Morning you awesome human! I hope you are having an awesome weekend, and I hope you are showering your Mama with all the love she deserves today. Whether it is virtually, via a drive by hug & kiss, or in person, I wish you, your Mother, and all the fabulous Mom's a very Happy Mother's Day!
And, with it being a Holiday, it is another excuse for me to shop! :) Because, as I mentioned in a previous post, one of my "things" is about giving a really fabulous gift! This year, more than ever, it has been SO fun - I know, something nice to think about amongst the craziness - since stores are closed, online shopping is all we got, and using social media to shop small, and local, has been key!
If you remember, I wrote a post a couple weeks ago about all of my TOP PICKS BUT these are the 3 that I scored for my mama!
Katie Kime Notepads: With over 26 different prints to choose from, there is a cute notepad set that will fit the personality of your Mom or loved one! Each print comes with a set of 2 and, for an additional charge, you can opt to have them monogrammed and/or with a lucite tray. I did opt out of the tray, although now I wish I had purchased. The notepads are a bit on the smaller side. Please, they are fabulous but my mental vision of 4x6 was a bit off, hence why the tray would have given a little more substance.
One of the perks is that they come in a signature orange box, which I adorned with a gold ribbon. Voila! With 36 pieces of paper per pad, these are BOLD, BRIGHT, and something every girl needs! Seriously, I bought myself a set because notepaper seems to be a hot commodity nowadays. And, yes, I did add a cute monogram too! Prices start at $18.
Indigo Seas "The Ivy" Pottery: While this is a gift that I WANT, I mean, REALLY WANT, it only seems fitting that I purchased these gorgeous mugs from one of my favorite places (and my Mom's too) in Los Angeles - "The Ivy." Seriously, take a peek at the website and you will totally get WHY!
And I was SO EXCITED that they, recently, opened up their virtual shop to purchase! Kind of a funny story; I had been searching high and low and then, finally, called the shop to see if they would send. That same week, they opened up access via their Instagram and a week later they opened up their Shopify account. See, it was meant to be, right?
I have always wanted to visit their home shop in Beverly Hills; I have had the opportunity to visit both of their restaurants in Beverly Hills & Santa Monica. Apparently they have an amazing bakery too! The hand painted pottery is designed by the owner herself, Lynn Von Kersting.
With 3 different prints to choose from, I look forward to building this collection for not only my Mom but for myself too! Seriously, take a peek at the website and check out all of the beautiful, fun, eclectic pieces, and why this is one of my favorite spots!
Haute Shore The Greyson Tote: This one of the HOTTEST bags right now! Made of neoprene, this FUNCTIONAL & FUN bag is lightweight, 2 different style shapes, removable bottom liner & wristlet pouch, AND hand washable too! So many patterns to choose from I am SURE you can find one that FITS the personality of your Mom (or really ANY day for that matter)!
Did I mention it is a steal for $97 (and you can purchase it at one of my favorite small businesses in Baltimore). Once again, one for her, and one for me. She scored this classy gray and white "Wonder," and mine may have a gray metallic skull. You know, just a little punk rock. I need to change it up a bit!
Once again, I hope your Mom has an absolutely FABULOUS day! Love to know what your are up to today! Feel free to drop a line and say "hey!"
