HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY

The most precious day in February

Oh! It is Valentine’s Day. Hearts, flowers, boxes of chocolates and a strange half-naked little guy flying around shooting arrows at people… Better yet, jewelry stores are already hitting us up with commercials in order to lure us to step in. No wonder most guys are dazed, confused and running scared.

Does everybody believe in Valentine? I would truly hope so. First of all, this day is not only for lovers but everyone else as well. Valentine’s Day is for everyone to show love to those whom they desire and have love for. This includes children showing gratitude to their parents and loved ones for sticking it out and not losing faith in them. It’s for brothers to show love to sisters, sisters to brothers, cousins to cousins, neighbors to neighbors, friends to friends and lovers to lovers.

We all need love. We all want love. We all don’t give love. Sometimes we get so caught up in wondering what someone else has got in store for us, and sometimes, we tend to be sold-out of love when it is time to reciprocate. Please, take the time out to think of what you can do to show your loved ones how you feel about them. Remember that bigger is not always better. Sometimes simplicity is the key, in other words it’s the thought that counts. We all have an abundance of options to show love and affections.

As a matter of fact, for Valentine’s Heart Week, the Heart Foundation invites organiza tions and businesses around the world to wear an item of RED clothing to work.
What to Wear: Regardless of what your style is, if you’re a romantic at heart and love valentine’s day, you will want to wear something special on this day. So should you wear? The answer to this question really depends on one major factor. Where are you going? Depending on your Valentine’s Day destination, you may want to wear a cocktail dress or a pair or dark denim, a silky blouse and a nice jacket just in case it gets chilly. If you’re unsure about where your date will be taking you this Valentine’s Day, ask them to let you in on the dress code so you won’t feel under or over dress. Make sure you wear the right accessories to accent the look you desire. Valentine’s day is packed with sexual appeal and for that reason you owe it to your self to dab a little perfume one your wrists before you meet your sweet heart. Remember; don’t go too heavy on your fragrance.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY
Enjoy!
