Welcome To Mia Tempo!
Thanks for stopping by our Me Time blog – I’m so excited to be launching a company that has long been a dream of mine!
Truth be told, I’ve had the idea for Mia Tempo for a while – but there was always something that was more urgent, more important or more demanding of my attention (like, say, my family, three children, school, a career, volunteering, a dog, two cats – we’ve all been there…)
But some ideas just don’t seem to die – they wake you up in the middle of the night or they pop into your head during odd times like when you’re working out or shopping. They nag, cajole, and basically jump up and down screaming ‘pick me, pick me’ until you finally cave and do something crazy – like start a new business.
So where did this crazy idea come from? Mia Tempo was born during a hunt for sunscreen while on vacation with my family. After buying a name brand sunscreen for my daughter, she had an adverse reaction that to this day she refers to as her ‘spotty skin.’ Not wanting to repeat that little charming episode (hearing “MOM! My bumps STILL won’t go away!” for a week straight), I began educating myself about the effects of skin care product ingredients and became a convert to the benefits of all-natural and organic skin care products. It’s a little scary when you find out all what you’re really putting on your skin – try reading ingredient labels on many skin care products – now that’ll keep you up at night!
Worse than the spotty skin episode, when I returned from vacation I felt exhausted and was thrown right back into the craziness that is my life. We’ve all been there – needing a vacation after a vacation! It occurred to me that during the entire holiday I never really took any time for myself to relax and press the reset button. Talking to my friends I found that many were feeling the same way – overwhelmed by all the hats we wear in our lives: work colleague, boss, assistant, house cleaner, laundress, chauffeur for the kids, chef, short order cook, homework helper, referee, psychologist – you name it, women are expected to do it all!
So I decided to make it a point to carve out some time for myself on a regular basis – I call it ‘Me Time.’ It was difficult at first – and I felt a sense of guilt for taking time to relax and recharge. But I soon came to realize that even taking an hour to myself once a week or so made me a better person all around – a better mom, a better wife, a better friend and a better me! A happy me!
I was calmer, relaxed and not as crazed or frustrated. On my last physical my doctor even noted by excellent blood pressure! Gotta love what ‘Me Time’ can do for your health!
And so – voila! – Mia Tempo was born through a need better educate myself with products and a need to de-stress and renew. I decided to try to empower and inspire women everywhere to be their best by helping them to experience and enjoy a little ‘Me-Time.’
Every month, we put together care packages with everything you need for an at-home skin care and beauty experience. I am fortunate to work with a talented team of women to carefully screen and select fun, innovative products made by trendy, socially-conscious companies.
With our blog, we hope to provide a forum to empower and inspire women everywhere to feel their best and hopefully share their own ‘me time’ experiences (you can share on our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/MiaTempoMeTime). We’re big believers in collective wisdom and hope that by sharing our stories, experiences, and knowledge we can all find ways to be well and feel better.
So thanks for joining us on this adventure and here’s hoping you’ll join us to enjoy some ‘me time’ soon!
