Baseball Mom Must-Haves

Ryan has been playing baseball since he was five years old and I've been wearing the baseball mom title proudly since. I can't tell you how many hours I've spent at all of the fields he's played at but I can share some things that have made being a baseball mom just a bit easier. I've been out at games in the heat, in the cold, very sick, very pregnant and the list goes on. 

Since Spring Ball is in full swing I thought this was the perfect time to share all of the baseball mom goodies that I've found throughout the years. If you have Amazon Prime most of the items pictured below will ship to you for free and arrive within two business days, just in time for your next game on Saturday. 

I've linked everything for you below. Click on the link with the item name and it will take you directly to the product page where you can shop it.

Baseball Mom Hat || Stadium Seat || Baseball Mom Blanket

Baseball LOVE tee || Baseball Mom Popsocket || Baseball Mom Custom Tumbler || Baseball Tote

The Stadium Seat makes any bleacher or bench comfortable and provides really great back support.

How cute is this Baseball Tote  Ryan has always had his own baseball bags but for some reason I always end up carrying ten of his things after each game so I always bring an extra tote with me and this one is perfect.

Baseball Mom Blanket - I love that you can customize this blanket.

BOGO 50% off Dresses for Easter

I've got something to brighten up your Monday! Target is having a BUY ONE GET ONE 50% off DRESSES sale today. Their dresses are so perfect for Spring and Easter.

Honestly, I have the hardest time shopping for dresses so when I have an event I need a dress for I kind of panic. Recently, I had to buy a dress for my grandmother's 80th birthday party and on a whim I decided to try dresses on at  Target. Every dress I tried on I loved and that never happens to me. I ended up buying the dress pictured below. The fit is perfect, it has pockets and I got so many compliments on it. I love that I can dress it up with heels or down with sandals. I think this is going to end up being my Easter dress as well.

If you're still looking for an Easter dress, look no further! I've linked the cutest florals and Spring print dresses below along with some fun solids. You can basically get two dresses for the price of one and Target offers free shipping with orders of $35+. All dresses are on sale so if you're looking for a dress for your little one I've linked the cutest options below.

Happy shopping and thank you for stopping by Life By Meli!

REME: On Demand In home massage and stretching


I recently attended an event on behalf of Attract Magazine at the REME office in Santa Monica for a preview of what REME App has to offer. The event was appropriately called Request, Restore Repeat - A self-care afternoon with REME. The REME App is the first app of it's kind to offer on demand custom massages and stretch therapy. From the app you can request a 60, 75 or 90 minute massage, a 30 or 60 minute back to back massage for two or, 45 minutes of stretching. Once you have downloaded the app you can request the service you want and in less than an hour an expert will arrive at your door. You can also book your services 48 hours in advance. Every expert is vetted and certified so you can rest assure that you will receive excellent service from a complete professional in the comfort of your home, office or hotel room.

If you have been following me recently you know that I am all about finding the time with my busy schedule for self-care. This event had my name written all over it. I arrived for the event tired, anxiety-ridden and stressed out from a long week of LIFE. I was excited to learn about the REME App, which is focused on self-care through relaxation on demand but, I never imagined I would leave this event so relaxed and happy.


For the self-care afternoon with REME The REME office was set up like a full on spa and every room in the office was filled with a calming scent, massage tables and candles. Every REME expert I met was polite and very attentive. We were offered a preview of REME's services and I was completely comfortable the entire time.

The afternoon began with with an assisted stretching session. During this session I stretched out muscles I didn't know I had and by the end of it he stress tension in my neck and shoulders had disappeared and I felt completely relaxed. I think stretching is my new jam!


We moved on to a preview of Reiki. If you don't know what Reiki is don't feel bad because I literally googled Reiki before attending the event. Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist (in this case a REME expert) can channel energy into the patient by means of touch to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotion well-being. Unlike the stretching session this was a lay there and don't do anything but relax session and that is exactly what I did. After stretching my body was relaxed and after the Reiki I felt like my energy and emotional health was restored. In the middle of the session my mind kind of went blank and I felt an overwhelming sense of peace that I am now still basking in. Although Reiki is not a service that is currently offered through the REME App alone, many of the experts incorporate Reiki in their massage therapy so you get the best of both worlds!

The last service we previewed was a massage. The expert who performed my massage was able to pin point the tension in my shoulders and worked his way through five layers of muscles that I didn't even know I had. It was amazing and I can't wait to book my first massage with the REME App.



After previewing REME's amazing services we were treated to cupcakes and Kombucha floats made with Carmela ice cream. Talk about relaxing and indulging.

The REME App is available for download on Apple App Store or Google Play. The app will allow you to check whether or not REME experts travel to your area at this time. I highly recommend this service. As always all thoughts and opinions are my own.

A big thank you to REME for having us at this fabulous event and for the thoughtful parting-gift.

Self-Care Featuring Smile Brilliant

As a busy mom of three finding the time for self-care can be a challenge but I try to remind myself that it is also important in order to have a healthy mind, body and soul. You know that one thing you've always wanted to do for yourself but never got around to doing? For me, teeth whitening is that thing. I've always wanted to try a teeth whitening product but it's always fallen short on my self-care list. Smile Brilliant recently approached me about trying out their products and as excited as I was to finally whiten my teeth I was also nervous about the process. How would I find the time to whiten my teeth for even an hour a day? I've also heard that teeth whitening can be very painful and uncomfortable. Would the pain get in the way of the many things I have to accomplish every day? Again, I had to remind myself that I had to do this because doing something I've always to do for myself was not taking away from anything else I would be doing for anyone else. That's mom guilt at it's finest.

From beginning to end the whitening process with Smile Brilliant was a breeze. I was able to whiten my teeth while doing laundry, while cooking, cleaning, taking care of my kids and even while reading bedtime stories. At times I even forgot I had the whitening strips in my mouth. The Smile Brilliant whitening strips are custom made to fit your mouth which is probably why this whitening product is so efficient and easy to use.


 Whitening before bed works best for me so I start whitening right before my kid's bath time and by the time they are in bed I am done whitening. I never experienced any real tooth sensitivity and it definitely did not stop me from going about my day. I am so happy that I was able to incorporate teeth whitening into things I do with my boys daily because I'm doing something for myself without feeling any guilt.

Smile Brilliant Giveaway
While researching teeth whitening methods in the past I learned that whitening with strips is the only way to remove deep stains in tooth enamel. By day five of whitening with Smile Brilliant I saw a huge difference in my teeth and I also noticed how evenly my teeth were whitening. I first noticed the results after taking a picture and my smile actually stood out. My teeth looked like they did 15 years ago in my pre-coffee drinking days. This was such a confidence booster and I couldn't wait to wear shades of lipstick I hadn't dared tried in years.


I had many questions from the get go but Smile Brilliant answered all of my questions quickly and honestly and made the entire process so incredibly easy. I would highly recommend Smile Brilliant to anyone looking for a safe and easy way to whiten your teeth.
