Valentine’s Giveaway


I’ve teamed up with some of my favourite blogger gals to bring you this Galentine’s Day Giveaway. We’ve carefully selected the brands that have contributed the amazing prizes outlined below because they are prodcuts that we use, wear, know and love. We’ve got you covered for everything you need to get ready to head out looking and feeling great whether it is for Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day or any ol’ day of the year!


Fresh flowers and sparkling pink lemonade definitely set the tone for a girly afternoon! 


And chocolates too…obviously!


The Waterside Inn in Port Credit was gracious enough to host our Girl’s get together in their Penthouse Suite. The room was full of light and charm and the perfect spot to spend the afternoon with the Girls or a romantic getaway weekend. This Valentine’s they are offering a Prixe Fixe menu at their Breakwater Restaurant  and they also have a Valentine’s Sunday Brunch on February 12.


Here it is…our Giveaway!

This giveaway pacakge is filled with 6 amazing prizes from different brands. Read below to see what is in store for our winner!

30 Chances to Enter at the Bottom of this Post! 

1. Nine West Hand Bags 



All of us in the group are huge fans of Nine West. Their heels have, in recent years, become my favourite for comfort, fashion, and versatility. BUT, did you know that they also make awesome handbags?! This year they even have the MOST adorable Valentine’s Day collection of shoes and matching handbags (shop it HERE). Nine West is offering a great promotion that until Valentine’s Day if you purchase a pair of shoes from the collection you can purchase the matching handbag for just $50 (it’s $120 regular). The winner of our giveaway will get to choose their favourite style of Nine West Handbag to be theirs!

2. Clarisonic

Valentines_Blogger_Giveaway-7 Valentines_Blogger_Giveaway-9

The Clarisonic is the number one cleansing device recommended by skin care professionals. Used in tandem with a cleanser, the clarisonic rotates gently to give your skin a deep cleansing and also allows your skin to absorb your products so much better after use (ie. your moisturizer will go into your skin, and not just sit on the surface!). I’ve read so many great things about how Clarisonic has changed peoples skin for the better (even just with the girls within this group), and while I am new to using Clarisonic I am really looking forward to seeing my skin after using it for a few weeks (so far I am loving the practice of using it!). If you have been thinking about trying it but aren’t sure, Clarisonic is so confident in their product that they even offer a 90 day money back guarantee if you find the product isn’t for you making it a risk free purchase if you ask me! Until Valentine’s Day they are offering 14% off the cost of the device. The winner of our giveaway will receive a Clarisonic Mia Fit which is pictured above and we have all been using.

3. Joey Co. Delivery Service



Joey Co. is  a new delivery app in that allows you to order basically anything from anywhere. Sounds intriguing right?! For our Galentine’s Day get together we ordered chocolates and flowers (naturally!) and they were delivered right to our hotel room door. The sky is kind of the limit of what you can order through the app – doing just a quick search of  the Joey Co vendors in my area turned up countless restaurants, pet stores, gift stores, costmetics stores, a drug store, and a grocery store (among lots more!). I could see this being really useful if I am having last minute guests over and I just don’t have time to clean the house AND grocery shop – place my grocery order through Joey Co and I can continue to clean while they shop for me! The winner of our giveaway will receive a $200 gift card to use on the Joey Co. app.

  4. Skechers Shoes Valentines_Blogger_Giveaway-13

If you had told me when I was in middle school that in the future I would be working with Skechers I think I would have fainted. No joke. I lusted for Skechers for months before finally getting a pair back in grade 6 – I can so vividly remember looking at them and trying them on in the shoe store. I think they were one of the first fashion items that I really loved and was so proud to wear. Flash forward to 15 years later (what?!)…they’re still awesome. I have been wearing my Vasos a lot lately (the black pair above) and they are comfortable (that’s what Skechers is all about) and totally my style. Skechers also has a lot of cute athletic shoes, like the pink and grey ones above, and the winner of this giveaway will choose their own pair of Skechers – whatever style they like!


5. Kiss by Rihanna Perfume from Shoppers Drug Mart Valentines_Blogger_Giveaway-15

A new perfume is always a great gift to give and receive on Valentine’s Day. There is something so romantic about perfume and paired with some flowers and chocolate that is the perfect Valentine’s Day package. Kiss is the third fragrance released by Rihanna and is available in store at Shoppers Drug Mart and Pharmaprix. This perfume scent is described as flirtatious and feminine with scents of plum, freesia, orange blossom and gardenia. To boot, the bottle is super beautiful (how I chose my perfume for the first 20 years of my life…by the bottle!;)) and will look lovely wherever it is placed. It’s always nice to have a signature scent and if you are looking for yours, I highly suggest you try giving this one a spritz! The winner of this giveaway will receive a bottle of Kiss by Rihanna from Shoppers Drug Mart.

6. BaBybliss PRO Barrel Iron from Trade Secrets


Trade Secrets has been a fantastic go-to location for hair products and tools for as long as I can remember, they have contributed this BaBybliss PRO Nano Titanium Ceramic Oval1-1/4″ Barrel Iron to our giveaway. Using a ceramic barrel iron like this is my absolute favourite way to get bouncy but natural looking curls. If you haven’t tried this manner of curling your hair before I highly recommend it – using a clipless iron like this can feel a little funny at first but it’s the sort of thing that after a few tries you just ‘get’ and you’ll never go back from there! The lucky winner of our giveaway will receive this BaBybliss PRO barrel iron from Trade Secrets.  Also, give Trade Secrets a follow on Instagram for daily beauty inspiration (their nail art especially gets me!).
