Krysta Masicale

I'm Krysta Masciale, 33 year old mom to baby Gio. I live in Los Angeles with said tiny human, my husband and two pups. As the CEO of B!G DEAL BRANDING and advocate for women in the workplace, I've felt particularly responsible for leading by example. I shoot straight and feel proud to be a part of the mommy tribe (I had no idea how badass you all were until I realized how intense it is! Sorry for judging you!). I have a secret obsession for office supplies that is only half as impressive as my ability to give two shits about looking like I have it together as a career loving mom.

Finding Focus & Goal Domination in 2017

Social media is shitty for one reason: I just find myself thinking, “Why do they get to have that life? I want that! I deserve that!” And the second I said those words outlaid to a friend, I knew something needed to change. While…

Who Run The World? Moms!

I’ll be honest. I used to think girls were just whiners. And while I think some definitely are, I think it’s important to note that I am now a strict advocate for the power that exists inside of every single woman on this planet:…

Snapping Back Isn’t Real When You Don’t Recognize Your Own Body. Three years ago, I decided to push myself physically for the first time. I trained and ran the LA Marathon and it was one of the most glorious experiences of my life. When…

Treat Yo Self

I was putting on my bra one morning when my husband said, “Seriously. GET A NEW BRA.” He’s not an ass. I promise. To be fair, the ONE BRA I was wearing day in and day out was a nursing bra I got while…

Second Baby Syndrome

I wanted it to be more about me this time around. There, I said it. I mean, people were really into celebrating our first kid. We had showers and gifts and designated girl time so I could soak in life before motherhood. This time,…
