Valentine's Day Tits...

Not really! More like... I asked my boyfriend, "what tagline would grab you're attention?" And while he was busy thinking, I blurted out, "TITS instead of TIPS!" Then, I  was so tickled with myself that I had to give it a try. If you were one of the lucky few to click and have been entertained thus far...by all means keep reading, there's more!

I don't know about you, but I've never been a fan of chocolates! Not that I wouldn't appreciate the gesture, but lets face it...if you're giving me chocolates, it's safe to say you don't know me very well. So, you're either new and trying to impress me, or old and couldn't care less about me. Either of which is bound to make an impression. For the sake of the blog... say you're guy #1. I realize it's highly unlikely you've stumbled upon this blog intentionally, but I'm willing to pretend {just this once} that men everywhere are tuning into me for help on how to win at Valentine's Day.  

First, flowers are always wonderful, but on Valentine's Day, the demand goes up and so does the price...like 3X AS MUCH!!! Plus, flowers die. So, save the flowers for a random Wednesday - get off work, swing by the grocery, grab a nice $12.99 bundle, and surprise her for no reason. Hell, have them delivered. Just choose another random day of the year. That will get you way more brownie points than sending flowers on the one day a year when everyone else is doing it too. 

Next, Cards... and they're a BIG YES!! Especially if you take the time to find one that defines your current relationship. For those of you who are interested in upping your card game to the next level, I have a best friend whose husband made her a card. Yes, I'm talking crayons and construction paper. Needless to say, she loved it , and it stayed on the refrigerator months. Women are all about words, especially when written out on paper to be re-read for eternity.  Cards {both hand-made and store bought} can produce a huge return on a small investment. Just remember, you'll get back what you're willing to put in. 

Another important point is knowing  {and you should} if you are dating or are married to the kind of women who would be offended by lingerie. If you're on the fence about what her opinion might be, skip it. Go for a safer choice. In the meantime, you can always fish for more information that would be more useful in the future. However, if you know she would appreciate the notion, go to the trouble of checking her current undergarments for the correct size before you purchase anything. Nothing will let the air out of your sails faster than the "Wrong Size."

Finally, It's ok ask for help. I used to own a women's boutique and helped men pick out gifts for their special someone all the time, but I always suggested they make the final decision. "You know her best, so trust your instinct!"

Below, are a few items I think would go over like gangbusters. Each is numbered and has a link to how they can be purchased. Some of the items are a bit pricey, so I found similar products to achieve the look for less. Enjoy! And I hope my free advice was extremely helpful to the all the imaginary men who were reading it.

 

XOXO - Nicole 

PS: A LITTLE TAG OR ENCLOSURE CARD WITH THE GIFT(S) WILL GO ALONG WAY...ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE COY OR FLIRTATIOUS.

I love both red lipcolors equally, but I was really impressed with how well the Merle Norman Age Defying + Lipcolor in Americana stayed put. It was creamy and lasted for hours and hours. I have personally never experienced that in a lipstick before...So, Bravo, Merle Norman!!!
