This week our FP Merchandiser Iryna shares her quarantine routine — taking self-care to a whole new level.
Three things you are grateful for:
Health, family and friends, spring.
Something you are doing now that never had time to do before?
Baths! I love taking baths more than ever, if that’s even possible. It had always been my Sunday ritual, and now I take them a few times a week. Glass of wine + fun show or a book, while de-puffing with a mask = ❤️. Here’re some of my favorite bath essentials: PureHeals Black Charcoal Eye Patch , Milk + Honey Bath Soak Trio , Cuccio Somatology Yogahhh! Detox Bath.
Workouts! My work day has changed from running around the office, merchandising, meetings, travel, etc., averaging 10k steps a day, to now focusing on projects that require me to sit in front of the computer. I’m trying my best to stay strong and balanced (physically and mentally) with yoga, either on my own or via an online/Zoom class.
Wearing the Happiness Runs crop and Good Karma leggings.
Reading! I’ve been trying to brush up on my Ukrainian with a book on urban legends and myths. Also, my 8 year-old niece Lilly is reading Harry Potter. I’ve decided to join her! Love Harry Potter!
Growing my collection of plants! Current count is 25 with one more on the way from Bloomscape!
Riding a bike! I bought a city cruiser during the 1st week of quarantine, and try to ride with my husband a few times a week.
How has your style changed? What’s been your go-to wardrobe?
I’ve simplified my beauty routine significantly, using only FIVE go-to products and beauty tools.
1. RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek & RMS Beauty Contour Bronze, which I also use as an eyeshadow.
2. RMS Beauty Skin2Skin Blush Brush is great for cheekbones and a simple and quick contouring.
3. RMS Beauty Un Cover-Up – the holy grail for hiding undereye circles!
4. Eyeko Black Magic Mascara – only for those important Zoom meetings or date nights.
Go-to wardrobe: Mostly anything that’s comfortable: joggers, sweatpants, leggings, shorts paired with an easy, comfy tee, with an occasional “dress-up” look that’s still practical and comfortable. I love the hemp collection from Intimately.
Roses Saint Jhn definitely makes me want to dance!
Favorite activity to give your mind a little TLC:
Baking is very precise and, while following a recipe I can almost shut off my mind… it’s like my meditation.
