I am being featured over on my girlfriend Kate’s blog as a part of her “Daily Rhythms” series. It really is quite an honor as Kate is a superb writer and experienced blogger. Her blog and Etsy shop are on fire right now and it’s electric to be even the smallest part of that.
Here is a teaser of my piece “Daily Rhythms of a Part Time Working Mom”. To get the rest you’ll have to head on over to sweetmamak.com
9:45 Ahhh I’m in the car alone. I’m ALONE! Sometimes I just sit in the running car for a minute and take it all in. I then make my 10 minute commute and bust through the doors of the beautifully crisp Saks Fifth Avenue. It’s 10 a.m. and the day is just beginning in the world of retail. We all have our hopes set high that this will be an awesome day. Today in particular is a special holiday event and fashion show. My job will be to quickly do the model’s makeup and then my appointments that start around 11. So I pick out a lip color for the day. That always sets the mood. Hmmm today it will be red, bright red. Chanel Pirate to be exact. I check the counter’s stock of this color before applying because what I wear I sell and will no doubt deplete their stock by the end of the day.
