Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is this Sunday and as always I wanted to share few of my picks for those of you who still need to pick up something special. With this being my second year as a Mommy, Mother’s day has become one of my favorite celebrations. I  love receiving something special from my hubby and son. It does’t matter how big or small it is,  it’s always the perfect gift. From a beauty day at Encore Medspa, to a few great pieces from my favorite bay area bouquet, or maybe a  jewelry piece that will last a life time. Whatever your budget or style is, you will be sure to find something that everyone mom will love. Make sure you scroll down to find a few discounts added to few of my picks:). Enjoy, Bethaina xox

Met Gala 2014

Here are my favorite looks from last night’s Met Gala. There were definitely a lot of black, white, and neutrals with splash of color.  My favorite looks were the elegant and simple styles, which were emphasized with a touch of bold or sexy, opposed to the overly dramatic looks we saw.
