May is finally here! The sun is shining, flowers are blooming and it’s time to celebrate Her Health Month! Y’all know that I’m a big proponent of self-care and taking time for yourself. As moms, we continuously give to those around us and sometimes forget to take care of ourselves in the process. It’s easy at first when things are constantly go-go-go and then one day it’s not. One day you finally stop for a moment and realize you’re running on fumes.
You can’t pour from an empty cup. Take care of yourself first.
Constantly giving without filling your own cup leads to frustration, breakdown and burnout. Taking the time to show yourself a little self-love is absolutely necessary for maintaining a healthy and balanced life. Remember to do a little self-check now and then and check how full your cup is. Do you need to nourish yourself more so you can take care of those around you? Fill your cup with those things that light your fire, recharge and inspire!
Self-care is not selfish, it’s necessary.
I’m excited to share a few of my favorite self-care, fitness and health inspired products that I’ve been loving on lately! These products have been making self-care just a little more fun and enjoyable so I can get the most our of my “me-time”.
Zenni UV Blue Blockers Glasses
I spend a lot of time at my computer so these glasses have become a must! The UV glasses from Zenni have clear lens that block that harmful effects of HEV (high-energy visible) blue light and provides maximum UV protection with minimal color distortion. Too much blue light can cause eye strain which leads to headaches, tired eyes and blurry vision which are definitely bummers.
They have a ton of super cute styles too (loving on the Sullivan)! Adding a little style while protecting your eyes is always a good thing!
The team at Zenni’s is being amazing and giving away a FREE pair of glasses (UV blockers, prescription or sunglasses) so make sure to enter at the end of this post!
Aftershokz Trekz Air Headphones
I absolutely love the concept of these open ear headphones from Aftershokz! The Trekz Air are super lightweight bud-free and comfortable headphones. While I love listening to music while running, I hated buds because they were uncomfortable and dangerous since you can’t hear your surroundings. Aftershokz Trekz Air are perfect because the bone conduction technology delivers music through your cheekbones which allows your ear to remain open to hear your surroundings. Pretty, cool right?!
My readers can save $30 off Trekz Air until June 30th with the code: AMBER30
Chesapeake Bay Candle: Mind & Body
The natural soy wax candles from Chesapeake Bay Candle are favorites in our home. I’m loving the newest Mind & Body collection and especially the Balance + Harmony blend. This candle is a blend of tropical scents with notes of pear, peach and apple. I love lighting it to take a long relaxing bath with a good book at the end of a hectic day.
Pure Synergy Organic Beet Juice Powder & Turmeric Extract
I’m loving the newest trend of all the fruit and veggie powders and I’m hooked on Pure Synergy Organic Beet Powder. Beets are powerhouses when it comes to nutrients (great for detoxification, inflammation and muscle stamina) and this powder makes it so easy to add a little wellness into your everyday routine. I love adding a scoop of beet powder into my smoothies (I sneak it into my kiddos smoothies too and they’d never know that I’m squeezing in some extra nutrients).
Pure Synergy also has a Turmeric Extract which is great option for post-workout to help the healing of inflamed muscles or aches as well.

Champion Absolute Mesh Sports Bra
I’m kind of an athletic gear fanatic so I love finding new styles to wear! This compression sports bra from Champion is quick drying and wicks moisture away for a more comfortable wear. The moderate support has been great for yoga classes to keep everything under control and comfortable without restricting movement.
The Myth Of A Nice Girl
There’s nothing I love more than getting absorbed into a book and The Myth Of A Nice Girl by Fran Hauser has got my attention! I love reading about another women’s perspective and experience in the workplace culture. She shares how to bypass all the negative perceptions that women sometimes face in the workplace (such as being too nice and being seen as weak or being too tough and being labeled a bitch) while still maintaining your values and finding the right balance to navigate and succeed in the workplace. I’m definitely excited to read more into it and hopefully take away some kickass pointers to take my career to the next level.
Are you remembering to fill your own cup? If you had an hour to spare for self-care today what would you do?
