*Listings are not sponsored, and have been chosen simply because we enjoy them!  

Maze Home Trays 

Enjoy Mother’s Day coffee in bed on a chic new tray!  Maze has large selection of trays for home that can serve so many purposes.  Loving the Faux Croc style with Bamboo Handles, and Wicker with Acrylic.


Dana Rebecca Designs

I love the delicate stacking rings from Dana Rebecca.   The Ava Bea is a current fave.  “What’s better than a row of diamonds? Two rows of diamonds!  Our Ava Bea Double Row Ring takes the guesswork out of stacking as it gives the illusion of two diamond bands stacked together.”

Shark Vertex Pro Lightweight Cordless Stick Vacuum

With more trips to the beach this summer comes more sand in the house!  I see vacuuming daily in my near future and need a hard hitter like this Shark Cordless.  Our Dyson broke after a year and I’m ready to move onto something new- this gets great reviews!  Not exactly an exciting gift, but anything that makes life with kids easier is sexy these days!

Winnetka Music Fest

Spring and Summer to mean mean MUSIC!  I love spending warmer Chicagoland days at outdoor venues listening to a good band- or even better, many good artists, and EVEN BETTER, right here in the North Shore!  General Admission tickets still available.
“Through the contribution of the Village and their leadership as well as our Winnetka Park District we are able to offer a unique blend of great new music in a community that is a phenomenal backdrop and with residents that are proud to own the event setting and have been gracious hosts to artists and fans alike.”
We love golfing as a family, together for a date day/night or with friends!  I could use new gear all around & these clubs get great reviews and are built to last.  “The new REVA 8-Piece Complete Set from Callaway is designed with premium performance in mind. This complete offering is engineered for women of all skill levels who want to increase their distance, hit great shots, and enjoy the game more than ever before.”

Indoor Plants & Orchids

I’m a huge fan of indoor plants and orchids in my home- the more the better!  They make a space feel warm, bright & alive.  A few favorite local options to pick up something unique are, for Orchids, Ceciel’s Flowers & for large plants, Chalet Nursery.  You likely won’t walk out of either without a few other fun finds.

DP Designs

Variety IS the Spice of Life. Let your personality show through your jewelry. Mix up your arm stack and look at its beauty.
All pieces shown sold separately. DM to inquire and purchase.

Blue Mercury, Highland Park, IL 

We love this beauty and skin care haven!  CEO and founder Marla is a mother of 3 and curates the selection to perfection.

Pick up a gift set for Mom like The Best of Clean Beauty, or bring the spa to her with a few of our favorite at home treatments from Trish McEvoy (love the Retinol Eye Cream), a new sent, a curated gift set like The Expert Edit Set (pictured above), or a gift card to shop the large selection.  Call to order ahead for pick up- but an in person trip is much more fun!

Glitters and Gold

Sally is the Northbrook mama behind Glitters and Gold. Here you’ll find timeless and beautiful jewelry pieces at affordable prices. How cute is this chain earing? Makes me want to go out and get my second hole re-pierced!
DM for pricing and sizes or to schedule a time to come over and shop.

Stitch Fix, Personal Styling

Stitch Fix is the personal style service for men and women that evolves with your tastes, needs and lifestyle. I started using Stitch Fix a few years ago and I haven’t looked back. They seem to get jeans spot on even when I can’t seem to get that task done myself. Enjoy $25 off your first FIX.

Courant Charging Station

I purchased the “Best of Bundle” for my parents for Christmas.  I love the look and they’ve reported that they love the functionality!   The sleek design of this charger tray works as a catch all, while charging your phone or ear buds.  Genius!

Bonus, the company is having a huge Mother’s Day sale!

A Flower Subscription

While I’m actually not the biggest fan of receiving flowers on an occasion from my husband (get more creative dude!), I love the idea of a monthly or bi-weekly subscription!  It’s so nice to have fresh, seasonal flowers in the house consistently!  These are a few of our go-to businesses that offer subscriptions:
Flowers by Katie Ford
Madison Du Prince 
The Flower House and Farm 


I have been asking for a Nespresso maker for well over a year now, for every holiday… HINT HINT!  Seriously though, these little powerhouse caffeine machines are amazing- especially come warmer weather when an iced late sounds much more appealing than hot, which you can make in minutes!  Bonus, the pods are recyclable.  There are so many models available to fit individual taste, but this is my current favorite.

Kule Tote 

I love a good canvas tote, but even more so when it can go from the farmers market, to kids sports, and strait to brunch after- and still look chic.  This one from Kule fits the bill and the straps are long enough to throw over your shoulder.  

KitchenAid Shaved Ice Attachment 

I’ll be honest, I rarely use my KitchenAid mixer, but this Shaved Ice Attachment stopped me in my tracks.  What a fun gadget for summer!  I’m dreaming hot summer evenings on the patio enjoying a froze’ while my kids make fruity concoctions of their own!  Win, win!
