable Mom” Campaign (including various nationally syndicated televised commercials + ads alongside Kelly Ripa).

We enjoy working as a brand ambassador with a company that we feel we can proudly stand behind, because it gives us the opportunity to get to know the people and product we are representing, and to work together to develop and explore lots of unique and fun ways to promote these products. If you are interested in hiring us to work on a campaign as a brand ambassador or for print/media work, feel free to contact us. Please include all relevant information in initial email.

If you’d like to work with us to share a product or service with our readers, please contact us directly by email with all relevant information in the outreach email. If it is a fit for our demographic, we will be happy to respond with available publishing dates and current rates. We write thoughtful reviews, include quality photos and video, and promote the post across our social media.
