The Spoiled Mama loves Covet Boutique + GIVEAWAY

Screen Shot 2013-08-23 at 8.36.30 AM

One of the reasons why I love having our blog is that it’s such a useful tool to share pregnancy info and Spoiled Mama news…but it’s also a great platform to share with y’all some of my favorite things!

As an independent woman business owner, I think it’s important to seek out similar women-operated businesses and support them. So this week I want to share with you one of my favorite independent shops in San Francisco: Covet Boutique.

Covet, which began in 2009, is run by Atlanta-raised Adrienne Wiley. She just opened her third location in San Francisco (congrats!), and launched an online store that is full of great maternity and pregnancy gift ideas!

What makes Covet stand out from other boutiques are the beautiful handmade jewelry made in Adrienne’s San Francisco studio, the handpicked selection of clothes and vegan handbags from Los Angeles, Canada and even Spain. If you want effortless — and affordable — style, this is the shop to go to, ladies!

Adrienne knows how we love to spoil our Mamas, so she’s been kind enough to sponsor a $50 gift certificate to CovetSF.com for one lucky Mama!

What can you put that gift certificate towards? Here are some of my fave picks:

1) The Dee Co-Lab Nylon Satchel, $87

colab satchel

This new fall 2013 satchel comes from Canadian designer Christopher Kon. I love the roomie bag (approx. 12x7x11″), which can be carried by handles or a detachable, adjustable long, wide strap. As a busy Mama, you know I need my versatility! It also comes with two side zippers that open up to even more compartments.

Plus, the nylon fabric is great for all kinds of weather…or milk spills and spit up.

2) The Monterey Maxi, assorted colors – $48

grey maxi skirt

 

Whether you’re pregnant, losing the baby weight or super fit, the maxi skirt is flattering on most body types. The skirt features a foldover top that can be adjusted for the perfect fit. According to Adrienne, preggo Mamas flock to her boutiques to load up on these stretchy skirts that grow with your belly. Aside from being crazy comfortable, they’ll free you from nine months of dumpy sweat pants and boring leggings.

Pair with a tank on warm days, or layer up with your favorite sweater or cardigan during the fall. (Check out our maternity style Pinterest board Pokies for more ideas on how to sport your maxi!)

3) Personalized Initial Necklaces, starting at $49

According to Adrienne, this is the #1 gift at her store. These best-sellers are simple, elegant, and easy to wear everyday. The initials come in gold vermeil or sterling silver, and are worn on an 18″ gold-filled or sterling chain. If you want to make it unique, add $12 for additional initials for your babe or a Swarovski crystal charm for his/her birth month!

4) OKA b. Ballet Flats, starting at $45

Screen Shot 2013-08-23 at 8.24.41 AM

Whether you like ‘em embellished or plain, OKA b. rubber ballet flats will ensure your feet look good and feel good. Named the Huffington Post’s best shoes of fall 2013, I’m unsure where to begin with these babies! Made in the U.S.A, they’re recyclable, machine washable and antimicrobial.

With soft bedding for arch support and anti-slip soles, they are perfect for chasing your little ones indoors and out.

5) Papaya! Large Accessory Pouch, assorted designs – $34

Whether you’re headed to doctor’s appointments, leaving on your babymoon or taxi-ing the kids from school to soccer, every Mama needs a bag like this. This large accessory pouch comes in assorted fun designs, and can carry all your essentials at 14x9x2″. It’s large enough to tote around important documents, makeup or beauty tools for a trip, but cute enough that you’ll want to flash it around on your errands.

Each bag is made from durable oil-cloth, which means it can withstand unfortunate spills and other accidents.

So now that you see how I’d use my $50, how will you?

World Breastfeeding Week + Giveaway

Happy World Breastfeeding Week, Mamas!

BQrbNOZCcAALbkt

The annual weeklong celebration is held August 1-7, and brings awareness to issues facing nursing moms. This year’s theme is “Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers,” and aims to rally support for “a mother’s decision to breastfeed and have a positive breastfeeding experience” through her peers.

The Five Circles of Support are: 1) family and social network, 2) healthcare, 3) workplace and employment, 4) government/legislation and 5) response to crisis or emergency.

While we support Mamas who choose formula, there is proof that nursing is beneficial for your babe in many ways.

According to a statement from UNICEF:

“Science has repeatedly demonstrated the great advantages of breastfeeding, which not only provides nutrients critical to a child’s health in the earliest days, but also prevents infectious diseases and reduces the risk of long-term chronic conditions, such as obesity.”

And while data shows more Mamas are trying to breastfeed and are nursing longer, according to a 2011 surgeon’s general report, many parents still don’t realize that breast milk remains better for babies than formula.

In fact, many hospitals have been criticized for sabotaging a Mama’s efforts to breastfeed. One-quarter of hospitals and birth centers give at least live sex vidios half of newborns formula, and almost three-quarters include formula in their “welcome packs.”

While there are clearly many laws and societal attitudes that need to change about breastfeeding, we hope that every nursing Mama stays strong and continues nursing for as long as she can!

In honor of World Breastfeeding Week, we are excited to give away a couple of The Spoiled Mama’s bestselling, organic breastfeeding products!

Screen Shot 2013-08-02 at 12.44.58 PM

The prize includes our popular Fix that Sucker Nipstick, a nipple butter that helps heal sore, cracked nipples, and More Milk Please Sippin’ Tea, an organic breastfeeding tea to increase breastmilk.

As always, our products are toxin-free and safe for Mama and babe — even the nipple cream is safe for baby to consume!

To win this breastfeeding kit, please fill out the Rafflecopter below:

The fine details: Giveaway runs through Saturday, August 10, 2013 at 12 a.m. PDT. No purchase necessary. Winner will be chosen randomly and have 72 hours to claim prize once contacted via email. Please allow 3-6 weeks for delivery. Contest is open to Mamas in the contiguous U.S. only (our apologies to Mamas in Alaska, Hawaii and overseas!). The gift value ($34) includes shipping.

Pregnancy gift set giveaway: The Bump Box Sampler

TGIF, Mamas! I hope you’re gearing up for an awesome Father’s Day weekend, and just to make it a little more awesome…it’s GIVEAWAY time!

We’ve been busy revamping our popular pregnancy gift sets, and I am so excited to present the new Best of Bump Box sampler:

pregnancy gift sets

The Bump Box Sampler ($21) has always been a favorite pregnancy gift set for Mamas who need a little pampering and want to try The Spoiled Mama for the first time. Launched last week, the new sampler includes:

  • .5 oz Tummy Butter
  • 1 oz Bump Gloss
  • 1 oz Cucumber & Aloe Leg Gel — NEW!
  • 10% Spoiled Mama discount towards a future purchase

How to use:

Tummy Butter, our pregnancy stretch mark cream, is made with lush cocoa butter and infused with organic oils rich with healing vitamin A and E. Apply twice a day (morning and evening) on areas that are beginning to grow and stretch, such as your belly and thighs.

I recommend Tummy Butter for expecting Mamas as a preventative measure, but for postpartum moms it will help reduce the appearance of new stretch marks and C-section scars as well!

Bump Gloss, an organic stretch mark oil, is rich in antioxidants and collagen-building ingredients. Its wonderfully soothing lavender aroma is great for expecting Mamas who are sensitive to stong smells.

To use, I recommend applying Bump Gloss over growing areas of your body after your daily shower. Make sure your skin is slightly damp to help the oil absorb and lock in moisture. Wait for the Bump Gloss to dry before putting on clothes.

The NEW Aloe & Cucumber Leg Gel is now more effective than ever! We’ve added healing cucumber and spirulina to help better cure swollen legs and feet caused by pregnancy.

The swelling, known as edema, usually occurs in pregnant women during their third trimester. When you need some relief, just apply this ultra soothing concoction on the affected areas. Leave as a mask for 15 minutes and wash off.

PRO-TIPS:

1) Be sure to gently massage both the Tummy Butter and Bump Gloss into your skin to help increase circulation and elasticity of your stretching skin.

2) For maximum stretch mark prevention, we recommend you use both products in conjunction and begin the regimen as soon you find out you’re expecting. (Preventative measures are the best medicine!)

3) For a delightful summer treat, leave your Aloe & Cucumber leg gel in the fridge to chill before applying.

1) Using Rafflecopter, answer the question “What’s you favorite part of being a Mama?” in our comments below. Earn multiple entries by filling out the rest of the Rafflecopter fields.
