DISCLAIMER: THE POSTALIST KINDLY GIFTED ME WITH A THREE MONTH SUBSCRIPTION IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW. ALL OPINIONS EXPRESSED IN THIS REVIEW ARE MINE ONLY.
The Power-Mama Post is a Subscription service created by owner, Nicole Gagliardi from Postalist.
Each month will bring a beautifully designed postcard thoughtfully curated with a unique affirmation and an inspiring quote to help any mama make it through even the toughest days of being a parent.
Who couldn’t use that?
Between parenting, working, trying to keeping tiny humans alive, COVID, quarantines, remote learning, and anything else life may throw at us, mommin’ is tough and no one gets through it unscathed… Some days you’re literally changing the time on the clock so bedtime comes sooner and other days you’re gazing lovingly at your sleeping angels wishing they were awake because you miss them.
I have to tell you, Nicole is my kind of mom and I can totally relate to her stories.
She is smart, funny, honest, and doesn’t mince words. (You need to check out some of her blog.) Already a busy mom with a four-year-old daughter and two-year-old son, she started the Power-Mama Post in April- right in the middle of a pandemic, as if life wasn’t already stressful enough.
Nicole describes her inspiration for creating her own subscription service:
“In these days of physical distancing, there’s not much more that we can offer one another aside from a reminder that you’re not alone, you’re doing your best, and your best is enough.
That’s why I created the #PowerMamaPost, to remind every mama who needs to hear it that this is hard, it’s not just you, and you can get through. The cards are simple enough; something lovely to look at (yes, you deserve beautiful things), and just a few words. It won’t solve all your problems, but it does help.”From Why I started a subscription for moms during the pandemic, by Nicole Gagliardi
WHAT YOU’LL GET
Each month you’ll receive an awesome card in the mail (is it weird that I still get super-stoked to receive actual “mail,” like when I was a kid?)
Along with your card, you’ll also receive an e-mail containing helpful hacks, tools, and resources aimed at helping you to reduce stress and anxiety and to make mom life a bit easier for you. There are things like the #SelfcareSeptember Challenge, worksheets, TED Talks, plus stories about her life and what she’s learning.
The month-to-month subscription option is $9.00 CAD
The pre-paid six month subscription is $40.00 CAD
The twelve month subscription is $72.00 ($6.00 CAD/month).
All subscriptions are hassle-free and may be canceled at any time.
Also check out her shop for some other fantastically funny cards, which she’ll even send for you!
I love the Power-Mama Post!
“Parenting” doesn’t always leave time for the parent. Many of us neglect our own self-care, well-being. Often we don’t time to devote to our own relationships, friendships, and support systems. The Power-Mama Post Card is a small but powerful monthly source of inspiration, a reminder to give yourself grace and be kind to yourself, and a kick in the bottom to keep on keepin’ on.
I have a card displayed on my desk at work, a card hanging by my bathroom mirror, and another in my journal. I love that I can see them and use them as a reminder for myself each day. They make me smile and help me to feel not so alone and lonely.
My favorite card has been June’s card, which includes the following quote from Anne Douglas, “When we give our kids the gift of a gloriously imperfect parent, we give our kids permission to be gloriously imperfect too.”
I tend to have a perfectionist outlook when it comes to many of my endeavors and being a good role model for my children. The quote above really resonated with me because I have been feeling like a very crappy parent lately; I’ve been traveling, working overtime, missing family meals, and getting frustrated easily with my kids. Plus, my five-year-old daughter Abby seems to have inherited my perfectionist tendencies. I want to provide a good example for her, but I also want to her know that it is OK to not be ‘perfect.’
I believe this would be an amazing gift for any mom (and I will be gifting a subscription to my sister, mother of 3!) Every mom needs a pick-me-up and encouragement from time to time.
I give the Power-Mama Post 5 out of 5 stars!
