YeeeeeY it’s Valentine’s Day !
I know right – commercial festivity of the year, nightmare for lonely hearts club, etc.etc. I know all that, I’ve been single during Valentine’s Day for most of my life.
NO BIGGIE, ladies & gents…trust me. I’ve got a post full of love & ideas & things to read for you & you only, my mostly beloved followers.
You may not have found that special someone, but you have surely found that special blog … it’s me & I love youuuu! let me show you how much.
♥ first thing you need to keep in mind, it’s to avoid Low-Grade Misery towards yourself. You know what I mean? that constant, day-to-day self-hate that doesn’t kill you but definately makes you weaker. That continuous stream of this doesn’t look good on me, I shouldn’t eat this, I shouldn’t talk so loud, I’m ugly when I do this-that-blah-blah-blah. Give yourself a present for this Valentine’s Day: STOP. You are enough. You are OK. Everyday.
♥ before you even start celebrating, take a moment & Get Your Spark Back … or simply, learn How to Survive to Bad Mood. I know that this time of the year can be a little sad, in certain ways…but there’s no better time to learn how to get back up when you feel down, & experiment different ways to make yourself feel better no matter what!
♥ & now that you’re all set up … Start a Gratitude Jar! what a cute little thought, for you, for your lover, for your friends…whatever. Make it the focus of 2014, all right? & maybe you can plan a “gratitude date” for yourself, for next year’s Valentine! so that it’ll be no more important if you have a date with someone else, ‘cause it’s gonna be the day you open the Gratitude Jar & find all the good, loving, lucky moments you lived.
♥ make something! yes, why not? if you have no plan for the night – tho, remember, single friends valentine’s parties are the best! – dedicate your body & sould to DIY projects. You know, one of those you keep dreaming about & procrastinating at the same time? it’s time to get a move on! Bake a cute treat, make a paper garland, try to replicate these origami butterflies, or make bracelets for you & your friends, to show some love…in the end, that’s what Valentine’s Day is all about.
♥ last but – omg no – not least .. dress up! this is a fashion blog after all. & there is always a good reason to dress up: going to a party, to a romantic dinner, or curling up under a blanket with a huge cup of hot chocolate & your favourite movie. Yes, they are all great reasons, let me show you how.
so finally, allow me to tell you one last thing, before you dive into this lovey-dovey day:
I love you.
