ALONE THIS VALENTINE? TREAT YOURSELF!

February 14, 2011

I wrote a post for all of you in a commited relationship to find the best romantic spots to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but I forgot the single human beings – like myself. If nobody is treating you with love, cards or gifts, you have to buy yourself something very tempting. That is: a Diptyque Paris candle. Pictured is their Valentine’s edition, but you can only buy it in New York ($ 78). But they have a lot of other scents to choose from.
