Hi. I'm Kristen. Not Krissy. Or Kris. There's a difference. After having kids, I left life as a college music professor and became a writer, sex book author, and host of the CafeMom Studios' show Coffee Shop Confessions.
For the most part, I've always been pretty conservative with my makeup, keeping it pretty simple (if any at all) during the day and then maybe jazzing it up with a little eye shadow in the evening.
I know, crazy, right?
Well, lately I've become addicted to YouTube make-up tutorials, which have really helped me take more risks with makeup. Not only are they cheap and easy, they can make you look so much more pulled together.
If you've been remiss to go a little nuts with your makeup, here are 5 trends you should totally try.
Believe it or not, I'm a big fan of pornography, which tends to make most moms give me a raised eyebrow or a judgmental look. I'm certainly not a porn addict by any means, I enjoy watching for my own pleasure and education.
I hear way too many moms complaining about how they don't want to have sex or how their sex lives are boring and well, I don't really have much sympathy because these days, there's just no excuse.
There are all sorts of fun things you can do in the bedroom to spice things up that you're probably just not willing to try. And hey, we tell our kids "you can't say you don't like it if you don't try it" when they turn their nose down to a new food.
Guess what, moms? The same thing applies to sex. So loosen up that darn chastity belt and stop being such prudes.
I've done my fair share of eye-rolling when I see moms with huge fake breasts. I mean, the risk of surgery alone would be enough to deter me from having an elective cosmetic operation, but I could also think of about 4,000 other things that would be more worthy of spending that kind of money on than new big boobs.
And honestly, are those women really doing it for themselves like they say?
But after four kids and the pregnancy weight gain and weight loss, I have to admit that I now understand why women do it.
