MOR Cosmetics The Vow Gift Set ($17)

As many of you know, I am a huge fan of the products from MOR Cosmetics because they are beautifully made and come in the most gorgeous packaging. I am loving this Limited Edition Vow Gift Set, inspired by the new Sony Pictures’ V-day film The Vow (in theaters February 10th.)  This precious set comes with a Lychee Flower Soapette and Hand Cream presented in classy heart shaped tin. Lychee Flower is a sparkling sweet scent with ripe berries, soft powdery florals and the slightest hint of green forest woods. I love this fresh feminine scent and the affordable price of this great set.

Stella & Dot Ever After Necklace ($49)

I was recently invited to preview the new Stella & Dot Spring Collection and was pleasantly surprised by the fantastic, hip, modern statement making pieces of beautifully made, affordable jewelry. There were many pieces that caught my eye, but I thought this lovely delicate Ever After Heart Necklace was a perfect fit for this gift guide. This dainty heart comes in silver or gold and is pierced by the chain. This necklace is a Maya Brenner Collaboration Style (Maya Brenner is a twelve year jewelry industry veteran with a strong celeb following) and it showcases her simple, classic, bold and modern style. I love the look of this sweet necklace layered with other complimentary necklaces. Very chic and understated.

Rodial Glam Balm Lip ($25)

Rodial makes fabulous, active anti-aging products that really work, and their new Glam Blam Lip is no exception. This new luxurious moisture-rich balm plumps lips, fills in fine lines and smooths imperfections with filling spheres, nourishes with rose wax and protects against environmental damage with pomegranate extract. This potent balm volumizes your lips and also does a great job of soothing dry, chapped lips. I love the rose flavor (totally makes me think Vday!) and the way my lips instantly feel hydrated and nourished. Love it!

Stephanie Johnson Ibiza Alex Sparkle Clutch in Berry ($45)

Confession: I am addicted to Stephanie Johnson travel and makeup bags! Truth be told, I am stock piling quite a collection of these statement making versatile bags because the designs are so fab and collectible worthy. How could you not love this Berry Sparkle Clutch? Perfect for your Valentine’s Day evening on the town, right? It’s super cute, sparkly and fun, just love it! And it’s the perfect size to fit all your makeup essentials. Get one now before they are sold out!

Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment ($25)

Every beauty junkie has a Fresh Original Sugar Lip Treatment in her product arsenal, and now this cult fav product has upped it’s game by adding fab anti-aging ingredients to make it even better. The Sugar Advanced is fortified with a high concentration of ultra-nourishing, age-delaying ingredients, including Hyaluronic Spheres, that penetrate the skin to fill in wrinkles and plump the lips, and sea fennel extract, to help smooth fine lines and define the lip area. This exciting new line extension repairs, nourishes, plumps, and smooths your lips and I love how supple and moist it makes my lips feel and adore the Fresh signature sugary lemon scent.

Havaianas Love Sandal ($28)

I live in my Havaianas, seriously they are the most comfortable flip flop ever! I cannot resist these super adorable Valentine’s Day worthy limited edition Love Sandal that come in a cute special edition red velvet shoe bag. This sandal is the slim style with a metallic silver strap and a colorful hearts graphic print. LOVE LOVE them! They will sell out fast!

Antica Farmacista Champagne Fragrance & Candle Gift Set ($88)

Anyone care for a little bubbly this Valentine’s Day? Me please! Especially when it’s in the exquisite luxurious home fragrance products from Antica Farmacista. The Champagne Fragrance and Candle Gift set consists of a home ambiance fragrance diffuser (with sticks) and a long-burning candle elegantly packaged in a gift box. The champagne fragrance is vibrant and fresh with a sparkly citrus floral top note, a sensuous and sweet fruity middle note and a subtle vanilla base note. I am so impressed with the complexity of the Antica scents and I think these products look gorgeous on display and smell amazing.

Too Faced Natural Kiss Neutral Lip Color Collection ($24)

Too Faced does it again with another fabulous must-have lip palette collection! The Natural Kiss Collection features four gorgeous warm-toned lip glosses in cream, gloss, and shimmer finishes that compliment all skintones. The colors include a Gold Shimmer gloss and Shell, Totally Nude, and Maple. This is my new go-to palette for that perfect nude lip and I think it will look good on almost everyone.

Dome Euphoric Body Perfume ($34.95)

The DOME Euphoric Body Line is imported from Italy, made of high quality natural ingredients and designed  to tap into your senses and evoke feelings of happiness and pleasure. I like the sexy smell that makes me smile when I use this cream and how it instantly penetrates into your skin. Wanna get your sexy on this Valentine’s Day? Take this body perfume for a spin and see what happens :-)

Tea Thes Des Amants for Valentine’s Day ($44)

The Parisian tea brand Le Palais des Thés is offering a new limited edition tea set this Valentine’s Day, Thé des Amants (Lovers’ Tea), a sensual and spicy elixir made with fruits, flowers, and spices flavored with apple, almond, cinnamon, vanilla and a hint of ginger. The Tea comes cleverly packaged as a his and hers duo: For Her, in a pink and red box, a China green tea version of Thé des Amants which highlights the brightness of the citrus and fruity notes of this blend. For Him, in a dark blue and turquoise box, is the black tea version of Thé des Amants, which showcases depth and spice of this blend. This is a yummy elegant tea and ideal for foodies who appreciate complexity and depth of flavor in their tea.

Meow! by Katy Perry

Meow! is the sister parfum to Katy’s first fragrance, Purr. Purr was created while Katy was on the California Dreams world tour and this scent is Katy’s interpretation of the fun, sensual spirit of the tour (so fun, in fact, Perry felt the name of the fragrance needed an exclamation point at the end of it.) Meow! is a soft sensual scent combining the notes of honeysuckle and pear with the backdrop of creamy vanilla, musk and amber. This is the purrr-fect sexy scent to wear for Valentine’s Day and I just adore the pink kitty bottle, definitely collectible worthy!
