Nawwww … it’s that time of the year coming up soon – this coming Sunday in fact – where we celebrate our Mums. Those gorgeous Mums whose job it is to love us unconditionally and to be there for us in our good times and our not-so-good times! Whatever you’re planning to do for your Mum this Mother’s Day … make it extra-special by adding a big fat THANK YOU and an I LOVE YOU as well!
By the way – isn’t that photo up there ^^ stunning? That is the impossibly glamorous pinup mum, Nat Hugill – aka Lilly Loca. When I asked Nat what her idea of a great Mother’s Day was, she responded that all she wants for Mother’s Day is a day with her family. She doesn’t really believe in gifts and she and her hubby find material things aren’t necessary for happiness. And now I feel bad because I totally agree!!
But still … I am going to press on with my list of present ideas because while Nat is right, I do quite like presents, mmm-k? Heheeeeeee! So here are some Mother’s Day ideas for pinups that I personally would like to receive …
♥ Something foxy from Erstwilder … and he may as well be floral like this, because why not? And if you’re not “feeling” the foxy vibe for your Mum, what about this gorgeous little “Spiffy” dog – everyone needs a spotty dog brooch right? You can get these from Rita Sue but I would hurry because I imagine they’re selling pretty fast!
♥ A Mother Superior Bubble Bar from Lush! How cute is this – and let’s face it, Mums can be pretty superior at times! This one will help deliver her from uncleanliness (!) and leave her skin feeling soft and smelling of cherry blossoms. Click here to see all of Lush’s Mother’s Day offerings. I do so love Lush.
♥ A new frock … every Mum likes a new frock if you ask me. The new Mary Blair collection from Pinup Girl Clothing is FABULOUS … and in fact, this very frock is what Mumpty is getting for Mother’s Day!
♥ And while we’re on the subject of clothing … I think most Pinup Mums would love one of these Dita cardigans from Wheels & Dollbaby – shown here on Teer Wayde who rocks it most admirably! And it MAY be coming in the colour below – I most certainly hope it does as I am quite partial to that green, and I don’t (yet) have a Dita cardy.
♥ How about a custom-blended foundation from Phoenix Cosmetics? Perfectly matched to your skin tone and packaged for you instore – how cool is that? It comes in both matt and dewy finish options – and while you’re there, maybe check out the luxury lipstick in Some Like It Hot – because, perfect red.
By the way, the spectacular Heidi Heart is a Pink Lady at Phoenix Cosmetics, Wellington, so the colour she’s wearing in the pic below is most likely Some Like It Hot. If it makes you look like Heidi, you can’t go wrong, right?!
♥ Another option is one of these super-cuddly soft merino Isaac cable blankets by Babu to snuggle up in while she’s watching TV. I couldn’t choose between the colours so I’ve put all three. Maybe she needs all three? Anyway, you can get these at www.collected.co.nz
♥ And last but not least, while I was snuggling up in my merino blanket, I’d quite like to be wearing these … especially if it made me look like this when I hop out of bed! These are by Lovable and you can get them here on the Bendon site.
♥ OK … it wasn’t quite last but not least – because this one simply has to be snuck on to the list – just in case someone won Lotto this weekend and has a considerably larger budget for Mother’s Day than usual …
Bit hard to source though!
So there you have it … some ideas for your Pinup Mum. And actually, even if she’s not a pinup, she’s still very likely to love these suggestions. (If I say so myself!)
Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful Mums …
