HOW HAS BECOMING A MOM CHANGED YOU?
Becoming a mom has honestly just humbled me. You go through life taking so much for granted and then all of a sudden you are just simply amazed by the smallest things. I will rock them to sleep and just think "wow look at what we did" and just get overwhelmed with emotion. Creating a life is seriously nuts & it just puts everything into perspective.
HOW DO YOU STAY CONNECTED WITH YOURSELF AND MAINTAIN WHILE ROCKING THE MOM-LIFE?
Working is something I just couldn't let go of because I love it. I decided when I had our first baby that I needed a better work/life balance so I work 4 days a week and spend 3 with the babes. I am an interior designer and I personally just needed that creative outlet to feel complete. I also listen to music....nonstop! Designing & music just put me in my own little world which realigns me.
WHAT IS YOUR MOM UNIFORM?
I just wear what feels right each day but I can't say I have a definitive style. I love basics because with two kids under three I am not trying to iron and think about it each morning. Right now you will usually find me in high waisted skinny jeans, sneakers, and a tee shirt. Comfortable is key when lugging my tank of a 9 month around.
WHAT HAS BEEN THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’VE RECEIVED?
He probably doesn't even realize it but the best advice usually comes from my husband (he might not read this bc he hates social media so don't tell him). I was always worried about what everyone thought and one day he just said "who gives a f//k if they don't like it or you." He was right- I don't have anything to prove. I have a good head on my shoulders & will always be my loud greek self with a heart of gold. People can see that or decide to judge without knowing. With him supporting me I feel like I have knocked down all those walls & just let go and feel so much more myself.
WHAT IS IN YOUR BAG?
100,000 receipts all coffee & diaper related.
5,000 shades of lipstick bc I am always putting it on after I smother my kids with kisses
BEYONCE OR LAURYN HILL?
Beyonce if I have to pick! I love old Lauryn Hill but how can you not love beyonce right now? Give me 6" heels all day (except I am more like flat fringe sandals)
WHAT SONG ARE YOU LISTENING TO ON REPEAT?
One song? I always have a few on repeat depending on my mood so here are my current obsessions: Lewis Del Mar: Wave(s)- The xx: On Hold- Marian Hill: Got It- Lupe Fiasco: Wild Child
CELEBRITY CLOSET YOU WANT TO RAID:
Cara Delevingne without a doubt but I also want to steal her eyebrows. She has that cool laid back vibe that I am all about.
