Mother's Day with Estée Lauder and a recipe for the yummiest Peanut Butter Paleo Cookies

Estée Lauder Simple Pleasures Gift Set, Eau de Parfum Spray 30ml and Body Lotion 75ml $85.00 (also contains makeup bag not shown) available on counter and www.esteelauder.com.au until stocks last.

This Sunday marks the 30th Mother's Day I have spent with my gorgeous Mumma, as I've grown older she's only grown wiser and every year I appreciate her so much more than the last. 
Mother's Day is a day to spoil all the lovely generous Mums of the world and I'm going to have so much fun spoiling mine. Most Mothers tend to deprive themselves of lifes little luxuries so as to give their children everything they can. A nice fragrance is an indulgence that most Mother's tend to skip buying for themselves, which is why it makes a thoughtful and sweet pressie.
Estée Lauder has released a selection of favourite fragrances and makeup sets for Mother's Day, which are all extremely beautiful and any Mum would be over the moon to receive along with a cup of tea in bed. For me Estée Lauder's fragrance Pleasures is quite a memorable scent, my favourite grade one teacher Mrs Henderson wore it and I remember smelling it when she would put stickers on my spelling tests, I saved money from my first job to buy it for my Grandmother for her birthday and on sunday I will be giving it to my Mum as a thank you for being my greatest inspiration, best friend and putting up with me for the past 30 years.
Estée Lauder Pleasures is a fresh sheer fragrance, floral notes include Jasmine, lilies, Peonies and exotic Baie Rose. I cannot wait to smell it on Mum when she gives me the best hugs in the world.

If you like to spoil your Mum with some sweet baked treats then here is one of my favourite recipes, these cookies are best enjoyed with a cup of milky tea and lovely long chat. 

(very technicial measurments and instructions coming up....NOT!)
3/4 cup Almond meal 
1 egg
2 tablespoons of crunchy peanut-butter
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of linseeds
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Half a handful of sultanas or raisins 

1. Mix all ingredients with fork till it forms a very sticky mixture.
2. Using the best tools god gave you, your hands! Roll into ping-pong ball sized pieces.
3. Line a tray with baking paper and arrange your cookie balls in a formation so they don't touch each other.
4. Bake for 12-15mins or till they smell ready!
Happy guilt free baking babes!

Here are a couple of my favourite photos of my beautiful Mother and I, hope you all have a lovely day with your Mother's and if you are not together then celebrate them with their favourite things.
