Mother’s Day:the celebration honoring one’s mother, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. What have you got planned for your mum this mothers day? My family and I have developed an accidental tradition of going for lunch or dinner at Lussmans in St Albans. We absolutely LOVE it there (despite the fact they took my favourite dish off the menu last year; tomatoe linguine with chicken snitzal!) The service is always excellent, as is the food. James, my hubby has been joining our mothers day for as long as we’ve been together. His mum tragically passed away from cancer when he was only eleven. Really really awful 🙁 Every Mother’s Day for anyone who’s lost their mum, must feel sad but I hope that joining our family outing helps James’ think positively so that he can celebrate the memory of his amazing mum instead. That being said, and with Mother’s Day looming, I thought I’d share my top 5 treats that all mums will LOVE:1. A family lifestyle photoshoot with me 🙂 If you are truly stuck for ideas and want something a little more personal, then this is something mum will LOVE. A lifestyle shoot with me starts from £145 – the PERFECT treat! More details can be found here.
2. Candles candles and more candles! A beautiful scented candle is an absolute easy win! I am in LOVE with the Diptique Bailes candle at the moment, which you can buy here from Selfridges.
3. Cowshed spa visit and treatment. Every mum deserves some r&r and this place in central London is perfect for that. The new ‘Sleepy Cow Body Treatment’ sounds heavenly. Have a look at their gorgeous site and get your mum booked in!
4. Monica Vinader Fiji Bracelet.
These gorgeous bracelets are simple yet super stylish. My fave that i’ve been coveting for a while is this gorgeous rose gold one and your mum would love it too.
5. Gorgeous gorgeous flowers from a wedding florist, and NOT ordered online. The love care and attention that goes in to a florists bouquet is so noticeable when you order directly. The bouquets will be the prettiest you’ve seen and mum will notice the difference too. If you are surrey based, please visit my FAVOURITE florist in the world, Caroline from Cherfold Cottage Flowers. Her flowers are perfect and she has brigts and pastel tones available. Small bouquet £25, medium £35 and large (definitely go large!) £50. Last orders by next Wednesday so get yours in sharpish 🙂
