Happy Valentines Day to one and all! I am a sucker for any excuse to celebrate anything (seriously, I threw a Speakeasy Party just because I wanted to liven up this year's Chicago winter), so Valentine's Day is, as usual, an exciting day for Carly.
First, it's exciting because I have amazing plans for the night. A few months ago, my fiance made a prime time reservation at Moto. Let's just say that I can't wait to add my Yelp review to that list, because I'm convinced it's going to be a night to remember. I'm even planning to bring my camera. Yep, I'll be that dork with a DLSR at dinner. But really, dinner at Moto practically begs to be photographed.

Second, today is exciting because we have our Save The Dates and Engagement Party invites back from the printer! I'm extremely picky when it comes to design and announcements, etc, so I designed both the Save The Date we'll be sending out as well as the invite for the Engagement Party my parents are throwing next month for the bridal party, family, and some local guests. I used some of the engagement shots taken by Daniel Peter and then went from there. Some pictures of those announcements/invites coming soon! Can't wait to share my custom monogram. Don't roll your eyes.
Third, today is exciting because it's a big sale day. Companies always go out of their way to roll out the Valentine's carpet and offer good deals. Perhaps it's because people are either in a wonderful mood (buy stuff) or a horrible mood (buy even more stuff). Here are a few sales I'm keeping my eye on:
- GNC is offering 25% off their entire online shop if you use the code IHEARTGNC
- Juicy Couture is offering 30% off track and handbags (View the items on sale here)
- World Market is offering 25% off bubbly and vino for members (if you're not a member, it's easy to join, you can do it in the store)
- J Crew is offering 30% off all final sale items with the coupon code STYLE30 (I don't think this discount is exclusive to today's holiday by the way)
Fourth, today is exciting because I'm announcing the winner of the Gentle Bath Company Giveaway! I'm very thrilled to announce that the winner is...
I used random number generator to choose a winner based on the comments that were left. Tiffany, because you did not use a google or blogger account to leave your comment, I do not have an email address for you to shoot you a note letting you know you've won -- so I'll give you until Monday to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and claim your prize! On Monday, if I've not heard from you, I'll have to re-draw! Don't make me...
