Being told I look like my mother is by far one of the best compliments I’ve ever received. If only I had her effortless grace and cooking abilities to match. The photo below is of my mother infront of the iconic Taj Mahal, sometime in the late seventies.
Mothers and daughters share a very special bond, and I definitely don’t need a commercially whipped up Mother’s Day to tell her how much she means to me. However, going by convention, I wish her twice a year! You see, although the West celebrates Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May, the Arab world honors mothers on 21st March.
Have you bought your mother something special yet? Hurry! You only have this weekend to get yourself sorted! I have a list of ideas that might help… and these do away with the conventional gifting of bouquets and chocolate, I promise! Read on for more…
The Kenwood kMix Kitchen Machine
Kenwood has really upped their game with the kMix range! Apart from the range’s high-tech features, Kenwood keeps up with the fashion trend and each piece is an ode to retro chic. I love the colour range available, and if I were to choose one piece from the kMix range for my ‘Baking Queen’ mother, it would have to be their 5 liter kMix Machine.
The bright, happy retro colours will add cheer to any kitchen top! Read more about the kMix Kitchen Machine’s features on the Kenwood website.
Panasonic’s ES-ED 94 Relaxing Exfoliation & Epilation in Bath
This is no ordinary epilator, it is a 7-in-1! This wet-to-dry epilator can easily be used in the bath, has double the conventional number of epilating heads, and best of all, it comes with a brush attachment for overall body exfoliation, and a pumice attachment to keep the soles of the feet nice and soft! Read more on this multi-purpose product on the Panasonic website; you might want a second piece for yourself!
Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner by Lush
Ditch the bouquet and give mum the chance to bathe in the luxurious scent of rose. Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner by Lush is loaded with skin-loving ingredients that leaves the skin beautifully moisturized, and has a gorgeous, feminine whiff of rose.
It is also super easy to use. Just dab a generous amount all over the body after a shower (but before you towel dry), then rinse off! Pretty much like a hair conditioner, but for the skin and you don’t have to moisturize afterwards. Promise to do a thorough review on Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner real soon. Till then, go grab a pot for mum!
