Happy Valentine’s Day to us! Our Makeup Drive was a Success

boxes of makeup You realize in life, you make time for the things that are important, even where there’s no time. Generally when it comes to New York Fashion Week  there’s no getting ahold of me — literally it’s the 2 week span my friends and family know not to call or text because I’m completely unavailable. Well right before the designers hit the runway, I was forwarded an email from the non-profit, Family-to-Family, which was working on a special drive in honor of Valentine’s Day, collecting unused cosmetics to help distribute them to women in homeless shelters on the 14th.

(yes, it’s my baby.) And with that I have something very much relate to these busy moms that need no-nonsense beauty and fashion tips, electronics that save time and everyday advice to make life that much easier.  So when the queen of mom blogs, Nicole Feliciano, founder of MomTrends hosted her annual beauty event filled with educational guests including Caryn Effron of GoGirl Finance and Beauty Director, Valerie Monroe of O, The Oprah Magazine, I was all in!
