This Mother's Day is especially important because it's the first time I'll be celebrating the holiday as a mom! So when Avon asked me to talk about moments that make me shine in honor of their new fragrance, Avon Femme, I started to reflect on the past 10 months and how much joy my baby boy has brought into our lives. He's the most amazing little human being I've ever had the honor of knowing and loving, so really it's the quiet moments that make me shine the most: Witnessing that first smile, hearing his sweet laugh, sharing in his curiosity for life, seeing him bring smiles to the faces of everyone he encounters, and so much more that words can't describe.
The pride that comes from being a mom also makes me shine...for being stronger than I ever imagined I could be, and for being able to provide for my beautiful son. A Mother's Day gift should reflect these things, and that's why classics like perfume always make a splendid gift - Avon Femme is a glamorous and sophisticated signature scent that will bring a touch of modern glamour into any woman's beauty routine. I'm loving the chic faceted crystal bottle and the subtly sweet, floral scent! Avon Femme Eau de Parfum Spray makes a perfect gift, and right now you can get $5 off with code FEMME5.
