Valentine’s Day is getting closer. It is the first big holiday after Christmas and a great chance to get some thoughtful presents. Then, why do so many women dread and loathe the day? Probably, everyone asking if you have got a date (when you do not) is not helping. However, let us look at Valentine’s under a different light . If Valentine’s becomes a day to celebrate love (not only being part of a couple), it gets a whole new meaning.
Look around and you will see loved ones and people who adore you all around. Look at the mirror and glare at the person you love the most, that is, yourself . Why should you wait to have a boyfriend to receive a grand surprise? Treat yourself! For this year, no flowers, no candy, chocolate or cards. No, thank you. All we want for Valentine’s Day is… jewellery. No better way of rewarding your worth.
PS. If you do have a boyfriend send him the following wishlist.
