Happy Mother’s Day 2014!

 

 

Happy Mother’s Day to America!!!

 

My 2 strong Viking boys are my pride & joy! There is nothing I would rather do than spend time with them.

 

 

 

 

My seven year old is all action! He’s practically never walked in his whole life – he crawled, then went straight to running…a soccer superstar in the making I think! Trying to keep up is keeping me fit :)

 

 

He loves Legos – I’ve been known to make some complex Lego creations myself :) .

I keep him cool & hydrated with homemade fresh fruit juice popsicles (half juice, half water), and of course make sure that he’s always got sunscreen on when he’s outside now that we live in Sunny California – he hates this, but coconut-scented Kiehl’s works better than most.

I was only 22 when I had my older boy so we kind of grew up together :) He takes care of me :) and himself for the most part…he sent me this card below, which pretty much sums him up!

 

 

 

 

Of course, Mother’s Day is a great time to show your gratitude to the mothers in your life. I like personal gifts for moms – not a kitchen pot, or something for the whole family – more something that is “HER”!

Find Crayon Combo in Super Natural at: http://bit.ly/1gSTiWf

 

 

All you need is:

1. A tinted moisturizer & concealer combo – this brightens & evens out complexion, all while keeping skin hydrated and protected with SPF 20.

2. A quick duo shadow & liner combo – this enhances any eye shade, blends out easily without any additional tools, stays on and looks super natural.

3. A tinted nourishing balm in a “happy” colour – apply to lips and dab onto cheeks for a touch of instant perk-me-up colour (pink ALWAYS works!).

A palette of brightening shades on your dresser at home is a quick way to put some effort into how you look very quickly in the morning. Soft Focus Fresh (pictured above) is my favorite – its soft pastel colours in endless options would make any mom happy on Mother’s Day. It’s the perfect thoughtful & personal gift!

 

 

I personally owe so much to the strong and beautiful (inside & out!) – women that I grew up with. They made me who I am.

 

The rock of the family, my Mormor (whose favourite flower was Lily of the Valley), is pictured below. I am so grateful for her, she is my hero and role model!

 

 

 

 

A big “HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY” to everyone! Hope it is filled with lots of love & laughter, and don’t forget to carve out some time for yourself!

A happy mother is a good mother!!! :)
