Ah, mom. Is there anyone else in your life who deserves a full day of wonderful things? With Mother’s Day on the horizon (May 12, mark it in your calendars!) now is the time to plan how you’ll spend that special Sunday. This year, go beyond the traditional Mother’s Day brunch or mani/pedi appointment. We’ve come up with eight unique ways to spend the day—or the entire weekend—together with your mom.
If your mother is a gardener, spend Mother’s Day weekend outside and, as an added bonus, have her teach you some of her green thumb-making skills. Of course, you’ll need flowers and plants to practice on, which is why we suggest taking a trip together to the Toronto Flower Market. Another way to get your hands dirty (in the best way possible) is to take your mother to at a clay class at the Gardiner Museum. (Moms who came of age in the ’70s will especially appreciate the return to the pottery wheel!) Read more »
As a respected couture designer and a master of the art of branding, Karl Lagerfeld has an interesting place in the fashion industry. Not only is he still reigning as the creative director for Chanel and Fendi, he also has his own highly successful KARL label. Now after much anticipation, Karl Lagerfeld has launched his first watch collection. The collection, available exclusively at Hudson’s Bay in Canada, features bold designs that are synonymous with Lagerfeld’s individual style. The seven distinct watches include highlights such as luxe metallic leathers, studs and bold chains.
To celebrate the new collection, Hudson’s Bay is giving away a Karl Lagerfeld watch to two lucky FASHIONMagazine.com readers. Gah! The Karl 7 (valued at $335) is named after Lagerfeld’s lucky number, and is surrounded by a beveled top ring that is unique to most traditional watches. The Karl Zip (valued at $535) is Lagerfeld’s favourite in the collection. This unique design can be taken apart and worn as multiple pieces.
To enter for your chance to win one of these two watches, simply visit our contests page and fill in your information. The contest closes at 11:59PM EST on April 29, 2013. Good luck (on winning, and choosing a favourite style).
Tis the season to give and to get, and because we are selfless (and attempting to ensure that we’re on Santa’s Nice List), we’ve brought back our annual 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways contest to celebrate the holiday season. The premise of the countdown is simple. For twelve weekdays we’ll be giving away prizes starting with 12, then 11, then 10 and so on.
Kicking off on December 6, we’ll be giving away 12 copies of the first season of everybody’s favourite show Girls, and counting down towards the ultimate prize pack on December 21 with one very full swag bag from Holt Renfrew including a 3.1 Phillip Lim purse, goodies from Jo Malone, Nars and more.
Check back every day at 12:01 a.m. to enter the daily contest and cross your fashionable fingers! Have a fierce holiday season and good luck from us at FASHION.
