By   |   May 4, 2012   |   Entertainment, Gal Approved

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13! Get a head start on the festivities with these hot shows and products which will make mom squeal with delight!

WATCH. We were curious when Syfy changed its logo last year, what exactly would it mean? Now, we know, it’s a network you can totally watch with your boyfriend! And this weekend is no exception. Why? Because our fave cross-dresser, Eddie Izzard, leads an all-star cast in one of Syfy’s story-telling remakes, this time of Treasure Island. He’s Long John Silver, so you know he’s going to give the stars of RuPaul’s Drag Race a run for their money when it comes to fashioning it up! Also starring Elijah Wood and Donald Sutherland, the four-hour special airs Saturday, May 5 at 7 p.m., only on Syfy. Invite mom over for a night of Cinco de Mayo margaritas and tune in!

PAINT. Want to make mom’s day a colorful one? Then you should definitely pick up a Sephora by Opi Nail Kit this Mother’s Day. This mix and match kit recreates the rainbow, with shades ranging from metallic to glitter. We DivaGals can’t get enough of Keep Me On My Misteletoes, a glimmery gold — because we know all moms are golden in our lives! Get the kit, currently available for $44, on QVC network and


SMOOTH. Mom doesn’t want a sticky face full of powder that clouds her beautiful skin on her special day. That’s why we’re saying hold the powder, and get her celebrity makeup artist Mally Roncal’s Face Defender, the clear finishing set that removes shine, but not mom’s natural glow. And since it’s a clear gel-like formula, it will brighten the face of moms in every color across the globe. That’s the kind of worldly celebration we love! Available on QVC and


DAZZLE. We know Mom is the queen in your life! So why not outfit her in jewelry that says exactly that? The Amanne Collection is an elegant line of charms, bracelets, earrings and necklaces that capture the culture, beauty and history of Africa. The line features Adinkra symbols derived from 19th century King Kofi Adinkra, who wore elaborate clothing printed with graphic symbols and geometric motifs. These elegant symbols represent different states of being, bring forth the language and culture of royalty, and reflect the ideals of destiny, faith, community and the power of love. Show mom you care! Visit and adorn her just in time for Mother’s Day!

BRIGHTEN. I know what my mom wants this Mother’s Day – one big smile from me! I’ll make sure its pearly white with Whitening Lighting, a haute new whitening kit. You can too, as we’re giving away TWO kits in honor of Mother’s Day! Click to enter our Diva-licious online giveaway.
