“We are born of Love; Love is our Mother”  – Rumi. 

It’s now a week to our Mothering Sunday, it’s always a day I’ve enjoyed. Its had more significance since I’ve become a mother myself. This will be my third Mother’s Day and I’m sad to say I won’t spend it with Tom or my Mam. (Yikes!) I’ll be on a school trip to Liverpool. We will celebrate, when I get back. Last year, I offered up a gift guide that you can read here. We celebrated with Brunch in San Lorenzo’s on George’s street. (I recommend it…) This year I haven’t yet decided how to treat my mam…

BEAUTY CONSULTATION:

Warren Dowdall is one of Brown Thomas’ Beauty Stylist team. You can book a consultation with him and the cost is redeemable against products. WIN/WIN! You can check out the packages available here.

PERFUME:

My Mam’s signature scent is Chanel No.5, I wouldn’t dream of buying her anything else. I think if someone has a signature scent, a matching soap or body lotion is a nice touch. If your buying a gift of fragrance to someone who doesn’t have their own scent… Try Jo Malone. I’m loco for JM at the moment.

DELICATE JEWELRY:

These layered gold necklaces are DA BOMB! I’m loving dainty pieces piled on! These are A Box for my Treasure!

Handmade Gifts:

It’s funny, any gift I’ve ever made my Mam she loves. At Christmas I put together an Advent tree of small gifts, she loved it. While luxurious gifts are always lovely and a treat, something that has taken thought, time and effort can’t be matched!

Shopping & Movie:

Anyone that knows me knows I’m happiest when I’m shopping…it’s my cardio…even when the shopping is for others. It soothes me. A little shopping followed with a movie is great, something my mam and I both love.

{A side note, my two cents on Fifty Shades, I really think it got a raw deal. As a movie lover, I’ve seen much worse! I didn’t expect it to be a masterpiece. I took it at face value, a sexy erotic flick with pretty people. Will I watch it again…NO…Do I want to see the next one…YES!}

Whatever you do to celebrate your Mam, remember having her with you next Sunday is a gift, having her around all the other days of the year is the best of all. Spare a thought for those who don’t have their Mam’s around anymore. We’re the lucky ones…

❤️ Siobhan.
