Gifting YSL Opium for Mother’s Day

Thank you to Macy’s for partnering with Cort in Session to make this post possible. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Mother’s Day is TWO days away, y’all. And if you’re like me, you’re a bit of a procrastinator. Luckily for us, there is still plenty of time to swing by your local Macy’s and pick all the moms in your life up the easiest gift of designer fragrance. I covered my favorite pick yesterday, but I wanted to make sure you didn’t forget your mother-in-law! I am so lucky to be so close with mine and it’s not often enough that we get to tell her how much she means to us. We’re planning a little get together with both moms on Sunday to catch up, give gifts, and really let them know how special they are to us.

If anyone is hard to shop for, it’s my mother-in-law. Bless her heart, she is so sweet and much more a giver than a receiver, but I think she is going to LOVE YSL’s Opium. It’s sweet and spicy – just like her – with an exotic blend of lush florals, rich spices, and deep wood notes. Macy’s has a ton of selection in this fragrance including eau de parfum, eau de toilette, rich body cream, and body moisturizer so you really can’t go wrong.

But if you’re still in a bind, be sure to check out Macy’s beauty and fragrance gift guide HERE and stop by the Macy’s beauty counter to get the moms in your life the gift of designer fragrance.


Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas with Macy’s

Thank you to Macy’s for partnering with Cort in Session to make this post possible. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

It’s that time of year again to give back to the woman who does everything for you and asks for nothing in return. And although she claims that there is nothing she needs, you know that she’ll be undeniably smitten when she receives the perfect gift from you, her favorite child. Yes, I am of course talking about Mother’s Day.

Each year, I feel that it becomes trickier and trickier to pick out something for my mom that she won’t return. But a designer fragrance from Macy’s is hands-down, the best no-fail Mother’s Day gift. My mom has her tried and true favorites but this year I’m gifting her Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb, a fragrance I know that she is going to love. Flowerbomb is a warm and sweet explosion of flowers with hints of vanilla, amber, sambac jasmine, freesia, and centifolia rose. Macy’s has a ton of selection for this fragrance as well including eau de parfum, precious oils, roller balls, hair mist, body cream, and more. Viktor & Rolf even created a pearl pink limited edition bottle that is exclusive to Macy’s. Plus if you spend over $165, you’ll receive a complimentary four-piece Viktor & Rolf gift set.


Cinco de Mayo Looks at Every Price Point



Dress: Buddy Love c/o | Earrings: J.Crew | Wedges: Nordstrom | Bag: Tory Burch |  Sunglasses: Karen Walker

It’s the first day of May, y’all! Can you believe it? And if you’re like me, you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect outfit to pair with your margarita. I mean who doesn’t love a holiday that revolves around tequila? Luckily, there is still time to snag a look for Cinco de Mayo and get it in time for the holiday. I went with this adorable embroidered dress from Buddy Love. The details won me over and all I need now is a sombrero to match!

If you’re more of a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, Buddy Love has the best graphic tees for Cinco de Mayo like this colorful Tacos & Tequilas tank and this Queso Queen tee. But if you’re looking to splurge on the cutest off-the-shoulder dress, this striped mini is my favorite! All of these looks are perfect for transitioning into summer and have me dreaming of beaches south of the border.

Keep reading for all of my picks!
