“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”
― Audrey Hepburn
In honor of valentine’s day, the theme of this post is: LOVE!
However, maybe it isn’t the kind of love that you are thinking about on this day-and maybe you never even think about it at all! Well now you will- this Valentine’s Day is about self-love!
While looking through fashion websites, I was very happy to find quite a few blogs that not only focused on fashion, but using fashion as a form of personal expression and honoring yourself-which I think is exactly what it is, and should always be!
Here are my favorites.
gala and glitter
My absolute FAVORITE blogger in the entire blog-o-sphere is Gala Darling, from galadarling.com. She is a vibrant, intelligent and artistic blogger who is starting a self-love movement to encourage women to embrace their true selves. So inspiring! To say that I adore her would be a vast understatement. I’ve been following her blog for years, and she always has a multitude of new and wonderful things to say- and an incredibly gorgeous closet of wild and fabulous style!
everyday gala- fun and fabulous!
Her never-ending zest for life is so inspiring! The pink hair, the glitter, the mickey mouse ears can’t help but make you smile. You must visit her site, it is just so lovely!
This is the description of her provided on her website:
“Gala believes in pink lingerie, sequins, stardust & candy-coloured Cadillacs. She believes in making mischief & the triumph of magic over the brute. She believes in short skirts & lip gloss & bringing about the radical self love revolution. She believes life doesn’t have to be serious, that you create your own reality & that beauty is all around us.”
Another very inspiring lady that I have had the pleasure of discovering in my much more recent blog-o-travels is the lovely Amber Johnstone of thesofisticate.blogspot.com. Her posts are also centered around the combining of fashion and self-love, and are so lovely and happy and upbeat that’s it is always an absolute joy visiting her site! (I just checked back at her blog again, and saw that she is ordering a pair of hot pink patent doc martens! I like her even more now!) haha.
isn’t she so cute?
The first week I started blogging I was a bit nervous, and asked her a little about my site, and she was very sweet and genuine and responded to my questions right away! I appreciate that so much in people. What a darling.
She also posts a lot of DIY projects which are always fun to see (maybe I will actually do one someday too! haha), and recipes as well!
So, Happy Valentine’s Day to…YOU!
I will leave you with a couple of more sweet-as-candy quotes. have a lovely day!
“Always be a first rate version of yourself and not a second rate version of someone else.”
― Judy Garland
“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.”
Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
