Mother’s Day Gift Ideas


Mother’s Day is only around the corner and I’ve been racking my brain trying to think of a present for the woman who has it all, so I thought I’d share some low price and higher price ideas with you for all the yummy mummies out there. Who knows? You might even end up treating yourself to something nice after this post! I want it all *shoppingaddict

Mine arrived today and I love it! Packaging, presentation and the thoughtful note inside made me smile. 

I just love Aisling’s new online treasure trove of all things stationary, homeware and accessories! 

Earrings from the gorgeous Emma from The Jewel Genie

And Emma just contacted me with the great news that’s she has 20% off bags all this week. Makes buying the perfect Mother’s Day gift all that easier don’t ya think 


Necklace I just ran a competition with the lovely Caroline so check out her page as she is relatively new to business and one to watch.

I bought one of these Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks for my Mom as a stocking filler for Christmas, she has not put it down since. 
Loving the look of this Penneys dupe for the Naked palettes-hope I can find it now! 

I cannot speak highly enough of this Clinique eye cream, it smells good, not too perfumed, is light and so mosterising. I am loving using it. 

Stella McCartney bag My best friend recently got one of these and I cannot stop thinking about it since I saw it. Those who know me know I have always had a weakness for a designer bag or three!

From the runways to the streets, delicates shades of pink such as blush and mauve are proving to be the colour hue with staying power whatever the season. 

It’s not the first time I’ve blogged about this particular colour, you might remember my ‘steal her style’ post on Jessica Alba from before.  



Steal her style; 


When my favourite blogger wears this colour combo, it definetly means we should stand up and take note. 




Bag *sigh 

If you don’t want to spend a small fortune, I’ve picked out some cheaper alternatives to Christine’s look. 


Heels Available to pre order now. 



I think it will be easy to incorporate these pretty pink hues into my wardrobe this spring and I will certainly enjoy shopping, sorry trying 😉
