It’s summertime. The kids are out of school. Your crazy routine just got ten times crazier.

MrsMuffinTop is here to help. 

Guest-Curator-mrs-muffin-topHi!  I’m Jacqui, the creator and head author of MrsMuffinTop.  

I love taking my iPhone with me everywhere now that I have Next Issue!  I read my favorite magazines while I’m at the doctor’s office (no more 5-year-old print issues in the lobby to pretend I enjoy), or when I’m waiting for the water to boil while making mac and cheese for my three kids. 

I definitely understand the problems that come along with a packed schedule, especially during the summertime. I hope you enjoy my picks on simple summer beauty hacks and lifesaving parenting tips (everything from discipline to keeping the house clean and comfy to what to make for dinner tonight).

Happy Reading!
