This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx. Thank you for supporting the brands that support this blog.


It’s that time of year again. Days spent attempting to enjoy the last bit of summer while preparing for all things back to school. In the craziness of it all, what better time to treat yourself?! As a busy mom, I have to put aside time for myself, or else I get burned out quickly. I’ve compiled a list of all of my favorite pick-me-ups when busy schedules and obligations get to be too much! Keep reading for my four self-care tips!



Vichy is your skin’s daily dose of strength and is now created exclusively for the sensitive skin around your eyes! Minéral 89 Eyes Hyaluronic Acid Eye Gel hydrates, brightens, and smoothes fine lines around the delicate eye area, which is especially sensitive to the impact of daily aggressors like lack of sleep and stress. Sound familiar, moms?! One of my goals for this fall is to establish a better skincare routine, now that I will have more time to get ready in the morning! The formula combines 89% Vichy Mineralizing Water, Natural Origin Hyaluronic Acid and Pure Caffeine for a brighter and rested look. Use code Babble19 for 10% off + Free Shipping here.



I swear these REEF Sandals are the comfiest and cutest sandals! I love that they can be worn more casual or dressed up, and they also come in eight different colors! I love wearing them while applying a face mask, or simply taking time for myself to get ready in the morning. The sandals also include features like anatomical arch support, heal cupping and a high-density rubber sponge outsole that does all the heavy lifting for you. REEF’s signature Cushion Bounce foam footbed makes walking around all day a breeze, perfect for on-the-go busy moms! Subscribe here for 20% off your first order over $49!



Hair masks are one of my favorite things to do weekly! I have been using the same one for a while now and wasn’t sure what to expect with this new one I picked up, but I had heard great things about the Quench & Shine Restorative Mask! It is a color-safe conditioning treatment to soften, detangle and revive all hair types without weighing it down. An ultra-rich blend of Kokum, Shea, Cupuacu and Bacuri Butters quenches thirsty strands, enriching hair with nourishment and hydration! Argan and Moringa Oils smooth unruly split-ends and deliver a healthy-looking shine. Improved hair elasticity and strength help reduce frizz and texture, resulting in supremely soft, irresistibly touchable hair! This is on my list of things to do with my time when Aimery starts school!



I also fell in love with the Smooth & Shine Hair Serum which helps banish frizz, tame fly aways and quench dry ends with the light-weight, transformative power of CottonSeed Oil. Additionally, essential nutrients from Neem Oil and Hibiscus Oil help strengthen, protect and nourish hair so that it feels soft and looks amazing!

Nothing says treat yourself more than the Charles & Colvard Forever One Moissanite Solitaire Pendant in 14K White Gold! Moissanite is the world’s most brilliant gem! A naturally occurring gemstone that is recreated and perfected through beautiful, iterative and patented science in a lab. It’s not a diamond stimulant – or a diamond wannabe. It’s a white gemstone with unique optical properties that out sparkles all others. One of the things I love most about Moissanite is that it’s made, not mined. Because it's not mined, tremendous amounts of earth aren't displaced, or water isn't contaminated in the creation process!

With preparing for fall and Aimery’s first year of all day school, there's no shortage of things to do and errands to run. Even though this time of year is all about him, there is ever a wrong time for self care! I’ve recently been making an effort to set aside time periodically for myself and it’s done wonders!
