Love is in the Air

People often discredit Valentine’s Day as a holiday, but to be honest, it is one of my favourites! What’s not to love? It is a day to tell all the special people in your life just how much you love them. But, what I cherish most about Valentine’s Day is how everyone takes a moment out of their busy lives to enjoy a nice meal, pick up thoughtful gift, wear something special or indulge in a sweet treat.

 

As always, Willow Park Village is my favourite shopping destination for any occasion, and Valentine’s Day is no exception. This past Saturday I took a few minutes to go and pick up a little something special for everyone on my list!

 

 

Crave Cookies and Cupcakes

 Crave always has the most beautiful cupcakes – especially during a holiday! I know my daughter will absolutely love the unicorn cupcake and my best friend adores anything red velvet, so I preordered a dozen cupcakes to be delivered to my house. How easy is that?! I’m already looking forward to indulging in Crave’s buttercream icing!

 

 

Wong Ken Jewellery

My husband has been wanting a new watch for a while now, but I haven’t been able to find one that truly suited him – until I went to Wong Ken’s in WPV. It turns out the store is offering  35 per cent off all watches from now until February 14t h. I can’t wait to see his face when he opens his gift, I know he’ll love it!

 

 

Chianti Café & Restaurant

Chianti Café & Restaurant is one of my favourite restaurants, it has something for everyone! The atmosphere is inviting and warm, so it makes for the perfect date spot. I got my in-laws a Chianti’s gift card for Valentine’s – to me, there is nothing more romantic than Italian on a cold winter night!

 

 

Knickers ‘N Lace

As I mentioned in my last blog, one of my New Year’s resolutions is to set aside more me time. I wanted to pick up something special for myself this Valentine’s Day, so I stopped by Knickers ‘N Lace. I was overwhelmed with the selection they had – they carry undergarments in all styles and colours. I absolutely love the baby doll top and eye mask I got (I plan on getting some extra beauty rest this Valentine’s Day!). I also picked up a new pair Muchachomalo underwear for my husband!

 

 

Blooms and Butterflies

Blooms and Butterflies is definitely one of my favourite flower shops in the city, so it’s a definite must on my Valentine’s shopping list. I always like to send my mom something special on Valentine’s Day so I pre-ordered a beautiful bouquet of her favourite flowers – roses! But of course I couldn’t leave empty-handed, so I picked up a bouquet for myself too – hopefully they will last until my own Valentine’s Day flowers arrive (hint, hint).

 

There you have it, that is my Valentine’s Day shopping list. I couldn’t be happier with everything I picked up!  What’s your favourite part of Valentine’s Day? Whatever it may be, don’t forget to spread the love!
