Sure, sometimes it’s fun when other people shower you with Valentine’s Day gifts, but that doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself to a little splurge. No matter if you’re dating or completely single this holiday, it’s the perfect time to show yourself some love.
Martina Jackson, photographer, blogger, and owner of Drea & Co.:
“Okay, whether I am spending a romantic Valentine’s evening with my love or having a good ol’ galentines with the ladies, I have to TREAT MYSELF with some immaculate vibes and fragrance before I head out the door. 1983candleco does that for me with their ‘Love Potion’ room mist, and oh my goodness, the scent is amazing. Locally owned and crafted—they need to be on your list.”
