#MeaningfulMeMoments

MOST RECENT

I love my Sunday Spa Night - even if it’s 15-minutes for a shower, a simple body oil indulgence followed by a coconut collagen latte (see link in bio for recipe). Tonight, I’m pampering my body with @10&Co for Mom Sunday Spa Night.
πŸ’›
β€’
@10&Co are all natural Pure plant oils. It’s the ultimate skin squad for clean beauty. Skin meets oil. Oil meets skin. It’s the meet-up we all want to join. I am using the Mother Lover tonight- it is rejuvenating body oil, loaded with an antioxidant-rich blend that soothes irritation and lightens scarring. It’s ideal for baby bumps, to help avoid stretch marks, as well as all mamas seeking extra mother lover for their body. I focus on my inner and outer tights, which stretched quite a bit during both pregnancies. πŸ’›

With my new website launching this week, god willing πŸ™Œ, I’d love to know ... COMMENT: What is your beauty dilemma? What do you want me to test for upcoming Spa Nights? what product are you searching for and just can’t find? πŸ’› I’m here to help find you time-saving beauty and wellness tips, and remind us all that we need to carve out time for #MeaningfulMeMoments. #momSundaySpaNight #SkincareRoutine

Ever since, my first experience in a Himalayan salt room, I’ve always wanted to buy a pink salt lamp. The color alone is so soothing, but it’s the respiratory benefits that really won me over. πŸ’›
β€’
I visited @breathesaltrooms several times over the last few winters, particularly while I was conjestes and recovering from a cold. I left each time feeling revived and able to breath like a normal human being. πŸ’›
β€’
That β€œfeeling” is natural wellness wisdom that my Russian family, as well as many other cultures, have long known - the pink salt is the sh*t. It releases healthy negative ions into the air, which improve freshness. Inhaling these ions can help with inflammation, reduce mucus in lungs, and alleviate symptoms of asthma, bronchitis and certain allergies. When you eat the salt (FYI I get my pink salt @costco !!) it can help balance blood sugar, improve your body’s hydration and help with muscle cramps. So, I’m super excited to light up my Himalayan salt crystal lamp tonight, and breath in some good vibes, good ions. πŸ’›

COMMENT: Do you own a salt lamp? If so, have you noticed any benefits from it? Has anyone tried this to help kids during winter cold season? #wellnesswisdom #himalayansaltlamp #eveningroutine

#tbt to being on one of my favorite morning shows @abc7dc #goodmorningwashington πŸ’› Mamas, I am getting back into hosting and being on TV sharing time saving beauty/style tips, tricks and mom life essentials. Stay tuned for my segments on your local morning show, coming this summer. PS a special virtual hug to TV anchor @larrysmithtv (hands down my fav male morning anchor + the fun Regis to my silly Kelly! You will be missed in DC, but I hope to work with you in other cities soon) COMMENT: What topics would you like to see in my next TV segment? #hustlelikeamom #meaningfulmemoments #momlifehacks

Memorial Day weekend is coming up and that means the unofficial start of Summer road trips and quick local getaways.

Recently, I started using the @bubblebumusa an inflatable, deflatable, portable and packable car booster seat for kids aged 4-11 weighing 30-70 pounds. Simple inflate via mouth, loop into adult seat belt (see instastories for info) and you’re all set!
It’s served me well when we drive into Manhattan, park in a lot and have multiple stops, thus requiring to Uber from one adventure to the next. Bubble Bum is ideal if you want the kids to go with grandparents or their favorite auntie, on a mini trip, giving you some extra time for #MeaningfulMeMoments.

When #MomSundaySpaNight is just a massive nap ... you might be a mama!
πŸ’›
β€’
β€’
Today, I wanted to share with you my most relaxing foam rolling pose - the Jesus - which helps relax the whole body after a long day of being on your mama feet, chasing after munchkins. But, I went for a quick 45min nap at 4pm, that turned into a 4.5hr pass-out session. (Sleep mass + ear plugs do help!! πŸ˜‰)

So, this is life with a nanny? πŸ™ŒπŸ€ͺπŸ˜ƒπŸ™ not going to do this often, but it’s a massive privilege to finally have help whenever I need to work, do stuff for myself or just .... take a killer #powermom nap. Now, time to play with those kiddos and show the nanny how we do shower+bedtime.

What’s on your agenda this evening? I’ll be up (thanks to his nap) so let’s do a moms who wine at 9pm. #Sundayvibes #sundaynap #messyhairdontcare #momneedsabreak

It's time for Sunday Spa night once again and today I am playing the role of jolly-green giant with @thisworksofficial new Detox collection.
πŸ’›
β€’
β€’
I absolutely love πŸ™ŒπŸ’›πŸ’› their products because they deliver clean targeted skincare solutions. Tonight, I am doing the evening detox mask, followed by evening detox exfoliation. The mask is an anti-pollution purifying mask with Malachite & Kaolin clay for a 10-minute skin care solution that tingles the skin upon application and feels amazing and fresh upon removal. For more about this colleci n, keep following. I’ll do a full review when the new site finally goes live mid May!! πŸ’‹πŸ’›

It’s been a crazy two weeks of first family vacation, two very sick kids with two visits to ER, sleepless nights in odd neck-cracking positions, crying kids ... ya, standard mom life that we all experience in one form or another.

I’m delighted to have a peaceful night to myself ... and my face. Tonight, it’s all about tea for the soul, and a coffee bean mask doe the face. #meaningfulmemoments #hustlelikeamom

Mom Sunday Spa Night is here πŸ’›
but let’s kick it up a notch. Today on the blog (πŸ”— link in bio) I’m sharing scoop on the my recent pampering weekend @sanctuaryaz_ πŸ™Œ it wasn’t easy to plan childcare for this trip (and I will likely not have this much help for a very long time!!) but it was worth the effort to hustle and carve out those tranquil days of spa bliss. πŸ™Œ I was able to fuel up my mind, body and soul + bond with my mamaBFF @interiorsbymichelle πŸ’›
I cant say it enough - self care isn’t selfish! πŸ’› As mothers, we nurture all the time, but we often forget to feed ourselves - literally and spiritually. Take time out for yourself - make sure your husband, family, even close friends know that you deserve #MeaningfulMeMoments #MomSundaySpaNight and even an occasional pampering weekend away. πŸ’› #mamaste

Sometimes, motherhood feels like the ultimate Olympic sport, with new challenges and struggles by the minute. That’s why it’s so nice and essential to take time away for yourself. This morning, I’m enjoying the crisp Arizona air, and embracing the golden β˜€οΈ sun. Even though I have meetings all day for @vasculitisfoundation it is nice to squeeze in a few me moments, reflect on the blessing of being here, and set my intention for the rest of the day. πŸ’› Mamas, I’m wishing you a happy healthy and love-filled Friday. πŸ’› I hope you can take a moment for yourself - be it a walk, a quite cup of tea or a nice yoga stretch! #meaningfulmemoments #fridayvibes #mommymetime

#tbt In honor of the Olympics starting tomorrow, I'm throwing it back to skiing in Utah! All mamas do so much whether they Hustle from home, Hustle in the home, Hustle everywhere 😜... we all deserve me time πŸ™ πŸ’›

It’s healthy to go away solo or with other moms/friends once in a while. You get much needed me time, and when you come back home you’re a better, saner mama! πŸ’›
Tonight, I’m off to Arizona for @vasculitisfoundation board meetings, TV segments + two days of pure r&r @sanctuaryaz_ πŸ™Œ

Have you ever taken a solid or girls only trip? #MeaningfulMeMoments #skiseason #mommymetime

Happy Monday! A cup of tea is like a morning hug, which I always strive to have in total peace and quiet πŸ™Œ - no small feat when you have two toddlers. Ya, check out today’s Instastories 😜 But, my morning tranquility tea is one of my mom non negotiables, so I try to wake up extra early (pray the kids don’t wake up extra early, too) and sip some serenity before the hustle starts. πŸ’› My favorite tea is @kusmiteaus #princewladimir and the cup is classic @lenoxusa Butterfly πŸ¦‹ Meadow. πŸ’› Let me know in the comments what is your favorite tea. #meaningfulmemoments #morningtea #mommymetime

Jumping back into the fitness first mode is making me very happy. πŸ’‹Honoring my body and making the time (and it Really is hard, you know that, mamas) to take care of it, energizes me to tackle the challenging day ahead. πŸ’‹One thing I don't love about the gym, is how expensive a pair of performance leggings and a tank is costing! 😩$200 for gym clothing? Sorry, not my bag. πŸ’‹Today I'm sporting @jcpenney #xersion collection - pretty, performs well & priced right. 😍 QUESTION: how much do you spend on athletic wear? πŸ’‹ Let me know, and, as always, sending you lots of #momtribe love and reminding you to try and carve out those #MeaningfulMeMoments πŸ’‹β€οΈ#apennyforyourthoughts
