Week in Review // February 2017

Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day with your sweetheart, Galentine’s Day with your girlfriends, or just trying to avoid the hype altogether, we’ve outlined some “sweet” ideas for treating yourself and others.

Treat-Yourself-Gift-Ideas-Nordstrom

Spending money on lavish dinners and giant bouquets of roses isn’t always money well spent. Instead, choose a little something that will make you happy for months to come (well, except those gummy bears, we all know those will be gone in a flash!).

If we had a little cash (or a Nordstrom Note to burn) we’d consider one of these pretties:
CHANEL Rouge Coco / Diptyque Scented CandleJo Malone Peony & Blush Suede Cologne‘Naked2’ Palette / ‘Naked Smoky’ PaletteSugarfina Rose All Day Rose Infused Gummy Bears

Or pretty much anything Sugarfina, for that matter! I mean seriously, how cute are these?

They’re almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
[If you’re in MN, be sure to swing by the new (permanent!) Sugarfina shop at the Mall of America near the Radisson Blu.]

And then there’s our perennial favorite, Glossier!

Try Glossier Haloscope,  Soothing Face Mist, Generation G, Priming Moisturizer Rich or Super Pure.

Essie-Nailpolish

Could pink nails be any more fitting for Feb? Didn’t think so! Essie has nearly every shade under the sun (and we love most all of them!).

Similarly, you may be seeking a pop of pink or rich red lip color. Here’s a sampling of our faves from The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain [Left x 3] and Clinique Chubby Sticks [right x 2].

Have you seen the new Clinique Chubby Crayola  Lip Crayon Box Set? Never imagined this partnership, but we don’t hate it!

If you’re looking for something nude or dark + dramatic instead, check out these new beauties from Bite Beauty @ Sephora.
