Mother’s Day fantasy

From the fabulous late Jackie Collins’ scorching bestsellers to E. L. James’ erotic sensation, 50 Shades of Grey, it is clear that fantasy fuels desire.  It’s not that soccer Moms and career women want to run away to join harems – though many might want to become Jackie’s famous heroine, Lucky Angelo, if they could manage it – but the fantasy can be a turn-on.

So, this Mother’s Day why not give yourself, or let it be known you want your own idea of a sexy little fantasy.  Dressing up can really put you in the mood.

Has a great selection of sexy costumes and accessories.3wishes

You can order everything you desire, from a lace mask, to a sexy harem dancer outfit. There are costumes that will let you play out scenes from any movie or drama you can imagine. Measure carefully and order from the high-end for well-made, wearable outifts.


Mother’s Day


Click the topmost title to open

I not saying that there aren’t any good movies any more but I miss a nice light chick-flick. They may not be everyone’s bag of popcorn but I love Julia Robert in Pretty Woman and Notting Hill. And Kate Hudson in Almost Famous and Le Divorce. Director Gary Marshall made Pretty Woman which is just another reason I am looking forward to his new feel-good movie Mother’s Day.

The movie is about three women; Julia Roberts as a television, Jennifer Anniston as a divorcee looking for love, and Kate Hudson who want a better relationship with her mother.

The three stories are intertwined.

If you are still looking for a Mother’s Day gift at my beautiful flowers from Proflowers might give you an idea.

Proflowers partnered with Mother’s Day and they offer gift ideas. This is the bouquet (This vase but one this one came with the flowers) you can send your mother beautiful roses and lilies and a vase – just like these for just under $30. I love flowers and these are very fresh. Shipping fees and tax are extra.

This is the time of year to give or buy luxurious holiday fragrance gift sets to wear into the New Year. Here are a few of our favourites:


JOY by Jean Patou

JOY is a classic fragrance worn by some of chicest and most feminine women in the world.  For decades it was known as “the costliest perfume in the world”. The  fragrance was created in 1930 by designer Jean Patou. This lush scent contains 10,600 jasmine flowers and 28 dozen May roses.


This holiday season there are several stunning ways to give the gift of “Joy”.


There are 500 hand-numbered, limited-edition parfum bottles available at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus. $350


Or give a four-piece gift set of lovely of JOY eau de parfum (3.4 ounce) with three, elegant, individually-wrapped bath soaps, packaged in a keepsake box exclusively sold at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus. $190


Another four-piece gift set features a bottle of JOY eau de parfum (1 ounce) with three, elegant, individually wrapped bath soaps, packaged in a keepsake box. This is priced at $110.00 and exclusively sold at Bloomingdale’s, Dillard’s, Lord  & Taylor, and Nordstrom.


Fragrance and matching soap are really delicious ! I adore the luxury!


Chanel No5Chanelno5

My own favourite gift set  of Chanel No 5 combines the classic bottle with an elegant and  refillable purse spray.  The sexy No 5 is playfully sexy fragrance. Marilyn Monroe wore this blend of citrus, rose, and jasmine over amber. The set includes EAU PREMIÈRE Spray (3.4 ounce) and EAU PREMIÈRE Twist and Spray (0.7 ounces).  This makes a great gift as the refillable spray is TSA friendly. $169.


And what lover of Chanel No 5 would not adore her own limited-edition flagon of the most precious form of scent, Grand Extrait Crystal?  It is the ultimate indulgence. $15,000.


Diordownload (4)

The Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet Travel set  is a feminine delight in its reusable white flower-bedecked box. I have kept these types of box for decades. I love this new feminine Miss Dior fragrance with notes of mandarin, Peony, and White Musk.  This scent is light, fresh, and contemporary, exactly what “Miss Dior” should be.


This set includes Eau de Toilette natural spray (100 ml), Eau de Toilette refillable travel spray (7.5 ml), and cute little Eau de Toilette miniature (5 ml).

Holiday dressing-up isn’t as easy as it used to be now that no one really “dresses up” any more. The last thing you want to do is look like you tried too hard – or not at all. It can be tricky to dress for an office party, or an evening when you have two events to attend.


Adriana Orsini Leaf Drop Earrings are a lot of sparkle for under $50


The secret to looking fetchingly festive in this situation is to add a dash of sparkle or drama to your most luxe tailored basics.


Adding a sexy pair of sandals, or a chunky heeled boot, with sheer black hose takes matching neutrals up a notch.BBrianAtwoodTira

Use your touch of shimmer to play up your best features. Earrings draw attention to pretty eyes, while a belt will show off a tiny waist.
