Putting on your very own Valentine’s celebration is all about staging. First thing first, a Valentine’s essential, candles!
Romantic and in full bloom, some candles are not only great for lighting, they’re also great for scenting the room with wonderful fragrance. Here are three current favorites…
Love can’t get any clearer than Diptyque’s Pink Roses Candle. At $68 it won’t be on everyone’s shopping list but could make a luxurious gift for that special someone. Available for a limited time only at the Diptyque store in San Francisco & New York in addition to other stores such as Aedes, Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman & Saks.
If you don’t feel like spending that much go for Candle Delirium to get your glow on. Still in love with the scent on this one… Priced in the under $40 range, you will still have a great light and scent.
And now for the extremely affordable and at the same time ultra-luxurious, head to the local Bath and Body Works for Slatkin & Co Candles. Just $20 for 14.5 ounce and $4 for the 4 ounce (sale until 1/25). My personal pick is the Passion Fruit & Guava for the super romantic color and name.
All three are fabulous picks, nice clean burns, long lasting and great scent.
The next thing you may need is a camera and I just want to plug the super sweet little FLIP I’ve been using. I LOVE that I don’t need to charge batteries! I LOVE that I don’t need find the cord to connect to my computer to download! I didn’t love the Flip software on my computer at first but NOW I do! I recommend this to anyone who’s sick of messing with technology that doesn’t work well. I thought it was a flimsy piece of junk at first because it’s so lightweight and portable but after using it and tossing it around without incident I am convinced this is a must have for everyone on the planet. Not particularly good for zooming but if you do lots of close up recording the FLIP is fool proof. Love love love love it.
I’ll comment more as we get closer to Valentine’s Day there is still a lot of prep work to do ladies!!
