Mother’s Day Indulgences Inspired by L.A.’s Power Moms

Rachel Zoe's Box of Style

Rachel Zoe’s Box of Style

SoCal might be known for its laid-back vibes, but L.A.’s power moms get it done. Whether they’re running fashion empires, opening restaurants or toting their kids to swim class, they manage to look like they’re doing it all — and with nary a beachy wave out of place. And this Mother’s Day, their business savvy and style inspired some of our favorite indulgences to gift, destinations to go to and new concepts to gawk at, whether it’s for you or your favorite mom.

To Gift: Rachel Zoe’s Box of Style

If you think that a gift fit for every mom out there doesn’t exist, think again. Rachel Zoe — a supermom in her own right, running a media business, a clothing line, and still deep in A-list styling gigs — is offering just that with the latest Box of Style, featuring products from brands all founded by women. Inside, you’ll find earrings from Adornmonde, a neutral wear-everywhere polish by Butter London, a cult-fave face wash from Tatcha (one of FTD’s favorite beauty lines), a BKR water bottle and more. And believe it or not, it’s a $400 value that you can snag for just $79.99 — plus, get $20 off with the code SPRING20, making it even better. And at this price, it’s the perfect thing to gift your own mom and snag one for yourself.

To Go: Jessica Biel’s Au Fudge

Mommy and me never looked as tasty. When Jessica Biel set out to create a spot that adults and kids alike would enjoy, it seemed like a tall order. After all, it’s not the first time this concept has been tried in L.A. But Au Fudge, a restaurant and marketplace on Melrose Ave., has managed to pull it off perfectly. Inside, you’ll find plenty to love, whether you’re looking for a cocktail or mac ‘n’ cheese. The kids can explore a treehouse or partake in a drum circle under the tutelage of an Au Fudge Au Pair.

“People are enjoying it, kids are loving it, and families are happy, and that’s what we care about,” Biel told Delish.

Don’t get distracted by the bakery case, which is chock-full of cookies, cupcakes, and, yes, fudge, because the menu is definitely not something to be missed. And the marketplace, fully stocked with kids’ toys, home goods and more, is a definite must-visit for kids big and small!

If you think it’s too good to be true, take a look for yourself:


To Gawk: Lisa Vanderpump’s Vanderpump Pets

Vanderpump Pets

Let’s not leave out pet moms and the fur babies they dote upon! You might think you’ve met that dog person before, but nobody can hold a candle to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump. To celebrate her adorable pooches — and offer up a luxe place for people to adopt a fur baby of their own — she opened up Vanderpump Pets.

You can’t miss the hot pink facade of this sparkling, glam pet-centric mecca where dog (and cat) obsessives can indulge in Chanel-inspired carriers, rhinestone-studded collars, and plenty of extras you never even knew you needed. Brightly situated on West Third Street, the shop sits alongside must-visit shops like Anine Bing, but offers a one-of-a-kind experience that shoppers won’t find in their usual haunts. Warning: There are cute dogs and you’ll want to take them all home. Not in L.A.? Don’t worry, you can shop online.

To Give: Jessica Alba’s Honest Co.

Not all moms are celebrating Mothers Day with a trip on the town. If you know a new mom — or if you’re one yourself — a basket of good-for-you goodies from Jessica Alba’s Honest Company are always a great idea. Alba has grown her company from a baby-centric operation to include a full range of products for home and more. As a mom herself, Alba knows what a mother needs, from newborns to toddlers and beyond. She’s been through it all. And now that the products are easily accessible at retailers such as Target, there are plenty of spots to pick up a body wash (which works great for moms and kiddos alike), body lotion, or detergent. Whatever you choose, know that it’ll be graciously received and used to the very last drop.
