Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and with the holiday fast approaching I was thrilled to attend Sears’ Fall 2012 preview, and check out the some of the hot new items that are being offered this season. I never really thought of Sears as a go-to place for beauty products, but I quickly learned that they offer many different cosmetics and fragrances at low prices that make perfect gifts.
I was very surprised at how much I loved the scent of Justin Bieber Someday EDP1.7 OZ/50ML, $45.00 at sears.com. It has a light, sugary-sweet fruit scent that is addicting to women of all ages. I had previously stayed away from the fragrance when it first came out, because any product Bieber comes out with inevitably ends up in the hands of girls who use body glitter, have their hair in pigtails, and use crayons to imitate putting on lipstick. But, this scent’s energetic sweetness of juicy mandarin, pear, and wild berries; combined with flowers, vanilla and soft musk is worth a try. Also, check out the cute floral cap and super cute chain that comes with the bottle.
I love doing my nails at home. I only splurge on salon visits when I’m going somewhere really special, and don’t have the time to dedicate to painting my nails myself. Sears carries a brand called Academy of Colour, which has a line of do-it-yourself nail kits for just $8.00, that include everything you need to create a French manicure or elaborate designs.
Academy of Colour also has a line of eye collections ($8.00 at Sears), that includes an application guide so you can get a gorgeous eye makeup look.
Another perfect gift is Jasmine La Belle Gold 23pc Cosmetic Beauty Journal. This makeup collection comes with 18 shades of eyeshadow, 2 blushes, 2 foundation colors, 1 applicator, and a mirror, all for just $4.98 at Sears! The cosmetic Beauty Journal looks like a cute little clutch, and is perfect for traveling , or for on-the-go beauty.
After you buy all your makeup, why not put them in chic makeup pouches? These pouches sold at Sears for $20, are available in a set of three sizes, and already come tied with a bow. Now that’s a great gift!
Mother’s Day – the one time of year I dread as I spend countless hours of the days leading up to it, mulling over what to get for my mom, who has everything and wants nothing. After weeks of wondering, searching, asking and now finally finding, I am relieved that I will be able to shower her with the perfect gift I’m sure she’ll adore (but what that gift is shall remain a secret in case she becomes technically savvy and figures out how to use the internet and read this blog). Anyway, during my search, I starting thinking that there must be plenty of other people out there going through the same thing, so I have scoured the web to find the best, inexpensive gifts that any mom would treasure and love to receive.
This chocolate gift set lets you wish your mom a happy Mother’s Day with beautifully decorated petits fours. Now that’s a sweet way to let her know how you feel!
If you mom love flowers or gardening, then she will love this Watering Can gift set, featuring Sweat Pea, Bath & Body’s award winning fragrance. The tin comes filled with a full-size Signature Collection Shower Gel (10 oz.), Body Lotion (8 oz.), Fragrance Mist (8 oz.), and Bubble Bath (10 oz.) An adorable flower sponge and a Scentportable is also included in the set.
What woman doesn’t love jewelry? Honor your mother with a stunning “eternity” pendant (chain included), featuring diamond-cut Austrian crystals. The greatest thing about this gift is the box it comes in displays a heartfelt message which reads:
A Mother’s Love Is Forever
A Precious Gift To Treasure
Warmth On Which You Can Depend
Like This Sparkling Circle, It Has No End
Enjoy, and Happy Mother’s Day to the wonderful women out there who have given us the gift of life!
