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).

We all love fashion and 2018’s New York Fashion is sadly over. No fears though! We here at Be Pure Beauty Bar love all the beautiful makeup, hairstyles and of course fashion! We would like to share with you our favorite looks from this year.

Prabal Gurung

Prabal Gurung’s line this week during New York Fashion was simple beautiful and colorful. Prabal has been a strong influence on empowering and embracing feminism as he quoted on social media: “This is the #pgworld, where we celebrate female solidarity, we share colours of Prabal’s home in the east and we present a vision of our collective future, a future that is #StrongInColour.”

Leanne Marshall

I don’t know about you but I am a sucker for evening gowns and dresses. This year on Valentine’s Day, Leanne Marshall at Gallery II at Spring Studios shared some perfect gowns for 2018. Not only were they gorgeous gowns, but Leanne supports women of all sizes! The gowns are gorgeous and elegant; the women are beautiful and strong. What more could we ask for?

Esteben Cortazer

Columbian designer, Esteben Cortazer has taken a huge storm bringing diversity to the runaway. He brings a modern twist with greys, greens and earthy colors to the everyday working woman. He has taken a lot of inspiration from other cities his work has grown which gives it a beautiful, sophisticated and worldly feel.

Michael Kor

Now I love my Michael Kors and this year he really mixed everything... literally everything! Anything from plaid, floral prints, and stripes. According to Vogue.com, "Kors’s show felt effortlessly inclusive in multiple ways. There were unknowns and there were runway vets, twiggy girls, and curvy ones, male and female models from all over the globe. Kors sees beauty everywhere—a fitting message for Valentine’s Day." -Nichole Phelps

Tom Ford

Animal prints, leggings, you are looking back at a revamped 80's style. Last but not least, Tom Ford's combat with his unique style during New York Fashion Week.  According to Nichole Phelps, Vogue Author, "Tom Ford in a nutshell: confident in the extreme and irreverent to the edge of defiance. For every viewer that questions this show’s good taste, there’s another that’ll call it glamour and be seduced." His work definitely deserves a second look.
