May is not only one of the most beautiful months in the entire year - but also time when we can celebrate Mother's Day and surprise our Mommies with something nice...
I am lucky as coming to Canada from Poland I have a chance to celebrate this day twice - second Sunday of May, as well as May 26th - in Poland :-) (and now when I became a Mom just last year - that makes me even more happy - the more reasons to celebrate that day - the better, right?)
Each year I receive lots of messages from You - asking what You should get for your Mom - so I thought I would share with you my picks for this year Mother's Day!
I am sure every Mom likes some sort of sweet desserts - so what about French macaroons? Not only they look fun and colourful but they are also delicious!!
And if You are in Calgary - there is definitely "a must-go" places when it comes to macaroons, called Yann Haute Patisserie, located in beautiful area of Mission, YYC.
Be ready - as soon as you enter the place - the smell is very indulging..and besides macaroons you will find all sorts of French patisserie there!!
Lots of Moms like champagne and all sorts of "bubbles", I guarantee:-) (It's actually my favourite drink!).
So I thought about featuring a couple of beautiful Canadian sparkling wines made in traditional Champagne Method and with 100% Ontario estate grown grapes.
The wines are also named after a very well respected mother, wife and woman – Catharine.
The wines come from Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery which is located in Niagara Ontario - this family owned and operated winery has been producing wine since 1988.
Cuvée Catharine Brut - named in memory of Henry's wife - Catharine Smith - using the traditional grape varieties (Chardonnay & Pinot Noir) makes this wine a modern Niagara expression of a time honoured wine style.
Cuvée Catharine Rosé Brut - a lovely sparking rose made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir by the method used in champagne. You will find vibrant fruit flavours here, and they're echoed by the crisp , refreshing texture and fine bubbles.
Both of wines are elegant and beautifully packaged - making the perfect gift for Your Mom.

If You would like to surprise Your Mom with something beautiful - You may want to get her the latest anti-aging line - "Blue Therapy" from Biotherm.
Providing with a deep sense of well-being upon application of the products from this line, this innovative, algae-rich formula's regenerative aquatic extracts work to visibly repair the skin's texture while diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
