De-Zombify Your Eyes With Benefit Erase Paste


For the past month or so, I've been looking (and feeling) like a straight up zombie - but for good reason. I gave birth to my second child - a daughter, Arwen - on June 5 (a month before her due date).   It's hard enough being a mom to a preemie, but Arwen also spent her first 8 days in the Neonatal CONTINUE READING

L'Occitane Vitoria Regia: Botanical Beauty From Brazil


L'Occitane does a lot right when it comes to making their products - one of my most favorite things about the company is their ability to get the true fragrances of flowers.I had the pleasure of trying Vitoria Regia Hand Cream (above) from the Brazil Collection, and it's amazing!  The cream is not too thick and it doesn't leave that sometimes CONTINUE READING

Love Your Glasses with Glasses.com


When I was about 11 years old, my mom took me to see a play. I can’t remember exactly what show it was – probably because, at the time, I couldn’t see it very well. As we were driving home from the performance, my mom rattled off her favorite parts of the performance and engaged me in conversation. It CONTINUE READING

Kimye Wedding Makeup Artist: Mario Dedivanovic


By now, you've probably heard all of the Kimye wedding details. Kim Kardashian wore a Givenchy Haute Couture lace gown (she slipped into a bodycon Balmain dress post-ceremony) and Kanye West was outfitted in a custom Givenchy tuxedo. Not to be outdone, little North wore a dress also designed by Givenchy's creative director, Riccardo Tisci. The couple exchanged Lorraine CONTINUE READING

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Orchids from ProPlants

Posted on by daneen in Discounts, Featured, Sale | Leave a comment

mothers day proplants ruelala Blush Blooming Orchid Mothers Day Gift Guide: Orchids from ProPlants

One of my favorite Mother’s Day gifts for Mama Spoiled Pretty is a beautiful floral bouquet. Yes, flowers can be a bit cliche…but when done correctly, they’re the perfect present. First, when purchasing flowers, it’s best to plan in advance. A store-bought bouquet with the price tag still on it is the antithesis of a thoughtful gesture. Plus, you’re giving your lovely mom work to do – because now she has to find an appropriate vase, cut the stems and arrange the flowers. And, it may be just me…but no matter how hard I arrange those flowers, I can never get them to look as good in the vase as they looked in the cellophane.

So do yourself (and your mom) a favor and order some professionally arranged flowers – and have them delivered to your mom’s door. I’ve yet to meet a woman who doesn’t get giddy from a flower delivery. Plus, the surprise factor kicks the gift up a few notches.

Right now, RueLaLa is having a ProPlants sale. For $21-49, you can send your mother these artfully arranged orchids:

One Blush Blooming Orchid, $30 (originally $49): Pictured above, this double-stem pink mini phalaenopsis orchid plant comes in a hexagonal white ceramic vase. 30+ blooms can last up to eight weeks.

 

mothers day proplants ruelala pansy orchid Mothers Day Gift Guide: Orchids from ProPlantsOne Pansy Orchid, $30 (originally $59): A burgundy Miltonia orchid comes in a bronze-finish vase. Arrives in tight blooms to maximize bloom time in your home.

 

mothers day proplants ruelala purple ladybird orchid Mothers Day Gift Guide: Orchids from ProPlantsOne Purple Ladybird Orchid, $36 (originally $59): A purple and green Ladybird Zygopetalum orchid plant – in a black ceramic vase. Arrives in tight blooms to maximize bloom time in your home. Blooms can last up to eight weeks.

 

mothers day proplants ruelala rare blue vanda orchid Mothers Day Gift Guide: Orchids from ProPlantsOne Rare Blue Vanda Orchid, $49 (originally $79): In a 15-inch-tall shatter-proof clear acrylic cylinder.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Tory Burch Key Fobs

mothers day Mothers Day Gift Guide: Tory Burch Key Fobs

For a long time, Mother’s Day was just another Hallmark holiday to me. Time to buy the obligatory bouquet and card, right? That is until I had my son, Westley. Only then did I understand what a difficult (and rewarding) job motherhood truly is. And now that Westley is 3.5-years-old and I’m 2 months shy of welcoming his little sister into the world, Mother’s Day holds even more meaning for me.

So do me a favor. This Mother’s Day, I want you to spoil the mothers in your life. It’s okay if your wallet is a little light. We moms appreciate a home-cooked meal, a thoughtful email/text message and – yes – the obligatory bouquet or card. But in case you’re feeling generous this year, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite Mother’s Day gift suggestions over the next 10 days or so.
