Lisa Loeb has a rule: No phones at the table! â€œI always have a journal with me,â€ says the mom of Lyla, 9, and Emet, 6, whom she shares with husband Roey Hershkovitz, and that includes at dinner. â€œItâ€™s filled with grocery lists, song-writing notes, Tic-Tac-Toe, and drawings and notes from my kids.â€
The â€œStay (I Miss You)â€ singer, 51 â€” whoâ€™s working on a new album â€” unzips her bag for Us.
Do Not Disturb
â€œIâ€™m in the studio a lot and am also a full-time mom. Itâ€™s important for me to nap, so often Iâ€™ll find a safe place to park, lock my doors and put my Mackâ€™s earplugs in.â€
â€œA lot of friends tell me Iâ€™m like a kid. I always have snacks â€” a caramel Tootsie Pop, nuts, peanut butter pretzels from Trader Joeâ€™s.â€
Ready for Anything!
â€œI carry a mini flashlight because Iâ€™m obsessed with earthquake and natural disaster readiness.â€
â€œMy mom always says, â€˜Youâ€™ve got to wear lipstick.â€™ Itâ€™s true â€” it makes you look more awake. I love MAC lipsticks.â€
Quite a Spectacle
â€œMy Lisa Loeb Eyewear line has a really cute case. Sometimes when I go for a walk, I just take my glasses case and put my credit card, tissues and [money] inside.â€
