Valentine's Day: A Celebration of Love (and Chocolates)

HELLO! I took a bit of a hiatus -- it has been a bit crazy around here. But guys I'm back and let's celebrate the month of February with a bit of Valentines!

I'm a lover of holidays. Breaking from the ordinary day-to-day life to put on a bit of festivities, even if only for a couple minutes is worth it for me. In celebration of the holiday of love, I passed some valentines out at work, a la Elementary school and painted my nails for a little reminder of self-love each day of the past week.

Nail color: OPI's "Color so Hot it Berns" and NCLA's Nail Wraps in "Peppermint Lane" (Yep, from Christmas).

Every one of my co-workers got a valentine and my direct reports got valentine presents as well. I get mocked, well, yeah, mocked for my enjoyment of One Direction's musical stylizing's. (C'mon, those Brits are beautiful too.) So, I played it up. My coworkers got a 1D valentine plus two, yep, TWO mystery Fun Dip packets. Oh yeah, if that doesn't say party I don't know what does. [Side note: The box came with a signed poster. Naturally, this poster is now on my fridge.]

In each of  the tall tins, I placed the candy hearts with Gum, Starburst and Skittles inside to give it some height. I put coordinating tissue paper that I filled with a few nic-nac-y type items, such as Tic-Tacs, Ghirardelli chocolates, a set of pens and a party necklace. Obviously, you can fill these with any items for any holiday. For me, it is always about the presentation. :)

I worked Valentine's evening but in the morning I did watch "I Hate Valentine's Day," which is a rom-com directed by, written by and starring Nia Vardalos and John Corbett aka the stars of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding." It is a clever and smart movie about a woman who owns and runs her own flower shop. It follows her relationship rules and the one time she may break them because she may have officially fallen for the man of her dreams. See? Very rom-com, predictable film but, man, I do enjoy it.  Here's the trailer:

I hope you all had a great Valentine's Day! What'd you do to celebrate?
Yours xx
