MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE 2018

gift for mom

So many Mothers are notorious for putting others before themselves, enduring many sacrifices over time, and conducting grand acts of unconditional love for their children without expecting anything in return.  That’s why I decided to put together this Mother’s Day gift guide to give those Moms the pampering they truly deserve.   

When it comes to gift giving, I strive to purchase items that will be used and appreciated rather than something that will just get stacked in a closet or buried in a junk drawer.  To me, the more thought you put into a gift, the more valuable it becomes no matter how much you spend.

The items that I’ve listed below are things that I know my Mother would love, but would rarely ever buy for herself.  I’ve put together a few different themes to keep in mind when picking out a gift for Mom.

BEACH: Will she be going on a summer vacation soon?  A new beach bag, hat, and/or Turkish towel would be the perfect gift to get her beach ready and it will be one less thing she has to find before her trip.

SPA:  Oil diffusers, candles, and calming bath soaks are a Godsend at the end of a long day especially to the newer Moms out there. Wanna kick it up a notch? Insert her favorite wine and she will be relaxing in no time!

COZY:  You can never go wrong with a super soft pair of pajamas and beautiful slippers.  These are the last thing on Mom’s lists to buy for themselves.  Add a throw blanket in for extra coziness.

JEWELRY:  A simple piece of jewelry and a pretty trinket box or tray to put them in will always remind them of you.

LEATHER GOODS: Help Mom stay organized in style with a zipper pouch to keep her go-to makeup items and tote needs, a notebook in a pretty hue, and a sleek pen to match.  Wallets, card holders, and key fobs are great too.  Just try to keep them within the same color story.

These are just a few ideas, but feel free to mix and match a candle with a blanket, a straw tote with a leather pouch, slippers with a bath soak…. you get the idea.  The possibilities are endless and she’ll love that it came from you!

Cheers-  Ashley Nicole

  • Lately, I’ve been feeling like I’ve been so disconnected... I’ve been healing and I apologize that I’ve not been as lively over here, but I’ve been dealing with my own dilemmas. I’ve had two accounts of death from cancer just recently. One I kind of set myself up for because I knew there was no cure and another that was totally unexpected... it’s been a rough ride, but I’m still here and I’m happy and thankful that I can be there for others during these hard times. If you are dealing with anything like this feel free to reach out to me. I would love to help support you and always sending love and light your way! .

  • Here is some advice for all my SINGLE LADIES out there! 
Earlier today, I had a discussion with some younger co-workers of mine and I feel like you may relate and probably need to be told this so keep reading! One of the girls stated that she’s never had a good relationship and wanted to meet a nice guy. 
Another girl made a remark about the kind of guys she dated when she was her age and then asked me what kind of relationships I had when I was the other girl’s age and I told them the truth. I dated a very nice guy for 4 1/2 years when I was her age. At one point, I honestly thought that we would marry someday, but I was so young/still trying to figure out who I was and what I wanted my adult life to be like. Eventually we didn’t agree on the same things and grew apart. It ended well and I wish him well. Later after I had a few relationships, that also did not last and it was all for good reason. I feel like I was able to learn something from my past relationships that allowed me to be ready when I was meant to meet my husband which I have been married to for 10 years now. So the next time you look back at those past relationships and you’re looking for a nice guy, just know you’re one relationship closer to meeting the one and when you do you will know it and you will be ready for it! Just know your worth and never lower your standards because you feel like you have to to make it work. Always stay true to yourself because if you’re not, it will not be you they have fallen in love with. Like @arianagrande sings...Thank you, NEXT!

  • Lately, I’ve been reading a ton of wellness articles about the benefits of collagen powder and how women in their 30’s produce less collagen naturally which can start to effect your skin and so on. Ever since I read that. Ive been wanting to give it a try... The one I chose to put to the test is called Gym and Tonic and it’s a collagen protein powder by @tonicproducts 
I started adding 2 scoops into my blueberry banana smoothies in the mornings which has been so great because I’m guilty of never eating breakfast unless it’s brunch or brinner and I’m always rushing to get out the door and to work on time! 
Not only is it free of soy, dairy, gluten, and artificial hormones, but you can also rest assured that their ingredients have all been responsibly sourced. And here’s the bonus, it contains 18 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own which combined will help with hair, skin, nail growth, joint pain, and good gut health! Winning!

So glad I finally tried it, and I will def be adding it into my daily routine. 
P.S. I’ve shared a Mango Smoothie Pop recipe in my stories/highlights that this would be perfect in x beating the summer heat with a sweet treat! 😉
