It's not too late to enter the Bath & Body Works 1001 Reasons to Tell Us About Mom sweepstakes. Now through Sunday, anyone who shares a story or a video about her mom and her favorite fragrance will be entered to win a $1,001 shopping spree at Bath & Body Works. Not sure what her favorite scent is? Start her out with the Body Lotion Sampler.
Is your mom the type to set you up? You're sure to have a laugh over Have I Got a Guy for You: What Really Happens When Mom Fixes You Up a story about horrendous fix ups by well-meaning moms to a teacher who never wants to leave his sofa and an actor who performs a monologue in Starbucks. Editor Alix Strauss will be autographing copies at the NYC Kiehl's Third Avenue location on Thursday from 5-7. Any mom and daughter pair who comes in get a free lip gloss with purchase. If your mom is the type Alix writes about in her book, we suggest you keep the gloss. You've earned it, baby!
Stop by the newly relaunched Spa Chakra Fifth Avenue in New York to meet June Jacobs, creator of June Jacobs Spa Collection, and her daughter Rochelle Jacobs Silpe on Saturday, May 9th from 12-4pm.
