I'm sure many ladies can relate with me when I say that my mother was my very first beauty icon.
I played with her makeup, watched intently as she applied her own, and I wanted to be just like her. She demonstrated class, wit, and most of all love that always sparkled through.

Yes, I'm sure everyone thinks their mom is gorgeous, but mine really was and still is. On the exterior, without a doubt and on the interior, even more so.
I am still learning and striving everyday to become an ideal woman like my mom and she continues to make an example of herself - she embodies beauty and brains, passion and compassion, originality and creativity, love and strength.
We had our share of differences (blame it on adolescence), but when I became a mother myself, I was able to confirm the formerly dreaded phrase: "Mother knows best". Now, I believe and state the same with pride.
