Hot weather is here! Humidity has arrived! At least here in North Carolina it has.  So that means some of my favourite hot weather skin products are now on a steady rotation in my routine again.  From oils that smooth skin to a faux tan to smoother hair… I’ve got it covered.

Listen, your body is always Summer ready. You don’t NEED to change it.  I’m really not about the whole “get bikini ready”

Let/s talk about how to care for yourself as a mom. Being a mom means spending the majority of your time taking care of other people. It’s both fulfilling and exhausting.  We give a LOT of ourselves, every single day.  That’s why self care is so important.  That’s why we MUST do things for OURSELVES as well.  I’m not talking about a once a year massage or the odd pedicure either.  We have to do things for ourselves every day!

What is it?

Basically it’s a facial roller made using stones, usually jade although you can get other stones like rose quartz. Generally, jade rollers have two ends: one containing a larger sized stone (intended for the forehead, cheeks, jawline, and neck) and one containing a smaller stone (for the under eyes.). They are used to massage the skin and date back to 17th century China. They may be on trend right now but they aren’t a new invention!

I got Beckett my favourite karate jeans from Old Navy plus some socks for his stocking (and this denim jacket for Finnley because come on!), treated myself to a Fawn Design diaper bag, got a preschool curriculum for Beckett and some Christmas gifts!

Let’s talk about skin because, you guys, I feel like we moved to NC and suddenly it was Spring! Some days it even feels like Summer! Aaand I quickly realized my skin wasn’t feeling totally ready to be on display! haha My feet and legs can get a little neglected during Winter, you know?

I quickly got into a routine of exfoliating and moisturizing! It makes all the difference. It also helps your tanning lotion go on smoother (I use this one)!

Placenta

Okay, I know, some people are totally grossed out by the thought of keeping and consuming your placenta…  but I really do feel like it helps with recovery! With my first baby I had it encapsulated but with my second I consumed it raw in a smoothie where I couldn’t taste it at all! In fact, I found the encapsulated pills had a stronger taste.  I definitely “bounced back” energy-wise a lot faster after my second baby;

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration no longer recommends Tylenol for children younger than 4. and are  investigating whether these drugs are safe for older kids.  So if you weren’t open to holistic options before, maybe now is the time!

No one likes being sick and I think it feels even worse to see our kids sick! Prevention is important but even the healthiest people can’t always avoid getting sick so I think you need to have a game plan for both!

By “new moms”, I mean mom’s with a new baby! Doesn’t matter if it’s your first or sixth, having a new baby is amazing but CHALLENGING!  I think we can all agree we can use the extra help during that time, right?  Since the holidays are quickly approaching, I thought I’d round up some great gift ideas whether it’s for Christmas or a baby shower or a sip n see (what I plan on doing this time!) or a “holy crap you just had a baby let me get you something”
