That Sparkle In Her Eye Makes You Smile

Are you fortunate enough to still have your Mother or that Mother type figure in your life? If so, I am guessing when you go to visit her, she has that sparkle in her eye because she is so happy to see you. 

My Mom will have been gone seven years the end of June. She was in assisted living and then the nursing home the last four months of her life. In May of that year, she had some mini strokes and didn't always recognize us when we went to see her. One day when I was helping her eat lunch, she got that sparkle in her eye like at that moment it clicked and she knew exactly who I was. Whenever, I think of that moment I smile.

My Mom had the biggest sparkle in her eye when she knew all of us five girls were coming home for a weekend with our families. My Dad passed away in 1999, so she loved having company. The more commotion, the better and there was always room for one more at the table.

I created my Swarovski Crystal Necklaces for Mothers Day presents to go with my Swarovski Crystal Earrings. The sparkle of  the Swarovski crystal necklace and crystal earrings remind me of that sparkle in her eye. If your Mother or Mother type figure is not with you, this is a great Mother's Day present for yourself to remember that special lady in your life.

Three out of my four sisters and spouses were able to visit my Mom with my husband and myself on her last Mother's Day. We created a book for her of the memories from us and our families. There was a page with a photo of each person and their memories. My Mom's eyes just sparkled when she saw the book. I only wish we would have done it sooner. Remember to take the time to do the things with your Mom now instead of waiting. We never know how long we have with our loved ones.

Be sure to check out my Swarovski Crystal Collection for your Mother's Day presents. If you are a Mom, celebrate the day by purchasing a set for yourself. We all deserve a treat once in a while.

How To Maximize Your Wardrobe and Jewelry Sets For Summer Fashion

July 17, 2019

This summer I decided to make the most of my wardrobe. I looked in my closet to see what I had for sandals and capri leggings. Since I already had a pair of white and black leggings, I decided to look for some tunic tops that would go with them and my sandals. Tunic tops are wonderful because they hide many sins.
