Please note: I do not accept unsolicited guest posts.


To help support this site, I sometimes partner with brands I love, travel destinations and companies to feature resorts, products and/or services that fit with mine and my family’s lifestyle.

While I may mention products or brands that I love without getting paid for it, I will always disclose if and when I am being paid.

Amazon Affiliate links may appear when referencing Amazon products that we buy or use which means that our family makes a small commission from sales purchased through those links.

I’m selective in the brands and partners that I work with so that the products and services featured on this blog authentically represent who we are and what we love. That said, we are fun, we like cute shoes and the beach is our sanctuary, but Fun, Cute Shoes and Beach are not paying me to say that. We appreciate our readers and the opportunities this blog has created to help support our family.

If you are interested in a sponsored post, paid giveaway and/or brand collaboration and feel your product or services would fit with what you see on this blog, please contact the Sway Group at For paid banner advertisements on the sidebar of this blog, please contact me at

Clarissa Laskey is the adventurous and fashionable Mom behind the site Passports and Parenting. Clarissa is a wife and mom raising a multicultural, blended family. She has two fabulous kids (ages 15 and 9), and also dog Mom to two beautiful Labradoodles. Clarissa loves creating and sharing content about family and travel (especially Disney) with a fashionable focus. Clarissa strives to inspire families to live their best life.

Clarissa is a co-parenting expert and she hopes that her blended family’s co-parenting journey will help inspire other families.

Clarissa doesn’t let having kids slow down her wanderlust and instead encourages and teaches families how to embrace spontaneous travel. Clarissa considers her site to be a wonderful resource for parents to learn how and where to travel to both with and without kids.

The goal for Passports and Parenting is to empower parents to embrace the blend of life instead of trying to balance it all.

How Did Passports and Parenting Get Started?

My friends and family used to always joke around that Clarissa can explain it all, especially when it dealt with fashion, travel and parenting. Since I have always been passionate about social media and connecting with, supporting and encouraging others, I decided a few years ago, to make my dream of creating my own website a reality.

I am very proud of the fact that I have been able to inspire people when it comes to connecting positively, spontaneous travel, road trips and wanting to explore the world more.

The feedback, love and support I have received for sharing about my co-parenting journey constantly overwhelms me in a positive way, and encourages me to share more personal stories on my site that I hope people can continue to relate to.


I was a featured guest on the Today Show with Jean Chatzky (Investing 101: Expert Counseling on retirement saving), I have appeared on QVC for a philosophy beauty celebration, participated in multiple photo campaigns for Visit Philly, as well as written a couple of articles that were published on sites such as (Identity Theft) and (My Blended Family  – Huffington Post and Happy Anniversary to my Husband and Son – Huffington Post).
