Oversized shirt with buttons
“When it comes to my style, it’s important for me to be comfortable. I gravitate towards more timeless and classic silhouettes over trendy pieces. I’ve been wearing a lot of big button up shirts lately. The Frankie Shop and the Toteme are benchmarks.”
“I pair my shirts with pants or jeans. As a busy mom of three, I live in jeans and t-shirts. My favorite denim is Levi’s; I like the 501 style. For pants, I love Dish (it’s classic and affordable), as well as Joseph, Wardrobe NYC, and Marni. I tend to buy high-quality, high-quality staples that I can wear again season after season.”
“My current bag is the sling style from Cuyana. It’s simple and classic, and I love that it’s made from 100% recycled plastic certified by global landfill.”
“I love Sana Jardin Paris Vanilla Nomad. It’s a beautiful fragrance that feels feminine and supportive. It’s earthy but sweet and soft at the same time.”

Basic elements for skin care
“For me, clean skin is the foundation, so I start my daily routine with a gentle cleansing gel with chamomile and calendula extracts to soothe and refresh without over-drying. Then I apply our Radiant Serum from vitamin C to give my skin a lit-from-within glow and I follow up with our Hydrogel Cream This amazing moisturizer contains two sizes of Hyaluronic Acid to help lock in moisture in the different layers of the skin .If my skin needs a little extra love, our Beauty Calm + Heal Melting Balm is my secret weapon for staying hydrated even in the coldest weather, as it contains allantoin to soothe chapped skin and our signature Calming Phyto-Blend to soothe sensitivity and support the skin’s healthy barrier.”

“Lately I really like writing the diary; it provides an outlet to look inward, and putting pen to paper to capture my thoughts has been very helpful. I like the Ariana Ost Intention Journal. This father-daughter duo makes the most beautiful pieces centered around crystal healing. In addition to journaling, I use the Aura Balancing Small Flower of Life Healing Crystal Grid to activate my intentions and generate positivity; it also serves as a beautiful home decoration.
“I always use our Fresh Flex Concealer as a base. It’s medium coverage and buildable, so I can control how much I want. I like to contour with one that’s a couple of shades darker than my true skin tone .The formula is extremely flexible and blends perfectly with my skin, and like almost all of our makeup, it has skin benefits like vitamins B3 and E, hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin, and shea butter for skin health and well-being To accentuate my eyes, I use our Extreme Volume Mascara + Bold Lash Primer This game-changing primer has three sizes of fibers and the blue pigment provides instant drama to give -me a fake look. I keep my lips soft and hydrated with our Gloss-C Lip Gloss in Moonstone. It’s a gloss and lip treatment in one and packed with vitamin C. I also always wear a tinted lip balm with me I’m loving the berry shade right now es, Plum Drop. One swipe gives me the perfect wash of nourishing color.
