Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas



Flowers- I know everyone knows of this, but I love a beautiful floral arrangement. I like a bright and colorful arrangement. Then maybe use something unique for the vase like a mason jar. Make it special to your mom. You could use her favorite colors or her favorite flower.


Candle- Does your mom have candles all over her house like mine? Yes! Then why not get her another candle or two! Moms love their house smelling great! Use code: ALL4MAMA at Bath & Body Works for $10 off $30!  


Spa- Who doesn’t like a spa day? Our moms’ do so much for us, so why not treat her with a little pampering. Plus this can fit into whatever budget you have. It can be as small as a pedicure or an all-day package. I promise your mom will love either one!


Wine- This one is great because it can be all done online.  You can get your momma a wine of the month club membership. You can choose monthly, every other month, or every third month. The total for each option is $23.96 per shipment! What mom doesn’t like wine?



Affordable Ways to decorate for Fall


I don’t know about all of you, but I am OBSESSED with Fall. I mean what is there not to love!? Hoodies, bonfires, pumpkin EVERYTHING, and football! So as soon as there is a first cool day my fall decorating begins. I know we are all on a budget, so below you will find cheap way to decorate inside and outside. I did all this decorating for under $20.00!



Centerpiece: This gem was all from dollar store, and then a bit of spray paint. I already had candle holder, but I know you could find them fairly cheap. Then the leaves and pumpkins were all from my local dollar tree. Then I just spray painted the pumpkins and the rim on the candle holder. Once all dried I layered the leaves and pumpkins until the candle holder was full.  (Tip: Start the layering with the leaves)



Mums: You can find a Mum at your local home improvement store. Right now at Lowe’s there are 2 for $8.00.

Fake Pumpkin: I got this pumpkin at a local craft store called Michaels. Michaels always has very good coupons, so I picked up this pumpkin for $10.00

Must Haves to Make your Home Cozy


Favorite Candle– There is just something about a burning candle that I think just makes a home warm and inviting. I don’t know about you, but I am so PICKY about scents. So when I find a scent, I stock up and usually don’t change it. That is just what happened with me and Bath and Body Works Limoncello. On their website is is described as ” blend of fresh Sorrento lemons, cane sugar and a hint of lemon zest.” You can purchase it for $22.50.


Pictures– My family means so much to me, so I have a feature wall in my hallway. As I walk by it I just have a smile on my face. Seeing them all  on my wall makes me feel loved and genuinely lucky. To make a wall like mine you can buy different sizes of picture frames from discount stores and print pictures at Walgreens. Use the code ‘GREATPICS40’ until September 13th, 2016 to receive 40% off your prints!


Unique Pieces–  A unique piece can really be anything. Well anything that you can’t go to your local Target and buy. For me it usually means antique and vintage stores. I have a favorite local place that I can always find great pieces at. My favorite piece I ever bought is an old wooden window. It wasn’t in perfect condition it has chipping paint and a cracked glass, but something about it stands out to me. It is PERFECT to me, and really is one of those pieces I think makes my house a home.


Blanket– I am a sucker for a good blanket. You usually can find me if you look for a blanket. I am always under a blanket, and not always because I am cold. I just love the way they feel and how cozy they are. My favorite blankets are from Vera Bradley. They are very soft and warm, but not too warm. You can get them in a variety of colors and patterns for $49.00.
