4 Gifts To Buy Yourself On Valentine's Day



Whether I've been in love, "in like" or totally unattached, I've always loved Valentine's Day. I love heart-shaped things, I love seeing pink valentinestock.jpgsprinkly cupcakes and donuts at the Publix bakery, I love cupids and lace. Commercial or not, I just love the idea of a day being dedicated to love.

Yesterday, I got a Valentine in the mail from my mother, with a check and a card telling me to buy something nice for ME. I could put it toward the brakes on my car, which are making a scary noise right now, and I've been meaning to buy some more special diet cat food for my allergy-prone cat. But I've decided to honor my mother's wishes and buy a nice romantic present for myself today.

So what shall it be? Here are a four love-themed pretties I'm eying:

Too Faced Romantic Eye Classic Beauty Shadow Collection ($36) from Sephora. These people make great shadows that blend perfectly and stay put all day. I got the Natural Eye Neutral version of this palette a couple years ago and love it. They come with little cards that show you how to do three different looks.


Turquoise and diamond ring ($1,200) from Anthropologie. Hahahaha, just kidding. My mom's check wasn't for THAT much. But I do love the idea of buying myself something nice like this one day. I don't need to wait on no stinkin' man to buy me exquisite jewelry. Turquoise is my favorite, and diamonds are my birthstone.


Bright Buds Fit N Flare Dress ($278) by Betsey Johnson. I have no idea what I'd wear this to, but it's cute and fun and I want it in my closet.


Wraparound feather pendant necklace (on sale for $39.99) by Noir Jewelry at Kinda cool.



Anyone else treating themselves this Valentine's Day?
