These current high temperatures are not only letting us know that Global Warming is real, but that Summer is here! Which means that it's time to shop for Summer essentials. Not only should you stock up on sunscreen this summer, but here are a few essentials that new moms may need this summer.

Stock up on those vitamins! You took amazing care of yourself during your pregnancy and that same level of care needs to continue postnatal. I'm not just trying to pitch you some random product. Yours truly (me) has started taking Olly vitamins. I currently take the Olly Women's Multi - Citrus, and with my Summer schedule getting jam-packed with work and other plans, I'm going to add Endless Energy for what else, but a boost of energy into the combo. I love that these vitmans can be mixed and matched into different combinations depending on your personal needs.

wpid-photogrid_1433713776879.jpgDon't worry about putting a brand new postnatal wardrobe together. Trust me, one day you'll miss those comfy elastic banded preggo jeans. What you will want to invest in is one... maybe three (there are a few different colors to choose from) SLAPS by Grace Eleyae. These caps come in handy for those days when you just do not have the energy to do anything, but take care of your new little bundle of joy. You can sleep in them and wear them when on the go. The best part is that the available colors match with just about T-shirt that you half-sleepishly pull out of your drawer.

If you are finding it difficult to find postnatal tees that fight you right, try shopping in the men's department. I'm not quite sure why current fashion labels think that all women (thin, plus size, pregnant and postnatal) want to show off their mid-drift, but not everyone want to rock a crop top or a high-low shirt. Old Navy has some really comfy men's shirt with designs that even women love. Plus, men's shirts and tanks are cheaper than women's. Save money where you can because you'll be spending quite a bit on diapers and other baby essentials.

Whitney of Naptural85 (and other natural hair enthusiasts) swear by her DIY All Purpose Nutrient Packed Homemade Hair and Body Oil, and thanks to MsDeeKay, we have an infograph of the recipe. While many natural hair sistas maybe using wide tooth combs, Felicia Leatherwood's Detangler Brush is Rouge Lioness' hair tool of choice.

wpid-photogrid_1433729227256.jpgFeeling like your old self is what most new moms try to strive for. The important part is to realize that the new you is just as beautiful as the old you. Your attire, hair, and the products on your face just highlight your beauty. A few summertime suggestions to highlight your natural beauty are SheaMoisture's Concealer, W3ll People's Expressionist Mascara, and NYX Cosmetics Butter Gloss. Don't forget to add a splash of color with one of Butter London's Nail Lacquers. But of course, these are just suggestions. The main suggestion is to choose beauty products that lack harmful chemicals. If you wouldn't put them directly on your baby, then do not put them on you.
