My Favorite Valentines

A new perfume, cozy blanket, a bit of bling,and a splash of color - what more could a girl want for Valentine's Day? (Courtsey Photos)

When trying to find that perfect token of affection for that special someone most often we forget the most special someone of all, ourselves. For all the ladies who are the caregiver, lover, mother, and best friends out there this Valentine's Day gift yourself with one of these five finds you're sure to love. As L'Oreal says, you're worth it!

Designer Kelly Wearstler, a famously frank judge on Bravo TV's "Top Design," launched a jewelry line so unique and special that each piece feels like some far off place. Very modern and chic the five interlocking sterling silver bracelets that make up the Quince Bracelet is one of my favorites from her spring line. ($625. KellyWearstler.com)

I love to snuggle in under a cozy blanket with a glass of wine when I get some free time to read a great book especially in the winter. I can't help but feel warm all over tucked under the Classic Wool Throw from Lexington Company. In a shade of pink so soft and pretty you'll want to redecorate just so you can keep it out all season this blanket is a great give to give and get. ($199. Lexington Company, 46 Main Street, Southampton, www.lexingtoncompany.com)

Just in time for New York Fashion Week, Jet Set Candy, whose charms and dangles are inspired by some of the world's most famous places, is showing more than a little love for the Big Apple with their Chrysler Building necklace charm. The 14K gold vermeil charm opens to reveal the key to the city and looks fun and fab on a charm bracelet or necklace. ($198. MyJetSetCandy.com)

Who doesn't love a new perfume? I have a few new ones on my list starting with the new 8 Fleur de Rouge from Abercrombie & Fitch. The powerful floral fragrance is meant for a strong and beautiful woman. This scent will offered for a limited time through the spring. ($44. http://www.abercrombie.com/shop/us/womens-fragrance)

Beautifully packaged gift sets feel like a gift even when you buy them for yourself. A petal pink gift set packed with five travel sized lip balms are even more fun. The new Terry Baume de Rose Colour Collection is a mix of a kissable shimmer shades including soft pink, bright poppy, nude, a barely there shimmer, and a fun purple shade that amazingly everyone can wear.
