What’s your best creation? (besides your kid):
My podcast Gloss Angeles with my co-host Kirbie Johnson
What does your morning routine look like?
I wake up and get Zoe and we have coffee (me) and breakfast (her) together
What’s a skill you have that no one knows about? I'm pretty good at karaoke, but only real ones will ever know
What beauty brand should Freestyle mamas be on the look for?
I am obsessed with all things Sunnies Face and I’m so happy that they’re finally here in the United States. I’m Filipino American so it makes me incredibly proud that this is a brand born in the Philippines that celebrates the beauty of our country. But aside from that fact, the products are so good and I think anyone would appreciate all of their gorgeous products.
How about the Freestyle babies?
I love Pipette so much and it’s one of the few brands that I trust using on my daughter Zoe. I love that their mission is rooted in sustainability — all the products are vegan, hypoallergenic and made with the planet in mind. The sunscreen is so good and I even use it on myself.
