with the 'White Company'

Happy Friday everyone!  
Always a good feeling when you know that the weekend is in sight!

I am particularly looking forward to this weekend, as it is my daughter Georgie's 27th birthday.  With her older brother having turned 29 earlier this has been a nostalgic few days, with us wondering where on earth the years have disappeared!  One minute they are babies, and the next they are all grown up and out in the world.  

Alongside birthday celebrations for her on Sunday, we shall be joined by my lovely mother for a Mother's Day celebration too.  We three girls have been promised a work free day from the kitchen, feet up with a glass of something bubbly and 'Mr. W' and youngest son cooking up a feast in the kitchen....I can hardly wait!  Eldest son is sadly not with us this year as he lives in Singapore, but not long now until a special family holiday reunion coming up!

So what do we Mums really want gift wise for this special day?  I think that if you ask any of us, we truly just want our families with us, or to at least know that they are healthy and happy, and of course, a heartfelt card is always lovely!

  If however you would like to spoil your lovely Mum on Sunday, here are a few last minute gift ideas from 'The White Company' that I for one would be thrilled to receive!

Above is the beautiful Porto Stoneware collection and what better way to show someone you love them, than with a heart shaped dish. Perfect for so many things in the kitchen, but would also make a beautiful accessory on a table top, perhaps filled with those special treasures?

How lovely is this Cotton Pom-Pom Scarf?  The perfect Spring accessory that's both fun and stylish.  In a beautiful pale grey, it is perfect with most things in your Spring wardrobe, and well, who can resist a pom-pom?

Something pampering is always a lovely choice.  Making time for a long hot soak in the bath is something that mothers at all stages of life truly appreciate!  Not always easy, especially with little ones growing up, and busy lives, but something we should all make time for.  The White Company Spa range is just gorgeous, with delicious oils of Neroli, Geranium and Eucalyptus.  A real treat, and a lovely way to bring that Spa experience in to your own bathroom.

This gorgeous Leather Crescent Make-up Bag certainly caught my eye and is so lovely that it would also make a pretty clutch or jewellery travel case.  Such a gorgeous shade of blush pink too!

Lastly candles....can we ever have too many?
I particularly love the new season's Spring candle, with beautiful notes of honeysuckle, rose, jasmine and lilac with a hint of mown grass.  A gorgeous aroma of my favourite season and perfect for any room in the house I think.  

I do hope that you all have a lovely Mother's Day on Sunday.  Even if you are not a Mum yourself, or yours is sadly no longer with you, why not show yourself a little self love and treat yourself anyway or a special friend, just to show how much you appreciate them?  Whatever you have planned, have a lovely relaxing and spoiling day!

Until next time....
