Mod Mama Emily Elizabeth Young is a do it all influencer, fashion blogger and native Arkansan! She describes herself as a “crazy busy mom of 3”! We caught up with Emily to talk about some of her new quarantine activities and how to balance being a mom during the ongoing pandemic.
Young has been spending her downtime binge watching TV series while staying at home. “I’ve started watching TV which I used to never do,” Young said. When asked what her current favorite is, she said, “I’m binge watching Downton Abbey.”
With the new norm of working from home, her style has changed to adapt. “I love an easy, comfy dress,” Young said about her go-to WFH look.
“Hot coffee first thing! Then I usually head to barre class. I like to get my workouts out of the way early!” Young said about her daily morning routine. Her nighttime routine is more relaxing, “Once I get my kids to bed (which keeps getting later and later) 🤦🏼♀️ I usually watch a show or read a book to unwind! I also take a bath and try to relax!” What a great way to end the day!
Staying focused at home with her family around can be difficult, but she said, “I try to wake up before my kids and set some kind of goal for the day!”
Young’s summer workouts include a variety of activities such as “Barre, bike rides, walking the dog, and lots of pool days.” Keeping active is an important part of her daily life, and even in the summer she makes working out part of her daily routine.
“In the summertime I love a good salad with fresh fruit and some form of protein! Recently Greek yogurt and granola has also been a fave! Oh and avocado toast for breakfast!” Young says about some of her current summertime faves. She even jumped on the banana bread trend during quarantine which she enjoyed sharing with her family.
Young’s favorite instagram account right now is @emilyanngemma because, “she has the best style, beauty tips, her house is goals, and her kids are soooooo adorable.” Young has been trying to make the switch to clean beauty products, so she has “been loving biossance skin care recently.”
A must-have for any handbag that she buys is that it can’t be too heavy because it hurts her back, Young said. She has been loving the belt bag trend recently (haven’t we all!), so GDD bags have been perfect for her!
Young has been able to bring her GDD bags everywhere this summer, from her barre classes, to the pool. They are the perfect bags for any occasion! They are comfy enough for Young to bring everywhere!
