The second annual Anti-Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

So last year I created the very first Anti-Valentine’s Day Gift Guide and boooooy was it a hit.  My friends emailed it around like it was a Lindsay Lohan crotch shot and so, with crotch mentioned, I present to you the second annual Anti-Valentine’s Day Gift Guide.

An amazing blowout

Blow dry blars are popping up all over…but in LA, nothing beats Drybar.  I recently visited their new West Hollywood location, which is much closer to my apartment, and I continue my adoration for this salon.  When you’re having a bad day nothing, I repeat nothing, beats an amazing blow out.

LUSH It’s Raining Men Honey Rich Shower Gel

I’m a self-proclaimed shower gel junkie and for as much as I like this product’s name, I equally like the smell.  It’s Raining Men is made with lotus flowers and a dash of honey to soothe dry skin while cleansing.

Kate Somerville Clinic

I had one of the best facials of my life at Kate Somerville’s Clinic in West Hollywood so when I was recently invited to a press event at the Clinic, I was pretty excited.  There’s something insanely relaxing and zen-like about the decor; it’s super girly and chic and just sitting in the waiting room puts me in a better mood, which is exactly why a facial or massage at the Clinic would make for an ideal Anti-Valentine’s Day gift.

Frederick’s of Hollywood Feather Fantasy

How very Black Swan, no? I’m not one for wild and crazy lingerie but with my recent feather obsession, I’m way into this bra and panty set.  Wear it for yourself and feel sexy doing it.


Baked By Melissa Valentine’s Day mini cupcakes

These cupcakes are my most favorite in the whole wide world and I can’t think of a better day this year to eat a few (or a small box) of these.  The Valentine’s Day version comes in a special Valentine’s Day box so you can also gift these to your mom, sister, single girlfriends, etc.  LOVE.

Inspired By: “Black Swan”

So I recently saw the movie “Black Swan” and instantly fell in love.  As a former ballerina I can appreciate the way Natalie Portman trained so hard for the role and she danced beautifully, I might add.  In all honesty the movie was, yes, super creepy but I find myself entirely inspired…
