4 Simple Things Moms Can Do to Stay Beautiful



Me and my son Marius at Century City Mall's Mother's Day event.


The Mother’s Day celebration at Century City Mall reminds moms of what truly makes us beautiful: happy and well-disciplined kids, a healthy family, and regular “me time.” Becoming a mom and talking to moms make us realize that as we age, beauty is really more about how we feel inside than how we look outside.

Century City Mall does a great job of celebrating motherhood and reminding moms of what we can do to stay beautiful inside and out.
