Molly Sims

BCM: How did your life change when you became a mom?

MS: Your life changes completely!  There is a perfect little being that becomes the center of your universe. The word selfish ceases to exist. 

BCM: What has/have been your most memorable moment(s) as a mom?

MS: We call it the Stuber family kiss.  It’s when Brooks puts one arm around my neck and the other around Scott’s and pulls us both close and the same time for a kiss.  I hope we keep that moment going on for a very long time!

BCM: What has been the biggest challenge for you in motherhood.  Any advice for new moms?

MS: Wanting to be six places at once!  I had to learn that you can’t be everywhere and everything for everybody.  Being a new mom can be overwhelming.  Do not get hung up on being the “perfect” mom.  There is no such thing!  When Brooks was first born I drove myself a little batty  trying to make everything just so.   You do the very best that you can and that becomes your perfection. 

BCM: Congratulations on your first book, The Everyday Supermodel: My Beauty, Fashion, and Wellness Secrets Made Simple. What was your inspiration that led you to write this lifestyle book?

 

Molly Sims book launch book coverMS: If you look good, you feel good and EVERYONE deserves to feel good!  I’ve been blessed to work with incredibly talented people in fashion, beauty and wellness and I love sharing all the tips and tricks I’ve learned through the years.  I’m the one my girlfriends call for advice.  Think of my book is a “hotline” to all my secrets.

BCM: Can you share some Secrets Made Simple for expectant moms? What are your go-to products while expecting this time?

MS: I’ve moved toward eliminating all chemicals in my home cleaning products.  I really like the entire line from Murchison hume.  For beauty products that are pregnancy safe, I like Indie Lee. I use an organic non-aluminum deodorant.   I love using almond oil on my skin, too.

BCM: You’re expecting, promoting your book, have Brooks at home — how do you manage your work/life balance (and always look great doing it)?

MS: I firmly believe in work hard/play hard and I really strive for that balance.  I’m the queen of making lists… Santa Claus has nothing on me!!  From “to do” lists to making a list of my goals for the year, I do my very best to stay organized so I can be productive.   

BCM: What are your favorite activities to do with Brooks?  What has been your bestmolly sims familyvacation so far as a family?

MS: We love to bake together.  Brooks loves helping me in the kitchen.  He’s my number 1 taste tester… especially if we are making cookies!!  Any vacation where we can swim!  We all LOVE the water.  If there’s a pool, beach or ocean;my little family is all over it!
