Sparkly Favorites: Valentine's (& Birthday!) Edition


Being that today is Valentine's Day (and, um, also my birthday...!), I thought it would be fun to showcase a few things that I'm really loving lately--all in a festive red and gold theme. Of course.


Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in April (c/o): It's a gorgeous, creamy berry polish. It's Chanel. It's limited-edition. Run don't walk.


Sparkly Soul Headbands (c/o): These bands come in a jewelry box's worth of glittery colors and every single one is so gorgeous. They hold hair securely and the inner side is finished in velvet, so you can wear them either way. (Love me anything reversible!)


Laura Mercier Nail Lacquer in Sizzle (c/o): You'll definitely be seeing this hot reddish-orange polish on my toes regularly this summer. Promise.


Versace Yellow Diamond Eau de Toilette (c/o): This sparking, citrus-y fragrance may be spring-y, but I've been wearing it all winter long ever since I went to its launch event a few months back. It has notes like pear and mimosa so it feels light and fresh, but it's grounded with amber and musk so it's still totally sexy. Love, love, love.  


Spike The Punch necklace: If you've visited a blog in the last few months, I know you know these fun sparkly necklaces. They come in the coolest color combos and they are affordable enough that you can buy several. (I'm hoping for a neon one next!) They go with pretty much anything, but I especially love juxtaposing their blinginess with a more casual outfit like I did here.


Dolce & Gabbana leopard sunglasses: I'm normally not a cat-eye sunglasses person, but the shape is done so subtly here that it totally works for me. But truthfully, I'd probably wear them even if they were octagon shaped or something (!), because I'm that obsessed with the amazing leopard pattern on the arms. Me-ow!


M.A.C. Tendertone Lip Balm in Hot 'n' Saucy (c/o): I actually shrieked when this crossed my desk at work, because it looks and feels exactly like my all-time favorite red lipcolor, which was sadly discontinued a few years ago. This new M.A.C. version is the perfect sheer cherry and it moisturizes like crazy.


Stella & Dot Sierra Necklace (c/o): I find myself reaching for this statement-making necklace several times a week. It elevates a solid-colored tee, sweater, or dress  to something much more interesting and special in seconds. Throw it on and prepare yourself for the compliments.


So, those are a few of my favorite things as of late. Hope you enjoyed them. Have a wonderful Valentine's Day, eat lots of chocolate, and sparkle baby, sparkle!

I love Spike the Punch too! And, naturally, I need the Chanel polish.

Happy belated Birthday! I loved this post... so much fun sparkle. Spike the Punch has become a favorite of mine, too... I love all of their bright necklaces! I've taken to wearing two at a time... it's fun to combine the different color combos!
