Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my fabulous, fantastic and fashionable mom’s birthday! She will likely be:

1. Angry at me for blogging about her birthday {although see mom, not mentioning your age}; and

2. Critical of the multiple spelling and grammatical errors in this post. {Mom, I am doing my best}.

It’s not only her birthday, but it’s also CYBER MONDAY. If you missed out on Black Friday and prefer to “shop” from the comfort of your own pajamas, then hop online and join the sales.

In honor of mom’s day, I thought I’d blog about a few of her favorite things which will likely be on sale on Cyber Monday {and if not, well, too bad}.

A. Citrus Smelling Perfume & Lotion

My love of lemon and grapefruit comes form my momma. She’s always loved the clean smell of citrus. Her favorites include Jo Malone Lime Basil and Mandarin or Grapefruit, L’Occitane Verbena & Annick Goutal Eau d’Hadrien.

B. Lip Balm


She’s a lip balm freak. Never leaves home without it. I’m addicted to Jo Malone but mom isn’t afraid of color. Lately she’s always with Trish McEvoy. Did you know Rosebud salve now comes in a TUBE? Amazing gift!

C. Shoes

She’s a total shoe freak and we aren’t talking sky high heels. Mom always scores the best and coolest pairs of flats. She has a bohemian chic style my sisters and I try endlessly to imitate {and usually fail}. She scored these Zanotti’s last year and I can’t stop myself from stealing them out of her closet.

D. All things Butterfly

She loves butterflies just like my grandmother did. We have a garden full of butterfly plants {milkweed attracts monarchs and we find caterpillars and cocoons all year long}! If it has a butterfly on it, odds are it will be perfect for mom! Just like this awesome stationery & labels on the e-store right now.

E. Orchids

Who can resist? She loves caring for these tropical plants. I’m missing her green thumb! Flowers by Jose Graterol Designs.

F. Dark Chocolate


Can I say more?  MarieBelle, yum.

Happy birthday mom! You are absolutely, positively the best.

Happy Cyber Monday!

    She shouldn’t mind you blogging about her birthday, as she somehow seems to get younger by the year. I swear, one day I really am going to walk into a photo store and see the Kantor family photo sitting in all the frames, taunting normal-looking people and persuading average consumers to buy the frames that hold them in the hopes of looking half as lovely.
    Happy birthday to your mama indeed.
