What does EVERY MOTHER ON THE PLANET WANT MORE THAN ANYTHING, YOU ASK?
So my 2017 Mother’s Day gift guides kick off with my favorite part of the day . . . bedtime. (Long agrees) Treat your fave mums in your life to some sleepytime essentials to help her catch her Zzzzzzzs and not become Mommy Dearest. (one of my many nicknames is Joan by the way . . . get it?)
1. I personally struggle with insomnia and need a little somethin’ somethin’ more than melatonin to drift off, if you catch my drift (pun intended always). This clever brass box was my very favorite Christmas gift this year and makes me smile whenever I see it on my bedside table. (Thanks, Lis)
It’s a whole real thing!
and don’t just take my word for it – as seen in . . .
3 & 4. One of the reasons bedtime is my fave is my nighttime Beautycounter ritual. The rejuvenating night cream and plumping oil (with peony extract) feel like heaven and I trust them to perfectly hydrate my skin throughout
my dreams of Riggins all night. And help me look like Lyla when I wake up!
10. SO the One Line A Day book that’s been sitting on my bedside table guiltily staring at me for years apparently isn’t easy enough for me.
I need prompting, lots and lots of prompting, to write! (Long can back me up on this) Enter the Q & A a Day for Moms. I know I would sleep a bit better knowing I was at least documenting some of this crazy ride called mommyhood.
11. Cashmere Cool Mom Slippers. Yes and YASSSSS.
12. I am lost without my noise machine. This one has sounds that never repeat – no creepy wave loop! And all sorts of other crazy shiz. Which all promotes a more productive sleep cycle . . . or something like that.
Is it bedtime yet?
Joan is ti-ti.
OMG I almost forgot one of my other fave gifts to give and receive (I bought one for Long for Christmas and obvs one for myself, too)
or blog partners 😉
