On Friday, I wrote a cocktail post called “Love Stinks, So Let’s Drink.” While at least once every few weeks I do believe that quite passionately, Valentine’s Day is so much fun to celebrate. Pink, red, hearts, Cupid, chocolate … choc-o-late — love is truly in the air right now, along with my appetite. Whether you’re a V-Day cynic or counting down the days until February 14th, we have all the crafts, recipes and design ideas you need to get ready for the sexiest holiday of the year.
We’ve all been there: that awkward moment when you like/love someone but you don’t know how to tell them. The. Worst. That’s what handmade cards are for, and card-making parties filled with friends to talk you through it.
Top off the night with an adult beverage or three. These concoctions are the perfect pairing with our sweet treats.
We’re not trying to boast, but we know for a fact that we have the hottest guys on TV. I mean, just look at Kitchen Cousins’ Anthony and John without drooling. Uhm, guys — my sink is broken. Also, my toilet. And my shower.
Our friends at TravelChannel.com put together a killer list of the most romantic getaways in the world. If these spots don’t scream l-o-v-e, then I don’t know what does. [Koh Tao, Thailand, above, is my top pick.]
If escaping to the Maldives or Hawaii isn’t in the near future, then turn your master suite into a romantic getaway. Staying home can be just as much of a vacation.
