  Vancouver Candle Co .  Mount Pleasant Candle , $38, https://www.vancouvercandleco.com/   This candle has hints of fig, bergamot and anise and is my favourite candle in rotation at the moment. Even the box is perfect for Valentine's Day with its red decor. Each candle is handmade with premium soy wax and has a 60hr burn.

  For Love and Lemons,   Elsa Strappy Lace Bra, $131, Elsa Strappy Panty, $117,  http://www.forloveandlemons.com/  Because nothing says Valentine's Day quite like a sexy, red lingerie set.  For Love and Lemons  has been a favourite of mine for some time now, (even if this love affair is mostly over Instagram) and this pair is definitely something to long for. However, if this price point is a little high for you, check out  La Senza  for similar styles with a much lower price point.

  Butter London,   Chancer,  $15, http://butterlondon.ca/  If you're like me, I won't be wearing red on Valentine's Day, however, I love a red nail. This red nail polish with its metallic finish is the perfect colour for that Valentine's manicure.  Butter London  is my favourite nail polish brand, its products are not tested on animals and free from all those horrible chemicals found in other nail polish brands. They can be found at Hudson Bay and lots of little unique boutiques around Victoria.

  NARS   Velvet Lip Glide,   Danceteria,  $26, http://www.sephora.com/velvet-lip-glide-P412131  A pink lip for Valentine's Day is fun and flirty and a change from the typical red lip. This lip gloss is so much more, rather a lipstick in a gloss form. It glides on soft, but lasts and has a semi-matte finish to it, making it closer to a lipstick rather than a gloss. I know I'll be wearing mine for the special day.
