We asked The Hills beauty, Audrina Patridge, ten questions about Valentine’s Day and she answered. She talks about romance, feeling sexy, and she even has some great gift ideas from Bluefly.


FUSN: What are your favorites for each of these on Valentine’s Day?
AP: Romantic song: “Colorblind” by Counting Crows
Movie: Pretty Woman
Food / Dessert: Chocolate covered strawberries or fresh berries and whipped cream
Perfume: Leila Lou
Most romantic spot to take a vacation: Anywhere tropical!

FUSN: What’s the one thing you do to feel sexy on Valentine’s Day?
AP: I always feel sexy when I have great undergarments on! I also feel sexy in a gorgeous pair of high heels. Wear what you feel comfortable in, but remember that it’s fun to dress up every once in a while.

FUSN: What advice can you give men so they can give their girlfriends the perfect Valentine’s Day?
AP: Make sure you pay attention to what your girlfriend likes, not what you “think” she should like. It’s important to put a little effort into it– maybe cook her dinner or dessert, or surprise her with a love letter.

FUSN: What’s the one thing a girl must do for herself on Valentine’s Day?
AP: If you are spending Valentine’s Day without a significant other, then I vote for a spa day or a mani/pedi with your best friends!

FUSN: Any Valentine’s Day gifts men should not give their girlfriends?
AP: Make sure you know your girlfriend’s size if you’re going to buy her lingerie! There is nothing worse than stuff that doesn’t fit.


FUSN: Do you think it’s too generic for men to bring flowers and chocolate or is it still a perfect way to start out a date on Valentine’s Day?
AP: I think it’s all in the gesture. If you are going to pick up a bouquet of her absolute favorite flowers (i.e. pink tulips), then it’s awesome, but don’t go out and grab red roses because that’s what they had at the grocery store!

FUSN: Would you rather stay in and let the guy make you dinner or go out to a fancy restaurant on Valentine’s Day?
AP: I like both! I have to say, there is nothing more romantic than having a guy cook an entire meal for you… plus, on Valentine’s Day the restaurants usually do a fixed menu which takes some of the fun out of it.

FUSN: Going on a first date on Valentine’s Day– yes or no?
AP: It seems like a lot of pressure for a first date. I would rather be having a glass of wine with my girlfriends than meeting a guy for the first time on Valentine’s day.

FUSN: Past or present, do you have a celebrity crush that you wish you could spend Valentine’s Day with?
AP: Oh gosh… I’d have to think about that one!

Here are Audrina’s top picks for Valentine’s Day from Bluefly and why she loves each one:


Valentino Red Satin Bow Detail Zip Clutch
Retail: $795
Bluefly: $636

I love this clutch! It’s so feminine and then, of course, the signature Valentino red. It looks like a present, and it is!


Jardin White CZ 3 Carat Studs
Retail: $260
Bluefly: $156

These earrings are gorgeous without being gaudy or breaking your boyfriend’s bank. Perfect of everyday, but would also look great paired with an evening gown and a sleek updo. Note to guys: You can never go wrong when you give us jewelry for Valentine’s Day.


Kashmere Red Gloves
Retail: $95
Bluefly: $57

Cashmere is amazing! I love how many different ways these can be worn- regular, buttoned long or as arm warmers. A good boyfriend would get these for his girlfriend to make sure she stayed warm this winter!


Grey Burnout Heart Scoopneck Boyfriend Tank
Retail: $99
Bluefly: $59

A girl can never have too many tanks, and this one looks super comfortable! It’s not too expensive, and you know your boyfriend put thought into it because of the giant heart.


Bottega Venetta Red Basket Leather Woven Wallet
Retail: $600
Bluefly: $480

This is such a classic wallet. I would just think my boyfriend was so sophisticated… and probably had a little help from his stylish mom! But this really is something you know you have for life.. and any boyfriend that wants to invest in your future is a boyfriend worth keeping around.


Gucci Black GG Twill Tall Hobo
Retail: $725
Bluefly: $580

I would be thrilled to get a new everyday bag, and this is the perfect go-to. You can wear black with anything and the strap makes it easy to carry. This gift says that you have a boyfriend who knows you well, wants to simplify life, but in a stylish way.


Cherry Cotton Ripped Racerback Tank
Retail: $57
Bluefly: $40

Only a cool boyfriend would be able to pick this tank. Flattering fit, easy to dress up with a great pair of heels, or dress down with some flip flops, and of course, the rips that give this tank a bit of edge.


YSL Patent Leather Cosmetic Case
Retail: $395
Bluefly: $316

I would be happy getting anything YSL! Patent leather is always fun, so that is a plus. Overall, a great gift.

When men are looking for that perfect gift for her, a gift of chocolate is the perfect one. Chocolates are perfect mood elevators and are considered to have aphrodisiac properties. A heart shape chocolate says “ I love You” louder than any man can ever say. Visit here:
