Ahhh Mother’s Day! It is one of my favorite days of the year! I love spending time with my family and being spoiled by them but I also make sure to take time out for myself as well. This month’s finds of five favorites offers some inspiration to add a little more indulgence and relaxation into your Mother’s Day!
French Girl Sea Soak | French Girl Organics – Organic / Vegan Sea Soak (10 oz) (Rose / Ylang). Traditionally, I end every Mother’s Day with a hot bath. For me, it is the ultimate pampering indulgence with no appointment required. I have recently discovered French Girl Organics-a line of products that are 80-100 percent organic, vegan and completely plant based. This sea soak is divine! Infused with the delicate scent of rose, it combines four salt varieties to soften the skin, soothe aching muscles and ease the mind!
Eberjey Sleep Set. Who is guilty of wearing an old college t-shirt and ratty shorts to bed? Hand raised high over here! I only seem to wear a nice set of pajamas when I pack them for travel, yet ending or starting the day by feeling good in what you have on sets good intentions in my book. I love the Eberjey line of sleepwear that are designed to flatter real bodies with the softest, feel good fabric. Treat yourself, or be treated to a nice pajama set this Mother’s Day. Plus, don’t you want to look your best on Mother’s Day morning while being served breakfast in bed?
Flowers for Dreams. Flowers and Mother’s Day go hand in hand. I don’t think giving or receiving flowers on this day is at all cliche. Flowers make everyone happy! While I am a big fan of supporting local florists, I recently discovered another flower source based in Chicago (but will be quickly expanding elsewhere!). Flowers for Dreams started out as a side college project but now has expanded into a flower delivery business offering unique sets of organic bouquets with fair and honest prices. It is also based on a model of profit and purpose where each purchase benefits a local charity (25% to be exact!). Added bonus, each delivery is hand-delivered, on bikes, for free!
InnoGear Real Bamboo Essential Oil Diffuser Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Diffusers with 7 LED Colorful Lights and Waterless Auto Shut-Off. Moms are always in need of ways to feel less stressed! I am starting to embrace the idea of incorporating essential oils into my life as a way to help manage stress. So a great way to introduce oils into your own life is filling an oil diffuser with your favorite scent. Doing so can help lift your mood and alleviate stress. Plus, it is safer and cleaner then burning candles while still filling your home with a wonderful aroma!
The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living. Have you heard of Hygee? It is a word being thrown around a lot right now. The word itself intrigued me so when I set to find out what it meant, I was hooked! Hygee is a Danish concept that essentially translates to a state of being cozy or a feeling of contentment. Considering Denmark holds the position of having the happiest people in the world, taking note on how they live to embrace life’s simple pleasures, makes this a must-read. You may find you even want to incorporate a little Hygee into your Mother’s Day!
