Hey babes! Mother's Day is this Sunday, May 10 (don't forget to pamper your mama!). I'm so excited because this year is a little different: It will be my first year celebrating it as a mom myself!

As I currently type this, I have my son climbing up my leg and reflect on these past 8 months, I can say is that I've only just got a glimpse of what being a mother is really all about. So before I get into this post just wanted to take the time out to say a huge thank you to my mom and good Lord, I am so, so sorry for all those sleepless nights. Payback is cruel!

My mom is my best friend, guys. She's always encouraged me to follow my dreams, no matter how crazy they are. She's my support team, my shoulder to cry on, my shopping partner and my confidant. It kills me to think that when I was younger, my mom and I weren't so close (I was more into bartending/staying out late) and I'm working hard to catch up on all those missed times.

One of my favorite memories when I was little was going through her jewelry boxes. I'm sure she really loved me dumping out all of stuff onto her bed but she let me anyway. Lariat necklaces are her favorite and I used to go through them and untangle them (one of my fave pastimes - I know, I'm weird). I'd try on her rings and bracelets and ooh and aah over the velvet boxes that they came in.

Recently, the amazing people at contacted me with the opportunity to pick out a gorgeous ring for myself, my mom and my readers (stay tuned to the end!) in celebration of Mother's Day and it instantly brought me back to those jewelry dress up days when I was younger with my mom. When you were younger, did you try on your mom's jewelry too? has an amazing selection for Mother's Day from rings to necklaces to make-your-own options. They're also currently running a "Your Mom is A Gem Giveaway" on their site for a $500 shopping spree on here so make sure to enter that as well as my giveaway below!

I had my mom choose which ring we'd all get and I love that she surprised me with her reason behind her choice. She chose the Oval Manchurian Peridot ring because it's my birthstone! How amazing is my mom?

There's no better way to celebrate Mother's Day than with a giveaway! YAAAAY!

 We want to give you an oval Manchurian Peridot ring too!
