Name a better gift for Mom than beautiful gold personalized necklaces! They can be made special in so many ways with initials, birthstones and zodiac signs. You can personalize them for your Mother's birthday or even with your/all her children's birthdays. AU-Rate has plenty of options to choose from! If you're not a birthstone or initial fan you can just choose any of their pieces and select your Mom's preferred color - gold, white or rose! It's impossible to not be able to find the perfect piece of jewelry.


Aurate also released a new collaboration with Kerry Washington last week called The Birth of Mother  featuring beautiful organic pearls and seashell motifs. Order by May 5th for regular shipping and May 7th for overnight to get your gift in time (in stock items only, not made to order.)

If your Mom isn't a jewelry lover there are plenty of other options to make her smile! Mine will never say no to a beautiful candle, my favorite brand to splurge on the past number of years has been Voluspa, but I also discovered L’or de Seraphine last year! Both are a bit on the pricier side, but when it comes to gifting - go for the high end!


For the Mom with a sweet tooth you could bake her something yourself (check out my baking posts to see what I've made lately) or order her a fancy dessert she wouldn't buy for herself! Maybe some Ladurée macarons or Dō cookie dough! You could even find a local donut shop that makes over the top donuts! Around here we have Donut Crazy!

Side-note: How beautiful is this london blue topaz and diamond ring from Aurate? I had to buy it when I saw it matched one of my favorite necklaces that my Grandmother handed down to me.

Mother's Day is quickly approaching so it's time to start thinking about what to get your favorite Mother to celebrate the day. A great choice is Epiphany Chocolates new Pretty in Paisley collection! This collection includes 18 pieces of our fudge and caramel favorites in a beautifully decorated box. At last, all of our luscious ladies in one pretty paisley package: Party Girl (Cake Batter Fudge), Grande Diva (Dark Chocolate Fudge), Queen B (Butter Toffee Fudge), Golden Girl (Butterscotch Caramel), Sweet Carolime (Key Lime Fudge), Lady Smith (Apple Caramel), Holly Woods (Cashew Sea Salt Caramel), The Empress (Maple Walnut Fudge), and Sweet P (Butter Pecan).

I was so excited when my sample collection arrived.  The box has a paisley pattern and then is wrapped with a yellow ribbon and a daisy, so adorable!  I shared the chocolates with my family and we loved them all. My favorite was the 'Grande Diva', I'm mostly a classic chocolate girl.  My mom loved 'Queen Bee' and my Dad liked 'Sweet Caroline.'

Mother's Day (in the US) is in a little under 2 weeks, so I figured I would do a quick gift guide featuring one of my new(ish) favorite jewelry stores, 31 Bits! I have been a bit obsessed with 31 Bits since I featured them in February. I wear my bracelets every single day, they go with everything!  For those of you that missed it the first time, 31 Bits uses fashion and design to empower women to rise above poverty by offering a variety of different programs for the women they work with in Uganda, learn more about it here. Here are some pieces I think any mother would love:

31 Bits is celebrating Mother's Day by using limited edition gift bags as well as personalized gift tags on all purchases, you can write a personalized note for your Mom and they will put it on the tag for you! This is available until May 13th, so be sure to order soon to get your gift in time for Mother's Day!

Two giveaways in one week, am I going mad?! But this giveaway isn't specifically for you is for your Mother's! Mother's Day is fast approaching and this Dearest Mother Charm by Maximal Art is one perfect topper to your gift!  You can pair it with a full charm bracelet from the store or give it along with some beautiful flowers and a card.  I've shown it below with my Valentine's themed charm bracelet from Maximal Art. [I may have to make a sacrifice and use the whole thing as part of my Mother's Day gift for my lovely Mommy]

I have featured Maximal Art many times on the blog but for those of you that are new followers here is some background info:  Maximal Art was started in 1985 by Philadelphia-native artist John Wind after studying jewelry making at the Slade School of Art in London. John says that, "ultimately every single piece goes out into the world and finds a home and makes someone happy. That direct, personal, uplifting moment is what it's all about."

I am very excited to offer one of my readers this charm to give to their mother (or keep for themselves if they are lucky enough to have children ;) )
Details: This giveaway is open to readers in the US and will close on April 26th which should ensure you get the charm before Mother's Day (which is on May 13th in the United States)

Mandatory Entry: You must be a follower of my blog with google or bloglovin. You must also like Maximal Art by John Wind on Facebook (leave your name so I can check to see if you liked the page)

Today is two major holiday's for my family.  First, of course, is Mother's Day.  We're going to my Aunt's house for a brunch to celebrate all the lovely mommys.

I'm not going to go into mushy stuff; 1. because I don't like being mushy and 2. you guys don't want to hear about all the stuff my mom does for me ;)  So I'll just say: Love you mom and thanks for everything!
Second, it is my brother's 20th birthday! He is making me feel so old (as is my other brother who will be 15 in June...). So Happy Birthday Jake!!!! :D
