Who says love month can’t be about you treating yourself? Every once in awhile we need to take time for ourselves and splurge on things we wouldn’t necessarily get for ourselves. Whether it’s a spa day or just a day you cut your phone off and read, self-care is necessary so we can be on our best for everyone else.
This month take some time for yourself. Say no, put your phone on “do not disturb” mode, buy that Fenty foundation you’ve been dying for, read that book — just do something that fills you up this month.
