Participating in the Earned In Winter Challenge and want to be featured on the blog? Lauren will be taking "before" measurements and pictures tomorrow from 1:30-3PM at Lithe Rittenhouse!
Confused about taking your measurements? Follow the image above and have a friend help to ensure accuracy.
To Do: Measure the fullest part of the bust, your natural waist (not where you wear you jeans), the high hip (where you wear your jeans; just palpate the hip bone/iliac crest to find the correct spot), low hip/butt (the widest part of the booty), your dominant thigh (approximately halfway between the knee and the hip) and your most dominant arm (approximately halfway between the shoulder and elbow).
Tips: Wear the same outfit whenever you measure, stand posture perfect, and relax the extremities.

A. RBG Cosmetics blush polish is the best, most perfect nude. B. I'm in love with (and have been living in) Madewell's sweet cropped Je t'aime sweatshirt C. Free People Movement Chasse Bra and Buddhi Short are feminine, supportive, fresh, and perfect together in-studio. D. Maple Water is a nice alternative to coconut water and contains only half the sugar! E. Mizon Returning Starfish eye cream is by far the best I've ever used.

As a working mom, I try to spend as much of my free time as possible with Mars. That means I don’t have as much time for personal maintenance as I used to, even though I need it more than ever now! I am lucky that Mars still occasionally naps during the day on the weekends, so I try to make the most of that time for me time. Give this facial a try this weekend, post-holiday.
Ingredients: This is super-easy! Just mix approx 1 tablespoon pure (preferably raw) honey and 1 tablespoon cold-pressed, unrefined coconut oil.
Do: Draw a warm bath, and apply the mixture to your face. Honey is antiseptic and fights the breakouts you sometimes get when you're tired. Coconut oil is so hydrating (I also use it on Mars's skin). Leave it on for 10-15 minutes, and then rinse it off. It leaves my face smooth and glowing.
