Who do YOU love?

Well, it's official. February is upon us. The month some people love, and some people love to hate. With hearts, flowers and cupids all around, it either makes you gush with love, or want to poke the next person who says "awww" in the eye.

We hear ya...and although we are all about the love and mushy stuff, we think it's equally important, if not more, to show love where it matters most. To yourself.

As Buddha put it: 

You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection. 

Self-love is my thing this year. As much as I have an abundance of love and affection from my Mr., I know that in order to truly be happy, that love must come from within. In an effort to stop being so hard on myself, take pride in the things I have done, and pat myself on the back every once in a while, I've realized it's not selfish to sometimes be selfish. It's essential. 

So - If you're feeling the same, I encourage you to take all the Love Day hoopla and run with it. Be inspired to love YOU. Indulge in a spa day, get a new hair style, or buy yourself something pretty.   We've got that last one covered - which hasn't been a challenge with all the amazing, meaningful pieces that have been spotted on our shelves lately. Here are some of our favourites that add just the right amount of jewel, with a little pinch of self-love.

These wrap-around leather bracelets from Foxy Originals, serve as delicate reminders to live your best life and love YOU.

Our new line of bracelets entitled "Life Charm Bangles", each come carded with a different quote/meaning. Growth, happiness, and love are the common themes.

The Wearable Words Collection (necklaces and bracelets) by Foxy Originals, is great for adults as well as little ones. Our favourite in this line is "Dreams Come True".
So, whatever the case may be for you this February, we hope you indulge in a little "self-love" and give your heart the attention (or bling) it deserves.

With Heart,
