My Valentine’s Day Wish List – Part 1

Yes I am single (and usually wear black to curse this day) but that doesn’t mean I can’t hope and dream about what I would want my love (whoever he is) to bestow upon me on this day of love. I promise I won’t go overboard and feature any engagement rings (unless I happen to meet, fall in love and have a world-wind romance with a sane, employed handsome man in the next 21/2 weeks – not holding my breath on that one). Anyway, I have a list of some sensual things I’m daydreaming of getting:

 

These darling little lip protectors have more than meets the eye – DeVine Lip Shimmers takes benefits of wine grapes such as Polyphenols, which are known to fight free radicals and help prevent cell damage; Resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant derived from red wine and Grape Seed Oil that helps skin combat free radicals which can cause cellular damage and lead to aging. Grape Seed Oil serves as a wonderful moisturizer and truly nourishes the skin. It also has a high content of Linoleic Acid, a fatty acid essential for cell membranes and skin health.So what you end up with is younger looking lips that will naturally lead to unlimited kisses. Devine Lip Shimmers comes in Merlot and Rose with other wine flavors coming soon. A two pack retails for $4.99.

Sara Happ Red Velvet Lip Scrub (Ltd Edition)

Before I even begin, let me tell you all that this yummy (it’s edible, yes I have eaten a little of it and yes it tastes really good) limited edition Red Velvet Lip Scrub from Sara Happ will not be available for much longer. This decadent lip scrub was created only for the 2010 holiday season, so once it’s gone, it’s gone! Sara Happ is known as the queen of the lip scrub. Her original lip scrub, Vanilla Bean has sold multiple times over and has become a staple in any beauty lover’s makeup bag. So this Red Velvet lip scrub will definitely make your lip extra kissable. The Red Velvet Lip Scrub is infused with deep, buttery chocolate notes and a sweet hint of vanilla cream cheese frosting, a 30ml container retails online at at The Plaza Beauty for $24.00. I strongly suggest you buy more than one.

Pratima Love Oil

This sweet and spicy nurturing body oil is why body massages were invented. Made from organic essences of Cinnamon, Clove and Cardamom, these three ingredients combine to create the warm, nurturing feeling of being cared for while nourishing Sweet Almond Oil works with Lavender, Rose and Vanilla to hydrate, soothe and deeply soften the skin. A 120ml bottle of the sensual Pratima Love Oil is a mere $24.00 – imagine the hours of fun you can have. This oil will surely turn any day into Valentine’s Day.

NEW Completely Bare limited edition bikini wax kit with BONUS Vajewel

Granted the above item may seem to be more for him but I’ll say the end result will make BOTH parties very happy. Completely Bare, the master of waxing (thank you Cindy Barshop) introduces this new limited edition wax kit. The kit provides everything you need for Completely Bare‘s signature ouchless waxing. You can surprise the man in your life with anything from a simple bikini wax to a sexy Brazilian (and really make it a very happy Valentine’s day). To top it off, decorate your candy with a Swarovski Crystal Bow (you know how guys love shiny things – lol). The kit which retails for $50.00 and includes the following:

• step-by-step instructions for the ultimate, easy at home bikini wax
• qr code to take you to an instructional video
• bubblegum pink ouchless strip wax™ for your bikini
• bubblegum purple ouchless stripless wax™ for a smooth brazilian
• no mess mats to catch fumbles
• spatulas for easy wax on application
• disposable wax strips to wax off
• completely prepped™ towelettes to get completely clean before you begin
• completely off™ towelettes to remove any residual wax
• rear-view-mirror to see what you’re doing
• BONUS Vajewel™ in the shape of a bow, made exclusively with real Swarovski Elements to add some Valentine’s flair

 Okay, my list seems to be a bit longer than I initially thought (I guess there’s a lot I want from my imaginary boyfriend). Because of this, I leave you with these four must have-need-want Valentine’s Day wish-list for now. I will feature my other fantasy gifts in another post. Hopefully you later attached ladies out there will be receiving some (or all if you’re really lucky)of these amazing gifts.

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?
