Valentine’s Gift Guide 2018


Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Are you wrecking your brain thinking about what to get your significant other for the occasion? OR, do you want to get a yourself a little treat? I love buying myself presents…because honestly, some self-love is never a bad thing! Whatever the case, I’ve got a roundup of gifts that will get the love going this holiday!




1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

Lingerie: If ever there were a holiday for something sexy, this is it! I love this set that comes in the prettiest shade of “petal” that will look amazing on any skin tone.


Coordinates Stacking ring: A simple gold ring with the coordinates of somewhere meaningful. One of my friends once gave me a location bracelet with the coordinates of our first job (where we met) and it always has a special place in my heart. This gift is both stylish and sentimental!


Body Wash: Ladies love a good beauty product and for me, this all starts with a great shower. This lovely scented (and pretty) body/hand wash from Jo Malone is a great gift to remind her to indulge in life’s little luxuries.


Fragrance: a pretty and floral scent to kick Spring into gear!


Phone Case: Let’s be honest, our phones are with us 24/7! And sometimes a new phone case can feel like a brand new outfit, or even a haircut. This tiny detail can make you feel fresh and special! Well this pick is one of my favorites, customizable and in the cutest colors. This is definitely one I’ll be getting myself if Mr. O doesn’t!

Shave Cream: Just like women, men can really enjoy an elevated grooming experience. This shave cream will have his shaving routine feeling extra luxurious!


Sneakers: How cute and holiday appropriate are these Comme des Garçons sneakers. They have more attitude and style than a regular pair of Converse, yet they aren’t as pricey as the covetable Common Projects. Also, I love that they’re unisex. Both Jason and I have a pair!


Sunglasses: A pair of classic sunglasses that will take an outfit to the next level. Whether added to jeans a t-shirt, or a polished suit, this pair will look good with everything!


Macaroons: Have you ever known a guy to turn down something sweet? And remember what I said about self-love? Get a box for yourself while you’re at it!


Cologne: Jason’s favorite cologne that I love to spritz on as well! It’s a win-win for both of us, and I guarantee your man will love it too!

My Latest Beauty Buys


1. Jo Malone – I’m a huge fan of Jo Malone products, and this one is no exception. I use the hand wash and lotion, found a new Summer fragrance (Basil & Neroli) – but this one in particular is something special. It smells a little dark and sexy, but still fresh, floral and sweet at the same time. It’s not your average rose scent and I definitely recommend giving it a smell!
2. Tom Ford – So Rachel and Alexa actually gifted this to me and I can’t praise this lotion enough. It literally feels like wrapping your hands in silk. Plus, the scent is so intoxicating and potent it’s a fragrance that last which I haven’t found in any other lotion.
3. Amore Pacific – My favorite facial cleanser! It removes makeup flawlessly, helps keep my skin tone even and the scent is the absolute best I’ve ever seen in a facial product. I use the cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and eye cream. It’s just about time to re-up soon!
4. Oribe – This is what I use to keep my locks so long and healthy! While Oribe has many different lines, I used “Gold Lust” which has restorative properties. It keeps my hair strong even though I’m always, drying, straightening, curling, and inflicting all sorts of damage upon it! I also love the way it lathers and smells.
5. Malin & Goetz – While I recently gifted this soap set, I’ve been a fan of Malin & Goetz for quite some time. I’m also really into this bar soap phase right now. Somehow I like the tangible quality of holding the bar in my hand, rather than my usual gel on loofa situation. Malin’s soaps smell divine, and I think this set is the cutest gift idea!
6. Tom Ford – Another recent purchase, Tom Ford’s eyeliner is one where I cant imagine life before it. The pencil sharpens so smoothly and just glides over my eyelids. I also love the colors – I’m really into “midnight” navy versus my everyday black. This is a beauty buy I can’t live without!

Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day Dolls! Today might be all about the love, but I’m also spreading the lust with today’s list of must-have items. It’s a lot of sweet, sexy, and pink…some of my favorite things! I hope you love these lust-worthy picks as much as I do!
1-2. L’Agent Siena Bra & Thong – What’s Valentine’s Day without something a little sexy? I love the delicate blush-colored lace of this set from L’Agent. Wear it for that special someone…or just for yourself! While I love the blush and gold, the navy and black is also super sexy and on sale!
3. MAC Angel Lipstick – I love a classic pink pout. And with Valentine’s Day and Spring right around the corner, now is the perfect time to pickup a new shade. MAC has so many great colors that you’re bound to find the perfect pink for your skin tone. Recently, I’m loving a shocking pink called “All Fired Up,” as well as “faux” a muted, mauve pink.
4. tarte Cheek Stain – Speaking of beauty picks, I recently had brunch with Rachel and she had the most amazing dewy glow on her cheeks. Turns out it was this cheek stain from tarte! So many times a cream blush can look streaky on the skin, but this was the perfect rosy glow that looked natural and neither greasy nor chalky. I’m really dying to try this out for myself! If anyone has used this, let me know in the comments below!
5. Jo Malone Basil & Neroli – As seen on my Instagram, this is my new favorite scent for Spring! The basil smells fresh and botanical, while the Neroli balances it with a bright floral scent. All I can say is it smells like vacation…and that’s just where I’m going with it! But like most Jo Malone scents, this is classic enough to wear everyday to the office. If the basil is throwing you off…trust me, you won’t smell like a pizza, you’ll smell gorgeous! Give it a spray next time you’re walking through your local department store and let me know what you think!
6. Tom Ford Sean Sunglasses – A classic aviator never goes out of style!  This pair by Tom Ford manages to add some glam to the sunglass shape. With a cognac-leather top bar and rose-gold mirrored lenses, it’s a more modern take. Who says you can’t see the world through rose-colored glasses?
7. Alexis Loe Floral-Print Shirt Dress – Last but not least is this flirty little number by Alexis. The satin, the floral print, the balloon sleeves and the sherberty colors are just too gorgeous and sweet. This dress makes me feel like Marie Antoinette would wear this to brunch in New York City with her friends. Wear this to any Spring event, with a strappy sandals and those sunglasses in #6.
