Valentine's Day Luxuries

West Village, NY

Whether you’re single or in a relationship this Valentine’s Day, I say listen to Elizabeth Taylor and “Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.” Oh, and buy a box truffles (ahem, these!) while you’re at it.  Like I’ve mentioned in past posts, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to treat yourself to luxuries like a new shade of lipstick, a pretty bracelet, a yummy smelling candle, or even a dozen roses…  I’m personally not much of a lipstick girl (I prefer this lipgloss in C-Thru) but I am LOVING this nude lipstick kit from MAC.  This bubble bath is heavenly, this almond coconut body cream is my favorite, and this body polish leaves my skin feeling ultra soft.  This dainty gold choker would be gorgeous with a black off the shoulder blouse – plus it’s under $40 – and this bracelet is splurge worthy.  If you’re in NYC and in need of dinner reservations – I recommend Palma (for a charming, neighborhood Italian vibe), Vandal (for a more lively scene), or Rubirosa (if you’re over Valentine’s day and just want the best pizza in town.)  I’ll be spending Valentine’s Day in my hometown this year and am working on a super special post that will be up this week – stay tuned!

    Wonderful quote! I think it could definitely be applied to those who don’t get too excited about Valentine’s Day (like myself). I took your advice and just bought myself a new face mask. That plus a lovely candle, a nice glass of wine, and some Netflix is a combination setting me up for a pretty baller V-day.
