Gift Guide: St. Valentine, Cupid, and Nicolette Walk into a Bar....

You've probably already noticed that I have a penchant for pink and all things girly, so it should be no surprise that I absolutely revel in that time after New Years when all things pink, red, romantic, and bedecked-with-hearts start rolling out. Yes, it's completely cheesy, and yes, Valentine's Day is a total Hallmark-Holiday, but I still ooh-and-ahh at it all. Wonderful love-life aside, Valentine's day has become less about celebrating my relationship (I think that should be done 365-days a year), and more about indulging in the excessively lovey-dovey on a day where my (otherwise) guilty pleasure has taken a turn to the socially acceptable. Of course, I'll gladly accept a bouquet of red roses, bottle of bubbly, or coffret of chocolates (Vosges Viola's, please) from my S.O., too.


1. Rose Gold Bow Ring, Besty Bow Ring. 2. Loose Color in Twirl, Red Light, and Platonic, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, $12 each.  3. Heart Intarsia Sweater, Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, $295. 4. Valentine's Day Coin Purse, Miu Miu, $450. Part of Miu Miu's insanely cute (and limited!) Valentine's collection! 5. "My Old Flame" and "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy," Deborah Lippmann, $16-$18. 6. Perspex Lips Clutch, Lulu Guinness, $390. 7. Sugar Rose Lip Balm, Fresh, $22.50. I've probably tried every lip balm on the market, and this is still one of my favorites. 8. Rosa Mundi Candle, Diptyque Paris, $65. 9. Wanting II Bow Flat, Melissa, $89. 10. Matte Red Satchel, Cambridge Satchel Company, $170. 11. Angular Cat-Eye Glasses, Cutler and Gross, $400. 12.

  1. You've put together so many great picks! I don't really 'do' Valentines, but you've inspired me to make my next manicure my red sparkly Deborah Lippmann polish! You've got so many other great picks here too, I love the new Rose Diptyque scent and the Agent Provacteur fragrance, and a Sugar lip balm has been on my wishlist for ages!

  2. Maybe this is the day you can go girly and pink all the way!
    So I will definitely wear red or pink (or both) on valentine’s day! One thing I
    regret is the fact that I never visited the  Agent Provocateur store in Soho! i should have
    done that!

  7. Yep, we're definitely related. I literally want EVERYTHING on this list, but especially that rose gold bow ring, Miu Miu heart purse and Lulu lips clutch *sigh*.

    P.S. Got myself a silver Cambridge satchel last week and it's SOO good (you definitely need one)

  10. Love this post! That sweater is adorable, but I NEED that lip clutch. I see it comes in a bunch of other colors too, ahh - so good!

  11. Oh it's wonderful! I've got my eye on the satchel but I just can't make up my mind over which colour I want and now I have discovered "zatchels" too much choice! XX

  12. I love this list! I wish I could find a cute heart sweater like that or the one from asos in something that would fit a very busty and army 20!
    Even though I'm normally not a big Valentine's Day person, I really really am feeling it this year. I think it might have something to do with the surprise delivery made by UPS of a Vosges box that I'm not allowed to open!

  14. I think it's so much fun to grab inspiration from the holidays, even if you don't directly celebrate them! The rosa mundi diptyque candle is sooooo good. i wish it was a permanent fragrance of theirs rather than a limited edition one!!

  15. Oh, what you REALLY need to visit next time you're in NYC is the new(ish) Agent Provocateur store uptown!!! It is two floors, brilliantly designed, and just stunning. Every time I visit, I have a little daydream that it's my home.

  18. I really wish we lived in the same city so we could just share our accessories wardrobe, since we inevitably have and want all the same things. I'm definitely needing a satchel!! Oh, what color to get?? Gold to match your silver?? xoxoxo

  24. It is favorable deal in each and every way but it's really wrong just with its monthly interest payday loans while she does not have any regrets, she now realizes she might have developed a more informed choice.
