[Date Night Approved] What to watch on #Valentine’s Day.

Whether you are single, in a relationship, male or female, we are all suckers for love. If you plan on celebrating on your own or with someone special, the movie theater is the place to be! Daniel and I recently watched a movie that he picked out AND we both liked it. SAY WHAT?! For us, that is a HUGE deal! Normally I pick out the movies and he hates them. When he picks out the movies, I hate them. It’s a miracle just in time for Valentine’s Day.


If you haven’t been to the theater for a while, like we have, then this is the movie to see. Silver Linings Handbook shows real and raw emotion. The main character’s  are the yummy Bradley Cooper and the beautiful Jennifer Lawrence. The movie is unpredictable with an unexpected ending. I’d tell you more but I personally hate when someone tells me too much. I will give you the trailer though.

 
 
What are your plans for Valentine’s Day?

Until then,

Finding the Perfect #Valentine’s Day Gift for HIM.

Valentine’s Day is around the corner! Did you get your gift yet for your significant other? This past Sunday I went up to the mall to find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for my boyfriend. I had an idea in mind when I went but wanted to check out the stores and see what was on sale. I spent a total of 7 hours there, can you believe that. I did find some great items though and I know my boyfriend will be happy with his gift.


Last week I started to pay attention to what deals were on Living Social and Groupon. I scored a great deal on Living Social for Shari’s Berries. We both  love chocolate covered strawberries. I was going to pick them up from Godiva, but this year they are a whopping 7 dollars each. I heard the price, turned right around, and walked back out. One dozen chocolate covered strawberries will run you $84.00 + tax. BANANAS! I paid $32 for Gourmet Chocolate Covered Strawberries and that paid for shipping as well.

Here’s how easy the process was:

I got the email from Living Social giving me the code to use $30.00 towards my Shari’s Berries Purchase.
I then headed over to the website to see what was available for my Valentine’s Day Festivities.

 

I found a Dozen Gourmet Dipped FANCY Strawberries on SALE! SCORE! Godiva who?
I added a cute card, because it was free and yes, we are AWEsome!
It gave me a couple of goodies to add to my cart, but I stayed strong …wishing I had added the Chocolate Dipped Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I was a new customer, so I selected the corresponding section.

If I needed them by noon, there was an available option for that, but since I leave work at 5:30 it wasn’t necessary. Email for upcoming occasions and get $5 off, yes PLEASE.

I entered in my shipping information. Then my payment and billing info.

I was given an opportunity to review my order one last time.

My order was good to go.
I got an email confirmation that my order was received.


It took me about 7 minutes from going from my email and completing the order. I saved myself money and time by not standing in the long line at Godiva. I will have fresh, Chocolate Covered Gourmet FANCY Strawberries. I will chill the wine and it will be a lovely time for me and my boyfriend.

Did you pick out your gift yet? Check out my Google + Album as I walk through my local mall, Finding the Perfect #Valentine’s Day Gift for HIM.

Until then,
PS: I’ll let you know how I like Shari’s Berries. I always see the advertising but have never ordered from them before.

Happy Valentine’s Day Week!

It’s that time of year again, where we embrace the commercialized holiday of St. Valentine.  While February 14th is no longer recognized as the day to remember Saint Valentine, the martyred saint; his name is kept alive year after year.  We fall in love with the idea of love.  We hope that on this day, the love we give away is returned.  We look forward to the gifts, the dinner, the cards and the sudden decrease of money in our wallets. We do this all with smiles on our faces! This year let’s give this ‘Valentine’s Day Industry’ a message and not buy the flowers, chocolate, jewelry and fancy dinners.  Let’s make cards out of construction paper, and bake cookies instead!  Let’s celebrate in March and tell this money-making industry ‘WE ARE NOT GOING TO LET THIS RIDICULOUS PRICE GOUGING FIASCO CONTINUE!’

Who am I kidding?  I sent my boyfriend an email with my wishlist of potential gifts on Friday; to which he laughed.  I think that gifts should come from the heart.  However, this month I have been trying to stick to not spending any cash towards items that are not absolute needs (#NoUnnecessarySpendingFebruary).  Of course, the best sales are going on, now that the winter months are almost over, so I see so many cute things and I’m like adding things to shopping carts and then abandoning them last minute.  It really is hard.  Anyways, my whole point was to give an idea on this Soulful Sunday.  Normally I would post sales going on and places to find awesome deals despite the price hikes that Valentine’s Day brings.  However I thought back to Christmas time, and the things I got or gave and I have to say that giving the gift of making memories was at the top of my list of favorites.  Last month, my boyfriend and I used one of the Christmas gift’s I got him, A Two-Hour Photography Workshop at Grand Central (NYC) with Judith from Sundays in New York.  
                               We took the train into the city and had brunch at Michael Jordan’s Restaurant in Grand Central Station.  I tried my first Bloody Mary (didn’t like it). 
We got to visit the nooks and crannies of Grand Central.  We laughed with the rest of the class as people tried to avoid the cameras.  We learned things, together.  It was an experience, a memory made to last in our book of memories.  Isn’t that what we really want anyways?  Memories to keep us warm when we’re bored in the nursing home at 93?
Simply Vera Platform Heels, Vera Wang for Kohls
Maybe I’m wrong, though :)  Comment below and let me know what you’re looking to get for Valentine’s Day, what your favorite Valentine’s gift has been thus far OR let my boyfriend know how great I look in these shoes!  
Until then,
