For the Picture Perfect Mom!

How about giving Mom a beautiful picture of yourself? She'll love it. And she'll love you more when she is surprised when she opens the little box that your picture sits upon. As this little box is actually a palette, The Picture Perfect Palette from celebrity artist Carol Shaw.

md_lorac.jpg Wow. Wow. and Wow!  What's not to love in this palette?  It contains four striking eye shadow's, the perfect shade of blush, and the ultimate mini mascara.
The eye shadow shades: Persuasion - a creamy beige with sheen, Spice -  a shimmering café au lait, and Dreamy - a shimmering slate grey; the blush is in Plum Rose - a soft, muted rose; and the mini mascara is in Black. Also included is a double-ended eye shadow brush and a blush brush to help you apply these beauties.

If you were to purchase these LORAC products separately, it would cost you $120 - but this is just $37.  Couple that with the fact that the picture is priceless, Mom will love, love, love it. 

Sephora has it. Hopefully your Mom will too. Mine sure will!

For the Manicured Mom.

My Mother drives me insane when it comes to nail care. She ONLY gets pedicures in the Summer, and never even had a manicure. I sometimes wonder where I came from!!!

Just in case your Mom is different than mine and loves to pamper her nails, I have found a real treat for her.

P.S. Don't let her think you are insinuating anything with the name of the collection or shade names.

Spring Candles.

Candles may not be the most personal gift, but they are a nice gift for possibly an aunt or grandmother, especially when you do not want to make a huge production out of it.

One of my favorite candle companies is Lumiere. All of Lumiere's candles are hand poured daily from the best ingredients by skilled artisans. They use only the best quality ingredients and use their exquisite craftsmanship required to make an exceptional product.

They are offering a new Spring Collection, that is so in tune to the season. In this set are 3 - 4oz. candles in the scents of Lilacs in Rain, Chamomile & Lavender, and Fresh Air. This collection retails for $30.00.

You can shop for this collection and many more of Lumiere's beautifully scented candles at The Luxury Candle Company.
