I’m the first one to admit: As a mother of two I don’t get much free time, but when I do I like to catch up on my favorite magazines!
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of PEOPLE®, InStyle®, and Sunset®. The opinions and text are all mine. Thank you for supporting all What Would V Wear® collaborations!
Weekends are typically very busy for me. We do most of our grocery shopping then and while I was doing my weekly shopping at Jewel-Osco, I decided to pick up the July 7th issue of InStyle while I was checking out. Afterwards I headed to the laundromat to wash all of our blankets and comforters (we officially moved into our new house and I wanted everything tidy and clean). I don’t mind the laundromat at all, in fact, I like it. That’s my time to sit down and read. At home I’m always surrounded by my boys, and my eldest son, Kingston barely gives me a break these days.
As a wife, and working mom of 2 boys I cannot stress enough how important it is to find some ‘me time.’ Most of us know that self-care is essential for happiness. But do we actually take the time to do so? I must admit, I often feel like taking time for ourselves is selfish, but that’s so silly of me to think! We have been taught that we must work hard to deserve health and happiness. I mean I even put a lot of pressure on myself. I want to be the perfect wife, mother and entrepreneur…but let’s face it: Nobody is perfect, and there’s nothing wrong with the idea of rewarding yourself with some ‘me time’ every once in a while, in fact, it’s good for you…even if that means going to the laundromat on your own.
