Mom Hack | My Secret to Productivity

This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own.


I don’t know about your daughters, but Ava is lipstick obsessed. Lipstick, lipgloss...really anything that has color and she can rub all over her face for a beautiful toddler makeup look and she is entertained for hours. And did I mention it’s adorable as heck but not so fun to watch her run past everything white we own in the house? Hey, the photos make up for those mini heart attacks, right?

So of course, Ava’s one reason I own a million and one lip products but the other reason?

I’ll tell ya. (And duh, it involves myself.)

I’m not a big makeup person. I’d take no makeup any day of the week and that’s something I do love about my self confidence -- the fact that I feel comfortable leaving the home without anything on my face. It makes my life a whole lot easier.

But you know what else makeup does to me?

It makes me unproductive.

Seriously. That’s a true story.

The days I wake up, put mascara on or even a quick beautiful lip color, the more productive I am throughout the entire rest of the day. And when I say productive, I’m talking about like 340% more productive than on the days I don’t put anything on. Oh yeah, that and actually getting out of my mom uniform (ahem leggings and baggy tees). Basically, that’s my secret to being a productive work-from-home mom. So you’re welcome for the best tip in the books!

Give it a try and let me know how it goes!

And guess what?! I’ve got more exciting info for ya in the form of beautiful colors at inexpensive prices. A mom’s perfect recipe.
