Pampering Pedicure for Mother’s Day

Ashley_MothersDay4

Mother’s Day. I love taking the day to honor and celebrate my mom, the woman who has invested so much of her life into mine; the woman who has sacrificed and given above and beyond. I love to spend the whole day pampering and loving on her. Over the years I’ve given her a variety of gifts – candles, flowers, gift certificates and chocolates. I wanted to do something a little bit different this year.  I thought it would be fun to give her some beauty products. Because what woman doesn’t love beauty products?! I found everything I needed at Family Dollar and for fantastic prices.

The idea for beauty products started when I spotted this adorable black and white striped makeup bag.  I am obsessed with anything black and white striped right now!

There is nothing better than a good lip gloss.  I found a hot pink shade that will look great with my mom’s complexion! I also picked up a clear gloss that she can put over her favorite lipstick.

I included one of my favorite mascaras –  Maybelline’s Great Lash in Very Black.  It’s a great mascara that doesn’t clump and it makes your lashes look amazing!

I had initially added a single bottle of pink nail polish, but then I found this little treasure near the checkout – an Ombré Nail Kit! There was a kit for pinks, purples and also blues.  I picked up the blue kit since blue is my mom’s favorite color.  I thought this would make such a fun and summery look for her toes!

And here’s what the gift looked like all put together.

In addition to giving this gift I thought it would be fun to include a homemade gift certificate saying that I would give my mom a pedicure using the new Ombré Nail Kit.

What are some of the ways you love to celebrate the mothers in your life?

Let’s take a day to honor and pamper them!

Happy Mother’s Day!
