Be My Valentine at This February 14th

First thing when I wake up, wait a bit, I need to do a special makeup.

I used the GEN NUDE Eyeshadow Palette from the NEW bareMinerals Beauty of Nature Collection, as well as their GEN NUDE mineral-rich long-wearing blush for my Valentine’s Day makeup!

A sweet nice breakfast is necessary for a sweet day. I have the home-made banana muffin with Tahini for the dip, also adding some fruits with coconut whipped cream. This tahini is one of my favorite thing I can add to everything – for salad, pastries, or even my sandwiches. It is the Mighty Sesame Tahini Dressings in squeezable bottles.

Adding a Beetology drink is also a good idea to boost your nutrition and energy!

I wear a warm long knit dress with a red bag for this special day! Being pretty, as the same time keeping warm, this is how smart we are! Lucy Paris has a lot of stylish fashion choices for you for any your special event. The cute red bag is from Urban Originals, I like it because it is very comfortable to wear, also you can have all your needs in this small-look bag no problem.

A morning walk along the cove, I love the breathe and sunshine!

For lunch, I prepare this wild Alaskan salmon at home, with my cat as my date, why not? I enjoy his company.

Sitka Salmon Shares delivers premium, sustainable, wild Alaskan seafood from the fishermen directly to members’ doorsteps! Sitka Salmon Shares is built around a humble collective of committed fishermen that put quality first, handling fish one at a time, with respect and care. It’s their livelihood, afterall, and many of their fishermen have been using these highly selective, small-batch fishing methods for generations. Read on to know your fishermen—from how they got started, why they love life on the open water and why they are part of Sitka Salmon Shares. They also have a lot of recipes on their website!

Valentine’s Day afternoon, I would love to share my time with my bestie – Galentine at Valentine’s Day. I love this double happiness. We went to SOMI SOMI, a super cute yummy tayaki & soft serve ice cream store. What I wear is from Brooklyn Cloth, which is a leader in on-trend apparel that enables their customers to express individuality. They pull inspiration from across the globe, and in their backyard of New York City, to develop their bold collections. Brooklyn Cloth stands out for its unique fabrics, eye-catching graphics, and must-have silhouettes. They observe trends that define today’s market to bring fresh, expressive collections to the table.

Valentine’s celebration is always to be official at night. I chose to have cakes with Ryan at one of my favorite dessert spots in San Diego – Extraordinary Desserts.

See these beautiful cakes, I just can’t help myself to draw them on my paper!

There is always something else sweet waiting for me at Valentine’s Day! It is MarieBelle’s signature Ganache chocolate, which comes from New York’s famous Soho District. It is the world-renowned, luxurious bean-to-bar chocolate company, MarieBelle Chocolates.

Before sleep, I need to be relax, because I want to have a sweet dream to end this beautiful day. A hot bath helps. Don’t forget to drop a cute bath bomb into the bathtub. This beautiful crystal bath bomb is from Village Naturals Aromatherapy‘s bath and body collection.

I can say it is a full successful Valentine’s Day for me. And now I need to say good night!
