Whether you’re in a relationship or not, we all need to practise a little bit more self-love. You owe it to yourself to take a breath, slow down and treat yourself. Girl, whatever you’re relational status on Facebook, you do not need someone else, or someone’s permission to feel loved or feel valued.
You should be treating yourself life the Princess you are, every single day.
I wholeheartedly believe you should make time regularly to really give yourself a break, and show yourself some love, and self-care, And as Valentines day around the corner, I thought it would be a great time to share 50 ideas you can practise self-care and love yourself this Valentines day.
