How To Love.

Hugh and the Bunnies.

Hugh and the Bunnies. Sometimes you just have to love everyone you can.

Love is something that most people search for, some can do without, and others don’t even try to find.  After a very lengthy conversation with my sister about a few things in my personal life, I got to thinking about love in my life, and how my idea of this may be a bit different from others.  Luckily for me, I found a visual representation of different types of love that steps outside the typical mold of pink hearts and flowers.  Sardinian-born designer Barbara Pala’s “Me + You” series looks at iconic loves from the entertainment world with a fashionable eye.  Some cards step outside the normal boundaries of monogamy, begging the question: what is love REALLY?

Lil Wayne And Eminem’s Valentines Day Track.

We all already know that Saturday Night Live is notorious for grilling entertainers in the spot light.  One of their newest skits came as a comical parody of a collaboration between Lil Wayne and Eminem.  My good friend Carlee turned me onto the video below, and I haven’t stopped laughing since.  (The Eminem part is almost spot on.)

Valentines Day Is Right Around The Corner.

It’s been the source of much rumor and speculation around my community of colleagues as to what my plans for Valentines Day are, and all I can say is that its none of your business. lol.  But if you’re looking to whisk a loved one away this Valentine’s Day, several luxury hotels are offering special deals to tempt you.  Moevenpick is offering a full-on month of romance at all of its Middle East and Asian properties between February 1-28, which includes 50% off a second night, a romantic welcome gift and an in-room breakfast for two.  Luxury chain Four Seasons has turned the US city of Chicago into a romance hotspot, offering a free night for couples who splash out for a bottle of Dom Pérignon on February 14 at the Four Seasons Chicago and a ‘Sweetheart Special’ weekend menu at the deca Restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton Chicago, a Four Seasons Hotel.

Its Las Vegas property is even offering a “Romance Concierge”, on hand to arrange romantic experiences such as a private dessert lesson with the hotel’s pastry chef, a picnic under the stars on the floor of the Grand Canyon and a private shopping experience at the Graff Diamonds store in Las Vegas.  Affinia Hotels in New York, Chicago and Washington are offering a Kiss & Tell Getaway, which includes a room upgrade (where available) and a turndown with sweets, rose petals and champagne from  $194 (€145) per night in New York City, $134 (€100) in Chicago and $204 (€152) in Washington, D.C.  In London, Swissotel‘s The Howard is offering a Valentine’s Day Tea special from £35 (€42), although staying in the luxury W London Leicester Square on February 14, its opening night, could be an equally good treat.

Big-spending  romantics may also want to check in to the InterContinental Hong Kong‘s HK$1 million Valentine’s Date, although it’s not for the faint-hearted.  The night, available February 11-14, includes a stay in Hong Kong’s largest Presidential Suite, chauffeured airport transfers in a Phantom VI Rolls-Royce (with a bottle of champagne en route), 1000 roses, a HK$150,000 shopping spree with a personal shopper, a custom-made menu from one of the hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurants, a live string quartet in your suite, a champagne and caviar breakfast and — in case that wasn’t enough — a Valentine message displayed by banner via private boat, which can be seen from the suite’s terrace.  No matter what your budget is, or what your plans are, just spend your Valentines Day knowing that there is always SOMEONE out there that loves you.
