How to Pamper Yourself on a Mom Budget [with] Vera Wang Fragrance


This post was sponsored by Vera Wang Fragrances as part of an Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.  All opinions are 100% my own.

For us moms, it's easy to get to a spot where you feel run down, overwhelmed and so far beyond exhausted that you can't think straight.  I believe it is imperative to your families health as well as your own to take care of yourself.  Have a You Retreat.  Pamper Yourself.  Relax.

This thought has hit me with a ton of bricks several times lately, but the difficult part is finding the time and the means to treat yourself.  I thought I would give you 5 easy ways to pamper yourself that won't break the bank and would leave you feeling refreshed and recharged.



  1. A You Retreat: Rent a hotel room or local cottage and just get away to rest, get your meal plan figured out in solitude, or meditate on your goals for the year.  Too many times these important tasks get pushed down the list because we don't have the time to sit down and finish them in a busy household.  You will feel so accomplished after a day alone to tackle these tasks.
  2. Grab Some Sun: It's amazing what a little vitamin D will do to your mind and soul.  It's a medical fact that sunlight releases serotonin which in return boosts your mood and can help you feel calm and focused.
  3. A Delightful Surprise:  Sometimes, it feels awesome to throw those diet worries to the wind and indulge in a dessert.  It's apple pie time and nothing is more filling then slipping away to your favorite chair with a plate full of pie just for you.  No sharing with toddlers allowed.
  4. A Road Trip:  I enjoy getting out and just driving.  The windows down, a favorite song on the radio and just you and the road.  It's where some of my best thinking comes in. 
  5. A Sweet Treat for Yourself: There is nothing quiet as rewarding as treating yourself ever now and then to a surprise.  Something that makes you feel feminine, lovely, and desirable.  Vera Wang Marigold and Gardenia fragrance, the newest member of the Embrace Collection is just the key to empowering your inner goddess.  It has become my go too fragrance each day to help revitalize me.

Can I just spare a moment of your time to tell you how lovely this new fragrance is?  It is seriously my new go to scent.  The sweet marigold and gardenia fragrance will have you channeling your inner southern bell in no time.  It's like a moment in time.  It's the perfect treat when pampering yourself to make you feel confident, beautiful and desirable in your own skin. 

Vera Wang Marigold Gardenia is available for purchase at Kohl's in stores or online.  For just $29.99, it may be one of the cheapest ways to pamper yourself and make you feel like the beautiful woman you are.
