Why You Shouldn't Hate on Valentine's Day + Outfit Inspo

Let me start this by saying I completely agree with the idea that Valentine's Day is a ridiculous holiday made up by Hallmark and all those other cards/chocolate companies to capitalize on such a market. However, sometimes everyone needs a reminder to share their love with those in their lives, so it can have its benefits. We can all get a little too busy and too involved in our own lives to realize when someone we care about could just use a hug. Valentine's Day is the perfect reminder to spread the love! 

I am strongly opposed to anyone who uses it as an excuse to throw a self-pity party because they're newly single, have been single for a while, or just aren't near their loved one. 

My take is this: you don't need to have a significant other to actually enjoy Valentine's Day. (YES I said it!) Nowhere is it stated specifically that you must spend the day with a boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse/etc.

So if you are single: find some BFF's and watch a movie or go out for dinner and a movie. Exchange gifts and cards, tell them how much you appreciate them. 

Valentine's Day is an excuse to dress up, buy a ton of chocolate and eat it all at once, and go have some fun whilst sharing your love with whomever you choose to! 

And I don't know about you, but getting a card from a friend saying they love me is just as special, if not more, as getting one from the person you're shacked up with!

So whether you're heading out with friends or your lover, here's some inspiration! I apologize for the lateness on this one, I meant to put it up earlier but honestly fell asleep the other night before getting to finish (eep!)
