Valentine’s Day is around the corner, but instead of doing a traditional his and hers gift guide I decided to do something a little more selfish. This year I’m encouraging you to treat yourself. I’ve picked out a few of my favorite little luxuries that are sure to make you fall back in love with yourself.

First up is a dress that makes you feel beautiful. I’ve linked a mix of stunning pieces that you’re sure to love. My second treat is a luxe Eric Buterbaugh gift box. It comes with Compartés chocolates, a pretty matchbox, gold plated wick trimmer, fresh flowers, vase, rose candle, and beautiful cards with adorable messages like “You drink too much, you cuss too much, and you have questionable morals. You’re everything I ever wanted in a friend.”. Buy it for a friend or better yet yourself. Last but not least you can’t feel anything but gorgeous wearing an Anine Bing lace bra. They’re pricey but completely worth every penny.

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday, go spoil yourself.

Treat Yourself

I made this bouquet from all the leftover birthday flowers I received over the last week. I picked out the freshest looking blooms and whipped up this lovely arrangement for my bedside table.

Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday, thanks for stopping by.

So as some of you have seen on my Instagram Live I’m in New York shooting a project with Match.com and Sam is at home with the pups. I’m here talking about relationships and people always ask me how we make it work, well Sam is at home and made this bouquet for me and shot it for this post. When he sent me the pictures he said “don’t tell em’ I made it” but I can’t help letting people know what a great guy he is and that even though it takes a lot of work, when you meet the right person you just know.

I love using fresh flowers as part of my holiday decor. It all started a few years ago when I decided to make a few ornaments with some pretty roses I had leftover after a project. I adored the look of the rose ornaments and have been using flowers on my decorations ever since. This year I used white peonies, yellow garden roses, and citrus hued ranunculus to create our wreath. For the tree I used small pink roses accented with yellow garden roses and white peonies. If you look closely you can see that I continued the theme of fresh greenery with my gift wrapping by adding in holly berry leaves. *If you have dogs make sure to never use the berries themselves as they are highly poisonous.

Check out my fresh flower ornament DIY. It’s easier than you think.

Happy Flower Friday. Hope you have a great weekend.
