Thanks everyone for an amazing 27th birthday!
Living in a tiny apartment on the west side of Midtown Manhattan, I’m always looking for beautiful ways to save space. To make this fancy nail polish and makeup station, I saved the vase my boyfriend sent me a dozen roses in on Valentine’s Day, filled it with my favorite nail polish colors, and topped it off with makeup brushes, eyeliner, and a handy nail file. It’s not only a beautiful decoration, but it’s a functional way to store my makeup and nail polish that doesn’t involve having all my beauty products thrown across my windowsill.

Whether you’re single or taken, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to celebrate your love of fashion, pink hearts, and radiant red lipstick. It’s also a great time of year to either get sent or send yourself a lovely bouquet of flowers. That is of course if you even remember it’s Valentine’s Day in between viewing the latest Fall Collections at New York Fashion Week which runs from Feb. 7th-14th. So before I get caught up in the glamour of viewing the next fall season at Lincoln Center, I’m putting together an amazing lists of Valentine’s Day gifts for every budget without the typical corniness that tends to follow this holiday. So treat yourself or a friend to some Valentine’s Day fabulosity. Or if you’re super subtile, send your significant other a link to this post.
Bonjour lovely Socialites! I wish I knew how to say “socialite” in French. After all, it is almost Valentine’s Day so it’s time to up the romance factor. The French are known for being expert romantics so on Valentine’s Day it couldn’t hurt to take a hint from them. Ode a La Rose is a Parisian style flower delivery service providing New Yorkers with beautiful fresh perfectly cut rose bouquets previously sold only in the corner flower shops of France. French men know how a single bouquet of flowers can melt a woman’s heart. So it’s no wonder that when the Ode a La Rose founders, Olivier and Louis, came to New York from France they started the only flower service that gives American men the opportunity to gift the boutique-level roses European women have taken for granted for centuries. The best part is they are also affordable to lovers on any budget. As a special touch, a photo of the bouquet is taken right before it leaves their chic workshop and emailed to the sender along with the exact delivery time. Very classy!
If the email wasn’t classy enough, the bouquets are also hand-delivered the same day in their signature Ode a la Rose gift box. The gift boxes are unlike any other and a presentation in themselves. These signature boxes wittily state, “Aren’t you the lucky one?” which is exactly what you are if you’re a woman in New York receiving flowers on Valentine’s Day or any day for that matter. In case you didn’t already know, the population of men to women in New York City doesn’t exactly work in any girl’s favor. But, that shouldn’t stop you from dreaming or cause you to lower your dating standards. Perhaps, Paris has more prospects.
This may really be your lucky day because Ode a La Rose is offering a special discount this Valentine’s Day. To get 10% off your order, “like” the Ode a la Rose Facebook page to obtain a promo code. Oh Ruh-Vwar my loves!
