Lisa Loeb has a rule: No phones at the table! “I always have a journal with me,” says the mom of Lyla, 9, and Emet, 6, whom she shares with husband Roey Hershkovitz, and that includes at dinner. “It’s filled with grocery lists, song-writing notes, Tic-Tac-Toe, and drawings and notes from my kids.”
The “Stay (I Miss You)” singer, 51 — who’s working on a new album — unzips her bag for Us.
Do Not Disturb
“I’m in the studio a lot and am also a full-time mom. It’s important for me to nap, so often I’ll find a safe place to park, lock my doors and put my Mack’s earplugs in.”
“A lot of friends tell me I’m like a kid. I always have snacks — a caramel Tootsie Pop, nuts, peanut butter pretzels from Trader Joe’s.”
Ready for Anything!
“I carry a mini flashlight because I’m obsessed with earthquake and natural disaster readiness.”
“My mom always says, ‘You’ve got to wear lipstick.’ It’s true — it makes you look more awake. I love MAC lipsticks.”
Quite a Spectacle
“My 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.”
