Hey all! Ready for Valentine’s Day? I think I am! I have shopped for those special people in my life (including some beauty products, of course).
I though I would post some products that can either be nice gifts, or used in getting ready for V-Day– and beyond:
This would be a gorgeous gift to share with your bestie (or keep both for your self)! This is the beautyblender BBF kit ($40 USD). beautyblenders are such an amazing sponge, so this would be quite the treat!
To make this even sweeter, beautyblender is proud to announce its partnership with American Heart Association. The world’s favorite pink makeup applicator is blending for cause – to help improve the quality of life of people who have heart disease….one bounce at a time.
Throughout the entire month of February, 25% of all sales from the best-selling BBF kit on beautyblender.com will be donated to American Heart Association. PLUS every BBF kit sold will receive a free 10oz liquid blendercleanser ($30 Value)!

I know Valentine’s day is just a couple of days away, but these would be nice at any time. I love fresh makeup and body care — plus I love pampering myself!
I hope you all have an amazing Valentine’s Day, whether you are going out with friends, celebrating with a significant other, or having a self care night at home (don’t forget the wine)!
