Happy Monday everyone, and Happy Day 1 of MOMMY Week! Leading up to Mother’s Day (which is this Sunday!) I’m partnering up with some of my favorite brands to talk to you all about the best “job” in the world: being a mom. Today, I teamed up with my lovely friends at MCM to talk about something that’s often overlooked after you have kids.
I’ve mentioned this before, and I still continue to struggle with it, but I still carry a lot of mom guilt. Don’t get me wrong, I am so thankful for the life that I have and wouldn’t change anything about it, but it’s always been a constant struggle to figuring out how to balance my work life, my marriage, being a sister, being a friend and being a mom all at the same time without feeling guilty for wanting to have some ‘me-time’.
I have to constantly be reminded that it’s okay to take some time alone once in a while and treat myself every once in a while. I’m always on the go and working, so having a moment to myself is few and far between. I’m still trying to find ways not to feel guilty about it, but at the end of the day, you have to take care of yourself. If you’re not 100%, how can you be 100% for those around you?
So, when I saw this wallet from MCM’s Laurel Lock series, the fun nature of the design instantly transported my mentality to a really fun and happy place. The wallet marries functionality and femininity and in a constant reminder that no matter where I am or what I’m doing, to remember to have a little fun. There’s also an optional strap you can add!
So whether it’s treating yourself to a spa day, a cute cocktail, something new and shiny, or even a bath and a glass of wine, try to find a moment of peace amid the chaos. You’ll be happy you did and boy do you deserve it!
