Pink and red... Roses and chocolates... violets are blue and so are you? Don't be down for Valentine's Day! I know this is a day out of the year when some people tend to get clinical on the depression levels without a great love to share for what the Romans celebrated as a great fertility festival, but be positive if you're single this year! I think it's the best day to reflect on why you're single - most likely because no one is living up to your standards or being independent is the best thing for you now whether you realize it or not. So live it up, buy your own chocolates and of course some cute new lingerie and watch a funny movie. February 15th will be just another day and you'll realize that you too can live without the overly romanticized day. Now... if you're not single, let's get down to business. What are you going to do for your man? I recommend a sexy surprise and the following brands will surely do!

If you have hunted and you're now looking at yet another catalog wondering when they'll ever make a bra in your size, BuxomInc.com is there for you. Founder Christine Kurek explains, "Buxom Inc.’s items are designed to fit proportionately to a full-busted woman’s body, so she can buy her true size and have it fit both in the bust and waist.” Hello! There's your calling for perfection in the busty department.
My ultimate pick for this V-day goes with my triathlon training lifestyle though. Flingwear.com is a winner for those on the go. Each thong comes in a resealable bag (great packaging by the way) and is ready to fit in any small compartment - for me, my gym bag as a spare pair. They're even eco-friendly and come in pink, black or nude. For all the athletes or girls running out the door, the Valentine's new color release is cotton-candy pink, they're so cute!
$11.99 - $16.00

Lastly, have you ever ruined a new expensive bra because you threw it in the wash with your jeans and normal load? Well, it happens, so now there is a wash solution that doesn't require rinsing and is an easy hand-wash alternative. SoakWash was created for those with sensitive skin to be super easy on extra fine stitching and important cashmeres and silks. There is a mini size and a 425mL and ranges up to $16. It can be found at Dillard's, Bliss and in December it was featured at Target - so get cleaning the right way!
If you got nothing more this Valentine's Day than something for yourself and enjoyed a day for you - it's worth it. Remember our favorite thing is shopping - so turn up the tunes and hit the www so you be sexy in time for Feb. 14th!
