What’s Your Beauty Routine?
I usually wake up at 5 a.m. and the first thing I do is check my emails. I shower at 6 a.m. and wash my hair every morning (occasionally I’ll skip a day but that’s not very often) with WEN products. I love their cleansing conditioner. I’m not a big makeup girl so I only use Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, a little MAC blush and some mascara. I always wear a nude lip and fun, bright colors on my nails. I use my morning routine to test exciting new products that GLAMGLOW has in product development.
For breakfast, I have a cherry blossom tea latte—it’s my favorite—for a perk without caffeine jitters. Sometimes I’ll have fresh fruit but if I’m indulging, I’ll have a jalapeño cheese bagel.
I choose my outfit based on what I’m doing that day. If I have meetings or distributor in town, I choose something dressy but if it’s just an office day, I’ll wear jeans, a cute top and heels. If we’re flying overseas, I wear a casual outfit in the airport and then change into my pajamas the minute we get on the plane. A girl’s got to be comfortable!
It usually takes me 50 minutes to get out of the house. My husband, Glenn (joint CEO) and I take our daughter, London to school and then I head to the office.
Describe A Typical Day At Work
There are two types of days at GLAMGLOW. When I’m at the office I typically have two conference calls followed by production and product development meetings. Then, I meet with our staff to discuss what they have going on. It’s very important to me to have a great relationship with them. For lunch I have salad with iced tea.
If I’m traveling overseas, I will immediately respond to emails and voicemails that have come in during our flight. I go for store visits, have meetings in the afternoon and business dinners at night and then I’m back to the hotel to check in with the office and to Skype with London. We are out the door by 8 a.m. for press events that last all day and I usually get back to the hotel around 1 a.m. The next morning, Glenn and I head to the airport to fly to the next country where we do it all over again. We typically do this for a week at a time.
What Do You Do After You Leave Work?
I love Barry’s Bootcamp [and] make exercise part of my weekly routine. I come home and help London with her homework, then have dinner with my family. Since we’re so busy, we have a chef who comes to the house to cook several times per week to prepare us nice, healthy dinners. I’m a vegetarian so she usually makes as Asian stir-fry with tofu or quinoa with stuffed peppers, which is one of my favorites! After dinner, I get London ready for bed and then I’ll answer a few emails and then spend time with Glenn. I usually get to bed around midnight.
What Do You Find Most interesting About You Beauty Routine?
I think the fact that I work in the beauty industry but don’t use a lot of beauty products. I like products that are quick, easy and simple to use. Coconut oil usually does the trick. For me, beauty can’t be complicated.
What Would We Be Surprised To Know About You?
I was never an entrepreneur. I was a very corporate employee who worked nine to five, Monday through Friday. I was scared to death to quit my job to focus on GLAMGLOW but the company was growing so quickly that I had to take the leap. I also still get excited about everything good that happens with the business. If a customer emails to tell me how much they love a product or someone posts a great review, it makes my day.
