Mother's Day is less than 2 weeks away which means you have juuuuust enough time to get the amazing woman in your life something special. While I'm a big proponent of sending some quality snail-mail, a little somethin' somethin' for, THE AMAZING PERSON who raised you (shout out to my very own, M-O-M) is always a good idea. And, I made it easy for you by featuring some of my favorite items from Amara, which essentially screams "all the things I want my kid to get me for Mother's Day." You're welcome.
Yes, I drop my phone
And it's getting pretty old. While I haven't cracked the actual screen (thank god for glass screen protectors) in about a year, I can tell that every time it hits the pavement, it takes a toll on my precious sidekick. And frankly, I'm over it. Until I found out about PopSockets - a nifty and inexpensive little device you stick to the back of your phone, pop up, and use to hold and anchor your grip when walking around, taking a photo, or even as a little kickstand to watch videos.
My favorite part, I got to customize my own PopSocket. The customization option makes these puppies perfect for gift-giving (perhaps for a bachelor(ette) outing). I chose to use the Beverly Hills Hotel Banana Leaf print (obviously) with the hot pink accordion. However, I'm loving the donut and bagel option. Maybe next time!
PopSocket Pro Tip: If your Popsocket loses its stickiness from frequent moving or from getting dirty, you can rinse and reclaim its stickiness. Rinse the gel under water and let dry for about an hour and restick!
*Special thanks to PopSocket for sending me my adorable custom PopSocket. This is actually my iPhone's life savor. All opinions are my own.
Mother's day is right around the corner and if your Mom is anything like mine, she'll never ask for anything more than a card or a long phone call. Maybe this is the year you do that, and something a little extra. Here are some great ideas to make the best women in the world, Moms, feel special.

Summer is just around the corner (thank god) and we're pretty excited for the warm breeze and suntans. Other than a beach bag, sunscreen, and an icy marg, there really isn't much else to soaking up the sun, with the exception of a fun, colorful, beach towel to go with it. Nothing feels better then wrapping up in a giant, sunscreen-scented towel after a dip in the pool or ocean - if you're lucky enough. Here's a list of our favorite beach towels and blankets. We're LOVING the giant circle towels as well. Get them while they last!
