What better way to jump into February than with a classic Valentine's Day post? For those of ya who aren't so much of a fan of the heart-themed holiday, I'll warn you now — get on board. I've got lots of fun holiday-inspired content planned for the upcoming week, and I absolutely can't wait to share.
I won't go too much into my Valentine's Day motto here (though I'll cover it soon, promise), but please remember, as cliche as it sounds, it's a day to treat yo' self! It doesn't matter if you don't have an S.O. to buy you flowers & chocolate. It's 2017, and I say buy 'em for your damn self — boyfriend or no boyfriend (because multiple boxes of chocolate never hurt a fly, right?).
Seriously though ladies, these items are at the top of my lust list right now. They're pretty, pampering, and just a bit scandalous. What's not to love?
Here's a breakdown of my fave V-Day bits, which I totally encourage you to shop yourself. Or, if you're like me, you can just forward the link of this post to your someone special (kidding!...kind of.)
P.S. Don't forget to stay tuned for more Valentine's posts in the next few days!
And do tell, which gift above/below would you most want to receive on Tuesday?
Faux fur is kind of everything right now, no? I'm obsessed with the fuzziness of this throw, which would be the perfect companion for cuddling up with that someone special OR a pint of Ben & Jerry's.
Since R. will be in Pittsburgh this V-Day (*unhappy*), it'll be Phish Food for me.
I always see photos of bloggers, celebrities, etc. rocking this notorious Calvin Klein duo, and yet I can never bring myself to indulge. So, can someone just pull the trigger for me? HA. I really do love anything Calvin Klein though, and this set would make for a super tasteful gift (even if it's from yo' self, to yo' self).
Moon Juice's magical botanical blends have made a few of my gift guides recently, mainly because I have been seeing them everywhere. They look like fun to try and certainly make the cut for a good Insta pic.
What's better than gummy bears? Champagne gummy bears.
It's a long standing joke between my roommates and I that none of us can enter T.J. Maxx and leave without buying a new candle. Strange? Maybe. An addiction? Surely. Regardless, I love this minimalistic rose-scented candle, which is totally at the top of any candle-lover's wish list.
Can you really go wrong with a white & gold mug? Easy. You can't.
Wanna get spicy? This black, lacy gift set is just the thing.
These sugar lemon bath cubes are made with real brown sugar and nourishing oils, which are perfect for an evening of pampering. Also, if you've tried anything from Fresh, you know that it's totally worth the splurge.
It's not every day that a girl purchases a new designer fragrance, but why not today? I also love the soft color, which is perfect for Valentine's Day!
Face masks are always a good way to treat oneself, and this oil-free formula looks like the perfect overnight skin fix.
There's something about the simplicity of this bangle that I just love. It's perfect for wearing on it's own or stacking to create a real statement.
This lip treatment has been making appearances on my gift guides since I first started TBC over two years ago — and for good reason. It moisturizes like your favorite balm, but wears like your go-to lip color. Love.
Is receiving Philosophy gift sets fun or everyone, or just me? This 'Grace' collection is the real MVP though, because it smells chic and sophisticated, unlike some of their other sweeter, fruity scents!
Good things come in small packages, right? And these budget friendly designer earrings are the perfect example.

Though I'm more of a lipstick kind of girl, is this shadow amazing or what? It's the perfect smoky color AND goes on as a cream for easy AF application.
Of course the last item on this gift guide just had to be chocolates in a heart-shaped box. If you want to go the traditional route and scream Valentine's Day, all the power to ya. Plus, I feel like you can't go wrong with this one. Who would complain about a box of chocolates?
