Valentine’s Day Gift Guide Vol. 2

Love is…romance, pleasure, desire, friendship, laughter, bliss. Love is many things, but love is also your passion, your personal style, and the things that have the uncanny ability to make you smile. Love makes you walk a little taller, like a power-giving pump, finished in femininity and strength. It’s a timeless shoulder bag that makes you feel like a celebrity, a delicate scarf worthy of Grace Kelly, a playful red tote that reminds you of the freedom of a weekend away. Or it’s a piece of gold jewelry, simple and heart-shaped, that you carry everywhere, reminding you of the love that surrounds you every day.
