Mother’s Day is a time of the year where we get to honor all the women in our lives who we love and who we cherish. I am so blessed to have my mother still in my life and so close to my children. I’ve written about her a few times this month and decided that for this post, I would shed light on someone else in my life — someone who continues to inspire me on a daily basis. Someone who continues to push me to be a better person day in and day out –> My business partner and best friend, Audrey McClelland.

So, what is it about Audrey that makes her so inspirational? Dove has released a new limited edition Beauty Bar with beautifully engraved words that allow us to celebrate the women in our lives. As a partner with Dove, they asked me to create a list and pass it along to my dear friend. We never really do tell one another how we feel, do we?

She’s a hard working woman who knows how to get the job done.

And as a mother of 5, she knows how to surround her children with love and joy.

Audrey is the sister that I never had – the safe place for me to fall. My secret keeper. My advice giver. The best friend a girl can ever dream of.


She’s not afraid to show it how it really is. Not always a rose colored lens.



And when you want a good time — this girl can promise one.


Despite her busy schedule, Audrey is at every practice and every game for her sons’ favorite sport.

That goes for herself too – that girl works out a few times a week and she’s busier than most people I know.

All in all – Audrey McClellan is a wonderful mother, an amazing friend and a fierce hustler. And she does it all in STYLE.

    I would honor my mom for sure! She knows me sometimes better than I know myself. We talk a few times a week and try to see each other (along with my dad) a few times a year because we live so far away from each other.

  2. I think it’s great when we can find peers who inspire us. It’s a unique thing to be inspired without feeling like a subordinate or an apprentice.

    How cool! I love how so many companies are doing things like this with their products. It’s a neat little reminder every time you hop into the shower.

  4. Audrey sounds like an amazing woman. I love Dove and I’ve been using it for years. These are cool and I want to get them for my mom.

  5. This is awesome. I’m definitely going to look for these. And your bestie is definitely the best because she’s a unicorn. 😉 Thanks for sharing.

    I would honor no one else this Mother’s Day, but my beloved mom. She is a strong woman and she worked hard with my dad to give us all a good life.

  9. I’d like to honor my sister. She’s younger than me by a year and has no child of her own (yet). But she’s been my rock since day one. I love her and she’s the best aunty my kids could ever want.
