Valentine's Day extravaganza!

Yes, 'tis nearly Valentine's Day and Bailey the cockapoo is going to be my Valentine this year.  I love a good aul themed post and while I'll be laying low on Thursday, it doesn't stop me from fawning over all things Valentine-y.  I've made some collages of my favourite love inspired bits for your enjoyment, so here we go!

Make up first.  There are some lovely Love themed make up collections on counters now and I've assembled my favourites for your perusal.  The Lancome In Love collection is so pretty and feminine and if you're someone who likes all things pink and girlie, then definitely check it out.  I've blogged about the Smashbox Love Me collection here, so check it out for more details.  It's edgy and after playing with some of the pieces a bit, I can tell you that they're joyfully pigmented!  Finally, Lush has some Valentine-esque Liquid Lips from the Emotional Brilliance range; Charm, Strong and Passionate, depending on your mood eh?

Look Lovely

If you want to send the hint to your significant other regarding a possible jewellery purchase, then look no further than here.  One of our favourite shops is Loulerie on Chatham Street in Dublin and there was lots of love for Joanne's rose gold bracelet I bought her for Christmas.  Check out these absolutely stunning pieces that have my name all over them.  Seriously.  Click to see the bigger photo and you'll see Karen etched on each piece.  (I wish). 

1. Miss Havisham New Wave earrings €145 | 2.  Miss Havisham New Wave bracelet €185
3. Lucite Ophelia earrings €235 | 4. Open Heart Necklace by Willow and Clo €95
5. Aurora large stud earrings by Gorjana €52 | 6. Miss Havisham earrings €245
7. Lucite Ophelia bracelet €355 | 8. Lucite Ophelia cuff €260

If you're one for pendants like myself, then Thomas Sabo has some stunning ones that made me go ooh when they came into my inbox.  

1. Rose gold chain with rose gold cut out & silver bird pendant €356
2. Yellow gold necklace with yellow gold hand of Fatima pendant €309
3. Sterling silver pendant with mother of pearl and syn. zirconia €498
4. Chain with carrier €63, Apple/arrow heart charm €79, Intertwined hearts charm €55

Seriously, I want all the jewelery and make up.  I need to monetise Bailey's blog so he can earn me a few bob so I can buy some of these gorgeous finds!  

Happy Valentine's Day from Lovely Girlie Bits!
