Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and nothing can really top last year’s… when I got engaged on the Brooklyn Bridge Park. It was freezing but it couldn’t be more perfect! Being married almost a year now, I have learned how to say I love you without saying it. Spice up your life with traditional and nouveau ways to show your partner they are special!
1. The Naked Heart by CARR Candle
Scent is closely tied to memory and you can perfectly embed yourself into your lover’s subconscious by buying him a candle. A memorable one, not one from the supermarket for air freshening! I love candles but my husband LOVES candles and has introduced me to brands like Red Flower, Tocca and Diptyque. With premium candles, you only have to burn them for 20 mins and the scent lingers in your house for the entire day. Your favorite scents also come in minis so you can… travel with them! And make any hotel room smell just like home. A great candle will have a medium cotton wick that does not burn high or fast. It also does not leave a ton of smoke when you snuff it out. A beautiful candle will change your whole room, apartment, relationship and taste level.
2. Piper-Heidsieck Rosé Sauvage
In 1785, legend has it that, Florens-Louis Heidsieck was invited to personally present a bottle of one of his champagnes to Queen Marie Antoinette. In 1960, Marilyn Monroe famously declared that she went to bed each night with a drop of perfume and woke up each morning with a glass of Piper-Heidsieck. Today, the champagne’s character remains worthy of a queen, and, with its eye-catching pink label and unique box, is perfect for Valentine’s Day 2014. Specially packaged for Valentine’s Day in a lenticular-printed box featuring cascading rose petals, just like a bouquet of roses, the Champagne’s notes of black cherry, black currant, pink grapefruit and blood orange are offset by a lingering, spice-tinged finish. Nothing says celebration the way Champagne does! Don’t save the good stuff for an apology or after a screw up. Celebrate that fact you found each out. I will definitely break out our wedding crystal champagne flutes for this!
Communication is key! So many times, calls get dropped, reception is bad, battery dies and camera memory is full. It sucks and since my hubby and I are both overdue for a new phone, our iPhone 4’s are just not cutting it anymore. I recently got to test out the iPhone 5C from Verizon and love it. The speed of download, responsively, the longer screen, the lighter phone – all contribute to better communication, better mood and of course more talk time. The Verizon 5C is colorful and fun and an easy present for Valentine’s Day.
