Transitioning into life as a mom of two hasn’t been as easy as I had pictured in my head. It’s a constant juggling act between my 7 year old and my 1 month old, and that doesn’t include other errands and household chores that need to be done. I often feel like I’m being stretched too thin, and I’m not spending time for myself. Managing to get a relaxing shower is a luxury and a crapshoot. Even if I get the baby down for a nap, who knows if she’ll stay asleep for the duration of my shower?
It’s definitely time for me to take a night to take care of and pamper myself, and that’s where the Mom’s Night In subscription box comes into play!!
The Mom’s Night In subscription box is filled with items to make YOUR special night in extra spectacular. Moms deserve time to themselves.
I waited until both girls fell asleep for the night (or in Juliana‘s case – for a couple hours) then I delved into the box full of special goodies that helped me feel more like a human again!
In my Mom’s Night In subscription box, I received:
- Snyder’s of Hanover 100-calorie pack Mini Pretzels
- Wilton Candy Melts
- Small spiral notebook
- Stationary envelopes
- Argan Oil from Morocco Repairing Deep Conditioner
- Ghiradelli Hot Cocoa with Chocolate Chips
- Jelly Belly Jelly Beans
- Soothing Touch Bath, Body & Massage Oil
- Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Nail Polish
- “Slay the Day” pen
- 3 perfume samplers
One of my favorite treats to indulge in is candy pretzels. The 100-calorie pack of mini pretzels, plus the candy melt drizzle pouch allowed me to munch on a beloved snack without having to share. Win!
Writing letters is a lost art. I remember when I was in middle and high school, my friends and I would pass letters back and forth to each other. This was before the days of texting and Facebook, btw! With these envelopes and this notebook, I plan to write letters to my daughters, along with my significant other. One of the reasons I have a blog is because writing is therapeutic for me, but it’s been quite some time since I actually wrote a handwritten letter!
I’ve actually tried out Argan Oil from Morocco’s Repairing Deep Conditioner previously, and it’s a hair care product that I absolutely LOVE. My hair has seen better days and was beginning to feel like straw, but after just using a sample of the repairing deep conditioner, my hair feels soft and smooth again. I plan on purchasing a bigger size of this product STAT!
I’m one of those weird folks that doesn’t particularly like hot cocoa, so I tucked this packet away for my oldest daughter’s stocking this Christmas. She loves hot chocolate, and I know she’ll ask me to make a cup as soon as all her presents have been opened and oo’ed and ahh’ed over!
In addition to the hot cocoa, I also held this Jelly Belly Jelly Beans pack back for my daughter’s stocking.
If there’s one thing I can never turn down, it’s a massage! Luckily, I have a significant other who gives the best massages, and he was happy to provide one for me using this massage oil from Soothing Touch. My back is beat up from the hours of back labor and being stuck with an epidural needle. This massage oil soothed and calmed my sore muscles, and I was able to get a good amount of sleep that night!
Not many things make me feel more ‘put together‘ than freshly painted nails. I’ve been loving nude shades lately, and this Sally Hansen Insta-Dri polish is right up my alley! I can appreciate the fact that this polish dries quickly because I never know when I have to tend to the baby.
You can purchase your very own Mom’s Night In subscription box for you or the amazing mom in your life this holiday season for just $34.99/month or by prepaying 3, 6 or 12 months!
