February, we love to love you. With Valentine’s Day and each week this month devoted to featuring a local wedding, we have themed our SB FINDS for February around this notion of love. We love pink and red, we love getting pretty, we love pretty things for our home and pretty things to wear.
Makeup and jewelry cases
Spartina offers some very uplifting messages on their makeup and jewelry cases for the season. With notions such as “love hoo you are” and “let the sparks fly,” you can’t help but get in the Valentine’s spirit while putting on that red lipstick or sparkly earrings. The makeup cases are $29 and the jewelry cases are $35 at Apricot Lane.
Pink? Check. Sparkly? Check. Fits everything you need for the night? Check. Get a load of this hot pink felt clutch with black crystals made by Shiraleah and sold for $62 at Dress & Dwell in New Albany, IN. We have a feeling you will want to carry this for more than just Valentine’s Day dinner…
Weekend duffel bag
Getting away somewhere romantic for the weekend? Or maybe just exiting the snow and cold for a little sun and warmth? This medium-size duffel bag is made of sailcloth and is in the perfect Nantucket red with navy trim. Find it at J. McLaughlin for $245.
It became abundantly clear that the ears are a major priority for warmth during the last snow. Monkee’s has these adorable, knit, ear warmer headbands that have fuzzy warmth inside and cute knit outside. We suggest you buy more than one to match all of your outfits. They retail for $28 each.
We know Kentucky has the key to your heart, so let’s also give it the keys to your car, too, in a manner of speaking. At $24, these leather, wristband key chains from Work the Metal are a great gift idea for a loved one or yourself.
Eyelash lengthening serum
We didn’t believe it until we saw it. This stuff works, for real. The girls at Clique Waxing Boutique and our own sales manager, Meghan Tinker, are all using it, and their eyelashes are hitting their eyebrows. Apply like a liquid liner on your lash line each night to see best results. The solution is irritant-free and won’t cause dark circles and redness on your lash line. The Grande Lash Eyelash Formula is $70 for a three-month supply. Sold at Clique Waxing Boutique
Why is a blowout bar selling bedding? Because there are lots of tricks to making your blowout last longer, and this is a really smart one. Cotton pillowcases cause your hair to break. Satin pillowcases are softer, making them softer on your hair. By using the pillowcase, hair maintains its sleek, healthy shine and extends the life of your beautiful hairstyle. This pillowcase is $19 and is sold at Primp Style Lounge.
Goat’s milk soap
We found these wonderful smelling goat’s milk soaps on our journey to New Albany, IN, at a great little store called True North. The picture of the baby goats next to these soaps sealed the deal for us. It’s nice to know where your beauty products really come from, right? These are $10 each and come in great scents, such as cherry almond or peppermint. $8 each
Men’s cashmere blend sweater
Don’t neglect your man on Valentine’s Day! These soft pink, cashmere blend, quarter-zip sweaters by Peter Millar are a great gift for your sweetie that he can wear all through the winter. Real men wear pink, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise! These are $145 at The Fashion Post.
Along that same vein of clothing for your man, try a red-and-white gingham shirt, too. Now I would not advise wearing this shirt with the above pink sweater, but it is a great year-round, button-down shirt. This shirt is available in many colors at The Shirt Shop for $89.50.
We just love a good, old-fashioned, slicker raincoat, and in bright red, no less! This shiny little something is obviously impervious to weather and so eye-catching, as well. Available at Clay & Cotton for $198
Pop open the bubbly! But first be sure that you are serving it on an appropriate platter. These trays for Dom Perignon and Veuve are a great piece of decor for your bar or for anywhere you want to feel festive. Champagne NOT included, these are sold at Lee W. Robinson Company for $110 each.
We’re always mad for plaid, and this plaid throw at Digs is soft and warm. And did we mention perfect for snuggling up on the couch? Made by Faribault Woolen Mill, which is more than 150 years old and located in Minnesota, this throw is made from remnant repurposed yarn. $195
Made from reclaimed mango wood, this wine bucket has a metal lining to keep your favorite vino cold. Might want to buy the Champagne trays above to accompany it so that you can serve your wine and then chill it. This is from Merridian and retails for $52.
“Live, Love, Laugh” is the simple yet inspirational message on these heart trays. They are small and can be used to hold jewelry or other small items. Or leave them bare to hold nothing but your loving thoughts. Sold at Celebrations for $12.50 each
Salt and pepper shakers
These endearing little red piggies could be a constant companion to you on your dinner table. They are salt and pepper shakers, ready to season all of your food with love. Find them at Louisville Stoneware for $45 for the set.
For your chilled wine or nice bourbon cocktail, these beautiful fleur de lis glasses from … Fleur de Lis (isn’t that cute?) are a tasteful way to toast. They’re $12 each, for both the wine glasses and the double old fashioneds.
Called a Woodman’s Wreath, this wreath made of tree bark would be a stunning, yet simple, addition to your front door. It’s sold at Madhouse in New Albany, IN, for $49.99.
Whether you are the bride, the groom, a Mr. or a Mrs., there is a sign for you. These black wooden signs can help you with your identity during this wedding season, and they can stand up or be hung. Available at the Urban Farmhouse Market for $25 each
Need a great gift to give the bride or mother of the bride? This one is so practical and can be used immediately. Stash your wedding papers, makeup, change of clothes or whatever your pretty heart desires. These are sold at Something Blue, which knows a thing or two about wedding accessories, for $10 each.
Here’s to love! Happy shopping!
