Just in time for Mother’s Day, Dove has transformed its iconic Beauty Bar for the first time in nearly 60 years to celebrate the women in our lives. For a limited time, the words love, real, kind or care will be engraved into the Dove Beauty Bar so that you can honor a woman who has made an impact on your life. Additionally, Dove is launching limited edition packaging on select body wash, hair products and deodorant featuring inspirational quotes from real women.
“My mother always told me I was smart, funny and beautiful…in that order. And I say the same thing to my daughter every day.” – Tara R., Chicago, IL
“If your definition of ‘beauty’ doesn’t include you, rewrite it.” – Caitlin K., West Roxbury, MA

More and more, my friends are starting families and ‘moms’ are looking trendier than ever. You tend to forget that your mom was once a stylish hot mama before they were just your mom! Beyonce is the best trendy mom out there that always look put together while taking great care of Blue Ivy.
We found some fun items for mom that are not traditional and under $50 on BERRICLE. Their jewelry niche is in premium cubic zirconia and silver for attainable luxury.
Who believes Mom’s should be celebrated everyday of the year?? I do! We recently celebrated Mother’s Day at the third annual ROI Mother’s Day event. It was an indoor picnic with a Parisian theme; there were pretty flowers everywhere, delicious desserts , pink bubbly, a manicure station, a plate and flower crown making station, and so much more! This Mother’s Day event was especially special as ROI founders Delphine Nicholls and Sam Diamond were both first time Mommies (they gave birth two days apart!) This was also the first time that ROI committed to featuring local, female entrepreneur vendors and sponsors, such as Crowns by Caleigh and Recreative Works by Renee Elliott.
They also worked with the charity Dress For Success Toronto, by accepting donations of gently used, professional clothing and unused hygienic/makeup products; in order to make it easier for disadvantaged women to join the workforce and showcase their self-confidence and economic independence.
