THIS VALENTINES DAY
Everybody likes to focus on relationships with boyfriends, girlfriends and best friends on Valentines day–and the gift shopping for these people in the weeks leading up to it. Whether you have a romantical relationship or not, we encourage you to think about a different relationship this V-day: the one with yourself.
When’s the last time you turned off your phone, shut the world out and did something relaxing (treating yourself to the local day spa for a $20 dunk in its hot tubs) or that you simply looove to to (like face masks, nail painting sessions and watching a sad movie)? With school, sports, friends, work, parties and internships, were betting it’s been awhile since you’ve given yourself a little love.
So this Feb. 14th, sidestep the obligatory chocolate hearts and other red and pink-themed gifts for your friends, girlfriend or boyfriend. Instead, give yourself at least 45 minutes to hook yourself up with some love.
And if your pampering time requires presents for yourself, might we suggest a battery-operated boyfriend or this basket of pampering goodness from Teens Turning Green, which includes earth-friendly chocolates, face wash, hair care and lots of over good love:
We particularly love the included apple & bee makeup bag:
So cute, right?
All the money from its sales pay for the Teens Turning Green Summer Internship Program, which gives teens around the world the opportunity to build new health and environmentally-focused initiatives–so you end up helping others–even if you are indulging yourself.
