a little romance

Valentine's Day. This time of year everything in the stores seems to be red, pink or chocolate. Even if you don't have a romantic sweetheart I still love celebrating this holiday! I think one of my best memories of Valentine's Day was in college when I decorated our apartment with pink & red EVERYWHERE and made only girls come over for cosmos. All the girls were required to wear the holiday colors. When I was little my mom use to make a big Valentine's breakfast and decorate the table with hearts and give us little gifts.

Yes, some people think it is a Hallmark holiday, but I kind of love it! Why not buy yourself a little something to celebrate you or treat your bestie to a little surprise. I don't believe that Valentine's Day is only a American holiday meant for red roses and teddy bears. I think the holiday is about celebrating love everywhere and everyone!

{Paulette macarons in L.A. deliver! And they have pink ones!}

{This gum "We met on Facebook" is so funny!}

{Flowers in any women's life are much appreciated!

{I heart monograms! A personalized bracelet or ring from Sarah Chloe}

Eat a cupcake, drink some bubbly, paint your nails shiny pink, eat a box of candy hearts, watch a sappy romantic comedy, dance, yell, sing, whatever it is, celebrate the day.
