Whether you find yourself attached or not this Valentine's Day, I think it's a great time for a little decadence. Celebrate romantic love, platonic love, present love, future love, partnership, independence, or anything in between…and whatever you choose, celebrate it well. Here's a few ideas to make this or any week feel extra special.
1) If your budget allows it, book yourself a massage or facial (heads up, I hear the best facialist in Nashville is accepting new clients…615-884-7721…you're welcome). If you're looking to spend just slightly less, take a long bubble bath, throw on a Sephora One Use Mask (it may or may not make you look like a serial killer but it does wonders for your skin!), and enjoy the magazine of your choosing.
2) Eat a rich dessert…I mean really, really rich. If you can take more than three bites, it's not rich enough. Think flour-less chocolate cake, a really good creme brûlée or flan, cheesecake or tiramisu, and so on and so forth. You may regret it at some point, but that point will definitely not be whilst you eat it.
3) Buy a new perfume…even if it's a tester size. While I tend to stick to one signature scent at a time, I enjoy the occasional switch up. A spritz of perfume is a beauty ritual we can all share with Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn...even Cleopatra! There's something kind of neat to that, don't you think? If you're looking for a new scent, a few of my personal favorites include Dior Poison, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, and Lolita Lempicka Eau de Parfum.
