My Kindle Paper White: How did we survive without this? Amazing when jet lagged and I can read a little with the tiny glow from the screen. This invention has totally reintroduced me to reading after losing the habit with kids!

Mio The Activist Firming Active Body Oil: I always have a travel size of this incredible all purpose oil. Trebles up as a facial oil and an overnight hair treatment.  Packed with vitamins, Omegas and antioxidants, it is based on our infamous Mama Mio the Tummy Rub that we created for my first son (Charlie, now 6’5”!) so the experience is even more special as the essential oil fragrance takes me back to such a special time (with FREE rose coloured spectacles thrown in!).

Training Gear: I love any kind of fitness, and travel often introduces me to new things – like aerial yoga in New York recently! So I always have a tiny bundle of tanks and pants that take up no space, but remind me to find a class somewhere; wherever I am.

Mama Mio Lucky Legs: When I was pregnant, my legs swelled up and were really uncomfortable, especially during warmer weather.  We created Lucky Legs cooling serum for exactly this issue and I still use it today. Brilliant on planes to keep circulation flowing in lower legs and feet; perfect to help recover post a high heel event and just spot on to give instant refreshment and relief using on pulse points and temples to stop tension headaches and jet lag.

My Gold Top: Made of some strange leatherette fabric, this instantly adds a pop to any outfit!

Get a Gorgeous Glow with Mama Mio

I have crazy combination skin that has been sensitive for years, including while I was pregnant. I continue to steer clear from products that are too harsh so I was excited to try Mama Mio’s Gorgeous Glow System (YES- it’s awesome to work for a company where I have some of the safest beauty products at my fingertips!) As it turns out, I’m a total fan.ASDFGHere’s the deal: It’s a three step system consisting of a wash, moisturizer and eye cream that are safe for pregnant and nursing mothers, or ANY mom like me who wants softening and effective skincare, but without harsh chemicals!

I’ve been using the wash in the morning and again at night, followed by the brightening day and night cream. I love that the wash leaves my skin soft, but also does a great job at removing my makeup. The cream has a fabulous natural spa-like scent and is super lightweight; I consider this a bonus, since I never want a greasy finish. I follow up my night time routine with the eye cream to combat morning puffiness. Have you tried this new system yet? I would love to hear your thoughts on it and any of your skincare musts! –Olivia
