Now, what kind of internet bestie would I be if I let Valentine’s Day go uncelebrated? Who cares if you’re single, married, divorced, or any other box you can check to define your status to the world. Self-love is a year-round thing, my friend. And I for one love any excuse to celebrate. So today I’m rounding up my current loves that are a bit luxurious, luscious, and totally worthy of your time & energy. Let’s get started because you absolutely need to know what to buy yourself for Valentine’s Day (or to tell your partner). You deserve it after all.
What To Buy For Valentine’s Dayshared this on insta the other day and it made for a good laugh). full week-long review on my Youtube channel covering everything from how I felt it worked during really anxious moments to my everyday use. So if you have more questions about if it’s worth it for you, definitely check it out. However, I love mine and the cover is washable which is essential with 3 pups. Dry Farms Wine. Here’s why: less sugar means I can have a glass and feel satisfied. Typically, wine leaves me wanting more wine which means I want carbs because my blood sugar has been spiked & kicks in my cravings. I don’t have this problem with Dry Farms. I can simply enjoy my glass with my book at night (or my current Smithsonian channel obsession) and be content. It also means less inflammation and easier recovery from workouts. One of the things I’ve noticed as I’ve transitioned to a paleo-based diet is that I don’t have the same sinus & inflammatory issues I had before. When I consume traditional wine or refined sugar, I find that it takes me days longer to recover from a hard workout as well as my hands start cramping due to inflammation. Dry Farms means I can enjoy my glass of wine and still honor what works best for my body. conversations they are having on Instagram stories. I also think that the stigma around vibrators, women’s pleasure, and enjoying sex has a long way to go. For now, let’s talk about the Arc. If you’re a single gal or just have a strong preference for solo pleasure, the Arc gives you multiple options. And because not all women orgasm the same way, this is a great multi-tool for exploring your own pleasure. Or to use with a partner to help you explore together. Dame also makes lots of other great products if you find you prefer a specific type of stimulation. As well, they make items that work for both partners.
A Gift Of The HeartSometimes I think the best gift we can give ourselves is knowing we’ve helped someone else. Whether that’s financially or by sending a letter, there are so many ways to show love. So before we continue with the guide, I wanted to take a moment to remind you that maybe the best gift you can give yourself this Valentine’s Day is the gift of hope. Maybe you write a letter to future you to read in a year. Or maybe you’ve felt extraordinarily blessed lately and want to give to a local classroom or women’s shelter. Whatever the case may be, if you’re giving yourself a gift this year, let it be something that brings you joy.
If you read my manifesting post, you’ll know I’m all about being intentional with what you’re calling into your life. And having a candle that you light that reminds you to focus on that specific thing is a great way to do it. It’s a small cue that helps trigger your brain to focus in a certain direction which is everything when you’re trying to create new habits & manifest big things.
Of course, I’m eyeing up the money candle as my goal for 2021 is expansion both with WSS and financially. I want to be able to do some big things in the world so shifting my energy around money is major for me. Plus, My Secret Scent is female-founded & features some gorgeous candles. Sold!follow me on the gram, you may have noticed a few new pieces in the wardrobe rotation recently. I did a poll on stories the other day asking what you wanted to see more of and loads of you said fashion content. So stay tuned: it’s coming. But to break out of my rut and add a few new pieces in, I treated myself to another round of Rent The Runway for January. If you’ve never heard of RTR, I’ve done a full review here. I managed to get almost every piece right this time. And I fell in love with my purse. Nevertheless, it was the perfect little temporary seasonal update to let me try new styles, add in a fun piece or two and play with a sassy cut dress without having to worry about the dry cleaning. It’s the best! this clear cup or this pink mug because we love an aesthetic moment. But if you’re looking for a luxury gift to give yourself or maybe you’re just ready to make your coffee habit a bit more sustainable, I highly recommend the Terra Kaffe. Full review is on the blog so be sure to check it out! pullover in denim.
A Massage (Or A Gift Card For Future You)As I’m writing this post, I’m trying not to be distracted by Instagram and the conversation Good Golden Creative & I have started about massages. They are life. And while I know that not everywhere currently has options available for this, if you can & feel comfortable, your body deserves a break from the stress it’s been carrying. More than you probably realize, to be honest. For my Southern gals, I recently did a trip to The Henderson Resort & Spa to try out their Intuitive Wellness Massage. It included everything from dry brushing to using the gua sha on your body and of course a full body massage. I did a full breakdown of their current Covid regulations on stories (saved in the 30A highlight). So be sure to check it out! read my review this may be shocking to you but I’m caving. Everyone that I know that has one, loves it. However, I don’t think that necessarily means everyone will love it. If nothing else, I would recommend gifting yourself the app for a month or two to try. I’m currently loving the running classes as I’ve been working to build up strength so I can go farther. But with the addition of The Year Of Yes classes in partnership with Shonda Rhimes, Beyonce classes and so many other themes, there’s something for everyone. Brussel sprouts with Garlic Aioli recipe yesterday (inspired by my fave at La Crema). It’s divine. We use our little convection/air fryer combo constantly. I test a majority of the WSS recipes in it. It’s so good plus it’s does so many things which means you don’t have to worry about giving up precious kitchen counter space for 17 different appliances. Alrighty, friends, I think that’s everything! So many good gifts for Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or someone else, I hope you found something you love. And be sure to come let me know on Instagram. I love chatting with you! Until next time. Xoxo, Savvy
