Love is in the air this week so for the next five days, I’ll be sharing my picks of great Valentine’s day gifts, cards and decorating ideas to inspire you to really enjoy this day with that special someone.

I usually like to have a fizzy mimosa with brunch on the weekend, but it’s just as refreshing and delicious when served as an aperitif.
This gorgeous new property, which is linked to its sister property, the Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles, is in the heart of the action in downtown LA. It’s situated smack dab in the middle of Los Angeles’ entertainment hub. It’s just steps from the LA Convention Centre, the Staples Centre and the Nokia Theatre, where awards shows like The People’s Choice Awards and the American Music Awards are held each year.
