A Girl’s Gotta Spa! Mother’s Day Wish List on RetailMeNot


Trae Bodge, senior writer at RetailMeNot.com’s The Insider, recently asked me for my 3 Mother’s Day wish list items. Two had to be things within my grasp and one could be a dream item.

I believe a girl can never have enough jewelry, so of course one of my items were Blue Topaz earrings from Ice.com. I’ve always loved blue (just look around at my logo and colors here to get the hint) and there is a timeless quality about Blue Topaz. It also reminds me of my home state of Rhode Island, otherwise known as the ocean state. (Ocean being blue…there’s a theme here.)

For people that know me in my real everyday life, they know that my footwear of choice are my FitFlops. I really find them the most comfortable of all summer footwear. From the moment it begins to warm up, until late October, I usually don’t wear anything else. I’ve had the same pair for 2 years now and if you know this brand of flip flop, they have those toning kind of sole (thick and make you rock forward.) Mine are flat as a pancake. That’s how much wear they’ve gotten. I did try to buy another pair last year, but then I accidently walked through freshly laid tar and ruined them. Now my eyes are on their new wedge FitFlops called Lolla.

Lastly, I’ve always dreamed of going to Canyon Ranch for a luxury spa retreat. And rather than go alone, my wish is to go for a weekend with my boyfriend to the Canyon Ranch in Lenox, Massachusetts.

If you are a mom, what are some of your wishes for a Mother’s Day gift?
