As Valentine’s Day slowly approaches, a large portion of the web is flooded with gift guides of every kind, and while I love all of these helpful shopping tips and tricks, I wanted to turn to that one word that this holiday all comes down to – love.
Gifts can be a great way to present your loved ones with a little token of appreciation. But rather than just focus on those around us, I also wanted to remind you all that Valentine’s Day is a good time to give some attention to the one person that you neglect the most. And that’s none other than… you.
That’s why this Valentine’s Day, I wanted to remind you all that self-love is so important and essential to your well-being, and I’m doing so by sharing all of these beautiful and delicate pieces from Blue Box Boutique‘s Valentines Collection. All of these jewelry pieces resonate with me on a deeper level and reflect some of my favorite self-love quotes and mantras.
“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” – Buddha
This simple bar pendant features the words “love and be loved” in elegant cursive writing, which reminds us that other than loving others, we have to extend that same love to ourselves as well. This minimal and classic design is delicate yet precious and is the perfect little reminder to extend self-love to the most important person in your life – you.
“Be faithful to that which exists within yourself.” – André Gide
I’ve also been loving these elegant yet subtle studs because they mimic the beating of a heart, serving as a reminder to listen to my heart in difficult moments instead of always turning to external factors to guide my decisions. We need to remember – as long as we’re faithful to who we are, it will never be a wrong choice.
“A healthy self-love means we have no compulsion to justify to ourselves or others why we take vacations, why we sleep late, why we buy new shoes, why we spoil ourselves from time to time. We feel comfortable doing things which add quality and beauty to life.” – Andrew Matthews
And last of all, this “Live Laugh Love” bangle is one of my favorites. The secret message is inscribed underneath the bangle, so it serves as a subtle note of self-encouragement to remember to enjoy the small moments in life because they’re the moments that we’ll look back on with fondness at the end.
This Valentine’s Day, I want to remind all of you to not only use this special day to show your appreciation and love for those around you, but I also want to encourage all of you to practice self-love because your greatest responsibility is to love yourself and to know you are enough.
Blue Box Boutique was also kind enough to extend their support for this self-love initiative by sharing a 20% OFF discount code (CLOTHESTOYOUUU) for all of you, so remember to spread self-love and get some of these amazing pieces for yourself and the other amazing women (and men) in your life!
