As we all know, Valentine's Day is the day we celebrate love. It is no longer a day reserved for couples alone, but rather, one in which we can send cards to family and friends to tell them how much we care. It's also a day to spoil ourselves, because loving yourself is the keynote to true happiness. Duh. Now that we've gone through all the cliches that allow us to acknowledge and perhaps "enjoy" Valentine's Day, let's go through a list of ways that fashion girls choose to celebrate this holiday. Ready? Here's my top five.
V-Day Inspired Nail Art
On this special week in February, Pinterest is flooded with Valentine's Day manicures to brighten up your day. Whether you have a man or not, this is just another opportunity to get your nails done. Rather than going for the basic red or pink, try some crazy nail art and get creative this year. It's the simplest way to enjoy the day without the flowers.
Let's get one thing straight. A woman must ALWAYS feel sexy whether there is a man in her life or not. Hence, the excuse to buy sexy lingerie for Valentine's Day. After all, you never know when you'll need it.
If you've always wanted that pair of statement shoes, now is your chance. Since V-Day falls on the weekend, what better way to showcase a pair of bold red stilettos than on the streets during Valentine's Day?
If you're not usually inclined to wear a red lip, this is your chance to try it out. If you have nobody to kiss on V-Day, this is the perfect time to sport this bold lip color that women love and men hate to kiss.
In this day and age, who needs a man to buy you jewellery? Any true fashion girl can buy her own sleek silvery heart on a chain and this is the perfect excuse to justify this type of purchase, wouldn't you agree?
What are YOU doing this Valentine's Day. Have you finished your shopping yet?
