Top Ten Chic Mothers Day Gift Ideas

So, you do realise Mother’s Day is fast approaching? 

As a first time mummy, it's my first one and I'm unreasonably excited. It's only since having Theo that I realise quite how much mothers do. The caring touches, the little sacrifices and the hard decisions. It's not that we'd do it any other way- it would hurt us not to- but my eyes have been opened to how much the job entails now it's mine. 

As I always say to my husband, there's a reason full time nannies get handsomely paid! The job is full on, it's messy, it's frequently anti-social hours, but we love it. So let's celebrate all things fabulously mummy for one day.

I've compiled a list of beautiful Mother’s Day gift ideas to share.

Finding time to hit the high street is really hard at the moment, so I've teamed up with, purveyors of stylish homewares and gifts with taste, to pick out the best ideas for chic presents that will please a stylish mama.

Some are big, some are small and all are made with love. I would love to receive any of these and I'm sure any mother would too.

Dove DermaSeries Face Cleanser | Review

Dove - remember them? Not that they ever went away anywhere, but the brand seemed to have slipped entirely off my radar in the last few years.

I remembered their stuff as good, but uninspiring - reliable but not something I was likely to pick out from shelves full of more exciting, innovative options.

That was until I happened to try this face wash. And the Dove Dermaseries Ultra Caring Gentle Cream Face Cleanser is a bit of a game changer for me. 

Here's why it should be the next thing you add to your shopping basket...

OOTD: The LBD | Luxemme Dress Review

Can a girl ever have too many little black dresses? I'm of the opinion that's a definite no! Timeless, classic, stylish and with the adaptability to be dressed up or down LBDs endure as we can make them a mirror to reflect our changing lives and style - the perfect, flattering blank canvas.

Important meeting? LBD. Hot first date? LBD. Coffee with friends? LBD.

Long live little black dresses!

So today I'm trying out a new one from a cutting edge brand - the Anita from fast fashion label Luxemme.

Irresistable Me Clip In Extensions | Review

Thick, lustrous, long locks would be on most girls’ cosmic wishlists.

But however much certain shampoo brands would like to convince us that they’ll work that kind of magic, really the only way to give your hair the Disney Princess treatment is good quality extensions.

And when it comes to hair, you generally get what you pay for.

Synthetic hair can be sort of okay, and I've had it in the past, but getting a colour match is harder, the shininess gives it away as fake in good daylight, and however careful you are, you generally end up with a tangled, knotted mess after a few uses. Cheap hair shows.

Makeup Revolution Ultra Aqua Brow Tint | Review

In a recent Makeup Revolution haul, I picked the Ultra Aqua Brow Tint which is a dupe for the far more expensive Makeup Forever Aqua Brow.

Makeup Revolution are amazing at releasing fast moving dupes for cutting edge products, and they're usually fantastic quality as well.

Now, I haven't tried this kind of brow product before, so I was quite intrigued to give it a go.

It's a gel like cream that comes in a small squeeze tube. The amount you need to do both brows is minuscule, so this tube would last forever.
