While valentine's day has lost some of it's meaning with modern advertisement and social pressure, it's still nice to have a day to dedicate to love and friendship. Don't feel like you have to give in to buying cheap presents and cheesy cards to please anyone. You can design your own valentine's day and make it just as unique as you please.
It's all about spending time together
Whether you're celebrating with a partner or a friend, what really matters is being in the moment. You can plan a lovely evening and not even leave the house! Light up some candles, make a soft playlist and have an activity for you both to enjoy. It could be cooking a delicious meal together, taking a bubble bath with essential oils, giving each other massages or just simply having a movie night.
The joy of giving
Self-made and well-thought-of presents are the best. You can really show your love for someone through something you actually took the time to make. It could be a card or a letter, a homemade candle, body scrubs or some raw chocolate. Use your imagination!
use some magic
Using superfoods like Maca or Ashwagandha can boost your libido and give your valentine's day a little magic. Try our Lover Smoothie and feel the spark!
Don't forget about yourself
Spend this day treating your ultimate bestie, yourself. Do all the little things that bring you joy. Whether it's a simple matcha latte or listening to empowering music (like the ultimate babe Kali Uchis ) and dancing alone. Keep in mind that you don't need a special occasion to treat yourself though, practising self-love should be a daily thing ♡
