So Mother’s day is approaching in the USA and you’re on a budget? I get it, well I’m going to show you today that there are some really simple, easy, painless, straightforward and diverse ideas that you can create in your very own home.
Let’s start with mason jars, they are totally in trend right now and they really portray a vintage vibe. I had one in my bedroom not really doing much but sitting there all pretty for decoration staring right at me, what could I do with something like that? well look no further, pick up that jar and fill it with anything you can find, for me I went straight to the shredder and filled it with some shredded paper at the bottom for like a base as such and then you can simply place anything you find lying around the house that hasn’t been opened which could potentially be a gift, or it doesn’t even have to be a gift, here I’ve filled my jar with some nail varnishes and will call it “Manicure in a jar” your mum will love these little pamper treats, fill it with some of her favorite colors so she has a choice to choose from, choice is always good!
Or if you do not have a mason jar at home look around for what you could have? I also found a china dish in my bedroom which was empty, perfect for filling and using as a gift! Below are a few pictures of how I have put together a little gift set involving the china dish, I found these things around my home.
So there you have it many ideas on how to simply create a mother’s day gift from home, get creative and let me know if you’ve made anything similar! If you don’t already know, pinterest has many ideas from creating candles to baking flower cupcakes, bath salts, handcrafted flower bouquets, soaps, salt dough bowls, bath bombs, light bulb flower vases, sugar scrubs and it could even be something simple as making your mum some breakfast in bed. You name it, pinterest has every idea so more inspiration go and take a look on there!
It’s Monday and officially May! So happy Monday May haha! Do not ask me where the last 4 months have gone because they have certainly flown by that’s for sure.
Another exciting blog today! Catchy title huh? kinda like a repetition song! Anyone have a clue about what today’s blog is about by the title? Anyone know who Olivia Burton is? well say no more friends scroll down and find out below!
So another day older.. my birthday (Jess) falls on St George’s Day (23rd April) which was last weekend, I’m now 22 yay haha and as a present from my parents I received a watch from Olivia Burton and it is absolutely beautiful I’m completely in love with it! I’ve been looking at the Olivia Burton watches for a while now looking in Topshop and on their online store and also whilst in the USA with a recent trip to Minnesota with Trevor where we saw some that were beautifully laid out in Nordstrom. So it was a very hard decision of which one I wanted especially with so much great choice on their website. Take a look here – http://www.oliviaburton.com/ –
But I finally decided on what watch I wanted so take a look below! 🙂
I love it! In fact I don’t think there has been one time since I got it that I haven’t worn it out yet!
