We’re celebrating Mother’s Day in the UK on Sunday 11th March. It’s a day to make time with our families and loved ones and celebrate the special women in our lives. For me, all I need is day with my husband and children. Happy, healthy families are rich indeed.
However, if your children/husband have asked you to choose a gift for yourself, or indeed if you would like some ideas of what to buy, I’ve compiled a beautiful little gift guide of the items that I would be absolutely delighted to receive. Some of these I already own and have so much joy and use from, other’s are lurking on my wish list in the hope that I might be lucky enough to own one day…..
So, if like me you’re into glowing, golden Jennifer Lopez inspired skin, you may be lusting over the brand-new Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Highlight. Despite having an extensive highlight collection of various tones and textures, I’ve still convinced myself that I need this. It’s described as second skin formula which reflects a light, brilliant gold. It has my name ALL over it. It’s also limited edition so you need to be quick or you’ll be looking at three times the price on eBay! It’s priced at £29 and can be bought here.
Whilst browsing the virtual beauty aisles, I stumbled across this beauty. If you are a regular watcher of my Instagram stories, you’ll have heard me rave about the Huda Beauty Warm Brown Obsessions palette. I’ve barely touched another eye shadow since I excitedly ripped the package open on my birthday! The textures are rich and buttery, blend like a dream and suit my skin tone as though it was especially made for me. I’ve worn it every day. The next on my wish list is the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Edition. The colour selection features every day tones as well as peachy-golden shimmers to stand out from the crowd on an evening out. There is not a single colour in this 18 colour palette that I wouldn’t use. It’s a pricey £56 from Cult Beauty, but worth every penny as it will last forever. It can be bought here.
Recently, I’ve developed quite a taste for Rose wine. Who doesn’t like a icy cold glass of fruity pink goodness to relax? After watching an episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I was intrigued to hear the lavish ladies order a bottle of ‘Whispering Angel’. The name of the rose itself had me sold. So I ordered a bottle online. It’s more expensive than your typical supermarket wine, of course, but this is a bottle for special occasions and the perfect gift. It’s absolutely beautiful. The bottle alone is so striking it looks beautiful on the kitchen worktop. It costs £16.49 plus delivery and can be ordered from Drinks Supermarket here.
Who doesn’t love to receive roses? It’s a very traditional gift on Mother’s Day, however for that extra something special, a bunch of roses in a box makes for a unique present. I have two faux versions from Sister Sister Bouquets and Stephanie Smyth Events respectively. They are an ideal accessory to add to a room to create a warm, pretty and homely atmosphere.
Now, my next two items are a real splurge. These could be goodies to keep in mind for your next birthday perhaps, if not Mother’s Day!
You’ve heard me mention the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream before. A more in depth review can be found here on my skin care blog. Not only is the jar the prettiest thing you’ll have on your bedside table, it houses the richest and most luxuriously juicy cream you could ever imagine! You can buy both day and night versions from House of Fraser here
Now here’s possibly the prettiest purse I’ve ever seen. Blush and rose gold perfection! Actually, I think everything I’ve mentioned on this post is too! This is the Tammy Large Crystal Top Purse. Pulling this out of my handbag every day would just make me smile….and possibly encourage me to spend! You can buy from House of Fraser for £85 here.
I hope all the mummies out there have the fabulous day on Sunday that you deserve. I’d love to know you what have your eye on and if you’ve tried any of the treasures mentioned in this blog.
Happy Mother’s Day!
