It’s that time of year again~ Valentine’s Day. Some love it, some dread it. For me, the perfect V day is a day at home complete with pampering. 

First for some Valentine’s Day DIY beauty fun….

This is definitely the time of year for wintry, cracked and chapped lips, but with our tested, (we didn’t have to twist any arms for volunteers on this one!) plumping lip smoother you’ll be ready for whatever your post-Valentine’s week has in store for you…

All you need is a few ingredients you most likely already have in your kitchen. Ready? Let’s make those lips kissable soft!!

DIY Plumping Lip Smoother

What you will need:


  1. Assemble all ingredients in a small mixing bowl and mix thoroughly with a fork.
  2. Once mixed place mixture in a small jar.
  3. Shelf life 1 year. That’s it!!

So fabulously simple! We love that.

How to use:

Add a small amount your finished Lip Smoother to your lips and gently scrub. (We dare you if you can do this without licking your lips!)

If you have time and willpower feel free to leave the Lip Smoother on your lips for a few minutes. For maximum plumping effect try to leave on for 5 min. Rinse off with warm water and apply your favorite lip conditioner or gloss. We <3 these.

Next, pour yourself a drink…

May we suggest…..

The Blushing Valentine

blushing valentine

Makes 2 servings


  • Champagne of your choice
  • 3-6 Strawberries or raspberries – you can add more if you want 🙂
  • 2 ounces natural pomegranate juice


  1. Add 3 raspberries and 1 ounce of pomegranate juice to each champagne glass.
  2. Top with your fave bubbly. CHEERS!

Here’s a great time to pop in your favorite romantic DVD or take a relaxing bath.

Last but not least, dessert…. 

Salted Chocolate Mousse

Salted Chocolate Mousse

Makes 4 servings



  1. In a food processor (or high-speed blender), combine the avocados, 4 tablespoons of the honey, the cocoa powder, and the spices.
  2. Process until smooth. Taste the mousse, then adjust with more honey and spices to your liking.
  3. Serve topped with a sprinkle of coarse sea salt. You can serve the mousse chilled or at room temperature. Leftovers will keep covered in the fridge for a couple of days. May I suggest topping with cacao nibs or easy coconut whipped cream?
