Hello, Thank you for the engaging post. I love valentines day, and I was thinking of a great idea to spend the day with my mom. I saw the spa day for two people at Rena Spa at NYX Hotel London Holborn, and It’s perfect. My mom has been through a lot lately, and she needs some pampering time to relax. I’m booking right away
I visited the Noble Isle store and fell in love with their limited edition BATHE BY CANDELIGHT set. I ordered it for my best friend for valentine’s day. It arrived today; the valentine’s box in rose pink looks luxurious and lovely. I love how it smells, t it’s fresh and a little bit sweet but not too strong. Thank you for sharing this.
I was concerned about the Lime & Cucumber scent in the Tan Extender exfoliating body gel when I ordered it. However, it has a pleasant fragrance; I enjoy using this gel under the shower; it leaves my skin smelling good, and it feels moisturized. I highly recommend it.
I just ordered the Romantic Date Night Hamper for Valentine’s Day. You have the best gift guides online. I always check your site before getting any gifts for my loved ones. You have unique ideas; I salute you; keep up the excellent work.
I love Crosstown sweets; they have so many flavors they have vegan and non-vegan donuts. I’ve been buying these donuts for a while now, and they are still tasty. My favorite is the peanut butter and blackcurrant one; I enjoy it with my morning coffee.
Helle Rene, I was struggling to pick up a gift for my boyfriend that makes him feel valued, loved, and appreciated for everything he does for me and our relationship. I had no idea what I was going to get him. This gift guide helped a lot; Thank you.
