Valentine’s Day Ideas {Staying in or Going Out}

Are you staying-in or going-out for Valentine’s Day? I put together a few ideas for both occasions! Dan and I are planning on staying home this year {just like our first year}. We’re looking forward to playing some Bing Crosby and Gershwin records while we cook up some tasty cacio e pepe in our tiny kitchen. We can’t wait to crack open a special bottle of Sicilian wine {that our friend Justin got us on his latest deployment — thanks Justin}.If you’re looking for a fun sappy movie that both of you will enjoy, I would suggest Princess Bride — it’s pretty awesome. I bought my first box of Charbonnel et Walker Marc de Champagne Truffles for a Vday surprise. Ohhhh maw gawd. Officially hooked. Do you think Dan will notice that one is missing? The best chocolate I’ve ever had…literally fit for a Queen {of England that is}. They were Founded in 1875 and are one of Britain‘s oldest chocolatiers that are endorsed by the Royal Warrant as chocolate manufacturer to Her Majesty The Queen. Fun Fact.

Sometimes it’s fun to get dressed up and find a fancy place for dinner! I really want to try The BazaarBottega Louie or Red O. I also heard of a restaurant called Perch that is located on the 15th floor of a high-rise with 360 views of Downtown LA. That would be so dreamy.

Love this dress and I’ve really been diggin’ the faux fur lately…

This perfume ^^^ Sexual Sugar by Michel Germain is a thumbs up. So yeah… the name is a tad strange, but it smells amazing! Who cares what it’s called! I’ve only tried a sample of it, but I’ve got to go get a bottle. Here’s how they describe it –> 

Wild berries and orange zest with notes of passion flower and jasmine. Heart notes of fresh roasted almonds, vanilla crème brulee and sandalwood.

And as usual…I’m excited about more chocolate {notice that I have chocolate involved in both scenarios}. I first read about these beautiful little treats on OhJoy. They sound divine. GODIVA Truffle Flight six truffles, placed in a tasting order that build in flavor and intensity.  Inspired by the finest desserts from around the world with flavors like birthday cake, pineapple hummingbird, cheesecake, red velvet,  lemon chiffon, Aztec spice, chocolate eclair, crème brulee, chocolate, lava cake, tiramisu and strawberry crème tarte etc. 

You pick the flight…Well that sounds fun.

Happy soon to be Valentine’s Day to you all!
