Glammed Valentine's Day

There is no denying, I love love. This may be where my love for Valentine's comes from, and if you have been following my blog the last 2 years then you've heard my rants about just how close to my heart I hold this day. I know, I know, "totally a Hallmark holiday", "You should show love everyday not just on Valentine's" & "you only like it when you are in a relationship". Nope, not this gal! Even those years when I was solo I celebrated in true Galentine's fashion, still celebrating the love I had for my girls. I'll say it again, I love love! 

So, we've established the fact I am totally sold on this made up holiday which means I start planning as soon as the New Years ball drops. If you read my last post you know we decided to forgo the busy restaurants and cook at home last year. Which meant this year I was itching to get all dolled up and show my Valentine off to everyone, even if it meant we had 3:00pm reservation and would be sitting elbow to elbow {seen the movie Valentine's Day? Totally just like that!}. If I could convince my honey to actually dress up -- which happens a grand total of 3 times a year -- I knew I had to bring my A game. 

And, that A game was totally brought after a glam day at Vantiy Belle Boutique! I had my outfit picked out for our date night but left my hair and makeup in the hands of the adorable and talented girls at Vanity Belle. The salon was busy with bridal parties {who got to take advantage of the adorable Bridal Suite, I mean check out that wall art!}, girls also glamming for their men, and even some ladies who were about to take the stage for some America's Got Talent auditions. It was so fun to see and hear everyone discussing why today was their special day to treat themselves, all while we sipped champagne and got 'prettified'

If you are in the Orange County area {or just coming for a visit to take advantage of this February 90 degree weather} a stop into Vanity Belle Boutique is a So Cal must! A date night, fun glam day with your girls, or even to celebrate a birthday, bride, or just the awesome you, I promise you'll leave feeling like you need a tiara on your newly curled head! 
After a day of glamming {and just a few glasses of Champagne} I rushed home to show off my look to my Valentine, who couldn't take his eyes of me, and put on my date night attire. A flirty mix of stripes and florals for our 90 degree Valentine here in So Cal. We ate seafood while overlooking the ocean and sipping on our cocktails. How did you spend your love day?
