ohhh the day of love. I really really love this holiday because its all about celebrating being kind to one another(not just your significant other).

Lets be real here, a lot of the time we are surrounded by news of tragedies and evil. Social media, as fun as it can be, also tends to thrive on the negative; consequently we are exposed to more bad than good. Take the news for example( I could elaborate but i think we all get it…).

Valentines Day.

Whether or not you have a significant other or not, you can celebrate  family, friends, coworkers, gosh you can celebrate loving YOURSELF! So in my opinion Valentines day is truly UNIVERSAL LOVE DAY… and it’s a holiday our world seriously needs these days.

Kind of the typical gift guide coming up, but figured I would share some of our go to gifting ideas for Valentines day! Links provided! So… happy idea shopping, and hope you guys find something you actually feel like investing in for yourself or a loved one! XO,,

There are so many other categories you could venture into … anthropologie has so many cute accessories( bags, jewels, sleepwear, makeup, candles, ect.) If you are in a pinch, go here because they are middle to upper in the cost range and easily accessible  (you can buy something nice// affordable at the same time!)

A LITTLE MORE on what to buy for your MANS 😉

For guys, Link Soul has cute golf wear and some awesome prints! ( you could get one framed at hobby lobby!) Wall art is super cool and thoughtful! ( as long as you really know the style of who you are purchasing for) linking their site below!


you can also go the watch route! They have such a range in price point so i suggest going to Nordstrom/Macys/Dillards and just taking a look in the jewelry department and buy based off your budget! ( If you can afford a NICE NICE watch, you can always check the actual jewelry stores!) And of course the always typical cologne route hehe,,,, honestly sometimes your man just needs a fresh scent, am I right ladies? I bought Alec a really nice brand one Christmas and its lasted! It was so worth the money!

linking that scent here: its PRADA BLACK
