My Life on (and off) the Guest List

What’s Your Mother’s Day Wishlist?

I swear everytime I see the movie “To Sir, With Love”, I think of the song and how fitting the lyrics are for a mom – “But how do you thank someone, who has taken you from crayons to perfume?” or “A friend who taught me right from wrong, and weak from strong, that’s a lot to learn, what, what can I give you in return?”

When it comes to moms, they deserve the world and more (I know my mum does). There is so much I wish I could give my mum but alas it is not so, so I try to give her things I know will make her happy (which at the present time is a trip to the Caribbean – cost split between my older brother and me). When it comes to choosing a gift for your mother, it also depends on your budget. If you have a gift in mind, like perfume, but are not sure on which to pick, it could be as simple as checking out one of Kiana Beauty’s range of fragrances to help make the decision process easier. The same can be said for picking a jewellery set or clothes. No matter what you get your mother, she will appreciate the gift, regardless of the price. For my mom, I’ve made a list of other things I know she’d give a second, third and fourth look to:

Torregrossa Handbag Collection

Founded by sisters, Bridget and Megan Torregrossa, the Torregrossa Handbag Collection is made from a variety of natural, high quality leathers and will bridge the gap between high-end designer labels and less expensive, mass produced labels, without neglecting quality and design. Two favorites include the very chic Bag Fourteen (first photo) in Palomino. This gorgeouos top zip duffle ia uber soft and features custom double buckle detail on each side. The Belt Bag is a unique buckle belted classic hobo with detailed trim and accents. Both include wall and cell phone pockets, key clips, 100% cotton canvas lining, back zip pockets, protective metal feet etc and is available at the very chic Plaza Beauty at the Plaza Hotel Shops.

Rance’ Tuberose Soap

Tuberose Soap is made with an exotic full bodied Tuberose flower in the old style which molds turn each bar soap into a work of art. Rance’ soaps are enriched with natural essences and cosmetic oils. The Tuberose fragrance is so intoxicating – perfect for any mom who loves feminine floral fragrances. All Rance’ products can be purchased at The Plaza Beauty.

Skinny by Jessica Elliot Jewelry

Let your mom feel and look like a celebrity with one of these gorgeous pieces from the very chic and affordable jewelry collection from the brillant Jessica Elliot. Celebrities such as Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba, Christina Ricci, Hilary Swank, Katherine Heigl, Lindsay Lohan, etc are loving her pieces. Jessica mixes vintage glam with edgy femininity with her amazing intricate details highlighted. While shopping for your mom, you can try to get her Personalized Jewelry with a message or her name! She would surely love such a thoughtful gift. If you are tempted, you are most likely to get one or two pieces for yourself. Lots of her pieces have a personal touch to them and would make a wonderful Mother’s Day gif – I especially love this sweet Oval Vermeil “Colorful Words” mama Necklace

Borghese Bella Essenziale Gift Set

Sometimes trying to schedule a spa visit for a busy mom can be a chore, so why not have her spa at home. A little pampering after a long day can change anyone’s disposition and can turn a bad day into a heavenly one. The Bella Essenziale Mother’s Day Gift Set includes Effetto Immediato Spa-Comforting Cleanser, Fango Active Mud for Face and Body, Bagno di Vita Gentle Foaming Gel for Bath and Shower, CuraForte Moisture Intensifier, Fluido Protettivo Advanced Spa Lift for Eyes, Collezione D’Oro Siero Reparative Serum, 30 Botanico Eye Compresses Pads which all comes in a perfect summer Straw Tote. A great gift that on’t break the bank.

Joya FvsS: Composition No. 6 Parfum

This beauty is like an hierloom piece of jewelry. Fujian cypress, juniper berries, tangy yuzu, silken lotus leaves and blossoms, meadowgrass blended with rich cedarwood, saffron and amber are encased in this modern handcrafted black porcelain bottle with a 22k gold dipped wand. Your mom will absolutely keep this beautiful artistic piece on her vanity. Like Torregrossa and Rance’, Joya is also available at The Plaza Beauty.

Since I now have “To Sir, With Love” on repeat in my head, please enjoy here –

Happy singing and Happy Mother’s Day to all moms, mom-to-bes, grands, aunts, mentors, etc.
