Today I am continuing with another instalment of my Mother's Day gift ideas, which I hope you enjoy and feel make it a little easier to pick that special gift for Mum. If you've missed the previous parts, you can checkout out Part One, and Part Two and Part Three 

If she wants to look after her damaged locks a little better, than this Repair set from Schwarzkopf Bonacure will have her hair back to optimum health in no time. The gift set includes a shampoo and conditioner, which aims to treat hair that has been damaged from too much heat, colouring and straightening, thanks to containing a Cell Perfector and Reversilane technology. These products will helps repair hair at a cellular level, promising to reverse one to three years of damage with just one application, replenishing the inner structure of the hair, while sealing individual strands with anti breakage protection, for a stronger hair with up to 90% less breakage!

For my long and coloured hair the Schwarzkopf Professional Bonacure Repair products are the perfect fit, and I could immediately, from the very first tell how gentle the shampoo was, leaving my hair feeling soft and clean after easy wash. And following with the intensely nourishing conditioner, just a few moments with this treatment, which my hair immediately drinks up, and my hair is not only so much easier to comb out afterwards, but it is also left looking and feeling so much softer and not to mention shinier and healthier, also because ends seem less dry too, and frizziness significantly reduced - and all without leaving my hair feeling heavy or weighed down. 

If she is always on the go, and cares about being fit and healthy, then clothing from Svvet would be the ultimate choice. Svvet is the perfect gear, regardless if you are into yoga, running, the gym, or simply chilling at home, as this clothes simply stays put, no more clothes that hike up, or is uncomfortable due to annoying seams.

The Svvet Leggins are designed with a high waist that supports your shape (and tucks in those flabby mummy bits too!), and unlike other workout pants, these Svvet ones do not have the middle seam, but rather the stitching is directed away from the centre to make them both more flattering and also more comfortable. Plus the more heavy duty, thicker and stretchier material means that it simply moves with your body, and offers support where you need it most. The pants are available in both full length, 7/8 length, 3/4 length and short length and are made from moisture-wicking fabric that keeps you dry and fresher for longer, while the mesh behind the knees helps the skin breathe. The seamless design also has silicone bands inside the legs to make them stay in place as you move, double layer around the waist and pant area as well as a higher waist for extra support and stability. Heading towards the cooler months, my pick would be the full length pants, which are really comfortable and really makes me feel good.

The Svvet range also includes grey or red tank tops, sleeveless tops or short sleeved tops, made from the same high quality materials, that helps support where needed and keep you dry and fresh. I particularly love the short sleeved top, which has a gorgeous high cut raglan sleeve, and a scoop neck. It also features a double-layered bra area for extra support, as well as it is tighter around the bottom to keep it in place and stop it from riding up, while it is a little looser around the middle to make it more comfortable, and not to mention it means it won't draw attention to any mummy-muffin-top either. The red shade is so stunning and this is truly so comfortable to wear, and it looks so stylish too, that I can see myself wearing with a pair of jeans too! You really haven't tried active wear until you've tried Svvet, which sets a whole new bar for comfort and functionality!

If your loved one is always on the go, then she'll love this tiny and compact, yet super advanced portable bluetooth speaker from Altec Lansing. This Mini H20 II, is waterproof, dustproof, shockproof, and even floats should you drop it in the pool, and it is so slim, and lightweight that it fits easily into your handbag without weighing it down. Or if you're like me, the carabineer makes it easy to attach to pram or the handbag when you're out and about too. And as it has 6 massive 6 hours battery life, you'll be bobbing away to your music for hours on the go. But wait, that's not all - the Mini H20 II naturally plays your music very clearly, but it also features voice confirmation and an onboard microphone for clear, hands-free communication when you pair it with your mobile, and the simple control panel makes it easy to both adjust the volume as well as navigating tracks. So brilliant that you'd never want to be without it again. Available in red, turquoise-blue, black and cool grey.


A new perfume will never go astray, so how about this new Roberto Cavalli Paradiso Assoluto, which includes Pink Pepper and Wisteria in the top notes, Wild jasmine and Red Lily in the middle notes, and Pachouli, Sandalwood and Vanilla in the base notes. This is a such a gorgeous floral scent thanks to the jasmine, lily, patchouli and wisteria, while the sandalwood and vanilla leaves a creamy softness and sweetness that is however not too sweet either thanks to the Pink Pepper. I am not personally fond of too sweet nor too spicy scent, but this one has it just right, with its floral blend with just a touch of sweetness and a hint of spiciness. This is such a gorgeous scent, and while it is strong, for me, it is a perfect day time scent too as it lasts all day. I also love the stunning bottle which is shaped like a faceted diamond, shaded in colours of red and orange, so beautiful that it will look incredible on any dresser.

You're probably used to give Dad a bottle of 'grog' for Father's Day, but why not also give her something indulgent she’ll enjoy too. The Solerno blood orange liqueur made from Sicilian Blood Oranges would be a perfect choice. It is zesty and refreshing, and so delicious. You can drink it on the rocks over just ice, or mixed with soda-water and adding ice, and perhaps a slice of orange for a refreshing change> or you can even enjoy it as an orange affogato by taking a capful or two of Solerno and pour it over a scoop of vanilla icecream, and spooning over a shot of espresso, topping it off with a sprinkling of chocolate and perhaps a touch of orange zest for a restaurant worthy look. This would have to be my fave way to 'drink' Solerno.

And don't forget to add a personalised handwritten card for her. This premium card featured is an acrylic board with a card on the back from the Hallmark's Signature Collection, and along with the "LOVE YOU MORE" has the beautiful writing inside "More than yesterday, More than anything, More every single day", simple yet beautiful. She'll absolutely love this.
