Mother’s Day : No More Flowers!

mothersdaygiftEvery year, I look for inspiration for Mothers day gifts, and its often harder than I realise to get nice gifts for Mumsy that she will love and actually use. So for those of you, like me, who always leave things to the last minute for gift giving, here is some inspiration for gifting your Mumma with your best gift yet. Forget your traditional hamper or your tired photo frames, lets kick it up a gear and give Mum a gift she will adore!

Home Cooked Meal

Make a roast, some pie or even a green smoothie. Make mumsy the best meal you’ve ever made, and put some real research and effort into it. Even if it tastes bad, you can be rest assured that she will appreciate the effort and love gone into making it.

Ugg Boots
Seriously, the best gift ever, and the one that keeps on giving! Just in time for an Aussie winter here in Australia, Ugg Boots couldn’t come at a better time. And for those stylish mums out there, you can even buy Ugg Boots from Ugg Australia with Swarovski Crystals on them. So cute!

A Puppy

Well, if she wants one and there’s plenty of love to be given to the pup, then by all means, get a puppy!! I recommend a smaller one, as the bigger ones cost more money, eat more food and cause more damage to things, but they give bigger hugs and still consider themselves lap dogs, so what ever suits your style, I guess! Picture her face when an adorable pup pops its little head over the top of a little basket, with a red ribbon wrapped around it… Just make sure you have all its papers or get a rescue pup from the pound. dog_puppies_cute_animals_brown_wallpaper_hd_quality_6556

Some Family Time

Have you thought about planning a day for your mum? We might not realise the amount of organisation it takes to run a general day in life and make every day run smoothly. So maybe take her out to breakfast, or go on a hike together. Make a picnic and sit and watch the sunset whilst drinking some bubbly. What ever you thin she might enjoy, without so much focus on a present, go and get her some of that!

Cooking Class

One of the best ways to show someone you care is actually let them teach you something. Sounds bizarre, but when you give some of your time and knowledge to someone you love, they remember and cherish the feeling, and appreciate the time you spend with them. So why don’t you and Mumsy learn something new together and then make it for the rest of your family at another time?

A Helicopter Adventure

When was the last time you and mumsy went on a helicopter ride together? I don’t remember either… But you can change that easily with this beauty of a gift. Something so different that she could never guess! They can range from $55.00 each for 15 minutes or $800.00 for an hour with the family. Suits anyones budget and is an absolute blast!

  • @BioOilAustralia has been there for me from the start - when I was a teenager and I acquired my first lot of stretch marks. And here we are again in full swing with these twinnies to help improve the appearance of those extra marks and make me feel like ‘me’ again. I just apply twice a day, morning and night, and it only takes two minutes, so I get more time with my little mate Carter. Those chubby cheeks get me every time! #BioOilTwiceDaily #Collab #BioOilPartnership
  • My beautiful girl, Kennie Rae 💕

  • It’s fair to say it’s been a mighty big weekend here in the #CoulthardAndCo household... @biozetattack gave me such an incredible (and terrifying!) opportunity to come along on their #BiozetAttackBrigade campaign at @toughmudderaustralia .. oh my goodness!! SO many thoughts about this and surprisingly I didn’t suck (or die!) at it! As you can see, I’m fairly excited about my new laundry additions and I had a blast shooting this campaign in own laundry, which is where I spend most of my life these days.. haha!! Oh the irony. Anyway, I was impressed with the results from my laundry loads (not so much my Tough Mudder injuries - swipe right!) but my crew on the day made it SO much fun! So many more pictures to come this week... there was no escaping that mud! 
PS. Anyone know a great massage place on the coast?? I’m in desperate need over here.. So sore. 😂😜 PPS. Congratulations @fabiancoulthard !! SO proud of you. Winner winner 🍾🏆👌🏼 #FabPack
  • It doesn’t matter if you’re on team blue, or team pink (well, maroon..), you’ll certainly want to be a part of Origin this year!

Ahh take a breath! Take a look at my stories for extra details or head on over to @PersonalisedPlatesQLD for how to enter and more info. #CoulthardAndCo
  • My FIRST Mother’s Day 💝
How special is today? So magical 💫 
The meaning of this day has changed for me so much this year. Being a mother is so special and such a privilege. ‘WHAT DOES MOTHERHOOD MEAN TO YOU?’ It’s a question I asked in my stories yesterday and I had literally hundreds of replies from so many of you. Thank you for sharing with me your beautiful answers. How lucky am I to share this time with my family, as well as with all of you? If you didn’t already answer, what does it mean to you? I’ve written a BLOG post about it too, and included a little story and some beautiful images of my tribe too. So chuffed to have a day like today to celebrate with you this incredible life purpose and journey. Let’s hear it for our mums! 💝 #CoulthardAndCo
  • So from what feels like a lifetime ago, I used to model. Day in, day out, I would work out, go for a run, eat when ever I wanted (and what ever.. ahh metabolism!), have my make up and hair done, outfits given to me and I would pose from dawn until dusk and have beautiful and effortless photos flooding my inbox on the daily. So yes, a lifetime ago, this would have been a quick two-second snap at the end of my day.. not any more folks! This was done at about 10 at night, I had something on that day and left over make up. All the daily chores were done, kids in bed, dog fed and I thought, ‘I should probably get a photo for once.’ So, here you go, instagram. Here’s my ‘end of day’ EFFORTLESS photo for you. Haha, I am funny... I don’t think I did too bad, do you? 😂 *also, if you watch my stories you’d have noticed I had my brows microbladed last week. Thank you @mimsybeauty I’m in LOVE!! Get to see her girls, you won’t be disappointed 😘🖤 #BeckyLamb #CoulthardAndCo
  • Kennie knows how to make me smile! Now that I’m a Mum, I find my time being consumed more and more by this little cheeky grin and dressing her in the cutest outfits I can find.. but I still need ‘me time’ and I am always after those products that will get this bod looking and feeling its best. @BioOilAustralia gives me the control back and helps improve the appearance of my stretch marks in just two minutes a day. It lets me feel like me again with smooth and soft skin.  #BioOilTwiceDaily #Collab #BioOilPartnership
  • THIS IS NOT A DRILL. It’s actually just a little reindeer named Carter... I’ve given him a cuteness rating of 9.7/10 😂 This little guy is my happy baby, always giggling, looking around and keeping me on my toes. He’s a typical boy - easily distracted, needs constant stimulation and knows how to make his Mama’s heart melt..! Like this.. haha! He was born a little 4’10 and he was such a little fighter from the moment he arrived. Always being smaller than his sister, I think he has a point to prove. We love you little guy, - the biggest, sweetest, curious little character I’ve had the pleasure of meeting 💙 @cartercoulthard #coulthardandco
  • Mackenzie Rae Coulthard. Kennie. Kennie Ken Ken. Little Kennie Wennie. Grumpy Ken. (The last one is my favourite!). I wonder if she knows how loved she really is. Do any of us? Probably not. This little princess was sleeping through well before her brother, and she has only ever woken us up once (Her brother would wake us and we would just feed her at the same time). If you’ve ever wondered what the textbook baby looked like, here she is. Always patient, so observant and only cries when there is a genuine problem. I think she has experienced life before now, she’s been here before. If this was your first and only baby, you’d definitely be going back for more 😂 
I also love dressing her in girly outfits.. this bow is so cute too. Courtesy of @blondesinbows 💕
I’ve been thinking of writing letters to my children.. have you done this? What are your tips to doing so? Are there any sets I can buy to make it easier? 
Also thinking of posting photos of these two on their own accounts.. what do you think? #CoulthardAndCo
