Starting my day with L’Occitane

Typical Workday routine

L'Occitane hand cream


One of the biggest challenges I find working from home each week is staying focused and ‘on task’. This can be difficult when there are all kinds of distractions near by (Hello, super comfy bed and kitchen full of yummy snack food, I’m talking to you). So, I often find myself heading straight to coffee shops as soon as I drop off the kids at school each morning. Something about being out of the house and around other creatives working from the coffee shop instantly gives me that burst of focus that I need!  You can go through for more information.

As soon as I get there, I order my coffee and set up my laptop. Another little ritual that I routinely do as I’m logging in to my computer is grab my hand lotion from my bag. I’m a bit of a nut about over hand washing so I’m constantly applying lotion wherever I go and the coffee shop is no different.

A beautiful collaboration for the season…

One of my very favorite hand creams that I always carry with me is the super emollient and amazing smelling Shea Butter Apricot from L’Occitane. Because my hands tend to be on the drier side, I love how rich and and moisturizing this formula is.

Something else I’m a fan of? Their newest collaboration with Anna Bond, co-founder of Rifle Paper Co. this fall! It’s the best of the L’Occitane brand combined with the beautiful visuals that Rifle Paper Co. has become known for!

Anna Bond has exclusively curated this limited edition collection that includes the number one best selling Shea Butter Collection and given it a new look for the fall season. I think these make such great hostess gifts for the entertaining season ahead. Stocking up a few for stocking stuffers is also an idea I’ll be keeping in mind as I begin thinking about Christmas gifts for friends and family.

Also, as an added bonus and while supplies last, you can grab the Limited Edition Shea Butter Amour Gift set free with any online purchase of L’Occitane using code RIFLEPAPER17! Such a pretty little set that includes the ultra rich body cream and hand cream.
