Skype Calls with Topaz Page-Green

We get under the covers (and quickly out of them) with T P-G this morning!

The Lunchbox Fund, founded by Topaz Page-Green, is awesome. Established in 2005, the fund provides daily meals for orphaned and vulnerable school children in township and rural South Africa. We all know that food equals concentration (and everything), so these meals are not only keeping the kids happy but in school. We’re all about his foundation, check it out. We’re ALSO all about T P-G: her morning ritual is easy and breezy, just the way we like  it. #KISS

6:00 a.m. I wake without an alarm and am out of bed like a shot!

6:01 a.m. I spring into the kitchen and make an espresso.

6:11 a.m. First, I light a candle, this morning it’s Cire Trvdon in Solis Rex—it is unreal heaven to the nose. I then splash my face and put on a layer of Perricone cold plasma and acyl-glutathione eye gel, some Weleda Sage deodorant, and brush my teeth with Weleda sea salt toothpaste. Some mornings, I’ll do a more extensive ritual with Environ products: I cleanse with the Clarisonic, tone with Environ revitalizing toner and clarifying lotion, then mix their C-Quence 4, hydrating serum, C-Boost and SPF, and I’m good to go.

6:35 a.m. I’m running a little late for yoga this morning so I’ll have to give it a miss *gulp*! Instead, I’ll jump straight into my e-mail to prep for meetings today.

7:10 a.m. By now I need another coffee so I’ll jump out and grab a soy cappuccino and almond croissant at Third Rail Coffee down the block. I’ll also pick up a few Juice Press juices to last through the day—always including the Spicy Citrus and Mother Earth juices and the brazil nuts in the mix.

7:33 a.m. I walk back home and get started! This morning I have an hour to wrap 200 personalized thank you gifts to every person involved in making our October 9th Lunchbox Fund Fall Fête and Feedie Launch a success.

8:15 a.m. Once complete, I get online and Skype with LBF Managing Director, Sue Wildish in South Africa.

8:35 a.m. I wrap up the call as my team arrives and we get cracking on the day!
