V-DAY luxe pleasures to gift
POSH V-DAY pleasures to love for the Chic lady with a modern lifestyle. Gift her scents to evoke the romance for a special day with a few accessories to compliment the vault of beauty finds. We’ve added a handful of red must-haves to enhance the look for the occasion-or not.
Starting at the base with fresh faced healthy skin from the inventor of Sonicare®, two great devices to keep youthfulness where it belongs… on you! Clarisonic’s Aria uses sonic technology cleanses gently, removing black heads and reducing redness and combating against the effects of aging – comes in Candy Apple Red ($119). Similarly the Ruby Opal Sonic Infusion System is used an Anti-Aging Sea Serum to smooth and brighten eyes while hydrating using 7500 gentle micro-massages. Both are available via b-glowing, a fab site for all who possess the get beautified gene. B-glowing’s supply of body feel good brands is equally impressive. On our list of loves: Tammy Fender’s Bulgarian Lavender oil ($65), the Damascene Body Serum ($72), Botanical Body Hydrator by Marula ($55).
Beauty that goes beyond is where it’s at. May we suggest a gift from Laura Mercier that’s all heart while still playing up our vanity factor? There’s a giving factor we call charitable cosmetics , and with companies like Laura Mercier selling products with 100% of the profits going to a designated Ovarian Cancer Fund, the Lip Glacé in Rose Hope ($24) becomes a more meaningful investment. Other items in the better body category includes Face & Cheeks Crème Colour offerings.
Aromatic pleasure comes in a light pink package with l’eau Narciso Rodriguez with campaign featuring Carmen Kass in black and white imagery. The eau de toilette for her is made in Paris, France and ranges in price from $77-$104, available at Saks in February. And how about a brand new meaning for the term fragrance rep? Nomaterra perfumes creates scents that evoke the vibe of certain cities across the U.S. We feel the heat of Miami, and love the option of spritz ($110 ea).
It’s not all products and perfumes – accessorizing seals the deal regardless of the outfit. Red is right with Burberry’s v-day selection of add-ons. Of course there is the Blaze Bag – red hot and shiny with wallet to match at that; 2 very special key fobs in red metallic cadmium; and some pucker pleasure too in the form of Lip Glow in fondant pink and Lip Velvet in military red.
Leaving you on a leggy note with an absolutely adorable slash sexy find. From the label Misguided, flesh colored hose with black hearts at the knee mixing edgy and sweet all in one uniquely chic statement. Has all this talk gotten you in the mood for some indulgence, we sure hope so. FDM v-day selects by Brigitte Segura, written by Sarah Freiseis.
