- To relieve your stress on a fall day as you drag yourself and your children to school and work I would highly suggest having some tea on hand. Some of the yummiest loose tea (which I prefer to teabags) I have found in a while, David's Tea. I have even perfected how to make myself a cup... you know welfare styles (using a mug and not-for-tea strainer lol!) ANYWAYS if you buy online they'll send you three samples along with your purchase. But their stores smell amazing so I would suggest the full sensory overload on this one.
- To make all the other moms dropping there kids off at school jealous of your feet I would have to INSIST that you take a looky-lou at Naot's fall line. We all know how much and how quickly I fell in love with my summer sandals from them, they're so comfy and I can't wait to go get my hands on some of their fall line! I just HAVE to have these boots!!! or these shoes I have no idea which ones but I am completely in love with them and practically everything else!! So I can't wait to see what I pick when I get in to go shopping!
- To help you worry less on those dark winter days I would really suggest getting your little ankle bitters these awesome reflectors for their jackets and backpacks!! They're called Safees and they're the best reflectors you can get on the market right now, they work great and I know I'll be using mine when I have to walk all the kids to and from school everyday. I dread the days of waking to darkness and having to walk the kids... especially in the dark, so at least this way I am not worried about not being seen. I can say also that these things will stay on your kids! I took ours out for our hike up to the meteor shower and they stayed put, even after running around, snuggling, being carried, they didn't move! I will be busting these out + my bike glow this year for Halloween you can guarantee it!
- To help relieve your senses I would suggest a Deodorgrams! You can even do this anonymously for your teen as to not completely embarrass them... well at least not DIRECTLY and it can't be traced back to you. Unless you are me and have now blogged about it, in theory it is traceable back to me lol!! Perhaps a great stocking stuffer idea?? You can blame it on Santa: "he could smell you from the north pole!!" lots of potential for any occasion with this one believe you me!
So while you're out dragging your ass threw stores, trampling people for sales etc... take some time to buy something FOR YOU! I mean you survived summer after all right???
