Welcome to Penelope’s Oasis, and thanks for your interest! I’m Penelope Guzman, the mom of two boyd, living on Long Island, New York. I’m a pharmacist who secretly dreamed of being a freelance writer and photographer, thus the creation of my blog. I love to write about parenting, creating a home life that feels like a vacation, family travel to nature-focused spots, favorite healthy recipes and lifestyle tips, and simple beauty for busy moms. I’m particularly interested in working with companies to create content around healthy living, family travel (particularly around the United States), and engaging and educational activities for boys.
Penelope’s Oasis sees over a million unique annual visitors and, according to Alexa, has a readership predominantly of college educated women 21-39 from the US browsing from home. We are most active socially on Instagram. 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 social media content.
We’ve partnered with some wonderful companies as a brand ambassador over the years, including Lorex, Ralph Lauren, Groupon, Raymour & Flanigan, 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 and ads alongside Kelly Ripa.
We enjoy working as a brand ambassador with companies we can proudly stand behind because it gives us the opportunity to get to know the people and product we represent, and to develop and explore unique and fun ways to work together. To hire 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, and we will promptly reply to inquiries that are a fit for our site’s values and vision.
