There have been quite a few things that I have been loving lately that I haven’t had a chance to share here. I’ve been far better about sharing on Instagram than this space. However, today I’m sharing several things I’m loving since mid-March and haven’t made it on here. Most of them also happen to be the perfect things for the mom on your list for Mother’s Day. Frankly, it wasn’t planned that way BUT since I’m a mom and love these things right now I’m pretty sure the mom on your list will too.
I discovered Sweet Thing Caramels on Instagram and we chatted a bit about collaborating together. I got a sweet little box of from scratch Caramels that have the most beautiful packaging. Their Caramels come in these nice gift boxes and are not only beautifully packaged but also delicious. It took a lot for me to not devour all of them the first day, instead I shared with my family and savored them.
I had the Sea Salt Caramels, Coffee Caramels, Dark Chocolate Caramels and the Coconut Caramels. All of them were divine! If I had to choose my favorites though I would list them in the order I shared them with you just now. …maybe. The first threee are almost a tie, honestly. I liked the coconut too. I wasn’t sure if I should expect shredded coconut or a coconut butter flavor and it’s the latter. Still delicious and is a milder flavor than the others, it’s a great spin on traditional Caramels.

If you have been here for very long, you know how much I love babywearing. I’ve warn both of my babies and I believe in babywearing about as much as breastfeeding. How many of you remember that sweet little photo of B when he was just weeks old?! I can’t wait to have another babe to stick in my Lalabu Soothe Shirt.
Right now, through May 23rd, they are running a crowdfunding campaign to raise awareness for babywearing and its powerful impact. The funds will be used for a brand new product releasing later this year. Right now, they are just over 51% of the way funded and I would love to see them hit their 100% goal by their campaign end date!
The rewards for finding the campaign are current products which means as soon as the campaign ends you’ll get shipped the reward. They have Soothe Shirts like I own, Dad Soothe Shirts and new leggings – they launched both last year. I’m tempted to pick up all three for the next baby because I love the Lalabu brand that much.
Lalabu is also giving away $1,000 to a lucky winner that has shared their campaign. So even if you can’t help fund it, you can share and win. If you have a brand new mom, or a pregnant mom on your Mother’s Day list – go fund this excellent campaign and she will get her new gear at the end of May!
My sweet friend, Julie sent me this awesome journal by Lara Casey. The journal is something I have been eyeing for a while and I cannot wait to start using it. Each day has a place for you to write the date, how you are feeling that day gives you a verse to write, a page to write what’s on your heart and a space for your word of the day. Each journal has a theme and mine is JOY! You can get all of five journals for $99 or you can get one for $22 right here at the Cultivate What Matters Shop!
Beauty Counter’s Charcoal Purifying Mask
Speaking of my friend Julie, she started selling Beauty Counter this year and I can’t wait to get my hands on the Purifying Charcoal Mask. I haven’t personally tried it but it’s on my list to get. The Charcoal mask is $48 but you only need to use it about once a week and the testimonials are excellent. I would imagine it’ll last a good 6+ months. I really like how Beauty Counter’s mission is to get safer, purer products in the hands of everyone. You can check out Beauty Counter through my friend Julie right here.
Starter Kit with Free 15mL of Tangerine from Young Living + a Free Diffuser from ME. Yes, this is another shameless plug for my business but I wouldn’t be sharing if I didn’t know for certain the mom on your list (or you!!) would adore this. Order a Premium Starter kit from me and she will get a diffuser + 11 Oils. For MAY only she will also get a 15mL of Tangerine essential oil from Young Living. THIS WEEK ONLY you (or she) will also get a Free Diffuser from me! I send out a welcome kit with some resources and tools to help any team member’s journey get starter. Anyone that purchases a starter kit from me also gets access to our community and Facebook groups which are full of education. Join us on this Journey!
