Just moments ago, it seemed that February had just begun and now, Valentine's Day is next weekend...where does the time go? 

In light of this occasion, I am thrilled to extend a comprehensive Valentine's Day Gift Guide, positively brimming over with skincare and beauty suggestions in every category...hope you find something that you adore!

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and Jethro-centric images as well as the Bottom Line...

Happy Valentine's Day from Jethro + me. 
Skincare on the go.

Toss one in your handbag!

It's like having a spa at home.

It's all in the details.
All about eyes.

Lips for days.
Key accessories.
IX.  ACCESSORIES
  • Ash Dean Camo Wedge Sneaker: I picked these camo gems up on a whim and love their hidden wedge and unique color combination.  Entirely comfortable, I am treating them like a neutral (like leopard) and wearing them with everything.  Highly recommended!
  • *Saint Laurent Paris Cosmetics Bag (reviewed HERE...more affordable option HERE)
  • *Mujjo 80 Degree iPhone 6 Case (alternate shade reviewed HERE)...sleek and durable, this brilliant phone case features a diagonal slot for easy card carrying.  It's all one needs in a phone case!
Ash Dean Camo Tennies.
Tiny touches make all the difference.
By the way, it's currently 80 degrees in CA...unereal.

Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this Valentine's Gift Guide extravaganza and would love to hear what has caught YOUR eye!

Good things ahead, including another Tom Ford eyeshadow closeup, a Rodial beauty feature, a cleansing routine closeup and a host of new product procurements!

Also, as aforementioned...SAVE the DATE //  I am excited to announce that I will be hosting the Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills Project Beauty on Saturday, February 27th!  The free event, which features a cavalcade of new spring beauty as well as sips and snacks and an array of beauty and skincare brand experts, will begin at 11 AM! If you are a Southern CA local (or will happen to be in the area at the time), please plan on attending...it would be wonderful to meet you in person.
