Pamper Mom and Baby
The hardest thing about being a mom is finding time to yourself, forget pampering yourself. In order to do it you find creative ways. Bouncy seats, musical toys, music…you pretty much try everything. I actually at one point bought a special bath seat for my baby so I could just take a shower. Worked really well until she discovered crawling and standing. Toys like the ones below are tried and tested. Just need to sit down and relax for a few minutes? Put up a baby gate and set the kids loose with the code-a-pillar or the dance and move baby. You’d be surprised at how long they will entertain the little one. If your baby is a little older I highly recommend the FurReal baby dragon. Not only is it BEYOND adorable, it teaches them skills. You have to feed it when it cries etc. I asked Santa for one myself. 🙂
If you need a little longer than a few minutes a playard and a few safe toys will do the trick. You can even encourage them to nap with awesome oils from Organic Aromas. Organic Aromas is made up of a group of passionate, experienced healthcare professionals. Their goal is to enrich and improve the lives of people all over the world using a unique form of aromatherapy that combines an exclusively designed nebulizing diffuser with pure, organic essential oils and their specially formulated blends. You know it will be safe for you and the baby.
My new favorite things I use to pamper myself are subscription boxes. I am not usually a surprise kind of person but I love them. It’s like your birthday every month. 2 of my favorite are the Bulu Box and the Beauty Box. The Bulu Box is a well-rounded sampling of all things health and nutrition. I LOVE samples. Each box contains 4-5 premium samples from sports nutrition, sleep, and healthy snacks plus, lifestyle extras like gym gift cards or DVDs bonuses!! Right now the current deal: $5.99 Monthly Bulu Boxes (Regular $10/Month). You can also get the Bulu Weight Loss box which contains 4-5 premium weight loss samples (Yay samples!) like energy aids, healthy snacks, sleep aids, fat-burners and more. This box also could have bonus weight loss items like fitness gear and kitchen tools to give you an edge on your weight loss journey.
Now the BeautyBox is for when you have a bit of time, say an extra long nap for the baby or your significant other has taken the baby shopping, and can really focus on yourself. The BeautyBox delivers 5 deluxe samples and full-sized products right to your door every month. It introduces you to new brands and great products, while sharing tips on the best ways to use them. Being a mom is really hard, you deserve it.
Sometimes you don’t feel great, you haven’t slept well or you are just plain run down. I used to laugh and think my gram was vain when she used to tell me that sometimes a really great shade of lipstick or a fantastic smelling hand cream could make you feel like a million dollars when you feel like two cents. I hate to say it but she was on to something. You just feel better when you make a little effort. It’s just a little pick-me-up for yourself, no one else.
The three products below are the perfect way to give yourself just that little bit you need. The Baja Bronze Eyeshadow & Bronzer Palette is travel-friendly 8-shade bronzer palette to create whatever type of glow you’re going for and it will tuck right in the diaper bag. The Skin Survival Kit supporting Look Good Feel Better is a must. Not only does 100% of the proceeds from this kit will go to the Personal Care Products Council Foundation to benefit Look Good Feel Better, it includes essentials that are gentle, nourishing, and effective. The products leave your skin looking gorgeous and glowing like you just slept for 8 hours. Ha!
Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re too old for glitter. NO ONE is too old for glitter. The Luv2kiss™ 4 Piece Lip Glitter Set sets off sparks with lip glitter in three fiery hues of flirtation—red, gold or fuchsia. The kit includes a tube of lip glitter adhesive for long-wearing glam that will make your significant other sit up and take notice!
If you have a mom and baby in your life that could use a little pampering definitely grab a few of these awesome products. They will thank you and most likely worship the ground you walk on.
