Botkier At Home

Botkier At Home

Get to know the Botkier team as we share our top picks for staying occupied while we’re all stuck indoors. Because no one wants to be bored in the house or in the house bored. Or hear that song…ever again.

Books I’ve been reading:

The Happiness Advantage has been a really uplifting & inspiring read – it’s all about how a positive mindset can improve success in work & life. I also just finished Open Book, by Jessica Simpson. It’s seriously juicy and I’ll never look at John Mayer the same way again. 

Podcasts I’ve been listening to

I’m obsessed with Catt Sadler’s podcast, Naked. She has the best bad-ass female guests that are truly inspiring. A few of my favorites so far: actress Jennifer Lawrence, acupuncturist Andrea Thorpe, stylist Karla Welch, and influencer Jacey Duprie. 

TV Shows I’ve been watching

Ozark, Schitt’s Creek, and re-watching Grey’s Anatomy – the first 3 seasons are iconic. Tiger King was also a pretty wild ride.  

Recipes I’ve been trying

Basically anything from Bon Appetit or Half Baked Harvest. I recently made Half Baked Harvest’s 20-min honey, garlic, butter shrimp over jasmine rice and it was INSANE.   

Beauty Items I’ve been using

Right now, I’m loving Coco Kind’s facial cleansing oil & vitamin C serum. Then I swap between Summer Friday’s jetlag mask and Augustinus Bader’s rich cream as moisturizers. They make me look a little less sleep deprived with a 1 year old. I’m also newly obsessed with Necessaire’s body lotion.

Books I’ve been reading: 

I just started re-reading Elvis Duran’s ‘Where Do I Begin?”. I love that he doesn’t take himself too seriously and isn’t shy about spilling some celebrity gossip! 

Recipes I’ve been trying:  

I love to cook so I’ve used this opportunity to try new recipes! This French Onion Chicken recipe was a big hit with my family last week.  

Workouts I’ve been doing: 

My local spin studio, SpinCity, started a YouTube channel and have been putting out 15-20 minute interval training videos. I love being able to get in a quick workout with the instructors I already know and love. 

TV Shows I’ve been watching: 

After listening to my Botkier colleagues rave about Schitt’s Creek, I finally started the series on Netflix and can’t get enough!

WFH uniform I’ve been wearing: 

Leggings and a cozy sweater. When I do need to go out for groceries or essentials, I pop on my Botkier Harvey sneakers and I’m ready to go!

I used to stop at Starbucks or my local café before work to grab a Chai, so now I make my own at home! I love the Tazo Classic Chai Latter mix that you can order online or find in most grocery stores.  

Brand I’ve been loving

Well, Botkier, obviously but I’m also loving Madewell – I’ve been wearing their leggings a lot these days.  

App’s I’ve been using

Dr Jart Face Masks! I’ve been doing them regularly with my mom.
