If there is any reason to get in the spirt of a holiday I'm there. Christmas- string of lights aplenty, evergreen candle, plethora of red and green accents. Fourth of July- red white and blue requisite attire, classic American cuisine on the BBQ, planning a getaway for that extra day off- check, check, check. So, it's no surprise that when February 1st rolls around I'm already in the pink and red clichéd mindset of Valentine's day. Or Gal-entine's if you were a reader this time last year!
Of course preparation for this big day needs needs lots of planning, primping and eating. ;)
1. Florals. I head to the Flower Mart once a week to pick up the prettiest of seasonal blooms to decorate our home with, plus, I love bringing nature into the house!
2. Countdown. Having a actual calendar pinned to the wall by the front door is the best way to remind you of the upcoming special day.
3. Primp. Bare Minerals sent over a lovely care package with their newest Complexion Gel Cream and a slew of fun lip shades. I have been trying out all the colors and can't wait to don a fun lip for our V-day date night this week. I'm thinking the bold fuchsia would be perfect!
4. Me time, tea time. Indulging in sweets is my favorite part of this holiday. Sipping tea from china my grandmother gave me is a close second.
These are some of the shots from my Gal-entine's Soiree last year- too much fun! How are you spending your Gal-entine's day?
