Nothing says adorable quite like breakfast in bed on February 14. Make the gesture twice as sweet by serving Diamonds for Breakfast candle fragrances along with warm croissants, juicy melons, luscious mimosas, and aromatic coffee. The Bailey Estate candle collections are made with the finest blend of luxurious fragrances and the best refined soy, hand poured into a recycled glass and wrapped in vintage lace, pinned with a lovely note card with tales of HB’s lavish love affairs from which the collection is inspired. These romantic candles are gently placed in an elegant black box and tied with a beautiful rich satin bow.
For Valentine’s Day, what better way to pamper than with a little bling in your beauty products. Surprisingly, one substance — GOLD — is now popping up in an increasing number of beauty and skincare lines, and for good reason. With more and more beauty products being sought after for their high levels of antioxidants, the anti-inflammatory benefits of gold can result in luminous and gorgeous skin.

Finally, apply Soothing Foot Cream formulated with a blend of shea butter, aloe, white tea, and peppermint, along with vitamin filled oils to deliver hydration without greasiness, and keep feet free from rough, cracked skin.
