About Us

Who We Are

She’s a Full on Monet is a digital lifestyle magazine for anyone who identifies as female. We seek to be a diverse, inclusive resource for women who feel marginalized by traditional media, and we’re committed to building a community where all female-identifying individuals are welcomed, accepted, and fully valued as they are. In a world of well-curated social feeds, it’s important to show the good as well as the bad. Nobody is perfect or happy all the time — we all struggle, and what’s going on behind the camera is just as important to share, because that’s how we find real connection.

At She’s a Full on Monet, we value diversity, inclusion, community, and sustainability. The brands we highlight have similar values, and we’re always looking for new inclusive and sustainable companies to partner with.

This is a place where it’s okay that we aren’t perfect. We don’t need to be a sample size or someone’s “target demographic” — our voices and stories are important. Our lives are rich with meaning and full of love, laughter, joy, sorrow and tears. We get to make them our own.

It’s okay to get up close. You’ll see some flaws — in fact, it might be a mess. But there’s beauty in that. Embrace all of it. This is a place where everyone is welcome and the dialogue is open to all.

Are you a fan of She’s a Full On Monet who would like to add your voice to the dialogue? We are always looking for fresh voices and new perspectives. This is a community of like-minded women who all have something valuable to share.

What we are looking for: personal essays, interviews, Q&As, articles about topics you’re passionate about, stories about events in your life that changed you or helped you grow, topics you think we should be covering, motherhood, marriage, all the things that bond us as women. We love art, cartoons and graphics as well!

Right now we are not accepting fiction or short stories of any kind unfortunately.

If this sounds like a good fit for you, email us at [email protected] and give us a brief idea of what you think you’d like to contribute. We can’t wait to meet you!

The Monet Team

Kelly Castillo


I’m a mama hen whose chicks have flown the coop. Now I stay busy with a ranch full of animals, reading, and working on this site. I have seen every episode of Forensic Files, can never find my AirPods, and prefer gas station snacks to gourmet food.
