Catching up with Wonder Woman Avis Richards

MM: We know how challenging it can be these days juggling motherhood and a career, what advice do you have for fellow Wonder Women?
AR: Fellow Wonder Women: find the balance. Make time for yourself. Eat well, sleep well, exercise, and find beauty in every day.

MM: I imagine working with so many charities can be pretty challenging at times. How do you de-stress after your day?
AR: I love my work and don’t find it stressful. Birds Nest provides a medium for social communication so that the many charities we work with have a voice. Working out, time with my husband and children and various hobbies certainly add the balance that I love.

MM: Between your impressive resume of work and juggling a busy schedule, you still manage to look flawless. What are your beauty secrets?
AR: I have been blessed with some pretty good genes “thanks to my mom and dad”, but eating healthy, sticking to an organic diet, drinking tons of water, and getting a great night sleep are the key to how I look and feel.

MM:  How would you describe your signature style?
AR: My signature style is to dress classic, modern, and chic.

MM:  What fashion or beauty item won’t you leave home without?
AR: I start and end my day with Juno Transformative Lipid Serum by Sunday Riley. Even if I don’t have time for makeup, I always put on mascara by Givenchy Phenomen’ Eyes; I will never leave home without Lanolips. You can only buy it in Australia or online; and if I’m on my way to a workout, ‘Save Your Do’ Gymwrap by Nicole Ari Parker keeps my hair looking great.

MM: What is your biggest guilty pleasure?
AR: Sneaking off for an afternoon of shoe shopping at Bergdorf’s. Who doesn’t love the latest Christian Louboutins? Then, just smiling when my husband asks “Are those new shoes?”
