Remember to be kind to yourself. You can’t pour from an empty cup!
Happy Friday friends!
Hope you’ve all had a wonderful week.
Psst…did you know that today’s MAY 1ST!! And you know what that means right?! You only have 9 days to find your Mom THE perfect gift for Mother’s Day.
So, to help you get ready for the occasion, I thought I’d put together a list of budget friendly gift ideas your Mom will definitely love!
Let’s jump right into it!
SLIP Silk Pillowcase – Standard/Queen
Did you know that cotton can hold up to 27 times its own weight in water and it actually draws moisture away from your skin and hair? When you sleep on silk, delicate facial skin is more hydrated in the morning and hair becomes healthier over time. Cotton pillowcases also cause sleep creases, which go away later that day but can cause fine lines and wrinkles over time. Sooo, share that info with your Mom + tell me she isn’t begging for a set of silk pillowcases!
These SLIP silk pillowcases come in a number of colors, including: navy, gold, pink, white, charcoal, caramel, black, marble, pink marble.
These candles are pricey, but I’m confident your Mom will thank you for this high end goodie!
