For All The Lovers Out There ....

Love it or hate it, Valentine's Day is less than 24 hours away. Whether you're single or in a couple, make sure you have a great day and check out these last minute necessities and gift ideas to either cheer yourself up or make your partner a happy soul tomorrow!

First thing first, if you are planning on getting some lip action, make sure you breath is on point. There's nothing like bad breath to kill the sparks of passion before it even has a chance to get going. Freshen breath with RetarDEX Oral Spray which eliminates bad breath for up to 8 hours. Find it in Boots and selected Tesco, Sainsburys, Waitrose, Booth, and all good pharmacies and dental surgeries. RRP £3.05

 To help set the mood, check out I Love ..range, which includes affordable treats such as body butters, shower smoothies and scented candles. The candles come in yummy Strawberry Milkshake and Raspberry and Blackberry. Find them at selected Morrisons supermarkets for only £3

If you want to go all out, then a soak in Connock London Kukui Oil Soothing Bath Oil is guaranteed to kickstart your Valentine's Day on the right track. It smells utterly divine! Immerse yourself in this luxurious bath oil, which is the perfect addition to an intimate soak. This highly conditioning Kukui Oil contains a blend of Kukui, Macadamia and Tamanu to comfort and sooth for incredibly soft skin with a healthy glow. It's not cheap at £42.90 (20ml), but if you have the cash to splash then why not ..

For glowing cheeks, that'll rival any candlelit effect, then you can't go wrong with NARS Albatross - a cheek powder highlighter which suits skin tones across the board. This is one of my favourite NARS products. I buff it in along my cheekbones or directly on the apples of my cheeks,  either way it gives a gorgeous glow. Price £20.50 from NARS counters or online

Dr Bronner's lip balm in Naked

Make sure your lips are prepped to perfection and baby soft with Dr Bronner's organic lip balms. Containing jojoba, avocado oil and hemp oil moisturisers, they're free from synthetic ingredients and preservatives. Find them at priced just £2.55, they're available in Lemon Lime, Naked, Orange Ginger and Peppermint.

You don't want any lipstick on your teeth or hairs out of place - so give yourself the once over with the Model Mirror, which lights up at a push of a button and also flips open to display 2x magnification on one side too. Check out the variety of styles it comes in on

We all appreciate a good smelling man, so treat yours to a classic scent such as Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani. Fresh, acquatic, yet warm and masculine me on this one ladies. It's not the number one best selling men's fragrance in the world for nothing! Priced from £31.99 for 30ml at The Perfume Shop

...or celebrate your love with a Bang (ahem!)! I'm talking about Marc Jacobs Bang, the new fragrance whose advertising campaign caused a bit of a stir courtesy of a certain Mr Jacobs. The irresistable peppery scent is now available in a transparent black sprayed bottle in a pocket-sized 30ml. RRP £31 at The Perfume Shop

Finally for those with a sweet tooth, declare your love in chocolate! Check out the mouthwatering offerings from chocolate connoisseurs Thorntons. Their Alphabet Truffles are always a big hit and this 'I Love You' set is already half price and now £8.75. Thorntons say you can order online until 6pm (GMT) TONIGHT and still have your order delivered tomorrow ...oooh bit risky if you ask me, but hey if they don't deliver, you can always sue 'em!
