Happy Monday! I hope y’all had a wonderful weekend! The weather was absolutely beautiful here. It’s supposed to be in the mid to upper-70s this week, and I’m pretty excited about it! Finally! I just hope this time it’s here to stay!
Mother’s Day will be here in less than a month. Sunday, May 8th to be exact. Whether you’re looking for something special to get your own mother or something for yourself, I’ll be providing great gift ideas these next few weeks. If you miss a dedicated Mother’s Day post, no worries. I’ll add each post to my sidebar, so you’ll be able to shop them all, over the next few weeks. Today, I’m starting out with beauty and fragrances. Enjoy!
My Favorite Gift Idea
(For the mother who loves music.)
So I gifted this little Bose Speaker to myself, and now I’m considering it for my mom for Mother’s Day. It’s a cute little size with a great sound. We already have this portable Bose speaker that I gave Lanier last year, but this smaller size is perfect for our bathroom. I actually brought it in the kids’ bathroom last night and they had a ball with it during bath time. The price is great for Bose speakers. Toss in a couple of tickets to her favorite concert, and you’ll earn bonus points.
MAC has a new Future Collection that just debuted. I’m loving the new polish called Moonday from the line. I’m wearing it in the pic above holding the Bose Speaker. I’d say the color is like a subtle shiny silver. I’m usually an Essie girl, but I really loved how easy this color was to apply, and so far it’s stayed on for the last three days.
Her eye shadow has always been my favorite. This is a great neutral palette.
I love that it comes with so many brushes too.

Favorite Fragrances & Gift Sets
Bobbi Brown ‘Beach House’ Limited Edition Set (Love this fragrance for summer!) // Tory Burch Fragrance Set (My everyday scent. A great gift set!) // Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb Set (One of my all-time favorite scents! This set is a great deal already, but now it’s been marked down more for a limited time.) // Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede Gift Set (Another fragrance gift set a mother would love. You can’t go wrong with anything by Jo Malone.) // Voluspa Laguna Candle // Diptique Candle (I keep this in my bathroom, along with a few others. It’s one of my all-time faves! I’ll be the first to admit it’s a pricey candle, but it lasts forever and afterward, you can use the glass to hold your favorite pencils or make-up brushes). // La Mer Gift Set (If you’re a die-hard La Mer fan, this gift set is a great price!)
I’ll be back later this week to share my Mother’s Day jewelry gift ideas. Oh, and tomorrow I’m announcing a giveaway, so be sure and check back!
I hope y’all have an awesome start to your week!
