Schedule a relaxing massage, sleep in, or try a new look. Whether you’re staying in for a romantic evening or heading out for a night on the town, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to pamper yourself and have some fun. Here are some must haves that are designed to put a smile on your face on this sweet holiday.

Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play
Available at Target, CVS,
About $6

Mix it up for Valentine’s Day….or should we say mess it up! This product is a flexible, working hairspray that gives incredible volume and lift. It can turn your ordinary do into a red carpet version of the “just off the beach” look. As the name suggests, just spray and play.


Flirt-It Lash Duo
Available at Sephora
About $8

Mascara might work fine on a normal day, but Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to call in the big guns. These finely graduated, strip lashes enhance your natural lash line, without looking overdone. Use the half strips to give a cat-like lift to the outer corners of the eyes or the full-length strips for a full out flutter.


Bra-llelujah Lace Bra by Spanx
Available at department stores,
About $68

You know Spanx has made it into mainstream consciousness when the stars started discussing the slimming undergarments on the red carpet during the recent SAG Awards. Now, Spanx has introduced a bra that looks too good to keep covered up. The latest version of Bra-llelujah is updated with a luxe lace overlay while still staying true to the original signature design that eliminates back bulge and underarm fat.


Flair Reading Glasses
Available at

Squinting at the menu during your Valentine’s Day dinner is not sexy … and neither is borrowing your honey’s thick, masculine glasses! Splurge on a new pair of readers that will make you feel elegant and stylish when you pull them out of your handbag. We like this style in cherry red.
