Sure, the food and wine is fantastic, but the other appeal is the pure photogenic splendor of rolling landscapes and rustic-chic wedding venues.

Beauty Serums (These potent formulas can work wonders on your skin)

Take the time to add a serum to your skincare routine, and you will see results. Concentrated serums target your main skin concerns, delivering potent ingredients that penetrate deeper than moisturizers. Unlike moisturizers that sit on the surface, serums are formulated with smaller molecules, so they are easily absorbed. In fact, a few drops of serum applied 3-5 minutes before a moisturizer can actually improve the absorption of your moisturizer…

“The best anti-aging serums are packed with plant stem cells and vitamin C,” – says Nancy Neet, esthetician at The Allison Inn & Spa in Newberg, Ore.

“They help stimulate collagen and elastin – the strands of tissue that give the skin its strength and flexibility.”

When I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of hearts, flowers, chocolates, and, of course, red wine. If wine is on your mind this Valentine’s Day, you might want to consider a trip to a vineyard, where you can do a tasting first-hand and stay in a cazy, romantic inn. (For a kickstart, refresh your wine knowledge with a viewing of the romantic comedy, “sideways” where Miles and Jack go on a last-gasp guys’ wine country trip before Jack’s wedding).
