Mother’s Day Gift Guide!

Hi Everyone!

Today is May 1st (Happy May!) which means mother’s day is just around the corner. Mothers can be some of the hardest people to shop for, mostly because they are older, wiser, and probably have everything they will ever need. Plus, they probably taught you all you know about shopping and you could therefore never shop for them better than they could shop for themselves. This my friends, is where the sentimental gift comes in handy.

I have some advice for all you ladies out there shopping for your mothers, mothers-in-law, daughters, and daughters-in-law:

Now that that is settled, I’ve chosen a few very cute and extremely mom-appropriate items to ease your mother’s day anxiety. All of these have the option to have that special ladies initials on it, so she gets that warm fuzzy feeling every time she goes to use it. As one of my favorite moms Reese Witherspoon once  said “If it isn’t move, monogram it!”

1. Monogrammed velvet slippers so your mom of choice can walk around all day and night feeling like royalty; stubbsandwootton.com.

2. Fun monogramed floppy hat just in time for spring, so mom can have a picnic and still keep her skin looking lovely for years to come; swoozies.com.

3. Monogrammed diamond cut whiskey decanter for those mothers who love to entertain, or just love whiskey; thestationerystudio.com.

4. Moon and Lola Script Gold Monogram Necklace for the stylish mom of any age; moonandlola.com.

5. Wooden monogrammed cutting board from so even when mom is tired of cooking dinner, she knows her family loves her; tuesdaymorning.com.

6. Cashmere Initial and Blocks Blanket can be customized with any initial and is the perfect gift for the home, always soft and full of love; butterscotchblankees.com.

Happy mothers day!

During the Holidays we did a Butterscotch Blankees Review. If you read the review you will see how much I love personalized gifts and how impressed I was with the quality and workmanship on these blankets. Now you can begin to imagine how absolutely ecstatic I was that they wanted to take part in our #BabyLove event!

Aren’t these baby hats absolutely adorable?

Since I am not going to find out what baby is I decided to choose a personalized blanket for Princess Dot. Her birthday was coming up and she keeps stealing RyRy’s Butterscotch Blankee so I knew she would love one of her own!

These blankets come in the cutest packaging ever! They look just like a piece of butterscotch candy and are perfect for gift giving on birthdays, holidays, baby showers or just because.

When we received it I actually got a little misty eyed. It’s PERFECT! I love the way her name looks on her owl blanket just like I loved the way Rylen’s looked on his Personalized Guitar Blanket. I think Dot’s face says exactly how she felt about receiving her adorable owl blanket. She was so excited!

The quality is absolutely amazing, there are absolutely no flaws and I’m super excited to say that the blankets wash up very nicely. There is absolutely no shrinkage or fading, so the blanket you receive looks just as nice once it’s washed. These blankets are going to last for a very long time!

During my last review I stated that “The quality is absolutely amazing! I have received other personalized blankets before and none of them are as perfect, soft, cuddly and amazing as Butterscotch Blankees! There are no flaws on the front or back. The print is clear and readable, she even spelled Ry’s name right and it looks awesome on the blanket!”
For Dot’s blanket I can ditto that statement 100%, well with the exception of that she spelled Zylie’s name right on her blanket.

I really wish they made giant blankets for my bed because I may or may not try to cuddle with Ry or Dot’s blankets! They do offer 400 or 1000 count Duvet and/or Shams for purchase but I love these handcrafted blankets more.

Modern Love

Hi Guys,

Happy Sunday! Today I am spending the day watching the finals of Wimbledon and surfing around my new favorite website obsession, design-milk.com.

Image

The website was actually recommended to me when I signed up for WordPress as a blog to follow. Well, WordPress apparently knows me better than I know myself.  I would have never sought this website out on my own, but when I saw the quality of the content,  I just had to keep reading!

This website focuses on the hottest trends in modern design, and they focus a lot on modern home decor. My personal style is very traditional, and actually very preppy if I’m being honest. Home decor that inspires me the most has always been Ralph Lauren. So classic and clean. If anyone were to walk in my house they would know it is far too late for me to go modern with my home. I do love the style though, especially the bright colored furniture. I hope you all can expand your view of what is chic and luxurious, and check out this site. Below is a small portion of things I saw today, my personal favorites. If you want to learn more about each item, just click through as I’ve added the links.

Mr Smith the Second is a multi-colored laminated beech chair by UK furniture designer Anthony Hartley.
