Embracing Motherhood and How to Care for Yourself

As a new mama, you have a lot of responsibility on your hands. You want to make sure that you treat your baby with the utmost care. However, you don't want to forget yourself. There are a few ways you can make sure to take good care of yourself as you embrace your new role as a mother.

1. Get a new look. Grab your iPad and a credit card. Log on to your favorite stores and purchase beautiful clothes. Give yourself a chance to get used to your new body so if need be, purchase clothes a few sizes up. Know that it won't be long until you get back to your normal size. Purchase beautiful sundresses that are easy to slip in and out of. Pick out a few shades of beautiful lipstick. Grab a few pairs of sunglasses and some concealer to erase the under eye circles from long nights with the baby.

2. Go to the spa. Visit your local spa for a massage and a facial. Your skin goes through so many changes through pregnancy. Give it some tender, loving care with a great facial and deep cleansing. If your body is feeling aches and pains, this is a great time to get a massage. To finish the experience, get a good manicure and pedicure. Choose pretty nail polish colors that'll make you happy.

3. Travel. Don't be afraid to travel after the birth of a new baby. Once you have the doctor's permission to fly, hop on a plan with your family and enjoy the beauty of a vacation. You can easily make arrangements to prepare for the baby. Rent a crib Florida and bring your blankets, pillows and other accessories for the baby's comfort. You might have to pack a little bit more than you would if you were packing for yourself. This is a part of being a new mama.

4. Use help. Understand that it's not bad to hire a nanny to help you with the process. If you have family members or friends that are willing to help, utilize their help. There will be times when you'd like a break so you can get some sleep, complete some work or go on a date with your spouse. These are the times when help comes in handy.

Finding the Right Rug For Your Home

Typically, rugs are referred to as a décor accessory. While they do fulfill that role, they can be much more than an enhancement to a room. The diversity of design, material and size make finding the perfect rugs for your home a pleasurable experience.

Visual Warmth

Modern and contemporary decors can seem a little stoic or harsh. A rug featuring geometric designs, a muted herringbone pattern or a Nouveau style rug could soften the atmosphere of a modern or contemporary décor. You can expand your search for the ideal rug for your modern décor by exploring rustic style rugs. Rustic accent rugs have a wonderful earthiness that complements the simplicity associated with modern design.

Define Space

Whether you’re decorating an expansive home with an open floor plan or a large studio condo or apartment, rugs can help you create defined areas. With the assistance and expertise of designers such as those at PRG Rugs, you can select the perfect rugs to use to create individualized areas. With the guidance of a professional designer, you can mix a variety of rug styles and patterns to create a decor that will be your personal, unique creation.

Think Large

People often select rugs that are too small for a specific area. Using lots of small rugs in a room can make it look chaotic. A large rug can be used to unify a seating area. Placing a decorative rug under the dining table can be a great way to add an additional artistic element to the room. You shouldn’t restrict your rug choices to one specific shape or size. Layering rugs has become a popular trend. Layering gives you an opportunity to express your creativity. Changing the arrangement of the layers is a simple, almost effortless, way to give a room a new look.

Rugs may be the most versatile accessory in a room. They add some welcomed physical warmth to a living room or bedroom. An accent rug can make a foyer incredibly impressive. When choosing rugs, think of them as art for your home.
