My Valentine’s Day Wishlist

For a terminally single girl like me, Valentine’s Day is filled with “wishing and hoping and praying” and cursing and jealousy. It’s bad enough to see couples throughout the regular holiday but Valentine’s Day is like love on steroids. Wherever you go, it’s red hearts and couples kissing and snuggling everywhere. To commemorate this day, I usually wear black and dream of all the things I could have possibly received from my imaginary boyfriend/husband. I even search online for possible gifts (not that the countless emails and store windows can be missed). Every year I come up with a few “I want” gifts – so for all you “in love” couples out there (OK, I’m really talking to the guys) here are a few things this single girl would wish to get from a boy

Borghese Classic Romance

The perfume, named Il Bacio is Italian for The Kiss, how much more romantic can you get and you get all these extra goodies with it. I love that the lipstick matches the lipgloss and train case – kinda like matching your lipstick to your car. She will think you spent way more than you actually did because this entire set is only $39.99

Top Notes: A glorious floral with delicate Freesia, Honeysuckle, Jasmine, Lily-of-the Valley and Rose.
Middle Notes: Multi-faceted fruity florals of Melon, Peach, Plum and Passion Fruit.
Bottom Notes: Sensually warm as the Tuscan sun Musk, Amber, Sandalwood and Cedarwood.

Godiva Strawberry Rose Candle

Anyone can just give chocolates but imagine toping off those delicious Godiva chocolates with an equally yummy smelling candle. It’s amazing how it smells exactly like Godiva chocolates. I was introduced to this line at the NYIGF and I immediately fell in love with these candles (I think I stayed there for 10 minutes just smelling candle after candle). The best part, your home will continuously smell like chocolate for 50 hours and it’s a steal for $23.00 – $25.00 (depending on where you buy it). Godiva Candles can be purchased at several locations such as Neiman Marcus, Bath & Body Works, but if you go to Candle Delirium you can get 20% off the Strawberry Rose candle – Use code: VALENTINE4U

Joya Reserve Candle & Body Set

If for some reason, your love is anti-chocolate but you still want to gift her with a candle, then try Joya’s Reserve Candle, Body/Bath Wash and Body Creme. I revisted Joya at the NYIGF and got a chance to experience Caprice de la Mode. Choose from any of the following scents –

Royal Hunt Bouquet: refreshing orange blossom, petitgrain sur fleurs, and siam citron {original bouquet ingredients: esprit de rose triple, neroli, acacia, fleur d’orange, musk, orris, tonquin, otto of citron}

The Alhambra Perfume: damask rose, geranium and cassis brightened by wild mint {original bouquet inredients: extract of tubereuse, geranium, acacia, fleur d’orange, civet}

Caprice de la Mode (SHOWN ABOVE): an elegant, balanced blend of juniper twig, lavender, tonka bean and cardamon. {original bouquet ingredients: extrait de jasmine, tubereuse, cassie, fleur d’orange, civet, otto of almonds, nutmegs}

St. Valentine Perfume

Top notes: Bergamot, Nutmeg, Parma Violet
Middle notes: Bulgarian Rose Absolute, Centifolia Rose Absolute, Raspberry, Tea Rose
Base notes: Amber, Bourbon Vanilla, Dark Chocolate, French Vanilla, Vanilla Absolute

I haven’t tried this one yet but any fragrance that has a base of Chocolate, Vanilla and Bourbon sounds like a great thing to have. Another great thing is you have a choice of how you want to experience this fragrance, you have your pick of a purse spray, roller ball, massage oil, liquid powder, body wash, bubble bath and the list goes on. This lovely fragrance just became available on Feb. 1st, perfect timing I say.

Freya Inimates

I received this Freya Madison Camisole Set at Product-n-Press Live for the Christmas holiday but I think it’s perfect for Valentine’s day. I’ve mentioned a million times how much I love pink and this delicate peachy pink has such a romantic look and feel to it. I must say that I feel very much like a girl in this set – simply lovely

So there you have it, my Valentine’s Day wishlist, maybe next year I will be so lucky to receive the rest of the above listed products (a nice hint to my future love – until then, I can only dream). What’s your Valentine’s Day wishlist?
