Celebrating MOMents of Beauty

Complimentary Service: Complimentary services were provided in exchange for this review. All opinions are my own.

My mom and I have what I consider to be a unique relationship. As you may know, I’m an only child, and I would say that my mom played the role of sibling in addition to mom. We fought, we disagreed, we had fun times, and we had… well, my teenage years. Despite our years of “difficult teenage behavior” I consider my mom to be my best friend.

I don’t know how many times my school friends told me how weird it was that I talked to my mom the way I did. What others considered talking back to their parents was just normal for me. I was always taught to be an independent and free-thinking individual, and I guess that carried over to how I interacted with her too.

With Mother’s Day coming soon, I’ve been thinking about interesting ideas to treat my mom. Now that I’m older, I enjoy going out and doing new things with her. The first year Dave and I were together, we took both of our moms to the zoo and to brunch. It was a little strange, grown children at the zoo with their moms, but it ended up being a lot of fun. This year we have a few things in mind, but when SEVEN the salon shared their new Mother’s Day package with me and offered to let us try it out, I couldn’t say no. A little pampering never hurt anyone, and I knew my mom needed a break after another busy tax season. (She is a bookkeeper and prepares taxes full-time in the “tax season.”)

SEVEN the Salon likes to celebrate the beauty of all women – not just moms! Whether it’s a friend, sister, or another great woman in your life, you can treat her to a little pampering. We got treated with blow outs and sent home with gift bags including chocolates and a facial certificate from Skoah!

We really enjoyed our customized blow outs with my stylist, Maritza. She encouraged us to try new styles so we did! I asked for a spring style, so she gave me big, voluminous curls which I absolutely loved. For my mom, she gave her a blow out and then straightened my mom’s normally very curly hair. We both were thrilled with the results! If you’re interested in treating yourself and your mom (or another wonderful woman in your life!) SEVEN the salon’s Mother’s Day package is now available for purchase. It includes a SEVEN gift card, gift certificate for a limited-edition Mother’s Day facial from skoah, and a sweet treat from Seattle Chocolates.

How do you celebrate Mother’s Day or the special women in your life?

    First of all, your hair looks gorgeous Jenn! And secondly, don’t you just love working with companies that give back? In this day and age there are so many easy ways businesses can give back. There’s really no excuse not to have some kind of charitable cause going on. Love this.

    What a great way to spend time with your mom for an early Mother’s Day! My mom doesn’t live nearby so I don’t get to spend much time with her in person anymore but I’d love a day where we could go out together and just enjoy a day of pampering like that. You both look fantastic!

    It’s awesome that you’re close with your mom! I wasn’t an only child, but my sibling is 9 years older so there was a lot of time when I was the only kid in the house. My mom and I fought like crazy when I was a teenager, but we get along now. :) She probably deserves some pampering in exchange for the stress I gave her 15 years ago though, lol!

      Thanks Rebecca! Haha, I feel the same way – I feel awful for all the stress I caused her too. Darn hormonal teenage years!

      Ah, love it. So many only children, it’s fun to hear about the unique relationships we have with our parents. Thanks Annaliese!

    Your hair looks amazing!

    Also, I find it insanely adorable that you both took your moms to the zoo. That is such a great idea for a “meet my parents” date.

    I love that the salon will donate a product for every hashtag. That could be so many products going to women in need!

    I’m an only child too and my mom was a single mother so we have a very similar relationship as you and your mom. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I think this was super sweet that you took her to a pampering day! Especially after a grueling tax season.

    You both look stunning! Love what she did with your hair! And I know how your mom feels getting her hair straightened when you have really curly hair. It took me years to figure out how to straighten my hair like at the salon. I still love when they blow out my hair for me.. so relaxing!

    I have a similar relationship with my mom. She’s not much on salons, so I’ll probably take her out to eat on Mother’s Day.
