Can you believe it’s already May?! That means that Mother’s Day is around the corner and this year I wanted to do something extra special for my mom and really show her how much I love and appreciate her.
My mom is seriously the best. Anyone who knows her or has met her always tells me that I have the best mom, and I truly do. She is my not only my best friend but my biggest supporter. She really has always encouraged and supported me in anything I wanted to do or be. From driving me to and from dance classes every night growing up to moving me out to LA at 18 to go to fashion school. Now she is the woman behind the camera (and more) for this blog, helps me with Amber Spray Tans and puts up with my weekly meltdowns haha…but really though. I am so so grateful for her and I know I don’t tell her enough. So I am very happy to partner with PANDORA Jewelry to be able to give her a gift that is not only beautiful but meaningful.
My mom is my FAVORITE shopping partner and has been since I was young. Most girls usually went to the mall with their friends but I went with my mom. We both love to shop and have fun doing it! I definitely got my love of fashion from my mama. So taking her shopping at the PANDORA store in Park Meadows Mall is a very “us” way to celebrate Mother’s Day. The ladies in the store were so sweet and helpful. They got to know us and what we like so that they could help us find and personalize our jewelry. All of the Mother’s Day gift sets were so pretty it was honestly hard to choose our favorites.
We liked the PANDORA Floating Locket because it’s adjustable in length and you can personalize what’s in the locket.
My mom really fell in love with the PANDORA Rose mixed with the sterling silver for her In My Heart Bracelet Gift Set. The Open Bangle Bracelet was one piece that really stood out because you can wear it two ways, the open part facing out or add a charm on the other side and flip it around. She is also wearing the Brilliant Bow Ring and Cosmic Lines Ring.
PANDORA celebrates life’s special moments and it this got me thinking about some of my favorite moments with my mom. I loved watching her put on her makeup growing up. I used to (still do sometimes) sit curled up in the corner and just talk with her about school, boys or anything that was going on while she got ready. One of my absolute favorite childhood memories with her is blasting music and having dance parties in our living room. Those are memories I’ll cherish forever.
As I get older I have a better perspective of how difficult being a parent can be. I don’t think you ever truly understand until you actually are a parent yourself but I am still in awe of my mom and what an amazing parent she has been. I love to look back and see how our relationship has grown and changed over the years and I feel so lucky that I have had her by my side through all of my milestones, hardships and everything in between.
While shopping for my mom I couldn’t help but fall in love with the PANDORA Shine Collection. I knew that I had to have the Honeybee Choker, it’s so perfect for everyday layering and the Enchanted Tiara Ring. All of the pieces stack and layer together so nicely and metal mixing is encouraged!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! Especially mine, I love you!
