Mother’s Day Treats to Surprise, Delight and Spoil

Mother’s Day is nearly here but there is still time to find her the perfect gift - and she deserves it!  Flowers and a card with a message from the heart are always nice, but this year give her something she really wants, to show her that she is amazing and wonderful and special.  Some moms are young and first time mothers, while others are well seasoned, and there really are great gift ideas that will show her your love and appreciation for all she does for you.  Yes, she loves the homemade presents you made as a child, but now that you are adulting it is time to step it up and give her something that will be a real treat.

You really can’t go wrong with a piece of jewelry or somewhere nice to stow it, so why not choose a ring or earrings that are aligned with causes so that by gifting her you are in fact giving back to those in need?  And while you are at it, who wouldn’t love a chic storage box to keep all her jewelry in order?  

Moms are tech-savvy and having somewhere to keep her phone and tablet organized and charged is practical but stylish at the same time.  Or hook her up with a great play list, podcast list, or audio books with a bluetooth speaker system that fits just about anywhere. 

Moms are beautiful! And whether they say so or not, they love to feel beautiful too.  But being a mom often means putting her own needs last and skincare/hair/makeup/nails often takes a back seat - sometimes way back.  Give her a subscription to a monthly beauty box service that is personalized to her want and needs, that arrives right to the door with a chic makeup case included. 

Moms of all ages need a break, even if that means ten minutes of peace and quiet in the pick up line at school or during team practice.  Give her the gift of peace and quiet with the Calm app to help her find her inner zen.  Never underestimate the power of a calm mind.  Wellness matters, and this customizable app will give her tools to sleep better, focus, relax, and meditate during stressful mothering moments.  Breathe….. ohm……

Sometimes the best escape is a visual one: armchair travel is much easier when you have kids.  Help her dream of future adventures to destinations all over the world with this two book set, guaranteed to inspire her. 

Does you mom have a tea addiction? Pamper her with a fresh take on tea with a new variety of unique blends in test tube sized containers.  This particular set has a wonderful mixture of teas that are delightful and new, really upping the tea experience. A chic teapot with built in filter and wooden stand rounds out the gift so she can properly spoil herself. And think of you every time she uses it.

Busy moms know that meal planning and shopping is time consuming, and it can be hard to dream up dishes that are tasty and nutritious without going on a seven day repeat cycle of good old standbys. Treat her to a weekly meal subscription service that is customizable to her tastes, complete with easy to follow recipes, seasonal produce, and her choice of meat, fish, or vegetarian meals.  Take the guesswork and shopping out of the equation time to time, to spice up the kitchen routine.  

Moms work harder than anyone and give more of themselves to raise their families and we should celebrate them every single day.  So give her something to delight her and show her you put some thought into what she would really like.  Happy Mother’s Day to all my mom readers! You are amazing!

Supermodel mini baby boom! Model Moms Inspire on Instagram

It’s a mini baby boom in the modeling world and baby bumps are watched by millions on Instagram.  In the past two weeks, two Victoria’s Secret angels welcomed their own little angels.  Behati Prinsloo gave birth to her first child, a little girl named Dusty Rose, and Candice Swanepoel welcomed her first born, a baby boy named Anacan.  The new moms join a long list of supermodels who have given “yummy mummy” a whole new meaning. 

Having a baby used to signal the winding down of a modeling career, as it was assumed that giving birth would somehow ruin a model’s figure and distract her from her career.  Not so!  Today’s models are even more amazing after having their babies, with more sensual, womanly curves.  It is now completely normal for a model to start her family in her late twenties as they know that their career will pick up again and even expose them to a broader audience after they have kids. Modeling careers can go on indefinitely now and pausing to start a family no longer means an end of her career unless a it is a model’s personal choice.  It actually focuses a model’s energies into achieving more while working less in order to spend as much time as she can with her offspring, while providing for them at the same time. 

I managed to keep my hand in the modeling world while I had my own three kids and wouldn’t change a thing.  I became a much more successful and focused model after starting my family, and with the great support of my agents and clients I have been able to maintain my career and achieve so many of my goals while raising my kids.  Some models, such as Adriana Lima, Doutzen Kroes and Heidi Klum have even walked runways – including in the epic Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show – only weeks after giving birth.  Many model moms like Kate Moss, Natalia Vodianova, and Sasha Pivoverova have appeared with their children in the pages of Vogue shot by legendary photographers in some of the most beautiful and memorable editorials ever.  The industry no longer dictates when or how a model can begin her family or influence how she raises her kids.  

Here’s to yummy mummies everywhere!  Welcome Dusty Rose and Anacan!  We will be watching your moms’ Instagram feeds to share in their joy with their new little angels!
