My advice for any guy buying something for a girl on Valentine’s Day would be to keep it simple. There’s a reason why flowers, chocolate, and jewellery are forever Valentine’s Day classics. It’s because you really can’t go wrong. I always joke that I’m basically the easiest person in the world to shop for. Buy me ANYTHING pink or sparkly and I’ll love it. Buy me pink flowers on Valentine’s Day and I’m the happiest girl in the world.
Whether you’re planning to spoil yourself, a friend, mom or sister this VDay (or maybe you want to leave this page open on your computer to drop some hints for your man), I hope the below guide provides a little inspiration. I stuck with the classics that I think most women would love – a beautiful purse, a piece of jewellery, a new fragrance, a delicious smelling candle or a pretty dress to wear for an evening out.

It’s no secret that I love Valentine’s Day. Any holiday that is all about pink and love and chocolate and flowers, has my heart. I love the idea of hosting a Valentine’s (or Galentine’s) Day brunch for your girlfriends, family, group of couples or just for you and your man. Since Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year, brunch is the perfect way to celebrate.
I’ve collaborated with the adorable Kaylee from The Blondielocks blog on this Pretty in Pink Valentine’s Day Brunch below. We had so much fun putting this together (and eating all the treats afterwards). I’ve been looking for any excuse to style my new rustic wood dining table. I just moved into a new house and out of everything we bought for the new house, this table is my fav purchase.
Thanks to AG Macarons for the DELICIOUS macarons. If you haven’t stopped by AG Macarons’ 2 Toronto locations you must before VDay! The window displays are so amazing and these macarons with the little hearts on top are so adorable. And thanks to Olivia from Flower Maiden for the beautiful floral arrangements she put together! Flowers always make everything better.
I hope this inspires whatever plans you have for this Valentine’s Day!

Would it really be Valentine’s Day without chocolate? They definitely go hand in hand. From as far back as I can remember, my parents always gave me chocolate on Valentine’s Day, then it was my school mates and now it’s my boyfriend. There were also the years when I was single on VDay and would just gift it to myself (why not?).
For me, chocolate is a must on VDay, which brings us to our next Valentine’s Day giveaway! This delicious basket full of chocolate goodies from Nestlé (valued at $100 including three varieties of ROLOs, Turtles and Smarties) could be yours! This VDay just got a whole lot sweeter – especially now that ROLO features even creamier caramel!
