4. Salmon Quince Branches
I love these Salmon Quince Branches as a beautiful alternative to standard roses on Valentine’s Day. They flower for about two weeks and bring the beauty of spring inside a little early.

5. Chocolate and Cookies (Well, of course!)
A boutique shop in Kansas City is stealing our hearts this year with their AMAZING Peanut Butter Balls and beautifully decorated Heart Shaped Sugar Cookies! Smart Cookies Bakery has been melting the hearts of sweet lovers all over the nation since 2009 and owner Shari Weyrach's favorite thing is to make people smile. And this former KC Chiefs' Cheerleader does just that!
6. Pile on Pink Hearts
It looks tricky, but this mani is actually pretty easy to recreate. Start with your favorite light pink as a base — we recommend Essie's Need a Vacation ($9, amazon.com) — and add on layers of pink and red with a slight curve that mimics a heart. Afraid to try yourself? No worries - we have the best manicure artists in Ft. Scott, right upstairs at Refreshed Salon & Spa!

8. Slip Silk Sleep Mask
This luxurious, pure silk sleep mask was refined and perfected over the course of ten years to ensure it delivers the most restorative beauty rest. Crafted from long-strand mulberry silk both inside and out, it protects delicate skin from the tugging effects of tossing and turning.
Fun fact: After she was prescribed a medication that had the unfortunate side-effect of thinning her hair, Fiona Stewart's doctor suggested that she sleep on a silk pillowcase to minimize breakage and loss. Dissatisfied with what she found in the marketplace, Stewart decided to source her own silk and create her own. Noticing immediate improvements to the health and radiance of both her hair and her skin, she decided to found SLIP - a line of luxurious, hypoallergenic shams and sleep masks that protect from the creases and pulling often caused by standard-issue cotton.
