This post probably contains affiliate links, to items I am in love with, and I am confident you will too!

I am just a mama with lots of health and fitness knowledge and experience.
Mother’s day is obviously one of my favorite holidays. I am a sun-lover, so as Mother’s Day approaches, I’m usually dying to get outside and enjoy some nice weather. I put together a Mother’s day gift-guide that features some items I love, that are perfect for this summer!
First, I have Bootay Bag. This could really be used all year, but in the summer you are wearing breezy, fun dresses, where some nice undies are more essential. After all, their hasthag, #undermatters is so true! The reason I love this is because it’s affordable, only $12 a month! I can do that, and who likes to shop for undies with kids? For me, going underwear shopping with three munchkins isn’t really the most appealing. They sent me a pair for March to try, and I loved it! The undies are super cute, comfortable and a surprise in the bag! Then, you can also add a bralette for just $1 more dollar! Did you catch that? $13 for two pairs of undies and a bralette! I love following them on Instagram because the photos are super fun!
Okay, next is Honey Moon Hats. I chose the Fiesta, Siesta, Repeat hat because obviously, that’s what I wish my life was (just joking, kinda)! I really think the hats they offer are so fun, and she offers custom hats too! In addition to her hats, there are the cutest tassel earings and totes, which I recommend as well!
Now we have some Pom Pom sandles! These are super fun for summer, and they are perfect for moms because they are flat, easy to run around in, and they add a pop of color to any summer outfit! I ordered myself some as a pre-mother’s day gift. Does that count? I told myself it did. I will have some more pics of them on my Instagram here soon! I thought these were super cute too.
Next, a cute one-piece bathing suit! Here’s the one I have, and I finally jumped on the one-piece bandwagon. I kept seeing such cute suits, so I couldn’t help it! I really like this ruffle one too, which is why I grabbed the photo. Did you know that you can now sign up for Amazon Prime for only $10.99 a month? If you haven’t tried it yet, you should go get a free trial!

I’m on my first month now, to see if we use it. I just bought my suit, sandles and some home items using it, we’ll see how it goes with other items. I am just now getting into online shopping!
Lastly, I have a cute cover up! You can’t make it through summer without one. Seriously, if you don’t like being in your bathing suit, a cover up makes all the difference! They are flowy, forgiving and still cool. I really like colorful one with the pink and blues, and I also linked one similar to mine because I can’t find the exact one. I got it at Marshalls about a year ago, and I have no idea where to get you a link to it!
I have a very specialized program for postpartum mamas looking to heal, nourish and regain their strength. I really struggled healing after my first child, and even went through pelvic floor physical therapy for weeks to manage scar tissue that developed from tearing. I have experience studying nutrition, physical therapy and I taught Pilates, so I’ve put together a program I wish I would’ve followed from the beginning.
A program that first heals your body through specialized movements and nourishing foods. Foods are so essential to your body finding the nutrients it needs to put itself back together again. Your postpartum body needs special care in the first 4-6 weeks where you focus on regaining strength and properly fueling your body for breastfeeding.
Here is what one mama emailed me on the program:
“I absolutely love the program! Just got finished with workout 4 and I’m dying I can only do these 2x thru and my second round is pretty funny to see I’m sure! I will work up to 3x:-) By the way, your little boy angel in the videos is too precious and makes me smile! My boys have been doing these with me as well🏼!
Here is what another mama posted in the Facebook Group:
“Feeling GREAT on this program!!! It’s unbelievable how eating clean makes such a difference. Let me rephrase that…it’s amazing the difference eating nutrient dense foods makes! My skin is glowing and I’m already shedding pounds! I also tried the first workout today and did well although I had to modify a bit and omit the backwards burpee (I had cesarean just over a month ago and don’t quite feel ready for that exercise just yet but I will get there). Loving this plan! Thank you SO MUCH for tour help! Currently eating pictures lunch while writing this ☺”
This program then moves you into gaining physical fitness back. I will never forget the first time I tried to go for a run around 12 weeks postpartum after my first baby. I didn’t do any strength work, so I was literally jelly. I had lost all my extra fat and my previous muscle. So depressing. I was barely able to start gaining it back before I got pregnant and sick again with my second. I’ve learned so much on maintaining muscle postpartum through a unique diet and Pilates routines. I walk you through all of this too!
Lastly, I take you into a workout program to combine with a meal plan to help you lose the baby weight, not your milk!! !
I created this program to be affordable and realistic for new mams!
