The big night is almost here and you want to look your absolute best! Since we have a little time to plan, ladies, lets make sure we do it right. Check out our list of how to get ready from head to toe.
The Body Shop Chocomani Gift Set
Every girl deserves chocolate on Valentine's Day - but preferably some that does not go straight to their hips and thighs. Sheesh! Well now you can make that wish come true, and you don't even need a guy to do it for you! Whether you receive it as a gift or just treat yourself, The Chocomania Gift Set in medium ($45) is the perfect way to start getting ready for your big night out. A little hint of it's chocolatey scent will pep you right up!
St. Ives Fresh Hydrating Lotion Spray
This stuff is a savior for a girl like me. I need intense hydration for my moisture deprived Irish skin, but I never feel like I have time to lotion up. Well, St. Ives apparently heard my cry for help and created their Fresh Hydrating Lotion Spray ($7) in heavenly scents like Citrus & Vitamin C, Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract, and Oatmeal & Shea Butter. Right out of the shower just spray on and rub in and you will have glowing healthy skin for the rest of the night.
If you have a hot date lined up, then don't start thinking crazy thoughts like "oh yeah I can try that hair style!" Leave it to the professionals at Drybar (234 Clarendon St. in Back Bay) to style you up right! For just $40 their team can make your dreams of having Kim Kardashian hair into a reality. But remember appointments go fast - so book online now!
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer 20 SPF
I have been in love with Laura Mercier for the longest time! I am a die-hard fan of pretty much everything she makes, but especially the Tinted Moisturizer ($42). Not only does it have an SPF but it is light enough to give you that healthy ‘no-makeup’ look. It evens out skins tone and hides problem areas without looking overdone. Your best skin will glow and shine through to give you that "naturally beautiful" Valentine's Day complexion you desire!
Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes
Wow! I am in love with Kiss USA's Looks So Natural Lashes! Their Revolutionary Tapered End Technology delivers real-like lashes that blend seamlessly with your own lashes. 97% of women who tried them (like myself) forgot they were wearing them! The feather-light lashes are available in shy, flirty, and pretty and are so natural that you won't have to wear heavy liner to hide anything. These lashes are as beautiful and natural as you - and will make a perfect addition to you Valentine's Day look.
Bobbi Brown Pink Kiss
Swing by Bluemercury for all your makeup and skincare needs on the big day. They have everything to make your perfect look complete. On Valentine's Day I like to lean toward a more subtle and sweet look that's why I absolutely love Pink Kiss lipstick ($25) by Bobbi Brown. It gives you just the right tint that will have your date thinking - wow, she must have just been born this beautiful! Mission accomplished!
Ann Taylor Silk Georgette Lace Halter Gown
What to wear, what to wear... that always seems to be the big question. My thought is (and I could be wrong but it's doubtful) stick with something that is comfortable yet elegant and youthful. Don't be one of those girls that is trying to stuff all her problem areas into a too-tight dress. You'll end up looking like a little v-day sausage! Opt for something long (its cold out!) that moves with your body and accentuates your best features. I love the Silk Georgette Lace Halter Gown ($398) from Ann Taylor.
David Aubrey Zoie Multi-Stone Statement Necklace
And any outfit is not complete without a bauble or two. Thankfully, Charm & Chain offers an ever-evolving selection of jewelry from the seasonal and classic collections from today¹s most coveted designers. We instantly fell in love with this cute pink David Aubrey Zoie Multi-Stone Statement Necklace ($190).
I love a bargain as much as the next girl that's why I am a die-hard T.J.Maxx shopper and as such, I know that they have the top styles of all the hottest items that can make your V-Day sizzle. My most recent stellar find was this adorable lingerie set. Prices vary depending on the style, brand, etc. but you can expect to find something great for around $25.
LC Lauren Conrad Platform High Heels
Kohl's always has some great little hidden gem items that you would never expect to find at such a great price. I personally love the Lauren Conrad Collection and these darling little pair of LC Platform High Heels for on $37. Big win - and the perfect addition to your Valentine's Day outfit.
Drybar Morning After Kit
Once your man sees you in that lingerie he might try to tempt you to make a night of this date. If you decide to - make sure you are ready and prepared to sustain your fabulous look until the next morning. Make sure you pack the essentials in your purse for makeup and skincare (toothbrush too!) and also drop in this Morning After Kit ($35) equipped with a shower cap and Detox Dry Shampoo.
