AH-mazing! And ha yes, just a million times better! So glad the SI Swim Team created this community so we can engage with inspiring women all over, especially the SI Swim Team and models themselves!!
BALANCE – to me self-care is all about balance, the 80/20 rule. Hydration (simple yet so effective!), healthy diet (don't overthink it - eat the dang ice cream!), regular workout routine even if it means just moving your body some days, a simple yet effective morning & night-time skin-care routine, and getting those zzz’s so the body can recharge! Tomorrow's a new day :)
Christie Brinkley is my beauty inspiration – she’s not only absolutely stunning, but she’s a BOSS lady entrepreneur who does it all. I can only hope I age as well as her :)
DRIVEN – “The bigger the challenge. The bigger the opportunity to grow”.
Baseball hat (sometimes baseball hat(s) plural!) It’s always been a staple in my daily wardrobe whether I’m doing errands, working out, or even a night out!
It might not be strange but it’s definitely not for everyone – a jump in the ocean! Yes, even the cold Atlantic Ocean up here along the Massachusetts Beaches. I SWEAR by the ocean – it soothes and cleanses me inside & out especially your skin & hair! As they say…the cure for anything is salt water (sweat, tears or THE SEA).
My morning ritual - wake up (some days easier than others), take my dog out for his morning routine ;), drink a warm cup of lemon water and/or a green juice BEFORE I have my long-awaited cup of coffee. Then if possible, I like to get my workout in before I start my day, as it really helps to kick start my day and set positive intentions. Followed by a super-food smoothie or bowl of oatmeal & shower/morning skin care routine (which always includes SPF!) My night time routine is a bit more relaxed –tidy up the house then shower (nothing better than getting into bed squeaky clean), brush my teeth, wash my face followed by a night time skin care routine (trying to stay 20/ I mean 30 years old forever). At last, curl up in my bathrobe and/or a million blankets (I could live in bathrobes which is probably why I own so many), turn on the essential oil diffuser & humidifier and if I don’t fall asleep too quick, watch some late night TV!
Look forward to learning more about everyone else!
