A Day in the Life of Kristina Rihanoff

WHEN I WAKE UP…

I am woken by my seven month old daughter Mila (short for Milena) at around 7am each morning. We go downstairs and I give her a bottle of milk before she has a play with her toys. I have a glass of water, some Forever Aloe Vera Gel and a glass of Forever Pomesteen Power before breakfast to set me up for the day ahead. My partner Ben and his daughters get up half an hour later to begin getting ready for school. Mornings in our household revolve around the children and making sure they are all sorted for the day.


DURING THE DAY…

Our house is still relatively new and we are having quite a bit of interior design work done to it; people are constantly coming and going throughout the day which keeps me busy. Mila has two naps a day and Ben and I use this time to work out either together or separately. We love circuit training and Ben is a fantastic trainer so he puts me through my paces at our in-house gym. I also have a passion for hot yoga so I try and go two-to-three times a week. Hot yoga consists of practicing a fusion of yoga styles, including Bikram at an extremely high temperature – over 32 degrees Celsius! I’ve actually been practicing yoga for fifteen years, so it is a real love of mine. I took my first class in America during my twenties and immediately felt the benefits. I used to go to yoga classes four-to-five times a week when I was dancing; I found it so beneficial for both my body and mind!

When Mila is awake we love to attend baby classes together. Our favourites are ‘Sing and Sign’ which teaches babies signing in a fun and interactive way, and ‘Water Babies’ which helps to lay the foundations for learning to swim. Mila adores these classes and it’s so lovely seeing her laughing and clapping away.


A TYPICAL EVENING…

Evenings are always a busy and fun time in our household. The children all play together and we often have Ben’s family members over for dinner. Ben and I try to take turns in cooking dinner but I am more than happy for Ben to take the lead in the kitchen as he is such an amazing cook. Ben can create really delicious meals – pulled pork is one of his signature dishes – and I’m even tempted to make him apply for Masterchef! At 6:30pm we start Mila’s bedtime routine and the older girls settle down to do their homework; they are usually in bed by about 7:30- 8:00pm. Once all the children are in bed, Ben and I love to chill and watch a film or the latest box-set – we find them so addictive! If one of Ben’s family members is available to babysit, we love to go out to the cinema and enjoy some quality time together.


THIS NEVER CHANGES…

Mila’s routine. Now that she is seven months old she is in an established routine; I try to stick to it as closely as possible.

Working out is also something that I make time to do even if I’m working away in London or I’ve had a really busy day at home. I find that exercising helps me to feel good and so I have to make it a priority.


MY MOST MEMORABLE FOREVER MOMENT…

The promotional video I did for Forever in the dance studio. This was an incredibly poignant marker for me in the sense that it symbolised the start of my relationship with the company and it is a partnership I’m incredibly proud of. I have a genuine love for the products, so to be a part of the business in this way is a real blessing to me.
