This Mother’s Day I am thrilled to be partnering with Teri Jon and Nina Shoes on a beautiful campaign that pays tribute to mothers everywhere. I have a very close relationship with Teri Jon, and I love what they stand for. They want to make every woman feel special and beautiful, and their dresses do just that.
I was lucky enough to be interviewed, along with four amazingly talented women in this video. It makes me tear up every time I watch it! I honestly get goosebumps at how special it is; you have to watch it!
Being a mom is my favorite job, hands down. You can see exactly how much it means to me in the video below..
Earlier this week I posted on Instagram encouraging everyone to share about the love for our mothers or what being a mother means to us by posting your own image/video with the hashtag #thankfulMOMents. Teri Jon has created a page on their site specifically for these posts, and they will automatically be loaded onto their site. The goal is to inspire women around the world to spread the love this Mother’s Day and show the world our gratitude for mothers and women everywhere. Now this is a cause I can definitely get behind!
In addition, Teri Jon is giving away a dream wardrobe prize! One lucky winner who posts using the hashtag #thankfulMOMents, tags 3 friends, and enters their email on Teri Jon’s giveaway page will win an amazing Teri Jon dress for themself and their mother/best friend! You can read more about the entry details here.
Thank you to Teri Jon for sponsoring this post and for helping spread the love to moms and women everywhere!
Mother’s Day is next weekend, so I’ve had my eye out for the perfect gift for my mom. One of my fondest memories of her growing up was her leaning over above me at the piano as she showed me how to play a new piece of music. My mom always smelled amazing. To this day, any time I smell my mom’s floral scented perfume, it takes me back to our piano lessons.
I thought a pretty new floral scented perfume would make a great gift for her this Mother’s Day. I stopped by Nordstrom, and they have so many new amazing perfumes out for spring. I own the original Miss Dior by Dior scent, but they have a new version of the scent called “Blooming Bouquet,” and it smells amazing! Right when I smelled the mix of roses and jasmine in this perfume, I knew it was perfect for my mom.
To keep with the “Blooming Bouquet” theme, I lined the inside of a simple white box with pretty pink roses, and I’m so obsessed with how it turned out! I love making a little mini presentation out of gifts. It really shows that thought and love were put into them.
Then, instead of wrapping the box, I topped it with a mini bouquet that she can use to freshen up her kitchen!
I also took a photo of us from when I was a baby (I see a little bit of baby Eli in me!) and printed it in black and white on some card stock to make a hanging tag. It really adds a personal touch that I know she will love.
I grabbed a sample of the perfume at the Nordstom beauty department when I bought the bottle, just to test it out and make sure it was a scent that would last. I love that Nordstrom does that. It’s also such an easy exchange if it didn’t end up lasting long. I might have to add it to my own Mother’s Day wish list! Nordstrom has so many other amazing new perfumes and beauty items. Have you seen the new Voluspa candle scents they have there? This one is my new favorite. One of those candles would be so cute with this wrapping technique as well!
I linked to a few of my other current favorite perfumes. I’m such a sucker for floral scents, and you can never go wrong giving a gift that smells like heaven!
This scent I can’t get enough of. It smells like floral and honeysuckle and it lasts all day. It is super concentrated, so a tiny spray is all you need for the whole day! I got 5 samples of different scents from this same brand and this one is my favorite by far.
I just discovered this scent early this week, and it is so pretty! It has a deeper scent, more romantic and rich. Perfect for a date night.
I have had this scent for a year and I’m still not tired of it. It is light and feminine, and one of the scents that gets the most use. It isn’t super strong, so it’s a great everyday scent.
Mother’s Day is next Sunday, May 8th! That’s right around the corner. If you haven’t had time to find the perfect gift for the moms in your life, I would highly recommend grabbing them (or you!) a Nume hair wand. They are having a killer sale on their classic 32mm wand, (originally $139) now only $19!
Follow this link to get it for $19 (originally $139)
It will enter the code CURLS19 automatically at checkout, super simple!
I use this 32 mm wand to curl my hair and it’s the best! This sale only goes through tomorrow night, so jump on this one quick. Tomorrow is also the last day to order to get it in time for Mother’s Day.
Here are few other Nume products that are on sale that would make great Mother’s Day gifts (these codes end on 5/8):
Nume Bold Hair Dryer for $39.99 (originally $159) with code BOLDMOM. Direct link to the sale here.
Nume Silhouette Straighteners only $24.99 (originally $139) with code MOMDAY. Direct link to sale here.
I’ve also put together some ideas from Nordstrom that are all under $50. See below for some gift ideas that any mom would love.
You can’t go wrong with a candle, and these ones have a really unique look to them, plus they come in really pretty colors.
I’m a huge fan of cute pajamas, and these ones look super comfy and can appeal to both younger and older moms.
If you’re shopping for a mom who loves jewelry, this heart jewelry tray is adorable and these stud earrings are really fun. They have a few different colors to choose from that are all really pretty.
Scarves are a great Spring accessory, and a really easy thing to gift because you don’t have to worry about getting the right size. These silk scarves come in so many colors that you can’t go wrong.
For the mom who is active or just loves a cute water bottle, this gold S’well bottle is the perfect thing. They also have it in a bright pink that I love.
If you’re shopping for a mom who is practical, you can’t go wrong with a cute notebook or a bag like this one that is versatile enough to use for work or just running errands.
I hope you have fun finding the perfect gifts to show the moms in your life just how special they are. Enjoy your weekend and let me know what you find out there!
