Mainly Marta :: A Motherhood + Lifestyle Blog

SLIDER

Welcome

What started as a digital diary to document a newfound journey as a stay at home mom / wife has quickly evolved into my own little corner on the internet where I share all that life brings my way -- the good, the bad, and those "aha!" moments. All with a hint of sarcasm, a dash of truth and bold European wit. Thanks for following along!

Stocking Stuffers For The Whole Family


Hey ya'll -- today we're talking stocking stuffers. Growing up, I didn't do stockings, but it's quickly becoming one of my favorite parts of Christmas with my crew. It's the perfect place to gift trinkets and practical items. We open ours on Christmas Eve (or on the night of Christmas if dad is working the 25th) and it's really such a sweet little way to spread some cheer. 

I've complied several guides for stocking stuffers for adults, children and babes! I hope they help you on your quest for the perfect gift because I know sometimes we don't know where to start. 

Before we begin, I need to insert my disclaimer here. As you know, some of these links are affiliate links which means that should you purchase through them, I make a little commission. There is never any pressure to buy anything through them, but when and if you do, each purchase does help support me + my sweet little family and we are always so thankful for your support. 

Also, if you decide that you want to purchase a Beauty Counter skincare product from this guide, would you mind buying through my link -- click here. I recently started my partnership with them in the pursuit of using cleaner beauty products and helping others to do the same (read more about my why + the great switch by clicking here).

now, let's talk stocking stuffers! first up...

Gifts For Students


We're almost done with the gift guide series, y'all! We're already on day seven out of ten! So far we've covered pretty much everyone, so I thought I'd make this guide a little more catered, so today's gift guide is inspired by my little sister who is a pre-nursing student who is obsessed with taking notes and pretty study spaces -- mini shoutout to her #studygram page @thewordygal because it's so cute! 

Soooooo.. once again, I want to insert my famous disclaimer here -- some links listed are affiliate links which means I do make a small amount of commission if you purchase through them. There is never any pressure to buy anything, but when and if you do, each purchase does help support me + my sweet little family.

#2 -- as always, I need to insert the disclaimer here in my quest to be completely transparent with you all.  some links listed are affiliate links which means I do make a small amount of commission if you purchase through them. There is never any pressure to buy anything through them, but when and if you do, each purchase does help support me + my sweet little family and we are so thankful for your support.

Gifts For An Expectant Mama + Her Newborn

 


Today's gift guide is all about gifting a new mama and her sweet newborn baby! I've rounded up a few items that a new mom / mama to be would love to receive for herself and her little one. I received some of these items when I was expecting and after I had just given birth -- I remember the joy (and relief) it was to have some tools that would ease the transition into motherhood a bit easier. 

As always, I want to insert my famous disclaimer here -- some links listed are affiliate links which means I do make a small amount of commission if you purchase through them. There is never any pressure to buy anything, but when and if you do, each purchase does help support me + my sweet little family. We are grateful for your support.

Gifts From Brands That Give Back



It's day five of gift guides --- right? 5 down, 5 to go in our little mini-series. So, today we're shining a light on brands who are not just about profits but about shaping a better tomorrow by giving back to their communities. Supporting brands that back cause is my favorite because I really don't feel like it's money being wasted. I've picked out several brands that I love and that all back causes near and dear to my heart.  


The Brands 


hand in hand  | bar of soap

for every product purchased, they donate a bar of soap & a month of clean water to a child in need.

read more about how they give back here.
