We all know what's just around the corner. We've known since the week after Christmas, when all the stores began to display red, pink and white items and copious amounts of chocolate in their seasonal section: it's Valentine's Day!

This day had always been special to me, but also bittersweet because it's my birthday which means friends and family are busy that day and also because my fiancĂ© has always worked in restaurants which means he almost always has to work this day. But aside from my #Valentinebabyproblems I have always loved this holiday (even more so since the introduction of Family Day, which means this year I get a long weekend!)

I want to share with you some ideas to get you ready for Valentine's Day, to look hot, feel good and have fun. The top gift category for most women is jewelry and I was recently introduced to two new (to me) brands: ALEX AND ANI who have beautiful, stackable mix-and-matchable charm bracelets and bangles. They have their own website but I was happy to see that they also sell them at Hudson's Bay! My favs are the America the Beautiful Coll Gold Plated No Stone Bangle and the Luxe Amethyst Beaded Bangle.


The other brand is Hillberg & Berk, they have a wide range of jewelry including necklaces, earrings and bracelets crafted using a variety of stones, pearls and crystals. I also like that they have a foundation dedicated to supporting and empowering women across the world. Its difficult to choose favs because there's so many but I would have to say the Je T'aime Collection (earrings, bracelet and necklace) are perfect for #VDay (I'm such a sucker for hearts).

What I've been looking for lately, is a manicure without the gross chemicals that are in the majority of polishes I own, I'm excited to try this new one for #VDay by LACC (La Couleur Couture, available at most Shoppers Drug Marts) they promise "fun and fashionable colors, with couture-quality staying power." Their nail polishes are formulated vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, toxic-free and five-free". (Citation: http://www.laccbeauty.com/new-blog) I'll do a review on them once I've tried!

If you're a die-hard LuluLemon fan (as most of us lounge-wear loving, gym-going, comfort-seekering yogis are) you need to check out Titika Active Couture (Alert, this is a .ca Canadian website, which I'm always a fan of!) They have active-wear that is just downright sexy and I plan to place an order from them ASAP! They offer free shipping on all orders over $75 and with the selection, it wouldn't be difficult to reach this amount in your cart. :) I love the E-Cozy Sweater B in Dark Purple, the Romanesque Leggings in Black and the Inferno Sports Bra in Red.

Then there's the question of what to wear, here's a few of my picks from the new GUESS Collection:

Valentine's Day is not just about gifts, it's about looking good, feeling good and enjoying a good meal with your loved one or group of friends if you're not attached :)  I hope you enjoyed my picks for looking hot and feeling good this #VDay and beyond!
