What I wish I was doing all day ... swipe on ... what I was actually doing today. 💛 Moving is exhausting. Like motherhood, it requires lots of planning, drinking, and planning to drink. And that’s all the wisdom I can muster at this hour. COMMENT: Anyone else feel like it’s Thursday already? 💛 we got this mamas ... we just don’t got sleep 😅 #mondayevening #mamaneedsrosé #momneedsanap

Juggling being a world- renowned dermatologist and a within-your-world renowned mom, is no easy task. But, @drwhitneybowe my guest, today, on #hustlelikeamom does just that!

In our mom chat, we talk about her book The Beauty Of Dirty Skin, her favorite beauty products, how she juggles motherhood, and the keys to sun safety for the family. In a separate video, she’s also giving us mamas the dish on the benefits of probiotics and the beauty of good bacteria. 💛

With arms wide open I embrace the week ahead focusing on:
Dignity towards humanity.
Devotion for family.
Determination to live.

This weekend, was a mix of laughs and loss, birthdays and a funeral, the celebration of amazing human beings that have lived thru some of the most epic moments of the 20th century - Soviet Union communism, Holocaust evacuation, Warsaw concentration camp, Chernobyl power plant explosion, the founding of Israel, the best and worst of humanity.

Many speeches of praise were given. And I walked always with two key lessons learned:
1. be more connected, physically connected and present for your family and humanity - truly be the change! Don’t just hashtag a cause, commit to being a vehicle of change in your community, even for one human, a real in-person force of change💛
2. appreciate the wisdom and history of the elderly. In many cultures, the elders are praised and valued, not pushed aside like we often see in the states. Call grandma, take her out, make her laugh by just being there. Consider volunteering at a senior home, bring the kids along! I’ve always wanted to take my beauty closet samples and do a day of beauty at my grandma’s senior care center ... shit why not do that!! Anyone want to join me for something like that? 🙏

Here's to sunny days and the weekends where we can be silly and have a great time. I cherish making memories, and I’m in love with the preschool stage my munchkins are in right now. Any chance I can keep them in this adorable bubble for a while longer 💛COMMENT: Any other mamas in the adorable bubble, wishing it never pops? 💛 #preschoollife #momoftwo #staythislittle

Motherhood isn’t perfect. I’m not perfect. The kids are not perfect. No day is perfect. Life is Wabi Sabi - perfectly imperfect.

When you accept that nothing is perfect, everything actually looks perfectly imperfect. Marinate and meditate on that as you head into a summer weekend full of plans, pools, parties, picnics, perfectly imperfect memories, and other p words I can’t think of because I’m perfectly out of brain cells, after a perfectly long #campmom day of cuddles meets crazy. 💛

PS check in it my girl @candicekumai new book + podcast which is full of Japanese wellness wisdom, including more thoughts on the art of Wabi Sabi. 💛 #wabisabi #perfectlyimperfect #fridayfunday

As moms, we feel guilty when we’re at work, we feel guilty when we’re “just” domestic, we feel guilty taking a nap, we feel guilty when the house isn’t perfect, we feel guilty when we take time for our workouts or our manicures. Enough with the guilt. 💛

I’ve been trying to catch myself from falling into that rabbit hole of guilt, and just focusing on living my own version a happy life. What does that mean to you? What does it mean to live with more joy and less guilt? What would make you a happy mama? 💛

For me, happiness means being healthy and strong, so I’ve committed to three workouts per week. And this summer, that means the munchkins join me for my Friday workout with @bfitnewyork @rehabnyc. 💛

They draw or play on a magic carpet (aka a meditation rug) while I work out. They see that mom is also getting strong, plus I love introducing fitness and healthy living. My fav moments are when they get off the magic carpet and run my way for “huggies” which means my side planks become extra hard to hold, but extra sweet. 💛 COMMENT: How do you make time for your joy, and push guilt to the side? #guiltfreeliving #fitmoms #hustlelikeamom

I love all things healthy and happy so Wellness Wednesday is always a great chance for me to share healthy finds that are rocking my world, and I hope will rock your too.

Currently, I’m obsessed with @organic_pharmer_ny co-created by Dr. Susan Blum, a Functional Medicine wiz 🙌 whose insights on gut health and whole health wellness has changed my life! Anywho, she is the medical genius behind this place (two locations in Westchester) which is all about delicious plant-focused foods, juices and smoothies that are #glutenfree #soyfree #dairyfree #eggfree. What the chefs cook up is epically good on your taste buds and your gut health. 💛

Their avocado “toast” with lox is off the charts amazing. And def try the zucchini basil frittata. You can order some food and drinks online, but next time you visit me at the new house, remind me to take you to @organic_pharmer_ny so you can load up on more healthy goodies.

NYC humidity is no joke! Even if mama did have time to get her hair done every day, Mama Nature would frizz me out the moment I stepped out of the salon. Recently, I discovered the glory and glam of @lele_sadoughi headbands. •
You will literally feel like a queen in these happily bejeweled, hide-the-unwashed hair, help-me-out with the frizz headbands. Whether you live in humid NYC, or steamy Miami, we could all use some help with our hair, especially when managing munchkins during the summer is quite time sucking. So, sometimes the best option is to just put a chic hair accessory on, so you can #HustleLikeaMom in style. #momhair #summerhair #simplehairstyle 💛

If moms were given as much respect as the Queen of England, treated with as much awe, viewed with such reverence, mamas would be much happier. So, here’s to a new episode of HUSTLE LIKE A MOM, we’re moms are properly praised for their work in and out of the home.

This morning, on #hustlelikeamom I am chatting with @karen.giberson the president of @accessoriescouncil. The council is a not-for-profit trade organization, representing over 300 accessories companies including mama hustlers like @rebeccaminkoff @lele_sadoughi and @alexwoonyc . Karen draws parallels between mothering her two grown children and the care needed for supporting so many designers/brands. She also shed light on how motherhood, and views on moms in the corporate world have changed since she gave birth to her first child 23-years ago. 💛

Brazilians just get sexy - hence the Brazilian bikini, the Brazilian wax (because of the bikini!) fab #HustleLikeaMom @gisele and the new Bod Buff from @SoldeJaneiro that I’m slathering on this evening for Mom Sunday Spa Night.

This brand is all about taking care of your skin, keeping it soft, golden and silky smooth by using the bountiful secrets from the Amazon. The Bod Buff is an exfoliating scrub in the shower or mask if used on dry skin, that incorporates crushed Brazilian quartz crystal that scrub off dead skin skills ever so gently. Did I mention it seems as amazing as the sultry beaches of Rio? When you start to use anything from @soldejanerio you’ll know why it’s so hard to stop - the smell of pistachio, salted caramel and cupuacu butter will get you hooked. 💛

PS you have to also try cult fav Brazilian Bum Bum Cream - a firming lotion I slather in nearly every night on my buttocks, outer thighs and lower abs!! COMMENT: Do you have any silk skin secrets from your culture? #MomSundaySpaNight #brazilianbeauty #skincareroutine

It’s another day of Camp Mom! Please don’t apply ... currently only have room and patience for two 😀.

Off to the pool to practice swimming, and blow some bubbles. I love long and lazy summer days, hanging by the pool with the munchkins. But, I also can’t wait to blow off some adult steam and party tonight in Manhattan, for a friend’s 35th bday bash 🍷💛. COMMENT- What are your plans today? Any time for #adulting #momsnightout ?

The best dresses are the ones that you can wear for any occasion and jazz up or down. I love my @ramybrook dresses especially the sleeveless Paris Dress. 🙌 From sunny yellow, to regal purple, I have so many colors, and never seem to run out of ways to style it. 💛 Check our my instastories to see just some of the ways I’ve worn this dress from press previews to play dates, from date night in the city to TV shoots. 💛 PS keep an eye out for @saksoff5th for amazing sales on @ramybrook or just snag your fav pieces on her shop ASAP!! (I’m guilty of doing both!) COMMENT: What is the one item in your closet that you can where anywhere? #fridayfashion #effortlessstyle #momstyle
