As Moms, we need to treat ourselves once in awhile. We deserve it. We are sustaining human life, and there is no job on earth that can come close to it. The sense of responsibility that we face on a daily basis is humongous, and there are few people that can relate well enough to the experience that you are going enough to appreciate it for what it is. Because they don’t appreciate it – if they’re going through it themselves, they’re having their own tough time.
They’re usually parents too.
With Mother’s Day popping up around the corner, now is the time to lay down the foundations for things that you know that you really need … probably can’t justify, in some cases … but definitely really need.
What’s a mom without a bag to carry around her life in? If you still haven’t upgraded from the nappy bag 4 years later, now is the time to indulge. There are so many great totes and generally big bags that are stylish too, you just have to have a look around and find one that suits your style. Just because you’re a mom doesn’t mean you have to skimp on fashion if that’s what you were previously used to. Just incorporate it into your lifestyle!
To Perk You Up
Sometimes, we just need a good dose of caffeine to get us through. If you’re not quite Lorelai Gilmore in terms of how much and often you like your coffee but are still partial to the odd cup, there are some cool gadgets like the W&E cold brewer which will be able to give your drink just the kick it needs. Especially if you don’t have the time or the availability to drink coffee when it’s hot, why not drink it cold instead? It makes for a much safer option when you’re out and on the go with your little ones.
Give Me Glow
There are some things that no amounts of clean eating and water won’t fix on your face – but that’s where magical makeup steps in. There are some great combination foundations on offer currently that give you a mix of both moisturiser, concealer and the main foundation itself. Who was the genius who thought this up? It shaves quite a chunk off your morning routine (if you have the time for a routine), whilst giving you everything that you need.
There are some things that money can’t buy, and that’s homemade treats off your little ones. With the rise of the Pinterest generation, there are so many ideas and tutorials for them to be able to make something that is fun for them and meaningful for you, so nudge your partner over to take a look. It can be anything from crafts to baked goods or even a handwritten poem. It doesn’t have to be over top; something small can mean the world to your little ones when they hand it over to you. The best gifts come from the heart.
