Early May Favorites - Such the Spot

I have this problem. Whenever there is a ‘holiday’ I feel increased freedom to consume all the calories and drink all the drinks. And so with Cinco de Mayo being followed directly by Mother’s Day, my weekly weigh-in is bound to disappoint. Oops. I’ve decided already that I’ll comfort myself by shopping online. You’re welcome, husband. Shopping alone is no fun so I’m sharing some of my recent favorites with you lovelies. Some of these items are priced especially low this weekend, so snap ’em up whilst they last.

You can always tell when Mother’s Day is approaching because retailers make it impossible to enter the store without running face first into a display of flowers and tank tops that say things like mama needs coffee.

Sellers of all different wares would have you believe that your mom needs another clever statement mug or initial necklace or spa day. I suppose she probably could use a spa day but that’s beside the point.
