Nothing says relax like walking into a room with a calming fragrance filling the space. Self-care is all about taking the steps to slow down, focus on you and ensuring your physical and mental health is priority.  Macro-influencer Genese Jamilah created a collection of products that prioritize self-care with a selection of fragrances in a travel size to go along with moms when traveling or unwinding once they’re home from a trip.

Choose from fragrances Jasmine and Sandalwood, Lavender and Vanilla, Lavender and Eucalyptus and more.  She deserve it. Self care is what her children will see and practice too.  Visit their website and select the fragrance that says “relax!”


Moms love a chance to sit and play with the kids. We know finding a way to relax is high on the list, but also finding a fun way to connect to their child is high on that same list.  CMY Cubes are filled with color and wonder, making it a fun way to spending a little down time, creating shapes and colors.It is not your usual cube toy, it is a truly unique and interactive toy, the CMY Cubes will keep children and adults engaged and entertained for hours. Warning: The CMY Cubes are addictive!

This fascinating cube appears to create an ever-changing spectrum of colour, providing you with endless enjoyment. Each face of the translucent cube is coated in electromagnetically subtractive materials which at first, appear as cyan, magenta, or yellow. With a twist and turn of the geometry, these seemingly primary colors magically transform into an array of colors.
Grab one or two for mom because one just won’t due. Everyone will be ready to twist and turn with mom.  Visit the website –
Don’t leave home without them. They are readers, blue light protectors and sunglasses.  You choose the frame and the lens. Select one, two or three ways to protect your eyes.
The frame options are fun, stylish, classy and some are funky-fabulous. Whatever your style you’ll find your match with Eyebobs.  Really the name should be Eye-buddies because you’ll love them like a buddy.  After all they are protecting your eyes. Unique frames for your one-of-a-kind style.
Check out some of the various frames and lens options on their website.
Below are a couple of my favorites.
