Mother’s Day is a very important day for me. Not because I’m a mom but because I have had such a strong role model to grow up with as my mother. Growing up I couldn’t call her my best friend, we hardly got along. All I wanted back then was a “cool” mom, but she knew I needed her as my mother, not as my friend. Though she could be tough at times when it came to boyfriends and late nights, it’s because she knew I needed boundaries. It took me years to realize that when I thought she was “against me” during my teenage years, she took the hard road and was the mom she knew I needed. She is such a warm loving person, it’s no surprise at all that her Grandkids ask for weekends spent at Nona  & Pop-Pop’s  house. There is never a dull moment whenever you are around Nona, BABS, also known as my mother. Now many years later I’m so proud I get to not only call her my mother and our Nona but my very best friend as well. 

I rounded up somethings that I know she would love and I love as well. 

I hope all of you mamas have a wonderful Mother’s Day being pampered and spending some quality time with your loved ones.

I also think every mom deserves what I like to call a TO ME FROM ME gift on Mother’s Day 🙂 I think an ASHA piece would be extra special for your mother or a gift to you from your “babies/kids” aka husbands but everything works perfectly for TO ME FROM ME gifts as well 🙂 So go ahead and spoil yourself… an order from Mrs. Nipple!

Xx Happy Mother’s Day 


Mother’s Day Roundup

#1  A piece of meaningful jewelry. I just discovered the brand ASHA and fell in love. Their pieces are timeless, bold, and sophisticated. I was on the hunt for a necklace with a long chain that also was personal in some way and came across Asha by ADM only to discover that their corporate headquarters and showroom are across the street from our home. Here are my two ASHA Mother’s Day picks: THIS necklace has a long chain, it comes in an 18 and 30 inch version and has a classic zodiac pendant in mother of pearl hanging on it. I love it paired with the smaller zodiac pendants, one for each of your children’s signs, HERE. I just received the Scorpio necklace with Libra and Aries pendants for both of my sons. ASHA also has letter pendants which could be another idea. You can find the letter pendants, HERE and HERE.  Also check out all of my ASHA picks below.
