Mother’s Day is right around the corner so get that gift ordered stat!  Let’s be honest… these are really things that I’m currently wanting, but I think they’d make great gifts for moms too!

Gold Confetti Tumblers – set of 2 for $20 from Paper Source.  Whether she drinks Diet Dr. Pepper or whiskey straight, it will taste better sipping from these glasses.  Obviously.

Tom Ford lip color – $52 at Nordstrom.  The Sable Smoke, Spanish Pink, and Bare Peach colors are my top picks… but really they’re all lovely!  A bit pricey for a lipstick, but a luxurious splurge for any mom!

Capri Blue Iridescent Jar Candle – $28 at Anthropologie.  I’m particularly fond of the “Volcano” scent, but you really can’t go wrong with any of them.

Aldalora Throw – $128 at Anthropologie.  Can’t get over the cozy.  Pair this throw with a good book and if you’re not mom’s favorite already, you will be.

Jo Malone ‘Nectarine Blossom & Honey’ Body Crème – $75 at Nordstrom.  I own a couple Jo Malone products, but I don’t yet have the Nectarine Blossom scent and I’m craving it for Spring/Summer.  Simply divine.

MUMM Napa Brut Reserve Rose – $39   Mumm for the Mum!  Because it’s pink, and bubbly, and yummy.  Happiness in a bottle.

Jo Malone ‘Nectarine Blossom & Honey’ Cologne (1oz) – $65 at Nordstrom.  Last time I quizzed the sales clerk, the Nectarine Blossom scent was the best selling Jo Malone fragrance in the U.S.  So there’s a good chance your mom will love it too.

Cashmere Travel Wrap by White and Warren – $298 at Anthropologie.  Mom a traveler?  There nothing more practical and posh than a cashmere wrap.

The perfect card.  There are so many great ones to choose from at Paper Source!  Prices range from $3.50-$8.

February is the perfect month to celebrate love, and we’re going to start by dressing your kisser in this month’s colors– pink, red, and sparkles!  I dug around my makeup drawer to share my top picks for lovely lips.

From left to right by row: 

  • Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain in No. 7 Corail Aquatique $36.  I bought my first YSL glossy stain a couple years ago, and I’ve gone through a few since.  I’m not a huge fan of the packaging, but the formula is good and there are a ton of color options.
  • Burberry Kisses Lipstick in No. 17 English Rose $33.  As I’ve mentioned before (seesmokey” post), I love Burberry products and this lipstick is no exception.  Be sure to let the product sit on your lips a couple minutes before you judge it.  As it warms it melts into a creamy smooth texture in the most perfect soft rose color.   consistency.
  • Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain in No. 27 Peche Cerra-Cola $36.
  • Tarte LipSurgence lip gloss in Blushing Bride $19.  (Or it comes as part of a cute little “wedding day essentials” set currently on sale for $39, originally $49.)  The gloss is a bit sticky on the sticky side.  I admit, it’s not my favorite texture-wise, but I love the color and dewy shine.
  • Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Honey $24.  Kind of pricey for what is in essence a tinted lip balm, but lovely nonetheless.  The texture is great and they smell ah-mazing!
  • Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer in Color 302 $38.  This was one of my Fall/Winter 2015 purchases, and it quickly became a favorite (see it here on the @juniperlemons Instagram!).  It is a wearable orangey-red color with the slightest hint of gold shimmer and awesome staying power.
  • Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Yu (bright pink) $26.  Bold, bright, statement-making color. Yass!
  • Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Cherry $24.
