1 DSW: STEVE MADDEN GIBBS OVER THE KNEE BOOTS

Want to look bold + flawless, with very little effort? Step into the Gibbs OTK boot from Steve Madden. I’m obsessed as they are designed with an aggressive lugged outsole reminiscent of a combat style. They will hug your curves while keeping all attention on the chunky heel.

3 BOTOX + IV HYDRATION WITH DR. JEFFREY LIN

There is no shame in my Botox game! I’ll try anything to freshen up my face. Being on camera and in pictures almost every day eventually catches up with you, and anything I can do to minimize my prep time (because caking on concealer is no fun), I am there. BELLA brand partner Dr. Jeffrey Lin’s masterful hands help give my skin a youthful glow. More importantly, he introduced me to IV hydration therapy. I had heard the buzz, but I showed up at his practice one day feeling more depleted than ever. He advised me to try IV hydration therapy and I left feeling rested, recovered, and even enjoyed a better night’s sleep. As busy women, this is definitely a treatment I encourage you to incorporate in your wellness + beauty ritual.

5 COOKING

I recently had my kitchen redone. It wasn’t until everything in it was back in place and I made a Dominican meal for my boys that I reconnected with how enjoyable cooking can really be. Many things are still trial and wishful thinking for me, but cooking forces you to slow down. Only in doing can you taste, smell, and really appreciate what you’re creating. It’s nourishment for the body, mind, and soul, and you can always find something fun we’re making in the Chow BELLA section of BellaMag.co.
