Day in the Life of a Mom Blogger

This post is sponsored by Ivory.  Thoughts an opinions are my own.

Moms have a lot on their plates.  In addition to taking care of family and home, we still have to work and have dreams of our own.  I start every day with a to-do list a mile long.  I may be with my kids physically all day but sometimes I’m not there because I’m thinking about all the things I have to do.  Watch the video below to see how Ivory helps make the end of a busy day as a mom blogger more special.

About a month ago I shared on Instagram that I was participating in the #Olay28Day challenge using only the Olay Luminous line for my skincare needs. I have very dry areas on my face.
