A Different Kind of Valentine

   Ah, Valentine's Day. Some love it and some, well, not so much. I'm not here to gush about wearing pink and red or how to style your date for a night out, but rather to help you be your own Valentine! Give yourself a gift that you've been swooning over, or something that you'll be able to use every day. Even little things like nail polish, makeup, office supplies or a comfy pair of socks to keep warm for the rest of the winter. It's great to have a Valentine, but we should all treat ourselves, too.
   There's nothing I love more than giving myself a gift here and there. Whether it's something big or small, it's fun to have something new that you've been wanting for a while. If you want to stick with the V-Day theme, go for pink or red items. This way you're festive and taking part in the holiday even if you don't want to. Or if you've wanted something random, treat yourself with that no matter the color, theme, etc.
   February is definitely a cold month, and with six more weeks (or more) of winter to go, your best bet will be to get yourself something cozy or useful for this kind of weather! I know I'm all about my wool socks from J.Crew. They're fun, they're colorful and they're super warm. I wear them with basically anything, and when they match my outfit, I let them peep out of my boots! This is definitely a fun idea if you're stuck in cold weather. 
   Another thing you can't go wrong with is nail polish. It's always fun to give yourself a mani/pedi when you're snowed in. Once again, if you're into Valentine's Day, buy yourself some reds, whites and pinks for colors. If not, go for your favorite color or for a warm, dark winter hue.
   Lastly, you can never go wrong buying yourself a cute planner if you haven't done so already! They're so useful, and you can find quirky-designed ones just about everywhere. I have a Lilly Pulitzer agenda, and it's the best. There's plenty of room to write in tasks for each day, even weekends. It comes with so many fun stickers and full calendars between months, so it's fun and easy to organize everything you have going on! Not to mention they come in the most fun Lilly patterns. If you're bold, bright and you want to keep organized, this is the gift for you.
   So what if you have a Valentine? Go for it and get yourself something that you'll enjoy. Even if it's a bag of your favorite candy, you're still bound to be satisfied. Stick with the V-Day theme or do you own thing, just don't forget to enjoy the day!
You can all be my Valentines.
