I mean, I guess the thought of getting fancy jewelry or sexy heels is just no longer appealing. Whenever I do carry or wear something nice, it always comes home covered in snot, vomit or crap. So I am going to be a bit more practical this year. The husband ALWAYS asks (well, the MIL asks and reports back, God love her) so I need to come up with something to tell him. What I reaaally would like is a SHUT THE FUCK up button but I think I might settle for having my hardwood floors professionally cleaned. Seriously. I know...what has happened to me? We all ask that question, right?
It's also about this time of year when I start to think about what to get my friends and family. This year, I have decided to share what I think are the ALL TIME TOP items for MOMS. I swear and live by these things...LOVE LOVE LOVE them. Not sure I could actually live without them. They are all practical and all worth the $$. If any of my buds are reading this, don't surprised if you find a "Magic Cloth" next to your "Christmas Crack" this year. I'm just sharing the love! Feel free to share this link with your SO's so you can get excited about opening some the boxes under your tree!!
The SASH Bag
See that pic <<< OMG, the PERFECT bag for Moms on the Go. I chose this pic specifically because that is EXACTLY what I use my sash for! When I am out and don't want to lug around the enormous diaper bag. I leave it in my car and take my Sash, which fits my keys, wallet and phone. It has a ton of compartments, comes in great colors and was designed by a DDDC Member!! Nichole MacDonald is a genius. I love it. You NEED one.
Balance Oil by DoTerra
Holy Shizzle. I carry this in my car. A few drops rubbed on my temples and behind my neck, and all of a sudden all of the screaming, crying and kicking doesn't make me want to drive off a cliff. I am not sure what the magic ingredient is, but I've been known to mix it with coconut oil and rub all over my body in emergency situations. My other favs are Breathe (for colds) Lavender (for sleep) and OnGaurd (for illness) - ALL THREE I use on my kids almost daily.
CLARISONIC FACE BRUSH
It's like an electric toothbrush for your face. YES, you WILL take the time to use it because your skin feels like a baby butt after you do! I use mine in the shower, and I LOVE it. Best purchase of 2013.
SPARK and CLEAR MOOD
You've heard me talk about it, and I CAN'T BELIEVE you haven't tried it yet!!! $20 for a box that will CHANGE your LIFE! OMG, instant good mood, it's like my Mommy Crack. Spark KICKS ASS. Clear Mood is GREAT for PMS, or when you are in a total funk. No more dehydration from coffee, no sugar and tons of energy. FYI- Be careful if you want to do a Spin Class after drinking, I swear I almost rode off my bike.
Are you tired of your call smelling like a giant fart? This little piece of paper transforms the giant dumpster I drive into a cupcake bakery. If you have not yet tried Scentsy, GET ON THE WAGON. This shit is FOR REAL. The burners are AMAZING. I use pumpkin roll and seriously, want to lick my kitchen walls. Beach, Pumpkin Roll and Apple Press = DELISH. EVERYONE needs a car scent.
HELEN OF TROY HOT AIR BRUSH
Screw the brush AND blower! This little contraption is the bomb. Easy to use, doesn't burn your ends and has a tangle release button. $23, and makes getting ready a snap! It's almost amazing how easy it is for me NOT to have to wear a pony tail every day anymore. I LOVE this thing!!!!!!!!
