FRIDAY FAVORITES....VALENTINE EDITION


Love is in the air....everywhere I look around. We got slammed with some snow this week and I'm happy about it. Ready to cozy up with my sweet Valentine, Mr. Nine. Spring will get here soon and hearing this may be our last snow storm of the winter, I'm gonna ignore 15 degrees outside and soak up some living room coziness with my hubby, blankie and Netflix.
HAPPY LOVE DAY Beauties!! xo

1. Love Martini
What would Valentines be without a little Love Potion? Ha Ha! I would probably only be making this for me as Hubs would want a beer. Definitely yummy and gorgeous!!


2. Heart Tops
Something so feminine and sweet about a heart blouse or top.






Forever 21 Lounging Heart Hoodie HERE

Bonus: Valentine inspired Work Outfit
All from Kohl's

3.  Sweet Treats
Chocolate, duh, any day 24/7 but at V-Day I am also crazy about Conversation Hearts but it has to be the ones by Brachs!!




I'm so set....weird Quirk..I only eat the white, yellow and green ones. Not a fan of the other colors. Sorry Hearts.


How cute are these cookies?


Shari's Berries
(A GREAT online website to have Chocolate covered berries delivered to your family and friends. I've had them, they are so good!)

4.Valentine Trees
This is the Office Tree I've mentioned before and how we decorate it for each holiday. Isn't it sweet!!





5. My First Necklace Story
Valentine's always has me reminiscing about the first necklace I ever received. 
It was the 1970's and my mom loved to buy Avon as before all the great places like Sephora, Ulta, Stella and Dot, etc, all we really had was Avon. The year she gave me this delicate and darling Conversation Heart necklace; my love of jewelry and conversion hearts began. I treasured that piece and always felt so soft and pretty when I wore it. It wouldn't fit around my neck now but as a little girl, you would've have thought that was pure gold around my neck.



May your Valentines weekend be full of so many precious memories like my heart necklace story and simply love a little extra on all those special people around you.

  2. I love candy hearts but sadly (and strangely) not one has had them around the office this year. Have a great weekend!

  13. Oh my gosh, everything in that drink looks amazing. I think I have just about all of it on hand, so I really want to make them this weekend :) Also, those heart tops!! I really need something festive for this weekend.

  14. Oh that martini looks delicious. I sort of wish I had one right now. I'm probably the only person in the world who does not like conversation hearts. I think they are cute to look at but I won't eat them as I don't like the taste. Everyone in my family LOVES them except for me. haha Hope you have a wonderful weekend pretty lady!

  15. Those martinis look delicious and too funny that you only eat certain color hearts! I'll have to pay more attention next time I have them. Cuddled up with a blankie sounds perfect this weekend. We got hit with a decent amount of snow on Wednesday and a little last night. Luckily I think they are toning down our weekend forecast. I am so ready for spring! Have a great weekend and enjoy your Valentine's Day!

  24. Love martini is awesome and I love the love clothes! I'm not so much into the Valentine's trees because I think it looks a little like you just left your tree up (which is how mine would look!), though the idea is really cute.

  25. The martini sounds delicious. My mom would buy me the bunny pins with perfume in them from Avon. I still like them for the memories they recall. Happy Valentine's Day. We will be snuggling too as -15 is supposed to be our temp tomorrow and more snow on Sunday.

  33. What a great post Andrea. For the longest time now I have dreamed of putting up a Valentine-themed tree. I have plenty of heart ornaments too. How great are those trees, especially the second one. And those conversation hearts are so cute. But I would love love that martini and one of those gorgeous Valentine cookies.

    I think you would love my current V-Day post.


    HOPE YOUR VALENTINE'S DAY WAS AMAZING!
