Valentine’s Day is just a few days away. Whether you’re celebrating your love and appreciation for your other half or your awesome BFF, and if you’re lucky enough to score a babysitter (parents) that evening (or not!), here are a few of our favourite recommendations to help make this hearts day extra special.
♥ Forget the reservations or grocery run
Stay and order in a delicious (and romantic) meal for two with the help of Just-Eat.ca. Get access to tons of local restaurants that deliver (or you can pick-up), where you can see their entire menu options, see reviews, and order and also pay for your meal straight from your phone. Leaving you with a little extra time to cuddle!
♥ If you’re the shy or quiet type, or perhaps just unable to express yourself vocally but yet have so much to say, say it straight from the heart with a vast selection of cards and gift packaging suited to your tastes with Carlton Cards. Bonus: Save $2 when you buy 2 cards or more! Click here for coupon.
♥ There is no better way to get nice and cozy then with a great film on Netflix. After all, they didn’t come up with “Netflix and Chill” for nothing.
♥ Whether you’re hitting the town with the girls or getting dolled-up for date night – Teeez Cosmetics has the shades you need for the perfect lip-defining pout this Valentine’s Day!
- Lost in Loveland: Looking for a luscious light pink that’s long-lasting as you dance the night away? Read My Lips Lipstick in Loveland offers highly-pigmented coverage and a bold satin-matte finish. ($26.00 CAD)
- Ready for Anything: Don’t shy away from bold colours with a lip stain that promises a no-fade matte finish! For a shade that won’t smear with kisses, apply the Serial Lip Stain in pink-rouge Vivacious ($28.00 CAD)
♥ Fragrance is always a top gift idea on Valentine’s Day and this month, superstar and style icon Rihanna launches her newest fragrance at Shoppers Drug Mart. Kiss by Rihanna is the third fragrance in her namesake RiRi collection, and it’s described as being both seductive and playful.
The white floral fragrance is mixed with top notes of Neroli with a touch of juicy plum and Freesia. At the heart is orange blossom, Gardenia and Asian Pony. The base is cashmere wood, cedarwood and Ambergris.
Available now at Shoppers Drug Mart and Pharmaprix: 3.4oz EDP Spray ($69.00)
