Mother’s Day Gift Guide

How is it already Mother’s Day? I feel like this year is completely flying by! I am doing my best to prepare a thoughtful Mother’s day gift guide to help inspire you all. This year more than ever we need to show our appreciation for the moms in our lives. Enjoy this guide, and I hope that you find a few items that would be wonderful for Mom.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide Self Care

This year above all I feel like moms need comfort and self care. Most of us are holding multiple roles and are having less time to devote to ourselves. Self care is extremely important so we can show up as the best version of ourselves for our kids. If we are not able to care for ourselves then our children will suffer also. Now let’s get to the gifts!

Mother’s Day Gift Guide Spa Time

We may not be able to go to the spa right now but who says you can’t bring the spa to mom. Here is a highly rated foot soak that I found on Amazon. Besides, what mom doesn’t need some help with those feet? Especially after being couped up all winter long. This has an affordable price point and is sure to make mom feel like a queen.

Pair this foot soak with this safer nail polish from Cote in this fabulous spring-inspired color. Cote is a lesser toxic option that is available on Amazon. Another new nail system you can try is Dazzle Dry , it is a non toxic system that promises to last up to two weeks. I recently received this as a birthday gift and hope to report back soon on its effectiveness. In the meantime here is a review from a fellow Beautycounter consultant and one of my favorite bloggers Cassy Joy Garcia of fed and fit.

Now to add the icing on the cake, you must snag this lemongrass body butter and sugar scrub. My mother in law is a huge fan of this sugar scrub and the scent is not at all overpowering. Follow the link below and search for lemongrass body set and it will pop right up for you.

Beautycounter and Mother’s Day

As a Beautycounter consultant, I have to be sure to include some of my favorite safer products in this Mother’s day gift guide. If you would like more information on this company and why I choose to become a consultant please be sure to check out this blog post.

A board that says beautycounter #betterbeauty

Beautycounter has a ton of awesome products but here are a few of my favorites for Mother’s day gifts. They include eye revive cooling masks for dark circles and puffy eyes. Almost every mom I know needs these! Pop these in the fridge for an even cooler effect.

What Mom couldn’t use a good mask right now? This counter plus charcoal mask is one of my absolute favorites and a best seller. It has a cooling sensation and is not overdrying. I like to use weekly to keep breakouts at bay and keep skin looking fresh.

I can’t forget the star of the show the overnight resurfacing peel. This has been a complete game-changer in my skin care routine. As stated on the website “Goodnight, dullness. Good morning, glow. Featuring a proprietary multi-acid complex, this leave-on AHA/BHA peel improves skin texture and boosts clarity without irritation or over-drying. This is definitely one of my favorite products.

Finally, I can’t forget to mention the peel’s newest companion the All bright C Serum which is clinically proven to even skin tone and improve skin radiance and brightness. Plus who can’t get over this gorgeous glass yellow bottle!

As always please reach out to me if you are in need of assistance and copy and paste this website and search for the product you are interested in

Summer 2019 Must Haves!

Alright Y’all the heat has turned up and got me thinking about my favorite must haves for this summer season. Whether you are planning on taking a trip to a more tropical location or just chillin at home these are this summers must haves! This summer guide for 2019 includes links to Amazon products because who doesn’t love AMAZON especially prime!

The Goods:

Lets start with one of the most important items you should have in your beach bag and that is SUNSCREEN! Listen up, May is skin cancer awareness month and sunscreen is our best defense. I have compiled some of my favorite sunscreens to help a sister out. I will be including some options for your little ones as well as everyone in the family.

This is my favorite sunscreen for my little one. It scores well on the environmental working group (EWG) website. It is reef safe and is SPF 50+ which is a very important factor for me when deciding which sunscreens I purchase.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I3DJ796/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00I3DJ796&linkCode=as2&tag=whatsupwingo-20&linkId=ea9c06c34f1e3cbe715ed5b9e65d67ae

The Alba sport mineral sunscreen is another awesome option. This product scores well on the EWG website also. I love that it is fragrance free as I have extremely sensitive skin.

So the next thing you need to pickup before your trip is an awesome sunless tanner. I have pale skin and need a little boost during this season so I don’t look too much like a zombie. Recently, I picked up this product because of its excellent reviews and the fact that is scored a 1 (the safest level) on EWG website was a huge bonus! I love the idea of a safer tan by using a self tanner. The problem many people don’t know is how many chemicals can be in these products. This one however is such a great option and am so excited to share it with you all!

Before you go applying that self tanner you need to pick up this mitt to help you achieve that perfect glow. This package is amazing and it includes a small mitt for your face and an exfoliating glove for prep before application.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MZ0PHYE/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B01MZ0PHYE&linkCode=as2&tag=whatsupwingo-20&linkId=51c37b58838a69b9eeeab2826eb1104b

I have found the best cooler bag to take with you to the beach, the office, or poolside. Packit has a bunch of different cooler options that you simply put in the freezer flat and the insulated gel provides the cooling that you need. Since you don’t have to put any additional cooler packs inside, you are left with a much larger area for all your goodies! I linked the picnic bag and its a must have!

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0185K91ME/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B0185K91ME&linkCode=as2&tag=whatsupwingo-20&linkId=c6acbcc50742f85d71e94f42fe641cf0

Girl you need this cover up and summer handbag! It will be the perfect accessory for dinners at the beach and that tassel is to die for! I am hooking you up with a link to a kimono that can also be paired with jeans and your favorite tank.

So i know you ladies love the look of a wide brim sunhat. I have several in my closet that I honestly have NEVER worn. The problem is a hat is to be used for hat hair! Whenever I reach for my hat or if I am at the beach, pool, or outside my hair is not down. Girl you need this hat it solves this problem!! It has the same gorgeous look of a wide brim sunhat but has a cut out at the top for your messy bun. Plus this particular hat has a bow where the hat comes together around your head. And bonus you can roll it up for ease of packing. Along with that hat you need the perfect oversized sunnies and with this tortoise shading it will look great on all skin tones.


I hope you have enjoyed my summer 2019 guide. Lets get the conversation going let me know what you ladies are loving this summer! I look forward to hearing what is up with you!
