Push present

Khloe Kardashian’s Bestie Malika Haqq Gave her A ‘PUSH Present’



Traditionally, a “push gift” or “push present” is something a spouse, boyfriend, fiance or partner gives to the woman who gives birth to the couple’s child after delivery, but in the celebrity reality TV world, things are never traditional.

Khloe Kardashian‘s bestie Malika Haqq gave her a diamond personalized ring bearing the name of the youngest Kardashian’s daughter  with Kardsahian’s estranged beau NBA star Tristan Thompson.

“Diamonds are always a part of life’s most meaningful moments, which is why I wanted to give this sweet ring to Khloe to celebrate becoming a mom to baby True,” the model and actress captioned an Instagram photo of Kardashian wearing a diamond studded ring that spells out True.

She ended the quote: “Diamonds are also mother nature’s greatest gift, so it had to be something natural. I wanted something that will stand the test of time and is rare, precious and unique. It just seemed like an authentic way to remember this beautiful time in Khloe’s life and in our friendship,” before tagging a diamond producer trade association’s insta, Real is Rare Real is a Diamond.

The love is symbiotic. Haqq’s  post came a few days after Kardashian came to Celebrity Big Brother and Dash Dolls alum’s  defense after a troll left a mean comment on one of Haqq’s photos.

In the comment section to a cute pic of Haqq in an oversized shirt and thigh high boots, the fan commented: “GIRL BYE!!!!! If it wasn’t for Khloé you would be a nobody… wait who are you again [sic]” to that Khloe replied to the comment:

“We are all entitled to our own opinions,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star clapped back. “And yes, love, you may have yours. But no need to be cruel when life is negative enough. But if it wasn’t for Malika then who knows where I would be emotionally.”

She went on to write, “She’s been my BFF since we were children. Loyalty and love means more to me than anything else ever could. Fame is fleeting. Malika is not.”

Nice!

Usually, a partner or spouse gifts a push present to the mom-to-be in his life before or shortly after she gives birth. Blac Chyna is breaking all the rules.

 

She hasn’t given birth yet but she has purchased her own present: a $400,000 Rolls Royce. The former model and reality TV show star posted a photo of herself on her Instagram account posed up near the fancy vehicle and snapchatted a mini video of herself driving it.

Gossip site TMZ actually spotted her at the Beverly Hills Rolls Royce dealer making the purchase and their sleuths uncovered that she paid for the car with a cashier’s check.  Whoa baby!

If she did buy that ride herself, she can afford it because her online boutique and Chymoji app are top sellers. Must be nice!

Chyna, real name Angela Renee White and her fiance Rob Kardashian are expecting their first child together. She has a 4 year old son named King with rapper Tyga, who is currently dating Rob’s half sister, Kylie Jenner. 

 

			

Review: This Larimar Stone Pendant Would Make a Great ‘Push Gift’

larimar stone 12

Whether you are a first time mom-to-be or a veteran mom having a second or third child, you may or may not have heard about the new trend growing in popularity in the United States called “push present” or “push gift”.

Essentially, it is a gift that a spouse or partner gives the expecting mom before or right after she gives birth. And even though the term references the “pushing” that happens in the delivery room, women who have C-Sections are also presented with a reward.

Often times, it is a piece of jewelry, though some have gifted spa or girls get-away trips, automobiles and other luxury items. For those on a limited budget, we’ve heard of some new moms given gift certificates to their favorite restaurant, flowers or hand-made gifts.

There is controversy surrounding it as some women who consider themselves to be feminist consider the new tradition as a chauvinistic one but not all agree.

I’m all for them and wish they were a trending thing when I was growing my family over 8 to 14 years ago.

Fortunately though, I got a chance to check out a new jewelry company that sells items that I think would make perfect push gifts because they have a secondary value.

Larimar Bliss handcrafts Larimar jewelry for women. In case you’re unfamiliar with Larimar, it’s a strikingly gorgeous turquoise gemstone that can only be found in the Dominican Republic. Other than widely being considered the Apex of turquoise stones, it’s also believed to have holistic healing attributes.​

I’m a firm believer in holistic and Eastern medicine and certainly the power of stones crystals.   Ancient civilizations have utilized the power of crystals to release mental, physical and spiritual blockages which are thought to also facilitate the free flow of throughout the body. On a cellular level, our bodies and quartz crystal are both made up of mineral silicon-dioxide. Because of this, we are naturally receptive to the vibrations of crystals as they transmit, reflect, store light and receive energy. When crystals and stones are placed directly on your body, they have a powerful vibratory effect that surges from the stone or crystal to you. According to the law of physics, thoughts direct energy and energy follows thought. The stones or crystals are thought to be a tool to help the thoughts of our consciousness connect with our body.

I partnered up with Larimar Bliss which sent me this gorgeous Curve Pendant (retail: $249) to review. It has a unique and whimsical shape and delicately houses the stone in the middle. The piece is certainly a conversation starter.

I first wore it to a casual event when I felt I would benefit from the good vibes that would eminiate from the stone. I certainly felt mindful and connected to the stone as I went about my day that day.

I then sported the stone to a formal reception and party this weekend during date night with my husband.

I styled it with a black mini dress with a flare skirt and a square plunging neckline that revealed the pendant. It was the pop of color to my black dress which I paired with nude patent leather pumps and a tan crocheted clutch. It was a little bit of warm weather for the transitioning season as Summer comes to a close.

I thought to wear my hair up to showcase the pendant more but eventually opted with wearing it down and using it as a double frame around the pendant.

I think it worked well. I loved the look overall.

For function and purpose and style, this Curve Pendant was perfect. Larimar Bliss has a large collection of other pieces. Customers leave positive feedback on the pieces all the time. Definitely consider Larimar Bliss!

A source to PEOPLE magazine who attended the celebration held Tuesday at the Kia Beach House in Malibu, California said Ross brought out the vintage limited edition 2102 Chanel Green Graffiti Body Bag to the deck and presented it to his wife who was elated to receive it.

Nice! It’s quirky, eclectic, unique and perfect for the Bohemian flower child that Simpson-Ross is!

It can be tough for guys like Evan to shop for the posh mom (an expectant or new) who has everything. So for those dads-to-be out there one wondering what to give that woman who has everything, here are some ultimate gift suggestions:

IMG_0677-0.jpg


1. Any mom would be happy to receive a Tiffany blue box, especially if in it there is a Tiffany & Co. Bezzet Yellow Diamond Ring in platinum with a yellow diamond in an 18k gold bezel setting. Cushioned in modified fancy intense yellow diamond, carat total weight 1.57 Get it at Tiffany’s for a mere $27,100.
2. If she is a bag freak and doesn’t already have one, you can get her the Hermes Matte Crocodile Birkin Bag which costs $120,000.  Named after after British singer/actress Jane Birkin. The clasp of this tote, which is actually made out of a crocodile, features 10 carats of white diamonds. Less expensive bags are available starting at $5,000. Good luck finding one. Last I heard, there is a wait list. But Jet Set Socialite site that had the list has since gone off line.


3. If  that affluent new mom in your life loves sweet spells, you can get her one of the world’s most expensive bottle of perfume, Clive Christian No. 1 which sells for $2,150 for 2 ounces. The perfume is an extravagant combination of Indian jasmine, mandarin and sandalwood. Its bottle is handmade from lead crystal, while the neck is 24-karat gold-plated sterling silver, set with a solitaire. Wow!
4. If that spoiled rich new mom has a sweet tooth, she may appreciate getting a dark chocolate truffle from Knipschildt for $250. It sells for $2600 a pound. With candy that rich, you have to cherish every calorie.

5. My favorite  gift is anything spa related. If your mom has time on her schedule, book her a spa trip to the Hotel Victor in South Beach (which was bought out by the Hyatt) It offers guests of its penthouse suite the opportunity to lounge in a tub filled with 1,000 liters of pure Evian water, fuchsia, and orange Gerber daisies. Serena Williams was the first to try out the $5,000 bath, which is given in a 350-gallon infinity tub. You can also snack on smoked salmon lollipops, foie gras and chocolate as you bathe.

6. A monogrammed robe. For the first weeks after the baby is born, a new mom will be restless, sleepless, and anxious trying to navigate her new role, nurse, recover and heal from the pains of labor and delivery and entertaining guests. It can be overwhelming. Nothing can make a new mom feel comfortable and comforted than being enveloped in a nice plush robe, especially during cold and crisp Fall or Winter nights. Having it monogrammed adds the nice extra special touch. For those in warmer climates, a pretty frilly robe in pastels, paisley or other feminine design can help a new mom feel sensual during a time when she may be dealing with bloating and other pregnancy side effects. Brookstone sells a nice one starting at  $59.95.
 
 
7. Plush Slippers Many new moms experience water retention in their feet and legs during and immediately after giving birth. C-Section moms have it even worse because surgery creates even more water build up. As such, many moms quickly become to realize that they may not be able to fit into their old shoes and won’t for a while. A great warm and comfy pair of slippers would be an ideal for any new mom, for lounging around the home or just for slipping into after a day out and about on feet that are still recovering from childbirth.  makes a comfy shearling slipper that retails for $75.

8. Anything from Tiffany’s – The sight of that little blue box can put a glimmer in any woman’s eye. For a new mom whose fingers may be swollen from retaining water, she may be upset and frustrated that she can no longer fit her wedding or engagement ring. Rather than put it away, wouldn’t it be a wonderful surprise to present her with a lovely chain to hang the rings on and wear around her neck so she can keep the symbol of your love and fidelity by her heart? Yes. Yes indeed. And as a self-proclaimed connoisseur of all things Tiffany’s related, believe me, that you are sure to find a necklace in a variety of budgets at Tiffany’s.

An Elsa Peretti Pendant Chain  sells for $185.00 and can fit a ring easily along with the alphabet pendant bearing either the mom’s or new baby’s initial.
