True Botanicals Giveaway

May 7, 2018

I’m so excited to share the first of seven giveaways happening this week in celebration of Mother’s Day. Each day (today through Sunday) I’ll be giving away a $500 credit to a favorite brand that has become a staple in my everyday style as a woman and a mother. So don’t worry, you won’t be left out if you’re not a mom, you just have to help celebrate one around you that you love. Details on entering below!

So what’s at the core of my daily routine? A good skincare regimen… 

It’s no secret how much I love True Botanicals. I started using their products exactly a year ago and haven’t turned back. While I love the toxic-free ingredients, the people behind the brand and the simplicity of the line, at the end of the day it’s about how well it works, and all their products do. I literally panic a little inside when I see one of my bottles running low and rush to restock it.

Their latest product launch—the Resurfacing Body Mask and Body Oil—is here just in time to help us shed that winter skin so our limbs are radiant and glowing for the sunnier months ahead. I’ve never been one of those girls with perfectly smooth, flawless skin—I work for it with a healthy diet and exfoliating. I get dry skin easily (especially on the backs of my arms) so I’m always trying different ways to enhance that smooth, glowy feel. You name it I’ve tried it. The things that worked in the past were loaded with chemicals, which made me think there wasn’t an alternative. But the first time I tried True Botanicals Resurfacing Body Mask, I knew right after I put it on and felt that tingle (just like the Resurfacing Face Mask, my other obsession), that it was going to be good. My skin was not only soft but had that dewiness to it, especially when I slathered on part II of the treatment, Pure Radiance Body Oil—which leaves me feeling like a goddess.

How many kids to you have? Age? Spence, 23, Glyn, 23, Kate, 18


What’s the best part of your day? I would say that the best parts of my day are the times that I am feeling a deep connection with nature, my family, my friends and my co-workers.  Time spent in nature and with my people are both so important to me.


What’s your least favorite part of the day? Doing the dishes because by the time we are done eating dinner, I am pretty ready to do nothing.  


Owning a business and being a mom is a juggling act. What things have you found that make it easier? There are only so many hours in the day so what I try to do is prioritize how I spend my time rather than push myself to accomplish more.  I think that can be so exhausting and unhealthy. So if I take on more at work, which has been happening a lot lately as we grow, then I look at my responsibilities at home and figure out what I can outsource.  My Mom was great at reminding me that I should do that and she often comes to mind if I feel overwhelmed. I hear her asking me, what will make this easier on you? I think that is so important. Either that I get some help or I figure out what can I take off my to do list.  It is easy to think that everything has to happen right now and then I remind myself that few things really do.


What’s one important thing you do for yourself on a daily basis? I definitely prioritize my skincare ritual because it really makes a difference and I enjoy it. I also take a dead sea salt bath most nights. It is so incredibly relaxing.


How many kids to you have? Age? I have two daughters, ages 13 & 15.   


What’s the best part of your day? Coming home to the people I love.  We have a really cozy house, so everyone pops out of wherever they are to greet me, even our dogs.  It’s amazing and makes me feel so lucky.


What’s your least favorite part of the day? That moment where I struggle with the alarm telling me to get up and go to Soul Cycle.  So hard to do at 5:00 am, but totally worth it.  


Owning a business and being a mom is a juggling act. What things have you found that make it easier? I do work that I am really passionate about with a team of great people who are equally committed to our mission. Spending the time away from my kids to do something so worthwhile feels ok; whereas, in the past when I have had jobs that I didn’t care as much about, the tradeoff was far more difficult.


What’s one important thing you do for yourself on a daily basis? I drink a ton of water and make an anti-inflammatory juice of fresh tumeric, ginger, lemon, mint, celery and apple.  The hardest part of traveling is I don’t get to drink my daily juice!

Thank you to True Botanicals for supporting this post, all opinions are my own.
