Burke Williams Spa
If you’re looking to get a FAB gift, It might be time to spend Mother’s Day at Burke Williams. They are having great package deals and a little spa action is always a wonderful gift for mom. I loveeee massages and am always discovering new places and visiting old favorites. Burke Williams is definitely an old favorite and the ultimate in relaxation. They also have a bunch of locations so you can find one that is closest to your mother.
Burke Williams Spa
Choose from West Hollywood, Pasadena and Santa Monica or branch out further to Orange country, Sherman Oaks and even San Francisco. I suggest you get mom the “Relax” package which is a spa pedicure plus either a 50 minute massage or a 50 minute facial for $145. The regular price in usually $180. Or if you’re feeling like a baller you and mom can do a day together! Those are always fun and the deal is really good! Its basically the “Relax” package for two but at $275 rather than the normal $360! Wahoo. Now, you can relax in luxury knowing you got a great deal!

I am always surprised at how hard it is to find a unique set of mixing spoons. You would think there would be a ton of options, but I find that most of them are very drab and generic. On my quest to find a unique set of salad mixers for Mother’s Day, I came across these drumstick salad servers and absolutely love them. They are super cutetastic and not so over the top that you would be embarrassed to use them. These drumstick salad servers are such a great Mother’s Day gift. This set could really “jazz” things up in the kitchen!
You can also use the drumstick salad servers more broadly as general mixing spoons for your pots and pans! This is also an item that appeals to guys and girls, which is always a plus in my book. You want a gift that a couple can both enjoy!
Mother’s day gift for the musical mom in your life? Would your mom like this gift?
As the sun starts to poke through the grey winter clouds one might feel the need for a little pop of color in their home! The easiest way to spruce up your place without breaking the bank is to change up the throw pillows on your couch. A small detail that can really make the room come alive! I am loving these C Wonder heart pillows for a sweet spring look! These pillows are also a great housewarming present! Super cute, simple and fab for spring!
Good morning everyone! Mothers Day is fast approaching and before you know it you’ll be running to CVS for a random something before brunch with the family. Not this year! Instead, lets do something special and make DIY sugar and salt scrubs. It is soooo easy and cheap-tastic to make this gift and it looks and feels super fab! Not to mention, all mothers love a little relaxation and they will greatly appreciate this gem! Legit, all you need to do to DIY sugar and salt scrubs is use two ingredients, a Ball jar and a chalk paint label!
Here is how its done
2 parts cane sugar, 1 part coconut oil
2 parts table salt, 1 part coconut oil
Here are some helpful hints: You can substitute coconut oil for olive oil or baby oil if you prefer! Also, I always use a white paint pen on chalk labels and chalk paint because it gives the same affect and looks a lot neater! It is hard to make a small label look nice using chalk because the chalk piece is so wide. Add a bow to your jar, and voila! Super cute DIY sugar and salt scrubs for Mothers Day!
Fred and Friends unzipped bag bowl
While in Carmel this past weekend, I stumbled upon this Fred and Friends unzipped bag bowl and think it is just too damn cute as a hostess gift for all your spring parties!
