Daily Diary: Full Day Of Filming For CVS Beauty In NYC


We had a fun day shooting in NYC yesterday despite the RAIN and the COLD. I had an 8:45 hair appointment at Dry Bar in the Meatpacking District. So, I left my house before 7AM in an attempt to make it. You know I was still late. UGH! The TRAFFIC! I had to drive in because I was bringing in a thousand bags. No way I was taking the train.

They honored my appointment thank goodness! The weather was actually on my side. The place was DEAD. Did you know that Dry Bar gives you a complimentary umbrella when it’s raining? I thought that was amazing!!!

We ended up shooting 5 videos for CVS Beauty. I talked about my coupon addictions (but in a non-crazy way… at least I think I didn’t sound psychotic????), showed off our 5 minute faces, and even took a $50 beauty challenge! I had so much fun!!

Love when you work but it doesn’t actually feel like work. Those are the best kind of days!

It took me over 2 hours to get home. I walked in the door and the kids gave me a huge hug and then demanded dinner. Wait… what? Thank goodness I had some beef chunks and stir fry veggies waiting for me in the fridge. I threw everything in a pan and called it a DAY.

Pretty sure I was in bed by 9PM and I am not ashamed of that little fact!! This morning, Bill let me sleep in a bit which was nice. 8AM isn’t really sleeping in for college kids… but for adults it’s MAJOR!

Today, I’m catching up on emails and playing with my little man. Feels good to be in my robe.
