Style: Treat Yourself: Valentine's Day

You guys, IT'S ALMOST VALENTINE'S DAY. Remember how I said Valentine's Day was one of my favorite holidays? Well, the celebrating for this girl starts now (sorry for the red, pink and white holiday decorations, Jack...)

If you're wondering where you've seen this post before, I guest posted on Run Shop Eat Repeat on Saturday! I actually ended up loving this post and the message behind it so much, that I thought I needed to share it again :) 

As I explained last year, having a boyfriend and being in love is not the reason I love Valentine's Day. Quite the contrary - I loved Valentine's Day welllllll before I ever had a special guy to celebrate it with. The holiday really is a combination of my most favorite things - chocolate, jewelry, great food, desserts galore, sweet music and romantic movies. And the best part was, I never, ever felt I needed to have significant other to be able to truly celebrate and enjoy myself on Valentine's Day. The more I think about it, some of my favorite, most memorable Valentine's Days were the days I spent treating myself - whether it was a mani/pedi, chocolate, a new piece of jewelry or a fancy new haircut. While it's nice to have someone to love (I like to celebrate that relationship every day), I think, deep down, the most important relationship you have is the one with yourself. And in my opinion, there's no better day than Valentine's Day to celebrate that relationship. So whether you're in a committed relationship or happily single, it's time to treat yourself - you deserve it!

With that, here are a few things I'm swooning over this Valentine's Day (men's Valentine's Day gift guide coming soon!)
