Intentionally Bare

Intentionally Bare, has become synonymous with quality health and wellness keto-friendly supplements that aid in weight loss, energy, anti-aging, and optimal nutrition. The company’s commitment to providing consumers with transparent ingredient lists and remaining gluten and cruelty-free have made them a rising star in the nutritional supplement industry. Additionally, each Intentionally Bare product is manufactured in the USA. 

All of the above is what should make Intentionally Bare a staple in your mother’s home! I use them myself and would be thrilled to be gifted these amazing nutritional supplements. My favorites are Keto BHB Raspberry Electrolytes for proper hydration and Collagen Peptides Biotin to replenish the much-needed collagen in my body for healthy hair, skin, and nails. 

 

Fashionable Cocktail Sneakers

Shoes

Who ever said you have to wear stilletos to compliment your “evening attire” obviously NEVER wore stilletos! Why must we sacrifice comfort for style? Thanks to Cocktail Sneakers we don’t! These fashionable sneakers can take you from a little league game into a board meeting in style. 

Cocktail Sneakers are designed for every woman. 

Each sneaker, aptly named for chapters in women’s lives — Professional, Traveler, Weekender, Outsider and Occasion –showcases Cocktail Sneakers’ signature almond-shaped toe, delivering a soft, feminine silhouette while our deep heel cup and shock-absorbing insole provides both arch support and the comfort of an athletic shoe.

This perfect harmony was achieved through years of development. Founded in Marblehead, MA and designed in Brooklyn, NY, Cocktail Sneakers were wear-tested and brought to life by a team of talented women from around the globe. From a female-owned and operated factory, to all-female branding, design and development teams, Cocktail Sneakers was created by women, for women — riveted on a critical point of differentiation which is, “how do Cocktail Sneakers make you feel?”

Give Back

One of my favorite features of Cocktail Sneakers (besides the obvious comfort) is their support of Soles4Souls. Helping others is such an important part of humanity! We are all in this thing called life together – giving a gift of used shoes may not mean much to you, but it could mean the world to the recipient! Thank you Cocktail Sneakers for spreading the Love!

Get mom out of the stuffy uncomfortable shoes this Mothers Day with a pair of Cocktail Sneakers! She will thank you!

Collagen Peptides from Naked Nutrition

Collagen Peptides

I am a proud 42 year old mother of 3. That “40 something” number does not bother me in the least. The feeling that comes with that number however, that’s where me and the number have an issue! Aging is inevitable, and along with aging our body changes. One of the things I’ve noticed the most since going over the Proverbial hill, is my skin. As we age our body produces less collagen – a word I didn’t even know until the last few years – but what a difference a little collagen can make!

Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins found in the human body. It is responsible for providing strength, structure, and elasticity to skin, bones, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue.  Collagen is vital for skin hydration and elasticity. Loss of collagen often contributes to dry and wrinkled skin as we age. Supplementing with collagen peptides can help your skin stay smooth, hydrated, and firm. 

Naked Collagen has only one ingredient: Bovine hide collagen peptides sourced from pasture-raised cows in Europe. It is odorless, tasteless, and easy to mix in with your favorite drinks. Each serving includes 9 grams of protein and only 35 calories.  Naked collagen is free of additives and artificial sweeteners. Naked Nutrition is committed to shortening the steps between their farms and you. 

I love these pre-measured packets of collagen! I can keep one in my purse for those mornings I don’t have time to make my coffee before running out the door. I can slip it in my drink later in the day and still get my collagen in for the day! 

 

Sienna Sport Sandals from Viakix

Sporty sandals

I learned along time ago that if my “platform” is unkept I will not be moving very well. Your feet determine where you go and how quickly you can get there! Therefore, we must pamper them the way they deserve! The Siena Sport Sandals from Viakix are ultra comfy and add support just where we need it!

Viakix uses a proprietary arch stabilizer technology to provide an ergonomically designed insole with contoured arch support.

All of the Viakix sandals are designed to provide that cozy, comfortable, satisfying fit.  These sandals have an adjustable strap around the ankle to customize to your needs. 

I can attest, any mama on your list will give a BIG Thank You once she slips her tired feet in these sandals! Get where You’re gong in style – With Viakix!

Beauty goes beyond the skin; True beauty comes from deep within!  That is why it is so very important for us, as moms, to take time for ourselves each day.

In The Mexican Home Kitchen, you will find homestyle meals that are cooked in everyday life in Mexico, dishes that people are making today in their kitchens for their families. These range from comforting foods like caldo de pollo and carne con papas, celebratory recipes like mole poblano and pastel de cumpleaños, and classics like tamales and pozole, as well as aguas frescas prepared with in-season fruits. These are all meals that bring back memories for many Mexicans, who, like me, miss our culture. When we cook them, it’s almost as if we take a little trip back home and sit down with our grandma or mom to enjoy a meal that they prepared with lots of love. You will also find recipes for making basics, like corn and flour tortillas, salsas, rice, and beans.

Our lives are busier than ever before, leaving us burned out…and leaving our homes cluttered. The Holistic Guide to Decluttering shows how three core components—physical, time, and mental clutter—are intricately linked and how focusing on one area alone is not likely to bring the peace our souls desire.

Luxurious Silk Pillowcase from Celestial Silk

 

A goodnights sleep is the cornerstone to our health. It is impossible to function happily and healthy without getting the proper amount of sleep. If you are a mom, you know getting our sleep hours in can prove difficult for weeks on end.  

You spend almost 1/3 of your life in bed. Why not make the most of it and make those sleeping hours work for you?  Mulberry silk pillowcases from Celestial Silk help retain the moisture in your skin and hair, resulting in a smoother complexion and softer (less frizzy) hair. Beautify while you sleep.

Available in 20 colors and in standard, queen and king sizes – our silk pillowcases are made with 100% pure mulberry silk. We have two styles: zippered and envelope. Both are made with side enclosures and are designed to keep the silk pillowcase snugly on the pillow. The zipper is almost undetectable and secures the silk pillowcase on the pillow. The envelope style (also called the “housewife” style) is your traditional style of pillowcase with a hidden flap inside to secure the silk pillowcase while you sleep.
