5 Reasons Why Moms Should Celebrate All Month Long


By: Heather McMechan Special to the Boca and Delray newspapers

Why does May 14th have to be the only day we celebrate moms? I think it would be a great idea to celebrate all month long.

If you want to have the best Mother’s Day month, you really need to just plan it yourself.

Here are a few Mother’s Day ideas that you may have been thinking about, but aren’t making the time for.

  1. Microblading not rollerblading

Wouldn’t it be great to have your eyebrows done when you roll out of bed each morning? Bond Street Salon in Delray Beach now offers Microblading which is one of the hottest beauty trends right now. Don’t forget to make a hair appointment for yourself as well.  With every cut and color service, you can come in for a complimentary conditioning treatment. Call Jeanne 561-330-8760 to schedule an appointment.

  1. A weekend away

I always like getting out of town for a short weekend. You can road trip to Naples with a group of girlfriends and stay at the Naples Grande Resort.  It’s only 2 hours away, so you can make it in time for their new & improved Happy Hour! Enjoy $5 flutes of Veuve Clicquot at 5 p.m., $6 at 6 p.m., $7 at 7 p.m. and $8 at 8 p.m. on Sunset Veranda, plus freshly cooked BBQ fare (a la carte pricing) and live music! Call 844-993-9576.

  1. Shop for a cause

Treat yourself to a new outfit from Apricot Lane. It’s time to shop for a new top, dress or pair of jeans for your summer wardrobe. It’s also Lupus Awareness month. A portion of the sales from selected products at Apricot Lane will go towards finding a cure. Apricot Lane is located at The Delray Marketplace, The Promenade at Coconut Creek and Wellington Mall (coming soon).

  1. Get your belly flat

With bathing suit season around the corner, you know chasing kids will be your calling. Feel good while doing it when you sign up for that Pilates class you’ve been wanting to take. The Pilates Preserve will get you into shape and help control that little muffin top.  You’ll also strengthen your core and correct that posture from driving your kids around. Call Pilates Preserve at 561-391-1151 for class specials.

  1. Get a selfie smile

I’m sure every every time you take that selfie with your kids, you wish you would make that appointment. Your teeth start to shift over time even if you had braces as a kid. For Mother’s Day, you should give the gift of Invisalign to yourself.  None of the other moms will know that you’re straightening your teeth. Moroco Orthodontics will take care of you and your teeth this month. Call 561-638-9963 to make an appointment for a consultation.
