This post is for the girl who loves gifting and making others smile by picking out the perfect little treasures for the loved ones in her life. I know I know Christmas was last month – but as caring and thoughtful as we are, we should never be done spoiling the ones we love! It truly is better than receiving!
SCROLL OVER IMAGES FOR $
Ive complied all your V-DAY 2K15 necessities right here! This selection has a pretty wide variety and even some items that you’re probably already second guessing – like why would you ever need mens eye cream? (well truthfully it works much better than females, totally kidding I have no clue) You see, this holiday is about pampering (its a made-up holiday so do what you want!) not just yourself but your lovable man, deserving mother and even your group of girl friends who may possibly be celebrating “single awareness day.”
– PRODUCT BREAKDOWN –
Alex & Ani “Open Love” Expandable Wire Bangle: available in gold/silver –> Found this gem on Nordstrom.com for under $25! Buy a matching one for yourself to remind each of you the love you have for each other while representing, sharing and attracting love. Girlfriends love exchanging gifts and this is one that is high quality, inexpensive and completely on trend.
Clinique For Men “Anti-Age Eye Cream” –> Found on Sephora.com for under $30! Cliniques cream instantly hydrates, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and reduces dark circles and puffiness. Disclaimer* I am not trying to make my man feel old, I’m trying to help him look and feel his best after a hard night of studying, a full work day, all while maintaining a social life. My medicine cabinet is full of products to help a sister out on her not so hot days and I want my guy those same pleasures! (He also never would buy it for himself)
Forever 21 “Hashtag Kiss Crew Socks”: also available in “Hashtag XOXO Crew Socks” –> Found on Forever21.com for $3!!! These socks may be a knock off of R. Kardashians “Arthur George” but for that price I cannot be mad! He will not only get actual use out of these but I just know he will have an extra pep in his step on VDay while wearing these. They’re like his own little secret, that yes he too is participating in Valentines day attire. They’re super modern and will be sure to amp up his #kissing game
Voluspa “Japonica – Goji Tarocco Orange Petite Decorative Candle”: available in a variety of scents –> Found on Nordstrom.com for $8 what a steal! Voluspa is known for their pretty, decorative tins but also their sweet scents. This particular candle fills the room with berries, mango and oranges. A candle instantly makes a house feel more like a home.
Depending on your financial situation these may not feel like splurges at all or you’re ignoring this whole segment because why bother?? Either way – enjoy these “splurge” picks.
Alica & Olivia “Cherry Pouf Dress” –> Found on Alice&Olivia.com for just under $700. Kourtney Kardashian was spotted last year wearing a similar A&O lips dress. Rock this frock out with a distressed black moto jacket or keep it sweet with studs and some simple bracelets. A perfect dress for a playful dinner date (preferable somewhere warm.)
Kate Spade “Kiss Me You Fool” Beaded Clutch: Made in Rwanda –> Found on KateSpade.com for around $200. I am in love with this beautiful bag. Would be great for daytime or evening, however I would wear it with distressed denim, mule sandals, a cream blouse and a great Stila red lip. Throw a blazer on during more frigid temperatures.
Clarisonic “Mia 3 Makeup Removal Expert” Nordstrom Exclusive –> Found on Nordstrom.com for $199. This little guys print is too perfect for words. I recommend Clarisonic for a healthy skincare ritual, starting with cleansing. Gentle but effective, travels easily and comes with a wide variety of interchangeable tools. If you’re the girl who has everything, add this to your shopping cart!
Kate Spade “Evening Belles Feather Mini” –> Found on Katespade.com on sale for $318 originally $398. The perfect party bag for the ultra glamorous gal! If you’re feeling brave wear this as a daytime piece, however this bag is meant to shine under party lights. The Kate Spade girl “tucks her coral lipstick away and floats back to the party.”
Kendra Scott “Emmy Drop Earrings” in Iridescent Drusy: Available in black/silver –> Found on Nordstrom.com for $80. Kendra Scott makes the most beautiful drop statement earrings that you’re still able to wear day to day. The shine and intricate work of this specific pair is unlike any I’ve seen by her recently. These earrings are one splurge that may be justifiable!
Kate Spade “Lava Heels” in Ivory –> Found on Katespade.com for $328. Normally I would not be drawn to these pumps, however there are a couple iconic elements they posses. The heart design resembles Moschino’s recent McDonalds themed collection – odd but very true. Also, if you’re a “Carrie Diaries” fan you can side with me that this is an 80’s inspired pump destined to be paired with a full tool skirt storming the streets of New York City. No one does it like Bradshaw but give these lovelies a try on of your own!
Express “Heart and Arrow Strappy Babydoll Dress” –> Found on Express.com for $79! This adorable print is perfect for concert wear – simplistic yet extremely flirty.
Comando “Up All Night” Thigh High Socks –> Found on Nordstrom.com for $34! I love the way pairing over the knee socks with shorter over the knee boots looks with a mini dress. Instantly slims your legs!
H&M “Short Jacket” –> Found on H&M.com for $30! I love love blazers for practically any occasion. A cropped red power jacket can only mean one thing – you’re in charge today! There is a visibly great shoulder line and will sit better over dresses and fitted blouses tucked into skirts.
—–> pair merchandise above together for an effortlessly hot outfit. Finish with tousled curls, minimal face makeup, focusing more on eyes and brows, chunky black ankle bootie, a Stila red lip and a spritz of Chloe Fragrance and you’re out the door in no time!
