I was talking to a mentor recently, and stated that I wasn't celebrating Valentines Day this year. He responded by saying: Why not? You should love on yourself everyday. I totally agree, as much as I feel like the holiday is over rated, it's also a great opportunity to show people you love them. We should spread love all year around, so why not on Valentines. Day? Here are some of my favorite ways to love on myself.
I've been going to Merry Nails since I moved to LA, their very reasonably priced and have great customer service.

Me of course lol, just kidding, but not really. There are lots of great stylist in LA. I will list some Instagram handles here.

Brows and Skincare
I'm a firm believer that and eyebrow can make or break you, which is why I go to an eyebrow specialist that understands my face shape and won't have me looking crazy. Anthony is amazing and extremely professional. Follow him on Instagram @anthonyandrewbhbrows.
*There's also another young lady I follow @brittbrow.
Along with having a good brow, it's important to take care of your skin. Aisha has been doing my facials for about a year now, when I first started going to her my skin was clear on the surface, but underneath I had a lot going on lol. Almost a year later I see a huge difference in my skin. It's brighter, clearer, and feels a lot healthier. Follow her @smilesandsprinklesskincare.
Laser Hair Removal
I was introduced to ProLase by my friend Naz, she'd been going for a while and loves this place. At first I was a little skeptical about getting laser hair removal just off the strength that it sounded scary, but after I went last year I'm all the way here for it. It's a lot less painful than waxing and much faster. One of the reasons I like ProLase in particular is their professionalism and pricing. Check them out at www.prolaseclinic.com
I'm not always able to do these regimes all at once, but I try to do at least one a month. I think it's so important to do things that make you feel good about yourself. So if you don't have a Valentine this year I encourage you to love on yourself, hey do it even if you do. I hope you all have an amazing Valentines Day! Ciao!
