#NewYearNewMama Giveaway: Maternity shapewear + pregnancy skincare

Here at The Spoiled Mama, we believe  happiness means taking care of yourself — whether that’s hiking with your bestie or binge-watching the last season of “Breaking Bad” over a cup of organic pregnancy tea.

Whatever your idea of bliss is, I think we can all agree that happiness begins with loving the skin you’re in and thriving in your own body — no matter its shape, color or age. Whether you’re a new Mama of twins, trying for your first or welcoming your third, every woman deserves to feel fab-u-lous about herself.

And let’s be real, ladies –sometimes, feeling good requires a lil’ extra maintenance.

That’s why we’re so thrilled to present the #NewYearNewMama Giveaway! We’ve teamed up with intimate apparel company Leonisa to spoil one very lucky mom and help start her year off in style.

Giveaway: Sugar scrub for stretch mark prevention

Happy November, Mamas! With the hectic holidays around the corner, we want to treat THREE lucky moms to a lil’ treat. That’s right, it’s time for another giveaway!

the-spoiled-mama-giveaway-sugar-scrub-pregnancy-skincare-stretch-marks

In addition to Indulge, our signature body polish for stretch mark prevention, our seasoned Spoiled Mamas know we occasionally release limited edition sugar scrubs. This time, we’re proud to present Luscious, a citrus and vanilla body polish that is yum-yum-delicious!

Its warm, inviting vanilla scent and citrus punch reminds us of orange Dreamsicles — a favorite treat from childhood. However, there’s no guilt when you reach for this body polish over and over again: Luscious is a 100% organic sugar scrub made with a special blend of vitamin-rich oils.

Laden with essential fatty acids, the sugar exfoliates, softens and rejuvenates your skin. Every gentle massage increases blood flow to stretch mark prone areas, and add much needed moisture to stressed, stretching skin.

In addition to applying a belly butter to your tummy to prevent pregnancy stretch marks use Luscious body polish to exfoliate and hydrate dry skin during pregnancy.

Luscious is a staff FAVE, and we can’t wait to share its sugary goodness with you!

Here’s your chance to win this body polish for stretch mark prevention for yourself or a friend (remember: this beauty treat is awesome for postpartum or non-expectant women as well).

Good luck Mamas!

#SpreadtheGood: A Gratefulness Project

spread-the-good-pregnancy-skincare-mothers-nonprofit-giving

In the past month, an amazing movement on Twitter has inspired folks all around the globe to pay it forward through kindness and giving. The news of @HiddenCash, an experimental project that involves a secret millionaire stashing $100 bills around town for strangers to find, made a particularly large splash for The Spoiled Mama team since it began in our home of San Francisco.

Now, the not-so-secret real estate developer Jason Buzi is bringing his spirit of giving to other cities, such as Los Angeles, New York City and even Mexico City.

We gals at The Spoiled Mama LOVED the idea behind #HiddenCash, and put our heads together to figure out how we can also give back to our community is a way that is new, exciting for everyone involved.

Introducing…#SPREADTHEGOOD: A GRATEFULNESS PROJECT!

#SpreadtheGood is an easy concept. We give you money. You tell us where to donate that money!

YOU’RE INVITED: Mother’s Day Twitter Party w/ #MomsandBrands

Happy Tuesday, Mamas! Just four days left until Mother’s Day weekend. Between the foot rubs, breakfasts in bed and handmade cards, we hope you can join us Saturday evening for a VERY SPECIAL Mother’s Day event.

Screen Shot 2014-05-06 at 6.14.05 PM

We are so honored and excited  to join #MomsandBrands for one of their legendary Twitter parties! On May 10 beginning at 7 p.m. EDT, The Spoiled Mama is giving away more than $400 in pregnancy skincare prizes in this online scavenger hunt.

We will be pairing up with Meeno Babies Cool Mee seat liners, which are — ahem, super “cool” — products that keep children from overheating in car seats and strollers.

Fellow sponsors, Haba USA toys, Glee Guy natural chewing gum, Montagne Jeunesse beauty masks, Boiron USA homeopathic medicines and all natural Marukan Vinegar, will also be showering Mamas with all sorts of fun prizes and goodies.

“What is #MomsandBrands, and why should I care?”

I’ve always known they throw one heck of a Twitter party, but when I learned about the do-gooder mission behind #MomsandBrands, I was determined to work with them one day.

For more than six years, Kemi Ingram, the founder of #MomsandBrands, has been connecting women with socially responsible brands. Her story begins in 2005 while living abroad in England and working with trafficked women.

Kemi told The Spoiled Mama that working with this vulnerable population made her realize we can change the world simply by investing our money in ethical companies doing good things:

“Working in this capacity and traveling to underdeveloped countries caused me to think deeply about the role my purchasing power (and the collective purchasing power of women) could play in improving the lives of women and children around the world.”

Kemi used her blog — and eventually Twitter — to increase awareness for family-focused brands that produce natural, organic, eco-friendly products.
According to the Mama of three, the effects of environmental degradation (which are often caused by irresponsible manufacturing processes) have a disproportionate impact on poor communities.

What Kemi does — and indeed what all Mamas can do — is selectively choose where her family’s money go:
“Supporting and promoting brands committed to reducing the toxic burden on our bodies allows me to be a part of this work. It is a work that began when I became a mom and nap-time activist seeking out these sorts of products for my own children.
Through her ever-growing social media network, Kemi now hosts Twitter parties that promote and build brand awareness to deserving companies and savvy Mamas. In little more than an hour, her parties reach tens of thousands of moms across the interweb, showering them with fun prizes while educating them as well.

 

“What makes this Mother’s Day Twitter Party different?”

Aside from reaching out to Mamas online, this Saturday’s Twitter Party is going offline as well! A portion of our donation will be delivered to a local crisis pregnancy center to help pamper and spoil women who need it most.

“OK, let me grab my calendar. How do I get involved in this Mother’s Day Twitter Party?”

Attending your first Twitter party is super easy — you won’t even need pants!
