Be My Valentine?

I'm not a huge fan of red, so I'll be wearing pink and nude this Valentine's Day. No plans set, just hoping to spend time with my hubby. But if we did go out, this is totally something I would wear for a Valentine's Day date night! This outfit can be dressed up or down depending on what type of jacket you pair with it. I recently bought a light pink moto jacket from Forever 21 that could dress this outfit down for a fun bar night.

Valentine's Day Prep - Part II

                                       
For those of you who didn't celebrate this weekend, make sure you are ready for tomorrow! Give yourself a last minute Valentine's Day themed mani, set the mood with candles, and start pouring some drinks!

Give yourself a mani with a pretty pink or red for Valentine's Day! Check out Pure Ice's crackle nail polish set. You can find these at Walmart, for a very reasonable price! Great to test out the Crackle effect if you haven't tried this trend already. Sparkle pink is the base, and the solid pink is the top Crackle coat. I used two coats of sparkle as a base and it looks awesome by itself. 



                                              

Set the mood this Valentine's Day with a candle from Bath & Body Works. Try out one of their new scents, like Jungle Kiss, which smells like lilies and peaches, with a hint of coconut.

Bath and Body Works 3-wick candles are my favorite. They burn around 30-45 hours, and can fill a really large room with their scent. They are made of the highest concentration of fragrance oils, an exclusive blend of vegetable wax and lead-free wicks for optimal performance. I always like to stock up on these for hostess gifts too :)


Themed drinks are the best. Check out POM Wonderful Pomegranate Juice and NUVO Sparkling Liqueur to make some pretty Valentine's Day themed drinks!

The POM Pink Angel
1 oz. POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice
1 1/2 oz. kurant vodka
1 oz. triple sec liqueur
1/4 oz. fresh lime juice (or squeeze 2 lime wedges into the shaker and drop them in)
Orange peel for garnish


NUVO Kiss
4 oz NUVO Sparkling Liqueur
1 1/2 oz Frangelico
Serve in a Champagne flute


Sinful Colors 'Pretty In Pink' Collection


Pink or red? Your only options for Valentine's Day colors :)

Check out Sinful Colors 'Pretty in Pink' Collection. Beautiful shades of pinks...and majorly affordable! You can find Sinful Colors nail polish in drugstores (in and outside of the US), and at the affordable price of $1.99! I'm wearing Soul Mate in my pictures, with a base coat, 2 color coats, and fast drying top coat. The nail polish went on really smooth. This color specifically would look awesome with a tan (fake tan, that is!).Here is a breakdown of the colors in the collection:
Pink Forever - Bazooka meets Bam-Bam to equal beautiful
Beautiful Girl - Classic ballerina with a flirty finish
Glass Pink - Sheer, shiny, shimmer-happy bliss
Boom Boom - Magenta-infused pink, which pops on toes and tips alike
Scandal - No-nonsense neon, slick and sensational
Soul Mate (pictured) - Muted peachy pink with a melon twist

On a separate note, check out this awesome ring I got from Forever 21. It's a double ring, so it fits around my ring finger and middle finger. I get so many compliments on a $6 ring!

Need some ideas for fun Valentine's Day gift ideas for friends? Or girlfriends (boys - I'm talking to you!)? Here are some great products and sales:


The best part about Valentine's Day is giving and receiving Valentine's Day cards! I'm loving Bonnie Marcus Collection cards, especially this one. Be unique this year and buy cards no one else will have! The best part: a portion of the proceeds from the sale of her products, will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and other organizations promoting breast cancer awareness.Bath & Body Works is really promoting Valentine's Day this year, they have tons of heart-themed items. I fell in love with these PocketBac anti-bacterial gels. There are 5 different 'love' themed ones, and right now they are $5 for 5. I bought them for my coworkers!
