Pamper Night Essentials

Valentine's Day pamper night essentials
As lovely as it can be to celebrate Valentine's Day with a significant other, I'm not exactly one for "romance" — I try really hard to make Mr. AiF feel special all year round, and let's be real, gorging on chocolate and buying flowers are pretty much weekly occurrences for me, so I don't like to put too much pressure on that one particular day. What I do like to do during Valentine's, however, is treat myself to a good old pamper session, or carve out some quality time with my girlfriends to do things our boys would never be caught dead doing — SATC marathons while wearing sheet masks, anyone? What can I say, I know how to show my ladies a good time... I'm taking friendship applications as we speak.

First up, nail polish. After getting my nails in tip-top shape last week, I started to crave a dark mani... shocking, I know. So I decided to give into the hype and try out the Olivia Palermo x Ciate London collection in 'Napa Valley.' It turned out to be as gorgeous as I imagined it would be, and applied like a dream, leaving a super glossy finish to my nails. Plus the packaging itself felt incredibly luxurious, so it turned out to be the perfect choice for an indulgent pamper night in... win-win.

From there, various beauty treatments ensue, including my favourite sheet masks for face and eyes, a conditioning treatment for my split ends (Kevin Murphy is a God), and a heavy slathering of Aesop's Resurrection hand balm, aka the greatest hand cream known to man... and I never exaggerate.

Flipping through magazines and snacking on tasty treats (hello, raspberry heart cookies!) while watching all my guilty pleasures is definitely a must during a pamper night — take it from me, it's good for the soul to watch old favourites and have a good laugh or cry. And speaking of good for the soul, a little lingerie never hurt anyone either! Not to get too TMI on you or anything, but wearing something extra special under my clothing always gives me an extra surge of confidence, and I love that it's like having a little secret that's just for me... I basically walk around with a sly grin on my face all day long! So in honour of Valentine's Day, I thought I would kick it up a notch with this sexy little number from Le Mystere's Sophia collection — because really, is there anything better than a lace bodysuit? Of course not.

  1. I've been making googly eyes at Napa Valley ever since I saw it at my Sephora, but the price was a little prohibitive... I think I might have to give in another look. It looks really lovely and romantic on you.
