Mother’s Day Gift Guide


I can’t believe that Mother’s Day is just around the corner already! A great gift for your mom can be sharing something you know she loves, or a great new product that you’ve discovered. You’ll never go wrong with a flower arrangement, and The Bouqs delivers the best bouquets. Tunic tops are another great bet for moms as they are as comfy as they are stylish. I know that my mom enjoys using essential oils, and this collection from Beautycounter is free of toxins and any other harmful chemicals you wouldn’t want to put on your face. A spritz of floral cologne, a statement making cuff, and she’s off to take on the town! She may even need a new tote to tackle all those errands. What are you gifting your mom this year?


Have you ever thought about what’s in your makeup and skincare products? I have to admit that I really hadn’t until earlier this week when I was invited to a social by one of my dear friends to learn about Beautycounter. I was shocked as the consultant, Evie Cartwright, rattled off a list of ingredients commonly found in beauty products that are banned in other countries and noted that the list of banned substances in the US has not been updated since the 1930s! I wasn’t sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised by how beautifully packaged the products are and how luxurious everything felt from the rich, silky eye cream to the delicious smelling sugar scrub. I decided to try Tint Skin, a sheer foundation product, and the Lustro Face Oil that the hostess was simply raving about. I can’t wait for my products to arrive so that I can tell you all how I’m enjoying them! Have you tried Beautycounter? Which products do you enjoy using?
