The explosion of pink and red everywhere can only mean that it’s time to get our Valentine’s Day shopping on! We’ve put together a list of the items that caught our eye this season. Need to drop a hint? Just email this post to your sweetheart! Read on…
Essential to your Valentine’s Day look is bright, red lip. I love CARGO Lip Gloss in Tokyo*. It’s moisturizing, long-lasting and provides just the right pop of color—a perfect formula for your Valentine’s Day pucker! Find it at Beauty.com, $14.
How cute are these Nail Rock Valentine’s Day Designer Wraps? If you’re a fan of candy hearts, you need these! I find nail wraps are so much easier than trying to do nail art. Nail Rock Valentine’s Day Wraps are $7.50 for 16 wraps at NailRock.com.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect holiday for fragrance and new Coach Love* is the most romantic fragrance Coach has created. It’s a warm, feminine floral with woody undertones. I find it a very intimate and personal fragrance. The top notes include Mandarin, Dewberry, Green Violet and Freesia; the heart is lush florals–Magnolia, Jasmine and Gardenia, while the base notes include Sandalwood, Patchouli, Vanilla, Carmel and Musk. It smells a little different on everyone, which is one of the characteristics in a fragrance that I look for. The bottle is stunning! Coach Love Eau de Parfum is $72 for a 1.7 oz. bottle at Sephora.
I adore Stella & Dot jewelry and there’s nothing better than receiving it as a gift. My two favorite pieces from the Stella & Dot New Spring Collection are the Spring Awakening Necklace and the Serenity Small Stone Earrings. The Spring Awakening Necklace has everything–strong bright and pink colors to take you from spring into summer. The Serenity Small Stone Drop Earrings are so easy and wearable, definitely a key piece for your jewelry collection. To find a local Stella & Dot Stylist, or to place an order online please visit stelladot.com.
No need to wear your heart on your sleeve! This cute Wallis Double Heart sweater has tonal navy and grey knitted stripes, with two red hearts in the center. Stripes are so on trend right now and this sweater would be cute to wear out for a Valentine’s Day date! The Double Heart Sweater is $40 at WallisFashion.com.
If pampering is more your style or you’re looking for a couples getaway, then check out Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina in the British Virgin Islands. I’ve had Scrub Island on my “must visit” list forever. The resort is heating up Valentine’s Day with the introduction of special menus featuring popular aphrodisiacs and Ixora Spa is also getting in on the fun by offering some extra special services, like a Warm Honey Drizzle Sugar Scrub, Cherries and Chocolate Milk Bath, and Dark Chocolate Facial Mask. A full couple’s package featuring delicious Cherry Coco Coffee Wraps, Eterno Massages and Chakra Balance Hot Stone Back Treatments (yes!) is also available.
