Back to School Mom Style

For many of you, your children will be headed back to the schoolhouse for the first time in months. That first day back will be met with a mix of emotions for both you and your children. On one hand, you are excited to get back to some sort of normal routine but on the other, you are also anxious about the unknown. We feel you completely and have some recommendations for getting Back to School Mom Style!

Breakfast with the Ladies

First things first- start your day off with breakfast with your closest gal pals. Meet up at Another Broken Egg Cafe and enjoy a leisurely breakfast of great food and conversation. We guarantee that one look at the menu and you will be drooling. Why not start with an ABE Famous Infused Mary or Peach Bellini? And be sure to add the Biscuit Beignets for the whole table to enjoy. Now, that you are starting to unwind a bit, it is time for the main course. We recommend the Smoked Salmon Benedict, Huevos Rancheros, or the Cinnamon Roll French Toast but you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. We think you will agree that this may just need to be a weekly meet-up for you and your friends!

Hello Gorgeous!

There is just something about going to the hair salon that makes you feel spectacular. It can be as easy as a root touch-up and trim to something more drastic like a change of color or trying that cute new hairstyle you have been dying to try. Plus, that feeling of having your hair washed is just a whole new level of awesomeness. If you have not had the chance to try out Level 10 Salon then this is the time. The colorists and stylists are extremely talented and knowledgable and will have your locks looking superb. Your kids might not even recognize you by the end of the day! While you are there, invest in some quality care products that will keep your hair in top-notch shape in-between visits. We love the Unite line that Level 10 is now carrying and you can never go wrong with Oribe.

Retail Therapy

A little retail therapy is good for the soul and shopping with friends is even better. If you are anything like all the moms we know, you probably spend most of your time and money making sure that the kids looked great for back to school. Well, now it is time to make sure that you look great as well and there is no better time to start. The stores are busy putting out the latest fall fashions. We know that you are thinking that it is still as hot as the sun here in Florida. That is true, so you will be able to scoop up some killer deals on summer fashion. If you have not been to All Dressed Up Boutique, Blu Spero, or Lizard Thicket then do not miss stopping in these stores. These are trendy and chic boutiques that will have you looking your best in no time with their cute tops and dresses and all at prices that will not break the bank.

Bring the Relaxation Home

Don’t let your day of relaxation end once you leave the parking lot at Destin Commons. Stop by Sephora or Lush and bring some relaxing bath goodies home to enjoy. A bath bomb from Lush is always the perfect way to unwind after a hectic day. We personally love to bring out our inner goddess with the appropriately named Goddess bath bomb, a glorious blend of jasmine, rose, and oudh oil. Sometimes though you simply do not have time to lounge in a relaxing bath, so it is nice to have a luxurious shower gel and matching lotion. We love Fresh products due to their delicious scents and nourishing properties. Sugar Lemon is our absolute favorite!

We wish you and a your kiddos a wonderful start to the school year.
