I never know what to get my mom because for the past few big holidays, whatever I got her she made me go return it. She just doesn't like me spending money on her, especially when it's not something she picked out herself. This year, instead of the usual dinner that we have, I'm going to try something different - DIY at-home pamper... and then dinner lol. Here are the steps I'm taking...

Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Therapy, Rowenta Beauty Versastyle Styler
I'm going to bring this with me anyway just in case she is also in the mood for me to style her hair. The Rowenta Beauty Versastyle is perfect because I can straighten or curl her hair. Of course you need a heat protectant for that and I'm currently trying the Garnier Thermo Curl Spray*. Also, a hair treatment to just prep the hair and I think my mom is going to like how soft her hair would be with the Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Treatment.
Now this is all my plan anyway, how far would my mom let me work on her is another story. My goal is to at least give her a mani, brows, mascaras, and lips. Let's see if she will let it happen (fingers crossed).
On to my actual gift, don't laugh, but this is probably what she wants...
What can I say, my mom is VERY practical.
Last but not least, a little sign from me... which I know she will love :).
That's it! That is what I planned to do with my mom on Mother's Day. Have you planned/bought anything for her yet? Let me know how you're going to spend the day with her!
Until next time,
