Had a very nice Mother's Day weekend. We went to a close friend's daughter's 5th birthday party Sunday morning (my twin girls are 2 1/2 so we are just starting with those, and not tired of them yet!), and it was actually lots of fun. Went out to dinner Saturday night due to aforementionned party, but with 2 small kids, it isn't terribly relaxing. My husband did make fancy delicious french toast for breakfast (my favorite) and watched the girls in the afternoon so I could get a pedicure. No perfume, since the husband gets migraines and my perfume wearing is confined to work hours. And I bought myself some absolutely gorgeous peonies from Trader Joe's for just $6.99! Making me happy for 4 days already! My mom is far away, so sent her a card and a few small things. She has so much stuff, I told her I'm not getting her any more gifts of things - just restaurant gift cards, flowers, or things like that.

I wore some of my beloved Ne M'Oubliez Pas which has quickly shot up to the top of my favorites list. Then we had a big cookout to celebrate our son's 2nd birthday, mother's day, and a housewarming so by the end of the night I smelled of NMOP and the smoke of the firepit, which was actually a fairly nice combination. I hope everyone had a lovely mother's day!

We had a great Mother's Day and Birthday Celebration for my youngest child, who is autistic and turned 15 on Mother's Day!. We went to the movies with the family (some of us anyway!; as the kids have gotten older, it is harder and harder to get us all together at once!). Most of my kids stopped in at some point during the day, and I had just spent the day prior with my daughter who graduated college, so it was a big celebration weekend all around! I wore Byredo Inflorescence which I thought captured the gentleness and sweetness of the day! I did not get to talk to either my amazing mother or my mother in law, but left messages and will call them today. I sent both of their packages last week--no perfume for Mother this time--I thought about VC &A California Reverie, but was so indecisive I ended up just getting her a gift card and a "Her children arise and call her blessed" platter and some tea towels. Mother in law is allergic to perfume, but she did text me and tell me how much she loved her fancy Christian Louboutin lipstick! in her package!

Happy Mothers' day to you too! It's been so wet here ... out cleaning things up over the weekend and I ran across my little patch of lily of the valley.... I have a small vase of them sitting next to my bed. What a lovely smell....

Happy Mother's Day Ann, We spent Mother's day with my BFFs mum. We went down to the Football Club and had lunch. It was totally fun and I think she had a good time. We certainly did. Peanut Butter Cups, some Erlicher jonquil bulbs and Harney & Co Mother's Day Tea were her gifts from us. Mum Waples usually gets a bottle of vintage Opium but she already has 100ml bottle waiting in her closet. Portia xxx

It was a quiet day at our house as we always do our big family gathering for Mother's Day on the Saturday before. I went overboard with scents today: eau de Cologne to wake up this morning, Vanille Galante after eating a blueberry muffin for lunch, La Chasse aux Papillons for evening as the sun was setting, and Chanel No. 5 post-shower/pre-bedtime. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and feels ready for good days in the week ahead. Waft on!

I've been wanting to try the Neela Vermeire scents! I need to get that sampler at STC, and add on the Pichola, too. My 4-yr-old son has been asking me to wear perfume when I put some on, so recently I haven't been wearing anything very challenging if he's going to wear it too -- his skin is super sensitive, so I can't put pre-IFRA stuff on him. Today, I dabbed Atelier's Orange Sanguine on both of us, and he really enjoyed it!

An easy going day today... Mother's Day always leaves me in a bit of a funk because of the relationship between me and my (now late) mother; it doesn't help that I have a final due today. So we celebrated by bringing pizza to my MIL, dropping off the toddler, and watching the new Captain America and to sweeten the day, I put on Derek Lam's 2am kiss. Yummy, caramelly/woody goodness. As a throwback to the above comment, is it possible to find Penhaligon's Ostara anymore for not an arm and a leg? I'd had my eye on Bluebell and then found a description for Ostara and now I'm on a mission!

I'm doing a "use up the perfume samples" challenge and have waded through a week or horrid, wretched samples. Ugh. Today I put on Cafe Intense, ahhhh. Simple, sweet, lovely. Happy woman today!

Hi Ann, no celebration here because my daughter is in the US and I am... well, here in Europe. So I got a whatsapp message from her today assuring me that I'm the best mother in the whole world and that made my day of course :-) It's a lovely sunny May day and I was wearing Penhaligon's Ostara. Pure joy. I'm glad you had a nice day, got some great presents and made another mum happy.
