Hello again! What’s that, Sarah posting twice in one evening?! Yep I’m being industrious! (I also enjoy having the time to write when I get the chance, which I guess makes sense as I wouldn’t be blogging otherwise right? )
In Australia we celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday in May, which is the 13th May this year! Different families celebrate in different ways, however if your Mum is into beauty I noted that Terry White Chemists* (www.terrywhitechemists.com.au) have some very nice gift packs, including Shiseido skin care packs which contain a nice tote bag as well as swag of products:
I usually will get my Mum some nice flowers for Mother’s Day. Did you know that in Australia chrysanthemums are the flower typically given on this day? My Japanese teacher said she had trouble understanding this as in Japanese culture they are seen at funerals, usually white ones. Apparently it is the same in parts of Europe too.
I am also planning to bake my Mum and Grandma some strawberry cupcakes! Using good ol’ Betty Crocker:
On the day, the family including my Mum will visit my grandparents for an afternoon tea. Later that day, Mum and I also plan to test out a giveaway prize I recently won – thank you so much Hannah from Beauty Down Under! – which is a DIY pecan face scrub. Recipe, review and photos to come.
For those of you celebrating Mother’s Day this coming weekend, I wish you a great time! It can be a sad day for those without their Mum or Grandma, so I acknowledge that too. I’m lucky that I still have my Mum and one of my Grandmas.
Love you Mum and Gran! xxx

Do you celebrate Mother’s Day? If so, when? Are there any special flowers or traditions on the day for your family?
