    Tell us a bit about yourself and your family 

    My daughter Chloe is a dancer and loves to help everyone, even homeless dogs:) Henry, my son is the smartest guy I know and hard working too!

    What is the best thing about motherhood? 

    Watching them grow into incredibly grateful and kind people!

    How do you balance being a creator/your work life and having a family? 

    Not easy, but I really try to focus on them by 7pm every night.  Also on the weekends I give them 100% of me:)

    How do you relieve yourself from stress? Any particular routine you do? 

    I book an appointment every morning for a workout so I am accountable to show up!  It de-stresses me and gets me energized to start my day.

    What’s your must-have self-care product? 

    Dry brushing I do before I get in the shower.  Then once I am in the shower using Nakery Beauty Body Wash is like a spa in a bottle.  Then when I get out I used the Nakery Pressed Oil melt all over.  Makes me feel red carpet ready!

    What is something you’ve always wished to receive on Mother’s Day? (Doesn’t have to be a product) 

    A day away with my kids and husband:)  no phones, no computers…no electronics at all!

    Tell us a bit about yourself and your family 

    Hi! My name is Brittany Clouse and I am a southern mama and wife from Kentucky. I have two 2 year olds (and no they aren't twins). I had my babies back to back and they, along with my full time job as a social worker, part time social media influencer and greenhouse farmer, I stay very busy. I have been married for 5.5 years to the most loving husband. 

    What is the best thing about motherhood? 

    The best thing about motherhood is feeling the greatest love you could ever imagine every single day. I love my babies so incredibly much and watching them grow, experience and learn new things brings me so much joy! 

    How do you balance being a creator/your work life and having a family? 

    The way I balance everything going on in my life is just remembering why I am doing the things I'm doing, embracing the busy seasons and prioritizing what's most important in the moment. Being busy is a blessing and I try to never forget that.

    How do you relieve yourself from stress? Any particular routine you do?

    To relieve stress, I love taking long bubble baths and watching The Real Housewives.

    What’s your must-have self-care product? 

    My must-have self-care product would be a good self-tanner. I feel so much more confident in my own skin when I'm tan.

    What is something you’ve always wished to receive on Mother’s Day? (Doesn’t have to be a product) 

    Something I have always wished for on Mother's day is something handmade by one of my kids. I'm not sure they are quite old enough to create anything for me yet, but I know the day is coming and I can't wait to hold on to it forever.

    Tell us a bit about yourself and your family! 

    My husband Shekhar & I are techies by profession and have been blissfully married for a decade now. We are travel companions for life who love to travel and explore the world one place at a time. I wear many hats but the most cherished one is mama to 2 beautiful toddlers Aiyaana (4) and Yuvain (2) . My little ones are my biggest cheerleader and 24/7 fitness coach who keeps me on toes all day 😊

    What is the best thing about motherhood? 

    Nothing fascinates me more than realizing how truly unique yet so adorable each kid is.

    How do you balance being a creator/your work life and having a family? 

    Time management is the key. I do a lot of content creation early in the morning especially in Summer to get the right kind of balance as I walk a tightrope juggling between my family and work. Also, I conceptualize my content beforehand to create a good blend of reels and Static posts without too many trips.

    How do you relieve yourself from stress? Any particular routine you do? 

    Being a mom of two, a techie and a content creator, sometimes it’s hard to prioritize myself. I try to enforce Self-care on a weekly basis. My self-care routine can be as simple as going for a drive and grabbing a coffee from Starbucks for about 30 min or going for nail spa (I am a nail addict)

    What’s your must-have self-care product? 

    A good cleanser

    What is something you’ve always wished to receive on Mother’s Day? (Doesn’t have to be a product)

    I cherish little and simple things in life, like getting up in morning to bouquet of fresh flowers or as simple as a card with handwritten note.

    Tell us a bit about yourself and your family!

     My name is Anita, I’m 58, a Christian, and I live in Florida. I have five Children, seven Grandchildren, and have been married to my Husband for 39 years. Over the course of my life I have been a Homemaker, Educator, and an Entrepreneur .

    What is the best thing about motherhood?

     Seeing my Children flourish as kind, caring, respectful, and independent adults is one of the best things about motherhood.

    How do you balance being a creator/your work life and having a family?

     Family has always come first, and when I find some free time I dedicate it to creating on Instagram.

     How do you relieve yourself from stress? Any particular routine you do?

    I try to find a quiet place to decompress. A warm bath and a scented candle are always calming to me.

     What’s your must-have self-care product?

     If I had to choose one thing it would be EOS Lip Balm, I use it morning and night and it always keeps my lips soft and smooth. 

    What is something you’ve always wished to receive on Mother’s Day?

     Just spending the day with my Children is the best gift.

    @carolinareal 

    Tell us a bit about yourself and your family! 

    My name is Carolina Real and I work in the fashion and beauty industry creating content for mostly luxury beauty and fashion brands. As a content creator, I place focus on sharing my sources of inspirations, styling tips, product reviews, brand launches, and event coverage in the hope to inspire my audience to be the best version of themselves. I enjoy creating beautiful content, but more importantly, I like to lead with a genuine message.

    On November 2021 my husband and I welcomed our first child Nicolas to the world. For the past 5 months I have been busy being a mommy which has been the best job in the world. Being a mom has changed my life completely and yet I love every bit of it.

    What is the best thing about motherhood?

    The best part of being a mom is unconditional love. Motherhood has been such a fulfilling experience. Everyday I’m learning, laughing, loving and living in the moment. Motherhood has given me a true sense of worth and purpose. The best thing about motherhood is getting to help mold a little human being. 

    How do you balance being a creator/your work life and having a family?

    My main priority is my son so I base everything else around him and his schedule. Now that he is 5 months old and has a more predictable schedule, I am able to get more accomplished. I make sure to give myself a window of time to create content, spend time with my family and have some me time. It’s important to have a routine and stick with it. 

    How do you relieve yourself from stress? Any particular routine you do?

    If I am feeling stressed I go out for a walk in my neighborhood to get fresh air and clear my mind. I also like to take a bath or sit in my sauna. 

    What’s your must-have self-care product?

    I can’t live without a pair of comfy pajamas, a good smelling candle and a face mask!

    What is something you’ve always wished to receive on Mother’s Day? (Doesn’t have to be a product)

    This is my first Mother’s Day as a mom and the best thing I could ever receive is my son. I can’t wait to spend the whole day with him!
