Does your Mom love mermaids? What could be a better Mother's Day gift than a breathtakingly beautiful Mermaid Pillow?
I have been obsessed with mermaids even since I was a little girl. They are beautiful and magical. I still love them! I was excited to discover the Mermaid Pillow Co.
When I discovered this company online, I was very excited. I am trying to incorporate a beach-theme (which definitely includes mermaids) to my living room decor. The pillows were not only stunning, but also looked like a lot of fun! With a swipe of your finger, you can 'draw' shapes, patterns and words in the pretty (mermaid scale) sequins in back of the pillows.
Imagine the possibilities with the best-selling IMAGINE Mermaid Pillow w/ Reversible Sequins Back. This style is designed for the dreamers, the creators, and the all-around joy seekers. With the front featuring a huggably-soft mermaid design and the back comprised of aqua and purple sequins (which can be moved to produce endless designs), this pillow is a beautiful canvas for creativity! Guaranteed to be Mom's favorite gift!
Watch this adorable video clip of my baby grand daughter, Reylin, discovering the mesmerizing effects of the Mermaid Pillow:
I could sit for hours holding my soft and cuddly Imagine Mermaid pillow. It feels nice to hold while watching a movie, and it is entertaining to draw on while chatting away at someone one the phone. (I have always enjoyed 'doodling' and now I don't need a pen or paper!)
I 'drew' this heart on the back of my pillow!
I really think that the Mermaid Pillow Co. will have the perfect gift for that special woman with Mother's Day!
They have a great assortment of gorgeous pillows, so you are sure to find just the right one for your Mom this year.

Mother's Day is almost here! One of the most perfect gift ideas for Mom this year is the PLUGGY Essential Oil USB Diffuser, created by one of my favorite essential oils companies, GuruNanda.
GuruNanda, the maker of a line of premium, 100% pure essential oils, is now introducing a novel diffuser — the Pluggy — is the USB powered plug-in essential oil diffuser on the market - and, it has nebulizing technology! It simply plugs right into the wall, disseminating refreshing, natural and therapeutic mist into the air directly from the bottle, with no need for water.
Pluggy USB Wall Plug-In Diffuser retails for only $16.99. It’s a great trade-up from commercial air fresheners that typically contain loads of chemicals and just mask odors without providing any health or wellness perks. You can use it with any 15 ml. bottle of GuruNanda Essential Oil (think peppermint, lavender, tea tree…) depending on the aromatherapy benefits desired.
I definitely believe that this amazing diffuser is the best I have ever owned! It has kept my home smelling beautiful for over a month now. I love how it emits uplifting and delightful bursts of scent every ten or twenty minutes depending on what setting I have chosen. I have been using my lavender oil, but I cannot wait to give other fragrances a try. My next choice will definitely be mandarin or tangerine!

This year for Mother's Day, give Mom a gift that keeps on giving. One unique gift idea that I think is perfect is a DIY Gardening Kit! Back to the Roots has a wonderful collection of Indoor Gardening Kits that make it easy for Mom to grow her own vegetables and herbs right in her kitchen!
These DIY Gardening kits are 100% Guaranteed to Grow — no backyard, green thumb, or extra tools required. Just add water & watch them grow!
My own mother loves tomatoes, but is not much of a gardener. (Neither am I.) There is nothing quite like the fresh taste of freshly grown tomatoes. In fact, when I smell the vines, I am transported back to warm, sunny summer days as a child, running trough the sprinklers next to my dad's vegetable garden. I decided to order my mom the Back to the Roots Tomato Self-Watering Planter so she can grow her own cherry tomatoes!
My dad still plants his wonderful garden each May, but it isn't as easy for my mother to go out to the garden to pick tomatoes for her salads or just to snack on. With the amazing Back to the Roots Gardening kit, she will have her fresh tomatoes at her fingertips all throughout the year. Grow cherry tomatoes indoors by watering just once a week!
The Back to the Roots Tomato Self-Watering Planter is the easiest way to grow your organic tomatoes indoors and at home. The planter uses ancient watering technology in the form of an olla pot that you can fill just once a week and watch it grow!
Plus, the biochar technology in the soil lets you grow right out of the planter, on your windowsill or tabletop, with no draining needed. No chemicals, no transplanting, and no messy drainage holes.
I have been wanting one myself, so I just might be ordering two! (Or three?) You can never have too many cherry tomatoes!

Rahua Classic Shampoo, Conditioner and Shower Gel are the perfect gift for mom from Mother Earth! I received samples of these products to review.
Rahua Classic Shampoo~ This luxurious shampoo leaves locks luminous and soft by imparting omega-9 packed rahua oil and other all-natural, plant-derived nutrients. I love the rich lather, and the uplifting fragrance. After washing and rinsing, my hair is left perfectly clean and has incredible volume.
Rahua Classic Conditioner~ This rich and ultra-hydrating conditioner delivers lustrous, healthy locks and detangles with powerful omega-9 rich rahua oil and exotic extracts that maintain strong hair and manageability. My color-treated hair tends to be extremely dry. After just one use of this amazing conditioner, it felt as if my hair had been transformed. It was shiny, smooth, silky and perfectly hydrated.
Rahua Body Shower Gel~ This energizing plant-powered shower gel gently cleanses and nourishes skin. It awakens the senses with the invigorating scent of palo santo “holy wood”, lavender, eucalyptus and vanilla. I love this richly lathering formula. It is perfect for shaving my legs in the shower, and makes my skin so very soft!
