Hi I’m Adanna! Let me give you a warm hug and welcome you to my online home blog.

I was born and raised on the beautiful island of Grenada. As an only child, I was always clueless and awkward around children. Now, I’m a 30-something millennial mom and can’t imagine my life without my three children. My first daughter is 7 years old, my son is 4 years old and my baby girl joined our family in November 2017.

Currently, my family and I live in New York City but I’m a free-spirit at heart with big dreams to travel the country and the whole wide world. You can read all about our family’s travels here!


I started Rattles & Heels in September 2013, as a virtual space to inspire, educate and empower millennial women to take care of themselves and look their best while parenting. This blog provides all of the tools moms need to get out of the sweats and regain their identity. Every post on this site is geared towards helping pregnant women or moms.

Here at Rattles and Heels, we celebrate moms in our signature series Mom in Heels. These interviews will inspire you. One thing that you’ll notice from reading them is that as mothers we are a community who share the same hurdles, dreams, and fears. Read all of the interviews here.

In addition to blogging, I enjoy creating beautiful things with my frequent DIY projects and drawings.




Besides blogging and motherhood,  I spend my time creating content for my client’s websites and social media channels. I hold a Master’s degree in Public Administration.
