Mamma Mia is one of those movies that has you fantasizing about Greece for years after watching it. In order to make your next Greece vacation a no brainer, I put together a list of all of the amazing Mamma Mia film locations that you can visit while you’re there.
Every city has it’s own vibe, and man does Venice Beach have a unique one. Venice Beach, CA is the type of place where you’ll see artists and business people alike ride bikes along the boardwalk (a gorgeous curving sidewalk along the beach). It is one of the best places in LA to people watch, surf, shop and eat some incredible food. The activities here are endless if you love a good laid back beach.
If you want to experience a fashion show happening 24/7 right before your eyes, you need to spend some time in Milan. Even more so than Paris or New York, Milan seems be the most stylish city in the world. I mean, it’s a runway on their streets all year round. So imagine how fantastically stylish it would be during Milan fashion week.
I went with my boyfriend James and his family on a yacht in La Paz, Mexico through the Sea of Cortez. Honestly I had no idea what to expect. I also had no idea how luxurious it was going to be.. the yacht had a private chef who prepared fresh breakfast, lunch and dinner each day. Like fresh coffee, omelette, fruit, you name it. There were several crewman running the operation, preparing the jet skis, dinner set-ups and taking you around on the little boat to different islands for activities. I could give you a great list of things to do like kayaking, swimming, jet skiing, fishing and all those great activities, but the best things here are more of an experience.
Slacks and button down shirts may seem boring, but there are ways to easily style up your work outfit. Many of us feel like we can’t dress stylish because we need to dress professional- and if we want to grab lunch with a friend on a week day or meet friends for happy hour, we won’t feel good with the outfit.
Mom’s are just like us, they love shopping, feeling loved and looking beautiful! Mother’s Day is a day for appreciation, and showing that appreciation through gifts 🙂 Here you will find the greatest Mother’s Day gift ideas, and rest assured know they will all make her feel special.
I believe the best gifts come in pairs, (it’s always awkward to wrap one item) so I have created a list of my ten favorite gift combos for Mother’s Day.
Scarf & Candle
There is something about this gift combo that truly warms the heart and represents love! Even though Mother’s Day is right before Summer, that doesn’t mean a scarf and candle won’t be fantastic. Think summery scarf and a beautiful fruit scented candle.
Dress & Earrings
You can’t go wrong with a gorgeous dress. Since Mother’s Day is approaching Summer, a gorgeous Summertime look will be perfect for mom’s all over the world. Pair a flattering dress with some adorable hoop earrings to match and you’ve got a winner. Out of all my Mother’s Day gift ideas, this one takes the cake for my mom!
Accent Pillows & Throw Blanket
Home decor gifts are great for Mother’s Day, especially accent pieces. A stylish pillow and throw set is the perfect way to add your touch of love into your momma’s home. Most mom’s don’t need more excess items and junk, so if you go this route, I suggest really quality pieces. This gift pair is taking the more pricey route, but well worth it! I love the pastel pink sets 🙂
Chic Blouse & Necklace
This is a classic gift combo for a reason. Everyone needs more beautiful tops (especially mommies) and necklaces are the easiest go-to jewelry. This pair looks gorgeous together! The top has several summer elements and the necklace truly adds the cherry on top of the look. Plus, it can be worn with anything!
Eye Creme & Lipstick
Mom’s love anti-wrinkle eye cream, even us 20-somethings use it as a preventative! As long as it’s Chanel, I can guarantee this to be a fantastic gift and something your mom will use daily. I know I would. This pairs perfectly with the lipstick. The lipstick adds the beauty and glamour after the cream, we need balance!
I feel confident your mom will be in love with any of these choices! For my mom, I think she would like the dress and earrings best 🙂

Happy Mother’s Day!!
