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. 

When I'm not chasing after my four children, I can be found at Cool Mom Picks and Cool Mom Tech, where I'm co-publisher and CEO.  


Sipping on:

Anything with tequila. Or just tequila.

    I've dated a bunch of guys over the last year as a newly single mom and inevitably the conversation gets to sex. And as a sex columnist and writer, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to get insight into what men think is the biggest turn-off in the bedroom.

    Well. Let me just say that not only were the answers pretty much consistent across the board, the turn-off was something that I would never have thought would have made the list in a thousand years.

    But worst of all, a lot of women do it. Including you.

    Every time I walk into a public place, I am shocked and appalled at all the terrible style choices moms are making.

    You may have had kids, ladies, but you're certainly not dead.

    Since I can't nominate each and every one of you for a Stacy London and Clinton Kelly aka TLC's What Not to Wear intervention, I'm going to give you a small one of my own.

    Please, for the love of fashion, stop wearing these 5 things right now. You're beautiful and radiant, but these looks aren't doing you any favors. And they're hurting my eyes.

    I've always been a relatively thin person, dropping the baby weight after each of my four kids pretty quickly, but turning 38 hit me hard right in my midsection. And the back of my arms.

    And oh, hey there thighs!

    I've always been pretty active, maintaining a very healthy (and low-carb) diet, working out always daily, and generally remembering to stretch after I'm done. And if I fall off the wagon, I'm usually back into my pants with a little extra exercise and calorie watching.

    But just lately, I've noticed a distinct change in my body, mostly that my pants are tight in weird places. Turns out, I've been making these five exercise and diet mistakes that are probably not helping my cause. Are you doing them too?

    I was one of those anti-plastic surgery, anti-hair-coloring, au naturel kinds of people until I could count my crow's feet and my hair was more gray than brown.

    Granted, I've yet to go the Botox route (and am not sure if I will), but I definitely get my hair colored and happily pay an arm and a leg for it.

    Yes, I realize home hair color has gotten a lot better over the years, and some folks can't afford the trip to the hair salon every couple of months.

    But I'm here to tell you that it's so worth it. And it's not as expensive as you think, all things considered.

    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.
