What can I say? Paloma Jonas and Whitney Brown are babes! But the duo aren’t just a pair of pretty faces. The two former models and friends have developed a lingerie/lifestyle brand that is anything but ordinary. And let’s be honest, model/entrepreneurs that design lingerie, what could be better?
Valentine NYC was conjured up when the two friends noticed a gap in the market for cool, comfortable, and affordable lingerie. Thanks to that gap we now get to shop a selection of cool, simple, elegant bras and panties that are must-haves. Valentine doesn’t just stop there though. It’s also a lifestyle brand with an awesome blog attached where you can take an intimate glimpse into the lives of aspirational women, men, and couples through photographs and quick interviews that project Valentine’s free-spirited vibe. I had the pleasure of being a part of the Valentine NYC blog which you can see here.
So, if you are looking for some inspiration or a new bra and panty set for this Valentine’s Day I highly suggest you check out Valentine NYC.
Alright don’t hate me for saying this, but I am loving life right now. Not that I don’t always love it, because I do, but wrapping up this vacation in Cabo and getting to head home and work is just a thrill! Maybe it’s just the margaritas talking?
I picked up some textiles while here and a little bit of a tan and am now I’m ready to get back to the real world.
Winter has been torturing our skin for a little too long at this point. And if dry and dull are two words that come to mind when you look in the mirror… How on earth are you going to look on Valentine’s Day?!
Thank goodness there is Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask to the rescue! This frothy/foamy mask blasts skin with oxygen and vitamin C to give it a dewy glow and leave you saying goodbye to lackluster skin in just 5 minutes.
Raw cacao (not its cousin the roasted and processed cocoa) is said to help alleviates stress and reduce cataracts. The theobromine naturally found in raw cacao is a mild, non-addictive stimulant that some believe can treat depression. It may cause the brain to produce more of a neurotransmitter called anandamide which would account for the euphoric sensation some feel when indulging in chocolate.
Dark chocolate is also über healthy. Eating dark chocolate two to three times a week can lower your risk of stroke, lower blood pressure, and it is full of antioxidants.
All you need to remember… Everything in moderation!
With Valentine’s Day looming around the corner you might be in search of lovely lacy things. Here are my top picks for V-day lingerie…
Von Follies By Dita Von Teese
This awesome new line of lingerie is by a woman who does most of her day job in lingerie. So, leave it to her to make a line of comfortable, functional, and afordable undergarments for the modern woman looking for a vintage twist. And it also comes in plus sizes!
Von Follies By Dita Von Teese Satin Quilting Corset and Thong
This beautiful satin and Chantilly lace set was designed by fashion It Girl Julia Restoin Roitfield for my favorite lingerie store Kiki de Montparnasse. It is sexy with a touch of feminine class.
I am loving the color of this sweet set from Topshop and I am loving the price even more!
This beautiful robe is from a new intimates line called Unspoken Lingerie. Made of the softest silk it would be a great compliment to any lingerie you already own.
Made from a thick satin with a tie up back, this corset from Agent Provocateur is sure to get his heart beating a little faster!
