Moody Picks: Last Minute Mother’s Day Gifts For Under $100

I swear Mother’s Day always seems to sneak up on me year after year.  Is anyone else in the same boat?  Well, don’t worry because I put together a quick last minute Mother’s Day gift guide for all of you procrastinators who's still searching for the perfect gift.  This year I found 25 beautiful gifts that mom will absolutely love and they are all under $100.  Check out the photo below to shop this year’s picks and be prepared to make her day.  Because if there’s one thing that mom really loves, is any gift that came from you. 

And if your mom prefers experiences instead of an actual gift, here are a few ideas on how to spend time with your mom on Mother’s Day:

1. Spa Day: Take your mom to her favorite day spa for a day of pampering.  You can schedule a relaxing massage followed by a facial or a mani-pedi to make sure that your mom leaves the spa feeling fresh and fabulous.

2. Workout and Brunch: Treat your mom to a fun day with some physical activities. Whether it’s sightseeing a new town on a bike tour, going for a walk/run in a new location, signing her up to attend new fitness class or trying out a local rock-climbing gym. Afterwards, grab a smoothie or a healthy meal at her favorite brunch spot.

3. A New Class and Dinner: Surprise your mom with an art or crafting class that she’s been dying to try or you and your mom can sharpen your cooking skills by signing up for a cooking class.  For example, I think an activity like Painting with a Twist followed by dinner could be a fun Mother’s Day activity.

Mood Board – Dream Dressing Room

I’m so excited to finally share this post with you. I was recently inspired by Arhaus to share a post on my ideal dream dressing room mood board along with a few design tips! I’m no where close to being an interior designer, but I do love putting together mood boards to illustrate some ideas I have about my dream home. I currently live in an apartment, so most of you understand that I’m in desperate need of an upgrade from my small walk-in closet to a boutique-inspired room complete with extra seating, stylish lighting and other luxuries. And although I won’t be moving into my perfectly spacious closet any time soon, a girl is never too old to keep dreaming right? Anyways, if you’re contemplating a closet upgrade or simply just daydreaming about it, here are 5 tips to keep in mind when creating your new space:

1. Mirrors: Be sure to add mirrors and/or mirrored doors to the space because it adds light to the room and also provides views from every angle while getting dressed. The right mirror can add a little character to the space as well. I love how this one has a distressed finish creating a vintage style to this closet.

2. Incorporate an Island: If you have extra space in your closet, then try to incorporate an island in the space. An island makes a statement in any room, especially a closet since it’s rare to see. You can have one built in or use a dresser or chest like these here. The dresser I picked out below has the right details to transform a typical closet into a stylish sanctuary. It also has additional drawers for storage and space to lay out clothing for a better view when packing or organizing.

3. Jewelry and Accessories Station: Take inspiration from your favorite stores or boutiques to display your collection of clutches and handbags, statement necklaces, bracelets, earrings and shoes. Adding displays like a mannequin, a rolling rack, a jewelry armoire or an open bookcase for your shoes are perfect ways to create a unique and sophisticated space.

4. Seating Arrangement: In order for your walk-in closet to be truly functional and enjoyable, you’ll need proper seating. An ottoman or an armchair is the perfect solution. You can lay out outfits on the ottoman or sit on the chair to get your shoes on. It’s also an easy way to bring color into your closet to make it feel like every other room in the home

5. Proper Lighting: Light fixtures in closets are necessary especially when they lack natural lighting. Finding the right outfit by making sure the colors match and/or making sure that your outfit isn’t too sheer requires proper lighting. Go for an elegant style if you want to replicate a celebrity-style closet. Adding a chandelier like any of these here will certainly do just the trick.

Well, there you have it. Check out some of my favorite pieces from Arhaus for my dream dressing room below. What would your dream dressing room look like? Do you already have one? Let me know if you have any other furniture suggestions for this room.
