Moms do so much for their families and so often forget that they have needs too. It’s so important, not only to take time for yourself as a mom, but also to treat yourself with things you enjoy. When I had my first daughter I was notorious for buying all the things for her, and I mean ALL THE THINGS, but rarely ever bought nice things for myself. Well, times have changed, and this mama needs a little love too.
Here are my essentials that keep me looking and feeling my best in a split second.
1. Maskcara Makeup
This makeup is the best makeup. Enough said. I can put it on in under 10 minutes and the packaging is so handy that I can literally keep it with me at all times if necessary. My go-to colors for my face are Aura Highlight, Ash Contour, Hollywood Lip + Cheek, and Glamazing Powder Illuminator. Also necessary is my 30 Second HAC Brush.
It’s inexpensive – you can buy your entire face for only $56, which includes your face color, contour, blush, and an illuminator.

2. Aveda botanical kinetics energizing eye cream
I mean, let’s be honest, what mom doesn’t need an amazing eye cream in her life?! This one is my favorite ever and I put it on every morning without fail. I don’t know how to explain its magic, but it truly does liven up my whole eye area and take away my “mombie” look. Dark under eye bags BE GONE!
It’s $36, so I feel like that’s fairly comparable to other eye creams as well.
3. Red Wine
I’m not trying to kid anyone here, I definitely enjoy a glass or two of Cabernet Sauvignon a few times a week. Helps relieve some of the stress, but it just tastes SO good too! Here is my absolute favorite ⬇️
Kirkland Brand Cabernet Sauvignon
For the price, $7.99 in our store, this one cannot be beat. The flavor is amazing and it’s a larger bottle. I have tried all kinds of Cabernets, but I always come back to this one. If you haven’t tried it, definitely do! You will not regret it!
4. Ugg Funnel Neck Poncho
I dream about going home and putting this thing on all. day. long. Imagine living on a cloud – that’s what it feels like to wear this thing. It’s my happy place, and if I could buy one for every mom in the world I would totally do it.

5. Hydro Flask
Moms are busy people who often forget about hydrating during the hustle and bustle of the day. I used to be so good about getting my daily water intake in, but after I had my second baby I found myself slipping more and more in this category. Sure, I still drank lots of water, but it wasn’t where I needed to be. My Hydro Flask keeps my water cold all day long and I only have to refill it one time to be at my daily intake. Honestly though, I find myself filling it up even more than 2 times a day so often. It sounds dumb, but it inspires me and reminds me to drink water all day long.

6. Bow-Tie Elastics
These hair ties are my absolute favorite. They leave no damage to the hair and don’t leave a kink mark either. I originally bought these for Blaire, but found myself using them instead. Now I can’t live without them. I found mine at Ulta – link below ⬇️
