If you haven’t started looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift yet, I suggest you get a move on it! Mother’s Day is this weekend and although we probably can’t do enough to show our moms how much we love them, a little something pretty wouldn’t hurt! My plan for my mom is to get some pretty things for the house that she’s been wanting and take her out for a delicious dinner! But if you’re stumped on what to get, here are some of my suggestions below!
Pom Pom at Home Montauk Throw • Pom Pom at Home : This comfy linen throw would be great for the mom that loves to lounge on the couch or dress up the foot of her bed!
Deux Lux Leyla Small Tote • Deux Lux : For the mom who’s always on the go, this tote makes a perfect companion that can carry everything she needs!
Gift Boutique Mom Mug : Gold handle and pretty calligraphy?! This mug has all the cute details along with holding mom’s favorite tea or coffee!
Voluspa Japonica French Cade & Lavender Embossed Glass Chawan Bowl Candle • Voluspa : Candles are perfect for the mom that needs some relaxation and pretty fragrances around the house.
La Mer ‘The Reparative Skintint’ Broad Spectrum Spf 30 – Light • La Mer : This is perfect for the mom that loves makeup and skincare!
LIZ CLAIBORNE Liz Claiborne Short-Sleeve Shirt and Pants Knit Pajama Set • Liz Claiborne: Pajama sets are always great gifts and you could even get a matching set so that you can both lounge and spend quality time together!
Summer is almost over so let’s take advantage of the time we have left and enjoy the beautiful weather and any beach time we can get! I live in Los Angeles, but I really don’t go to the beach that often. I’m going to try to go at least once or twice before the weather gets too cold for me to frolic around at the beach.
I’m the type to over pack, so when it comes to planning a beach day, I really make sure to bring everything I could possibly need! Below are some things that are essentials for a perfect beach day!
SANDALS: I’ve been loving tassels and fringes on everything, so on a sandal is completely necessary! The ones above are super cute and I love the taupe color that they come in.
BEACH TOTE: In order to bring snacks, a towel, sunblock, reading material, and whatever else you might need for a beach day, you’ll need a large beach tote. I love this fringed tote in a light chambray blue.
ROUND BEACH TOWEL: These round towels have been showing up EVERYWHERE and I’m loving it! I definitely recommend these for something to sit or lay on the sand. They also make great photo props!
DRESS: A dress is perfect as a beach coverup. I love just throwing on a simple dress so that it’s easy to slip on and off.
BIKINI: Off shoulder everything is super on trend right now, so why not have an off shoulder bikini top? I love this fluttery one in a light blue color.
SUNGLASSES: To protect your eyes from the bright sun, you’ll need a pair of really cool sunglasses to complete your beach outfit. Nothing like these classic pair of Raybans to do the job!
I hope you enjoyed my beach essentials list and make sure to add one more beach day to your schedule before summer is over!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and even though the boyfriend and I don’t generally celebrate or make it a big deal, it’s fun for me to think about different outfits for date nights! Here are a couple of outfit ideas that I would wear (maybe more of the bottom option), but I figured that I should come up with a dressier alternative!
The soft and feminine outfit has two pretty lace dresses in soft and neutral colors (just to give you options!). I love the lace details on both dresses and I love sleeves on dresses n general, so they were right up my alley. I can’t tell you how many lace dresses I have, but it never hurts to get more! 🙂
The cool and edge outfit is more of something I’d wear. The boyfriend and I don’t normally get super dressed up for our nights out, so you’ll usually find me in skinny jeans, a pretty blouse, and heels. I love very sleek and minimal outfits.
In the past year, I’ve been falling in love with anything with lace ups! It’s probably because I see them on so many Instagram accounts and they add both edge and femininity to an outfit. Whether it comes to heels, flats, or sandals, the more the better in my eyes! The only problem I run into is having to take them off and being that I live in an Asian household, we always have to take our shoes off when we enter a house. Now imagine having to unravel your laces from around your ankles and then putting it back on when you leave the house! But other than that, I cannot stop buying them and probably won’t fall out of love with this trend for a while!
What do you think? 🙂
Here are some of my picks for sandals this Summer. I love strappy sandals and the whole lace up trend right now, but I also threw in some sandals that you can just slip into easily! Nothing like a cute pair of sandals with a dress or denim shorts to make you Summer ready!
1. Maypol leather shoes
2. J.Crew leather shoes
3. Lucky brand shoes
4. J.Crew flat shoes
5. Madewell black shoes
