Hello Babble readers! I’m thrilled to introduce myself to you as one of the new writers for Babble’s beauty and wellness blog.
I live in Manhattan with my husband and two sons and began my own blog, Glamamom, when I had my first son 3 years ago as a way to hold myself accountable, keep challenging myself, and reflect on my life as a parent and as an individual. I’d previously worked rigorous jobs in finance but decided I wanted more flexibility to raise a family and pursue my passions, which include style, beauty, fashion, and fitness.
Just think of me as your new neighbor who appears a little stuck up at first because her nails are always done and she wears high heels at inappropriate times until you invite her over and discover she curses like a sailor and can drink you under the table. I like to think it’s that combination of “girly girl” and “prison guard in a past life” that makes my perspective unique (you can check out all of my past beauty adventures here).
While I don’t consider myself a “beauty junkie,” I’m always on the hunt for ways to enhance and simplify my beauty routine and the latest trends to keep myself motivated and inspired, and am more than happy to talk your ear off about it. After all, I’m the only female in a house of 4 guys!
My posting schedule will be as follows but I’m most interested in exploring the topics you prefer to read, so please feel free to reach out with feedback and suggestions:
Monday- Try This (the latest beauty products to hit store shelves worth trying and why)
Tuesday- How To (beauty tips and tricks that help save time and money but make you feel like a million bucks)
Wednesday- Beauty Spotlight (Q&A with beauty professionals and bloggers for insider tips & tricks)
Thursday- Get the Look (my favorite celebrity look of the week and the products needed to recreate the look at home)
Friday- Beauty Roundup (in case you missed anything, the week’s must-read beauty stories)
I look forward to discovering together and adding a little glamour to your news feed…Jill
