The Steele Maiden: A day in the life with Dove Advanced Care

If you’ve been noticing that I’ve been a bit scarcer around here and a bit busier in real life (a concept I would have told you wasn’t even possible in 2016…) than you’d be right. I accepted a promotion to Art Director at my full time job in the beginning of the year, started training for a half marathon last week and have been making sure to still carve out time for Adam, family and friends. In short, my days are LONG. So I was in desperate need of a deodorant that could keep up.

Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant came to the rescue. Boasting NutriumMoisture that provides extra moisturizer and softness and 48-hours worth of odor and wetness protection – you kind of can’t argue with a product that has so many 5-star reviews. The one I agreed with most? “This deodorant protects all day long. Noticed a difference in the softness of my skin in one use.” – Jasmine 0112 . The switch from my old more than lackluster brand seemed simple.

Below – I take you through what my Wednesday looks like, truly putting Dove Advanced Care to the test.

6:45 AM: First alarm goes off, immediately hit snooze.

7:15 AM: Roll out of bed and quickly change into workout clothes and apply Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant . Walk to the gym for cross-training. According to my half marathon training Wednesday means I get a break from running, so it’s arm weights and a cycle ride.

8:35 AM: Back home for a quick shower, pack a lunch and run out the door.

9:00 AM: A brisk 20 minute crosstown walk to the office, picking up a large iced tea along the way. Settle into my desk to check emails and review web orders from the previous day.

11:30 AM: Take a quick break to make a cup of hot tea. I don’t drink coffee at all so tea (and lots of water) is what keeps me going throughout the day.

1:45 PM: Time for lunch. While I try to pack my lunches (healthier and cheaper!) I always step outside for a bit of fresh air. I’ll take a stroll down Fifth Avenue or walk through the Union Square Farmer’s Market.

3:30 PM: Jump on a weekly conference call with marketing strategists. Talk spring campaign ads and influencer outreach.

4:45 PM: Meet with potential partners for an upcoming in studio event. Walk them through our studio and discuss event set-up ideas.

6:30 PM: Dash out of the office and take the subway downtown for a Fohr Card blogging event in Soho. A great chance to chat with other bloggers and pick up a few tips and tricks along the way.

8:45 PM: No matter what else I’ve got on my plate, Wednesdays are always me and Adam’s midweek date night. I freshen up with a quick swap of accessories and touch of extra make-up but shockingly no need for a deodorant reapply. Phew! We switch turns planning these Wednesday dates and tonight is my turn. We meet at Spaghetti Incident – a cute little Italian spot in Nolita.

10:00 PM: Make it back home to our apartment in the East Village. Quickly check a few blog emails before settling on the couch for some Netflix. We’re watching Black Mirror lately but since it’s date night, we’ll watch the far sappier This is Us.

11:30 PM: Tuck into bed for the night. A good night’s sleep and I’ll be back up and ready to go again tomorrow. Thanks for keeping up with me Dove!
