This Valentine’s Day, are you feeling the love? If not, it’s time to dump the habits that bring you down … and instead develop some new ones that will encourage you to shine a light on your own beauty.
Here are six ways to show yourself some love. (Because you definitely deserve it.)
Leave it: Criticizing your body or wearing clothes that don’t flatter you.
Love it: Finding and wearing clothes you love (and that love you back).
Leave it: Buying random stuff (and feeling bad because you never wear it).
Love it: Shopping with purpose and going home with stuff you love and will wear.
Leave it: Skipping makeup because you don’t know or can’t be bothered
Love it: Using makeup to highlight your natural beauty (and having fun while you’re at it).
Leave it: Loving how others look and wishing you looked better.
Love it: Feeling confident and fabulous … because you love how YOU look.
Leave it: Wearing clothes you only “sort of” like and wishing you looked better
Love it: Enjoying how you feel in clothes and accessories you love
Leave it: Feeling stuck.
Love it: Feeling the love. (I can help.)
