After last year, many of us moms are welcoming going back to school- in school- with open arms. So, it got me thinking: while we’re buying #2 pencils and markers, we deserve some pampering of our own… right?! Here are 7 things I’m loving right now.

Bobbe Active

Topping my fall to-do list: making me a priority, and by that, I mean putting my health first. I want to set a good example for my kids, showing them their after-school sports are important… but mama can play some games, too. After taking a 20+ year break from tennis, a handful of mom friends and I are taking lessons… and loving it. And to be quite honest, I’m also loving the gear.

Bobbe Active is a LA-based company that makes the cutest tennis outfits- adorable skirts paired with flattering tanks and long sleeves.

My picks:

· The black and white swish skort crackled ice paired with the “It’s Hot in Here” black tank.

· The Layer Cake Skort paired with the Grace ½ Zip Top.

· And the Metallic “Cute as a Bunny” Navy Skort paired with the Baby Doll Top.

All Bobbe items are made from super soft, movable, and comfortable material making you look A-list on the court.

PATH Water

Sick of your car collecting empty plastic water bottles? Yeah, me too.

Another thing on my get-healthy to do list: drink more water. And for that, I’ve started drinking PATH. The convenient, reusable, environmentally friendly water bottles are made to refill, and even keeps your H2O cooler than the alternative. Produced in the USA, it’s the leading sustainable water brand prioritizing alternative solutions to help everyone break the addiction to single-use plastic bottled water.

With proper care, you can use your aluminum water bottle for years. Plus, PATH water is fresh and refreshing, and the bottles are designed with a BPA free liner so you can drink your daily water count worry free.

A Hammered Stacked Ring

I’ve done my fair share of back-to-school shopping for my boys- revamping their closet with plenty of new gear. To reward our hard work, us moms deserve something special and I’m all about Starlette Galleria’s Hammered Ring (lovely and under $100).
Starlette Galleria

This staple piece is made of high-quality, durable metals that won’t tarnish or turn your finger green. The genuine sterling silver ring flaunts a pop of rose gold in the middle, making it a stunning wear-everyday-type piece. Put it on your thumb, middle, or ring finger- totally diverse! Note: if you’re between sizes, size up because the band-width makes it feel a tad snug.

TAO Clean

The summer sun, heat and dryness has taken a toll on my skin, so I’m adopting a new routine: a skincare regime with TAO Clean. Bid farewell to washcloths (that often harbor bacteria from being left on the counter)… TAO is a great solution for getting your skin back on track.

The TAO Clean Orbital Facial Brush comfortably cleanses and gently exfoliates using powerful rotational technology more capable than manual washing. Its spinning motion, combined with the silky soft bristles, thoroughly sweep through pores to safely dislodge dirt, dead skin cells and make-up residue. The base station keeps the brush head protected, clean and away from environmental contaminants and dries the brush head while charging. The best part: the dock’s built-in Halo Lamp kills 99.9% of germs and pathogens with UV-C light.

Maria Victoria

No fall outfit is complete without the perfect handbag, right? Maria Victoria offers a darling hand-woven collection to fit your vibrant vibe. The unique line is expertly handcrafted by dedicated Mexican artisans, creating pieces that speak to their heritage. Authentically beautiful and created with fair trade opportunities, feel good supporting the outstanding work of these artists, all made from durable PVC materials. The bags are super versatile, great for the gym, school, travel, or everyday use.

My pick: the Sisqueiros in black.

Intelligent Threads

Get ready for this, mama: magical leggings… do I have your attention??

Intelligent threads offer the ultimate relaxer yoga pants infused with superpowers. In fact, their innovative design is proven to restore blood flow and eliminate soreness, as well as help improve posture, relax muscles, and prevent injuries.

There are many ways to get your muscles sore like sleeping wrong or sitting in an office chair for hours. We use our bodies for everything, and many of us battle continued discomfort due to tightness. By wearing Intelligent Threads, you’re gifting your body clothing that does the work for you- and while the leggings are pricey, it’s an investment you can wear often and feel great in.

Eco Lips

Treat your chapped lips to the first organic lip balm on the market- Eco Lips. Truly eco-conscious, their USDA certified organic facility is powered by renewable energy and solar energy. The company sources all their ingredients sustainably and ethically from trusted sources around the globe. Their products are Fair Trade Certified™, Non-GMO Project Verified, Leaping Bunny Certified, and gluten-free.

In addition to an array of sticks to choose from, my lips are loving the brown sugar scrub.
