Hello and happy May! 

May is just around the corner and that means flowers are blooming, warmer weather and its time to celebrate the number one lady in your life... Your mom. Here are some ideas to treat your special lady to a wonderful mother's day we know she will love and feel appreciated.

Have a spa day

What woman doesn't want to be pampered? After all those years of diaper rashes, paying for school books and watching you grow, your mom deserves some time to relax! Krystal Rose Studios definitely has some great services offered for that special day. 

Cook for her

After a million breakfasts, lunches and dinners and free food, why not return the favor? In my opinion, a Sunday brunch is the best time. You will definitely want to check out some great brunch ideas from Bon Appetit

The gift of rest

Your mom has definitely been active. She has always been on the move to soccer games, ballet recitals, and any activity you as a teen could imagine. Why not let her for once be stress-free, turn on that snooze and enjoy her bed? 

Try a wine tasting

Whether it's with the whole family or a mother-daughter bonding Sunday, it is time to relax, try some different shades of reds and whites and reconnect (and what better way to reconnect with a merlot in your hand to sip on).

Family scavenger hunt

Get the whole family involved in a morning scavenger hunt before brunch or wine tasting. Not only do you show mom some fun times, but it is also great to become close to each other (and maybe a little fun competition).

Prom 2018: Tips For Hair, Makeup, & The Dress

Whether you are excited to go to prom or an anxious parent making sure your daughter gets the best experience possible, here are some tips that will help you rest at ease. I remember getting ready for my prom. The hair, the make-up, the dress (yes, it is all about the dress), it can be stressful. Here are some tips for it all!

  1. Dresses

The dress can be the key to a great prom night or a horrible one. According to jovani.com (link: https://bit.ly/2IQgrdZ), here are the five best dress styles going on this season 2018.

Metallic shades:

This look is definitely a head turner this season. Being so popular on the red carpet today, it this style comes in shades of gold, silver, and bronze as well as more commonly used colors such as blue, green and red. Pair this with a smokey eye or add some glamorous red lipstick.

The open back:

Want to give your daughter a chance to feel a little sassy, yet tasteful? The open back is a big trend this year for the runway. It also comes in many different styles and cuts. There is something for everyone. This is definitely a look great for a vintage  makeup look. Make sure you wear your hair up in a classy bun and do not forget to take that famous turn around pose.

Soft pastel:

This is by far my favorite, pastel shades for prom. Pastel colors are always elegant, attractive and tasteful. Pair this with some bronze and nude makeup and loose hairstyles and you have the perfect look for the perfect prom.

Cutouts and strappy details:

Whether it is spaghetti crisscrosses or other unique cuts out designs, it is definitely a must choice for prom. Its classy and attractive. This 90s classic is coming back for 2018. A sleek straighten hairstyle is your best bet and it lets the dress do the talking. Keep the makeup, clean and soft.

Velvet:

Color is the key to finding the perfect velvet dress. Whether you are looking for a dress that is a simple color (blue, pink, red) or something a bit more complex such as a mermaid cut. You can also do something more simple in cut such as ballroom gown style. Match this dress with a bold lip, matching heels and clutch. if you have a low neckline, add a poppin' gold or silver necklace.
