In the UK, Mother’s Day is on Sunday 19th March. Below are a few gift ideas for you to purchase.
Earthy Nail Polish
Earthy Nail Polish are award winning eco-conscious brand whose natural origin nail polishes and treatments are vegan and cruelty free. They have replaced the single use plastic cap with highly sustainable bamboo and all seals within the cap are made from 100% post-consumer plastic. They have a wide range of colours and also treatments for your nails including eco friendly polish remover. This comes with a dropper style applicator and is acetone free and 21 free.
This pastel set is called ‘Here Comes The Sun’. It’s perfect spring colours are great for Mother’s Day. They all apply really nicely and last without chipping. Once empty, they offer a Recycle Reuse Programme which is a great addition.
The Body Shop
This year, The Body Shop released the Edelweiss collection which is a glow up of their fan favourite Drops Of Youth range. I’m finishing off the Edelweiss Intense Smoothing Day Cream and my skin has loved it. It’s a thick, nourishing cream – perfect for dry skin. Edelweiss is a rare mountain flower that grows in Alpine environments. It’s only found at very high altitudes. I’ve reccently purchased the serum too and I’m applying this at night. Edelweiss is naturally strengthened by leontopodic acid known for its antioxidant properties. The cream is non-greasy but instantly plumping. I’m going to be getting the Sleep Relaxing Massage Oil for my Mum, which is non-greasy, leaves skin soft and aids sleep. Use code: 14315 for 20% off.
I like to top up on my skincare at Sephora. My absolute favourites are the newer Dermalogica Circular Hydration Serum 30ml and the Dermalogica Hyaluronic Ceramide Mist 150ml I’ve purchased several of these and they massively improve my dry skin. I just need them to be produced in larger quantities!

I have now been using Spectrum Collections brushes for about 5 years. Spectrum was started by two sisters, Sophie and Hannah in April 2014 from a garage in Barry, South Wales, UK. They’re vegan and cruelty free, using soft, synthetic brushes. They do regular new ranges and mystery bundles. Using my code; SCG5KG56 you can get 20% off your purchase.
My favourite at the moment is Libre by YSL. The Libre Eau De Parfum fronted by Dua Lips has very quickly grown on me. It’s quite sophisticated and not my usual scent ingredients, but I really love this floral combination. Top notes of Tangerine, Neroli & Lavender. Heart notes of Jasmine Sambac & Orange Blossom. Base notes of White Musk & Vanilla Extract.
La Vie est Belle by Lancôme is represented by Julia Roberts, it has magnolia essence, pear and blackberry with orange flower and jasmine sambac at the heart. It’s base is patchouli essence that has been sustainably sourced and bottled in an eco-conscious, refillable bottle.

This is the latest book from Marie Kondo – Kurashi at Home (Meaning way of life). It includes some helpful tips about how to keep a calm mind and home with a more holistic and personal approach to curating environments. It also includes some of her favourite recipes.
I purchased this as a gift for my Mum a few years ago, but I’m glad to see it’s still available. She’s read them many times over the years and owns a variety of published versions. But, I really liked the idea of updating her collection with a matching collection. They have a soft cover, with embossed detail and patterned inners, which are really pretty. Each spine has a slightly different design, but when put together, they all link.

When I first started my blog, it was heavily inspired by GLOSSYBOX, I love that you get to try out a range of products/brands before fully committing to full price or full size.
