My teenage daughter usually ask me, ” what I want on Mother’s Day? And my reply would be, ” a clean house everyday lol” I keep telling to her that I don’t need anything in terms of material things. I said to her to save her money instead.
I’m sure every mum feels the same. Once you became a mum, you don’t think about yourself anymore. You probably couldn’t care or have time to make yourself looks nice or beautiful. And you probably feel it’s a waste of money to treat yourself to a new clothes or anything you just want but don’t need as your priority is always your children first.
But I’m sure you would love to be pampered a little bit, to treat yourself with new clothes, spa, day out or something to make you feel relax and special.

Mother’s Day is always a difficult one to choose a present for. I adore my Mum, her help with everything is immeasurable: from cooking guidance, to child raising advise and relationship help. Buying a present which shows how much I love her would be impossible.
I have been looking around for something meaningful or something which would be appreciated:
- If you are thinking chocolates for Mum, then I always say go with Thorntons: classy and well known for their quality without breaking the bank.
- If your Mum is a tea lover then how about a selection box from Twinings? I have the favourite teas and the fruit tea variety and absolutely love them all and at £10 a box they are very well priced! If you wanted something a bit more special they do them in beautiful wooden boxes or you can get hampers, but those are of course more expensive.
- You may remember I did a video on ways to wear a pashmina? The pashmina I used was kindly supplied by Accessory Insanity, it was an amazing quality Pashmina and they have a huge selection of colours from which you could pick the perfect colour way for Mum. They also have some stunningly beautiful bags/purses or jewellery which would make any Mum so happy.
- While we are talking jewellery, if you want something top quality and beyond beautiful for Mum check out up-coming jewellery designer Georgina Zupnik. Her designs are a bit different but I love them all.
I hope this has given you some ideas for what Mum might like. I am a Mummy myself and would love to receive any of these.

One thing you need lots of when the kids start nursery/school is name labels! I have 2 children at school and everything has to be labelled: clothes, shoes, pe kit, trainers, the bag it goes in, lunch boxes, snack boxes, drink bottles…everything!
A sharpie pen works well for a while, but does run when you write on some materials and does wipe off quickly on some materials. I have found the best solution are sticky labels, like these from mynametags.com:
You get 56 of these to a sheet (for £11.95 + p&p), which should last you the first year or so of school. You can change the background design, the font and the picture on the side. The picture is great for preschool/reception children before they recognise their names. The text is quite small, it gets smaller the more letters you add so perhaps put: Jack S instead of their full name if they struggle to read small letters.
The labels can be used on snack pots or drinks bottles and are dishwasher friendly so won’t come off. They can also be used on clothing, washing machine safe and shoes, which is great they don’t get the sticky residue which some leave behind.
These labels last really well and are well sized for fitting on everything, not too big and not too small!

My husband and I love a good curry, but not too spicy! I decided to try the new Asda range “A Taste of…” and we decided to handmake some naan bread (store bought just doesn’t cut it for us.
The curry is pretty straight forward since it is out of a jar: part fry the chicken, add the powdered spice mix from in top of the jar
Once the chicken is throughly cooked stir in the liquid sauce from the jar.
I also made Naan Bread to go with the curry:
2tsp active yeast
3 cup plain flour
1 tsp sugar
1/2 cup water (lukewarm)
1/2 cup milk (lukewarm)
2tbsp butter cut into small pieces
Put water and sugar in bowl, mix well and add yeast, leave for 10 minutes until it is covered in froth.
Add the milk, oil, salt and flour until dough comes together.
Add the butter and mix gently, you still want lumps of butter, just well mixed up.
Cover with clingfilm and put in a warm place for an hour
After an hour is should have doubled in size. Split into approx 6 pieces and stretch out onto a baking tray
Stab several times with a fork and cook at 180 Celsius for 10 minutes
So much better than shop bough Naan Bread, and cheaper than getting some from the takeaway.
Just writing up about this meal makes me want to have it again, it was so delicious!!

I was sent this calpol vapour plug sample to try and test from BzzAgent. This was a perfect timing as well as we have colds and cough when we received it so I thought let’s see if it’s effective.
It’s simple to use just open the refil pads included in the pack ( has 5 refil pads that last up to 8 hours per pad ) then insert the pad into the slot using the foil to hold the pad. I use my finger tip in pushing it into the slot.
Then plug it in and a nightlight will be activated at night.
Allow 60-90 minutes for vapour to fill the room. I plug ours in the hallway as the room is on the left and right of it and just leave both doors open. The vapour has a blend aromatic oil including lavender, chamomile, menthol, camphor and eucalyptus.
This help to soothe and ease breathing especially when you have colds and cough. I find this effective and really helpful during the time we have colds.
