selfridges mothers day Diptyque RoseFor anyone that is as last minute as me with their Mother’s Day gifts I thought I would share a quick look at some of the bits Selfridges which are perfect for any Mums that love beauty. It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday so you have just a couple of days left to pick up all your pressies.

My first pick from the lot has to be the Charlotte Tilbury creams, I just love the brand and these are a really lovely treat. I’ve tried the original Magic Cream which was beautiful and I’m expecting the same from the Eye Rescue and Night Cream. You could splash out on the Magic Cream Duo or pick the one item which your mum would appreciate most.

I think perfumes and candles are also always a great option for any female although it can be tricky to choose the perfect scent for someone else. Aerin is brand which I’m still exploring but their fragrances are real stand out products, they look really luxurious and elegant, plus theres a nice range so you can find one that your mother will love. Mediterranean honeysuckle is exclusive to Selfridges but pretty amazing!

I’m also really loving rose at the moment and the Diptyque range doesn’t disappoint! It works great for any age and I must admit that I am super excited to burn this candle! The Rose Roll On also comes in the most beautiful packaging, is the perfect handbag size and is very affordable as far as luxury perfumes go.

As my mum isn’t huge into beauty I often opt for body and skin products as everyone needs these and it’s always nice to make an everyday task such as creaming your body that little bit more lavish. Estée Lauder’s Revitalising Supreme Body Creme is the perfect pre-spring pick me up, it’s deeply nourishing and adds the most beautiful radiance to the body. However for my mother, top of her list is always a great hand cream, especially the Clarins Super Restorative Hand Cream which is the perfect anti0ageing, intensive hand cream!

For makeup loving mothers I don’t think you can beat a good lip colour such as the Giorgio Armani Lip Maestros which are grown up matte lip lacquers that provide rich, intense colour. Alternatively everyone needs a good mascara and Estee Lauder Sumptuous Knockout is the ideal one for anyone looking to add lift and definition to their lashes.

My final beauty recommendation is one I have been trying over the last week myself and it’s the Suqqu Musculate Massage & Mask Cream. It’s currently my favourite relaxation, pamper item. It’s a rich and highly moisturising cream which can really be used to massage the skin in order to promote blood circulation, hydrate and add the perfect glow to the skin.

Have you bought your Mother’s Day Gift yet? Did you pick up any beauty bits?

 

 

PS. I’m getting a facial tomorrow a Radical Skincare Facial tomorrow (which would make the perfect Mother’s Day Gift too!) so join me on Snapchat to follow my day: alittleobsessed

This Mother’s Day Lush are offering an array of products which would make the perfect relaxing gift or treat for any mum.

My favourite has to be the Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb, £3.50, it is a floral bomb filled with rose petals, soya milk powders, orange flower, rosewood and Turkish Rose Oils. Its a really beautiful, relaxing and soothing bath which leaves the skin feeling amazing too.

If you are looking for one that is a little fun than the Bubblegrub is perfect. It creates great bubbles with shea butter and aromatic sandalwood which leaves skin soft and the bathroom smelling incredible.

One I was a little disappointed by is the Love You Mum soap, although it’s a floral soap I really dislike the scent and I personally don’t think I could use this in the bath.

More Mother’s Day options on the Lush website and instore, now I can’t wait to try the easter items!

L’Occitane Hand Cream Trio, £22
Every woman needs hand cream but I feel mother’s need it even more and L’Occitane hand cream has to be one of my favourites ever. I love this trio as it’s got a range of scents and they’re handbag friendly too. 

Soak & Sleep Grey Brushed Cotton Flannel, £45
I really love a personalised gift and these grey cotton pyjamas are a timeless present for any age. Soak & Sleep offer a whole range of personalised items and I also have/love the bathrobe.

Pandora Charm, Charms start at £20
I love jewellery as gifts as you don’t have to worry too much about the size of the person an a simple silver bracelet is pretty universal (unless they prefer gold). I particularly love Pandora bracelets as you can buy charms for future gifts and really personalise it to the individual. 

Lucie & Sebastien Champagne (via 31Dover), £30
Mothers day calls for a celebration and therefore Champagne! A great gift that you will hopefully get to share.

Estee Lauder Modern Muse Chic, £45
I think choosing a perfume for someone is always quite difficult and if you’re mother has a signature fragrance then I probably would stray from that. If she doesn’t or you know she is looking for something new than I would recommend giving Modern Muse Chic by Estee Lauder a go, it’s a feminine floral scent perfect for spring.

This Works Sleep Plus Pillow Spray, £25
Everyone deserves a good night’s sleep but I find I sleep best when I use the This Works Pillow Spray, I like the original but the Plus version is even better! Perfect for mum’s that are looking to catch up on their beauty sleep.

Becksondergaard Clutch, here
Clutches are currently my favourite gift to give as they aren’t as expensive as handbag’s and can often feel a little more luxurious as they’re are typically used on more special occasions. I am currently in love with this pale pink leather one which also comes in a few other colours but is the perfect size for essentials. 

The Body Shop, starts at £4.50
If you are looking for affordable skincare than The Body Shop Vitamin E is the perfect balance between affordable and luxurious. I love all the products in the range but feel I reach for it even more in spring and summer, they also have some limited edition Queen themed packaging just for mother’s day.

Becksondergaard Scarf, here
One again I think a scarf is timeless and perfect for any age. Both my mother and I are in love with this one which is a Silk and Wool blend, she has already hinted at it as her mother’s day gift. 

 If there is one product that my mother and I both like it’s the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream. Not nessecarily something we both reach for every single day but it is one of our favourites to treat dry skin, chapped lips and even minor burns. It’s a cult beauty favourite for a reason and they have just released this beautiful case, just in time for Mother’s Day.

In side this case you receive 5 products including a full size of 8 hour cream (worth £22) and a travel size Body Treatment, Facial Moisturiser, Facial Sun Defense and Hand Treatment. If your mother is a Eight Hour cream lover or has never tried it, I am sure she will love it. The whole set retails for £38 which is actually quite good value.

The set is available from Boots and other Elizabeth Arden Counters for £38.

With Mother’s day just around the corner I thought I would share a few Mother and Daughter outfit’s which I think would work perfectly. Mother’s day seems like a nice excuse to go for a nice meal and dress up or even enjoy each others company shopping or for a walk in the park. The problem is not all mother’s and daughter are the same age but hopefully this will help some of you get some nice ideas, I’d happily wear both sets of outfits.

All Clothing items are from Hush and accessories are all ASOS or Topshop.

For the mother I wanted to go for something still quite young and fresh. I absolutely love plain white t-shirts and think it’s a shame people seem to stop dressing them up at a certain age. I found all the clothing items on Hush Daywear Section and was surprised by how much I loved the whole range. The first outfit is quite a nice casual one if you don’t have anything too fancy planned but still want to look nice. The heels help dress up the outfit and I think a nice watch always makes and outfit look more polished. Outfit number two is teamed with a nice pair of flat sandals as I know not everyone wants to wear a skirt with heels but the structured bag means it all looks less casual. For something a little more smart this little black dress is perfect and very flattering skinning over anything you may not want seen. I also love these cute shoes to add length to legs but also to finish the outfit.

I think I had far too much fun putting this together and choosing the items I liked from the website. The dress and biker jacket are some what of a spring/summer wardrobe to me. I fell in love with these jeans (check out other trousers here) and I always love a causal look teamed with a pair of heels. Looking through the Hush dress sections I found this LBD is also perfect, not too short and can be dressed up of down, I couldn’t help adding a pop of colour with the back of the shoes and the beautiful clutch.
