On May 4, Robert Verdi in conjunction with us here at the Accessories Council Tweeted Live at his Luxe Laboratory with 30-40 in-demand fashion, beauty and lifestyle bloggers to let the world in on what was hot for Mother’s Day. Robert was of course life and soul of the party and entertained us all with his funny stories whilst informing all the bloggers with his how-tos on Mother’s Day Gifting and his must-haves for every type of Mom.
Just some of the bloggers included our very own Accessories Council member Anne Agoren of izzi bag and as we all know that she was nominated for a ‘Shorty Award’ and reached the final 6 out of 250,000 nominees. Other bloggers included Lucky, Seventeen and Cosmo magazines alongside Second City Style, Diva Moms,Fashion Pulse Daily and Aly Walansky.
Some of the products that were reviewed included the Brelli, a beautiful Umbrella which is made of 100% bio degradable parts, so not only is it uber-stylish but it is great for the earth too. Made from Bamboo, cotton and clear plastic so you can feel good about the long term effects on the environment by carrying this stylish Umbrella.
Robert had his good friend Rebecca Cole there with her book, Paradise Found, and she entertained us all with her witty stories of travelling with Robert. You had to be there to understand the humour, but she made us all laugh at how Robert refuses to stand in line at airports. Rebecca told everyone how mother’s do not always want a bunch of flowers which will die in a week. It is more practical to buy mom a plant for the garden, which will grow year after year and more importantly plant it for her.
One of the gifts Robert talked about was the Clipa, this is for mom’s on the go, an instant handbag hanger. Honestly believe me the Clipa will extend the life of your handbag as it prevents it from sitting on the floor. With over a dozen finishes to choose from and you can hang it on your handbag when not in use which also means you are not routing around looking for it when needed. They are really sturdy and designed to hold the heaviest of handbags.
Marimekko, the internationally renowned Finish Design house brings it’s famous floral motif to Avon’s limited edition Crusade Tote. This gift has a double duty not only can you carry your belongings but also give to a worthy charity as 100% of the net profits from the sale of each bag is donated to Avon’s breast cancer crusade.
Everyone had a wonderful evening and it was great to hear that everyone agreed it was going to be a difficult decision in what to buy our mom’s for Mother’s day. I think my mom got almost one of everything!
