...even though my mother likes to remind me, everyday is Mother's Day
I'll always remember listening to this song while driving through the hills and vineyards of the south of France. I love the feeling when you hear a song, no matter how old it is, and it reminds you of a certain moment and you can remember everything about it perfectly. I vividly remember forcing my mother, father and brother to listen to the new Spice Girls CD on that 12 hour drive to the Provence in summer of 2002.
I remember the distinct provencal lavender smell and my mother obsessing over how she wished she could bottle it up and make it into a perfume.
Mama by the Spice Girls
My brother and I got my mother the perfume Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs. I originally wanted to get her the new Balenciaga body lotion --- (it was sold out!) but anyway Eau So Fresh made a much better gift and the bottle is beautiful!
Pretty much everything by Marc Jacobs is spectacular.
Take a look at this video I found of some London taxis that are decorated to advertise Eau So Fresh!
I would die to be in one of them. I also just enjoy this video and it makes me wish I was in London even more!
Mother's Day isn't only about gifts...
Haha, it's also a day that you prove to your mother that
you are capable of making more than just pasta!
Wherever you are in the world,
Have a marvelous mother's day!
Even if you and your mother don't get along and you cannot stand the sound of your mother's voice, at the end of the day, your mother will always be your best friend. I know for a fact, I wouldn't know half the things that I know or be half the person that I am today without my mother...Would you?
