Nolcha Shows Monday Must Haves Mother’s Day Must Haves

May 8, 2017

To all the mom’s out there….we salute you!  This week the Nolcha Shows Monday Must Haves is a collection of our favorite goodies from independent brands that your Mom is guaranteed to love…did someone say good books?


1. Cheryl Eve Acosta: Your mom deserves something special this year and nothing says ‘I love you’ quite like a breath taking necklace from independent jewelry designer Cheryl Eve Acosta.  Cheryl Eve Acosta’s sculptural jewelry challenges traditional concepts of wearable art. She creates bold and distinctive pieces of adornment, which position the human body as a site of display. Although each piece represents a form inspired by nature, the work is less concerned with evoking a place than with engaging the wearer as part of its creation. The line between a pure or natural body and one that is inextricably bound to self-conscious presentation of beauty or aesthetic or even fine art, becomes blurred for both the wearer and the viewer.  Your mom will treasure this elegant piece.


2. James Carletons: There’s no place like home…these Dorothyesque red shoes from James Carletons are the epitome of style and sophistication. Your mom deserves only the best and you just know you’ll have her singing your praises with these awesome shoes!


3. Laure Filho Jewellery: If you think your Mom deserves something special this year, then these unique earrings are the perfect gift for Mom this Mother’s Day.  Designer Laure Filho fuses traditional craftsmanship with an artist’s eye to create strikingly different jewelry.  Precious metals and stones in simple, unstructured, organic forms give the work a tactile, earthy quality.  These earrings are stylish, timeless and beautifully crafted.


4. United Beauty: Your mom will look tip top thanks to the United Beauty GelTouch Kit! The seriously cute and ultra-portable GelTouch Mini Starter Kit transforms ANY of your favorite nail polishes into a high-shine glossy, long lasting, gel manicure that your mom will love! GelTouch is an innovative, new breed of LED cured clear Top Coat that transforms ANY nail polish into a GEL in only 60 seconds!  Your mom needs this in her life!

10. Ecru New York: Good hair, we care!  Treat your Mom to some much-needed hair pamper products this Mother’s Day courtesy of Ecru New York.

Silk proteins are the highest grade protein ingredients that are created from the hydrolysis of silk fibers. They are actually “the inner part” of silk removed during this process. Originally, this ingredient was only used in high-grade skincare, however when applied to hair, silk proteins form a transparent protective film that seals the hair cuticle increasing elasticity, natural shine and further preventing damage to the hair.

ECRU New York was created to “TREAT & PERFORM”. Silk proteins are used in many products within the collection because they strengthen and improve the integrity of the hair.
