With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I wanted to share some of my favorite ideas for how to celebrate yourself and your loved ones this year. While the focus of the day can appear to be only for those in a relationship, I believe Valentine’s Day can also be a day to show ourselves some love. I encourage you, regardless of your relationship status, to dedicate time to giving yourself some well-deserved self-care. Whether that is a day of pampering, catching up on a binge-worthy show, reading a few extra pages of a book, or making a meal at home, I hope you have an extra special Valentine’s Day this year. Need some inspiration for how to celebrate? Below I’ve listed some items and experiences that would be perfect for however or whomever you will be celebrating the day with.
CELEBRATING AT HOME
Turn your bathroom into your dream spa with Brooklinen’s best selling Super Plush Towels. These towels are the most comfortable towels because of the extra thick 100% Turkish Cotton which creates a spa-like feel at home. I can’t recommend them enough for giving your bathroom a luxury upgrade without the high price tag. Treat yourself to the ultimate form of self care with the Move-In Bundle that comes with bath towels, hand towels, wash cloths and a bath mat, then have your favorite skincare products lined up and voila, your pampering session begins!
UPGRADE YOUR BATHROOM
Bring the spa to you and pamper yourself at home with Estee Lauder’s Revitalizing Supreme + Youth Power Creme. This product is truly amazing- it helps your skin feel firmer and look more lifted with it's Hibiscus Morning Bloom extract- a highly bioactive plant extract with extreme collagen power. Not only that but when I use this my skin looks so much more radiant and hydrated which is exactly what I need as the weather is much cooler in LA these days!
NOURISH YOUR SKIN
Stay in and enjoy a wine and cheese night with your partner or galentine!

I’ve had friends tell me about how fun their classes are, while offering the ability to learn something new and taste a variety of cheeses from the comfort of your home!

I’ve been missing a New York bagel so much since moving to LA so I’m dying to try Goldbelly so I can get my hands on one without having to fly across the country!

This is definitely a great way to share a treasured meal with your loved ones!
