When you’re on the road, chocolate and roses just won’t cut it!
Just because you’re on a site that caters to single girls doesn’t mean you won’t have a Valentine. An ex-boyfriend might rear his unwanted head, a guy with a secret crush might decide to reveal his true affections or (most likely) your parents will take pity on your Valentine-less state and provide you with presents. However you get it, these are the gifts you need to make V-Day much more bearable!
#1 Hana Mini Hair Straightener
What’s pink, small and expands when you want it to? Although what you’re thinking really IS the gift that keeps on giving, that wasn’t what I was referring to. Check out the Hana Mini straightening iron, a perfect tool for traveling. Not only will it fit in your suitcase, but it expands from 5 inches to 8 for easy use. It will definitely keep you hair sleek and shiny with its ceramic heaters and tourmaline plates. Get it (and maybe you’ll get that other thing, too!
#2 Bheestie Bag
It’s a miracle! The Bheestie bag sucks the moisture out of any electronic gadget, including your cell phone, IPod and ITouch. It’s a neccessity.
#3 Sweet Beauty Rose Pot De Creme
Forget eating chocolate — that’s only going to piss off your tummy AND make you gain weight while traveling. Instead, try Sweet Beauty’s chocolate and rose body cream, which is made from organic fair trade choccie. Plus, at 2 oz, it fits right in your carry-on, thank you very much. Indulge!
#4 La Prairie Cellular Luxe Lip Colour in Cardinal
Want to be red hot AND give yourself a beautiful kisser? La Prairie’s lippy manages to do both, given that it looks good and is made of caviar, so it firms and moisturizes at the same time.
#5 Burton’s Wheelie Flight Deck bag
OK, admit it — you pack too much. So do we all! Which is why Burton’s Wheelie Flight Deck bag is so amazing — you can literally pack an excess of your junk into its pockets, thanks to its volume-enhacning CRAM stretch zipper zones AND it meets most airline carry-on rules. This means you get to buy yourself more on vacation. Just sayin’…
