YUM!), the critically-acclaimed and Oscar-winning The Descendants (um, hello! George!!), or something a little darker like the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (never saw it but heard good things). There are more to choose from but it's definitely a win-win gift!

4. Lash out! 
Book yourself into Lash Affair and join the Lash Addicted like me! I love lash extensions because when I wake up I look even more FIERCE than I usually do! No fuss, no muss, no mascara application, just get up and go! This is a beauty indulgence for you, your BFF or the "tough to shop for" mom in your life!

Individual lash extensions come in a wide variety of lengths and thicknesses. Any look can be created from girl-next door, to ultra-glam-diva lashes (and everything in between). Lash Affair's experienced technicians apply extensions one by one by isolating each of your natural lashes, and applying an extension with medical-grade adhesive formulated specifically for use around the eye area. 
The application is painless, and most women fall asleep! Individual lash extensions promote a healthy shed cycle for your natural lashes and cause no damage to natural lashes. 
Results last around 6 weeks, but can last indefinitely if proper fills appointments are maintained.
Do it. Book the appointment. You won't be disappointed!

5. Take a day trip to the local gardening centres!
It's that time of year when we start planning our gardens so why not indulge in a short day trip to check out all of the local gems! Some of our local faves include Ellerslie Gifts & Garden which has a fantastic little bistro to indulge in a light lunch or snack. It just opened for the season and is open Daily 9am - 8pm except for Statutory Holidays (10am - 6pm). Easy to get to from the Anthony Henday too! 10330 Ellerslie Rd SW.

Another south west gem is the Dunvegan Gardens. Don't judge them by their website. This little treasure has some wonderful plants, fantastic service and is only 10 minutes from the Lessard exit on the Henday. Head a little further west to Carvel General Store just 10 minutes west of Stony Plain and you will be surprised at the cool trinkets, decor and "OMG I gotta HAVE that" finds you will see!

The daytrip possibilities are endless but it's another great way to spend some alone time or indulge in a mother/daughter day.
