Pretty things : Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day lovlies! Growing up, Valentine’s Day was never that big of a deal because it was my brother’s birthday. So even now I consider it his birthday first. It kind of keeps me out of the cliche Valentine’s blues that singles seem to suffer in rom coms. lol.

However, I’m always a fan of celebrating holidays. Here’s a couple of things I’m loving at the moment:

Nicole by OPI nail apps. How cute are these? I found these before Christmas in a Shoppers Drug Mart bargain shelf. That shelf is my favourite place in the world. Always such good finds! I have heard that nail wraps are hard to work with but these were super easy to put on.  I haven’t tried any others so I don’t know if these are thicker than usual. They do seem thicker than I would have thought. They kind of remind me of reinforcements. The package says they’ll last 1-2 days. They seem really secure though and didn’t seem bothered at all after a hop in the shower.  So far so good!

My cute pink shoes! They are not new but I haven’t worn them in ages. I trotted them out for the Gala last Thursday in an effort to achieve my New Year’s Resolution to wear heels more often. I bought them in Ireland at New Look a few years ago. They still make me very happy. I apologize for the cankles. These were taken at the end of the night.

Of course, what would a Valentine’s Day post be without a love song? I absolutely adore Dusty Springfield. I picked up her greatest hits in Golden, BC of all places and I fell in love. Pick up a Dusty Springfield cd for your car. Her velvet voice makes even a trip to the grocery store romantic. Trust me, you will not regret it.

What are you loving at the moment?

  1. Those shoes are sooo adorable. it is weird how wearing pink or red in Feb makes in seem like you are a valentine. I didn’t think I went overly pink yesterday but people commented on my pink valentine face make-up! Lovely post:)
