Just because you’re a busy mom that keeps your eye on balancing the books and keeping the lights on, doesn’t mean that you can’t do a little indulging on yourself, so here are a few super-stylish accessories for mom that keep you in step but don’t require a second mortgage. (And to keep it guilt-free, we’ve made them work for you as a mom too).
LOST CAR KEYS, NO MORE!
We’ve all been there. Making a mad dash for the front door to do the school or shopping run and just as we reach the car, we realize that we don’t have…car keys. Well, the fine folks at Apple have this in hand with their nifty AirTags. They’re perfect for keys but can be tagged to any objects that regularly find themselves undiscoverable.
SLEEP QUALITY MONITOR
If you’ve been worrying about your sleep patterns (who hasn’t) maybe it’s time you started using technology to tell you what’s cooking. Bellabeat has stylish and functional wearable pieces of jewelry that monitor your sleep patterns and track your activity besides – you can’t know where you’re going until you know where you’ve been and sometimes a simple, accessible plan of what you’re already doing activity-wise is a good platform builder to set some goals going forward.
CELL PHONES STYLISH ENOUGH TO WALK A CATWALK WITH
Our phones have become integral parts of managing our lives when you consider how much of the safety of your household depends on you having a device that’s always working sans cracks and nicks, (and who has upwards of $1000 to replace phones lost to falls and drops?), then making sure that your phone is protected is a no-brainer. Check out these cell phone holsters to keep your communication device as good as new, while looking fabulous.
USING YOUR IPAD AS IF IT’S A LAPTOP
Ipads and tablets have given us a whole new way of running our lives. They’re not as cumbersome as laptops, work faster than ever, and now, thanks to this stunning Logitech Combo Touch case, you can use your tablet as if it’s a laptop without the price tag of a new laptop.
KEEPING THE BLUE LIGHT AT BAY
We spend so much of our time looking at screens nowadays, from laptops to tablets, TVs, and cellphones, it’s never-ending. Well, turns out the blue light that many of these devices transmit can be harmful to our eyesight and sleeping patterns, a fact exacerbated by using our devices in bed before sleep. So if you can’t do without your evening ritual of Netflix before bedtime, or those crazy cat videos on YouTube, then you’ll need a pair of blue-light blocking glasses. You can order them on Amazon and good pair should set you back at no more than $100.
We know it’s hard to justify spending on yourself sometimes, especially when that leak doesn’t seem prepared to fix itself, but remember Mama, without you working at full throttle (and safely and efficiently at that), you can’t be there for everyone else. So it’s guilt-free self-investment that also looks great and serves a purpose.
But if you still want to think of getting a little something for the rest of the gang, we’ve made that easy for you too, so go and find some great accessories for mom!
