More for Mom: Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

Posted in Lifestyle
on May 3, 2017

It’s time to celebrate your mom who packed your lunch for years on end, made sure you had clean laundry, and who (still) gives you extra food to take home after a family dinner. #Blessed

Mother’s Day is a day where we remind ourselves of all the work our moms have done. Real talk, when you’re a mom—you do it all. So I give TONS of credit to the moms out there who act as a chef, house cleaner, laundry-doer, driver, personal cheerleader, doctor, and so much more. Y’all are amazing.

With that in mind, it’s always nice to do a little more for mom around this time of year, which is why I’m sharing five simple but thoughtful gifts to give to your mom this Mother’s Day that won’t break the bank. These are gifts and gestures your mom will surely appreciate. Be sure to leave a comment below telling me your plans for your mom this Mother’s Day! 

1| What I Love About Mom Book: Francesca’s

I enjoy a personalized gift that will show the time, effort and energy you put into a gift. I had no idea when I got this for my mom, she would cry tears of joy simply from reading my messages inside. If you enjoy personal gifts for your mom, I would definitely recommend this!

2| Coffee Date

Because what’s better than taking time out of the day to relax for an hour or two over some coffee with your mom? Treat her to Starbucks or your favorite local shop in town. It’s a simple gesture, but it’s perfect for the mom who simply prefers to spend time with you rather than receiving gifts.

3| Alex and Ani Mom Bracelet: Alex and Ani

If your mom hasn’t been introduced to Alex and Ani, she will love that her first bracelet is a Mother’s day bracelet! It’s a simple gift, but it’s versatile and can be worn with other jewelry she may have. If she already has her fair share of Alex and Ani bracelets, opt for something more unique from a local boutique in your town.

4| Edible Arrangements: EdibleArrangement.com

Ya’ll, let’s be honest. Everyone knows that Edible Arrangements are amazing, and there’s no one more deserving of this gift than your mom. There are several different packages to choose from, and no matter what—she will love this gift because who doesn’t want chocolate-covered fruit!?

5| Mom Mug: Target

If you don’t live in the same state or city as your mom and can’t be with her for Mother’s Day, send a cute mug like this one from Target with a gift card to her favorite coffee shop, or a package of her favorite coffee to make at home! It’ll be the perfect way for her to enjoy a little down time and think of you every time she uses her mug.

5 Things to be Happy About: May Edition

Posted in Lifestyle
on May 1, 2017

Throw your hands up if you tweeted/shared/posted anything yesterday regarding today being May 1st! I don’t know about you, but I was singing, “It’s gon’ be May” ALL. DAY. LONG. without any shame. And I spent most of the day sending some pretty ridiculous snaps to my friends as well.

It’s safe to say that I’m looking forward to a new month. April was a whirlwind of adventures and lovely things between turning 23, traveling to Boston for a week and planning some exciting surprises here on the blog. I promise I’ll be sharing more on that soon!

In the meantime, I’m sharing what I’m looking forward to now that it’s May. Be sure to leave a comment sharing what you’re looking forward to this month!

1| One-Year Work Anniversary 

I don’t know how a year already flew by, but it has been one year since I began my first marketing job. Needless to say, I couldn’t be happier with where I’m at in my career after one year. I feel so blessed to wake up and go to a job that I love, and where I’m constantly growing and learning about the field I’m in. P.S. I’m thinking about writing a post on what I’ve learned so far in the marketing field for those who are interested. Let me know if this is something you would want to read.

2|  Cinco de Mayo

Because who doesn’t want a reason to grab some margaritas with your best friends and celebrate? Or, if you would rather have a girls night in, check out some of these awesome recipes to make while you’re watching Netflix.

3| Spring Flowers, ya’ll

I promised myself I would be treating myself to the things I enjoy. And if you know anything about me, you’ll know that I love some fresh cut flowers. Peonies and Tulips are two of my favorite flowers, but I’m not discriminating on any other beautiful blooms. So I’m encouraging you all to treat yourself in some way this month, even if it’s a bouquet of flowers. Because it’s all about the little things in life that can make a day better. #amiright?

4| Unexpected Visitors

I’m learning more and more that last-minute plans turn out to be the best type of plans. I’m thankful for my friends who are always encouraging me to be spontaneous. Two of my best friends from college are driving down to visit me this month, and I’m so excited. The last time all three of us were together was more than two years ago, so this is going to be a great time to catch up and spend time together.

5| Memorial Day Weekend

Cooking on the grill, playing backyard games and relaxing for a long weekend is something I’m definitely looking forward to. May is going to be a very busy and productive month, so it will be nice to enjoy the end of the month with family, friends and a little bit of fun as we move on into June!

What are you looking forward to this month? Make sure to share any exciting plans (blogging related or personal) in the comments below!
