Mother’s Day Gift Ideas 2014

Like in most countries in the world, Mother's Day in Australia is celebrated on the second Sunday of the month May, which this year is the 11th May, just two weeks away. Although I wasn't technically a Mum last year, Hubby was really sweet last year spoiling me by giving me pressies from both him, or dogs and also from our unborn baby boy….but this year is my first mother’s day, so it is a little exciting...

My mum lives in Europe, and as it often takes a long time to post parcels across the pond, I have already posted her pressie off a few weeks ago, but still, I thought that I’d share with you a few gift ideas for pressies that I’d personally love to receive;


Clinique Happy in Bloom
I absolutely adore the original Clinique Happy fragrance and have gone through a few bottles over the years, so I love this new limited addition which promises to be sweeter, softer, brighter. And how gorgeous is this pretty bottle!

bhave Professional Hair Care Hair Repair Essentials
