What I Got on Mother’s Day

The title of this post should be some of the things I got on Mother’s Day but I think – what I got on Mother’s Day sounds better.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers and mothers to be reading this. Being a parent comes with so much responsibility and you never really know what you are getting into until you become a parent. It is the hardest job in the world, without a doubt. But it is also the most rewarding job ever, and I won’t trade being a mother for anything.

It has been a beautiful day. My kids woke with up with songs and presents. I felt super special. I also got a full body massage today at Macdonald Hotel, thanks to the fam. It was just what I needed. I didn’t want the massage to end. But the beauty of the massage ending was that I got to spend some time in the Relaxation Room. It felt so serene in there.

Still on the gifts I received for Mother’s Day, I was super excited to receive this Julia Hollywood Mirror in White Gloss from hollywoodmirrors.co.uk. This makeup vanity mirror with lights is definitely going to transform my dressing area. It is such an amazing beauty. It features 10 cool white led light bulbs and a chic white gloss finish. I am so in love with it.


Wines from Aldi

I was also lucky enough to receive some bottles of wine from Aldi. These bottles of wine are perfect for Mother’s Day celebrations. I love all three and I am happy to say I would be popping one tonight. Can you guess which one?

Christmas Gift Ideas 2013

Here are my top 10 Christmas gift ideas for 2013.

1. Spa day at Macdonald Portal Hotel, Golf & Spa:

This gift just has to be the number one on my Christmas gift ideas list. My mum and I went for a Luxury Paradise Escape Spa Day for 2 at the Macdonald Portal Hotel today; it is one experience I won’t forget in a hurry. We had a fantastic time. It was an hour and 45 minutes of full body massage and facial. We also had a complimentary lunch and we had access to all the hotel’s facilities including the pool and sauna. It was a lovely experience and I will recommend the Macdonald Portal Hotel Spa to anyone.

You can get this for a loved one via Spa Seekers – http://www.spaseekers.com/macdonald-portal-hotel-golf-spa-chester/luxury-paradise-escape-spa-day-for-2


2. Chance by Chanel:

I love this floral fragrance. This will put a smile on almost every woman’s face. You can get this perfume from £48.


3. Bobbi Brown Basic Brush Collection:

This collection is an essential brush set for any makeup bag. It includes a foundation brush, face brush, concealer brush, eye liner brush, eye shadow brush and eyebrow brush. This will make a perfect Christmas gift. You can get this in House of Fraser and other stores for £144.


4. Remington Sapphire 2200W Hair Dryer:

I personally have my eye on this hair dryer. You can get this in most stores for just £39.99 but it is currently on sale in Argos for £29.99 which is quite affordable.


5. Rockstud Valentino Leather Tote:

This tough looking luxury bag will brighten up your wardrobe. I want it. It currently costs £1950 at Selfridges.


6. Uggs Mini Bailey Button:

This Uggs Mini Bailey Button goes for £140 and is a must have for this winter.


7. Hollshi Embellished Collar Cape by Ted Baker:

This beautiful cape will wake up any wardrobe. It costs £269. I will want this as a Christmas gift. What do you think?
