Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and whether you’re single or not, it’s the perfect excuse to treat yourself or someone else. Whether you fancy a little pick me up, or it’s for your partner or bestie, these are the perfect little indulges to celebrate the day.
No matter where you end up going or doing on Valentine’s Day, the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette offers all the most romantic eyeshadow shades you could ever need. You could create a shimmery, soft pink look, or dive into a sexy, matte smokey eye. Basically, this palette is probably one of the most gorgeous I’ve ever come across, and you need to get it.
The Charlotte Tilbury lipstick trio presents three mini versions of their iconic K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipsticks – the dreamy Penelope Pink, pretty pink Bitch Perfect, and iconic So Marilyn red. They’re handbag sized, so they are ideal for touch-ups everywhere, from a first date to drinks with the girls. These are the first CT lipsticks I’ve purchased *probably the first of many*, and I’m really pleased as for the price of what one full sized lippy would be, you get to try three different shades!
Once you’ve finally managed to tackle what to actually wear on Valentine’s Day, finish off your outfit by adding a spritz of the Paco Rabanne Olympea. I’m not the best at describing scents, but this is a firm favourite perfume among many including myself, and well worth a smell next time you’re looking for your next purchase – plus it looks oh so pretty!
While I do think these make perfect gifts or treats for yourself, there is just nothing better than a selection of chocolates. Courtesy of Lindt, the Master Chocolatier Collection offers a range of different flavours and textures. In particular, the Dark Praline and Toffee Truffle went down a treat! The variations of chocolate mean that you get to enjoy each and every one in their own way, and it’s safe to say there weren’t any left after I had ‘taste tested’ them!
I think it’s important to show your loved ones all year round that they are appreciated, but I do think Valentine’s Day can be a great day regardless of what your relationship status is. Let me know what your plans are, whether it’s out for a few drinks, or curling up with the cat and watching Netflix – *guilty!*
