Mother’s Day Gifts

As Mother’s Day rolls around, Reid invariably asks me what I want at some point. I usually ask for a massage or homemade cards. This year I asked for some jewelry like the kind my mother used to wear, lots of pearls in the form of elegant rings and earrings. LAGOS Jewelry has been a favorite for a while now, for both their quality and assortment of jewelry. I don’t like bulky jewelry or lots of hearts, so when I saw these dainty, detailed, and studded pieces, I fell in love. I don’t know what I love more, the rings, the bracelet, or the necklace? All of them? I hope to pass my jewelry to my daughters just like my mom passed some of hers to me. LAGOS Jewelry has that timelessness that I look for when scouting out jewelry, and I’m always thrilled when I add one of their pieces to my collection.
This Mother’s Day I’m so grateful for my Mom who put up with my teenage attitude and awkward stages, and continues to be selfless in serving her kids and grandkids. Isn’t motherhood the most beautiful adventure? I think it is. And the weird thing is, I really will miss these days of floors cluttered with annoying blocks or hundreds of frozen peas, constant bickering but also constant hugs and kisses. Happy almost Mother’s Day to the moms, the grandmothers, and those who wish to be mothers. We appreciate you!

I get asked SO many times where my special necklaces are from, so I thought I’d line them up for you.

The round one with the hidden crystal is from Adornmonde, the round circle and “mama” sign is from Tiny Tags. and Finally the letters to my kids initials is from Maya Brenner.

I love having a part of my kids around my neck to always remember them. No matter if we are apart. And my kids love seeing their names on my necklaces. After I had Levi, I sent in my letter necklace to Maya Brenner and they added an “L,” how cool is that?

These make great baby shower, mother’s day or Christmas gifts. Speaking of, Christmas is 58 days away . . .

When the Apple Watch came out, I thought, wow that’s cool, but why is the strap so ugly? So, I searched and didn’t find much of a solution other than a sporty version. Enter the Lagos Smart Caviar Watch Bracelet. First of all, it looks like a bracelet! The sterling silver band and double clasp makes it stunning and sturdy. How pretty is it styled with a stack of gorgeous Lagos bracelets? Have you seen their snake ring? Obsessed. I digress. There are a couple reasons I justify this somewhat hefty purchase:

1. The cost per wear is amazing. If I wear this watch 350 days of the year, each day costs $2.71 to wear it. Much less than your overpriced caffeine addiction.

2. This is the prettiest Apple watch strap I have ever seen. I’ve yet to see competition that lines up to this caliber. I can wear this to a meeting, out to dinner and off to soccer practice the next day. While it is sterling silver fine jewelry, it still goes with what I’m wearing. From blazers and suits to shorts and a t-shirt, the Lagos Smart Caviar goes with everything! The Lagos tagline, “My Lagos, my way” means that you can mix and match styles and stack your jewelry in any way to create your own unique look. The best news? There is no wrong way to wear your Lagos.

3. Perfect marriage of beauty and function. It is not only beautiful sterling silver, but it has an adjustable strap that perfectly holds up to the wear and tear of my busy life as a mom of 5.

If you’re hesitant, don’t take my word for it, just try it on and you’ll love the look! I love it layered as shown here. Layering your jewelry has been “in” for a while, and here I’m wearing my favorite drop earrings and bracelets to compliment the watch bracelet. Christmas is 98 days away, and this Lagos Smart Caviar Watch Bracelet. is THE perfect Christmas or birthday gift!
