I’m dedicating my May Edit to Mother’s Day, which lands on the 14th of this month. Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the strength and beauty of all the mothers in our lives. My mother, Marcella, has inspired me to live my life the way I do and I’m so grateful for all she has given me and sacrificed for me. She’s also one of the reasons I became so fascinated with effective actives that create ageless skin and she was even the person who came up with the idea for two of our best-selling products: holi (mane) and holi (bright).
If you’re looking for ideas on where to take your mom on Mother’s Day or what to get her, look no further! In today’s edit, I’ve compiled a list of places that are perfect for spending quality time with your mom and some gifts that I know she’ll love too.
Mr Chow, Beverly Hills
Mr Chow’s is one of the most iconic dining destinations in Los Angeles and undoubtedly a memorable spot for Mother’s Day with your mom. Their menu has so many delicious Chinese dishes, from seafood and dim sum to their famous Beijing duck, which is carved tableside. The interiors are so beautiful, too, and you’ll find a number of original artworks adorning the space.
Chiltern Firehouse, London
Whenever I’m in London, I always try to stop by Chiltern Firehouse for lunch or dinner. Located in a historic fire station in the charming neighborhood of Marylebone, they have a beautiful courtyard outside, which is perfect during the spring and summer months. I’d suggest ordering some oysters to share with your mom to start your Mother’s Day lunch.
I recently met with one of the top compounding pharmacists in the country who holds the only transdermal glutathione patent in the world. I truly believe in this man’s work and encourage everyone to try his glutathione.
What is Glutathione? Glutathione (GSH), often known as the master antioxidant, is a naturally occurring tri-peptide amino acid that is the second most abundant molecule in the body – the first is water. Glutathione is vital to your well-being because it supports cellular health and is your first line of defense in fighting free radicals and eliminating toxins from the body.
Glutathione IVs barely enter the red blood cells. It stays in the water and plasma of the blood and is excreted through the kidneys. This Glutaryl Antioxidant Spray delivers high doses of glutathione and has helped a significant amount of people with brain fog and autoimmune conditions. I use two sprays in the morning and two at night on my abdomen. I’ve even seen improvements in my sleep. Let me know how you and your mom find it!
This beautiful teapot, which features an intricate design inspired by the streets of Paris, is made by the renowned French porcelain manufacturer, Bernardaud. I think it’s an excellent gift for any mom who loves Paris (just like mine!). You can see the famous Parisian landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, and the Louvre Museum, as part of the design. It’s a gift that your mom will cherish and you can use it every time you visit her for a cozy afternoon catching up over a cup of tea.
The perfect complement to the Bernardaud Paris Scene Teapot is this exquisite tea blend from Mariage Frères. This black tea is infused with bergamot and blue flowers and the aroma is light, fresh, and floral, with a subtle citrus note. To top it off, the blue flowers add a delicate sweetness. The packaging is beautiful too, making it a lovely gift that your mom can add to her kitchen counter.
I’m currently in love with this Chanel Mini Flap Bag, which would make such a beautiful gift for Mother’s Day. It comes in two beautiful spring colors, light blue or orange, in a beautiful tweed fabric. It’s super timeless and hopefully, your mom will let you share it with her!
For the ultimate indulgent body care combination that every mother will love, my holi (wash) and body (balm) is the perfect gift. I’ve personally been using this combination without fail on a daily basis because these products give me the sexiest skin ever. holi (wash) is Agent’s ageless resurfacing foaming oil body cleanse that gently decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, all while keeping the skin deliciously hydrated. The body (balm) is our lifting and firming treatment creme. I love to use it on damp skin as the texture glides perfectly as you pour it onto the body. It feels like you’re giving yourself a massage.
