Mother's Day is one of those times in the year - like Easter, like Thanksgiving, like Christmas ... where the GRATITUDE vibes get turned up.
We've been hearing all of the Sunday plans this week - gifts (obviously) to breakfasts in bed, long lunches to days out and about ... Mother's Day is just a wonderful opportunity to reflect on, and share why your Mumma is so important to you.
In store, we're loving the sentiment of the quote by Abraham Lincoln ... "All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother." We got to chatting, and asked each other ...
How has your Mother inspired you to #EscapeTheOrdinary?
Mum is one of my best friends. Living in different states, we only see each other a few times a year but those times are always special. We certainly make up for the distance chatting on the phone numerous times a week. I admire her creativity, her kindness and her wicked sense of humour. My Mum raised four strong, independent daughters which is a true testament to the love, support and encouragement we received (and continue to receive) from her over the years.
Favourite Dwell Store collection for Mother's Day? Aesop is always a beautiful gifting choice and a perfect way to spoil Mum. The products are a treat to use everyday and always so well received.
My Mum is a super-woman! She is the hardest working woman I know but at the same time, is the most generous, kind and caring person in the world too. My Mum's dedication to her career whilst supporting our family has inspired to never give up, no matter how hard a situation can be.
Favourite Dwell Store collection for Mother's Day? Maison Balzac. This collection is new to Dwell and I am loving it; especially the Bonne Nuit candle and room spray - the organic lavender oil in both of them create such a calming scent that is perfect for bedtime.
My Mum has a Filipino heritage, so from a very young age, us kids were encouraged to try many strange and unusual foods! Looking back, I can see how this simple act has greatly influenced my mindset across many areas of my life. Trying new things and being open minded can bring unexpected joy and I'm so grateful to my Mum for teaching me this.
Favourite Dwell Store collection for Mother's Day? Slip is a long-term favourite of mine. I use the pillowcases every night and will never go back to cotton! Each pillowcase is made from the highest grade silk, even the eye masks are filled with silk - so luxurious. Not only is it great for your skin but it is amazing for getting an extra day out of your hairstyles. I love recommending something tried and true as gifts, especially for that special someone who wouldn't normally treat themselves!
My personal style has definitely been inspired by my Mother. She has her own unique flavour which I think subconsciously gave me the confidence to create my own aesthetic. At home, she always combined meaningful pieces from the past (vintage china from my Grandmother and other family antiques) with contemporary items. Fashion wise, she is always head to toe in colour or print and favours 'outfits' rather than mix and match. This Mother's Day we'll be celebrating with 3 generations - Mum, myself & my daughter Clarity - I've booked a nice table at Catalina!
