April came and went in a blink of an eye. I seriously don’t even know what I did this month (insert Instagram – always a good reminder of where I was). This month I traveled to Miami with these two. We soaked up the sun and got some much needed R&R on the ocean. I helped put together a blogger photo shoot for vente-privee. It was such a great night full of friends, laughter, and balloons. Lots and lots of balloons. I attended the Charm and Chain 5th birthday party and met the lovely sisters behind Dannijo. I’m obsessed with their entire collection including this necklace and these earrings. I traveled to DC for a quick weekend getaway to visit the ever-so-beautiful cherry blossoms. Doesn’t it feel good to cross things off your bucket list? I attended the Cole Haan press preview and you are going to die over their new fall collection. And last but not least, this was the first full month here on lauren-nelson.com! Life is good. Did you do anything fun this month? Xo. Lauren
Hellooooo, Friday! I’m currently writing this post on a plane to Miami. Thank goodness for on flight wi-fi!! Today I’ve rounded up a few items which the majority are from West Elm. Have you seen their new collection? I’m seriously loving everything. This gold dipped tote is an absolute must for summer. These anchor towels are the perfect gift for my mom since she lives on the lake. Gold plated flat ware and copper-plated serving set? Yes, please. Last but not least, I had to include the penelope nightstand as we talked about marble earlier this week. Hope you all have a lovely weekend! I’ll be sending sunshine and 80 degree weather your way.

It’s that time of year again to celebrate the superheroes in our world…aka mom. There are so many great gifts that perfectly say “thank you.” From monogrammed anything to pretty little earrings, I’ve rounded up over 10 presents that will help spoil your mom this Mother’s Day. Last year I bought my mom the Kate Spade Idiom bangle and am pleased to see it’s return. This year’s bangle includes cute sayings such as “thank you,” “do your homework,” “sit up straight,” “say please,” and a few others that are great daily reminders of the little things. I also love this odds and ends dish for jewelry and this Tory Burch smartphone wristlet. You know your mom loves candles (you could also try nest or diptyque for classic scents). What will you be gifting your mom this Mother’s Day?
