Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is around the corner. Regardless of how seriously you take the holiday, it’s time to plan your Valentine’s Day prep.

Valentine's Day Prep


Write your cards

Valentine’s Day cards are an absolute must, obviously. I’m loving these cuties from Fox & Bear Paper Co. and just purchased a print as a gift for a friend. The watercolor prints are darling and I just want to hoard them all.

Paint your nails

Nothing says festive like a holiday-appropriate shade of nail polish. You can’t go wrong with a classic red or pink, but I also love lilac and blue for Valentine’s Day. Violets are blue, after all. This year I’m going with essie’s plumberry.

Plan your outfit

I’m not a head-to-toe pink type of gal when it comes to Valentine’s Day, but I like to wear at something festive. Even if it’s just my favorite blush pink scarf or Cole Haan jacket, I’ll be wearing something for the holiday.

Wrap your gifts

Whether you gift your Valentine’s something over the top or as simple as a pack of Burt’s Bees, make sure to wrap them up! Holiday wrapping if always so fun, and Valentine’s Day wrapping is no exception. I mean, look at this beautiful shit!


Pick out your lipstick

Regardless of how much smooching you plan to do during Valentine’s Day, you should pick up a fun color that makes you feel fabulous. I’ll most likely go for my standard hot pink, but I’m also  considering a classic red. Decisions, decisions.
