Michaela Birmingham is the head of studio for Scary Mommy, where she creates brand stories and video campaigns for our online community of millions of moms. She stars in the Scary Mommy original series “Momsplained” which gives straight talk advice on how to tackle everything motherhood sends your way. She’s also a mother of two daughters, and a freakin’ triathlon athlete, so to say she’s good at multi-tasking is kind of an understatement. (Did we mention she's given a Ted Talk on Motherhood!?) We asked her what products she couldn’t live her busy life without.

Micaela's Product Picks

Revlon Blower Brush

Revlon Hot Air Brush

Run don’t walk to order this new invention from the gods who understand that no mom has more than ten minutes to do their hair. I have long thick hair and this magic wand gets the job done to salon standards in under ten minutes from dripping wet.

Bowie Retro Tees

Bowie Retro Tees

No matter how tired I am, some jeans and a vintage Bowie tee help me feel alive. I think I have five in my collection, the softer and the more faded the better.

Bose Sound Sport Headphones

Bose Wireless Headphones

I will never be able to keep track of mini individual earbuds. These ones actually stay put while running, or taking a client call in Trader Joe’s. Also when I fall asleep watching Handmaid's Tale these are soft enough to not butcher my ear drums.

Tocca Travel Sized Perfume

Tocca Travel-Sized Perfume

Smelling good while on the go is my go-to. This amazing scent has notes of Italian Citrus and Freesia. It never hurts to throw one of these travel-sized fragrances in the suitcase on a work trip, since it won’t get flagged by TSA.

Gap One Piece Kids Rashguard

Gap One Piece Kids Rashguard

My kids hate to have sunscreen applied and I’m not the best about reminding them after the first application. This one piece suit means less wrestling a slippery body because it gives full sun protection on the upper limbs. I’m all for #winning instead of #burning.

Camper Right Nina Sandals

Camper Right Nina Sandals

These are my fave summer sandals for two reasons: one, they gracefully fit my size 11 monster feet and two, they come in kids sizes so my girls and I can match like a Camper girl squad (with no blisters!).

Gap One Piece Kids Rashguard

Mio Water Enhancer

This stuff tastes great, recharges electrolytes and is the only way I drink enough water in a day. It's small enough to fit in your bag or desk drawer. And when people ask why my water glass looks purple, I say keep walkin’ mister, I’m hydrating here.

Camper Right Nina Sandals

Madewell Crossbody

I love a crossbody when out and about with kids because I can keep my hands free. This is just big enough for my phone, wallet and Purell (because kids are gross). And Madewell made my day by embossing my initials for free.

Summer Kick-Off!

Sun's out, fun's out, Mama. Here's what we love about summertime: no school lunches to pack, flip-flops count as real footwear, and messy foods can be eaten outside (#nonapkinsneeded). Here's what we don't love: bathing suits that ride up and kids whining about sunscreen. Luckily we've got solutions for both.
