gold heart barrette

 

Gold Heart Barrette

 

New to my website, I've added these cute, affordable heart barrettes. I have very thick hair (the kind that breaks ponytail holders on the regular) and this fits in my hair and stays.  I like to wear it in a half up, half down hairstyle. But would also be cute, with a side part and on the side in front.

My Marlan scarf is a great way to add a little pop of red to any ensemble! Work appropriate with a little bit of preppy flair to take any look from blah to polished.

Love this neutral take on a heart print. It looks like an animal print but it's actually hearts!

 

red and pink valentines day nails

 

I love me some nail art but no matter how hard I try, I can't get my nails to grow that long. I"m just too active with my hands to have long nails. I used to be a nail biter as a child and old habits die hard, with biting being replaced with peeling my nail polish off when it chips. One of the worst things to do to your nails and yet I still do it.  Attempts at regular applications of cuticle oil and taking collagen in my daily coffee does little to offset the damage. My nails are just weak and soft. So, despite my best efforts, short nails are the way for me. I like how the graphic design is simple to diy and is chic and minimal.  For more valentine's nailspo, check out my Pinterest board for all things Valentines.

An easy and festive Valentines drink is to drop some raspberries in champagne flutes and if you are feeling extra, add a dash of Chambord liquor for a Kir Royale.

 

pepperoni heart pizza valentines

 

I love me some pizza and pepperoni just might be my fave. Love the high - low contrast of serving champagne with pizza - made valentines day appropriate in a heart shape for the dough and the pepperonis!

 

copper fondue pot valentines day 

 

Fondue Pot by Boska  

 

What we usually do for Valentines Day is have cheese fondue. It's so easy to do and so decadent. Our son who can be an incredibly picky eater has even taken to it recently. Our tried and true Bodum pot recently broke after 15 yrs so it might be time to upgrade to this chic copper version from Boska. Our favorite accoutrements are sliced mushrooms, red peppers, granny smith apples, cherry tomatoes and of course baguette!
