When I first hopped on a Skype call with Jennifer Fudge, she was smiling with a sparkle in her eyes. She was excited but also a little nervous at the thought of allowing someone to take control of her look as it's something she has usually done herself. She found that raising her six month old and three other children was making it harder and harder to make time for herself. And she's had the same hair and makeup look for a long time – she wasn't sure how to change things up and needed a refresh!
Jennifer is also one of our influencer panelists who helped select the eight moms we sent off on a weekend getaway with. As a YouTuber for The Family Fudge, Jennifer understands and knows the importance of looking your best but wanted to learn how to look good in less time. And she wanted to be able to set the same example to her followers.

We learned some great tips and how-to’s from celebrity hairstylist Dusty Simington of Salon Gregories as well as from our very own Dream Team that we’re sharing with you today:
TIP #1: If you're looking to add bangs to your hair style and have close set eyes, create a wider distance with the bangs so it opens up the eyes and adds depth and dimension to your look.
TIP #2: Fashion trends tend to come back around, so hang on to your classic style outfits and pieces.
DAISY: Do you have any children? If yes, how many children do you have and what are their ages?
JENNIFER: Yes – 4 kids. 7, 5, 3 and 6 months
DAISY: How much time do you think you need each morning to get yourself ready?
JENNIFER: 20 minutes
DAISY: What do you feel needs improvement with your current style and look?
JENNIFER: I've had the same hair style and make up look for a LONG time. I'm not sure how to change it up. Also, my hair and makeup routine takes too long, to be honest.
DAISY: What's your unique story that you'd like to share with the world?
JENNIFER: My name is Jennifer. I am sweet AND nutty, just like fudge! I am a busy home- schooling mother of 4. My kids are 7, 5, 3 and 6 months old, so yes, life feels crazy AND loud most of the time! I tend to be a people pleaser and often put myself last. I have recently learned that to be a better and less stressed mom, I HAVE TO make time for myself. It's not always easy, and sometimes makes me feel guilty. I started a youtube channel as a creative outlet for myself and to hopefully help other moms who struggle with the same things I do. Through my videos I share things I'm passionate about. I love to share recipes, organizational trips, diy projects, family travel, parenting strategies, homeschooling tips, menu planning and so much more! I try to end each video with an inspirational thought or quote.
