    Happy Valentine’s Day! May Love surrounds you all year long! Love your blog. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful ideas. Unfortunately I can’t find Cava Brut Anna or Olivares. I will try some of your other drinks and recipes. I also love roses and a nice candle to relax.
    Just wanted to mention that I can’t view your previous post about Favorite pink lipsticks. It says PAGE NOT FOUND ERROR 401. Is there a way to fix that problem?
    Have a wonderful weekend!

      Happy Valentine’s Day to you, Yvonne! Thank you for your continued support and lovely comments. If you do try one of my cocktails or sangrias, please let me know how it goes!

      Unfortunately, I had to pull the My top 5 Rose Toned Lipsticks post shortly after publication as one of the products mentioned was discontinued in the time I was working on the post (which seems to be a common problem when I share longtime beauty favourites!). But not to worry, I’ve already found a replacement and will be reshooting this month, so stay tuned for re-publication before the end of February. I did include several of my favourite pink lipsticks in this post, if you’re looking for other recommendations!

      For future reference, whenever you visit my homepage, you’ll be able to see all posts that are live — so there’s no need to worry that you’re not able to see any published work. If you’re getting any kind of Page Not Found error when attempting to access a post through an email notification, it’s likely that I’ve taken that post offline due to various circumstances.

      I hope this is helpful! Please let me know if you have any other questions and have a lovely weekend.
