When do you make time to run a business with your busy MOM schedule?

Although my laptop stays close to me all day, the majority of my work is done first thing in the morning while my son watches cartoons, during naptime and late at night after he finally goes down for the night. It’s not unusual for me to work until 2am and then be up at 8am with the boy.

What is your favorite beauty tip?

• Use an inexpensive exfoliator like St. Ives on your whole body, not just your face.
• Using body oil/baby oil on top of lotion give your skin a soft sheen.
• Shave with cheap hair conditioner instead of shaving crème, leaves your legs silky smooth.

• A great smelling lotion can be used on pulse points instead of perfume.
• Keep a small tube of Aquaphor with you at all times for lip gloss in a pinch, dry cuticles, chapped lips or bits of dry skin.
