Obsessions | Mother’s Day Favorites + Gift Ideas

May 4, 2017

First of all thank you for all the kind words and feedback about my new blog design.   I am really excited about.  I still have some more updates to do but it is almost done!  It has been a learning a curve for me trying to figure out a new platform but I am slowly getting the hang of it.   I know yesterday it was down for a bit so thank you to everyone who alerted me to the problem.  Hopefully it stays up and running today.  A few of you suggested I align my wording to the left so I am trying that out today- let me know if y’all like that better.   Hard to believe Mother’s Day is next weekend, I swear this year is flying by in the blink of an eye.  Today I wanted to share a few items that I love and would make great Mother’s day gifts.

Mothers Day



Nest Candle

I am so in love with the new NEST scent White Camila.  Plus how gorgeous is that packaging??


I use these in all our bathrooms.  They smell amazing.


Anna Beck Ring

I have this ring and wear it everyday.  It is such a great classic ring.



I recently bought Alexa after using my parents when I was home.  The kids and I love it.  It is great for streaming music.


Natori Robe

I have this robe and it is the best.  The perfect amount of thickness and super soft.

Aerin Lauder Perfume | Mediterranean Honeysuckle + Waterlily Sun

These are my 2 everyday perfumes I alternate between.  They both smell heavenly and not over powering at all.

Twine + Twig Layers

My mom, sister and I all have this metallic set.  They are perfect alone or layered with other necklaces.

I gave my mom this version last year.  It is another great Twine and twig option.

Herbivore Coco Rose Body Polish

I love the entire herbivore line.  I keep this body polish in the shower, it makes your skin super soft and smooth.

Nambre Rose Bowl

My mom loves all things nambe.  This would be beautiful sitting out or with some fresh flowers.

Pom Pom Basket

I love this!  I think it would be adorable to fill it with a few small things your mom loves- like some magazines, a bottle of wine etc.

Herbivore Brightening Face Mask

I am a face mask addict.  I read about this on Goop and it quickly became a favorite.  It has no harsh chemical or weird ingredients and it really does even out and brighten your skin.

Kate Spade Bracelet

This is currently 40% off and comes in several colors.  I love the idea of a few different colors stacked together.

Madewell Transport Tote

This is such a great everyday tote.  I have the tan color but I love this gray color that was just released.

Cluse Watch

I own this watch and love it.  I wear it everyday.  I love the larger face and black background.

    New site looks GREAT. Easier to read and the pics really POP.
    I agree with other sand don”t think your pic is the most flatterring you could find..the color does not suit you, (and your lipstick and top sort of clash) your posture (back and head position) look scrunched up.You are beautifully tall and long and should use that to your advantage!
    Always love your recipes!
