A Greenleaf Signature diffuser in Peony Bloom is sitting on my desk right now. Peony Bloom bursts to life with a flourishing of bergamot, grass leaves and rhubarb. A floral fancy of red rose, tulip and hyacinth meet a woody oak foundation. The intoxicating yet not overwhelming fragrance gets a powerful boost from fiber reed technology which provides double the fragrance release through biodegradable reeds. The scent lasts up to 3 months. The collection also consists of candles and sachets. Go check out our Instagram @fountainof30 to enter our giveaway.
If you have not yet tried Sara Happ The Lip Scrub you are in for a treat. Especially now that a new flavor just came out!

This iconic lip scrub eliminates dry, flaky skin, immediately leaving your lips soft and supple.
5. Take My Face Off The Mitty Blackout, $42.50
This is one of those ingenious items she will wonder how she lived without. You will wonder, too. You’ll no longer need cotton balls to remove eye makeup. The Mitty® Blackout is a game-changing, patent-pending, washable eye makeup remover. Two separate cleansing tools are integrated into each pad. The Blackout’s™ ultra-gentle, plush textile is softer and more effective than cotton balls or coarse washcloths. Each set contains five fuzzy droplets of cleansing power. They are super soft and super gentle. They also are reusable (less waste), non-tugging and they don’t absorb liquids like cotton balls so you use less remover and save money!
6. RescueHer Kit, $49.95
You need to get one of these for every woman you know and one yourself! I’m sure you have seen those tiny emergency kits they sell at Sephora but this one is so much better.

With products like BB cream, lip gloss, a contour pallet, makeup wipes, Advil, tweezers, earring backs and crazy glue for that broken heel or nail, she’ll be covered thanks to your Mother’s Day gift.

7. Frida Kahlo Art Figure, $35
This is the perfect gift for the woman who literally has everything! I guarantee she doesn’t have this!

If Frida isn’t her jam you can also get Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt, Vincent Van Gogh (with removable ears). I can’t make this up.
