If there’s one thing I know, Americans love to celebrate! Have you noticed all the new holidays popping up? I’m sure there’s one to celebrate our cats, dogs and ferrets too. While I don’t have any of those, I too jump at the opportunity to celebrate what’s important to me especially my loved ones. Being a day to celebrate love, Valentine’s Day is one of the most beautiful holidays to me. Besides having an excuse to consume more chocolate than usual, I get a kick out of seeing all the hearts in shades of red and pink (my favorite)! More importantly, I get to show a little more love to those who are extra special to me and it’s always nice to enjoy being pampered by that special someone.
This year, Vday falls on a Tuesday. If you’re working you may not have the time to spend the day as you wish. That’s ok! We have A Valentine’s Day Wish List just for you. Whether you find the time Tuesday or throughout the week, be sure to indulge in some of life’s little treasures.
With all the hustle and bustle, the noise, the running, the grinding that we do a massage should be a part of our regular routine. I’m fantasizing about getting one right now! Schedule an appointment at your favorite spa or have your favorite massage therapist pamper you in the comfort of your own home. Massages for everyone!
2. Mani & Pedi
What better way to feel beautiful than to enjoy a spa mani and pedi. Add a little spice with some nail art inspired by this day of love. There’s tons of inspiration out there for the lover in you who wants to show off her nails this Valentine’s Day with something a little festive.
There’s something about candles that say romance! Incorporating candles into your home décor makes for a beautiful accent but scented candles are amazing for aromatherapy. They’re perfect for every mood. Think of how you want to feel. What mood are you in. It’s Valentine’s Day so I hope you’re in the mood for romance. I personally love rose scented candles (and perfume) so I jump at every chance to buy a new one, or two. My latest favorite is Decoware’s Black Rose and Oud. You can’t go wrong with this sexy scent!
4. Fizz & Bubble
Why not enjoy a candlelit bath with a little something to help you unwind for the evening? These delicious looking bath truffles enhance your bath time experience by fizzing and foaming once submerged in the water. We love the beautiful packaging perfect for treating yourself or someone special but we especially love that we’re also moisturizing our skin with these shea butter truffles!
5. Seductive Eyes
Now this is where it gets a little sexier. They say the eyes are the windows to our soul. Show them off this VDay! There’s nothing more intriguing than a beautiful woman flaunting her seductive eyes with a gorgeous sultry look fit for a queen.
6. Carefree Hair
Ladies, I don’t know about you but this is one day I don’t want to spend time waiting in the salon. Besides, our lovers tend to admire us most when we’re in our natural glory. Toss the hair up, run your fingers through it, put it in a bun, wear a decorative scarf, let your curls dangle! Whatever your easiest, most carefree style, wear that one and spend your day doing something for pleasure.
7. Wine Not?!
I’m finding a glass of wine to be one of the most amazing ways to relax and wind down after a long day. Pick up a bottle of your favorite vino and sip the night away!
