Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and it is one of the few times I have very little trouble coming up with gift ideas. (It may have to do with the fact that my mom, like me, always has a list of things she’d like.)

1. Pretty stationery she might not buy for herself
2. A beautiful coffee table book to satisfy her wanderlust

Feminine and very ladylike, these egg salad toasts would be perfect for Mother’s Day or a spring Brunch. We had ours this year at Easter. I had originally made half the amount shown here, but quickly doubled it on the spot, because we ate all of them and everyone (except for Ellie) wanted more. Although…
I love a good Sephora haul as much (probably more) than the next person. But, there is nothing more gratifying than finding those wonderful drugstore beauty products that don’t break the bank. Today, I’m sharing one new favorite and another I’ve been swearing by for years. Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser: My grandmother used to use…
I'm Lane. I’m the wife to an engineer, the mama to Ellie and a small business owner. I love trashy T.V., good books, a little pampering and great meals.
