I just wanted to leave you with a few impressions of Valentines Day to in celebration of the day of Love. Isn't it wonderful that we have a day dedicated to the most beautiful thing on earth, Love? I know Valentines Day can be so overrated and "just about the gifts" or making single people feel more miserable about being lonely than they already are. I know Valentines Day shouldn't be singling out a day to love, because everyday should be a day to love.
But I think it's nice we have a day on which the theme of love is omnipresent and we can appreciate the fact that we are able to fall in love, share and spread love and love another. May it be your boyfriend, your girlfriend, your family, your best friend, your pet or simply someone you love.
What you make of Valentines Day is entirely up to you.
No, I don't have a boyfriend to be snuggling up to and expecting chocolate and bouquet of roses from.
Yet I choose to spread love and be in love with the fact that everyone is sending love. I stay completely blind to the anti-valentines-day advocates. I see what I want to see, and that is love being around at least for a timespan of 24 hours.
Valentines day for me is all about red Lips and roses. And red dresses maybe? So cliché!
This year I was very happy to be surprised with a bouquet of roses from a handsome guy dressed in a tuxedo at my door step. Thank you Durex for this! We even took some selfies. Check it on Insta.
Beauty-wise I stay simple with my fav mascara by YSL, black eyeliner highlighted with gold on the end of the wing (YSL babydoll eyeliner in gold!) and red lips. This year I choose the new Style Lip Lacquer in matte red.
Special gifts can be hard to find for Valentines Day. I've fallen in love with the idea of love locks.
Lock a dream in devotion to love yourself and putting you first every once in a while more, lock your friendship with your best friend or lock your love with your lover. I got super cute locks from NOTHS.
You can find them on www.noths.de or www.notonthehighstreet.de and have them engraved as well.
Put that on your gift list for next Valentines Day!
I hope you guys a had wonderful day in dedication of your special someone.
