How to Practice Self Care on Valentine's Day
I love Valentine's Day. I love the idea of getting dressed up and going out. Every since I was a little girl, getting dressed up played a part in the holiday. My first valentine, my Mom, would always by me chocolate and a beautiful dress. From a very young age, I realized when you look good, you feel good.
As most women are unapologetically busy, taking this time is so important. Date or not...invest back into yourself this Valentine's Day. Here are a couple of suggestions I have for making the most of this love day, and put yourself first.
1. Dress Up for Yourself.
Dressing up is a form of self care. Think about the time and energy you put into your best looks. You're pampering yourself and don't even realize it! I dress up for myself first, Husband second.
2. Take a long indulgent BATH.
I'm talking hitting up LUSH, grabbing champagne and a flute. I want you to put rose petals in your water and bath oils that take your mind to a new place. Indulge in YOU.
3. Create a "Love Jams" soundtrack and put on red lipstick.
Turn on Spotify, and eat chocolate covered strawberries...in lingerie...with your face BEAT... to the Gods. You are your own #WCW babe.
4. Gal-entine's Day just got LUXE.
Call up the girls in your life, and create your own Sex in the City walk down the street. Watch them all stare at the magic gracing the restaurant. Can you say #squadgoals?
5. Write Yourself a Love Letter.
Remind yourself why you are so amazing. Love should start here first, and what a great day to gush over YOU! How empowering (and adorable)!
6. Have a Valentine's Day Photoshoot- starring YOU!
