With Valentine’s Day coming up, I had the perfect excuse to stop by and get some supplies. Lush is a great gift store, and if you want an awesome Valentine’s day present, you might want to leave some not so subtle hints for your sweetie. I don’t have a Valentine, but why should that stop me from indulging in some delicious, calorie free, goodies.
Below are some Valentine Lush Ideas.
You can choose to buy singles items such as:
Love soap: This soap is very pretty with all its sparkles and it smells floral. I haven’t used it, but I hear it lathers well.
Magic mushroom Bubble Bar: Smells very sweet, with vanilla and strawberries. The mushroom shape may not be your typical valentine shape but it is very cute. And it does leave your skin feeling very soft, which
The ex-factor bath bomb: If you are anti-valentine or want to quietly destroy your bad bloke, then you will like this one. Break off each limb one by one and dip him in the water. Then have a sweet vanilla scented soak, and let all the bad memories melt away.
Soft Couer (The honeymooner): This adorable heart shaped massage bar, smells like love. I mean it. I fall in love every time I smell it. It smells like honey and orange but there’s another scent there that I can’t put my finger on. Maybe it’s the REAL chocolate center that it has in the middle.
Fever massage bar: This is a very seductive massage bar. A combination or rose, jasmine, sandalwood and cocoa help to set the mood for you on valentine’s day.
You can also choose a gift set.
Be mine gift set. This is the one I ended up buying and it may be the best gift I’ve bought for myself this month. This pack comes with the flying fox shower gel (which smells so calming), honey trap lip balm (makes you kissable), and soft couer (so sensual). I found buying the gift set to be a better bargain then buying individual pieces.
Lush has other valentine gift ideas on their website. Even if you’re anti-valentine, you’ll find something to fall in love with.

I had several of those moments this month. My mouth fell open, my heart started racing, and I was lost for words that's when I knew...I wanted to spend the rest of my life with it. I would make all the items below my Valentine.
Laurie Zip Cutout Pump - WHITE (5)
It was actually the black ones I fell in love with, but they're sold out. Regardless, it is one hot shoe! Bebe always has an item that I can't get over. Even after I buy them, I still can't believe it's mine. Besides the cool look of the shoe, I love that they're easy to walk in. I rarely buy heels because 3 seconds after putting them on I fall over, but I'm still standing tall with these.
This bag took my breath away. I love the safety pin detail.
The Marne Trench
This wasn't a "isn't that pretty" moment. It was a "Where have you been all my life!!!" moment. I love the color, the buttons, the glove length sleeves, the funnel neck...I love this coat.
Timed Race Watch Necklace
I love multipurpose items, and this one had me smiling in satisfaction. I love the swivel handlebars and the kickstand that lets you prop the bike on your nightstand.
So classic, so beautiful, so darn expensive! I got shot in the heart with envy when I saw this bag and the price. It was like seeing the guy you've always wanted and then seeing his perfect girlfriend. I wanted shed tears as I realized we would never be together, because common sense doesn't allow me to spend $2, 380
on a bag. But if I ever nab a rich man, he can forget the engagement ring and buy me that bag.
Well that was my list...for now. Please share a shopping story about an item that you loved at first sight.

I think my heat did a somersault when I show these shoes. Then it broke in a million pieces when I learned they were sold out.
Alexander McQueen Crocodile heart shaped peep toe shoes
Hot Pink Heart Sneakers-Customized shoes
Betsey Johnson Heart Shaped Charm Earrings
It was like being shot in the heart with accessory love when I saw this. Love the clear light pink glass used on this cellphone charm. I'd attach it my key chain if I had it.
This yummy necklace, features REAL red, white and pink sprinkles poured into the necklace. Talk about a sweet-heart!
I had to do my own version of an evil laugh when I saw this. For those that believe Valentine's Day is a time to be just as naughty as they are nice, you'll love this.
14k Yellow Gold Lab-Created Ruby Heart Devil Pendant w/ Diamond Accent, 18"
Kind of a little bit in love with this ring. The heart shaped charm moves freely as you move your hand.
Alright I know this falls under home accessories, but it's still an accessory. Besides, after getting all dolled up for her Valentine, a girl needs to make sure she looks perfect and what better way than with this funky heart mirror. I absolutely hate mirrors but I heart this one.

Majority come for etsy but a couple are from other sites.
lulu guinness double kiss mini frame purse
If you can spare the change, you can get yourself a very cute coin purse. Lulu guinness often has fun items like the one above.The only downside is price.
I am a fan of vintage bags and this one from a seller on etsy.com is very cute. I would use it as a carry bag for my bento box. It would be cute to have a mini picnic for two with this bag as the "basket."
I like the simplicity of this bracelet. One could wear it way after valentine's day.
This is a colorful way to dress up your valentine outfit. It's not too bold and I like that, but it has enough about it to make it interesting. It's something that worn, people's eyes would go to. I mean who wouldn't look at it, it's full of kisses.
Possibly one of my favorite items is this one. Can love get any more simple.Also, knowing there's only one makes it even more special.
This is the item that gave me the inspiration for this post. I think this would make a great valentine's day gift for anyone who likes unique jewelry.
I immediately thought of those ski bunnies when I saw this hat. Even though it's black, the pink kiss adds some flirtatious spice to the drab winter season.

Sorry ladies, hot guy in trench coat is not available in my store--neither is the passionate moment.
Pretty in Pink
umm...I'm not actually looking at the clothes.

I've chosen a simple white trench for this article; please note, this is not the one my subscriber is wearing.
1. Black and white. You can do a classic black and white theme with your trench coat. This is not only fool proof, it's appropriate.
