This week we have been giving you a helping hand with Mother's Day gift ideas and today I continue the trend with an overhaul of products I reviewed just for the special day! 

Bath  Body Works Mothers Day Candle certified fabulous

1) I will start with a classic gift that most anyone loves and last longer than a bouquet of flowers, yet will make the room smell like flowers...candles! There is an amazing new candle just for Mother's Day from Bath & Body Works: Love Mom "Bright Bouquet" candle. A 3-wick candle with a beautiful blend of floral, citrus and the perfect hint of mint! The presentation is beautiful and the scent is SO amazing! I only have to have it lit for about 30 minutes and my whole house is filled with the sweet scent of flowers like I had an entire garden in my living room! sPerfect for a mother-in-law you are meeting for the first time, a mom who loves to scent her home, a mom who loves flowers...most anyone really. I love it so much and you can't go wrong with a scented candle as a gift!


05082013 Mary Kay Facial Highlighting Pen Certified Fabulous2) A non-typical gift for Mother's Day, but something she wants but would never ask for! The Mary Kay: Highlighting Pen! The pen has sspecial light-reflecting pigments that optically “lift” the shadowy areas of your face. Instantly your skin looks brighter, your tone more even and your face more radiant. I love this pen because it is so easy to use and blends perfectly. It doesn't clump when it's mixed over my foundation on my face and glides easily with the twist on the bottom which dispenses liquid through the brush. Sweep it under your eyes to brighten your eye area and hide dark circles or you can even use it on other areas of your face that create shadow, like smile lines around the mouth. Also great to use on your lower lip / chin crease area. I use it on top of my foundation but it can also be used as the first step before foundation or worn alone. This is perfect for the mom that wears makeup, is looking to brighten her face and hide age sports/ dark circles, or the new mom :) It is a little secret weapon that every woman should have in their makeup bag or purse.

05082013 My Mother My Heart Necklace Picture Certified Fabulous3) A modern twist on a classic gift that is sure to make mom feel treasured and special with a few tears of joy included! Jewelry is an obvious gift and one that usually puts a sparkle in an eye. Jewelry is also a very personal thing and something that has to be bought when you really know the person, or at least their taste and style choices! For an example, I hate gold, so if someone were to buy me a piece of gold jewelry I would most-likely never wear it or wear it around the person who gave it to me a few times. You don't want your jewelry dollars to go to wast on something that will never be worn! A solution that is bound to be loved by every mom is a modern twist on classic jewelry from Waxing Poetic. With many great neutral tone and two-tones metals it is easy to find a gift any mom will cherish! Gorgeous designs and sweet sayings engraved, there is no doubt your gift will be the winner this year. They have jewelry specifically for mom's or you can browse other collections to find just the right style. I also fell in love with their Axiom Leather Band Bracelets with says of inspiration and motivation, like "Bravery Lies Within Me" and "Let Go Move Forward". You can even customize your own piece! This is a fail-proof gift for any occasion. Perfect for the mom that loves jewelry,  has recently lost a loved one or just needs some encouragement or words to remind her how much you really do care...even when you don't show it as much as you should, she will always have this to remind her.


Champneys Spa Indulgence Distant Shores Body Scrub Certified Fabulous

 4 & 5) Going out for spa treatments is nice, but if you don't feel like leaving the house an At-Home Spa can be just as grand! Champney spa gift collections come in different options for the ultimate spa at home. Collections include: Mediterranean Bliss Mini Travel Kit, Bubble Heaven Collection and Distant Shores Collection. A seasoned expert in tranquility with there Spa's in England, Champneys is making it possible for people across the U.S. to experience the luxury of total relaxation in the comfort of their own home, every day. The collections within the Spa Indulgence and Spa Treatments were developed to help deliver the holistic benefits of visiting a Champneys Spa within the comfort of your own home. I took home the Champneys Spa Indulgence Distant Shores Body Scub and Body Butter and although I was in my cramped closet of a bathroom, I was able to treat myself to a very relaxing Champneys Spa Indulgence Distant Shores Body Butter Certified Fabulousrest and relaxation escape! The packaging is very elegant and the product itself is very luxourious I felt like I was giving myself a treat when I used it. The scrub was a perfect mix of salt and oils to be able to get a good exfoliation but still keep me hydrated with a non-greasy sheen once it's rinsed off.A blend of grapefruit, lemon and orange peel oils, mango and passion fruit extracts give off a soothingtropical sensation to the senses and instantly puts you at ease. Finishing up with the Distant Shores Body Butter was the ultimate combination because it maintained the moisture the scrub left me with and carried on the glorious scent I had been using. Best used right out of the bath or shower to get maximized moistuiztion locked in! This is perfect for the mom that needs a break with some R & R and new mom's, busy mom's and mom's with more than one child. The variety collections also cater to traveling mom's with their traveling kits. Many gift options for anybody, because people have to shower at some point, right? Might as well do it in style :) (also found at Target)

I hope you all have a great Mother's Day if you are a mom, going to visit your mom or step-mom or mother-in-law or special woman who is like a mother to you :) 

What are you Mother's Day plans??

Until next week, Keep On Being Beautiful You!
