in love with love

Tuesday, February 05, 2013


What's not to love about Valentine's day? The rom-coms, the deliciously themed chocolate, the flutter of romance in the air. Whether I'm flying solo or in a relationship, it's definitely my favourite superfluous holiday. I especially love love themed products.

1) PAUL & JOE | POWDER CS | TRUE LOVE (link!)
Paul & Joe always get me with their packaging. Of course the quality of their products is great, too. I especially love these blush pots. The packaging is adorable and the engraved love birds call to the inner hopeless romantic in me.

2) TOO FACED | SWEETHEARTS PERFECT FLUSH BLUSH (link!)
Aside from the cute packaging, this is actually a lovely blush. The three colours can be used individually or all together for a pretty (shimmery) pink / peach glow. It sort of reminds me of Benefit Sugarbomb, but with more shimmer & a little more pigmentation.

3) LANCÔME | ROUGE IN LOVE LIPSTICK (link!)
I really like these lipsticks, from the formula to the available shades. I also love the packaging, I find the silver cases kind of romantic.

4) HEART PHONE CASES (link! and link!)
I change my phone case probably as often as I change my shirt, so why not have a specially themed one? I always find the coolest (and most unexpected) things at Urban Outfitters.

5) NICOLE BY OPI | HAVE A HEART
Instead of wearing your heart on your sleeve, how about wearing your heart on your nails? This is a quick and easy way to spice up your polish. No steady hand required.

6) JO MALONE | RED ROSES COLOGNE (link!)
Have you ever smelled Jo Malone's fragrances? No? I recommend you do so immediately! They smell divine. My favourite is Nectarine Blossom, but I think Red Roses is a perfect fit for the day of love. 

7) PANDORA | FOREVER LOVE RING (link!)
I owned this ring once. I say "once" because I lost it a few months ago. I am definitely going to repurchase though because a) it's a great ring to wear alone or to layer with, and b) it's cute!


Do you love love themed products too? Or do you shy away from this manufactured holiday? x

  1. I love that O.P.I polish however, I find it hard to actually get the hearts on your nail. I have never heard of that blush brand before, the packaging is gorgeous!

    1. Yes! I had difficulty with it, too, especially after multiple uses. It gets goopy fast. My trick is to put blobs of the polish on a piece of paper and then pick up the hearts that way. It doesn't waste a bit of polish, but it worked for me haha :) x
