It’s Valentine’s Day week! I absolutely love the novelty of Valentine’s Day– everything is all about love. Plus, I have an excuse break out anything and everything pink and heart-themed! This year, Valentine’s Day lands on a Friday– the perfect going-out night! Steve and I, however, will be staying in and celebrating at home. In fact, it’s our two year engagement anniversary, which makes it that much more special.
Even though we’re keeping our celebration low-key this year, there’s still so many ways to enjoy the holiday from the comforts of home. Whether you’re coupled up, single or celebrating with your favorite gals, here’s a few ideas for spending Valentine’s Day at home. Keep reading for more!
Get Comfy Cozy
The best thing about staying in on Valentine’s Day? Getting cozy! Put on your favorite pajamas and grab a comfortable blanket. Lately I’ve been loving this comfy pink throw blanket from the Ellen Tracy Home collection.
Made of cotton, the throw blanket is ultra-luxe, soft, lightweight and such a pretty pink color. I’m planning to keep it on the end of my bed to help elevate our bedding!
Are the girls coming over? Have everyone wear their PJ’s, bring some blankets and watch all your fave chick flicks– “The Notebook”, “Valentine’s Day” and “Never Been Kissed” are perfect for girls’ night!
Pour Some Wine
Opening up a bottle of wine is always a good idea, whether you’re having a romantic dinner for two at home or celebrating with the girls! My pick? Campo Viejo Reserva from Pernod Ricard, a rich complex red wine full of flavor.
This wine boasts tasting notes of cherries, blackberries, plums as we ll as clove and pepper for a soft bite. It’s the perfect red to pair with a delicious steak or a delectable cheese plate. The perfect wine to share with your beau or gal pals!
What’s Valentine’s Day without having some fun dressing up? Even if I’m staying in, I pull out my best pinks, reds and heart-shaped attire. The Ellen Tracy jewelry collection twist earrings are the must-have chic statement for your Valentine’s Day attire. These sterling silver earrings are polished in rose gold giving them a sparkling luster and glam vibe.
They are incredibly lightweight and so gorgeous. When I saw the price I was shocked… in a good way! I thought they would cost a lot more– I love finding jewelry pieces that are beautiful AND affordable! Oh, and wouldn’t these make the perfect gift?
These adorable heart-shaped glasses from Zenni eyewear are SO fun! Plus, they have the Zenni BlokzTM lenses which help block blue light to protect eyes. These are the perfect Valentine’s Day accessory and a total must-have for fun pics!
Add a Pop of Rose
Red lips for Valentine’s Day is too expected. Add a pretty rosy nude shade to lips instead with the Ellen Tracy Rosy Nudes Lip Gloss— a makeup set of four gorgeous rosy-hued shades. This pretty gloss set can be found at your local TJ Maxx, Marshall’s, Ross or Burlington. The colors are beautiful and so wearable- I’m impressed with how pigmented they are and how comfortable they are to wear!
Tip: For girls’ night, break the set up and give each of your gal pal’s a gloss so you can each rock a shade!
