My name is Rebecca McKay and I am a City Momma Styles-holic! I love everything about CMS - Allison’s raw posts about balancing a busy entrepreneur life with kids, her tips for simple everyday clean beauty and of course the ease of shopping slow fashion with the click of a single text message! (Hello pretty pink packages!)
The instant I met Allison through our work with the clean beauty brand Beautycounter, I knew we would be friends even though we lived in different provinces. Our lives are so different, yet we have so much in common: Three kids (I have 3 crazy boys) who keep us running, husbands who work far too many hours away from home, being professionals with Masters Degrees dreaming bigger everyday, and most importantly being moms who build each other up and remind you it’s ok to do something for yourself. This is what the CMS community is all about! Connection & encouragement. It’s awesome.
Enter the ‘robe intervention’. I have this old (but oh so comfy) purple bath robe that was a Christmas gift from my mom about 5 years ago. It’s not flattering and my husband HATES it! After seeing many posts from Allison about this PRIV Floral Robe and what seemed like the entire CMS tribe chiming in that they had purchased it and loved it - I finally caved and ordered one. The day it arrived, I thought my husband would roll his eyes that I had ordered something unnecessary online. Well! Was I surprised! HE LOVED IT and told me to throw the purple robe out (Disclaimer: I did keep it for those really cold winter mornings and so my mom doesn’t feel offended lol). PS: The floral robe was so comfy and I felt so pretty in it even in my sleep deprived state, I knew I had to have the matching Secret Garden Sleeveless Floral Romper... and maybe the Secret Garden Floral Jumpsuit by Priv! The CMS community reminded me that I deserved it and that made me smile.
