Hot Moms Club founder, Jessica Denay joined me recently to share tips for new moms, offer advice on how busy on the go moms can find balance in their lives, discuss ideas for meal planning and much more!
Candace Rose: Can you tell us about The Hot Moms Club?
Jessica Denay: "The Hot Moms Club- when we say hot, I want to establish that hot means confident and empowered. It doesn't matter what age you are, what shape or size- every mom is a hot mom. So at Hot Moms Club we work hands on with celebrity moms and we also get to test the newest products, the greatest products and we sift through what you need and what you don't need. Our whole goal is we're a resource to help make life easier for moms, and I've got some great products here that will do just that."
Candace Rose: What are some of your favorite tips for new moms?
Jessica Denay: "Well, for new moms, especially those moms that are dealing with the teething stage there's nothing more unsettling than seeing your baby in pain and going through the teething. I love Baby Orajel Naturals and these are great. This is the quick dissolve teething tablets and this is wonderful because it's the first and only homeopathic offering from Orajel, and what's great about this is it uses chamomile to ease the discomfort, so this is safe and it's also an effective teething pain reliever. You can go to Orajel.com for more information."
Candace Rose: Do you have any advice for busy on the go moms for dealing with stress and finding balance in their lives?
Jessica Denay: "Moms that want to balance it all, I always say you have to eliminate your time waster. We do so many things that waste time and you'd be surprised at how quickly that adds up. They did a study that said moms spend eight hours a week doing laundry- I believe it! That's equivalent to a 9-5 work day. So now you can actually eliminate 20 minutes per load of laundry- that's two and a half hours a week. This is the Mega Capacity TurboWash washing machine from LG. They have the largest capacity in the industry. They fit more clothes per wash and you can fit king sized bedding, sheets and your comforter all in one load of laundry. So instead of doing three loads, you're doing one now so that saves time in itself. Not only are you saving time, but you're also saving energy, literally because this earned the Energy Stars most efficient designation, so you're saving money on your energy bill as well, so it's a win-win for everybody. You save time, you save energy and also- look how good they look! Dads are going to want to help do the laundry with these gadgets, when your washer and dryer looks that good. You can go to LG.com, and you can get more information about this fantastic washer and dryer set.
And speaking of laundry while we're on the topic, one of my favorite things that's so convenient- I'm a girly girl, I like to smell good- this is Gain's Forget Me Not dryer bar. You literally just pop it in the dryer and you don't have to think about it for three months. The clothes still smell great and they come out with no static cling, so you can just put in there and forget about it for three months. And if you want a little extra scent this is Gain's Fireworks in wash. This is a scent booster and what you do is you just sprinkle a little bit of it in your washing machine and the scent stays on the clothes for 12 weeks. Now, I also have a son so you've got to keep him smelling fresh, and moms of boys understand what I mean. For me personally, when I smell good, I feel good. When mom's happy, you know the saying- 'everybody's happy."
Candace Rose: How about when it comes to meal planning. What are some quick and easy snacks the whole family will enjoy?
Jessica Denay: "Well, I love taking my son to the farmers market. We go every Sunday and what's so great is when you have healthy foods and options in the house and you teach them from an early age and you make it fun for them, it's so much easier to cook and to eat healthy when you've got those options there and that's a great activity. It's a great thing to do with your family, so it's not only a fun family bonding time but then you're bringing that great food and great nutrients back to the table and I also like to cook with my son. It's a great way for him, when we're making healthy things; when he makes it, he has ownership and he'll be more inclined to eat it- eat his vegetables and eat his fruits if he's actually helped make it."
