A Day In My Life
For picking out my morning outfit I always want it to be stylish. I launched this blog as a refuge from my day-to-day as a stay-at-home mom and as an outlet for my creative self-expression. It was also a way to find myself outside of being a mother to my wonderful boys Clark and Stone and one of the ways I do that is with my personal style. I’m a little bit classic, bohemian mixed with an edgy appeal (I can’t live without my Nike mid blazer high tops for my day to day). My closet is the perfect balance of high and low labels with a range of Zara, Rag & Bone, Isabel Marant, MSGM, J.Crew, ASOS, and A.L.C. I can get great brands on shopyourway.com and earn CASHBACK in points at the same time. Shop Your Way is an e-commerce and loyalty platform that rewards you for doing what you already do, shop online, take an Uber or use the Shop Your Way Citi Mastercard!
Once the kids are off to school it is coffee time. I grab an Uber which as an exclusive rewards partner of Shop Your Way, so smart for getting all my holiday shopping done and just keeping cool during this busy but fun season. Shop Your Way® is Uber’s exclusive rewards partner, and this holiday season the brands have teamed up to offer riders a $4 cashback in points reward for each ride (through 1/2/2018, and $2 CASHBACK in points after the promotion period.) Nice, right? There are tons of products and brands you can redeem your points for on shopyourway.com. Shop Your Way® makes it easy, rewarding and fun.
If you’re a java junkie like me then Metric Coffee is where you need to be. You aren’t just visiting a full-service coffee bar; you’re getting your morning joe straight from the source. With a refurbished, 1930’s roaster imported from Germany, this café is roasting your beans right under your nose. Plus the Scandinavian-style café has viewing windows so you can watch the process from roaster to packaging. You can also take ‘cupping’ classes there which is the practice of observing the different tastes and aromas of brewed coffee.
Working out is a huge part of my lifestyle and always has been (check out my Instagram and Instastories for proof!), back in the Uber to the East Bank Club and racking up another $4 CASHBACK in points. There’s just something about feeling like you look good, and I get that feeling after working out consistently. I have to mix it up with exercise in order to not get bored which is why I mainly workout with a personal trainer. I’m currently working out at East Bank Club with Zach Glasgow. We tend to stick to 45 minute sessions unless it is a super busy day but I also like to mix in Pilates and boxing rounds to my workout regimen. I love practicing my boxing skills with Terrence at Soho House Chicago.
I love doing fun activities we can all participate in with my boys like the Kool Kids Kupcake Class at the Sugar Hill Bakery. The kids got to customize their own chef hats and then, of course, came the cupcake decorating!
I take my health and wellness very seriously. I try to eat organic food as much as possible for optimal health and I have the same approach for my skin. But you do have to do your research as high quality organic skincare is simply hard to find.
Currently, I am using the True Botanicals Renew regimen. The Renew regimen is an anti-aging regimen that addresses the causes of aging, at the cellular level. I use the full regimen which consist of the Hydrating Cleanser, Nutrient Mist, Pure Radiance Oil, Cellular Repair Serum, and Vitamin C Booster. Plus it smells amazing. I love the dewy glow it gives as I cleanse my face.
There you have it folks. I just gave you a glimpse of what a day in my life is like. A day that wouldn’t run as smooth without Uber and thanks to Shop Your Way, it’s now even smoother.
