This Influencer Dishes Out "Rich Mom Advice" On TikTok And I Would Like To Be Adopted By Her

Tips on how to live a rich life from the rich mom herself.

Like everyone else who is currently stuck inside, I've been using this extra time to catch up on shows, cook, work out — and, of course, watch a TON of TikTok. It's gone from an app I check just a few times a day to something that consumes my every waking hour — and there's no account I'm more obsessed with than @chrisellelim.

FWI: Chriselle Lim is a Korean-American fashion stylist, blogger and digital influencer. She is a well-known content creator with more than 750,000 subscribers on YouTube, 1.2 million followers on Instagram, and her own blog, called The Chriselle Factor. After starting out as a wardrobe stylist, she now uses her platforms to spread knowledge about fashion, styling tips, beauty secrets, and women's empowerment.

On TikTok, where she has more than 1.4 million followers, Lim posts her usual fashion and lifestyle content — but it's her "rich mom" persona that has made her extra famous.

Some of Lim's "rich mom" TikToks include her husband, Allen — AKA, “rich dad” — and her extremely cute kids, too.

The only 40 mins I ever get to myself is when the kids are playing in the bath. And I usually watch them from the toilet with some 🍷 #momlife

Getting tips on how to look (and feel!) glamorous from an aspirational mother figure has basically never been easier. If nothing else, Lim's TikToks offer a little sense of escapism and a way to fantasize about our own rich person alter egos.

In a recent YouTube video, Lim addressed her TikTok fame and talked about how "Rich Mom" is an alter ego who is meant to come across as someone who's "fabulous and has no shame.”
