Mom's Grand Mall Escape

Sometimes you just need some “mom” time. Let the hubby take the kids so you can let loose and enjoy yourself at the Mecca of shopping malls.

When you arrive at Mall of America, begin the morning with a coffee and a scone at Caribou Coffee, or choose from 100 varieties of tea at Teavana.

Once you're fortified, browse the shops on the first floor. There are loads of options for every style. Three sure bets:

- Local Charm: A Minnesota Jewelry Studio exquisite with sterling and gemstone creations.
- Staccato: To-die-for shoes from this Hong Kong luxury brand 
- H&M: Up-to-the-minute trends and exclusive designer collaborations that won't break the bank

Enjoy a light lunch at Wolfgang Puck Express or Twin City Grill before heading to the second floor.

Take the afternoon to pamper yourself. Get expert tips at MAC Cosmetics, or sample the latest beauty products at Sephora. Be sure to stop at L'Occitane to experience the fragrances and traditions of Provence.

For true indulgence, book a relaxing massage, manicure or facial at Progressives Salon. Or get your heart thumping with a spin on the Fairly Odd Coaster at Nickelodeon Universe. Who says moms don't know how to have fun?

Cap your day with a leisurely dinner. Napa Valley Grille serves seasonal cuisine from the wine country. Cheers!
