Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to do something a little different, to go the extra mile, to put in a bit of effort — for your partner and for yourself. Remember when you first started dating: the excitement, the surprises? You would both spend time primping and prepping before a date to be sure you were looking good, smelling sweet, and feeling great! Recapture some of that magic by treating this February 14th like you did when you first got together…
Try a New Scent
Our sense of smell is incredibly powerful, evoking positive emotions and fond memories. New fragrances are also an easy way to introduce novelty into long-term relationships. You could try Argan Dry Oil Body Mist in Sweet Orange by Pre de Provence, a Cedar Leaf & Lavender candle by Nest, or a Gardneia Diffuser by Illume, all of which we carry.
Soften Up Your Skin
The winter cold and the march of time can wreak havoc on your skin. Reveal a more youthful glow with a moisturizing body treatment or a rejuvenating facial. Our Tone & Glow package, with the power of guava fruit and vitamin C, is an all-over solution that will leave your face and body feeling and looking years younger.
Update Your Makeup Bag
If you’ve been wearing the same lip color for the past decade, it’s time to try something new and fresh, like “Candied Rose” or “Pink Lady” — both are Puregloss lip glosses by Jane Iredale, available in our boutique. Or brighten up your cheeks and give them some definition with her new Contour Kits.
Add a Little Sparkle
New dangly earrings can bring out the twinkle in your eyes. A new bangle can dress up an outfit. A few decorative pieces can make the ordinary a little more extraordinary. And anything like this can make a lovely gift. “Jewelry,” says Julie Vos, the designer we carry in our boutique, “is the most romantic thing you could set out to create.”
Wishing you and yours the happiest of Valentine’s Days!
