Mother’s Day Gift Guide

When asked numerous times over the last couple of weeks, somehow I had it in my head that I didn’t want any “things” for Mother’s Day this year… that a day spent cuddling would suffice.  While, I would thoroughly enjoy a day cuddling, it didn’t take long for me to come up with an extensive list of “things” I would love to receive, who was I kidding.
Every year on Mother’s day, my mother, without fail, says at least once “Mother’s Day should be everyday”, while I get her point, we wouldn’t have this very good excuse to drink mimosas and not have to do the dishes or laundry.   This brings me to my wish list / gift guide.  This year Mother’s Day happens to land on my Anniversary as well so the Mr. has double duty…pray for him;)

Hollywood Beauty Light Wand, 2. K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Bitch Perfect 3. Unisex Healthy Glow, Summer Tinted Moisturizer 4. Wonderglow, Instant Soft-focus beauty flash 5. Ole Henriksen Truth Serum 6. Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser 7. and for the completely unnecessary indulgence Oribe Bright Blonde Shampoo.

Every momma needs her beauty sleep and while she’s at it she might as well be sleeping pretty.  I love pajama sets, they are so chic and it makes you look a little less disheveled in the morning, it might even give your children the impression you’ve got things under control.  My sleep wish list consists of the following: 1. Three J NYC, Jackie PJ Set, it’s on sale for under $75, such a steal 2. JCrew Gingham Pajama set at Nordstrom 3. How cute are the Honeydew Intimates, Starlight Terry Sweatshirt and shorts for cooler nights this summer 4. I love a silk pillowcase, I’d love to try this Drybar Slumber Party Silk Pillowcase.  5. I have a Slip Pillowcase but need to get a new one, how pretty is this petal pink color.  6. Yes please to the Kiehl’s Sleep Tight Overnight Kit…their nighttime products are tried and true favorites 7. Rejuvenating overnight Tanning Oil…I’m sold, need to try this product from Tan-Luxe

PRETTY THINGS

I love love accessories, my taste is fairly simple and classic, I love to bring an outfit together with accessories.  They are also, always a good choice for a gift as there is very little sizing required when buying accessories.   Here are a few that I currently have my eye on:  1. The Tiffany T collection is so beautiful, I love the Cutout White Ceramic and Gold T Cuff  2.  these Deepa Gurnani Sasha Teardrop earrings are so gorgeous 3. Cult Gaia’s bags are without question the it bag of the season, the Ark Mini Amber Clutch is just plain sick. 4.  The Eugenia Kim, sky blue Courtney Fedora is the only hat I need this summer 5. The Chloe Reese Marble Aviator 6. I love the Dorothea bracelet from Oh Joy,  it’s giving my candy bracelet vibes 7. I’ve been eyeing this Bario Neal linear ring for sometime. would be a perfect Mother’s Day / Anniversary combo gift.

Finally, we’ve been working on our house here and there, we had a break through this past month as we prepped for a party at our house last weekend.  I am forever looking for pretty vignette pieces, home scents and lovely table wear.  Aerin Lauder for William Sonoma so perfectly suits my style, I could literally buy every piece.  1. We’be been in search of a great set of sconces for our eat in kitchen area, these Aerin Penz Sconces would be perfect,  2. I am a sucker for a good diffuser, I was given one from Antica Farmacista as a gift once and I am hooked, I would love to try the Cucumber Lotus Flower, 3. the Aerin basket weaved cachepot is so chic, 4. the scalloped edged dinner plates will be mine 5. back to the diffusers, I think Antica Farmacista this gift set would be amazing for a mother in law or a sister 6. we just installed a new custom table and I would love to have these stylish rattan place-mats
