Happy Valentine's Day


Today is Valentine's Day, and if you are like me, you have pretty much resolved not to do anything above and beyond. (Hello, it's Wednesday, it's a school night!) But I saw a few inexpensive on Good Morning America (basically, the show I have decided to base my life off of) to romance your home. Some of the great ideas are according to our senses:

Touch: Make your own faux fur pillows by covering your own outdated throw pillows with faux fur and fabric glue. (No sewing necessary!)

Create affirmation pillows by taking silk pillows and writing words like "passion" and "romance" with a black marker.

Smell: Create your own diffuser by using a little bit of rubbing alcohol and an essential oil like lavender, vanilla, or musk; then use kabob skewers to radiate the scent throughout your home.(P.S. Vanilla is said to be the number 1 fragrance a man is drawn to!)

Sight: Create your own romantic or inspirational candle holders by taking a glass vase and write words such as "love" and "passion" in crayon.

Sound: Turn on music instead of the TV. Music is said to especially relax women.

Of course, if you prefer, you can purchase many of these items such as the diffuser at West Elm (featured above; $24.00)and the faux fur pillows at Bedbathandbeyond.com (featured above: $19.99).
