What To Treat Yourself To This Valentine’s Day


Although I’m no real lover of the OTT nature of Valentine’s Day, and will most likely be spending the 14th of Feb just enjoying some good old fashioned calorie-laden food in a restaurant with my boyfriend, I do quite like the idea of treating oneself to some exuberantly priced beauty products in celebration of it!

There’s nothing quite as uplifting on a cold winter’s night than a flickering candle, is there? If you appreciate more sophisticated scents; don’t like overtly sweet scents, and haven’t tried this candle or Diptyque candles in general before, I think you’ll love Diptyque’s Figuier candle! If you’re interested in further, more in-depth thoughts on this candle, you can read my review of it here.

I’ve spoken a lot about this Clarins contouring palette in recent weeks, but I really do adore it. It’s the most perfect, convenient palette for those who love the natural makeup look and would make for a beautiful addition to your makeup bag this spring.

If you really feel like pushing the boat out and being a bit lavish with your spending, I’d highly recommend Tom Ford’s nude dip palette. If your budget allows for it, this really is such a beautiful palette; the formula is incredibly smooth and are, by far, the easiest shadows to blend that I’ve tried thus far.

Charlotte Tilbury is understandably a highly covetable brand, but out of all of her products, I really love the matte revolution lipsticks; particularly bond girl. It’s a very grown up, brown-based nude with a rosy undertone.

And lastly, if you’re an avid blush wearer like myself, Hourglass’ dim infusion blush is a gorgeous powder blush and one that I’m sure almost anyone could get along with. It’s the most beautiful peachy pink blush with a subtle shimmer running throughout it.
