6 ideas to give yourself and your beauty-addicted friends some love
Like it or not, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and the internet is full of gift suggestions for your partners. It may be quite stressful, especially if you don’t have one. However, the occasion itself should make you think about love in general and how to treat yourself and your beauty-addicted friends.
To me, February 14 was an excuse to complete this mini-gift guide: I love the idea of themed products, packed in pink and red, featuring heart patterns and unmistakable names that resonate with the celebration.
So, instead of stressing about being single or partnered, try to think about Valentine’s Day as an excuse to make your loved ones happy or, simply, to celebrate life. After all, you’re alive. You’re heart is beating. You deserve at least a new lipstick.
