Of Love And Other Things

Of Love And Other Things

I have a confession. Most people think Valentine’s is a silly marketing ploy, but I actually love it! Yup, I’m that cliché romantic who gets excited about flowers, chocolates, and candlelight dinners.

Whether you are cheesy like me, a cynic, or somewhere in between - Valentine’s is a fun excuse to primp and pamper yourself. Here are some ideas to get you ready for the love month…

  Pull off the Aroza Midi Skirt with confidence, by making sure your gams have got their game on. Start off with a combo of GVC’s Body Salt Scrub to exfoliate, followed by their Anti Aging Body Lotion to make sure the new skin is moisturized well. After hours in heels to accentuate this skirt, use  Phina’s Relief Remedy Massage Oil or the Mustela Light Legs Gel to soothe those overworked calves. This regimen will improve skin tone and help prevent unsightly varicose veins.

 A romantic piece like the Walhala Polka Dress calls for some sexy and subtle prep. Treat yourself to a decadent bath with the yummy shower gels of Phina’s Little Factory. There’s Salted Caramel, Dream, Papaya Milkshake, and Love (which is apropos). Then spray your choice of CBeauty Oil onto damp skin for extra soft & glowy skin. For those with a tan from the holidays, this is a great way to show it off.

Don’t forget to use Snoe’s Underarm Forces to avoid any humidity mishaps. Finish off with a spritz of Audrey by Soleil et Lune. Audrey depicts a woman who is “the tenderness of early spring that is tinged with a new voluptuous sensuality”.

Show off the stunning Eula Classic Gown with your hair down and in fighting form. Start off with your personal selection of GVC’s Heathly & Heavenly Shampoo and Helpful & Delightful Conditioner. For hair that needs extra loving, use Snoe’s Intense Argan Treatment Conditoner as a hair mask. You may also use this for after the festivities to get your hair back in tiptop shape.

For sexy tousled locks spritz on some Beachborn Sea Salt Spray. Just flip your hair over, spray on roots, then flip back. Instant va-voom volume… Make sure to also bring along the new Tangle Angel Compact Brush for quick touch ups and a glam accessory.



A top with a high neckline like the Whale Flowers Bodysuit, calls for a flawless complexion. Start your prep with GlamGlow’s Flash Mud that is a power packed brightening treatment for an instant facial boost. Follow this up with the Condition Face Serum of Phina. The main ingredients of Frankincense and Argan will seal in moisture and tighten pores. To get the best benefits, use the new Rose Quartz Face Roller to massage in the serum fully. Rose Quartz is called the “ice of the gods” and the gem’s healing powers will help even out facial contours.

For the big date night, treat yourself to a natural makeup look with Pixi’s Hello Glow Kit and Vitamin Wake Up Mist. They are all you need to highlight a fresh face (especially if you followed the steps above). Top it off with a sexy pout courtesy of the Zenutrients Strawberry Lip Butter or Ofra's Mina Liquid Lipstick.


While you’re at it – don’t forget to pick up a few things for your man. Our new men’s grooming line called BAD LAB is perfect for the no fuss guy’s guy. Get him the Lean, Mean Machine Sculpting Shower Gel – sorry no miraculous abs but it is the perfect after gym cleanser. Tame his locks and make him feel like an alpha (even if we know women still rule, haha) with the Like a Boss Hair Clay. Then don’t forget to have him spray on the Call To Arms Deo Fragrance for those close encounters.

Well, now I’M READY for some love…and other things. How about you?
