I’m back today with a bonus post this week (maybe that will make up for taking almost two weeks off recently??!!) as part of a linkup with a few other bloggers. We’re all sharing 5 little luxuries each under $50. I love these link-ups for a couple of reasons. 1) It’s a great way to get introduced to new blogs, and 2) I’m always up for discovering can’t live without products!
It might be the phase of life I’m in as a stay at home mom to two little ones, but my little luxuries are those small things that help me get through the tough moments. And if I’m being honest, there’s usually a tough moment or two in every day. :)
When I think of those little luxuries I reach for day after day, my Kari Gran lip whip and Aesop hand lotion (also available here) immediately come to mind. Nothing makes my lips and hands softer than these two. The hand lotion has the most amazing smell. It’s an investment so I don’t use it every day, but anytime I need a little pick me up or want to feel special. The first one I had lasted a year and a half! And when Sybil sees me apply the lip whip and wants some of her own, I don’t hesitate to put a little on her lips too. It’s all natural so I don’t have to worry about chemicals and toxins.
I normally make a list of clothing that I want each season, prioritize the items and then wait for a sale. All of that went out the window when I saw this Madewell tee at Nordstrom. I firmly believe you can never have too many stripes. The thin stripes are the perfect shade of blue for spring. And it’s under $20!
When I’m in the midst of said tough moments and my patience is fried, I open up Only Love Today to any random page. Whether you’re a parent or not, each page is full of hope and encouraging words. Usually I shed a quick tear, hug my kids and get on with our day grateful for everything we have.
The Beautycounter stick sunscreen has saved me more than once. I keep one in my bag at all times. It’s easy to apply, effective and my kids love to put it on by themselves. Lawson sometimes applies it to his pants too, but oh well.
Now for the really fun part…check out lots more little luxuries under $50!
