15 Minute Beauty Fanatic


I'm a high maintenance girl, but definitely not a morning person! I'm juggling a full time job and very active toddler at home, so I want beauty products to actually work, and to do it fast!

What is your favorite place to find clothes for children?

I don't have a single place that I look for my daughter. I'm a fan of bright and fun colors without characters all over them. Each season I'll check out the Gap, Old Navy, Carter's and 77 Kids. Usually I end up with a combination of 2 or 3 of the stores.

What tips would you give to a mom who is trying to remain stylish while raising a family?

I think you need to stay true to yourself and if a trend doesn't work for you, then don't waste your time or money. Not every trend works for every person. I wasn't rocking a bright orange lip when that was "it", but I definitely embraced the BB cream craze.

What's one beauty product you would recommend to all moms?

A BB Cream! These creams are basically 3 or 4 products in one step. A moisturizer, anti-aging serum, light foundation and sometimes your daily sunscreen. It takes about 15 seconds to slather all over and can really pare down your beauty routine.
