5:15 a.m.

Wake up, grab my coffee and a bottle of water, then head to a military-style fitness boot camp near my house. It's taught by real Citadel marines who yell the entire time. Intense, but very effective!

7 a.m.

Head home -- hopefully my husband has gotten the kids ready for the day, so I can hop in the shower.

7:15 a.m.

Slather on lots of Strivectin Tightening Body Cream ($59; strivectin.com). I've noticed that it really has firmed up the skin on my arms and tush.

7:18 a.m.

Apply Tizo3 tinted sunscreen ($40; tizofusion.com) -- usually while holding a toddler -- then Gabriel Cosmetics mascara and eyeliner ($12–$16; Whole Foods Market). I finish with a Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm ($5; burtsbees.com) and a little bit of Kuumba Made Persian Garden fragrance oil ($10; Whole Foods Market) on my wrists. I find that many fragrances change when they hit your skin, but this scent stays true.

7:48 a.m.

I like to blow my hair out straight even though the South Carolina humidity is my enemy. Oribe Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray ($68; oribe.com) cuts right through the frizz.

8 a.m.

My husband usually ducks out for a run, so I try to keep the twins entertained with a cartoon while I get dressed. Our summer collection at Troubadour is based on easy dresses, wearable fabrics, and botanical prints. For a day in the office, I pair the Sedgewick Dress ($285, shoptroubadour.com) with slip-on Vans ($60, vans.com) and no-fuss jewelry.

8:30 a.m.

Drop the twins at day care and head into the office.
