A peek inside!
An info card revealed this month’s theme — Thrive — and listed all of the items with brief descriptions and retail values for each one.
May’s featured book was wrapped in black tissue paper.
Breathe Mama Breathe: 5-Minute Mindfulness for Busy Moms by Shonda Moralis ($14.95 Retail, $12.07 Amazon)
This award-winning book was written specifically for busy moms. It focuses on the importance of giving yourself a little “me time” and investing in your own well-being — even if it’s just for 5 minutes a day. 😉
Moms can feel as if they are sprinting through life, crashing onto the pillow at day’s end only to start again the next morning. In Breathe, Mama, Breathe, psychotherapist Shonda Moralis outlines the benefits of daily meditation and shows moms how to do it—in just five minutes! Plus, she shares over 60 “mindful breaks” that will help moms tune into their own well-being (along with everyone else’s):
- Eat a mindful breakfast—with no phone, TV, or newspaper!
- Cuddle your child and take three deep breaths together.
- Give yourself a mindful-mommy high five—because moms can use positive reinforcement, too.
Every mom—whether caring for a new baby, an over scheduled grade-schooler, or an angsty teen—can become a mindful mama!
I’ve been feeling fairly overwhelmed lately, so I’ll certainly be taking the time to read through this book.
Moi Candles are available exclusively to Oxford Momma. This one features an awesome grapefruit scent and has a burn time of 45-60 hours. It’s made of hand-poured soy wax and smells absolutely wonderful. — I’m a sucker for any kind of citrus scent and this one doesn’t NOT disappoint.
This 3-ounce bath bomb is packed with skin-nourishing ingredients like kaolin clay, a detoxifier that helps remove excess dirt and oil from your skin. It also includes fair trade cocoa and shea butters for extra hydration and smoothness. It’s infused with orange peel oil and rose flower extract for a light, natural fragrance.
Spinster Sisters Pure Lip Balm ($4.75)
An all natural lip balm created with beeswax, coconut oil, and other lip-softening ingredients. It’s sulfate, phthalate, and paraben free, promising to leave your skin feeling moisturized with no waxy build-up.
Art Print & Postcard ($3)
Every Oxford Momma box comes with an inspirational print that can be framed or sent to a fellow mom who could use a little encouragement. May’s print reads: “She made a promise to herself to hold her own well-being sacred”.
Every box also includes additional inspirational items like stickers and the bookmark above, which coordinates with the art print.
I really enjoyed my first Oxford Momma experience! The book will serve as a good reminder for me to slow down and take a little “me time” — that is, if I can find the time to read it. 😉 I absolutely LOVE the grapefruit scented soy candle and look forward to taking a relaxing soak with the fragrant bath bomb. 😀 — Remember, for a limited time, you can save $3 on your first box with coupon code “FALLINLOVE“!
