Hands-on. Silly. Adoring.

What is one beauty product you can't live without?

Chantecaille Flower Harmonizing Cream - divine.

Do you have a life-saving / game-changing product / skincare/ piece of gear that has changed your life as a mom?

Honestly, baby wipes. I have them with me at all times in every bag and use them for myself and the kids. You can't imagine how many things you can need to clean when you are on the go.

JILLIAN DEMPSEY

Doting. Adventuresome. Grateful.

Describe your ideal mother's day morning.

Sleep, family snuggle followed by coffee/breakfast, dance party, and then I magically get to sneak out to yoga, guilt-free.

Quick! you have 15 child-free minutes—what do you do with them?

A walk through the 28th street flower market. Endlessly inspiring.

Describe your parenting style in 3 words.

Loving, honest, structured.

Arnica! It's a cure-all, and makes all boo-boos better!

What do you hope your kids learn from you?

I hope they learn to be open-minded, loving, gentle, kind, honest human beings. I hope they learn to dream big and follow their hearts, and pursue all of their passions.

TINA CRAIG

Creator of Snob Essentials & Bag Snob blogger & mom to 'the boy'

 

Describe your parenting style in 3 words.

Loving. Accepting. Boundaries.

My Chantecaille Future Skin foundation, even if I’m having an off day- it gives me a gorgeous glow.

Jacqueline Onassis and her famous quote- "If you bungle raising your children, I don't think whatever else you do matters very much."

MOLLIE GOOD

designer, Walters Faith and mom to Sophie & Emilie

 

Describe your parenting style in 3 words.

Oh boy... 1. Neurotic 2. Sense of Humor and 3. Compromise.

Do you have a life-saving / game-changing product / skincare / piece of gear that has changed your life as a mom?

Most definitely- Le Camouflage Stylo pen which I use under my eyes to conceal my lack of sleep.

Quick! you have 15 child-free minutes—what do you do with them?

Too little time to get a manicure / pedicure so probably read another 15 pages of a book I started before I had Sophie, in the hopes I will finish within a decade.

ALICIA LUND

blogger at Cheetah is The New Black and mom to Rex

 

Describe your parenting style in 3 words.

Relaxed. Silly. On-the-go.

Do you have a life-saving / game-changing product / skincare / piece of gear that has changed your life as a mom?

Growing out and tinting my eyebrows. It took about a year to grow them out to the fuller look I wanted but was so worth it. I now tint them and fill in with brow gel. I feel like I have my face on even if not wearing makeup, which makes my low maintenance beauty routine even simpler.

What do you hope your kids learn from you?

To be adventurous, how to be a people person, and to have a positive outlook on everything.

CLARE VIVIER

designer of Clare V and mom to Oscar

 

Describe your parenting style in 3 words.

Not a helicopter. [I try my best not to over parent]

What is one beauty product you can't live without?

There’s not just one. During the week, I cannot live without tinted moisturizer and a little blush, and would prefer a little more, especially at night when eye makeup is desired. On the weekends, I can forgo makeup entirely and just need a good, light moisturizer. If said moisturizer is 'anti-aging, plumping, or lifting', I’m not going to be able to live without it.

Describe your ideal mother's day morning.

Coffee and the paper in bed with all the time to enjoy both.

KIMBERLY SCHLEGEL WHITMAN

Editor-at-Large, Southern Living and mom to JR and Millie

 

Describe your parenting style in 3 words.

Loving, laid-back and organized!

Do you have a life-saving / game-changing product / skincare / piece of gear that has changed your life as a mom?

My husband started email accounts for both of our children when they were born. Of course, they don’t access them yet but it gives us an address to send notes and memories too! Sometimes we write down funny things they said or did, sometimes we attach a photo, sometimes we just copy them on family emails or travel itineraries. Everyone in my family has their addresses and they send little notes too! It is like a digital journal that is right at our fingertips all the time!

What do you hope your kids learn from you?

This is another one of those questions that has been on my mind a lot this year. I kind of get teary writing this because I don’t know that I have spent the last few years modeling what I really want them to see! Of course, they learn more from what we do than from what we say. My word for the year is “joy” so I’m trying very hard to make more of an effort to show them that I want them to be full of joy and spread it to others.
