Four Things for a Beautiful Valentines Day

Today I wanted to introduce you to one of my soon to be favorite weekly link-ups. In all of my craziness over the last few weeks (did I mention that I'm applying for 14 different law schools right now--- yes I'm crazy), I've kind of forgotten about Valentines Day.

Judge away. I'm single and I could careless about the whole thing--- though I will probably go out drinking with my girlfriends on the 14th. Great excuse? I think so.

Anyways. The lovely Ashlyn recently started this great link up with one of my other favorites, Kristen of the Fancy Things.





Four Favorites

Obviously today's theme is valentines day--- so I'm going to interpret this as perfect valentines day beauty items.

The Kate Spade Twirl perfume has been on my wish list for so long now. I've gone through like four sephora samples--- I'm thinking I may need to cash in some birchbox points and treat myself hmm.

This OPI polish In The Spotlight is just that. This is the perfect pink we've all been searching for.

Who doesn't love NARS Blush, and Orgasm is still all the rage. But as opposed to a powder, have you tried the illuminator? It's a brilliant glowy highlight but definitely has some depth of color. Plus its universally flattering, so it looks gorgeous even on our pale February skin.

Finally. I'm all about pink cheeks lately and this stila cheek palette has been on my radar for a few weeks now.

So those are my 4 favorites for valentines day beauty. Come link up y'all!

I've been trying to figure out how to cash in my birchbox points as well, and am leaning towards perfumes! 14 law schools?! You're amazing. I'll be out of town for VDay--for an international appellate advocacy competition--the anthesis of romance :) So I'll be drinking with law school friends. Sigh. Happy Wednesday. oxo

Being a product junkie, I just love the beauty-theme! I need to try the NARS Illuminator... I just ran out of Benefit Moon Beam so I'm in need of a new highlighter.

last spring i got the kate spade twirl box set (including full size perfume) from one of their online sales for $40. if you're patient, it's totally worth it!

p.s. i think drinking on valentines day is the best. in fact, my boyfriend and i still do it every year. booze > roses.

I really need to check out that Stila blush! Valentine's Day is not just for lovers... when I was single I celebrated my friendships with my girlfriends and I still do! Go out and have a great night!

Loving the nail colour! I may just have to go and buy it hehe. I've also tried the Nars (I got a sample from Sephora) and its lovely!! xo

Sarah Elizabeth said...

I love that perfume too! I continually debate if my next perfume purchase will be Kate Spade Twirl or Dior Cherie.

14 law schools?! You go girl! Are they all around the country or centrally located in one area?

Leslie said...
