Happy Valentine’s Day readers!!!!! I hope you are all having a fantastic day so far. There are a lot of things to love about this day, it’s not just about whether or not you are in relationship. It is a great time to find joy in the dead of winter and to reach out and appreciate your friends and loved ones. My friend Ellen hosted a BRILLIANT Galentine’s Day dinner party for a bunch of girlfriends. (I’ll post picks on Facebook)It was seriously the best, but here are a few things I am doing and thinking of today to give a few giggles and to brighten up my day.
1.) I found THE FUNNIEST valentines on A Fish Who Likes Flowers’ blog. I needed something super quick for my work friends who all have a wicked funny sense of humor. So I made a PDF which you can download for free HERE. Then I downloaded the printable wrapping paper from Mein Lila Park’s blog and just cut out strips that I wrapped around each valentine as a little “envelope”. Needless to say, they were a hit.
2.) Everyone needs a good red lipcolor. These are my two favorite. Dior Addict in Red Carpet is the perfect red lipstick, I bought it for my wedding. It has some blue undertones so it makes your teeth look SUPER white. The Nars gloss in Norma is the perfect top coat. It has a little more orange in it so it makes the whole look more neutral. What’s great is that because one is warmer and the other is cooler, you can mix and match with practically any gloss/lipstick combo you have. They are the best for layering to get the shade you want.
3.) I love decorating for the holidays. I usually put up some Valentine’s day stuff as soon as I take down my Christmas tree. In the entry way, I have some apothecary jars filled with candy. Did anyone else know that there is a whole starburst bag of just the red flavors? It changed my life when I found them! I also found the cutest tic tac toe game for the coffee table. I was shopping at Homegoods and found it and the x’s and o’s made me think of v-day.
