Valentine’s Day is coming up soon and we at West Hills Cavi-Lipo have compiled a list of seven unconventionally romantic films to watch with your loved one on Valentine’s Day. We know you’re probably tired of watching Love Actually, Titanic and the Notebook every year, so here are a few hidden gems you may not immediately think of. These are great to watch whether you’re a married couple or on your first date.
A movie and dinner is a great way to spend Valentine’s Day, but feeling good is even better. Whether you want to look good for yourself or your partner, Cavi-Lipo is an excellent way to lose inches in a fast and healthy way. There’s also still time to ‘inadvertently’ mention West Hills Cavi-Lipo to your loved one and let them know you’d love the gift of a few Cavi-Lipo treatments. As of now until March 14th, 2018, purchase (3) treatments for the price of $210. Go ahead and lounge around with your Valentine, eat copious amounts of chocolate and watch movies all day and feel relieved that West Hills Cavi-Lipo is here to help you feel and look amazing.
Here are the seven films we suggest for this Valentine’s Day:
Elevator to the Gallows (Ascenseur pour l’échafaud)1958 – dir. Louis Malle
Ascenseur pour l’échafaud begins with a murder, but is ultimately a tale of love, lust, and passion. Jeanne Moreau is especially charming as Florence, and the great visuals are almost outshined by a great score provided by Miles Davis.
Before Sunrise1995 – dir. Richard Linklater
This is a dialogue heavy film with little to no action that somehow still managers to keep the viewer enthralled for the entire length of the film. It follows two people who meet for the first time on a train and end up spending the day together in Venice. The entire film is essentially a collection of conversations that work to dissect the intricacies of two people falling in love for the first time.
Breathless (À bout de souffle)1960 – dir. Jean-Luc Godard
Constantly regarded as one of the best films ever made by a number of film societies, À bout de souffle is the story of a thief and a student, the dynamic between the two and their effect on one another.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind2004 – dir. Michel Gondry
Eternal Sunshine is film at it’s finest. It’s a beautifully shot, cerebral film with unconventional story telling. This is a film that is bound to stay in your head with resonating quotes and relatable thoughts and ideas. While it is a bit more melancholy than other films in this list, it’s the perfect film to watch and discuss over dinner with your significant other.
In the Mood for Love (Faa yeung nin wa)2000 – dir. Wong Kar-Wai
Kar-Wai Wong crafted a masterpiece with Faa yeung nin wa. This is another unconventional love story that, at it’s core, is one of the finest romance films ever created. There are very few films more visually striking, and the acting and writing are so well done that it feels like you’re intruding on the lives of two strangers. Without giving away too much about the plot, the tension present between the two main stars in this film feels so tangible that it deserves a place in the credits.
Love Jones1997 – dir. Theodore Witcher
Art, romance and witty dialogue take the center stage in Love Jones. Larenz Tate and Nia Long have amazing on-screen chemistry as Darius Lovehall & Nina Moseley, respectively. This is bolstered by perfect music placement in this story of two individuals maneuvering through infatuation, passion and uncertainty in a budding relationship. The trailer really doesn’t do this film justice, but take a look below:
Casablanca1942 – dir. Michael Curtiz
Casablanca is a certified classic. However, it often is overlooked when it comes to naming romantic films. While it’s conclusion isn’t the typical ending to a romance film, at it’s core, it’s still very much about love. Casablanca is a great movie with a gripping story, great cast, and is one of the more action oriented films in this list. Chances are you’ve heard one of the many quotable lines derived from this film.

Food Portion Control Containers
A food portioning system is important in order to make sure you’re getting the right amount of nutrients. You can plan out your meals for the day or week and avoid over eating. These make a great, inexpensive gift.
Fitness trackers allow you to capture data including steps taken, distance travelled while walking/running, sleep activity and heart rate. This information will sync up wirelessly to your phone and allow you to view your all day activity. Many fitness trackers also provide perks such as built in exercises, music controls, and text and app alerts. It works well with many other items on our list.
Our Pick: Fitbit Charge HR 2

A water bottle is a gift that can be overlooked, but is a very useful gift for anyone. Everyone needs water and having a dedicated reusable water bottle will allow you to make sure that you’re drinking the required amount of water each day. Look for a sturdy, insulated water bottle that will keep your liquids hot or cold and won’t break when dropped.
Our Pick: Hydroflask
Fruit Infuser Bottle
While it’s certainly true that everyone needs to drink water, some people don’t exactly like drinking water. Fruit infusion is a technique that can be used in order to create calorie-free flavored water for those who find water too bland. Use a fruit infuser bottle to to infuse the taste from your favorite fruits and herbs into your daily water requirement.
It is recommended that Cavi-Lipo patients exercise after their treatment. It can be difficult to get into the rhythm of working out, but it’s much easier when you have comfortable clothing to wear while doing so. New sportswear might even entice you to begin working out. Exercise clothing and footwear make a great gift for any health-minded individual.
Diet Delivery Meal Plan
A meal delivery plan is a great gift for the dieter who doesn’t have much time to cook for themselves. Life can get busy, and there are many days where cooking isn’t an option. There are many different vendors who provide this service and provide low calorie food for dieters and health conscious people. While Cavi-Lipo patients require no special diet, it always helps to eat healthier.
Our pick: We don’t have one specific pick, but BistroMD, Weight Watchers, MDBistro, and many other vendors have great delivery meal plans.

Curious about West Hills Cavi-Lipo? See what our clients are saying:
“I heard from my hair stylist at Erika Cole salon of a new treatment called Cavi lipo. It reduces inches with no downtime or side effects, and it’s even FDA approved. I tried it and immediately saw results, and the after cavi protocol was very realistic and easy to follow. I had the procedure done on my abdomen getting 2 treatments a week for a total of 3 weeks and I’m amazed with the results because I was skeptical at first. I’m going to continue with another body part and I highly recommend giving it a shot.”

Since we know many of our readers are always curious about treatments to make themselves look even more beautiful and fit, we thought we’d take a look at Cavi-Lipo and Laser Lipo, both of which are body contouring procedures, but they have very different processes (in case you missed our Cavi-Lipo vs. liposuction blog post, you can check it out here).
|Fancy Term for the process:||Ultrasound cavitation||Micro-laser technology|
|Treatment length?||Under an hour – including a lymphatic massage to assist with drainage||Several hours – account for anesthesia, the procedure itself, and recovery time|
|Invasive?||No – the Cavi-Lipo machine is used on the outside of your body||Yes – small incisions are made, but shouldn’t leave scars|
|What happens during the treatment?||The Cavi-Lipo machine is run across the targeted area and uses ultrasound waves to zap your fat cells, liquefying the fat and destroying the fat cell. The liquefied fat is removed via the lymphatic system and ultimately exits your body when you urinate.||A tube with a laser is it is inserted under your skin and in between the layers of fat. The laser liquefies the fat, which is suctioned out of the tube.|
|What happens after my treatment?||There’s no down time – you can go right back to work or go about the rest of your day.||Someone will need to pick you up since you may be a little woozy from the pain meds.|
|What pain will I have?||None. You could have some reddening of the skin, worst case scenario||You may have bruising, swelling and be sore.|
|When will I see results?||You should notice a difference immediately, but it may take 48 hours to really say wow!||You will have loose skin where fat has been removed, but your skin will return to “nearly” the stage it was at before you had the procedure. More results will come in 6-8 weeks as your skin gets tighter.|
|Is it expensive?||Depending on the area that you are working on, the number of treatments required can vary. Even 7-10 Cavi treatments generally cost less than most body contouring procedures.||You should probably only need one treatment but it’s going to be pricey . . . plastic surgeon pricey, perhaps.|
