WELCOME beauties…I’m Christina!      

An itty bit about me: I’m a wife, mom of 3, makeup artist, self-proclaimed expert on all things frugal but fabulous.  My goal is to bring realistic and honest posts to this blog for busy moms who deserve to feel beautiful.


I married the love of my life, my best friend, my soul mate, Aaron.  We have been together since 1998 and each day he finds a new way to make me laugh.  We have three adorable little monsters.  Don’t let those precious smiles fool you, they are a handful.

I became a mommy on 8.12.05 when Mary, our princess, was born.  She is sweet, artsy, soulful and DRAMATIC…everything we hope for in a daughter!

On 8.22.08 we gave birth to a bouncing baby boy…or should I say firecracker! Matthew entered this world with the same enthusiasm he has everyday.

Our family became complete on 10.9.11 when we gave birth to our baby boy Michael.   He is our little energized bunny and definitely keeps us on our toes!

These monsters are the reason our home is full of chaos, laughter, love….and wine!  But we wouldn’t have it any other way.


I have worked as both a makeup artist and elementary teacher until the birth of my children.  Once they were born, I became a stay at home mom in Briarcliff Manor, NY.  My husband is the hardest working person I know, completely dedicated to his family and giving us an amazing life.  Once all three of our kids were in school, he encouraged me to follow my dream and use both my teaching and makeup skills to do what I love.  I started my freelance biz M3.Makeup, cleverly named after my three little M’s, and create this blog.

This blog is not just about makeup and parenting, its to inspire busy moms take some time for themselves to feel beautiful!

Thank you for following, I hope you enjoy
