There’s a lot of pressure to be productive during naptime these days, isn’t there? I remember seeing my mom do chores and whatnot while we we played; watching her at a young age taught me how to keep and manage a home. When I was old enough, she made us help. But these days, moms save up all of the “to-do’s” for the short time period during the day when the kids are napping. And on days when the kids don’t nap? Forget it. Day over. That’s so stressful! Well, I’ve teamed up with Trefiel to help you take the stress out of naptime and turn it into your own personal paradise. Let’s all take some time and relax. It will make us better moms.

Call me vain, but ever since I turned 30, I have become increasingly aware of and concerned about physical aging. It’s like one day I looked in the mirror and felt youthful and vibrant and the next day I saw lines and wrinkles forming and found myself actually considering Botox (no, I haven’t had any). I’ve received compliments on my hair and my skin my entire life and, if I’m being honest, am most proud of and happy with those features. To that end, I have a vested interest in taking care of and preserving both. Enter: Arbonne. I recently discovered Arbonne through an amazing independent consultant, Deirdre Sommerkamp, and have been using a number of their products (of my choosing) for just under 30 days now. Intrigued by their non-GMO promise couple with the vast amount of options, I wanted to try a little bit of everything. So, I have been using some hair, bath & body, skincare, makeup, and nutrition products!

Oh, man. I wish I had a dollar for every time I said I was tired. As a working, blogging mom, I can certainly get myself stressed out and wound up pretty often. Sleep isn’t something I get enough of and I always feel like I have something hanging over my head that needs to be done. Relaxation isn’t something I get to do very often. In fact, it often feels like a fantasy. One morning recently, I putting on my makeup before work and couldn’t help but focus on my super dark and deep under-eye circles. I quickly realized that if I feel (and look) this way, lots of other moms just like me must, too. So, I decided to start a blog series highlighting some of my favorite products to help us mamas relax! Just because we don’t have time to get to the spa doesn’t mean that we can’t bring the spa to us, right?!
