At Moms Night Out this month we celebrated Christmas in July and it was AHHHHmazing. After a wildly popular December event last year, we decided why wait to treat ourselves until December again? We all brought two identical gifts costing $10-12 each (total we spent was $20-24). The requirements for these two items were something that you would use on yourself as a woman/mom. Something you use that makes you feel great, beautiful, happy, caffeinated, sane, well-rested, pampered, etc. The party was all about MOM!! Not allowed were items that are helpful for mom to use on her kids :)
And since it takes a village, we thought we would compile a list of all of our Favorite Things to help out our fellow mamas out there. Without further ado, here are our Favorite Things- July 2019 Edition.
Shampoo Bar from Lush Cosmetics from Robyn
Why we love it: It comes in this cute little tin and is great for travel because you don’t have to worry about 3 oz rule and it’s good for the environment with no plastic.
Why we love it- so you can look good, smell good and take FIT4MOM classes that make you feel good. I mean….#accurate
10 headband multipack- From Sara
Why we love it- You can cover up roots if they are oily from lack of shower, or it’s been awhile since you have been to the salon #momlife
Sisters and I leather earrings- From Jackie
Why we love it- When mom life gets crazy and you forget to do laundry so you are wearing the same outfit...again... a fun pair of earrings can change you up in seconds. I can be wearing my workout clothes per usual, but if I throw on a fun pair of earrings, my kids ask me why I’m so dressed up, am I going out?
Why we love it: According to my dentist, it has xylitol so is great for after lunch when you can’t brush your teeth. In my life with dishes I need a sponge but regular ones are gross, this silicone one is awesome. And finally since doing Body Back I love meal planning! Each week I plan out my meals and grocery list on this cute pad and post it on my fridge so we stay on track.
Sip by Swell insulated waterbottle- From Nicole
Why we love it: It’s perfect for iced coffee on these summer days! I pack it up and head out to Stroller Strides.
Victoria Secret Body Spray and Body Lotion in Bare Vanilla in Bloom- From Rita
Why we love it- Vanilla is a yummy scent that makes me feel pampered.
Dear Mom Rose cans, Dove Chocolate and a face mask- From Jess O
Why we love it- “It’s a mood thing” was the theme of this gift. The Dear Mom mini rose cans are one glass (and how do I not buy it with that name?!). I loved the size of this can because I'm nursing. Some of the other cans out there are two glasses or more which can be too much.
Justins dark chocolate peanut butter cup and Starbucks Gift Card- From Cassandra
Why we love it- Ummm, dark chocolate, peanut butter and coffee...what else is there to say?
We hope this list gives you some ideas to treat your friend who just had a baby, surprise your bestie just for fun, or treat YOURSELF. Treating yourself and making the others in your life smile doesn’t have to cost a lot of money or time.
We do our Moms Nights Out once a month and they are open to anyone and everyone in the Madison area- follow along on our Facebook page or join our email list to stay in the loop! I promise, we are super fun to hang with. #girlgang #momsquad #findyourpeople
