Summer is right around the corner. Time to grab shorts, tanks, sunscreen, and more. While I love a great Summer hat, I think my favorite warm weather accessories have to be sunglasses! You can change an entire outfit with a different set of shades.

Decorating your home is no easy feat, but it's very important that you love and feel comfortable in your space. I moved back in October and am still getting my place together while trying to stay within budget. I have found loads of budget friendly resources, however, my favorite might be Target.

The bug release in nearly upon us, and it seems 1920s fever is starting to pervade even more stores. While I have mentioned ModCloth's whimsical pics in the past, they seem to be embracing the Jazz Age look with vigor.

The blazer makes a glamorous, contrasted statement. This hairpiece would look lovely with a nightime ensemble or to dress up a more casual look. The pastel collar necklace is great because it is on trend yet pay homage to the Gatsby-look. This embelished dress would look great at any garden party.

The Perfect Gift for the Perfect Mom.png

Mother's Day is just around the corner, and sometimes finding the perfect gift that shows just how much you care can be challenging. Luckily, P.C. Richard & Son has you covered with great deals on a variety of gift ideas for Mom! Let's talk about a few...

Coffee.jpg

Keurig personal coffee brewers are a favorite among moms. The variety of coffee and tea flavors can't be beat, and every cup comes out fresh and delicious! If your mom doesn't have a Keurig brewer already, now is the time to get one. Get a free $35 P.C. Richard & Son gift card after mail-in rebate with the purchase of any Keurig brewer, PLUS a $5 gift card with the purchase of any 2 boxes of K-Cups.


Camera.png

For the mom who loves taking photos, this Nikon gift pack with a plum-colored point-and-shoot digital camera, memory card and carrying case at $129.97 can't be beat. The camera also has built-in Wi-Fi so mom doesn't have to plug the camera in to share her photos on Facebook. If she's looking for an upgrade, save $220 on a special Nikon DSLR 2-lens kit to take more professional photos.

Gift Cards.png
If your mom is looking for a tablet or e-reader, there are a variety available with free gift cards after mail-in rebate. You can snag any Samsung Galaxy Tablet and get a free $25 P.C. Richard & Son gift card, or a Barnes & Noble Nook and get a $50 gift card. Whether you keep the gift cards for yourself or give them as a bonus for mom is completely up to you... we won't tell!

Dyson.jpg
Mom will always appreciate a Dyson vacuum. This is one of the best times of year to get one, since they're 20% off and shipped free.
 
We hope that these gift ideas gave you some inspiration on what to get your mom this year. Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there... we appreciate everything that you do!

Are you excited for The Great Gatsby remake?

Although I love the book and the original movie, I will concede that I am over the moon excited for this. Lucky for me, lots of stores are embracing the look and feel of the film in some capsule collections. Of these collections my favorite might be from Warby Parker.

04_30-_warbyparker_blog.jpg

Their 1922 evokes the look and feel of the film/era in hip eyewear! I have raved about Warby Parker before, but let me remind you: their glasses run right around $100 and for every pair purchased, one is given to someone who needs a pair (like TOMS shoes). Plus you will earn 6.0% Cash Back :)

This year, Mother's Day falls on Sunday, May, 12th. Over the years we've heard too many people stressing about what to get mom, so right up front we want to remind you of two things: Being a Mother is hard. Shopping for Mother's Day is easy. If you know how.

The secret lies in simply relaxing, thinking about mom's personal style, and letting someone with a bit of experience (say a 100 years or so) help you along the way.As you may suppose, here at FTD, we've been taking Mother's Day pretty seriously since way back in 1910. In fact, Mother's Day is one of the things we do best, which isn't too surprising when you consider that flowers have always been the most preferred Mother's Day gift. Nothing makes a mom feel so special, so spoiled, and so well taken care of than a beautiful bouquet.  Plus, flowers go great with just about anything else you want to get her, from a side order of gourmet candy to a lavish gift basket to sparkling gemstone jewelry.

But there are so many choices out there...which flowers are the right flowers? Based on our century of talking to customers about their moms, these are who we had in mind as we were designing our offerings for 2013.

First, there's the "Chic Mom". You know her... she's got a style that's refined and sophisticated. She's fashionable, she radiates cool, confident glamour. Think about a bouquet of dramatic Musings™ Luxury Calla Lily' Bouquet by Vera Wang or consider a chic arrangement from the new Impressionism Collection inspired by the French Impressionist masterpieces of Claude Monet, Edouard Manet or Pierre Auguste Renoir.

Then there's the "On-the-Go Mom". She's all about casual comfort and pert practicality, but she's never too busy to stop and "smell the roses," or any other beautiful blooms that happen to come her way.  For her, we'd recommend our Rush of Color Tulip Bouquet and sweeten the gift with a beautiful presentation of gourmet treats packed in a colorful tower of miniature decorated hat boxes all tied up with a pretty blue bow. 

FMTP_master.jpg  G278_master.jpg

Now, for the "Classic mom". You know her...the perfect pal, partner, and fun playmate who's able to be everything to everyone and pull it off with sensational taste. She's bound to love the Fabled Beauty Bouquet which is a mix of elegant roses and graceful calla lilies.  And, you know she'll flip over the personalized Mommy & Me frame that you can have customized just for her and is destined to find a  permanent home on her desk or dresser. 

FMCR_master.jpg  K652_master.jpg
   
Then there's the "Down To Earth Mom"... that do-it-yourself darling who's like a force of nature when it comes to hard-work, sharing good, practical wisdom and nurturing anyone and everyone within arm's reach.  Can't you see her tending a flourishing Dishgarden by Better Homes and Gardens®? And won't she love saving and displaying her favorite photo memories in the Mother's Day Blooming Keepsake photo box?

And for this Mother's Day, FTD is partnering with Meredith Corporation, publishers of many of America's favorite magazines to support the work of CARE in serving families in some of the poorest communities in the world. 

Order any of the arrangements selected especially for this Mother's Day by the editors of Better Homes and Gardens®, Ladies Home Journal, Family Circle and Parents, and a portion of the proceeds will go to fund a Meredith Corporation $10,000 donation to CARE.* Now we all know, that Mom will already be proud of you for spoiling her with such great gifts, and knowing that your purchase is also doing so much good−that will send her over the moon!

 BG109_master.jpg  BG115_master.jpgBG114_master.jpg  BG111_master.jpgBG110_master.jpg  PG123_master.jpg

What's more, if you order on May 1st, you'll get FREE SHIPPING on select Better Homes and Gardens bouquets for Mother's Day at FTD.com. Let's see...that will make you THOUGHTFUL, SHARING and SMART ABOUT MONEY. At last, the perfect kid!  She knew you had it in you, so give her the pleasure of turning herself inside out with pride when you present her with one of these bouquets. 

One final bit of advice from the FTD flower experts. When you're ordering Mother's Day flowers, request that they be delivered on the Friday before Mother's Day, May 10th. That way your mom will have all weekend to revel in your thoughtfulness, plus some bouquets are typically shipped in the "bud" stage will have just the right amount of time to open up to greet mom first thing on Mother's Day morning. 

* Proceeds from the sale of these select arrangements help fund a $10,000 donation from Meredith Corporation to CARE. CARE focuses on working with mothers and families to create lasting solutions to poverty.

While this may not be an excellent suggestion for every mother out there, the Stella McCartney for Adidas collection might just be the perfect present for the fitness obsessed mom (like mine)!

While I do not have the fashion prowess to pull off pastels every day, the pretty hues are such a lovely way to embrace the warmer months. Tons of Ebates stores have embraced the pastel trend, so options abound. Here are few pieces that could be finding a home in my closet very soon.
