This Thursday, I’ll be celebrating my 8th Valentine’s Day in a row as a fabulous single lady. Instead of dwelling on the fact that I don’t have a man in my life, I’m focusing on all the good I do have: a wonderfully supportive family, a great apartment, the ability to do what I love, and of course, my health! It’s also the perfect time to highlight some of my favorite things. Here are my current obsessions.
Clarisonic Mia. My mom gave my sister and I Clarisonics for Christmas and I am totally addicted to mine. I don’t know how I lived without it. I use it almost every day in the shower and have noticed a positive difference in the elasticity of my skin and pore size.
Anthropologie Charcuterie Plate. Melissa gave me this adorable serving plate that looks vintage, but is really new. I love the French-inspired drawings and whimsical blue border. It’s dishwasher safe and the raised sides makes it ideal for serving everything from elegant crostini to refried beans.
Hop Kiln Sparkling Rose of Pinot Noir. If I were to drink one type of alcohol for the rest of my life, I would choose pink champagne. I absolutely love sparkling roses and this blushing bubbly is light, dry, and locally made. Seriously, it’s the best pink champagne I’ve had in awhile. I must get my hands on a couple more bottles; what better time to drink pink bubbles than around Valentine’s Day?
Dolce and Gabbana Caramel lipstick. Julia gave me this lipstick and I was a little weary of its nude color at first, but after layering it on with a little sheer gloss, I realized it’s the perfect neutral lipstick! It’s long-lasting and great for day.
Zara Tan Leather Jacket. Before my sister returned to her home in the Dominican Republic, we hit up the Zara sale together. I walked away with this cute leather jacket which I incorporated into my look quickly and stylishly. In the above photo with my mom and sister, I’m wearing it with a leopard-print top.
