Get ready for Valentine's Day

It's just around the corner, dolls - you can't miss the red balloons or the oversized greeting cards. I'm talking about Valentine's day, *If you didn't already figure out by my humongous hints* the day when you can unapologetically walk around toting a large teddy bear and not be eyeballed. I've always believed that Valentines isn't just meant for your significant other but for your mom, your sibling, your grandfather, you best buddy or anyone that you treasure having in your life.

So before the day of love appears this weekend, here's how you can get prepped for it.

  •  Clothing:

This year, I'm shunning red and pink tones and am gravitating towards heart prints and motifs since I find them to be cute and appropriate for the day without being over-the-top. I've worn hearts on Style File numerous times so you can always take a page out of my book if you decide to go for it.

  • Inner wear:
If you don't love yourself, how are you supposed to love others! That being said, show yourself a little love with some pretty lingerie and inner wear from Enamor in lacy fabrics and hues of red and pink.

  • Jewellery:
Your choice of jewellery can help form the rest of your look. You can keep it classy with platinum jewellery, in the form of a sweet pendant or an extravagant ring. Platinum is an amazing choice since it is pure, rare as compared to other metals and is eternals as it keeps it white colour for a lifetime and doesn't tarnish.

Or if you want to play it fun and flirty, you can do by trying out some quirky bracelets and brooches with cute love related typography designs.

For your third choice, you could try a piece or two from Swarovski's Valentine collection which combines some trendy touches and classic shapes in rhodium and crystal.

  • Beauty:
So neck down, you're all set to sashay out of the door. Neck up, it's time to get to work. The most obvious point is to stick to tones of red and pink in your look. And whether you're putting on a bold lip to glossy one, pink is a daytime favorite with it's light, flirty charm.

For a more glamourous touch, a striking red pout will never, ever fail. Try a deeper burgundy shade if you're feeling more adventurous.

In addition to your luscious lips, don't forget to prep your cheeks with a fresh pink and the rest of your body with a lip-smacking body butter.

  • Accessories:
Even if you keep the rest of your look as you would on any other day, your accessories can help to spice it up just a little bit more.

  • The ambiance:
While you may be gorgeous and raring to go, make sure the ambiance is as well! If you're spending your day out on the town, then you needn't be bothered but if you've got plans for a candlelit dinner with a homecooked meal, make sure you've got a comforting and cozy vibe going on with some adorable handmade paper garlands and a pretty bedspread.
