Mothers Day Gift Guide with Buchanan Galleries

This Sunday is Mothers Day, of course you should make your mum feel special all year round but Mothers Day is the day you can go all out and spoil your mum! Myself and mum have a fantastic relationship and every Saturday you will find us in town together doing our favourite thing - shopping! I completely blame her for my shopping addiction! My mum is really lucky in that Mothers Day always falls around her Birthday so she gets double treats.|

If you want to make your mum feel marvellous this year and need some inspiration look no further than the
Buchanan Galleries gift finder. Tailored specifically for mums, it offers the best gifts that are sure to make your mum happy, from candles to chocolates and cameras to clutch bags.
online gift finder is simple to use with a host of different categories to choose from including foodies, fashion and footwear. You can also use the price scale to ensure it comes in on budget and find the perfect gift for your mum.
Myself and my Mum (Jean) were lucky enough to be invited along to Buchanan Galleries on Tuesday for an early Mothers Day treat and to check out all the amazing Mothers Day gifts available.

Our day started off with a mini makeover courtesy of 
Bare Minerals
. The lovely Paula talked us through the skincare range and make up available and then both myself and my mum were given makeovers.

After our makeover it was onto our favourite thing - shopping!!!! 
Buchanan Galleries were kind enough to supply us with gift card to indulge in our favourite pastime and we indulged....... :) My mum went crazy in her favourite store Next and me in H&M (outfit pics to follow
!) We then checked out the gifts available in the other stores and mentally added them to our wish lists (need all the Pandora rings!).

Buchanan Galleries gift cards are an amazing Mothers Day gift idea. Everyone is catered for with a sparkling line up of over 90 stores offering everything from fashion and footwear to toys and technology. They are also ideal gifts for other occasions and for all ages.

After our afternoon of shopping my mums next treat was a blow-dry from Supercuts. The lovely Niamh looked after my mum and she absolutely loved her style.

After our hard day of being pampered and shopping we retired to the 
360 Champagne and Cocktail Bar for afternoon tea. The perfect place to visit between or after shopping. I mean who doesn't love champagne, cocktails and cake??!!!

This year you have no excuses for not spoiling you mum on Mothers day as the Buchanan Galleries gift finder has you covered. The
centre is open until 7pm every evening except Thursday when it stays open until 8pm and Sunday when the shops close at 6pm.

So what are you waiting for - get yourself down there or even better take your mum along and treat her to some of the pampering my mum got to enjoy (no bookings required). And to all the lovely mums out there, especially mine - have a fantastic Mothers Day!!! And another special thanks to my mum for being the model for the day :)

Lots of love, peace and sparkles

Special thanks to Yasmin at Stripe Communication and Buchanan Galleries for the wonderful day out we had and all the special treats for myself and my mum.

Outfit Of The Day - Love Too True

Dress - Love Too True // T-shirt - Primark//
Choker - Primark // Shoes - Topshop

One of my fashion motto's is 'If you love something then buy it in every colour. That is definitely the case when it comes to Love Too True and their slip dresses. I want and need every colour!

Love Too True is run by two sisters, Gemma and Laura, who hand-make all the items. I was introduced to the brand when Lyn (my blog crush!) featured them in her Clueless meets Jurassic Park Post and I instantly fell in love with their designs. 

After purchasing their Burberry-esque slip dress I knew I needed more of their designs and was lucky enough to receive the yellow tartan slip featured in the photographs as a Christmas gift. I was lucky as not long after Christmas this tartan was discontinued. But fear not...... the girls now have a new yellow checked slip dress available which is equally as gorgeous! 

Who better to show you how to style the new yellow checked slip dress then the lady who introduced me to the brand - Lyn. We decided to feature the brand together on our blogs and spent a very cold and windy Sunday morning together shooting the dresses. The things you do for your art! Can we all take a minute to appreciate how amazing Lyn looks in the new design and how well she styled it!!!!!

I already have a list of items I need to purchase from the Love Too True and can't wait to add to my collection. I hope you love the brand as much as me and Lyn do.

Until next time lots of love, peace and sparkles.....
