Argan oil is one of the latest popular ingredients in numerous cosmetic, skin, and hair care products, and for good reason! It’s rich in vitamin E, fatty acids, antioxidants, and carotene among many other good for you components.
The first time I heard about argan oil as a cosmetic and skin care ingredient was when I learned about Josie Maran Cosmetics. I recognized her name from her days as a model, and was drawn to her products not only for their quality and benefits, but also because of her company's policy of giving back globally and its motto of "Luxury with a Conscience."
I also respected the fact that Josie was not only a beautiful woman that branched out from her modeling career to starting her own business, she is also a mommy. And now her daughter, Rumi Joon (LOVE that name), is going to be a big sister!

Well, congratulations are in order, as Josie Maran is now pregnant with baby number 2! It will be interesting to see how she will balance the demands of her burgeoning brand with the joys of a growing family. Here is a special note from Josie:
“Motherhood has been a truly inspiring experience. As you might know, during my first pregnancy, I became even more aware of what I was putting inside my body and on my skin, and that motivated me to create my all-natural cosmetics line. I’ve learned a lot about myself by watching Rumi Joon grow up. Just seeing her smile makes me realize that being happy is the ultimate beauty secret, and I can’t wait to welcome this new addition to my family. I’ve already gotten back into pre-natal yoga, and I’m just bracing myself for the weird food cravings to kick in. As all you moms and moms-to-be know, this is an amazing time in a woman’s life, and I’m looking forward to sharing this experience with you.”
I can so relate to those sentiments!
Motherhood is such an ever evolving responsibility; it seems that as soon as you become accustomed to one stage, life is swiftly propelling you in to the next stage. Dealing with pregnancy is different from adjusting to life with a newborn, having a newborn is totally different from dealing with a toddler, and let's not even talk about the tween and teen years! When you take on the additional tasks that accompany having multiple children-the responsibility can (at times) appear crushing!
How do you handle the balancing act of motherhood and family life, with having a satisfying social life, AND a successful professional life? Do you have any tips for making it all work? And how do you do it all AND maintain your sense of self and style? Inquiring minds want to know!
Until next time…
