Etsy Obsessions

My most recent internet dwellings have resided in a paradise of playful + punchy discoveries!!! Etsy has officially been named the MRS' ultimate retail therapy. I cannot begin to express these items i've encountered - each fulfilling their every duty as my profound sanity-saver and spiritual grounder. The Pool Boy Bell that really rings can seriously make my heart stop beating but my lungs still sing! The flamingo wall decals, the pom beach attire - the brilliant circular beach blankets that fulfill my daily desires!!! I need it all, I must, I really REAAAALLLY do! Have I gone utterly mad or are YOU obsessed TOO?!

All I want for Mother's Day...

Oh, STOP! It's not like I'm asking for a villa in the south of France! Just a few tokens of love and appreciation to reward my mothering stance. And really, who WOULDN'T want all of the above?! To be gifted with such reckless abandon, is the greatest sign of love! Plus, asking a mom to pick just ONE wish, is really rather repressive - you couldn't even bear the thought of making mommy feel burdened or depressive! So, take my advice and just gift her the whole ludicrous lot of loot - She'll feel so loved, appreciated, and utterly wooed!

I've thus granted you permission to step up your glammy game - go on and try it on for size, I promise your life will never be the same!!!

DO IT!!!

Fall Scents of 2013

Per my very sad + very empty shelf where fabulous scents once stood tall and proud, I had no other choice but to go on one very serious hunt. Lets face it, a hardy sock can temporarily hush the stench of a smelly foot but body odor, now that can be one hell of a locomotor. Every gal must do as follows: swipe on the best of the best deodorants (like this one!), pick a "parfum" of the season, do 3-4 sprays + remember, where there's a rhyme there's a reason!! Any and every true lady knows the importance of a good, classy scent...i've never regretted a scent dollar i've spent! So I bestow on you, the fully fab-proofed scents of fall that are all undoubtedly #MRSapproved!  



Oh Joy // What To Give a New Mrs. Momma

"When your friend or loved on has a new baby, I like to make their life easier in any small way I can by keeping the new parents well-fed. Since I'm often in another city or state and unable to bring over a homemade meal, I love sending something to their front door that's ready to go or super easy to make. They will love it and thank you when they're so wrapped up in their new baby bliss that they've forgotten to eat!

Make breakfast easy with fancy pancake mix and Stu's Bloody Mary Mix. For lunch (or really any time of day), give them a selection cheeses and charcuterie that she couldn't have while pregnant. Finally, give them a little night cap with a good decaf coffee and special delivery of Jeni's Ice cream."

Le Royal Bebe

Planning on sending a gift for the Royal babe? Need some direction on what's considered "royal taste"? I've pulled a few classics from the vault - goodies that are certain to bring any mothering duchess to a screeching halt. Let it be known, a mothering royal boasts a rather discerning palate - and paralelling such high inclination requires a particularly keen gifting talent. Take note of the above assemblage - look beyond its pricey message - and gift with the intention of making a posh investment!

Mommy Dearest

Take it from this mom of (almost) three - this is what she really wants, if she's anything like me. Sure she wants flowers, handmade cards, and cocktails in bed - but she also isn't opposed to lemon quartz baubles instead. There isn't a mom on this planet that wouldn't love a celebratory liquid lunch - however I'm sure a punchy tote would give her the same thrill... just a hunch. So, if mommy has a certain MRS taste - you can bet your bottom $$$ that none of these would go to waste!
