every year, i start out grousing about valentine’s day. how it’s a hallmark holiday, created by retailers to force us to spend money, is sheer torture when you’re single, allows restaurants to charge ridiculous amounts of money for mediocre prix-fixe meals, and really…didn’t we just finish buying christmas gifts?
but i always end up falling for valentine’s day in the end. i’m swayed by all that pretty pink and red candy, the paper hearts strewn everywhere i go, and the fantasy that maybe, just maybe, i’ll send out valentine’s day cards where i failed so miserably at holiday cards this year.
~ bortolomiol rose prosecco: because, really, when else is pink prosecco de rigeur? (believe me, this one should always be…) ~ peggy li rough diamond disc necklace: so subtle and lovely – i think it’s the prettiest valetine i’ve seen this year. plus, can you even talk about valentine’s day without jewelry? ~ see’s candies hot hearts: simply the best valentine’s day candy ever! ~ kate spade striped bow tank: it’s freezing, of course, but this ribboned tank makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. in july, i’ll be wishing i’d splurged on this…and it will be sold out. ~ bristols 6 lovin’ kit: in case you (or your valentine) are feeling a bit more naughty than nice… ~ paper source DIY moustache valentines: is it even possible not to smile when you see these guys? ~ rifle paper co. customized valentine’s portrait: can you imagine a sweeter valentine than this? ~ zedena designs enamel heart necklaces: conversation hearts get me every single time, and these might be the cutest yet.
what are your plans for valentine’s day this year?
