myself; my husband, John; and our three canine: In traditional anxious NYC haste, we packed shortly, left shortly, and
drove shortly (however responsibly!). We had grabbed our laptops, some groceries, and little else. Once we arrived and
settled into our indefinitely short-term residence and workplace, I questioned, What the eff did I pack? Solely three
pairs of underwear, for starters. And Crocs. However as issues settled down, I found I had each the necessities and
some nice not-exactly necessities, too. Most necessary, I’d introduced my new Megababe botanical hand sanitizer, which
we launched in January. It’s nice—it smells contemporary and citrusy, and it’s made with 62 p.c plant-based alcohol,
so it’s efficient. Plus, it moisturizes with marula and candy almond oils, and the bottle is cute. Even so, we
by no means may have anticipated the elevated demand for it, however fortunately, we’re again in inventory and maintaining!
