Isn’t It Romantic?: Valentine's Day Picks to LOVE

It’s that time of year again, when love is in the air and everywhere you look, you see images of love. Some days, it almost makes you want to throw things at your television, right? I’m going to make a confession here. It took me a while to come to love and accept my body, and some days I still don’t like it.  I know that’s okay, because I also know that no matter what size I am, or how I feel that I look, every woman has something they wish they could change. In fact, did you know that more women would choose a million dollars over having Giselle’s body?  I’ve learned as I have gotten older (and maybe a little wiser) that the best love you can have is for yourself.   

Love your amazing smile? Share it with the world.  Have a sexy brain that rocks at Trivia Crack? Take it on dates to the library, museums or a great speaker series to give it more. Learning to embrace the hips that carried and bore my two amazing sons has been an amazing exercise in learning to self-love. I know I will never be a size 2, but I am a size happy and healthy, and that is what matters the most.

Once you have learned to love the amazing, wonderful and miraculous body that you have been given, there’s nothing more amazing than enhancing and celebrating it with clothes that make you look and feel amazing.  An amazing dress that flatters and fits and just makes you feel like the vixen goddess you that you are! Thank you, Kiyonna!

Craving soft and romantic pieces for those times you are feeling more Jane Eyre than Hester Prynne? I am in LOVE with DKNY apparel’s soft blush hues for spring.  Wear a uniform every day but still want to feel a little fierce under it all? Hanky Panky has you covered. Rock your wardrobe and body comfortably, love yourself, and you just might be inspired to do something special or unexpected for YOU! And that, my friends, is the true definition of romance!

Fresh Picks: Leopard Prints

Although leopard print was once dismissed as just a fall trend, we’re happy to see that this classically cool and edgy print is becoming a beloved year-round staple, particularly in spring and summer. The trick to wearing leopard prints is to keep it subtle to avoid looking dated and over the top.

Introducing a leopard print piece into an outfit instantly adds a slightly off-beat and visually interesting focal point.

Check out some of our favorite leopard print piece (clockwise):

Yarnz Leopard Hearts: A scarf is an easy way to add this wild print to an otherwise simple outfit.

MICHAEL Michael Kors leopard belt: Cinch in a tunic or dress with this cool belt.

GUESS leopard print watch: If you want just a hint of leopard, this sparkly watch is the way to go!

Sam Edelman Lucia: This sexy sandal is made even more alluring with a nice dose of leopard.

LAUREN by Ralph Lauren Zanzibar Leopard Tote: Despite its wild print, this classy tote is a wearable neutral that goes with just about anything.
