I am soooo excited to show you our brand new t-shirts for our community here at The Better Mom!! I have been wanting to do this for awhile now and alas here they are…. Let’s wear them with pride my friends!!!

When your tee/tees come in the mail take a picture of yourself wearing your tee and tag The Better Mom on Facebook (@thebettermom) , Instagram (@ruthschwenk), or Twitter (@thebettermom) and hashtag #momtees!

Im-not-just-a-mom

This is my favorite one!!! I LOVE it! Being a mom isnt about your place in life right now; its about your purpose in life. There is no such thing as “just” a mom! Click here to purchase the I’m Not Just a Mom tee.

Raising-Arrows

You are raising and releasing weapons of life, joy, truth, and light. Dont just raise kids; raise arrows! Psalm 127:3-5 says, “Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him. Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warriors hands. How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them! He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates.” Click here to purchase the Raising Arrows tee.

I-Love-Being-A-Mom

No shame, so shout it out! I LOVE being a mom! Click here to purchase the I Love Being a Mom tee.

So which one is your favorite that you are going to order?? And…what are some other quotes for our future designs that you would love to see on a tee??

Blessings,

Ruth Schwenk

Thank you thank you thank you to my friend Kathleen Miller who designed these beauties for us!!

How You Can Have Your Own Personal Stylist

I have shared this little secret with you before but for those of you who weren’t around when I first shared it….

You can have your own personal stylist…and yes I am serious

For those of you who have not heard of StitchFix let me introduce you to my new “best friend”. ;)

Over the holidays Stitch Fix sponsored a fun party for me and my friends!

So you may be wondering:

What is Stitch Fix?

Stitch Fix is a service where you are assigned your own personal stylist who chooses clothing, jewelry, and even cute bags/purses for you.  When you sign up, you fill out a style profile so that your stylist has an idea of what you like to wear. After you select the first date you would like your fix, you will receive 5 items in the mail (in a cute box :)). You are not obligated to purchase any of them, but you are charged a $20 styling fee. This $20 is refunded if you purchase any one item. I LOVE that with each piece of clothing they include a card that gives you ideas on how to style that particular piece. Once you try your items on, select what you would like to keep and then return the rest in a pre-paid envelope.

So if you find yourself wanting to try new styles and could use a little help from a stylist you will LOVE Stitch Fix!!!

Overall I love the variety of the items they send me.  I have learned it is best to be specific if you are hoping to get certain items in your fix. For example, I have asked for a Maxi Dress, a big slouchy bag, and a cute jacket and loved all of them!!

Recently I was with my friends Karen and Courtney at the Women Living Well Conference and they insisted that I share my “vintage hair” with you. Now I am no expert, but I do have to say that using the “sock bun” method is about the easiest way to have a quick hair-do for all of us busy mamas!
