When it comes to relationships, the most important relationship in your life will always be the one with yourself. Sure, it may sound corny, but for a good reason. When we take the time to honor your needs and wants through self love and self care, we’re automatically better partners, parents and friends.
So regardless if you’re flying solo or are boo’d up come February 14, you should take the time to celebrate you by buying a nice Valentine’s Day gift for yourself.
If you know anything about me, you know I don’t need an excuse to buy myself something pink and girly.
But, in case you need an excuse– it’s Valentine’s Day!

One of my shopping rules is– if I’m going to buy a luxury item, it must be something I’ll use/wear often if not daily. This means a lot of my luxe purchases are more “quiet luxury”, nothing too trendy or loud. I want to stay in love with my luxury items forever, if possible.
This CeCe Olisa New York Spiral CeCe Olisa New York”Don’t Wait on Your Weight” Notebook is small enough to carry anywhere– I love having a pen and paper to jot down thoughts and ideas wherever I am. My Cut & Clarity Mini Name Plate Necklace is part of my OOTD every single day. I love how delicate, yet eye-catching it is. I get so many compliments on it. (use code “CECE” for 10% off). If you find the standard apple watch straps to be boring, this Coach Apple Watch Strap is a sweet update to your daily tech gear. A chic little wallet always gives me a little thrill, use this Saint Laurent Monogram Leather Card Case as intended or as an on-the-go wallet when you want to travel light.
If you’re like me and love a signature beauty routine, here are a few pages from mine. I’ve been on a journey to find the perfect red nail polish, sometime last year I landed on OPI Nail Lacquer, “Big Apple Red” and I never looked back. I get an OPI Big apple red manicure every week and I keep a bottle in my suitcase for quick touch-ups while traveling. After trying a few of the new fragrances, I always come back to Viktor&Rolf, Flowerbomb. Flowerbomb pairs very well layered with the signature scent of Cocoa by CeCe, Doll Butter, if you like having touchable soft legs Doll Butter will get you there. The Chanel Ultra Hydrating Lipstick, “Suzanne” is a beautiful dusty rose that works as a “nude” lipstick for my dolls with deep/dark complexions.
It’s hard to choose between coffee or tea in the morning– either way this CeCe Olisa New York “Don’t Wait on Your Weight” Coffee Mug will give you your morning confidence boost. For my java-drinking dolls, this Stanley Classic Stay Hot French Press helps keep my coffee warm much longer than a traditional glass french press. I got this Nespresso Aeroccinno3 Milk Frother for Christmas and I just love having warm frothy oatmilk lattes at home with the push of a button.
Of course, the biggest luxuries in life don’t have a price tag. On your journey to self-love, be sure to invest in the things that truly matter. Did anything in this list catch your eye? Let me know in the comments!
