Mother’s Day Gift Guide for My Mom :: #eBayMom Collections

Mother’s Day is just a few weeks away. Although celebrated worldwide for centuries, the first modern Mother’s Day in the United States wasn’t until 1908. Since then the second Sunday of May marks the day we honor our mothers, grandmothers and motherhood. One way to show your love and appreciation for all your mom has done is to give a thoughtful gift. This year in collaboration with eBay, I’ve curated a couple of #eBayMom collections with gift ideas that would be perfect for my own mom. If you haven’t heard of eBay collections, you will have to check them out. They are are great way to compile gift ideas for loved ones!

My mom is always on the go. She can be found snowshoeing in the winter, taking long hikes during the summer and hitting the gym with her trainer a couple days a week. I love that she has stayed so active and to celebrate this I’ve created an eBay collection with items my active mom could use.

Another place you can find my mom is in the kitchen. She loves to cook, bake and entertain. This eBay collection is all about her love for all things culinary. I’ve handpicked several items like the snow cone maker that I think would be fun for her to do with the grand-kids too!

Your mom wouldn’t care for any of these items? No worries. eBay for Mother’s Day has you covered. By simply curating your own collection for your mom using #eBayMom, you have the chance to win $500. Each week, one entrant who creates an #eBayMom collection will be chosen to win a $500 shopping spree on eBay. The sweepstakes runs now through May 11, 2014, so don’t delay!

happy shopping,


*although this post is in collaboration with eBay, all ideas are my own (as always!)

Pastel Easter & Spring Inspiration

It’s only a few days away, so wanted to pass along some inspiring Easter ideas courtesy of Ikea. A soft pastel color palette is always a great direction for an Easter tablescape. This one created by Ikea features ARV dinnerware in pink and white has a simple and rustic look, but it also expresses a soft touch with the wave-shaped edge.

In addition to the setting the table, I also love the idea of hanging seasonal art prints and graphic posters like this message of springtime! A different and nice way to display prints is to use a pant hanger like seen below.

As you transition your wardrobe from winter to spring, it a great time to give your closet a little makeover. One way is to unify the look of your hangers. Love these painted in springtime pastels too!

happy day,
