To the Mom who's been to the greatest and the worst of days... Happy Mother's Day!
Mother's Day is just around the corner, and if you're with #TeamLastMinute like me - you will love what I have in-stored for you. Bring forth happiness and love to your special girls, may it be your Mom, Sister, Boss, your Aunt or your Bestfriend... I have listed some of my favorite finds a Mom like myself would really love to receive.
I love having gifts, seriously, who doesn't?! And if you've been to our room, you'll see a lot of my space has been occupied with presents from so many people. Leia and I appreciate gifts small or big, pricey or not, because most of the time "it's the thought that counts". We have shared a lot with you and we'll be sharing so much more this month, not only because it's Mother's Day but it's also Leia's 3rd Birthday.
Lately too, I'm a sucker for things local, handmade by moms and those that are socially responsible. I've been trying my best to advocate change in so many ways. And if you support me on this, you'd be happy to know that below is a rundown of a list of #LeiasMomApproved #LeiasMomRecommended products made for girls by girls who's been raising a bar in making the most of their talents and sharing it to the world. I'ma make this quick because you wouldn't know it but I've got a toddler in my lap while writing this.

7. The Good Store
I always try to be a responsible part of the community and taking part of the zero-waste bandwagon is one of may advocacies. Promoting reusable products and bringing them along with me is one good step in taking care of the environment. I always put in mind that if I won't be of help or a solution, I have to make sure that I won't be an additional problem. Things as simple as bringing EcoBags, using Reusable Straw and buying the Non-toxic Products help!

There goes my Top 10! I'm very sure there's a lot of other brands and products worthy to be on this list, but don't fret... because these are my recommended ones at the moment mainly because since I'm already familiar with their products and the ones behind them. I'm really hoping you're taking something form these. Thank you so much for your time, you make this Momma really happy.
