5 Mother’s Day Gifts On My List

Instead of the traditional Mother’s Day gifts like flowers, chocolates or jewelry, this mama creates her own ideas. I’m certainly not going to turn down a plant (that I would probably end up killing within a week’s time) or a box of chocolates (that I would probably eat in one sitting), but I’m much rather enjoy any one of these 5 Mother’s Day gifts. I’m crossing my fingers that my kiddos see this post.


50 Shades of Grey Wine

Personally blended by author E.L. James, the Fifty Shades of Grey Wine Collection which includes Red Satin and White Silk, is inspired by the seductive relationship between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey in the hit series Fifty Shades of Grey.

Red Satin is a decadent blend with flavors of black cherry, cocoa powder, creamy caramel and vanilla, leather and clove spice. It is a primarily a blend of Petite Sirah and Syrah, aged in a combination of new and neutral French oak barrels. White Silk has floral aromatics of lychee, honey and pear. Those are tempered by flavors of crisp grapefruit, mineral and lush pear with a faint hint of butterscotch. White Silk is primarily a blend of Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc. This wine was fermented cool, under 50 degrees F, and aged in stainless steel to preserve its delicate and rich fruit character.

Red Satin and White Silk are now available for purchase at www.FiftyShadesWine.com, Albertsons, CVS, Total Wine and More, Vons and other retailers for $17.99. For more information on Fifty Shades of Grey Wine, visit www.FiftyShadesWine.com.

BSwim Layercake Dress

When it comes to Spring and Summer, I am a huge fan of maxi dresses. Isn’t this Layercake dress from BSwim adorable? What I love about this dress is that the layer over the maxi silhouette makes the waist appear smaller. The Halter-style spaghetti straps cross over in the back and tie through a low cut keyhole for adjustable fit. I love the pattern too!

Check out the Layercake dress HERE.

Now to just casually leave this article up on my computer screen.

Wish me luck!
