It’s not too early to discuss Mother’s Day, is it? It is only two or so weeks away, which is practically any day now …
To me, Mother’s Day is all about being spoilt. Specifically me being spoilt
I’m a Gemini, see, and *apparently* we like any occasion where the spotlight is firmly planted in our general direction. We’re also a little too fond of life’s little indulgences. So, I’m just living up to these expectations. That’s all I’m doing. Truly.
And if you’re anything like me, it takes a whole lot of dreaming, some re-jigging of the family budget and some pretty major hinting to get just what you want for Mother’s Day.
Umm, re that major hinting bit, I’ve conveniently compiled a little list to assist Mr Styling You with his Very Important Shopping Duties. I’ve even made it easy for him, with links to the relevant websites where said wishlist products can be found waiting for their new home.
I do not at all expect all five of them … quite frankly, given that we are saving for New York, I will be getting a wishlist IOU note attached to my tea and toast in bed on Sunday, May 13. But you know me, a girl’s got to dream …
I wear at least one piece of Uberkate everyday. To me, adding a piece or two of this handcrafted and stamped Australian-made jewellery is like a gorgeous daily ritual. A little slice of calm in the madness that is the morning school rush hour in this house. This bangle is next on my uberlist. I think it would be very much at home living it up at my left arm party.
I’ve had one of these in my sights for practically as long as I’ve been blogging. Just the perfect thing for resting my weary feet on under my desk, don’t you think? And so pretty? I may have taken matters into my own hands on this one (sometimes you need to do that Stylers … particularly when there is 20% off like there is right now until Sunday if you add the code POUFFE20 at the checkout).
I do love my candles. Yes I do. Instant mood creators. And when they are handcrafted from soy wax and made in Australia and feature a gorgeous sweet pea and jasmine scent, I’m in heaven. My all-time favourite Ecoya scent is lemongrass and ginger but I’m happy to branch out a bit especially when there is pretty packaging, hand cream and soap involved.
My current wallet – a faithful Mimco friend – has served me well but alas it is falling apart from daily
abuse use and credit card stuffing. I’m looking for a new handbag friend and I think this wallet would fit in just nicely. I’m a bit excited about its 30 card slots …
You didn’t think I could let a special day go past without a drop of bubbles or two … or three, could you? Of course not. You know me too well. I think one of these teeny bottles served up nice and icy with lunch would be quite special. I’m also starting a MAJOR health kick in the week following Mother’s Day – so if I’m to stop drinking for a few weeks then at least let my last drink be a quality one. Please.
What do you think of my list? Do you celebrate Mother’s Day? Are you a mum and like to be spoilt with a treat or two?
I’m switching off
Remember when I wrote this blog post? When I said that I’d switch off for a whole 24 hours? That I wouldn’t so much as touch my phone or iPad?
Eeek. The day is here. It’s tomorrow: Saturday, April 28.
When you land on my blog you’ll find a little widgety thingy (if you blog and want to add one to your blog, you can download the plugin to do so here) that will give you the option of entering a pretty damn fabulous competition that could see you really switching off and escaping to Kangaroo Island of the coast of South Australia.
Now, I’d very much like that!
Me, I’ll be keeping myself VERY busy, packing for Mercedes-Benz Australian Fashion Week and writing (yes, with one of those old fashioned things called a p-e-n) down how I’m coping.
My family thinks I won’t cope. Full. Stop. How do you think I’ll go?
