There is nothing like a Mom! I adored mine and celebrated her every chance I got till she died suddenly three years ago. Now Mother’s Day has special resonance for me. With my Mom, gone but never far, I always commemorate the woman that she was and the great Love, that we shared for each other.
I attended this years’s Accessories Council ACTOPPICKS for Mother’s Day event, hosted by the absolutely hilarious Alison Lang and always entertaining Accessories Council President Karen Gibberson. I love these events because we see tons of trends and great gifts and products in a quick presentation. For this session, we were introduced to some stunning pieces that would make perfect gifts for your Moms. If you’re like me, then you are a last minute shopper so order one of these gifts by Friday, to make sure it is her in time.
