Happy Valentine's Day


Valentine's Day is all about love; love for one another, love for all living things, and self-love. I want to emphasize that last one....SELF LOVE. Repeat after me: I am loveable. I am important. I am worthy of great things. I am strong. I am kind. I am smart. And there is no one like me in this world. My very existence is ENOUGH. 

Always remember, "If you're not happy single, you won't be happy taken. Happiness comes from within, not from men (or women)." If you're spending this Valentine's Day. Single. Take some time to self reflect. Dig deep. Peel that onion. Nurture that baby. And just know, that you're not alone (p.s. I'm single too). If you're spending V-Day with your loved one, enjoy and cherish these special moments:).

And just cause I love this quote and I had to share it, "I'm not weird. I'm limited edition;)!"  Happy Valentine's Day, Friends!

  44. Totally in love the military jacket. I have a similar one from Zara, but I've never dressed it up. Now I can use this outfit of yours as reference on how to dress it up tastefully. This is a nice Valentine's day look that breaks from the conventional pink or red outfit. Your red lip speaks for itself and it's cool that it matches your bag. Thanks for posting the info about the lipstick!
