No, it’s not completely coincidental that this blog post comes about a week before Valentine’s Day. Personally, I find Valentine’s Day to be super corny…same with New Year’s resolutions. But we can’t deny that the start of the New Year sparks SOMETHING! We are inspired to begin again, unlock new discoveries, reignite our goals, etc. So, in that same vein, if January is your spark to start anew, February is your call-to-action to think about your Love List — The things you reach for to love yourself, give love to others, receive love from others, and just be a beacon of light and love to this crazy, tired ass world in which we exist!
Having said that, here is my 2020 Love List…a handful of treasures to spark love this February and beyond!
Patty Lou A LOVE THANG Gift Set
Whether we realize it or not — we’re always manifesting. Manifesting is basically the act of thinking about something so much that you begin to (consciously or unconsciously) take steps to make those things happen. Have you ever tried to manifest more love in your life? And this doesn’t have to revolve around romantic love — it can be more love for self or more love to the world (because – what the world needs now, is love sweet love). The Patty Lou A Love Thang Gift Set includes everything you need to welcome love into your life: LOVE VIBE Crystal Manifestation Candle contains crystal infused with Reiki energy and a love affirmation under the lid to help you attract the love of friends, the love of family, romantic love and self-love. The kit also contains a PALO SANTO Smudge Stick, and a ROSE QUARTZ Crystal to help dissolve emotional wounds, release fears and welcome a divine energy of love. Sounds hokey? Aye, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.
Oscar De La Renta Bella Essence
Sweet and floral, Bella Essence is the â€˜timeless story of a woman falling in love’. My nose tends to lean toward richer notes…thankfully the dry down on Bella Essence offers a nice a blanketing of musk. I’m not usually a super feminine fragrance kind of girl, but I’m a sucker for a good love story. So, this year I’m opening myself up to the possibility of scents outside of my usual comfort zone of earthy tendencies.
Do you prefer Pink or Red for Valentine’s Day? Why not do a little bit of both, by creating a smoldering pink eye and cheek combo using Danessa Myricks Colorfix in “Valentineâ€ & “Plum Wineâ€. This limited edition collection is perfect for your Love List and beyond. The entire kit (offered at a $30 savings) works for eyes, lips and cheeks, so you’ll get lots of use well past Valentine’s Day.
BAWDY Butt Sheet Masks
Backside beauty is a thing, and I’m here for it. Listen, your backside needs love too. So, when BAWDY Butt Sheet Masks came across my desk, I was immediately game! Formulated to firm, tone, detoxify and rejuvenate the booty, each mask comes with two butt sheets, one for each cheekâ€”duh! Turn your nose up at this one if you want, but I’m sort of feeling like I’ll take whatever special targeted treatment I can afford. The intro GALAXY KIT Butt Sheet Mask Kit ($34) includes BITE IT hydrating + toning, SHAKE IT firming + illuminating, SLAP IT retexturing + detoxifying, SQUEEZE IT brightening + rejuvenating. If I were you, I’d give these a try NOW. Don’t let summer roll around and say I didn’t tell you!
