A Simple Morning Routine for Busy Moms

This post was sponsored by Vera Wang Fragrances as part of an Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.


I believe in self care and have talked about it a few times on the blog. You can check it out here, here and here. 

I think it's one of those topics I won't stop talking about or encouraging moms to practice because I believe it is so vital. My morning routine is pretty simple for self care.

Once I've finished eating I will either grab a quick shower once Josh has headed to work or grab some dry shampoo if I'm in a hurry and quickly throw my hair in a braid or with hair clips.


My go to makeup is Bare Minerals. I love ALL of their products and have never had any problems with breaking out using them. I have extremely sensitive skin and have broken out pretty severely with Neutrogena and MAC in the past.

I use:

Bare Minerals eyeshadow, mainly the royal reign
Bare Minerals mascara flawless definition, black
Bare Minerals eyeliner round the clock, midnight

If I will be getting together with friends or spending a day out in the sun I will put a light coat of Bare Minerals complexion rescue on for extra protection.


That's all the makeup I use maybe some lipgloss occasionally but I am constantly drinking water so it just rubs off fairly quickly.

Once I am dressed and makeup ready I will sprinkle on some perfume or body spray. My main go to is anything I have recently grabbed at Victoria Secrets but recently I was introduced to Vera Wang Embrace perfume and am absolutely in love with the Magnolia and Gardenia smell!! It is light and airy but leaves a lasting fragrance that reminds me summer. Vera Wang Magnolia & Gardenia is a dreamy fruit and floral fragrance. It's perfect for day to day mamahood and those extra special date nights out with Josh that happen once a month in our home.



I was a little timid that it would smell over powering or too much but it is just perfect. And the best spots to spray it? Behind your ear lobes, on your wrist and a spritz in front of you and walk through. Ta-da! You are ready to charge through your day of little people and tackling that never ending laundry. Feeling confident you smell nice and beautiful too :)

If you want to try it, head to your local Kohl's and grab one! You will love it for summer time and it is the perfect pamper yourself gift to finish off your morning routine of self care.

Also! Your chance to win one of 10 fragrance kits (retail value $75) includes 4 of the following:

  • Green Tea & Pear Blossom
  • Rose & Vanilla 
  • Periwinkle & Iris 
  • Marigold & Gardenia
