If you read this post last week, you might remember us saying that one of the best ways to spend Valentine’s Day is by cozying up indoors with a glass of wine, some delicious takeout and a great, classic movie. After all, every girl needs a night in to kick back and pamper herself every once in a while, right? But what truly makes a good night in a great night in is the atmosphere you create in your home. Fuzzy blankets, delicious Bijou candles, and some mood music or a movie will do the trick. All of us here at Team LC feel we have mastered the art of creating a cozy oasis for a night in, and today we’re sharing our tips and décor inspiration for doing just that.
So, pick up a few bottles of your favorite vino, light some candles from the new Bijou scent collection and draw yourself a luxurious bubble bath, because it’s time for a night off. Take a little peek below to see how we suggest creating a cozy bedroom oasis for your next night in…
Beautify your bedside table…
There’s nothing like a perfectly decorated bedside table to get you in the mood for a relaxing night at home. After all, your bedroom is the perfect place to snuggle up with a good book or movie, delicious candles and a glass of wine (or Champagne!). We love the scent of the Bois de Vanille candle for the bedroom, with its hints of sweet vanilla bourbon, lime and lily of the valley. And it’s so pretty that it makes for gorgeous décor, too.
Take a luxurious bubble bath…
Is there anything more relaxing than spending an evening indoors and treating yourself to a luxurious bubble bath? We think not. Especially when you complement your evening with some candles and mellow music. Our favorite scent to light while enjoying a bubble bath is Ambre Tubereuse. The citrus and musk notes are perfect if you love candles that have a clean yet zesty scent.
Revamp your vanity…
A girl’s vanity is a very sacred area. It’s where she goes to feel beautiful: where she applies her makeup, styles her hair, and takes that last look before heading out the door. So, the next time you have a night in, take a few minutes to reorganize and style your vanity area. Use a pretty tray to display your perfumes, treat yourself to a pretty bouquet of flowers, and have some candles on hand to light the next time you primp. The smoky, limited edition Tabac Noir candles smell just as good as they look, with hints of rosewood and clove. They’re the perfect scent to light when you’re getting ready for a night out or just relaxing at home.
All of these scents will be available on Bijou.com on February 14th, so be sure to let your valentine know which one is on your list. Or, better yet, give your valentine your favorite Bijou scent so you can enjoy it together! Or, you can enter our giveaway below…
