Mother's Day is coming up. And while I always make a fuss of my amazing Mum, since 2012 it has been a day for me too! Very exciting! While Mason is still a bit young to understand what's going on and why exactly he's scribbling inside a card it's nice to do something together. The presents are nice too!
The tradition is that I get shoes from Mason, even though that tradition only started last year we're sticking to it! As with most Spring/Summers I'm absolutely loving the pastel shades that are about. I'm always in some sort of pastel top and my nails are often mint/lilac/pale blue. I thought it was time this colour obsession moved this on to my footwear! You all know how crazy I am about my shoes *must do another shoe post soon* I love these court shoes from Office, they are available in a few new shades so I'm not 100% which colour I'll opt for but the pale blue is definitely a big contender.
While I don't have a massive sweet tooth I bloody love cookies! I've been craving Millies Cookies for months now and what I really want is one of those massive iced ones. Fingers crossed!
Nothing makes me happier than good hair days, they can really change everything (shallow? me?) but having bouncy hair gives me a spring in my step -BOUNCINESS ALL ROUND! With my hair being quite fine I find that new hair extensions really help and I get mine from hair trade. There's a great selection of colours and I love that they don't cost a fortune. For a long time everyone thought my hair was a lot longer than it was, that's how natural they look. I prefer clip-ins as I can take them out at the end of the day and they are easier to look after too.
To add to my new full hair I'd love this 'Full of Secrets' hair clip. for those who don't know (and have possibly been living under a rock) It's a Mean Girls thing. There are so many "Mean Girls things" aren't there? The other day my boyfriend turned to me and said 'Jenn, Who's Glenn Coco?' ...anyway, I digress. It's a little pricey for a hair clip but it is gold plated and looks really cute which is a good enough excuse for me! ...And my hair is full of secrets after all.
My lipstick obsession is constantly growing and I've wanted to treat myself to a YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick for a while. I admit it's the packaging that as got me (well done YSL) but the shade Corail Intuitive is something I would get a lot of wear out of too. It's such a luxury product it makes the perfect gift!
It's not Mother's Day without a bunch of flowers. Do you know that Mother's Day is actually the busiest time of year for florists? I always thought it was Valentines Day but Mothers Day actually beats it to the post -a little fact for you there! I'd love my favourite pink lilies to brighten up the house. They smell incredible too!
I'm loving slogan tee's at the moment. I have a few but I feel like the 'I woke up like this' t-shirt from Lauren Pope's range needs to be added to my collection. It works on 2 levels, of course there is the ever so slightly arrogant 'what? I just wake up beautiful' thing but I often wake up with a mood that sticks with me all day. So I'm really bouncy and happy for no apparent reason... 'I woke up like this' or "I hate everyone and everything, don't talk to me" it's just that 'I woke up like this' ....see?
I'm a massive Disney freak. I have a big box of collectibles that I have saved up over the years and my kitchen has all sorts of Disney themed items. Even Mason watches more Disney films than he does anything else, I'm making sure he is being brought up right! I had a little browse through the Disney Store website the other day and I fell in love with this tea cup. It's such a subtle Disney design so it's actually a little more grown up. I love that there is a coaster that doubles up as a lid too, very handy with Mason running about who has now taken to putting things in my drinks when I'm not looking! (not in a drink-spiking kind of way, more in a Buzz Lightyear wants to go for a swim kind of way!)
More than any of the materialistic things I just want to spend some proper time with my little family in the city that I adore. So a day in London in the sunshine would be the ultimate way to spend Mothers Day in my eyes. Maybe we'll stop for a coffee while Mason has a nap. Perfect.
Any Mother's Day plans?
Are you a Mum?
