When was the last time that you got someone other than a child a gift just because? When was the last time you purchased something for yourself just because? This past year has taught us to cherish and appreciate life and those in our lives. It is time to celebrate and WOW the people in our life, just because. Here are a few items that I am enjoying for myself. They make great gifts for the moms in your life that have been holding the families together, for the teachers that have been keeping the learning going, and for anyone in your life that can use a just because gift. Everyone deserves a WOW.
Starlette Galleria – You can buy me a gift from here any day! Before having JustaBXgirl, I wore accessories every day. When she was little, I wouldn’t wear much jewelry because I didn’t want it to get snagged or pulled. Now that she’s getting bigger, bring on the bling! This mom-owned business makes the bling affordable. Everything is made with sterling silver, plated in real rose gold, 14k gold, or white gold. The Believe Spring Collection can take all of my money. I love the simplicity of this Bee Courageous ring. It completely screams, “wear me every day.” Next order though, I need something big and blingy.
Tough As A Mother – Yes! This necklace makes me feel strong. The packaging on the Tough As A Mother products makes moms not just feel tough but also empowered and seen. The clear quartz in this “Balance” necklace is meant to help mamas reduce stress and embrace patience. Those are two reminders I need regularly so this was the perfect match for me. I love that it is classic and goes with everything I wear.
Eco Lips – Even though wearing masks is now normal doesn’t mean that our lips don’t need love. I stopped wearing lipstick and even lip gloss except for the occasional Zoom meeting but the Mongo Kiss lip balms from Eco Lips remain on heavy rotation in my home. You might remember when I included them as a stocking stuffer. This organic lip balm is high in Vitamin E and keeps my lips feeling great.
DIY Kit Creations Nail Polish Making Kit – Most of my energy these days is around homeschool. I am sure that you’ve noticed the shift in my social media. This kit is a perfect bridge that allows me to do something fun for myself while still teaching JustaBXgirl something new. I love that it is perfect for a mommy and me day, a girls’ night in, a homeschool lesson, or a day to myself. Head over to my Instagram to find out how you can win a kit of your own!
Nora’s Naturals Coffee – Let the coffee mama stereotypes commence. The reality is that many people enjoy waking up to a fresh cup. Nora’s Naturals offers a monthly subscription service. Talk about becoming a mama, a teacher, any coffee lover’s favorite person. This is your way in! Did you know that the polyphenols (I didn’t know what these were) and the antioxidants in coffee can help protect the body from oxidative stress and inflammation? Yup, and it can serve as prebiotics for a healthy gut. Next time someone tells you slow down on your coffee intake, you can tell them you’re doing your best to stay healthy LOL
