My ten plus year career on television means I always have a few things top of mind before I walk into a studio.
Not only do I have to be prepared on the topic that will be talked about for those few minutes viewers are watching me but I have to care about what I wear on camera.
Sadly, the contents of my closet, cannot be worn over and over. Yep, pretty much every segment requires a new look. That’s not stressful at all. And when the weather is crazy yo-yoing from cold to decently warm, it is hard to plan my look too far in advance.
But with the weather here finally stopping its spring fling back and forth between temperatures; I ran out last minute to try a few new spring looks to wear on camera this week.
And I had to find something to wear while keeping in mind, it was not my most favorite time of month. They say studio cameras add 20lbs, well… trust me, a few days a month I look even heavier on camera. (Thanks Aunt Flo!)
But the show must go on. Whether or not I’d rather wear fat jeans and curl up on my sofa.
While I can’t share my outfit looks yet until my segments air, I can share how I get camera ready in the morning. These are my go-to products in the morning before I leave my apartment to go in studio.
My medicine cabinet has so many products but on mornings where I have to go in studio, my essentials are front and center to make sure I don’t forget anything.
And when I get to the studio I have a few products with me in case I need something right before my segment. A little touch up with one of my essentials. Sometimes I have a product or two I’d rather one of the production crew not come across so I keep that zipper purse with me at all times.
Often, as soon as I leave the studio, I put my hair up in a bun or ponytail. I keep those Goody hair elastics on my wrist, in my coat pocket, in a purse.
Those elastics that came free with my U by Kotex Sleek tampons and Cleanwear pads purchase at Walmart are my go-to. (They are in select Walmart stores. See if yours has them! Low prices and a bonus accessory? Talk about a Walmart score!)
