HEY VALENTINE!

Happy Valentine's Day or I guess Singles Awareness Day? Whatever, it's about celebrating love! How about that?


Don't let your Valentines Day be tragic. Let it be:
a)magical
b) a good memory
c) special
d) heartfelt
e) all of the above

Need tips for this great day? The Weekly Blogette has tips for you readers!
Pictures from Ellegirl in their "Date" make-up category. (Of course you don't need a date to make yourself look fabulous, you do that for yourself!)
DO: a smoky eye and a pink or nude lip
combined with a flawless complexion.

PRODUCTS
Eyeliner: Revlon, their eye products are long lasting and will not fade easily
Eyeshadow: Covergirl, the shades/colors are fantastic and will play up your eyes.
Mascara: Maybelline (only the best!), I have a friend who loves her lashes long and thick and I have heard nothing but good things about Maybelline's products
Lipgloss: Nivea, its called "A KISS OF SHINE", this stuff is great I tried it might self. It's not sticky and moisturizes your lips
My Valentine wish is to be able to buy a cute day dress or frock like this one.

HERE ARE SOME IDEAS ON DRESSING UP...

So what can I say about Camilla Belle? She is a unique beauty, style icon and well even her last name means "beautiful" in french! Can't get much better than that!

TREND ALERT:
PRINTS
prints here, prints there, prints, prints EVERYWHERE!
SPRING IS ALL ABOUT COLOR SO DONT BE AFRAID TO POP COLORS A PLENTY IN YOUR ENSEMBLES

Well, before I close, I want to leave you all with a...
LOVE LETTER
Naploeon Bonaparte was known for writing amazing letters to his beloved Josephine
here is one from 1795:
"I wake filled with thoughts of you. Your portrait and the intoxicating evening which we spent yesterday have left my senses in turmoil.

Sweet incomparable Josephine, what a strange effect you have on my heart!
Are you angry?
Do I see you looking sad? Are you worried? ...
My soul aches with sorrow, and there can be no rest for your lover; but is there still more in store for me when, yielding to the profound feelings which overwhelm me, I draw from your lips, from your heart a love which consumes me with fire? Ah! it was last night that I fully realized how false an image of you your portrait gives!
You are leaving at noon; I shall see you in three hours.
Until then, mio dolce amor, a thousand kisses; but give me none in return, for they set my blood on fire."

HOPE YOU ENJOYED READERS
until next week
aurevoir!

I like how one of the beauty tips is "flawless complexion"--who has that???
Prints for spring sounds great--the busier the better.
