One of the biggest pieces of advice I give new moms, tired moms, seasoned moms, all moms (and also probably should give to myself) is that you need to take time out for yourself. Even if it's just a few minutes to sip your coffee hot or to just read a FB post without being interrupted, it's so crucial to have that.

On the flip side, I know it's tough to get those few minutes in - especially with school starting up. It already feels like there's no time for ourselves, now through in new schedules, homework, after-school activities, and us mamas feel like we've been through the ringer - over and over again.

Finding little things to feel like a mini-pamper sesh is the key to this mama's sanity. Here's a few of my fave products that make me feel pampered, pretty and put together and only take a few minutes - if any! - to use.


My under-eye area is, hands down, the first to give away how tired I really am. It doesn't seem to matter how much water I drink, if I get less than six hours, that area is more sunken than a pirate ship. Cue: Vichy Mineral 89 Eyes, an under-eye gel that combines 89% Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water with natural hyaluronic acid and pure caffeine for a daily boost of strength for the most delicate skin. Come to mama! This chick needs all the hydration and caffeine she can get! Added bonus: it's paraben and fragrance-free and approved by an ophthalmologist!

These Cushion Bounce Vistas from REEF are a mama-on-the-go's dream sandal. You have no idea the happiness I get from being able to slip these babies on and head out the door! Not only are they freakin' adorable but they feature REEF's signature Cushion Bounce foam footbed but it also includes an anatomical arch support, heal cupping and high density rubber sponge outsole. Geez, these sandals are more souped up than a sports car....and I'm totally diggin' it. Plus, those cute gold straps? PVC-free vegan leather. Aw, yeah, baby.

And after I wash it, I use this Colleen Rothschild Quench & Shine Restorative Mask! It's a color-safe conditioning treatment filled with a blend of Kokum, Shea, Capuacu and Bacuri Butters to drench your hair with nourishment and hydration. It also contains some Argan and Moringa oils to smooth down any unruly hairs. Also, this smells amazing. Mom Hack: I use this as a conditioner after I shampoo when I don't have time to use it as a mask!

After the mask, I like to apply a small amount of the Colleen Rothschild Quench & Shine Hair Serum to the ends of my hair before blow drying or after blow drying for an extra shine. It contains Cotton Seed, Neem Leaf and Hibiscus oil and even has a UV filter. It takes just a few seconds and really gives my hair that nice, smooth "blown out" look without actually getting a blow out.

Okay, okay. So I know this one is a bit of a splurge but, hear me out, I'll be the first to admit that simply even adding a necklace to my outfit turns it up a notch and makes me feel a little more put together. It's the little things, I swear. This simple yet gorgeous number is the Forever One 0.50CTW Round Moissanite Solitaire Pendant in 14K White Gold from Charles & Colvard. Yep, you read that right. This is Moissanite, a gorgeous white gemstone made (not mined) in a lab. Cool fact: Because it's not mined, the Earth is not disturbed nor water contaminated in the creation of it.
