‘Mum. A Title Just Above Queen’
Motherhood. Days that go buy in a caffeine fueled, bleary eyed haze as you tend to the needs of your family. It’s beautiful, joyful and amazing but it’s hard work. Being a mum often means putting your needs on the back burner as you attend to others. As a mum of three i totally get that. I can be the biggest procrastinator when it comes to self-care. I will have all good intentions of a long bath (hell even a short one would be nice) or some time out by myself but it often doesn’t happen. In my own self-care discovery I have started to enjoy even the little things. The beautiful packaging, the smell as you open the box of goodies. The feeling of soft skin after an invigorating coffee scrub first thing in the morning.
Mother’s Day is the perfect day to remind yourself to take some time for you. A day to enjoy letting your kids make you soggy toast and cold tea in bed. A day that you can show your own mum just how much you love and appreciate her. For she of all people know just how tough this motherhood gig can be!
I feel very lucky to source beautiful, artisan products perfect for self-care that I can share with you. Toxin free and handmade with love from local Australian makers that care about you and the environment. These make gorgeous and thoughtful gifts that will delight your mum or encourage you to take some time for yourself. I have compiled a list of my top picks for mum.
