Mother's Day Gift Guide 2014!

Hello There!

Mother's Day is quickly approaching, it is May 11th!

If you can't decide on a great gift for your Mom or Mom-figure in your life then here are some suggestions!



1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13


1) I love Alex and Ani bracelets and this one is perfect for your Mom!
2) This "Like A Mother" bracelet is great for a mother-in-law or someone you consider to be a like a Mom to you.
3) This is a perfect gift if you have a Step-Mom!
4) This candle has a beautiful container and your Mom can re-use the container once the candle is gone.
5) The Desert Tulip scent is my favorite from Illume and I love the chic packaging on the candle.
6) I have a bracelet very similar to this one and I absolutely love it for adding a little (okay a lot) of sparkle to any outfit whether it be causal or dressy.
7) This necklace is both classic and fashion forward.  The pearls keep it classic while the chunky chains make it a little more edgy.  This is another piece that is so versatile.
8) Flowers for Mom is a classic gift.  Instead of buying a pre-made bouquet try purchasing a few little bundles of different flowers and put together a custom bouquet.
9) What Mom doesn't need a great carry all?  This bag is large enough to hold all the essentials and then some and it comes in some great color choices.
10) A new iPad folio is a great gift to spruce up a piece of tech you Mom may actually use.  This Kate Spade cover is great for the coming seasons and looks like a magazine!
11) Pamper her with this set from Soap and Glory that gives great deluxe sample sizes of some of their best sellers.
12) I love minimergency kits from Pinch Provisions and feel it is an essential for everyone to have on them.  They come in so many colors and styles that you will have no problem finding one that works for you Mom.
13) A subscription to a monthly or quarterly beauty box is a gift that will keep giving!  Birchbox is a great one to start with.

I hope this helps you find the perfect gift for the Mom(s) in your life!

Down to Georgetown Cupcakes!

Hello There!

A few weeks ago we went down to D.C. for my cousin's fiance's bridal shower.  While there we decided we had to go to Georgetown Cupcake.

The architecture in D.C. is gorgeous and I couldn't resist snapping a few pictures.



















We finally got through all the traffic and waited in an hour long line to get the cupcakes!!








So, I totally need that stand mixer.


Mum and I outside!

Yay, Cupcakes! (don't mind my creepy t-rex hand). Also my nails matched the sign!

 Super delicious iced chai latte. 

I got a dozen and only two were gone by the time I got home to share them with Jeremy.  They are so yummy and were well worth the wait.  Perfect cake to frosting ratio.


We waited in a line nearly that long and look the lines are still going! 

 Gorgeous trees on our drive back!
