Miraclesuit is in the forefront of the swimsuit industry and is sold at luxury department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue. They really live up to their name–everyone looks sleek and sophisticated in their suits as they hold in problem areas without causing any discomfort. You’ll find that every suit not only has a unique high fashion design that shows off the wearer’s best features but each suite has great upper support and seems to resist fading. I have personally worn my Miraclesuit more than ten times each in pools at this point and there is absolutely no sign of wear or fading (this is thanks to the Lycra Xtra Life Spandex that they use)! This is is an especially great brand for moms who love to do pool aerobics! Pictured above is a high neck suit that is truly trendsetting and works for all figure types partially by drawing the eye up to the gorgeous multicolored pattern on top. It’s called the Raya Del Sol Brio and several different prints are available in this style. You can buy it here on the Dillard’s website for $196 (Macy’s and Lord & Taylor also carry it): Miraclesuit Raya Del Sol Brio.
Miraclesuit also has a special line of coverups that work as “street clothes” called Magicsuit. In this line are chic solid black items that can be used multiple ways including the fabulously comfortable and chic Jersey Cabana Pants. My favorites are two fabulous asymmetrical dresses pictured above that will be Mom’s “go to” items all summer long. One is the Magicsuit Draped Cover Up Dress ($94) and the Magicsuit Jersey Hankerchief Convertible Shirt Dress ($86). You can order both here on the Miraclesuit site (sign up to be on the mailing list for a steep discount on your first order): Magicsuit Cover Up Dresses.

This cuticle oil provides an excellent source of deep moisture, rejuvenating, restoring, and nourishing cuticles while promoting nail growth. Then there is Polish Potion ($13), a plant-based, non-acetone, lavender fragrance polish remover. Its sugarcane-derived solvents work to break down nail color, while nourishing the nail bed. There’s also She’s All Matte ($13), a mattifying topcoat that transforms any LL shade to have a mattified effect. Their foray into nail art stickers is equally remarkable. Purchase these great mail items here as well as some adorable LL logo merch: Lights Lacquer Products.

While exploring production options for her new line of jewelry, Anna Zuckerman researched state-of-the-art, conscientiously derived, precious metals and stones, as well as the nanotechnology behind it. She personally developed what is now known as Diamond Coated Crystalline with the manufacturing experts; a new finishing technique that truly gives lab-created jewels the same intricate beauty of diamonds, while ensuring they remain both high in quality and incredibly affordable. While there are dozens of fabulous choices for Mother’s Day bling gifts on Anna’s site, a real classic that I would recommend is the stunningly regal Anastasia 38 ring (there are equally beautiful Ruby Red and Emerald Green Anastasia 38 rings). This style features a vintage-inspired one carat diamond white crystalline surrounded by ruby red, emerald green or sapphire blue baguettes and a white diamond double halo for a combined two carat total weight of stones (this ring is set in platinum plated sterling silver 925). You can buy the Sapphire Blue Anastasia 38 as well as the other color ways here for $199: Anna Zuckerman Sapphire 38 Ring.

I recently received FlowerFix’s divine Lemonade Stand Anemone Bouquet and just fell in love with it. This delightful bundle of colorful joy is a combination of yellow and light pink roses, white anemones, light green dianthus and assorted greens that comes with a packet of flower food.

FlowerFix offers weekly, biweekly and monthly flower subscriptions but you also can order individual bouquets. This woman-owned company’s orders come to your US address very securely boxed via UPS and usually in only two days! The quality and pricing is remarkable because the FlowerFix people have their own flower farms in South America; they have full control over how their beautiful buds are grown! General pricing for super large bouquets is about $69.99 with no hidden fees. (I hate nothing more than $30 dollars added to my flower orders for delivery and service charges!)

I recently fell in love with Anker’s Eufy HomeVac H30 at the Pepcom home tech press event at NYC’s Metropolitan Pavilion. It is a hand held vac like no other not only because of the supercool space age design available in both black and white but because of its TriPowerTM system that has a maximum 80AW (16Kpa) suction power. This level of suction makes it easy to pick up dust & pet hair while removing allergens, maintaining a clean, healthy environment. I also was mesmerized by how light this device is (just under two pounds), making it super easy to handle and great for both home and car cleaning usage. The Eufy HomeVac H30 runs on a 2500mAh battery which ensures up to 20 mins of runtime in low-power mode with 35AW, and up to 10 mins of runtime in maximum power mode with 80AW. This amazing handheld vacuum comes with charging base that also functions as accessory storage and and 8.5 ounce dustbin with dust scraping technology, making it easier to remove hair from the filter. You can order the Eufy HomeVac 30 for $179.99 or get more info here: Eufy HomeVAc H30.
