Smells like love

Warning: This heart-shaped box doesn’t house chocolates, but it does contain something almost as sweet. Prada Candy Florale Eau de Toilette is a multifaceted floral juice with airiness and warm sweetness. The star notes are lemoncello, peony, caramel, honey and musk. Just in time for Valentine's, Hudson's Bay is selling a limited edition gift set that includes a 50 mL bottle of the fragrance along with a 10 mL roll on version—perfect to toss in your purse for on-the-go re-ups. Exclusive Prada Candy Florale Valentine's Day Gift Set, $85, thebay.com.

Amazing lace

Everything is better with a touch of lace, especially for the month of February. We love the effortless beauty of this simple camisole made from a lightweight fluid fabric. Wear under a sheer blouse;if you’re feeling risky, just pair it with a blazer and wear it to work. Babaton Galen camisole, $60, aritzia.com.

Saving face

If your skin is acting like a total flake, you've got to give this eco-friendly and ultra-nourishing Josie Maran oil and serum hybrid a try. This intensive hydrating treatment penetrates deeply and absorbs within minutes, while providing long-lasting hydration throughout the day. A perfect pick me up in the dead of winter. Josie Maran Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Treatment, $70, sephora.ca.

Work It

If you're a regular at the gym but feel like the January and February New Year’s resolution brigade is cramping your swagger, then get outside and go for a run instead. This also gives you the perfect excuse to buy cute new workout gear. We love this wind- and water-resistant outer-layer running jacket from Lululemon, perfect for days that get down to -10. If the temps plummet even further, layer it over a vest or sweater. Feelin' Frost softshell jacket, $198, lululemon.com.

Happy feet

Just because it’s a snow day doesn’t mean you can skip out on work—it’s also no excuse to skip out on work-appropriate footwear. We love these boots from Quebec brand, La Canadienne. These shearling-lined ankle booties are water resistant, with a six month waterproof guarantee. Kimberley boots, $355, lacanadienneshoes.ca.

Better than a bouquet

Great to give as a gift or keep for yourself, a Diptyque candle never disappoints—we promise! We can’t get enough of Roses, one of the French brand's signature scented candles. Trust us, this is way better than a boutique of roses—plus, it lasts a lot longer. Diptyque Roses Mini Candle, $30, holtrenfrew.com.

Wrap star

Our national treasure, Hudson’s Bay, teams up with Johnstons of Elgin to create this luxurious signature striped scarf. It’s made in Scotland with the finest cashmere available. We admit, the price tag is steep but the styling potential is endless—and, it will never go out of style. Hudson's Bay Company 100% cashmere scarf in multi-stripe, $160, thebay.com.

Heart headed

Vancouver's Katherine Huie is the designer behind Foe and Dear, a romantic, whimsical and sometimes quirky handcrafted jewellery line. We adore these teeny tiny 14k rose gold studs with sterling silver posts and backs. 14k rose gold heart studs, $60, foeanddear.com.

Micro trend

This bag delivers on both form and function—it’s on trend for spring, looks good and holds a ton of goodies. There are plenty of cool, crisp takes on the silhouette but we love this one from Zara—its perforated appearance is very sporty-chic. Perforated bucket bag, $60, zara.com.

Cold play

February might be the month of love, but it’s also the month of mega sales. We've been coveting this mixed-material winter jacket for the last few months, but the original $700 price kept it out of reach. Good news—it’s just gone to half price and has plenty of stock in all sizes. For more fashion and beauty, visit our Style Desk blog. Blend jacket with Italian lamb leather, $349, danier.com.
