{GBF Fab Five} Mommie Dearest

With my brother working in New York and Dad in Shanghai for a relative's wedding, it will be just Mommy and me on Mother's Day this Sunday. Plans have been set in motion as I look forward to sharing a slew of fabulous moments with Mom. She's simply the best!

Here are five fabulous ways to shower love upon the woman who made you, who believes in you, and perhaps the one person who will put up with your shit over and over again.


The Lorac Blushing Beauty Collector's Set is my favorite makeup kit as the warm neutral colors compliment every skin tone and contains all that you need to bring out Mom's natural beauty.

Have Mom pick out a Mother's Day present at the Rebecca Minkoff  LA sample sale which runs through Sunday. Ready to wear, handbags, shoes, and jewelry are all up to 75% off.  For my Mom, I'm eyeing the Bailey hobo, the MAB tote, the Jules satchel, and the edgy sliced diamond statement necklace

At this Saturday's Gilt City LA Perrier-Jouët Garden Champagne Brunch, $130 buys admission for you and your Mom to a Champagne brunch at an exclusive LA estate, music by the Musicians Institute College of Contemporary Music and a fabulous swag bag from L'Occitane.  

After my first sip at the La Prairie spa, I've been hooked on Art of Tea's selection of certified organic artisan green tea. My favorites are the White Tip Jasmine and the Sencha. Buy Mom a tin or a subscription.  Either way, with every sip she'll be thinking of her wonderful offspring.

Once contained to Asian communities as Asian Moms hate the sun, Balenciaga's Spring 2012 collection and Donald Sterling's girlfriend Vanessa Stiviano have put the Darth Vader visor on the map. It's a product that has been one of my summer staples for years. Keep your Mom sun protected and trendy with the ultimate face shield sun visor. You can get one on Ebay for $15 or buy them for less than $8 at any Chinese or Korean gift shops.
