Your Name: Kim Rowley
How many children do you have? Four! Taylor – 17, twins Macy & Mallory – 14 and Tatym – almost 10.
Your Business Name: Key Internet Marketing, Inc.
When do you make time to run a business with your busy MOM schedule?
It’s not easy! Luckily all of my kids are school age, so my main business hours are while they are at school, but working from home, I have the flexibility to attend field trips, sporting events, etc. I also work before the kids wake up and after they go to bed a lot, sometimes needing a nap during the day!
What is your favorite beauty tip?
I splurge on a few items as I find the extra money is worth it for these products…
Bliss Thinny Thin Chin (eliminates my double chin)
Imju Fiberwig Mascara (makes your lashes look longer & thicker)
Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel (eliminates puffy eyes instantly)
O.P.I. Nail Polish (color lasts a long time without chipping)
What did your mother teach you about beauty and fashion?
My mother is a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant, so she always is trying to teach me new stuff.
What beauty/fashion tips will you be sure to share with your daughter, niece or neighbor girl as she grows?
I have three daughters, two of them teenagers that are now giving me fashion tips! One of them wants to be a cosmetologist, so I let her fix my hair on occasion.
What is your favorite outfit in your closet and why?
I have a black velvet cocktail dress with diamond accents with matching shoes that I bought to attend a friend’s wedding, but I ended up not being able to attend as my god-daughter’s baptism was that same day. I’m still waiting for the special occasion to wear it.
What’s your favorite online site to shop for beauty or fashion?
Once I find a product I like, I stalk eBay.com to find it for less than retail!
What motivates you to look your best?
Being a single mom in the dating scene again, I obviously want to get “gussied up” for dates. But I also tend to work better and feel happier when I know I look nice. I don’t always work in my pajamas. 😉
As a mom, “Me Time” is limited… what are your time saving beauty tips?
I multi-task – nothing like having a frozen pizza in the oven and a wrinkled shirt in the dryer while I apply my makeup and talk on speaker phone. And I bought a straightener that works on wet hair to eliminate the drying process.
Name one product you can’t live without:
Clinique stay-true oil-free makeup – this is the only foundation I’ve found that covers well and isn’t greasy on my oily face.
Heels or flats? Describe your favorite pair.
Heels! Being a shoe addict (I’m the self appointed president of Shoeaholics Anonymous), I have hundreds of pairs of shoes. I’m particularly drawn to brown mules; probably have a dozen pairs of those. But my absolute favorite pair of shoes is my brown D’Orsay pumps that look great with dress clothes or jeans.
Lip gloss or Lip Stick? Which brand/color?
Both! I prefer glossy mauves with sparkles. No particular brand, usually what’s on sale.
Editor’s Note: Great product suggestions, Kim! I love to know what other moms are using and loving!
