It’s time to focus on your needs as a Mom

Now it’s time to focus on your needs as a Mom and take care of your body. You need to be there healthy in body and mind for your kids and here are a few women products that I love.


I’m guilty. Guilty of putting myself last. Guilty of giving everything to everyone and wondering why I’m not looking or feeling so hot lately. It’s time to focus on your needs as a Mom now….no I mean NOW. This post is sponsored by on behalf of Single Edition Media.

I know I am not the only one here. When you’re a taxi cab to your kids activities, a cook, a maid, a wife, a mom………a lot of the focus we should be putting on ourselves and our health goes by the way side. Stop, let’s change our focus shall we….all of us.

There is nothing selfish about taking care of ourselves, in fact it’s of the utmost importance because WE are the only ones in charge of it really, and we all want to be running around and being silly with our grandkids some day. It seems like a long time off sometimes, but as my oldest begins to drive I realize they are getting older quickly….and so am I!! Here’s where I’ve started my focus on ME this winter.

One thing you should know about me, I’m a homebody…and a bit lazy when it comes to shopping in an actual store. If I can have it delivered I will, so when I had all of these fabulous products promoting women’s health delivered to me it was my sign to get goin’! 😉 Let me share with you what I received, and links to have it delivered to your door too:

  • illumai Biome Care System for Hair – can we talk about hair for a minute…like before and after we had kids! Totally NOT the same. I once had long thick straight hair I could use cheap products on and nothing phased it….not anymore.
  • I’ve learned as I neared and now that I am 40 that there IS a big difference in hair care products and it makes a huge difference when I use great stuff AND I feel way better about myself and the way I look when I use them. We deserve to look and feel great, even at 40…and beyond.

Here are the details:

  • 3-product system that helps you #detoxyourlocks from everyday toxins (2 for shower and 1 spray for after)
  • helps restore and retain a natural, healthy balance from environmental stresses on your hair
  • NO sulfates (great if you color your hair) 100% color safe
  • DEAL – get 40% off either size they offer, use code 87-TYPICALMOM at checkout (exp. 11/30/16)
  • Lancer’s Intensive Night Treatment – next up, let’s talk about our skin for a minute. You know those anti aging and under eye creams you would always get as a free gift with the lipstick you really wanted when you were younger….well those actually work!!
  • I never actually invested in good night treatment moisturizers until I was just about to turn 40 and in just a year I see the difference. Of course avoiding the sun helps too, but I now won’t go without good quality cream for my face.

Here are the details:

  • anti-aging cream with hydrating agents including Hylaplex®
  • creates a moisture barrier and helps skin retain healthy hydration
  • gives you a smoother, plumper appearance
  • Beverly Hills-based dermatologist created it and tested on 30×000 patients
  • contains Marula Oil – nourishes skin with high levels of essential fatty acids
  • Bio-engineered Soybean Extract reduces skin flakiness by bolstering moisture
  • DEAL – 10% off 1st order for new customers, use code bestskin at checkout
  • Ultimate Flora™ Extra Care Probiotic – I actually have been taking one of these every day for quite some time now…yeah me! I heard they helped replenish the good bacteria in our bodies and especially for women it was a great supplement to take, so “why not” I thought.

Here are the details:

  • 200 billion live probiotic cultures per serving
  • up to 40 scientifically studied probiotic strains to improve digestive balance and support immune health
  • delayed-release vegetable capsules
  • helps to achieve a healthier gut
  • Simply Sensitive Summer’s Eve® Cleansing Cloths – yet another one I already had in my house but always run out! Let’s face it, if I could unsubscribe from my monthly subscription of periods I totally would! But……since I’m not quite of that age yet it is nice to have something for sensitive skin, and areas, to make you feel a bit more refreshed during “those times” and others.

Here are the details:

  • gentle formula that won’t irritate sensitive skin
  • hypoallergenic and alcohol-free
  • perfect to toss in your gym bag, and keep in your purse
  • 23andMe DNA Collection Kit – ok so I think this is kinda’ a cool one…let me explain. I’ve always been curious about my genealogy, who isn’t, and even at 40 have no real idea where all of my ancestors may have come from.
  • This kit makes it super simple to find that out, along with other important info. involved with your health (prevention is always best). It takes about 6 weeks to get your results back so you’ll have to wait to hear me share my results with you (future blog post), but this came in my box too.

Here are the details:

  • receive 65+ personalized genetic reports in 4 key areas
  • learn about your ancestry, family history, maternal & paternal lineage
  • receive a wellness report in regards to your diet, caffeine consumption, lactose intolerance, muscle composition, deep sleep and sleep movement.
  • receive a traits report regarding your food preferences, to physical features, hair loss and more
  • learn your carrier status, important if you’re planning to have a family or learn if you’re a carrier for an inherited condition

All of these items lead me on a great start to put me and my health first. It’s baby steps I say. I know I cannot stop all the stress in my life, but there are some things I can do to put myself on a good path to feeling better, looking better, and knowing my background/carrier status for a possible inherited condition….I’m on it! 😉

I'm finally learning to "take care of me" it's tough but I notice when I do I'm a way better Momma. I love your hair product I'll have to try it. Another thing I managed to fit in for "me time" is at least a 20 minute workout 5 days a week. Thanks for sharing!
