How To Spoil a Mom

IMG_3813-1-2Here are a few luxuries for any woman who wants to treat herself.  

Soon after Grant was born (8.5 months ago), showering was my first luxury. This was followed by shaving, giving myself a good blow out and eventually things like haircuts and pedicures.

Well, people, I’m moving into a world of spoiling myself again and here are my latest favorites!!!

I finally bought myself a Volcano candle from Anthropologie…before only as gifts!

NARS blush in Desire (blue pink). 

Tarte BB Cream for a “daily” easy look. “I woke up like this.”

The softest, most stylish pajamas I’ve ever had from Maison Du Soir. They pack up so small and and light. PERFECT for our upcoming vacation. Now I can stop dressing like a Yeti at least one night a week. This top will also be seen as daywear with jeans! HA!

Caudalie. Real eye/lip antiaging cream and I actually use it daily (probably because it was like a million dollars).

What are you spoiling yourself with? If not, what do you want!? 

P.S. Did a quick overhaul yesterday of the design. Thought about it a lot and then sped through the nuts and bolts. Needs a bit of work but what do you think?

  • what a great idea. I’m currently pregnant and never thought of this. haha. =D


    • Hi, Nancy! Congratulations on your pregnancy! How exciting! I was never into cruising until I met my husband. We have been on many now (Caribbean and Europe). It was our babymoon too! It was great with a baby…just keep in mind what stage your baby is in…my latest Really it’s always fun. I hope you do it!

  • I really like the new look, I think it captures your blog well!
    I think it’s good to treat ourselves once in a while. I bought myself a pair of skinny jeans and a cute key print top in the UK, and a natural fragrance by Pacifica, because I am allergic to synthetic fragrance — which unfortunately also rules out lots of gorgeous candles, which is a realy bummer because like you, I love a good candle!
    The pjs are so cute, and the tee will definitely look cute with jeans and boots.
    Here’s to the small luxuries! 🙂

    • Yes, Elisa, CHEERS to that! Thank you for the blog design compliments as well! Yes, I really enjoy the Pacifica scents. They do an excellent job!

      It’s funny, I went to a trunk show at a boutique featuring different designers where I met Courtney of MDS and she wears her loungewear line as day wear. SOLD! HA! It gives new meaning to “day to night” outfit! lol I like the boots idea!

  • Constance

    I love that blush and those pijamas are super cute!

    • Thank you, Constance! Oh the PJs feel like nothing but also feel warm. Thank you for stopping by!

  • I really love the new look! Also, just gimme alllll the Caudalie products. Their stuff is the bomb!

    • Ashley!!! OK, my web designer friend, I’m so glad you like it! I want to someday help people with their sites too like you do!! I have been thinking about you!

  • Brianna DePauw

    Volcano is my absolute favorite candle. I think I have 3!

    • Oh yes, Brianna! That Volcano scent is my crack! HA! If I can’t reside in an Anthropologie, I want to smell like I do. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

  • You totally deserve some pampering since you’ve been in total Mommy mode. Beauty products are my preferred mode of spoiling too. I’ve been spoiling myself with rich handcreams, snail lip balm and sheet masks lately. I like the cleaner look of your redesign Christina.

    Rowena @ rolala loves

    • Thank you, Rowena! SNAIL lip balm!!!??? AHHHHH I am so curious! I would love to have a look at your bathroom cabinet. I remember my mom always having some kind of mask in her cabinets growing up. She would even make them out of tissue and then a mixture that included egg!

  • Nars is my favorite!
