Celebrating Love Can Only Be a Good Thing!

While so many people in the blogosphere seem to be making a point of letting everyone know they won’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, I’ll be the black sheep of the family and tell you that I’m definitely going to. How could I ever turn down an opportunity to dress up and share a fabulous dinner at a nice restaurant with the person I love?! I’m not religious but I still celebrate Christmas (and I’m sure lots of you do the same) as it’s a tradition and a nice excuse to get together with my family and enjoy tons of delicious food (do you see a pattern here? LOL!). Since after I came back from living in the States, my friends and I have been celebrating Thanksgiving with a big roast turkey and everything, even though it’s not a holiday here… Well, I guess you get the gist, I LOVE to celebrate and eat (which, being Italian, are basically the same thing). I mean, amazing food and the people you love, does life get any better than that?!

Although I’m not usually into this type of girly packaging (I much more prefer sleek black cases à la Chanel), in preparation for the cheesiest day of the year, today I’m sharing with you an edit of all things heart. ❤︎ ❤︎ ❤︎ Enjoy! 😉

  1. The Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette is the newest addition to the Chocolate Bar family, but has already become a cult favorite. It features 16 chocolate-scented eyeshadows in various neutral hues with the occasional pop of color. Next to it, it’s not a Polly Pocket toy, but one of the Love Flush Blushes, which have been getting great reviews since their launch last year. Too Faced claim they’ll ‘keep your cheeks perfectly flushed for UP TO 16 hours’.
  2. Speaking of big claims… Here is what Physicians Formula have to say about their Happy Booster™ Glow & Mood Boosting Blush: ‘it’s infused with our Happy Boost Blend, featuring Happy Skin and Euphoryl, natural plant extracts which have been shown to promote a feeling of happiness by mimicking the effect of Endorphins and helping protect the skin from environmental stress’. Are you convinced yet?
  3. KIKO’s most recent Best Friends Forever collection is every girly girl’s dream! Featured in the picture above are the Heart to Heart Eau the Parfum Set, the Love Kiss Lip Balm and the very instagrammable Endless Love Lipstick with its heart-shaped bullet.
  4. You don’t need a prince to be a princess! A couple of spritzes of Vera Wang’s Eau de Toilette and you’ll instantly feel regal!
  5. Spending Valentine’s Day treating yourself with a nice bubble bath? Then the Love Spell Massage Bar and Love Locket Bath Bomb from LUSH are exactly what you need!
  6. A heart-shaped brush?! Yep, it’s a face brush from It Cosmetics and it’s called Love is the Foundation… Isn’t that brilliant?

Do you like any of the products featured here? And are you anti-Valentine’s Day? There’s so much hatred and negativity in the world that in my opinion a day celebrating love can only be a good thing! So, no matter what you’re doing tomorrow, I wish you all a day filled with joy and positivity! 🙂

    I am one of those that won’t celebrate, but if anyone wants to, I am more than happy for them. Sometimes you need a fixed date to remind you of making time for the ones you love. Or to just go out and eat. Nothing wrong with that.

    I’ve always wanted to try Vera Wang princess! I don’t really have a strong opinion on the matter at all, I guess it’s up to each individual if they want to celebrate it or not 🙂

    I am one of these people who won’t be celebrating it at least this year, one of the reason is being in a long distance relationship at the moment. I just don’t like how some people see VD as the only way of showing the love, beside that I am all fine with it. Who wouldn’t like to dress up, and have a great day with the other half, right? These hearts are so adorable, chocolate scented eyeshadows would make everyone happy!

    I am the same Carol, I like sleek stylish packaging a lot more! But I think that there’s definitely a time and a place for fun packaging – Valentine’s Day being one of them. I actually have the Vera Wang perfume and I love it, in fact all of her scents smell sweet and fresh to me.:D

    What a beautiful post lovely!! My partner and I just do little things to celebrate Valentine’s Day as we say everyday is Valentine’s Day for us! But I do really like all the love, romance and hype around the day. Love is definitely a thing that should be celebrated, no matter if that’s with you lover, with your family, or with your friends! Hope you had a fabulous time dressing up lovely!! Xx

    Woo hoo, I’m glad you finally got the Chocolate Bon Bons palette! It’s adorable isn’t it? I love the shades too! I’ve heard good things about the Vera Wang Princess perfume. I am in dire need of a new perfume, haha. I also have the Too Faced Love Flush in “How Deep Is Your Love?” which is really hot pink. I hope you had a wonderful Valentines Day!

    I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day but I’m also not against it at all. I just believe in celebrating the love around us as often as we can, not just one day of the year but I do understand that some people find it nice to have a specific day that reminds them to celebrate the love in their lives.

    Umm, I LOVE the brush. It’s going to take a lot of self control to not go looking for that. I wonder what the application would be like. Totally agree about the packaging, I very much prefer the sleek Chanel packaging. I loved this post!

    I love all of your suggestions, but I’m with you. I celebrated Valentine’s Day with my hubby and got all dressed up. It was fun! We’ve had bad luck in the past with restaurants not serving the best food or having the best service for that matter, but tonight was wonderful. Now it’s time for that bubble bath!

    I love the girly packaging. The Bon Bons palette was just so cute that I bought it mostly for the packaging. I love it!

    Gorgeous selection! I want to get my hands on the Too Faced palette and blush, the chocolate range smells so good and has the most beautiful packaging. I know we shouldn’t buy stuff just because they look cute, so it’s a good thing these products have great quality. ahahah

    Aw, the heart shaped brush sounds so cute (and really interesting I have to admit it’s weird to think of using a heart shaped brush but I suppose if it works, it works). I actually love celebrating things and having any excuse to dress up, so I mostly hang around friends and do something fun for Valentine’s Day. It’s a great excuse to buy lots of chocolate too 😛

    I hope you had a great time yesterday! We went out for dinner with my hubby, we tried a French restaurant in our neighborhood for the first time, and the food was delish! Best duck I’ve ever had in the US.
    I have one of these heart-y blushes from Physician’s Formula, and no, it doesn’t make my skin happier… Should I be surprised, lol?
