I’m a firm advocate of self-love and taking the time to self-reflect and take care of yourself, which includes mind, body and soul. This Valentine’s Day, it’s not just about loving your partner, it’s about loving yourself.
There are many things I do to throughout the year to take care of myself, some of which include journaling, working on this blog, focusing on my fitness, and eating nutritious food. One thing i’m planning on doing specifically for Valentine’s Day is a bit of self-indulgence. The women in my life are always taking care of everyone around them. The 14th of February marks a day you can kick back and do some things to treat yourself. Therefore for this post, i’m partnering with Chanel to highlight some of my favorite products.
100% guilt-free pampering
Most of all, this is your day to completely indulge in 100% guilt-free pampering. Whether that’s a day to binge watch your favorite shows, a long phone call with a close friend, a day at the spa, some uninterrupted quiet time, or some new additions to your beauty collection, this post is all about you.
Gabrielle Chanel Fragrance– A really great fragrance is the finishing touch to any outfit. What’s more classic than Chanel? The new Gabrielle fragrance is sexy, feminine, and exotic without being too overpowering. It’s also the first new fragrance from Chanel in 15 years! The inspiration for this fragrance was essentially Gabrielle, the woman Coco Chanel was before founding her House. She was a rebel at heart, passionate and self-ruling, freeing herself to become the woman she wanted to be. If you love Chanel products and you haven’t picked this one up yet, I highly recommend it.
Rouge Coco Gloss in Caramel-a universally flattering nude lip gloss that’s a makeup bag essential. It has a non-sticky, ultra-light formula that leaves lips smooth and plump with just the right amount of shine. Since i’m all about the ingredients in the products I feature, I also want to mention that this one is enriched with Cocunut, Vitamin E, and a Hydraboost Complex that offers hours of comfort and moisture.
La Crème Main Hand Cream– I don’t think I have ever described my hand cream as chic but this is quite possibly the prettiest hand cream i’ve ever owned. I was immediately drawn to the deceivingly simple design, which is meant to maintain its shape and protect the formula. Perhaps equally as important, the unique shape makes it easy to locate in the bottom of your purse. It’s formulated to absorb quickly into skin without leaving a sticky residue. The hydrating and softening May Rose Wax leaves a moisturizing, protective veil on skin for lasting benefits.
Rouge Coco Blush in Teasing Pink and Burning Berry-a brand new product that just came out this month. It’s actually a 2-in-1 blush for lips AND cheeks. With sheer-to-intense versatility, the buildable lip blush leaves a perfectly matte finish.
Le Vernis in Shantung-The quintessential red nail polish for Valentine’s Day. The unique formula strengthens and improves the quality of nails over time and has a longer-lasting, high-shine color. Sometimes you just want to add some drama to an outfit. This hyper-pigmented lacquered polish will do the trick.
Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in Rouge Feu-the ideal shade of red for lips that are perfectly on point. Although I may not necessarily want to go the traditional route and wear a red dress on Valentine’s Day, I know i’ll want a red lip. This non-drying matte lipstick glides on lips with an intensely rich, long-wearing color and a soft, velvet matte finish. Additionally, Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter add a moisturizing effect.
