BeansTalk was lucky enough to spend an evening with fellow fashionista bloggers at the Accessories Council’s Valentine’s Day Twitter Event. Hosted at the Roman Sunstone Showroom in NYC, Accessories Council President, Karen Giberson, and world-famous astrology expert, Susan Miller, gave us some fun and flirty gift ideas for that special someone.

We learned early in the night as we enjoyed cocktails courtesy of Don Q Rum and satisfied our sweet tooth with a little help from Soft Serve Fruit Co., that different astrological signs play a factor in our love life. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites from the night, perfect for the most romantic day of the year.

We fell in love with these Mavi Eyez Cuflinks. Representing the universal “Evil Eye,” these cufflinks are sure to bring the man in your life good luck. Each one-of-a-kind cuff link is crafted from handmade glass beads from Turkey. Available for $40 at
