Make Mom Smile

Hello! I am so glad you are here. In case you're like me and can't keep up with what day it currently is, let me tell 'ya a little secret: Mother's Day is Sunday, 5/10! That's just a little over a week away - and this year, kids won't be coming home with cute projects from school to use as gifts. But no worries, I've got you! In this special Mother's Day edition blog post, I'm lining up a few of my current fave picks that are sure to make any Mom smile and feel loved.

Right now, a little time to myself + routine help me to feel grounded so that I can continue to pour into those around me. This can be easily achieved with a great skincare routine or at-home spa night. Beautycounter has you covered with products that perform and also don't have potentially harmful ingredients including carcinogens and hormone disrupters. Skincare routines are highly personal, but a few of my faves that you can't go wrong with are:

Beautycounter's All Bright Vitamin C Serum - this happy bottle makes me smile just looking at it, and the performance is even better! Brighten up with this game-changing serum. This ultra-potent 10% blend of two forms of vitamin C instantly brightens skin and helps reduce the appearance of existing dark spots, while antioxidant-rich turmeric and camu camu extracts help protect against new ones. The formula also helps defend skin from the damaging effects of environmental stressors—revealing a more youthful-looking complexion. Shop here.

This lipgloss is the best gloss I have ever used - and I've used a lot of different brands. One swipe of this moisturizing gloss saturates lips in beautifully sheer color and high-impact shine. Infused with a delectable natural vanilla flavor and featuring a unique teardrop applicator, this formula goes on smoothly with no stickiness. This peony color is universally flattering and gives a polished tone without being overpowering. Shop here.

Got a mom who loves smelling pretty? Check out Phlur - my favorite fragrance company that creates beautiful perfumes and products without any of the potentially harmful ingredients or fillers. Even better, you can order this cute sample pack to gift that includes a coupon on a full-size bottle. Shop here.

I did an entire post on Nominal Goods (read here!), and their products would make fantastic gifts for Mother's Day! Gift mom a relaxing soak (with peace and quiet!) and she will come out refreshed and radiant. Shop here.

Flowers never fail, and especially not when they're unique stunners like these! My absolute favorite flowers are Farmgirl Flowers - stunningly unusual arrangements, with bold colors and blooms, while also using ethically farmed flowers. Check them out here.
