Hey babes, I’m so excited to start sharing a bit more about our Blush Babe Tribe. I will be introducing each beautiful lady to you guys by asking them a series of questions. I hope it helps you to get to know them a bit more. Each woman has an amazing story to tell. This is just the beginning. You will be seeing tons more of them as the year goes by! Each one of these babes had a mini session with me!
If you’d like to be a Kim Lyn Brand Ambassador feel free to email me at Kim@kimlynphotography.com for more information! Openings for the Blush Babe Tribe will open again next year but applying to be an Ambassador is always open!
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself:
a. Name, age, job, hobbies etc (your three words to describe you)
Hi! My name is Tiffany! I am a 27 year old stay at home mom, wife, and co-owner of LashBarRI. I have two beautiful kids and a husband that rocks my world. I enjoy eating authentic Cambodian food, lifting weights, and of course, makeup/lashing! I would describe myself as, a perfectionist, introvert, super fly mom.
2. What is a typical day like for you?
A typical day for me would be getting about 5-6 hours of sleep (we still co-sleep with our 9 month old) getting up at the crack of dawn to feed and change the baby and by that time, I’m waking up my oldest for school. While my oldest is getting ready, I pack her her lunch and get her backpack ready for school. Once that’s done I start to pack the baby’s bag, clean bottles and getting him ready for the day. I then take a breather on the couch, stroll through IG, like some photos and then it’s back to getting my daughter ready aka braid her hair. By this time I am already exhausted, so I drop my daughter off at the bus stop then rush back home to get ready for lash appointments. But before I head off to work, I’m either dropping the baby off to my moms/sisters or he tags along with me to work. Its true what they say, it takes a village to raise a child! Back to my day, after a few appointments, it’s time to pick up Camille at the bus and I’m running back home to get her ready for either softball or swim while trying to get food in her belly! After all the after school activities, it’s finally dinner time and by this time I barley have the energy to cook. My husband and I opted for meal prepped foods since it fits our hectic lifestyle. So dinner is all set and bed time it is for the kids! Finally time to relax and watch LivePD, just kidding I’m scrolling through IG! But yea, thats basically my everyday!
3. On hard days, what motivates you to get up and start your day?
My motivation is my family. I look back at where we first started and it was almost at the very bottom. I got pregnant at such a young age and did not have a stable job. I am beyond lucky to have had a boyfriend at that time, husband now, who worked his buns off to support me and my pregnant self. He worked 3 jobs, 7am to about 3am. I barley saw him, but I knew he was doing his best to make ends meet and move us out of a house in which we shared with a friend. My wish at that time was to be a stay at home mom and he promised that it’d happen one day. Ten years later, he made it happen and I will never forget all the things we have been through to get to where we are now. I am grateful for him.
4. Who inspires you to live your best life?
My Mom and Dad inspire me. They are my favorite people. They lived a tough life back in Cambodia, going through the Khmer Rouge before coming to the U.S. Hearing stories of what they had to go through makes you appreciate life a little (lot) more. I love that my dad was such a hard worker and never complained about anything. He was always telling me that I should open my own business, and what do you know- I did! And I hope that one day I am able to give them everything like they did for me. Shoutout to my mom for cracking the whip (still to this day) on me a couple few times! I now understand how hard it is to raise kids. I love my parents.
5. If you could go back and tell your 13 year old self something….what would that be?
I would tell my 13 year old self to be confident and that it was okay to raise your hand in class because you knew the answer but was afraid to answer thinking people would make fun of you. I would tell her that it was okay to have your heart broken by someone who thought you weren’t pretty enough to be their “girlfriend” (gosh so young) and that you didn’t have to pluck your uni brow to fit in with everyone else. I’d tell her to be yourself and who cared what everyone thought of you because you’re pretty freaking amazing!
6. What is your favorite quote?
“No beauty shines brighter than a good heart”
7. You are inspiring women to stop hating and start loving themselves and each other, what piece of advice would you give them?
Honestly, I’d say try putting yourself in the other persons shoes before judging because you never know what that person is going through. Also, if someone looks mean…just say hi! They actually might be really nervous or shy to say hi first!
