Valentine’s Day 2016 Recap

Valentine’s Day was a three day event for me this year. Especially with this being our last Valentine’s day before we gain a new love in our life. I was so thankful to have my new GlossyBox come in for our date night Saturday. It prepared me for a night out with the Mister.

And this box was so pretty! I swear GlossyBox has the most decorative boxes ever. I’ve never received a box so well put together. This will definitely be a box I keep for my decor for my office.

I call this box — Skin Prep! It had the perfect products to have your skin glowing throughout the night. The Mask, the Cleanser, and the Eye Gel hydrated my skin and allowed major moisture for my troublesome dryness.

The primer (which I forgot that I love!) and the lip balm were perfect for my beauty canvas.

I decided I wanted to dress up a bit for the dinner and a movie. I wore my colorful skirt that I had totally forgotten about. The Mister and I usually stay home for Lovers Day, but decided that we would only go where we could pick our seats and set reservations. I think it’s best to have a plan and not waiting until the last minute to plan for V-day!

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! Remember that self love is the most important love.

Valentine’s Day Occasion & Outfit Ideas

Most of you are excited about the national love day and some of you aren’t. Some see this an opportunity to get close to a new friend. Others get a reminder of them being without someone, but don’t let this day determine the way you feel. Here are some tips on what to do and how to look doing it.
Self Love
You are single and all of your friends are going out with their significant others, but you are not the type to fret. You deserve the most even when you don’t have a guy to do things for you. Pamper yourself! Make an appointment to your local spa for a pamper me session. Since it’s a bit warm these days, choose a bright colored jean with a stripped shirt. Wear a basic black or nude flat shoe to compliment you comfortable preppy style. Enjoy yourself and show yourself some love.

Girl’s Night Out
Who needs a guy when you have your girls right?! They’ve been there threw breakups and always had your back. Get your BFFs and hit the town! Choose a LBD (Little Black Dress) that highlights your silhouette. For a pop of color, add a blue or yellow blazer or cardigan for interest because who wants to be in pink or red.

With Your Honey
Typically, couples always make dinner reservations to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
You want to look sleek and sexy for your special someone for this occasion. Try a strapless mini-dress or halter dress and platform shoes with should-dusting sparkle earrings. If it gets chilly, grab a shawl or scarf to cover your shoulders. You are for sure to have a good time and He’ll definitely see the beauty in you!

What you wear, make sure you are comfortable and feel good about you are wearing. Which of these do you plan to partake in? What do you plan to wear? I’d love to know!
Be yourself and have fun! Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Well, Valentine’s day is almost here and it’s time to celebrate! Okay, you may be an anti-Valentine’s Day person, but you can celebrate loving yourself and being single! I say it’s a win-win. 🙂

This outfit shows that you don’t have to wear the pink or red just because of the holiday. The pop of purple is girly enough for me..

What are you planning on doing for Valentine’s day?

If you are single, buy YOURSELF some flowers, chocolate or even something you’ve been dying to treat yourself to. Always remember that you have to LOVE yourself before you love anyone else! 😉
