As the founder and CEO of shoe label Bells & Becks, you could say that Tamar Miller starts her day feet-first. The self-proclaimed “footwear aficionado” has loved shoes since she was young, and turned that passion into her career with the luxury Italian-made brand. She’s even known to coordinate her undies with her shoes as her own little outfit secret. (Genius.)

“I definitely believe that I have the best job in the world,” says Miller. “Because as an entrepreneur and businesswoman, I get to make beautiful shoes for fabulous women to bring them joy and make them feel great about themselves. What could be better?” Well, we’re convinced!

Beyond her work, Miller’s personal life is non-stop. “I’m a super busy and dedicated mom to two fantastic teens who keep me on my toes, pun intended,” she says. “Running a household and a business all at the same time isn’t easy, but I try to balance it all with humor and grace, knowing that I’m beyond fortunate and love what I do.”

Given her schedule, Miller is all about the break she gets on the weekends—specifically, those precious Saturdays. Ahead, she shares how she spends them, from spending a little extra time in bed to finding an excuse to dress up, in our latest Day in Brief.

Uwila Warrior: What is your favorite day of the week?
Tamar Miller: Hands down, Saturdays are the best!

UW: How is that day different from the others?
Tamar: Every other day of the week is about taking care of everyone and everything, so Saturday is the day to disrupt my typical routine and take a break from chores. It’s the day when I finally have a little time for myself. It’s the day when I can do my own thing, but it’s also a great day for spending time with my family, catching up with friends, and doing all the fun social things that I put off during the week. And the beauty of Saturday, for me, is that it's the day before Sunday—so there's just so much time ahead for rest and relaxation!

 UW: Describe a typical morning on this day?
Tamar: Saturday mornings have always been my favorite time of the entire week! I always let myself relax in bed in the morning. My husband usually brings me a cup of coffee, I turn on the fireplace in our bedroom, and I linger for a long time, just reading and relaxing. Sometimes I'll even do a little bit of work, but I give myself the gift of doing it in bed, so it still feels like it's rest time.

UW: What about the afternoon?
Tamar: Saturdays are usually reserved for exercise and errands. We have more time to appreciate the fact that we live in beautiful Northern California and enjoy the outdoors. One of the things we love to do is take our puppy to an off-leash national park called Fort Funston. When the weather is clear in San Francisco, the beach there is glorious. It's one of our new favorite hiking spots, and we've started to make it a bit of a ritual.

UW: What does a perfect evening for you on this day look like?
Tamar: My perfect evening is a night out with friends—great conversation, tasty food, and yummy drinks! My husband and I are big foodies. We love exploring new restaurants in and around San Francisco, so we’ll often have plans to check out a new place. Saturday nights are also a great excuse for dressing up. I work from home most of the time, so my daily work "uniform" consists of workout clothes or denim. I love getting dressed up (and showing off my shoes, of course), so going out to fun dinners gives me a great excuse to pull myself together and put on something festive.

UW: What habits or moments during the day give you strength?
Tamar: I love that I don’t have many commitments on Saturdays, so there’s more time for self-care than during the week. If I can do an extra-long yoga class, go for a run, or maybe take a harder Peloton class than I would have time for during the week, that’s the kind of thing that sets my day off well and gives me strength.

UW: How do you power down at night?
Tamar: Snuggling with my husband on the couch and watching a movie is a great way for me to quiet my mind at night. I also always read before bed. For me, it’s the absolute best way to wind down.
