This is the red that everyone needs, especially for Valentine’s Day. It’s universal, it’s creamy, but it stays where you put it.  You need a TINY amount and it lasts forever.  I’ve just solved your “I’ve been looking for a great red lipstick for 3894 years” dilemma.

This fragrance. I can’t even.  How do I describe this scent? Lavanila is an amazing company that uses all-natural ingredients in their perfumes (which is unheard of in the fragrance industry) but still finds a way to create scents that don’t smell like lavender tree bark.  They smell AMAZING.  This scent in particular, as crazy as it sounds, smells like the inside of a Coldstone Creamery.  When I worked at Sephora I told clients the same thing and they happily agreed. It’s not fake, but it’s sweet, fruity, and oh-so-perfect!! This is one of the very few scents that both men and women instantly agree on.  Go to your closest Sephora and ask for a sample!

This is an adorable tutorial and it’s great for someone like a teacher who doesn’t wish to receive loads of sugar on V-Day.  This would be cute for co-workers and young nieces as well.

Again, I love this because it’s not candy and it’s a great way to pamper your loved ones.  It’s made at home, which puts a little more thought and sentiment behind it and you can really spruce it up by putting a cute label, ribbon and spoon on it. Look out Martha!

 

“Spa Day” Gift Basket

This spa basket will probably go to one of the top women in your life due to the total cost of the basket. That being said, any woman would LOVE to receive something like this.  The magazines instantly sold me because THAT’S relaxation in my book! And maybe you could throw in your homemade lemon sugar scrub in there with a Blush Spa gift certificate? Just a thought. 😉
