Welcome! With just a week to go before Mother's Day I thought it would be fun to talk about items JUST for mom. I'm so excited to share some of my personal favorites with you (yes, these are all items I have and adore). While most moms don't expect big gifts (I'm thrilled with a hug and homemade artwork), it can be really fun to surprise her with something extra special. All of the items in this post would be fantastic gift ideas to treat mom on her special day (better share this post ;-) ) And of course we are going to spoil one lucky reader (wish we could spoil you all) with a great giveaway! Scroll down below to enter to win ALL of these great items.
Gold Compass Rose Necklace from MPrint Jewelry- I just recently discovered MPrint and am SO glad I did. Owner/Designer Em is uber talented and creates inspiring and versatile jewelry. Best part, MPrint is based in Portland, ME! My sea loving soul immediately fell in love with this compass rose necklace, and I know it will be a staple in my summer wardrobe.
Prive Diaper Bag in Anchors - from Foxy Vida - This is a new style for Foxy Vida, and I'm loving it (and you know I can't resist the awesome anchors pattern). For the last couple months, this has been by everyday bag. It serves as my purse, my diaper bag, my carry-on, my gym back etc.. It's been to Seattle and Florida and served me well. Foxy Vida is owned by Mary (a mom of 2) who has a great eye for design, great sense of style, but also appreciates function and necessities for moms.
Nickel & Suede Earrings- If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that N&S earrings are a staple in my wardrobe. Owner/Designer Kilee Nickels is a mom of three boys and more stylish than I could dream of. There is SO much to love about these earrings: they are incredibly versatile (i.e. I wear them with jeans and fancy dresses), they are so lightweight (so when your child yanks on them it won't be quite so painful), they are easy to pack, they add a splash of style to any outfit (available in some great colors), and best of all they won't break the bank at $21/pair.
Arbonne Skin Care & Cosmetics- I've been using Arbonne Skin Care (their RE9 line) and makeup for over a year now, and I'm a big fan. Arbonne is a 35 year old vegan Swiss-formulated health & wellness company that bans over 1400 toxic ingredients. Not only do I experience great results with their products but I find comfort in knowing that what I am putting on my face is pure, safe and beneficial. Among my favorite products are the RE9 line, the CC cream, the cream concealer (great for tired up all night with baby eyes), their bronzer, and their lip gloss.
Bixby & Co Craft Chocolate Bars- One fun fact about me, I LOVE chocolate! If you haven't tried Bixy & Co.'s bars yet, I suggest you do (you're missing out)! Their tag line is "the candy bar reinvented," and it's so true these are not your ordinary candy bars, but they certainly hit the spot. I love that they are gluten free, some are vegan, they are made with organic chocolate (with no GMO's, preservatives, or added syrups), dried fruits, roasted nuts, and exotic spices. This is also a woman owned, Maine company which you know I Iove.
Blissfully Simple Body Butter- This was the never ending winter here in Maine and a rough one on my skin. Body butter as been an absolute must for me, and one of my very favorites is from Blissfully Simple. They are a mother daughter team based in Maine, making quality products with simple ingredients.
