We’re a new generation of moms that are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to pave our own path for motherhood. Though that path is not always easy or clear to navigate. Whether you are a stay at home mom, working full time, starting your own business, or something in between, you deserve praise every day. You are all inspiring in your own way. Keep it up mamas.
In honor of Mother’s Day I’ve partnered with six amazing brands for a giveaway that will spoil one lucky mama– Little Poppy Co, KB Cute Designs, Madeline’s Box, Bump Club and Beyond, Mama and Little, and Chime by Sitter City. Each of these brands were selected because they were essential to helping me get through my daughter’s first year. Even better, they were each founded by some pretty inspiring mamas. Each of these moms have crafted a beautiful version for motherhood that works for them. I’m honored to feature them in this giveaway and also hear their advice on the following question:
“What is your best morsel of advice for balancing your role as mom and founder?”
Lindie and Becca, Little Poppy Co
Lindie and Becca are sister’s-in-law and the mama duo behind the adorable bow subscription service, Little Poppy Co. If you have a little girl and don’t want to spend a TON of money on sweet bows, then a subscription to Little Poppy Co’s is a must– $11.95 a month for 3 handmade bows. My daughter Leslie has been wearing their bows since October and we absolutely love them. Needless to say, I am giddy when I see their little pink package in my mailbox!
For our Inspiring Moms Giveaway, Little Poppy Co is giving away one 3-month bow subscription. That is nine adorable handmade bows. Hooray!
Kerri Blaser, KB Cute Designs
One of the things I learned when my daughter was born is there is no such thing as too many swaddle blankets. There are so many options out there, but none quite as adorable as the handmade creations from KB Cute Designs. The mama, designer and owner, Kerri Blaser, hand-makes everything from swaddles to quilts to crib sheets and more. All of her fabrics are handpicked, and if you ask me, the vintage floral options are irresistible. I’m just in love with her creations and can’t say enough about the quality. If you are looking for something unique for your little boy or girls room, KB Cute Designs is the place to look!
For our Inspiring Moms Giveaway, KB Cute Designs is giving away a $50 store credit.
Heather Ferguson, Madeline’s Box
I’ll admit it, before my daughter was born I SWORE I would NEVER let my baby have a pacifier. Fast forward 16 months and “Mr. Binks” is my daughter’s fifth appendage. When the realization came that I needed to physically attach Mr. Binks to my daughter, I was so disappointed with the options available. Alas, I found Madeline’s Box. The founder and designer, Heather Ferguson, had the same struggle when her son was born and did something about it. Madeline’s Box was one of the first to offer stylish and handmade leather braided pacifier clips. The are simple, beyond adorable, and come in so many colors. A must-have for your little babe!
For the Inspiring Moms Giveaway, Madeline’s Box is giving away a 3-pack of leather braided pacifier clips. Bonus, you get to choose the colors!
Lindsay Pinchuck, Bump Club and Beyond
One of the biggest changes a woman can go through in her life is becoming a mother. Everything changes, and it changes quickly. Preparing for, having and raising children is one of the most incredible stages in life. But it is also one of the hardest. Us moms and moms-to-be need a community of other moms to lean on. When I was pregnant with my daughter a friend introduced me to Bump Club and Beyond. Founded by Lindsay Pinchuck when she was only 8 weeks pregnant Bump Club and Beyond’s mission is to connect the moms and moms-to-be with the best products, resources, experts and most importantly, with each other. Joining this community is a must for any new or expecting mama-to-be!
For the Inspiring Moms Giveaway, Bump Club and Beyond is giving you a chance to get away and be pampered with a Box of 3 Blowouts from DryBar. What mama doesn’t love having someone else do her hair for once?!
Arleene Taylor, Mama and Little
We’ve all heard the horror stories about teething. When my daughter’s first tooth starting cutting I made a mad dash to the store to buy her teething beads to chew on. Just a day later I found one of the beads rolling across the floor [insert a massive state of mama panic]! After a quick online search for “safe teething beads” I found Mama and Little’s stylish teething bead necklaces. Mama and Little was founded by Arleene Taylor and her husband soon after their son was born. I absolutely love Arleen’s designs because only are they durable and safe for my daughter, the styles are something you can wear all the time. Bonus, my daughter absolutely loves chewing on them!
For the Inspiring Moms Giveaway, Mama and Little is giving away a $50 store credit. You get to pick your favorite chew-friendly and stylish bauble!
Genevieve Thiers, Chime by Sitter City
Have you ever made plans with friends and completely spaced booking a sitter? Have an amazing date night planned to only have your childcare cancel on you that same day? Called every sitter in your phone with no luck? In my first year as a mom all of these things happened to me. Thankfully I found Chime by Sitter City. Think of it as the Uber for childcare. Chime is an on-demand childcare app that makes it easy to find a trusted sitter at the last minute. You literally just need to enter the your time and date, and the app will recommend three pre-screened sitters in your area. Book and pay directly through the app. Hellooooo date night! The founder, Genevieve Thiers is a mom to twins and an opera singer to-boot. As a new entrepreneur and woman in tech, Genevieve is truly someone I aspire to be!
