      You may love it, you may hate it, but there's no denying that Valentine's Day is now under a week away and the countdown is on!

      Whether you need to drop some hints to the man in your life, or treat yourself to something in preparation for getting whisked away for a weekend of romance, we've put together a selection of items to ensure you'll be feeling fabulous and ready to be struck by Cupid's bow on February 14th.

      Men, if you're planning to treat the lady you love, just PLEASE make sure you order before it's too late!

    • Destination Looks - February

      Well, we don't know about you, but January certainly did fly-by for us!

      We were very jealous of those lucky enough to get a sprinkling of snow, however if like us you were in London and missed out on all the fun then breathe a sigh of relief - the time for skiing is here!

      After a slow start to the season, there is now snow aplenty and those not bound by school holidays are already lucky enough to be jetting out to the Alps or the States; enjoying the winter playground that Mother Nature kindly creates for us.

      Take a look below at our favorite tried and tested ski destinations to head to this half-term.
      To really indulge, make sure you book a chalet with an outdoor hot-tub or hotel with a pool and spa. After all, everyone needs chance to rejuvenate at the end of the day and who can say no to the opportunity of bringing a touch of glamour to the slopes with some Odabash swimwear!

    • Melissa in the Middle East

      At this time of year there is only one destination to charter a plane to - the UAE.
