It’s almost Valentine’s Day! And I’ve teamed up with Indigo 2 Ash to do this fun Valentine themed collab!
Valentine’s Day isn’t just about chocolate, red roses and date night out. Sometimes the after party can be just as important. I thought it’d be fun to share some of my tips on how to end the night with a little romance in the bedroom.
5 TIPS FOR A ROMANTIC NIGHT featuring Indigo 2 Ash
TIP #1: Get Your Beauty Sleep
It’s important to get a good night sleep before any type of event or situation where you want to look and feel your absolute best. A good night’s sleep will make you more energized for the next day and help you avoid having under eye circles, not to mention it has a ton of other health benefits. Sleep is also a restorative and increases testosterone levels for both men and women. Definitely something to think about before a romantic night with your love, just sayin’!
Cultured Soul Coverlet in Honeycomb
Okay so I am OBSESSED, obvi. You guys know honeycomb is one of my absolute favorite patterns! I love this coverlet because it’s both modern and chic and I chose to get mine in the color white. The woven texture is extremely comfortable and the best part is the pattern pairs easily with many decors allowing you to mix and match for your own unique style. Shop my coverlet here!

Continuous Journey Pillow in Palace
So I was pretty torn because these pillows also come in honeycomb! But I chose the chevron pattern for contrast and I’m glad I did because they’re absolutely gorgeous! These pillows come in a set of 2 and have a very delicate texture. The woven lines add elegance and texture to the bedroom and I think they pair really nicely with my honeycomb coverlet! I got my pillows in the color silver/white. Shop my pillows here!

TIP #2: Set the mood
A little romance can go a long way. You don’t have to break the bank to set up a romantic setting in your most sacred place. Your love will appreciate the little things, just like we do so any gesture you make is a good one. Try turning down the lights and setting some candles. Chris is allergic to artificial scents so for me, candles isn’t an option. One thing I like to do is have glasses ready by the bed and champagne chilling in the fridge so it’s nice and cold when we come home. Chocolate covered strawberries are also something he loves (dark chocolate of course) so I like making those the night before. Something else I like to do is scatter rose petals all over the bed. It’s fun and cute and maybe a little silly but he appreciates the thought. My little secret… I actually use fake rose petals. I love them because you only have to buy them once and can reuse them over and over again and they look pretty real too so who cares! It’s the thought that counts!
TIP #3: PLAY DRESS UP
Even if he won’t admit it, every guy secretly loves their girl to wear some form of sexy lingerie on a special night. My lingerie is for Chris’ eyes only so for this collab I chose to wear a sexy nightgown instead. But you get the idea. Even if lingerie isn’t your thing, you can still play dress up with a sexy silk nightgown or maybe even one of his t-shirts and a pair of cute undies. Don’t wear anything you’re not comfortable in. Be you, but find something that will peak his interest and get him in a romantic mindset. I think in every relationship, it’s important for both partners to do something they know the other will like. So if he’s the one planning the date, you can plan a little something to end the night. Most likely he won’t be expecting it and it’ll be a nice surprise to come home to and put a smile on his face.
