My top 5 Mothers Day gift picks from Yellow Octopus!

This post was brought to you by Yellow Octopus & Shopping Links.

It’s approaching that time of year again when a lot of people have to put their thinking cap on and figure out what to get their Mum for Mothers Day. It’s so hard to buy for my Mum as she already has many things and is trying to downsize, so this list is more based on my loves, if I was a Mum to something other than a cat!

The items I chose all come from Yellow Octopus, who have a HUUUUGE range of gifts. Plus is you live in Melbourne, you can get it delivered same day*). Delivery within Australia is pretty great at a flat rate of $7.99 or free if you spend over $100 (which would be easy to do).yellowoctopus

Cat Scarf – $34.99 || I don’t believe in getting house work related gifts for mothers day (unless it is specifically asked for), even if it is super cute. Wearable things however often are a go to for me. This scarf is adorable, practical and purrrrfect for anyone who love cats.

Unicorn Slippers – $36.99 || Do I even have to explain these?

Karlsson Clock – $104.99 || Copper is in at the moment and this clock would add some pizzazz to any house!

Dachshund Book Ends (In black or white) – $39.99 || I have a lot of books, boks are awesome, and as I’ve just moved into my new place and am trying to style up my bookshelves, I’ve come to realise how good book ends can look. Plus they’re practical. I was going to add THESE ONES to the list, because who doesn’t want magical unicorn book ends, but they’re out of stock.

Pop Vinyl Figurines – $$ Varies || A gift that is affordable and can be tailored to suit your Mums fave TV show, Movie, comic, etc. My picks are Loki, Dancing baby Groot, Olaf, The Tenth Doctor

What would you choose for your Mum?

*Melbourne same day delivery is at an added cost & only if you order before 2pm on a business day)

 

Fashion, Outfits

Outfit – Look at the stars with BeMe!

This jumper may just be my new favourite jumpers. It’s the perfect weight for Melbourne layering. It’s not super thick, but it’s actually quite warm. When BeMe reached out to me to see if I’d like to try some of their clothing, I looked at their site and was quite impressed with some of their new offerings. This jumper jumped out at me though.

I decided to pair it with their Jeggings (What can I say, i’m usually jeggings> jeans anyday). Make sure you look at their sizing charts, I got these in an 18 and I think I may have even been able to get away with a 16 for a more skinny jegging feel. They are stretchy, but they didn’t stretch out after a long wear. They are super comfortable though, sometimes I forget how comfortable jeggings are.

I had to get the scarf too, which is currently on sale! I just loved how vibrant it is and it kind of makes me want my pink hair back. The scarf comes in 2 other colours and I’m thinking I may need another one in my collection, it’s sooo soft. It’s also quite large so you can wear it a few different ways.

I’m now eyeing THIS jumper because that colour is amazing, and THIS jacket, because I kind of want to cover it in all the patches and pins i’ve been accumulating!

Would you wear a star jumper?

First up, if you are in the Melbourne area, I’m holding a garage sale this weekend! I have SO MUCH clothing, shoes, bags, jewellery, wigs, etc etc to get rid of. Prices starting from $1! I’m hoping to put some preview pics up on my blogs facebook page later.

Secondly, it’s that time of year again! The shopbop friends and family sale! It’s the perfect time to get in early for Birthday presents, or if you’re super prepared, Christmas. Even though it’s Autumn, I’ve been lusting after sunnies. I’ll forever be lusting after Miu Miu sunglasses. One day. I’m not sure why I have such a love of sunglasses, and my everyday glasses. I think it’s how easy it is a pair of glasses can change an outfit.

Thirdly. Wait, is thirdly even a word? It sounds wrong. Eh. It seems my laptop has gone to laptop heaven. I’m trying a few things to resurrect it, but for the moment, I really only have my phone to do stuff with. I don’t know how bloggers manage to blog just via phone. It’s times like these I wish my iPad hadn’t died too. In all fairness, my laptop (aptly named Stark) is around 4 years old and has done me an amazing service, which is probably pretty good for a laptop.

What’s new with you?
