You may remember my Santa Barbara getaway that I took a few weeks ago with some girlfriends. The weather was around 60 degrees all weekend. These warm boots and my favorite leather moto jacket kept me nice and cozy.
You can read all about the best places to explore and eat in my Girls Weekend in Santa Barbara Guide. Looking forward to our next adventure in Palm Springs at the end of this month! Hopefully the weather will be hot so that I can pull out my summer clothes and actually get a real tan.
Don’t miss your chance to enter the Helen Ficalora Mother’s Day Giveaway going on right now! We’ll be choosing a winner on Thursday. Good luck!

With Mother’s Day less than two weeks away, it is time to figure out what to get our moms this year. Luckily, my mom is not difficult to shop. She loves the same things I do: beautiful flowers, time spent together, and elegant jewelry. Each year I get her a beautiful bouquet, a hand made card, and take her out to one of her favorite restaurants. I also like to get her a little gift to open while we are out.
I remembered my mom liking a specific necklace I often wear. It is a simple sterling silver piece by jewelry designer Helen Ficalora. So when I saw the same necklace with a “MOM” pendant, I knew it would be the perfect gift for her.
Hopefully she does not read this blog post before Mother’s Day . It would be fun to actually surprise her with the gift. If she does read this, Mom- happy early Mother’s Day! LOL.
An exciting announcement… I’ve teamed up with Helen Ficalora to giveaway one of these gorgeous necklaces to one Laura Lily reader! If you are looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift you don’t need to look any further. The giveaway ends Wednesday, May 4th. Just in time for the winner to receive the necklace to give to that special lady in their life. Enter to win below and good luck!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. My favorite kind of weekend is the one that involves being both productive and having fun. If I am only productive, then I feel I miss out on having fun. If I only have fun, I feel the need to catch up on projects. However, this all goes out the window if I am on vacation. Then I am just out to have a good time.
This Asos peplum top is a new favorite of mine. I paired it with a black pencil skirt making the entire outfit look like a dress. Too bad the top is a bit too…how shall I say this…revealing to wear to work. At least it makes for a great going out ensemble.
There will be a Mother’s Day giveaway coming up this week on the blog. In case you forgot, Mom’s day is literally 2 weeks away! As always, thanks for reading and let’s kick some serious butt this week.
