  • 12 Days of Wellness Giveaway and Giveback (Value $200)

    FYI: The 12 Days of Wellness & Giveback is sponsored by Mommy R+R in partnership with Emma Loewe & Lindsay Kellner, Ami Wellness, and Moorea Seal. I was provided complimentary products for the purpose of this giveaway. All thoughts and opinions are always my own.

    It’s the most hectic time of the year which means it’s holiday time. The season isn’t even in full-swing yet and I’m ready tired and worn out. So I know if I’m feeling like this then you must be too. Which is why I thought this would be a great time to host a wellness giveaway. I haven’t hosted one in a long time so I came out swinging to close 2019 with the ’12 Days of Wellness Giveaway & Giveback’ which is valued at $200!

    The ’12 Days of Wellness’ giveaway with it’s carefully selected wellness-themed products is designed to help you get through the holiday season and beyond. In addition, to the giveaway, I’m also hosting a giveback. The giveback is a mirrored prize for a mom in need within the Mommy R+R community. The recipient of this prize who has already been chosen is going through a really difficult time right now and she really needs your prayers and positive energies. I added this layer onto the giveaway because I wanted her and all the women who follow me to know that I’m always thinking about them and their mental and physical well-being is important to me. I will share the name of this special recipient on Dec 4th when the giveaway winner is chosen.

    What are the prizes in the 12 Days of Wellness Giveaway & Giveback?

    12 days of Wellness mommyrandr

    The prizes for the giveaway and giveback are the exact same. These wellness-based products can be used separately for a few moments of relaxation or in combination for an extended rejuvenating experience. One lucky randomly selected winner and the special pre-chosen giveback recipient will receive:

    The Spirit Almanac: A Modern Guide To Ancient Self-Care by Emma Loewe & Lindsay Kellner

    This book right here – let me tell you, Emma and Lindsay of MindBodyGreen put both of their feet in this book. They beautifully and simply break down rituals that will nourish and empower you through the seasons of life. As soon as you open The Spirit Almanac you will learn about astrology, crystals, essential oils, and meditation. And don’t worry if you don’t know that much about it cause guess what? I don’t either and I still found it easy to follow along.

    My favorite part of the book are the rituals. I’m going to warn you right now get really to be pulled out of your comfort zone cause that’s what’s gonna happen. I’m actually looking forward to the New Year ritual in which I create my own calendar with will center around my astrology sign and instead on hardened new year resolutions, I’ll focus on who I am in the moment and where I want to be going forward. This book is deep and requires your time and attention which is why I thought it would be a perfect addition to this giveaway.

    Ami Wellness Calm Tincture

    Calm Tincture herbal remedy is all about relaxin you from the inside out. Simply put 3 drops of their vegan, all-natural, gluten-free supplement in your drink 3x a day and its ingredients will give you the peace and serenity you deserve. I’ve been adding it to my teas for the past week and I can really tell the difference and because it’s tasteless and odorless I couldn’t even tell it was there. While I may have some stress (I have 2 kids under 10) I’ve noticed I’m not as physically edgy or tension which is great cause I can accomplish more without the strain and drain of stress.

    What’s in the Calm Tincture supplement?
    Fresh California poppy: Helps with sleep and relaxation
    Fresh oat seeds: Eases stress and anxiety
    Fresh pulsatilla: Eases tension, nerve pain, and restlessness
    Rose flowers: Eases stress and anxiety
    Fresh lemon balm: Eases anxiety
    Fresh scullcap: Eases anxiety and tension
    Organic maple syrup: All natural organic sweetener
    Organic peppermint essential oil: Relieves mental fatigue

    52 Lists For Calm by Moorea Seal

    You might recognize this 52 Lists Calm by Moorea Seal from a previous feature as I recently shared my thoughts on her newest list journal. This weekly creative journal makes you slow down and reflect on people, places, and things that are important in your life through prompts. Now while the journal says ‘lists’ that doesn’t mean you have to use this journal in that way. You can get creative and do a collage, use washi and other stickers or even sketch the choice is yours. The ultimate goal of this journal is right in the title – to make YOU calm.

    Calm Club Yoga Deck

    The soothingly scented (yes, scented) Calm club Yoga Deck has one goal – to introduce you to the world of yoga and take you from novice to enthusiast in 52 weeks. The cards show you positions and instruct you on how to position yourself. Now as you move along through the deck you’ll notice each week they will get harder and harder. But you won’t notice this as the transitions are smooth. What makes this deck so great is you can set aside some time in your day to fine-tune that week’s pose. do a stretch. At the end of the month put those 4 cards together and now you’ve created a yoga routine just for you. 

    Earth Therapeutics Anti-Stress Sinus Pillow

    When I’m stressed out and have a headache my lavender-scented weight eye mask comes to the rescue. I place it over my eyes and allow the scents to relax and comfort me. Now, this particular weighted eye mask from Earth Therapeutics is unscented and that’s because not 1. not everyone likes lavender and 2. there is a removable pouch so you’ll be able to make your own in whatever scent and weight you like. The best thing about this mask is you can use it hot or cold. And, unlike some others, this one has an adjustable head strap so it won’t fall off if you doze off.

    Pearlessence Argan + Vitamin E Nourishing Facial Oil

    Anytime someone asks me about my skin and it’s glow I direct them to Pearlessence. I really need you to experience product so I got the Argan + VITAMIN E Nourishing Facial Oil. Winter is coming and the cold air will crack your skin up so you want to make sure you keep it oiled and supple. Now if you’re not familiar with facial oil I need you to know this is not and heavily oily product. All you need are a few drops for complete coverage and you’ll be good to go. I even used it in the summer and I face was still able to breathe. What’s in it? Soybean oil, Aragan oil, Vitamin E, and fragrance – which is light. That’s it.

    The Republic Of Tea Get Relaxed

    Get Relaxed is a caffeine-free, herbal blend that’s pretty much composure in a cup. It has calming aromas of lavender and rose petals. Ahhhh. This brew has a blissful blend of health-promoting organic rooibos laced with nerve-soothing chamomile and passionflower, along with stress-reducing eleuthero root that helps you chill out, unbend and unwind. So you should just probably add it to your bedtime routine cause you’re going to be knocked out.

    La Jolie Muse Candle in Blue Louts Scent

    Scents play a huge part in dictating the mood of your home and this La Jolie Muse candle in Blue Louts is going to help you relax. I can only describe this candle as heavy and light as it has a base of musk and amber but also has bergamot, lemon, and hyacinth for top notes. Now you probably already have a ton of candles but you need this one. Its gonna transform you and your home.

    Azure Rose Gold Face Mask

    This luxury hydrating treatment has a Rose Hip oil that’s going to minimize any skin damage you have. So that breakout you got from your last cycle, say goodbye to those little scars. It’s also going to minimize wrinkles and improve your skin tone – yes and yes! This mask is meant to firm your skin and give it a healthy glow. I’m wearing it right now as I type this and it’s heaven on my face. You’re going to get two masks so you can put your best face forward for the holiday season.

    TheraWell Moisturizing Gel Socks

    If you’re prone to dry feet then treat your tootsies to these moisturizing gel socks. There is a gel lining on the inside of the sock that is infused with essential oils that are going to leave your feet feeling sooo soft – and believe me, you’re going to need to survive all your holiday preparations. You’ll be putting your best feet forward into the new year as you’ll be able to get 40 wears out of these socks.

    Shea Moisture Bath Soak in Coconut & Hibiscus

    I know your bathroom may not feel like the spa BUT this Shea Moisture bath soak is gonna get you close to it. Run a warm or hot bath add the bath soak, and allow the fragrance transport you. The soak is infused with organic coconut oil, shea butter, and botanical extracts. Your body hasn’t felt anything like this and is deserving of this experience.

    Beditations by Latham Thomas

  • Dogipack: The Fur Baby Accessory You Didn’t Know You Needed

    Dogipack was mentioned in the 2017 Mommy R+R Holiday Guide For Moms. This feature is a follow-up to that mention.

    So as well as being a mom of two, I’m also a dog mom. Before my kids were even a thought I got a dog, my baby #1. Lol! Once the kids arrived I realized walking the dog is an actual shit show. Both literally and figuratively.

    Walking the dog is project. You need 8 arms, ninja stealth, and the patience of a true saint. I have come to dread walking my dog, and I have to do it 3 times a day. Then I got my DogiPack.

    Dogipack mommyrandr valerie pierre

    This nifty little dog walking utility belt comes equipped with five pockets that will hold: your phone, portable dog bowl (included), water bottle, poop bag dispenser, and a dog treat pouch. It snaps around your waist freeing up my hands to hold my daughters hand, push my stroller, or tend to either one of the kids.

  • Snack Time with Daelmans Stroopwafels

    Daelmans Stroopwafels was mentioned in the 2017 Mommy R+R Holiday Guide For Moms. This feature is a follow-up to that mention.

    If there is one thing that I can share about myself is, I love me a good snack. Cookies, cakes, ice cream, you name it, I will eat it. I’m always looking for a new snack to indulge in and my newest indulgence is Daelmans Stroopwafels.  

    Daelmans Stroopwafels is a sweet, thin waffle cookie with a delicious soft caramel center that warms up when you place it over a hot cup of tea or coffee.

    Daelmans Stroopwafels valerie pierre mommyrandr

    It tastes AMAZING!! Dunk’em, scarf’em down, or savor them bite by bite – you can’t go wrong. But wait, I took it a step further and tried them with ice cream and let me tell you…I’m addicted. I had to stop myself from opening the other two packs I had. I couldn’t stop eating them!!

    Daelmans Stroopwafels valerie pierre mommyrandr

    I’ve since eaten all of them and now I’m sad til I get more.

    Daelmans Stroopwafels are a great gift option for the foodies in your life. Or just a snack to keep at home in your pantry. Me and my daughter ate a whole box in a day, so I give it my stamp of approval as a snack for the whole family.

    Flavors & Where To Buy?

    Daelmans Stroopwafels come in a variety of flavors Honey, Caramel, and Chocolate-Caramel. And can be purchased in the US Cost Plus World Market and Peters Gourmet Market. The retail price for the cube box is $4.99. The duo-pack retails for $1.79. Stroopwafels can also be found locally at Cost Plus World Market, TJMaxx, Home Goods, 7-Eleven and Walgreens (the duo packs), and you can also find them at Barnes & Noble Starbucks Cafes.

    Share in the comments which ones you’re gonna try, and if you’ve had these before I definitely wanna hear from you. Happy snacking!
