So You’re a new mom, how have you settled into motherhood. In what ways has motherhood changed you?
I love it, nothing can really prepare you for the emotions of giving birth and having a child. It is beyond euphoria, and even still, I can’t believe that I created her. It is so incredible that is so hard to believe. I learned to be very patient, where before I wasn’t patient at all. I learned to be more excepting then ever and everything is the way it is supposed to be.
As a mom what do you do to de-stress? Do you have any go-to spots?
I workout and enjoy long walks on the beach. To de-stress, I take hot bubble baths & treat myself to a massage. Once in awhile I indulge in some retail therapy!
And how do you stay so fit?
I walk every where, I rarely use a car. I use portion control when I eat, but I eat & drink what I want. The key is to drinking lots of water, I drink at least a litre of water a day. I do 100 sit ups every day & 25 squats!
What your fav thing about being a mom or most surprising thing?
For sure, the “Cuddles” is my favourite thing. The most surprising thing about being a mom is that everyday there is something new like, a new look, a new gesture, a new movement, a new expression, and a new euphoria that comes along with it!
Did you have any go-to favourite pieces? Fav things in your closet?
My new jogging jeans by diesel, I literally live in them & a black t-shirt from Aritizia. Most of the time when I go out, I am in athletic wear because I walk every where.
What are your favorite children’s wear brands or how do you choose to dress your baby?
As girly as possible, I really like all the brands, I don’t care about the brands so much. Its more about how it looks and feels.
What about beauty routine? Any favorite products?
I use all Kiehl products on my face. I use a Cover Girl BB cream & a loose powder from Laurier Mercier with YSL mascara, Nars blush, YSL le touché éclat highlighter, & Mac shimmer powder.
