I was so excited when Milano cookies approached me about working together. First of all, I have been eating Milano cookies since I was a little girl. They were always our favorite snack as kids and I still buy them as an adult. Second, their new campaign, Save Something For Yourself is all about “me time,” which is something I feel strongly about. The average woman only gets 17 minutes of “me time”, and that is just not enough!!! Milano is encouraging women to find ways to take a moment for themselves throughout their day.
As an “extroverted introvert”/ambivert, I am verrrry careful to make sure I always get enough me time, as living in New York can really take everything out of you otherwise. I have a busy, full life here and I wouldn’t trade it for anything but at the end of the day, nothing is better than a book, a face mask, and… of course… a little chocolate! If you follow my instagram stories, you may remember that few weeks ago, Milano hosted an event at The Norwood in the city to celebrate their (hysterical!) new ad campaign. Each room of the club featured highlighted a different way to get more me time. My favorite was the very last one, “Home is Where the Soft Pants Are,” which was all about unwinding at home.
Inspired by that, Carter and I filmed this fun little video which shows my favorite way to unwind – I really love how it turned out… hope you enjoy it!
How do you take a little time for yourself!? I’d love for you to share your favorite “me” time stories in the comments.
