*articles may contain affiliate links* The holidays have come and gone, but as you start into 2018, maybe there is someone you forgot to gift and totally meant to. As a busy mom, I get that! There were a few items that I crossed paths with recently which just might fall into the that’s perfect for my friend ___ category or else just work with where you are in your start to the new year. Enjoy!
“Holiday Gift Guide”: What to Get When You Forgot
Here are some items that just might work:
Perfect for: Those getting healthy in 2018. Those who eat too much sugar or dairy and just never feel “good”.
Why: These powders help calm the effects of the typical American diet by bringing the pH balance down. Here’s what intrigued me: “Multiforce contains the perfect combinations of Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium and mineral salts that help reduce the harmful effects of acidity to maintain the perfect pH balance between acid and alkaline. And best of all, Multiforce is effective for a wide range of unrelated symptoms (i.e. indigestion, gout, osteoarthritis, heartburn, urinary issues, exercise recovery, etc.) from one common source – excess acidity.”(I’m not a medical professional but am sharing information provided on the multiforce website. Please consult with a doctor before adding to your lifestyle.)

Flutterby Mascara Shield
Perfect for: Your friends with the gorgeous eyelashes who love their mascara! Busy moms who want to wear makeup and save time.
Why: This shield eliminates the mess that happens when applying mascara (I know it’s not just me or this shield wouldn’t be on the market!). I gave it a try and it FINALLY allowed me to put mascara on my bottom lashes without looking all crazy lady. (No real life pics because I have yet to figure out how to hold things with three hands – trust me that this works!)

Perfect for: The man in your life. The sport-playing kiddos in your life (if they do their own laundry or you trust them with a spray bottle of cleaner in their sport bag). The fit mom in your life (hello!).
Why? With a juniper scent (scent 1), Hero Clean is the solution to all the cleaning products that smell like flowers. This scent is definitely more “manly” but even better, the products are designed to do a deep clean. As a fit mom, I love having the spray for my gym bag and washing my CrossFit and running clothes in the laundry pods (and have raved about it on Instagram). We even do our hand-washed dishes with the detergent! Read more of HERO CLEAN’s story here.
