Which would you choose? Valentines day edition!

Happy Valentines day! Well in light of the holiday of love, this is a Valentines day edition of my weekly Which would you choose. So, here is my little scenario…… your significant other has decided to surprise you and whisk you off to your absolute most favorite restaurant in the world. It can be anywhere, no worries..the “travel fairies” have it all arranged! So go for it, and make it something goooood!

?

You get to be wined and dined all night long by the person you love (does it get any better)? but there’s one detail missing…..the dress! Always about the dress. So here are your choices…..all in various shades of love (red and pink with a few blacks thrown in for good measure). Take a close look and which one most says “Be my valentine”? Can’t wait to hear…..

??Ahhh so many beauties, I would wear any one of them.? So tell me which you would choose! Do you like dressing up going all out or do you prefer a casual night to kick back? We have a long standing tradition with one of my best friends and her husband, we go out to a favorite restaurant to celebrate every year and have been doing it for years…always look forward to a night of friendship, love and laughter! So tell me, what are you doing on this day of love?

?

PS Want to know what I am giving myself for this special day? Besides the small box of hand dipped chocolates I treat myself to every Valentines day. Well I always wanted to try this and lately am really into skincare, so bit the bullet and finally indulged in the award winning cream to the stars, La Prarie’s famed Caviar cream. Yes its expensive, but hopefully worth it. As I have heard repeated, “never ever go cheap on your face”. Right on. Will let you know how my face likes it:)

Red hot on Valentines Day!



Happy Valentines Day!?

Well I am finally seeing the light at the end of this tunnel…..and feeling better today~not perfect but far better than yesterday, and “getting back in the saddle” is only a day away……..didn’t make it to the house yesterday but possibly today and will take some updated pictures.

How could I not do a post on something red for Valentines day? I know I will be like everyone else….. but let’s face it if there’s a day to dedicate to red interiors……today, folks is that day! So today we pay homage to all things red. And though I confess that I am not what you might call a “red enthusiast” when it comes to home decor I think some of these pictures prove it can actually be quite successful when done correctly. In fact many of these rooms are really downright beautiful, demonstrating that red can be really fabulous. Do you have a favorite? Or is there some way that you like to include red in your home? Hope whatever you are doing today, whether its just like any other day for you or you are going all out and doing something incredibly fabulous..that it is a great day for each and every one of you.



Wishing you an enchanting Valentines day……..
