My Secrets To Self-Care

“Self care” is a buzzword that people toss around a lot these days—and for good reason. While it’s never easy to find “me” time, everything feels different when I do. I am happier, I’m more focused, I’m a better mom, a better friend and I’m a better wife. To me, “self-care” equals self-worth. Investing in ourselves builds self-esteem and confidence—and it doesn’t have to be as time-consuming as we think.

Love, Gen: I See the Beauty in You

Whether I know it or not, I’m always struggling with my definition of beauty— from aging, to perfectionism, to fat-shaming myself, to holding my cards close to my chest about getting my period every month to how often I indulge in “beauty” maintenance. In thinking about how I’d tackle this month’s theme, I realized that beauty doesn’t need to be a source of conflict. It doesn’t need to be our

My At-Home Spa Day

When you’re a mom, it’s often hard to find peace, and with 3 kids, the juggle and hustle required can make me ache for quiet time. There are days when I do get lucky. Now that Tom is in elementary school and Shep is in preschool, me-time has become more of a possibility. When it’s just Odette and me, I can sometimes sneak off during her naptime for a short,

Easy Sheet Masks for Mama “Me Time”

Life is pretty hectic lately.  Our family has been on the road and in an out of airplanes, which for me means sad, dry, tired skin. As I’ve said before, I look for products that are naturally based.

The Skincare Must-Have for Your Christmas List

Skincare is important to me. Clean skin is non-negotiable, but so is time management. With three kids under six, I don’t have an hour to spend in front of the mirror applying creams and serums when I’m yelling at my tribe to brush their teeth. I use a good face cleanser and moisturizer, but, let’s face it, sometimes “clean skin” means grabbing a makeup wipe and crashing right into bed.

#NaturallyInspired Skincare

When I am in nature, I am at my best. I’m inspired by the trees, the water, the almost-ripe tomato hanging off the vine, the smell of nature makes me happy. I love the beauty of the earth, and I love bringing that beauty into my home. That’s why I adore Tom’s of Maine’s line of natural body wash and beauty bars that leave me feeling in tune with nature.

Acupuncture for Birth and Beyond

Six years ago when I first embarked on my birthing journey, I realized how important it was to surround myself with a good support team. Not only was it important to have a great midwife (or doctor) and a compassionate and helpful partner or spouse, but I quickly discovered that it was also equally important to surround myself with a doula, friends, and anyone else who would encourage me, empower
