Whoop it's officially the weekend and that means a day of dedicated fun and pampering is just around the corner for us mamas, or at the very least a nice card and a bunch of blooms *hint hint ;)
If there's any excuse to get dressed up and have fun then I'm ya girl. So I thought it would be fun to put together a little 'Pretty in Pink' inspired Mother's day style with some cute 'n' cool gifts that complete the look...oh and did I mention helium balloons? Nothing spreads happiness like giant balloons, I've had so many people smiling and asking what I was celebrating while out with these.
I got this skirt in the winter sale at New Look and loved how different it was to anything else I owned, it's quite unlike me as I often don't go for the girly look but I though t it would be great for spring, this one is also cute. I paired it with this fun pink Jewel top that I made – post to come on that one – and this sweet denim jacket, as denim everything seems to be on trend at the moment and looks set to last until summer.
Last week I went along to the Pandora event in London with some fab mama's to celebrate Mother's Day early, I got a sneak peek at their new Essence range and swooned over the collection, each charm unique with an inscribed value. I was drawn to Intuition as I tend to use mine for everything, but I also liked Positivity, Love, Joy and Faith. I love how intricate the charm is but how simple the bracelet looks, isn't it cute!
Also these London Retro sunglasses c/o Glasses Direct are perfect for spring and you can choose the frames online with your prescription and they'll be delivered straight to your door, hassle free *win*. Oh an London Retro has teamed up with jewellery designer Nicholas King to produce a limited edition range of statement eye wear to support the eye care charity Orbis – pioneers in global eye health – with all profits being donated to the Charity. So guilt free shopping ;)
I've been dying for an excuse to take pics in front of these pillars with their bright pops of colours, and even though I got some weird looks and beeping horns when taking the pics under a bypass, I had so much fun running around with a giant X and O balloon – A.K.A hugs and kisses – and acting like a kid again, oh and these fun stickers from the Line Camera app are ace!
I've ordered my own mama *mum look away* a Big Fat Box of goodies full of beautiful photo's of precious moments for her to keep at home, isn't the box gorgeous! Also she's going to love this Wensley Woven Scarf from Joules, plus it's in the sale if you want to get in your mama's good books for less!
What plans do you have for Mother's Day? Whatever it is I hope you get a lie in, a hand made card and treat like a king ;) Have a fabulous one!
*Thanks to Pandora for gifting me this gorgeous bracelet.
