Mothers day gift ideas galore: treat your mum, because she’s amazing

Are you looking for Mother's day gift ideas? Your mum is special to you. And even though she’s insisting that you ‘don’t need to spend too much’ or that she ‘doesn’t need anything,’ you want to spoil her anyway, right? If you have been searching for mothers day gifts on Google, you’re in the right place. 

Is your mum your go-to person? She’s there to listen when you need to celebrate, whinge, listen, help with stain removal, or clean your kitchen even though you’re a grown adult. She buys your favourite snacks, and she sends you cute text messages with too many emojis, but you wouldn’t have her any other way. Does she make the best lasagne, cakes or cheesy biscuits? Perhaps your relationship is complicated, or perhaps not. Nevertheless, you want to recognise the wonderful mum she is on this day. 

Is It OK To Buy My Own Valentines Gift?

This Valentines Day celebrate your own love for you. Buy your own Valentines gift. Forget the cheesy card though. That's not right. Don't buy yourself one of those.

You ARE allowed to think of yourself you know? You can buy your own Valentines present. Really. I give you permission. 

Don't be secretly disappointed when you don't receive something you deserve, take the pressure off and buy it for yourself.

What's the birthstone for September in Australia?
Blue Sapphire is the birthstone for September in Australia.

In the middle ages it was believed that sapphire had magic healing properties and it was ground up to use as an antidote to poison, to fix eye problems and to cure fevers, nosebleeds, ulcers and pretty much any illness.
Peridot is August birthstone and here are some things you may not know about Peridot
As peridot is my personal birthstone I knew that it's supposed to bring the wearer success, good luck and peace and also helps with health, protection and sleep. They say that peridot attracts love, soothes nerves and dispels anxiety. Pretty powerful stuff, but .. these amazing gems have even been found in meteorites....

Why You Need Hoops for 2018
What makes hoop earrings so appealing? Well, for starters, they’re easy to pair with almost anything, from peasant blouses to maxi dresses to slinky numbers. You can even wear a pair with your swimmers while chilling at the beach! This is one of those cases where size does matter, though. Plan on wearing your shoulder-sweeping hoops with dresses; medium-sized ones go great with every day looks or off-the-shoulder tops. Opt for smaller hoops if you’re also planning on wearing a headband and sunnies.
Now this classic accessory is making a comeback (or never left, for many of us), you’ll need to pick up a fresh pair. We encourage you to think outside the circle and choose hoops boasting features like pearls and tassels, interesting textures, spikes, colours and more.
