Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is coming up and if you’re having a hard time thinking of what to get your Mother, look no further! I’ve complied 2 sets that I’m sure will help you make a choice. When it comes to gifting Mother’s Day gifts, I get so excited! Although I buy little things for my mother here and there throughout the year, I like to give a little extra on this day. My little sister and I usually think in terms of themes when giving gifts to her. Below is a Floral Themed gift guide. I love the cute ring and the straw bag; so lady-like and pretty!

The next gift guide is more random; it’s got a little bit of everything. These gifts are similar ideas that my sister and I have for this year. My mom is super trendy and loves music so we can never go wrong with the latest R&B (or Jazz) CD, as well as a cutesy phone case. She also likes to take long hot baths to relax so a nice smelling candle is always a plus!

If you’re still having trouble or you’re budget won’t allow you to buy what you want, here are a few other ideas:

1. Cook your mother her favorite meal and invite her over for dinner.

2. Take her to see an early matinee; you can see a great movie earlier in the day to avoid the regular movie ticket prices.

3. If your mother is a reader, head to the thrift store and grab a few good books for (usually) under $2 a book.

I hope these ideas help you with your Mother’s Day shopping. As corny as it may sound, remember that it’s the thought that counts. Happy shopping and be blessed!



Me, Lil Sis & Mom (’04 or ’05)

Flowers & Sunshine

The weekend has come and gone and I must say mine was not that eventful, LOL! I was in the house Friday, Saturday and Sunday with my mom because we were both under the weather. I think I watched more TV in those three days than I have in months! It was actually nice having a few days to really rest and relax. I’m feelin about 90% better so I think the R&R and meds paid off.

Because my weekend was a bit blah, I decided today’s post would be all about flowers & smiles. Corny, huh? Well, I must say I LOVE this outfit and it certainly brightens up my mood!


As I’ve said in previous posts, I am LOVING florals at the moment. I found the top at JcPenny’s a few weeks ago. I was walking through the department store to head out but I saw a few colorful tops on the way. So I sashay over to the Clearance rack and there it was…”Floral Perfection”! I immediately looked through the racks to see what else was there and to my surprise, I found some more goodies. That evening I found this top, another (black) floarl top and a pink, fishnet-like sweater. You’ll see them soon because I already have outfits planned for them, lol! 😉

Well, I hope you enjoy the pics and I hope you have a wonderful day. Be blessed & see ya soon! XO
