12 DAYS OF FIT-MAS – FAVORITES TO HAVE UNDER YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE
I LOVE the holidays. I love everything about it – the lights, the music, the smell of a Christmas tree, and more than all of that, the spirit of giving. I am a momma and I am always looking for a good recommendation so I thought why not share some of my favorites with all of you. Now, you will notice that it is heavy on health and fitness and for that I am (not) sorry.
I am big on shopping small and on companies that give back so I tried to have as many as I could on my list this year. I hope you enjoy and maybe find a few new loves for you. (Please note: They are in no particular order. I am obsessed with them all equally.)
ON THE FIRST DAY OF FITMAS MY SWOLEMATE GAVE TO ME: K-DEER CAPRI IN FLEX
Their signature stripes give back, they have a super flattering, high-waist fit and the designs are so much fun. They’re good for the ladies in your life, all ages, shapes and sizes. I may have even purchased a pair for my fairy god-daughter for Christmas . . wink wink.
ON THE SECOND DAY OF FITMAS MY SWOLEMATE GAVE TO ME: THE BE BRAND IN #GIRLBOSS TANK
#mombosses beware! Their shirts are addicting, super comfy, perfect for a Target run or sweat session and the sayings are fun.
ON THE THIRD DAY OF FITMAS MY SWOLEMATE GAVE TO ME: ALEX AND ANI PRINT OF LOVE CHARM BANGLE
These bracelets are fun, you can stack them and if you haven’t noticed this is the start of my favorites that can be dressed up or down! As a mom, that is key to my wardrobe – versatility.
ON THE FOURTH DAY OF FITMAS MY SWOLEMATE GAVE TO ME: KLARA KELLY ANCHOR MAKE-A-WISH HEADBAND SCARF
These headbands truly are no slip for my head as they tie in the back, are washable, have great prints and they even have certain prints that give back.
ON THE FIFTH DAY OF FITMAS MY SWOLEMATE GAVE TO ME: FOOT FACIAL (with deluxe foot massage) FROM MINILUXE
They are health conscience, good to their employees and I always leave there feeling relaxed, and ready to tackle whatever may come in my day.
ON THE SIXTH DAY OF FITMAS MY SWOLEMATE GAVE TO ME: ATOMI PORTABLE CHARGER
I’ve tried a number of portable chargers and with a small child I never want my phone battery to die! This one is slim, roughly $20, holds a charge and connects easily to my phone for a quick boost.
ON THE SEVENTH DAY OF FITMAS MY SWOLEMATE GAVE TO ME: LIVING PROOF DRY SHAMPOO
As a mom, can we please talk about the importance of a great dry shampoo. Since my tiny human became mobile, long showers are a thing of the past. So this bad boy has been a serious lifesaver for keeping me looking fresh!
ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF FITMAS MY SWOLEMATE GAVE TO ME: BLACK CRANE AND LION WRAP SWEATER
As a momma, a good wrap sweater is a necessity. You can dress it up with jeans and heals or down with leggings and sneakers. Plus, this one was the perfect cover for me while breastfeeding.
ON THE NINTH DAY OF FITMAS MY SWOLEMATE GAVE TO ME: HAMILTON BEACH SLOW COOKER (CROCKPOT)
What can I say?! Whether you’re a mom or not, my crockpot is a lifesaver. Create a delicious, home cooked meal in only a fraction of the time by simply throwing in all your ingredients, set it and forget it.
ON THE TENTH DAY OF FITMAS MY SWOLEMATE GAVE TO ME: HIGH COLLAR VEST BY CALIA
I am a sucker for a good vest. Ask my husband, I have about 5 or 6 vests but this one is my go-to. I wear it ALL the time. It’s comfortable, classic design and can be matched well with virtually anything you wear.
ON THE ELEVENTH DAY OF FITMAS MY SWOLEMATE GAVE TO ME: AMAZON ECHO
Running around the house with my tiny human means I am always looking for awesomeness that makes mommin more fun (didn’t think that was possible) and easier. This fun toy fits that bill! There are so many features that I uncover virtually daily but what I use it for most is checking the weather before bundling up my little guy to head out, adding items I may or may not have run out of to my shopping list and cranking some tunes. All done hands-free!
ON THE TWELFTH DAY OF FITMAS MY SWOLEMATE GAVE TO ME: EIGHT OPTICS SUNGLASSES IN VALENTINA
Every women needs a great pair of shades that make you feel sassy and sexy and look great no matter what you’re wearing. Well, that is these sunglasses. They come in a variety of colors which are certain to add a bit of sass to your next selfie.
So close to making the list:
