Cupid is definitely not stupid this month. He’s got great style and, of course, knows where to go. By coincidence, so do we!
Even the toughest Valentine’s Day cynic will find something to love about these event picks. For the shopper, check out Union Market’s Valentine’s Day Pop Ups including Union Kitchen’s DreamBites and Mallory Shelter Jewelry . Every Saturday in February, perfume lovers can join NOVA’s first niche perfumery, Arielle Shoshana, in the Mosaic District and meet the founder herself at their luxury workshops series. Music lovers can enjoy the Heartbreak Hotel at POV Live at the W Hotel, and singles and couples alike can indulge in Valentine’s Day weekend concerts at Howard Theatre . For a party that promises to be anything but “boring,” check out QLIKD’s Not Another Boring Valentine’s Day at Jack Rose Saloon. QLIKD party lovers can enjoy a Whistle Pig complimentary cocktail, Split car service, and “special activation” by Three Day Rule . Win wins all around, right?
Love is in the air in the gift department this month and there is no shortage of ideas for all of your significant others! For him, I’m eyeing the sleek Slim Bifold Wallet from Shinola (top picture); for the sexy outdoorsman there’s Filson's Bridle Leather Flask; for the man on the go there’s the W&P Design Carry on Moscow Mule Kit (pictured, available at South Moon Under); and The Art of Shaving The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave Carry On (available at Sephora). For her, you can’t go wrong with one of my personal beauty “obsessions,” NARS Magnificent Obsession Red Lip Set (pictured, available at Blue Mercury); no fashionista can resist the classic look of the Shinola Birdy 34mm Watch in Rose Gold; add some sparkle with Lou & Grey's Mineralogy Pewter Earrings in White, designed by jeweler Theresa Cowan; and for the curly girl, the Bed Head Curlipops™ 1875 Watt Diffuser Dryer (bottom picture, available at Ulta) has two heat levels and speeds for styling flexibility and a cold shot button to set the style. For bffs, nothing says love like chocolate!! So show your love with Centrolina’s chocolate truffles, handcrafted by pastry chef, Jennifer Costa, in a variety of flavors like pistachio, hazelnut, and passionfruit. And there will be many cheers for Co Co. Champagne Truffles, available at Co Co. Sala at Union Market.
Speaking of love, we are loving our social calendar this month filled with many more parties and events!
