Valentine’s Day for One

Valentine’s day is supposed to be all about showing feelings of love, affection, and friendship.  I have always believed you should show this to those you care about everyday.  Sometimes, February 14th can be overrated.  Even when I was in a relationship, I wasn’t big on getting much on this day.  I only wanted to be loved, wanted, and cherished by my companion.  Why purchase expensive things when you can take a minute to reconnect?  Hold one another, cuddling, talking, caressing… It costs nothing!  Attention is free!  Attention is priceless and extraordinary!  This year, even if you do have someone, take time to give “attention” to yourself.  Here are some gift ideas for all the “single ladies”.  If you are lucky enough to receive something from someone then it’s just icing on the cake.

Every week I try to gift myself a fresh bouquet of flowers.  There is something so sensual about the way they look and smell.  I never allow them to die.  That’s why every seven days I replace them with something new and different.

Find your signature perfume.  This one by Betsey Johnson is my all-time favorite.  She gave it a sparkling and joyful opening, combining the notes of grapefruit, pear, black currant and tangerine. The middle notes unite the floral and fruity accords of freesia, lily of the valley and red apple, while the base bring cedarwood, sandalwood, praline, amber and musks.  I always ensure I never run out.

Take care of your appearance.  Your hands show your age!  Try something fun.  Add a little sparkle to your manicure.  I am loving all of Essie‘s new colors.  Try cocktails and coconut or resort fling, they’re subtle and clean looking.

There is nothing more sexy than a new pair of kicks!  Screw winter, purchase a new strappy stiletto and find someplace fun to wear them to.  One of my all time favorite places to go (when we aren’t snowed in) is Ultra Bar.  It’s located at 911 F Street NW, Washington DC. The nightclub holds five distinctive floors, each with its own event options, state of the art lighting and sound systems, projection screens for large-scale video productions.

Confession:  I have a handbag fetish.  I have my eyes on this bad boy.  I absolutely love Michael Kors handbags.  They last forever!

These are just a few things to make you feel special.  I hope you all have a blessed, loving, relaxing, and incredible Valentine’s Day.

XOXO Besos,
