Valentine’s Day is next week! For all you late shoppers like me, I thought I would share my gift picks for Valentine’s Day. These gifts would be perfect for every girl, and even for you to get ideas for yourself, (go ahead and let your guy know what ya like)!

I’m a sucker for a great pair of earrings and these are just STUNNING in rose quartz. I also love cute and comfy graphic tees and this ‘Xoxo’ one is perfect. I bought myself one over the weekend that says, ‘Kiss, Kiss.’ It was so hard to choose between both tees, but I knew I had to add it to this gift guide!  I’m addicted to candles. I can never have too many. This limited edition one is a must – these always smell unbelievable!

A few others include the perfect silk-cashmere wrap (great for any woman, any season), this ‘Heart’ catchall, and these sexy pink pumps.

Holiday Beauty Palettes

Laura Geller Beauty ‘Dream Creams‘ Lip Palette | Urban Decay

During this time of year the best gift sets and palettes hit the department stores, and it’s just a no-brainer kind of gift! Every year I give at least one to my sister. It’s also great to get a couple for yourself too. The thing about palettes is that all the color combinations are done for you – the guess-work is gone. Whether you’re looking for neutrals, shades of purple, or smokey tones there’s a palette to help you combine the perfect options. Palettes are great to travel with too! Just pop one or two in your bag and you have endless options while on vacation.

Will you be gifting a makeup palette? Do you have favorite?

frontal necklace | cluster pendant necklace | bib necklace | linear earrings | chandelier earrings | drop earrings | line bracelet

FACT:  My favorite color is Purple ♥. I love any and all shades of purple – I think the color is so regal + looks great on every skin tone! All my purple lovers out there, you’ll love this collection too!

{ I just received this beautiful (Nordstrom Exclusive) Faux Pearl Multi-strand Necklace in hematite/berry + I can’t wait to wear it! (Unfortunately, it’s no longer available since I purchased it on sale). This necklace made me want to search for more purple pieces from the line. }

I’m so happy I saw this Givenchy purple/hematite collection at Nordstrom. I own several pieces of jewelry from the Givenchy line + I love them! My fashion pieces look great + are made extremely well. My first purchase of Givenchy was a pair of stud earrings. I still have them, and they still look like new! I’ve never had a problem with tarnish, or losing stones – ever. This is why I love Givenchy jewelry. No matter the style/color you choose the pieces are beautiful and you’ll enjoy them + get compliments when you wear them! This purple collection is great for the season and going forward. And if purple isn’t your color, these styles come in other color ways too, which are also stunning. And think gifts » if you still need to cross some women off your list (mom, sister, bestie, colleague…) any girl would be happy to receive one of these pieces!
