Polished Picks – Pamper Yourself

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! This day is all about love, but sometimes we focus so much on loving others that we forget to love ourselves. You may be planning to treat your significant other today, but you should also make plans to PAMPER YOURSELF. Order your favorite dessert, take a long bath, or curl up with a cozy blanket and a good book. Here are a few things to get you inspired for your own little pamper party (which you should have at least once a week)!

Red Polka Dot Dress for Valentine’s Day

It doesn’t happen often, but every once in a while I find a bold-colored piece that I can’t pass up. When I came across this gorgeous red polka dot dress, I fell head over heels in love! Valentine’s Day is just a few days away, and this would be the perfect dress to wear for date night (or even a V-Day brunch).

Since bold colors are not typically my aesthetic, you know I had to add in some neutral accessories! This oh-so-feminine Kate Spade crossbody bag is the perfect size for carrying date night essentials (plus, it’s 33% off right now!). I usually like to carry a clutch when I wear a dress, but I really like the way this crossbody draws the eye even more to the ruffles and square neckline. They may be a bit hard to see in these photos, but my XO earrings always come out this time of year. I just noticed they also have a pave version that I’m pretty sure I need!

Basically, this outfit has all the elements that make me happy: polka dots, ruffles, pleats, and bows. It’s super wearable beyond Valentine’s Day as well. The lightweight chiffon fabric makes it the perfect dress to wear throughout spring and summer. Pair it with a fitted denim jacket on chilly spring evenings!

Looking for something a bit shorter and sassier? This dress is adorable and under $40! I also really like this knot front dress that’s on sale for $22.

3 Unique Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

This post is sponsored by Babbleboxx.com. As always, all opinions are my own.

Love is in the air! With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, time is running out to find that perfect gift for the guy or gal in your life. Sure, there’s always chocolates and flowers, but those options don’t exactly scream “unique”. I struggle every year to come up with new and exciting gift ideas, but my friends at Babbleboxx always come through! They recently sent me these three fabulous products to try out, and each of them would make a great Valentine’s Day gift for the ladies on your list this year.

Everyone deserves to have a fancy pen at least once in their lives, and this is definitely the one to get. I used to think that “a pen is a pen”, but now I know better! The Cross Century II Pearlescent White Lacquer Rollerball Pen is an absolute dream to write with. The gel ink flows so smoothly and dries super fast! The white lacquer and polished rose gold finish give the pen an elegant and timeless look. Luxury pens like this one make such classy gifts, especially if the recipient is a business professional that takes pride in their desk-cessories.

I was so excited about these Zenni eyeglasses when they arrived! Not only are they super stylish, they also have Blokz™ blue light blocking lenses. Anyone else guilty of staring at your computer and phone screens all day long? Wearing these glasses will actually protect your eyes from harmful blue light emitted from digital devices. No more irritated eyes! Since self care is one of my main priorities for 2019, this is just another step towards that goal. I also love their red heart-shaped glasses (with 80% gray sunglass tint). Talk about the perfect Valentine’s Day gift!

Watches are always fun to get as a gift! The G-SHOCK S Series Watch by Casio is part of their “Military Chic” collection. It has a sportswear-inspired design, which would be perfect for the sporty yet stylish gal in your life. The rose gold mirrored face adds a feminine touch, but doesn’t take away from its overall toughness. With 200M water resistance and shock resistance, it has everything you could possibly want in a sports watch.

How are you planning to spend Valentine’s Day? Are you giving something unique as a Valentine’s Day gift this year, or do you have any go-to gifts that are always a hit? Let me know in the comments!


Polished Picks – Blush and Ivory

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! This week’s Polished Picks are all about these pretty shades of blush and ivory. These delicate, feminine pieces will make you feel like spring has already sprung! Punxsutawney Phil said we’ll be getting an early spring this year, so we might as well help it along, right? A few of my favorites from this week’s blush and ivory roundup are this darling wicker bag and this oh-so-chic Christian Louboutin nail polish. How gorgeous would that look sitting out on your vanity? (Assuming you’re not clumsy like me and won’t knock it over!)

This Razor Delivery Subscription Will Change Your Shaving Game

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Gillette Venus. The opinions and text are all mine.

I have always been a sucker for subscription boxes and delivery services, but I will admit they are not always practical. Oftentimes, the excitement of getting a fun package in the mail is what draws me in, but a lot of what I get goes unused. One subscription service I can 100% get behind is the new razor delivery subscription from Gillette Venus Direct! I love knowing that I will actually use the customized razors that arrive on my preferred schedule, and I think you guys will enjoy it too!

Gillette Venus Razor Delivery


The main thing I love about the Gillette Venus Razor delivery service is that it’s super convenient and gives me one less thing to worry about. I have been known to use my razors much longer than I should (usually resulting in razor burn). This is almost always because I am on my last one and don’t want to take the time to run to the store. With the Venus Razor delivery service, I never have to worry about running out! You can build your shave plan in just three easy steps: pick your blade, pick your handle, and choose your delivery frequency. It’s super simple, fast, and FREE.

Gillette Venus Razor Delivery


The Venus Razors are completely customizable based on your skin needs and overall preference. Choose between 4 different handles (Original, Extra Smooth, Swirl, Platinum) and 4 different blades (Original, Extra Smooth, White Tea, Olay Moisture). The best part? All 4 blades will fit all 4 handles, so you can mix and match the handles and blades as you please! The one pictured here in my box is the Platinum handle with White Tea blades. I’ve never had a smoother shave in my life, and my legs feel so moisturized afterwards!

This phrase is music to my ears because it’s not always easy to come by. A lot of times you get what you pay for, and that means having to choose between quality and affordability. That’s not the case with Venus Razors! Gillette is the number one female shaving brand in the world, and a big reason for this is because their blades are designed specifically for how women shave. I am proud to say that I have used Gillette razors exclusively for over 20 years and they have never let me down!

You may not immediately associate the word fun with shaving, but let’s be honest, it IS fun to get mail! The customization process is fun as well, with so many different combos to try out. The razors arrive in adorable packaging, which is just icing on the cake!

If you’re ready to take your shaving game to the next level, get started with your own Gillette Venus Razor subscription. I would love to hear what you guys think!
