Monday’s Musing: Motherhood

I’m sure many of you were celebrating, or being celebrated, yesterday for Mother’s Day.  Hopefully your day started with champagne wishes and caviar dreams, in bed, like mine.  Kidding!  I did get to take a nap, which was lovely.

HEUCY is all about celebrating women — moms, daughters, grandmothers, godmothers…the entire ethos of our collection is all about YOU.  We want to enable our HEUCY Gals to do all of the amazing things they do, unencumbered by synthetic, uncomfortable material or an outfit that won’t make it past 5pm.

For those of you who are moms, you would probably agree that motherhood in this day and age is definitely not black and white; it’s complicated, busy, challenging, full and wonderful all at the same time.  Many of us have several different roles we need to fill throughout the day.  Which is why this article from The New York Times back in November really struck us.  It’s all about what “mommy-hood” has become in the 21st century, and how popular expectations for parents, and mothers, have become somewhat unattainable and unrealistic.  Here’s a link to Heather Havrilesky’s article, from The New York Times‘ November 9, 2014 Sunday op-ed:

We’re not saying we agree, or disagree…but it’s a great, interesting read.  Especially if you’re spending part of this day in line at the post office, or waiting somewhere else, and are in need of some quick lit and something to think about.  Besides waiting.  Hopefully you’re wearing HEUCY, so at least you’re comfortable.  Happy musing, gals.

It’s Thursday, May 7th, people.  And if you’re like me, you may wait until the very last minute to buy something for a special occasion.  Thank goodness for online shopping and free (or almost free) shipping.  We’ve put together a list of our favorite locally made Mother’s Day gifts, in case you’re behind on this one.  Don’t worry, we are too…and it’s not too late if you act now!

Here’s our Top Ten for Mom (and/or You):

1) Lindsay Emery’s gorgeous porcelain plates are rolled out by hand in her North Carolina studio. They’re very reasonably priced and would make a lovely, thoughtful gift for Mom (or yourself). http://www.suiteonestudio.com

3) Pierrepont Hicks’ Dunoon Parka is a cool take on a preppy classic.  It’s good looking and practical, so of course we love it!  A water repellent shell, draw cords at the hood and waist, four outside pockets, and adjustable Velcro cuffs make this jacket a keeper.

4) Page Sargisson Orchid Earrings are a subtle, beautiful way to tell Mom you love her.  These 10K gold cuties are made right here in NYC.

5) Leontine Linens — a great gift for those who love a monogram!  These linens are “as sturdy as they are beautiful” and almost all are washer/dryer safe. Hand-sewn in the South.

6) An Edie Parker bespoke clutch bag.  These aren’t cheap, but if you want to give someone a very special, personalized and cheeky gift that they’ll keep forever…this is it.

7) Hanky Panky lingerie.  Okay, this might seem a little too personal.  But it will be appreciated.  Underwear — especially the type that comes sans panty lines — is the gift that keeps on giving.

8) The Best American Short Stories of 2014.  This anthology of amazing literature never fails to entertain, and this year’s stories were chosen by one of our fave authors, Jennifer Egan, who won the Pulitzer Prize for her novel A Visit From the Goon Squad.

9) Shinn Estate Wine from the North Fork of Long Island.  This vineyard never disappoints.  And they deliver.  Nuff said.

10) A donation to a school via Donor’s Choose, on your mom’s behalf.  Definitely one of the best ways to spend your money.
