Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays, despite how ridiculous it might seem to a lot of people. I’m not really into it in the way that you would think. I’m particularly fond of the overly abundant amount of all things pink, hearts, and general cuteness and, when I was single, I really enjoyed celebrating it with my friends. We would buy each other cute presents and have lunch or dinner and just enjoy the fun of it all. So, don’t think that if you’re single, you can’t enjoy this silly hallmark holiday; you absolutely can even if it’s just with little candy hearts ♥
Because I really enjoy organizing all things cute and pretty, I thought it would be fun to share some romantically (by romantic, I mean heart shaped, because nothing equates romance like shapes!) themed favorites for fashion, beauty and some cute gift ideas ♥
I really love #1 – its such an adorable, yet cozy sweater dress which I personally think is perfect for those of you who are still enduring really cold weather! Another cute choice is the hearts sweater which is nice if you like to keep things casual and you can even pair it up with a nice pair of skinny trousers, leather skinny pants, red or black leggings, or even a cute skater skirt and some tights. #3 looks like a dress, but it’s actually just a really cute playsuit and I think it’s perfect for anyone who wants the appearance of looking dressed up without sacrificing comfort. It would go great as is or with cute tights in white, beige or even ones with hearts on them.
#4 is a simple pink coat, but I think since it’s still pretty cold out for a lot of people, pairing a simple outfit of leggings and skinnies with a cute top and then adding in a pretty romantic colored coat will brighten up any outfit AND keep you warm! #5 is definitely a night out kind of dress and it’s something I think is great for if you really want to be drop dead gorgeous on Vday. It doesn’t matter if you’re single or in a relationship; if your aim is to look smoking hot, this is perfect! You can pair it up with sexy black or white heels and red or classic nude lipstick.
#6 is perfect if you really don’t want to celebrate or do anything special for Vday, but you kind of want to rep the theme in some cute, small way. Since it’s a red heart shaped purse, it can go with a number of outfits and give it that bright pop! #7 is this adorable rose gold watch from Lulu’s and I think it’s such a cute one! It looks kind of like the super popular Michael Kors watches and I think it would make both a nice gift and a nice addition to any Vday outfit. Lastly, #8 is a very romantic and girly style dress that is perfect for someone who wants to achieve that innocent girl-ish look or just look really classically pretty on a date.
Some of these items are from brands I’ve tried or possibly tried the products themselves while others are ones I’ve been looking to try out and I think they all have super cute Vday airs about them. The Aurelia Miracle Cream Cleanser is a lovely cleanser that I’ve tried previously (review here!) and it’s so prettily packaged as well. It’s a great gentle cleanser for any and all skin types and assists with a number of skin issues. The Chantecaille Lipstick in Wild Rose is the perfect shade of bright pink which I’ve been kind of obsessing over lately and would make any makeup look really pop, especially neutral and smokey eye looks.
I’m not sure why I want the Paul & Joe Color Powder Blush except that the packaging is so beautiful, who wouldn’t? I’ve been dying to try One Love Organics’ products for ages, especially their Supercritical Chia Oil which includes tons of omega-3’s, vitamins and antioxidants to heal, nourish and repair skin.
Kure Bazaar polish is my favorite of the ones I’ve tried so far, especially for their color variety and incredibly long lasting and pigmented natural polishes, and this polish in So Vintage is such a beautiful dusty mauve color! (See my original post on Kure Bazaar here!) Steamcreams are my favorite for an all-purpose cream that I love keeping my handbag. They make great hand creams, but I’ve used them every from head to toe and they never break me out, moisturize fabulously, and smell lovely. This Vday tin called Oui Oui is so cute and it’s a fun gift or an adorable little way to treat yourself! (See my original post on Steamcream here!)
I haven’t tried many items from Tarte, but I’ve swatched them a million and one times at Sephora and know they’re in my future! This Cheek Stain in True Love is the perfect tint for getting that naturally blushing flushed look. Lastly, this Dior Chérie Bow Palette has the perfect selection of pinks and a nice charcoal shade for doing pretty pink smokey eye looks!
These last few are just cute gift ideas and I think they would make great gifts for your significant others as well as friends or even to treat yourself! They are all super cute and Vday themed appropriately, of course ♥
