Carol and the Cosmetic Calling
I’m Carol, and I’m a mother of three lovely boys living in Birmingham, Alabama. As a single mother I have to navigate through the difficulties of raising three kids, working a full-time job, and pursuing my passions. When I’m not focusing on my kids or at work my true priority is cosmetics and skincare. Sephora is my second home. Really. I go at least once a week and I can’t wait for new releases from Philosophy and Sunday Riley. Trying new serums, face masks, and moisturizers is like Christmas morning and Thanksgiving dinner all wrapped in one for me.
The title of mother is one I fully embrace, but it is only one aspect of my identity. Mother, Woman, Lover, Fighter, Entrepreneur, Trendsetter, and Go-Getter are other words I use to describe myself. Being honest with myself has gotten me where I am today.
I’ll leave you with my favorite quote of all time by Ralph Waldo Emerson:
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
