Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Although I've always been the first to cringe and dismiss cliché teen relationships, I've come to discover that even people like me are romantic at heart. With Valentine's Day coming in just a few days, I can't help but dream about how this wonderful day would turn out this year. One thing's for sure, it would have the same warm spirit as any holiday : people exchanging gifts and chocolates, hugs and kisses on the street, well wishes and kind gestures filling the atmosphere. If you're single, please don't spend such a day to mope around at your fate of staying single forever and watch depressing movies and sniffle and cry into your granola : just because you're single, doesn't mean Valentine's Day can just slip past you like that! Being single can be bliss  because you can spend V Day to splurge and indulge yourself, like me I'm going to have a day out with my girlfriends : going out shopping at our favourite boutiques, grabbing coffee while having our manicure done, spending dinner in a cozy restaurant over candlelight {of course!}, and then sleeping over at my house watching chick flicks on the couch surrounded by the most delightful Laduree macarons, chocolate truffles and popcorn gossiping about anything and everything……

ANYA HINDMARCH VALORIE PINK GLITTER CLUTCH 
 This glitter adorned bag instantly spoke to my inner princess when I spotted it on Net-a-porter, and just looking at it makes me feel all pretty and glamorous. Owning this would not only turn a lot of heads {which is perfect for V Day}, it's ability to add just the right amount sparkle to any outfit makes it perfect for a summer day in or a party night out. Paired with a pair of heels, a little black dress and a few spritzes of perfume would just simply be, the height of luxury.

DIPTYQUE "JOHN GALLIANO" CANDLE
 Valentine's Day isn't what it is without romantic candles to bring the candlelight, but to be honest I chose this because of the name…..{and because someone recommended it to me!}
"LOVE, CHLOÉ" BODY LOTION
 A light, free and sensual scent for any occasion.

BRIAN LICHTENBERG "FELINE" SWEATSHIRT

A Valentine's Day staple that would make anyone's day.

But of course, that's just for me. I hope you spend the day however you like it, and grab some gifts for yourself along the way. And that reminds me : the gift guide. You can give them to your mother, your best friend, people who are close to you, or that special someone, just anybody really. Remember to attach a heartfelt note, or even a box of chocolate for a special touch because after all, Valentine's Day is a day of luxuries and warm feelings.
