  • Gifts for Both of You

    Treat your Valentine to something that you can both enjoy, a gift for your love and yourself. Lingerie is the obvious answer. Another creative way is a bubble bath - it is relaxing, unique, and totally seductive. Coming from a huge bath junkie, I’d have to personally recommend LUSH’s “Sex Bomb” bath bomb. Pop one of these babies in your tub for pink water packed with jasmine – delightful!

  • Books and Bookshelves

    Nothing makes for a relaxing weekend like curling up in an oversized armchair with your favorite new read. Sure, nights out with your girls are alright (okay, they’re really fun), but trading in your party shoes for some quality time with your favorite author can be just the thing you need this weekend. If you’re feeling antsy with too much down time, start a project at home like re-organizing your bookshelves. It’s easy to get started on and, surprisingly, can give your living space the mini face-lift it needs.
