As moms we often times become so busy with our children that we forget about ourselves. I can't tell you how many times I've heard moms talking about how their children look like baby Gap models and they look like a walking dead extra. And while I do find that quite funny (and sometimes true for even myself) I also realize the importance of taking care of mama too... which is why I want to share 5 AWESOME small shops AND discount codes for all my mama's out there!
Mommy-ing is hard... like really hard. You could say I feel like I'm hustling through my day most (every) day and so when I saw Huddy Drew's newest tee design "Hustle All Day, then Rosé" tee I just knew I had to have it!
I absolutely adore this tee and I think all of my mama friends out there would agree that its just as much fun to dress up as it is to dress down!
Not a wine drinker? Not a problem. Huddy Drew Clothing has you covered with their perfect for Fall weather Adventure Seeker raglans! Be sure to check them out on Instagram (@huddydrewclothing) to check out their newest releases, I hear they have a ton of new items in the works and I have a feeling they are all going to be top notch!

Because I can't recommend the Huddy Drew Clothing tee above and not recommend the perfect wine glass to pair with it!
I love the "Surviving Motherhood One Sip at a Time" saying on this glass - because let's face it - its totally true, whether your poison is wine, coffee or perhaps even tea! Obviously this wine glass is not meant for hot beverages but if you are not a wine drinker it is important to point out that this saying also comes on a super cute travel mug. If you aren't already, make sure to give Mom Life Must Haves a follow on Instagram (@momlifemusthave), you will love their entire "motherhood" line!

Now, I don't know one mom who does not rock the "mom-bun" at least a couple days a week or find that they just don't have time to spend taming those stray hairs before they leave the house. This is why you NEED to have a headband or two (I like variety!) handy. There are tons of small shops out there these days who supply such headbands but my all time favorite, hands down, is Noxx. (Surprise, surprise!)
You just can't go wrong with a Noxx headband, especially with this ivory signature style headband. My hair is up 95% of most days and there are usually at least 2 days a week I find that I am not able to shower until 2pm. On those days you can find me rocking my Noxx headband along with my mom-bun. Its my "momiform". LOL
Shop Noxx and use promo code: BLOG to save 25% on any headband purchase thru 9/30/16.
4. B. Stamped
Because sometimes mom deserves something shiny and pretty! Plus, who doesn't love a little bit of bling? B. Stamped is recently new to me and I just have to gush about how much I love my necklace and leather earrings from them!
This gold filled necklace is so dainty and elegant, yet perfect for every day wear. I can't tell you how many compliments I have gotten on it, I love it so much!
The neutral coloring of these leather earrings makes it easy to pair them with just about anything and I always love when I don't have to over think my outfit... no one has time for that! LOL I don't wear earrings too often but when I wore these I felt a little bit like the pre-mama me and it felt nice! You'll want to be sure to give B. Stamped a follow on Instagram (@bstampedbritt) to keep up with their beautiful jewelry line... trust me, you won't regret it!

I have a confession to make. I am TERRIBLE at taking proper care of my skin lately. I'm lucky if I'm able to remove my eye makeup before bed, let alone actually wash my face.... and I know how bad that is and I'm trying really hard to be better about it. This is one of the reasons I couldn't wait to try out this Urban Oreganics face mask. I must admit I was also very curious about how well a 100% natural, vegan and organic face mask could actually work. Let me tell you, it does NOT disappoint!
My skin felt incredibly soft afterward and actually makes me want to be 100x better about taking care of my skin. I'm actually still sitting here rubbing the back of my hand over my cheeks because I'm amazed at how nice and smooth it feels! LOL All moms out there deserve to be pampered and this face mask is nothing short of pampering your thirsty skin. Trust me ladies, you need this in your life! If you are not already following Urban Oreganics on Instagram (@urbanoreganics), go now! You will love their natural, organic products!
Shop Urban Oreganics and use promo code: NOXX20 for 20% off your purchase through October, 2016.
I hope I was able to introduce you all to a few new shops and I hope that you are all able to take advantage of these discounts! Remember, sometimes as a mama you need to stop and treat yo' self! You deserve it!!
