I’m not one you would call “a person who plans ahead”. I may have a vague outline of what I want to do, but it never fully comes to fruition until, say….right when it needs to get done? Yeah, so gifting sometimes ends up the same way. Maybe, just maybe you are a little like me, so I thought I would give you some ideas that you can run out and grab and still look like you “planned” that gift to make your Momma feel special. I promise I won’t tell her any different.Oh, and just an FYI, these really are things I’m considering for my momma, based on what she likes. And, yes, I’m willing to pay the expedited shipping charges if I decide on one of the online products. The price of being a procrastinator. *sigh*
Estee Lauder’s Golden Alligator Compact
“The Golden Alligator Compact is a sleek, stunning compact ideal for the on-the-go touchups throughout the day. The textured, refillable golden compact hold Lucidity Translucent Pressed Powder to provide a luminous, fresh finish.”
This compact is so pretty, I am certain my mom would be whipping this out to touch up more times a day than nescessary. It is available at counters and online for $33.
Laura Geller “Eye Dream of Italy” Deluxe Baked Kit
Well, I sure can’t send my momma to Italy for Mother’s Day, but maybe I can bring a bit of Italy to her. Laura Geller went to Italy and was inspired to create this kit of baked goodies for $60, available on QVC.
My momma just loves Laura’s products & I have even swiped some of her eyeshadow’s for myself.
Mally Beauty Travel Time Diva Collection
I can not say enough good things about Mally Roncal and her products. (*Would this be a great time to remind you that I had a chance to meet her last fall? I think so.) Seriously, her products really are good – I have been rocking her volumizing mascara for a while now. Remind me to tell you more about it….
Anyway, Mally has this “Travel Time Diva Collection” for $65 on QVC. It includes her fab mascara, 2 Starlight eyeliners (*love), lip glosses & a lip fence in a little bag so your mom can be out the door, running around like the Diva she is.
Marc Jacobs Daisy EDT scent
Let me say that when I had a chance to try this out I knew *immediately* why it was a multi-award winner. It just smells that good. It’s fresh, clean, light, but not in an overly floral annoying way, in my opinion. (*of course, we know I don’t know too much about fragrance “notes”). And, because my favorite color is Blue, I was all about the bottle, too.
So, since I am greedy and know that I don’t wanna share this with my momma, but I’m nice enough to want to make sure she knows how good it is, I may be picking up a bottle at Sephora for $57.
Elizabeth Arden Anniversary “Red Door” Candle
Do you remember me talking about the Limited Edition “Red Door Red” lipstick that Elizabeth Arden came out with to celebrate their 100th Anniversary? Well, they also came out with this candle that smells like “Red Door” and is in a porcelain canister that can be saved after the fact. It runs $29.50 online and I’m not certain if they are at counters or not.
Now, “Red Door” is my Momma’s *favorite* scent to wear, this is a FACT. So, when I had the chance to try this, I KNEW one of the things that Momma was going to get. I say this so that if your Momma is like mine, and you have probably gotten her a bottle of “Red Door” in the past, she will love this to scent her room, instead of spraying her scent all over everything instead of herself, just to make everything smell nice. Plus, she’ll like she can keep the canister, too.
