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

4 oz NUVO Sparkling Liqueur

Serve in a Champagne flute

Mother's Day Sales & Gift Ideas Part 3

C.O. Bigelow Candle Fragrances ($19.50): Give mom a taste of summer this Mother’s Day with C.O. Bigelow’s fruit scented candles. In lush, juicy Peach and ripe Pear scents, the candles are an indulgent way to perk up any atmosphere.
Provide Mom with some pampering with ONE Hand & Body Lotion and lip balms from Target or (I absolutely love that Target carries new, affordable, quality items in their beauty department).

These would be fun to include in a purse or makeup bag as a gift. Housed in a recyclable tube, the eco-chic hand and body lotion pampers skin while preserving the planet. I've been fortunate to try out the Lip Tune Up and Shea my Lips and absolutely love them too. These little tins pack a lot of moisture and leave lips moisturized, perfect as a base before applying lipstick.

Pamper your Mom this Mother's Day! The Branche charmeuse pillow case is woven with mulberry silk extends blow outs and helps to avoid wrinkling hair and skin overnight. This is a gift that keeps on giving!

I was fortunate enough to try one of these candles out. When lit, the rooms smells like an Aveda spa! It's perfect for your bathroom or as a housewarming gift. Don't forget about Mother's Day as well, and mom will be proud knowing that her gift went towards a good cause.
