2015 MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE

The Femmes at La Femme Mecca have curated their favourite Mother’s Day Gifts – read with caution – you may want to buy for yourself!

It’s that time of year again when we get to celebrate the most important women in our lives. The ones who love us no matter what and who have done a tireless, thankless job all these years.  Our Mums…. Bless. So we think this year, in addition to writing a hand written note (mums always love this!) you could also opt for one of our favourite picks from our Mother’s Day Gift Guide. Some of these are luxe options…so recruit a sibling or call dad to pitch in! Remember – she’s worth it.

BENEFIT Roller Lash

We were obsessed with their cult mascara ‘They’re Real’ and now we are even more obsessed with ‘Roller Lash’. Why will mum love this newbie?

‘It’s a roller for lashes! The eye-opening Hook ‘n’ Roll™ brush grabs, separates, lifts and curls…while the instant curve-setting formula holds for 12 hours’

We also love the Benefit team and what they represent with their new philanthropic program…The Founders are the original mum and daughter duo…read here.
