Valentine’s Day Haul | Gift Ideas

Before jumping into this lovey dovey post there are a few things I would like to address. Firstly my sincere apologies for missing Wednesday’s post day. I was not in love with the content idea and never want to post something I am not excited for you all to see. On another note I am now back on instagram!! Yay!!

Sparkle Again| Jewelry Cleaning

Jewelry can be tricky to figure out how to clean which is why I am sharing with you my secret of choice. This product is extremely versatile which is why it is my go to. Not only does it clean like a dream it is also environmentally safe and biodegradable. I am sharing with you the step by step guide to use it as well as revealing it to you. Make it sparkle again ladies, just in time for Valentines day!

The Truth Behind Sizing

Ever wonder why you are never the same size across all clothing brands? Possibly freaked out after you assumed you gained weight when you were a size two last trip but a size six this time. It’s a mental battle, which is exactly why brands do it. Officially titled vanity sizing by the industry, to conger up insecurities to increase buying power by women who are pleasantly pleased to find out they are a size XXS (extra, extra skinny).

Memory Lifeline 

Apple products are a blessing but also a curse when you do not own only Apple products. This little guy takes away the constant headache of having an android and a MacBook. Even if an Apple product isn’t slowing you down it is a fairly simple way to share multiple photos with others on the go quickly. Before using this device I recommend charging the phone, as it drains battery life when downloading over a hundred photos. I learned this the hard way after attempting to pick and choose certain photos I wanted to transfer (well over 1,000).

Ways to Treat your Valentine

Do not be that boring cookie cutter person who brings roses and plans a reservation for two (unless that’s what they asked for or really enjoy). Try being different, think a little out of the Hallmark holiday. Even swinging by Starbucks or Jamba Juice to pick up their drink of choice on a random day shows love. Show interest in their hobby: buy tickets to a show (not a movie), dart painting, rock climbing, race car driving, archery, horseback riding, dancing, music or have a photoshoot.

Treat Yourself

While February is known as the month of love, people too often forget to love themselves. School is starting to crack down on assignments to be done with midterms crawling their way towards us. Whatever your kryptonite, here are some ways to destress without breaking the bank, and skip that pricy massage you tell yourself you want, but never make the time for As a fellow broke college student, I got you.

Surprise Package

Honestly February is a bitter sweet month filled of perfection expectations. It is easy to forget that showing love is not just permitted to one day of the year, Valentine’s day. Instead of stressing about one upping each other on what your sweetheart got you compared to your friends, take a step back. Remember all the things they do for you the other 364 days of the year. Have you been showing love too? This “holiday” should be used as an evaluation to check in on how you personally are making others feel special.
