Mother’s Day is right around the corner with Father’s Day not far behind. Summer vacations, holidays, birthdays, kids out of school for the summer, and organizing babysitters/day cares and work keep you busy. This is why I want to share some of my favorite local vendors for a day of pampering for you moms out there!
Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
I think moms have the hardest, most thankless job in the world and deserve to have more than one day of the year devoted to them. Since that’s not really feasible unless you are one of those lucky few, I’ve curated a few awesome options in St. Louis for your special day. I hope you get a chance to take advantage of one of these at the very least!
Boudoir Session with Boudoir by Tracy Lynn
We all knew this would be my number one choice, right? Not only is a boudoir session a day of pampering and feeling like the most beautiful woman in the world, I will also guarantee you leave with your confidence levels at an all time high. See more about loving yourself, feeling beautiful, and confidence levels in this post. On top of that, if we photograph your session around mothers day, father’s day is right around the corner, so this is literally a gift for you and a gift for him! I’d call this a win-win!
The Four Seasons Hotel Spa. So I have always wanted to go to this spa but haven’t made time. They have a Bissinger’s Chocolate Spa Treatment, which sold me with that name. The spa uses the cacao to exfoliate and then use cocoa butter to moisturize, plus you get to leave smelling like the Caramel Room, which is reason enough for me.
If you aren’t interested in the chocolate experience, regular spa treatments, massages, manicures, pedicures, and facials are also offered.
My girls at the Blowout Bar can give you a gorgeous makeover to feel like the beautiful woman you are on Mother’s Day. They are the best at what they do, so this is who I send all of my clients to prior to their session! You can sit back, relax, and enjoy a glass of champagne while they treat you as royalty.
A few weeks ago, I blogged about lash extensions with Splash Beauty. Long, luxurious lashes make you feel your best even on a bad day, which is the perfect Mother’s Day gift. You spend enough time helping your family look/feel their best, so this is perfect way to treat yourself. It’s amazing how a set of lashes can make you feel.
Weight Loss Coaching
Gillian Becker(@stl_momshell on instagram) of momshells.com is the best weight loss coach in St. Louis (and possibly the country). Many of her ladies have far surpassed their goals and have even competed in fitness competitions. Her clients are women of all ages, many of whom are mom’s just looking to lose some baby weight. Most end up competing in fitness competitions and winning/placing with her coaching, and Brooke(below) is one of her many girls. You can find out more about her coaching by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pole Dancing Fitness Party
Pink Lemon Studio in O’Fallon, MO is a pole dancing fitness studio. If you are looking for a girls day out with your girlfriends, this is the most fun thing you could do! Jennifer (the beauty below) is the owner/instructor and will show you the basics and let you have a blast! Just know that you are going to be so sore the next day, which will give you the perfect excuse to visit the Four Seasons for a spa day!
I hope this gave you some ideas on how to pamper yourself. You work so hard all year, so you deserve to treat yourself well at least one day(or all week) of the year. 🙂
