Valentine's Day Beauty to Heart

 In honor of cupid’s big day, we pulled together a list of pink, red and girly all over beauty goodies. Products that exude XOXO. Because if there’s one thing we heart, it’s beauty. Forget the roses and the chocolates, we like these kinds of presents.

Leila Lou Eau de Parfum –  Somehow this scent by Rosie Jane manages to capture the innocence of Valentine’s Days past. So fresh and girly!

EOS Berry Blossom Hand Lotion – We seriously love this pocket-sized, berry-scented lotion with shea butter, oat extract and plenty of vitamin E.

LUSH A Million Kisses – The intense scarlet stain resembles that of lips that have been nonstop smooching for days upon days. The addition of rosehip oil (first ingredient listed!) gives it an appropriate cupid scent.

Beauty Secrets Tweezers –What’s not to love about these at $1.49 each from Sally Beauty? They resemble Tweezerman for a smidge of the price!

What’s on your Valentine’s Day wishlist?

It’s here….the Leila Lou Eau de Parfum. The fresh fragrance we all know and looove by Rosie Jane is now available in a lighter version of the Leila Lou scented oil. Look for familiar notes of pear, fresh cut grass and tangerine.

Rosie Jane Leila Lou Perfume


Rosie Jane is introducing her first fragrance this month. Inspired by the birth of her daughter Leila, she wanted something to instantly make her feel fresh and clean so she created Leila Lou.

Leila Lou features notes of nectarine, pear, jasmine, vanilla, cotton and musk. From the moment I put on Leila Lou, all I could think about was the pear note I smelled in the opening. If you love pears, you would love how this perfume opens. It’s sweet and mouth watering like biting into a juicy ripe pear. Perhaps a little too sweet at first but that doesn’t last long. Soon you’re into the middle of the fragrance and you’re left with a fruity floral with the nectarine and pear mingling together. Then finally towards the end of the wear, all you smell is clean… just as Rosie Jane intended. The cotton note carries it through to the end of the wear with a hint of vanilla and musk.

Rosie Jane’s  Leila Lou also appeals to the frugalista in us all with a “Give Back” program. If you return 3 empty bottles, you will get your next bottle free!

If you’re a fruity floral gal, this perfume is for you. My only wish was that I had heard about it sooner. 🙂 When I was searching for a summer fragrance a few months ago, this would have been perfect. At least when the weather is getting to me, I can put this on and pretend it’s summer.
