Moms- 4 Ways To Treat Yourself Better

I ask myself this a lot…what about ME? Moms are always giving to others, but you need to give back to yourself too. No one is going to take care of you, so here are some ideas/products to treat yourself better!

Drink Your Water

All my life I have heard…did you drink your water? No I’m not too fond of water, yes I get it I need it. But do I like it, NO! I try to drink plain water, but it just isn’t my thing. So since I need to be that example, I need water that has flavor. Being healthier is the number one way on how you can treat yourself better. Plus I can get my veggies and vitamins in too!

Unboxing:

Yep…flavored water but I’m also going to take it a step farther- water that gives me my daily dose of green nutrition plus tastes fantastic. I’m talking about AMAZING GRASS. They have tablets you put in water. By the way, Green Effervescent tablets are PERFECT for the mom on the go. You can get flavors that help with energy, hydrate, detox, and even beauty tablets.

 If you want to go all out and get on the drink water kick with me, then you need the Eff Your Water Kit which is terrific. You will get one branded glass water bottle with sleeve, five effervescent tubes including Lemon Lime, Energy Tropical, Hydrate Strawberry Lemonade, Detox Lemon Charcoal, & Beauty Pink Lemonade, plus fun collateral and one pack of Eff Your Water stickers!

All you have to do is drop an effervescent tablet into your drink, making it the most novel and convenient way to get a daily dose of green nutrition. The tablets are made with the brand’s proprietary alkalizing greens blend, including wheatgrass, barley grass, alfalfa, spirulina, and chlorella, plus more than 30 antioxidant superfoods to help support immunity.

They offer a variety of functions:

  • Detox is great for those that are interested in detoxification, especially after a fun weekend. It includes 7+ cleansing superfoods to support the elimination of toxins. 
  • Beauty can help you reach that glow you’ve been striving for with biotin, collagen, and reviving botanicals. 
  • Energy comes in handy for those that need a boost once the 2 pm slump comes around! One tablet contains 85 mg plant-based caffeine from green tea extract. 
  • Hydrate is comprised of electrolytes. It’s especially convenient for the people (mostly everyone) that forgets to drink half a gallon of water a day, especially with these hot summer days.

I love the fact I can have different flavors and it helps me get my water intake in plus my greens, antioxidants, and vitamins. Mama is getting her healthy on with all these healthy water tablets.

Take Care Of Your Skin

I’m in my 50’s and skincare is a big thing for me! It really doesn’t matter what age you are, taking care of your skin is definitely a way to give back to yourself. Every morning I take time to do a beauty routine that gets me in the mood for the day.

First, make sure the products you use don’t have a bunch of junk in them- you know they make your face greasy and then you break out- stop using those products. You want all-natural products that will have you looking clean, healthy and of course looking amazing.

My favorite brand is SOMA AYURVEDIC because it works!

But also it has all-natural- ingredients that come from the most biodiverse forests. It is plant-based and vegan which enhance and maintain natural collagen levels to keep skin elastic. My face is so smooth after I use SOMA AYURVEDIC! A skincare routine is a great way to treat yourself better.

I’ve been using the vitamin C serum, anti-aging cream, and under-eye gel for a couple of weeks now and OMG my face is looking so healthy. I don’t look like I haven’t slept in months and my face has a glow to it now. Even my husband who barley comments on how I look even noticed how healthy my face looks. Let’s just say I’ve been taking a lot more selfies, lately.

Create An Oasis

My Backyard Oasis

Home is where the heart is right…well it also is where everyone wants Mom to do everything for them so I created an area where I can go relax. I created a Summer Oasis for myself out in the backyard. What a wonderful way to give back to yourself- create your own space. Now it’s nothing like a SHE SHED but it is my space that I enjoy every day. When I need time away from the chaos of life and family I head to the backyard.

I’ve been wanting to do this for years by the way. But guess what never took the time to do it- not this year and I had help from Decocrated.

The Deoccrated Summer Box gave me the inspiration I needed to get my oasis started. Plus it was really fun getting a box full of decor items that are colorful, functional, and perfect for the summer. The summer box has a hostess with the mostess vibe going on and I love it. Colors are amazing and I’m digging the tropical theme- who doesn’t like Flamingos.

The art print can be framed and reused in the home. It also has two sides so you can utilize both prints and change up the decor.

The apron and napkins can be used year-round since they are my favorite colors. Omg…you need to check out Pinterest for fun things to do with a cloth napkin. My husband thinks the apron is for him but no way it is way too pretty for him to wear it while BBQ’ing but I sure will rock it at my many summer parties.

The box art can be displayed inside too. Create a relaxing oasis on your bookcase too. I love to feature it on our wall outside for now. Which also features the wood plaque. The plaque has two sides and this plaque definitely will be hung inside by my desk after summer.

The HELLO hook will be hanging by the front door soon- but for now, it’s outside holding the cute TIC TAC TOE travel game.

My daughter and I play this game almost every night outside. By the way, you can also throw this game in your beach bag for a day trip. Tic Tac Toe is a fun game to play, no matter what age.

The vessel can hold all kinds of items outside and inside- think bills and stationary. Outside it holds the napkins, utensils, and seasonings. I can use this vessel for so many things in the house.

The lantern is my favorite item in the box because I’ve always wanted one. It is outside now and holds candles. When I bring it inside I might use it for a plant that has an ugly vase.

Thank you Decocrated, pronounced (DECO-CRATED), a new quarterly (seasonal) home décor subscription box for my inspiration for creating an outside summer oasis for me to unwind and relax. The box has over $200 worth of items that you can use all year round and is priced under $80. Love this deal.

Eat Cookies!

We all need cookies in our life, right? How about a cookie that is healthy? What the heck is a healthy cookie- well CompletEats is a plant-based grab-and-go cookie that is gluten-free, vegan, 7 grams of protein, full of Omega-3s and fiber. See healthy.

4 Ways Moms Can Treat Themselves!

They have three flavors: Cherry Almond, Mocha Chip, and Chocolate Chia. And each cookie has 6-7 ingredients and all are sourced in California. Since I live in California I knew I had to try these cookies. Healthy cookies are also a cool way to treat yourself better!

Each cookie has 7 grams of protein, full of Omega-3s, and fiber. CompletEats cookies are perfect for before and after your workouts and will keep you full and energized throughout the day.  Now that is a cookie- that is recommended with exercise.

See it’s not all healthy stuff but fun stuff to treat yourself!

MOM’S you need to treat yourself better and I hope you think about some of these products or ideas to create a happier and healthier you!

Keeping Her Memory Alive

Keeping Her Memory Alive - Isabella Grace Bloom Necklace

Beauty Brite Disclosure

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I’m always looking for ways to keep her memory alive. My beautiful mother passed away in 2009. It was very unexpected and left me with an angel now watching over me and my beautiful children.

My mother was my very best friend, I knew I could count on her for anything and that she would support me no matter what. God for sure gained an amazing lady when he chose her as one of his angels. So naturally Mother’s Day is very hard for me, but I’ve found something I think will be a wonderful keepsake not only for me to keep her memory alive but to eventually pass down to my children as well….
