Charming Father’s Day Gift Guide

Enough about how much I love my Daddy .  . .

Usually when Father’s Day comes around, I write a feature about a shop to check out for Father’s Day gifts or I post sales on the Ms. Charm’s Chic Facebook page.

Charm of the Week: Valentine’s Day Edition 2011

14 Feb

Here’s the truth . . . when you are single, you view today as possibly one of the worst days of the year. Maybe one day I will be in a relationship with an awesome guy so I will feel better about this day.

Moving on . . . for all the lovers out there, I decided to get in spirit and do a Valentine’s Day “Charm of the Week”. In the meantime, I will continue to search for a Valentine.

TWO BACK FLATS -Valentine’s Day Queen of Hearts Mini Hats

When Valentine’s Day comes around, all the guys seem to flock to the lingerie section of a store or a lingerie shop online. However, I think guys should think a little bit out of the box.

Getting a Two Back Flats mini hat with a box of chocolates would so make me happy!
