    What a lovely write! I believe this day would have been a lot better if it were actually centred on love alone and wasn’t just another commercialised day. Happy Valentine’s Day!! I think I’m going to spend the day with books and music😂

      Thanks hun! Your plan for today is very similar to mine. I’m just typing away and playing with my toddler lol.
      Happy Valentine’s Day to you too <3

    I agree with your all points Shelly! This day could be much better 💕 I’m gonna love myself and my family and friends as much as I can today, it would be not very easy from tomorrow as my school has started as regular finally ✨✨

    So true, this day should be about love and celebrating all types of love – friendship, family, yourself and romance. It’s such a shame that it’s become a money spinning, commercialised day <3

    Awwwwww happy Valentines Day. ❤️❤️🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾
    Tbh I’m not doing much today, just the normal mundane things. Trying to catch up on typing up blogs on my page. As I was not consistent recently. So today type up blog posts, go for a walk, later wash my hair. Binge watch my favourite tv show tonight. Treat for myself yesterday I ordered myself a 2 litre water bottle, because I will be doing the water challenge in March with my natural hair Facebook group. It will be a challenge indeed.
    I am single, but not in a rush to find someone right now, and not a big fan of online dating.

    Aww, this is such a feel good post!!! Being single this time, it did make me a little sad to see all the cheesy posts on IG. But I spent time with a really close friend and her hubby last night – and being silly with them totally made me forget that it’s valentine’s day. I got home to Valentine’s gifts from my friends – made me feel so loved. So yeah – it’s just a day of love not just romantic love. 😊
    Happy Valentine’s Day, girl! 🤗❤️

    That was a very positive and uplifting way to start my day Shelly. I agree that we should celebrate all kinds of love today and everyday. My daughter gave me a hand-made card this morning. She may be almost 18 but I always look forward to those creations.

    You are so right..Love does conquer it all! 💕 you made some good points. Showing love and appreciation to one another is sincere and comes from within. Love is love❤

    Happy Valentine’s Day

    This was a beautiful post. You are right about everything. Although I spent every 14 feb as a normal day but one thing I can say that Valentine’s Day can be celebrated with families, friends, yourself and even Pets too.
    Im feeling so good after reading this.

    Not too late to wish you a happy valentine!

    I slept all through the day 😅, that was my self-care/self-love treatment.

    BTW, it’s been a while I explored your blog. I’ve got a lot of catching up to do, man!

    I think we often forget the real and true meaning behind days like Valentines day and thats to show love. Who says its just for romantic partners? It should be showing love for all that we are grateful for in our lives!

    • Shelly DS says

      Exactly! At no point during the day did I feel less loved and yet my husband and I barely spent any time together and didn’t exchange gifts. I don’t know who made it about expensive gifts for couples but they probably capitalized on that!

      • Olivia says

        Its all very commercialised. Its like society says you must do these big gestures otherwise you don’t love me. When its the small things that people do for others that show love 💕

  11. Josephine Nerissa Leão Panzo says

    There’s nothing better than spreading love! It’s sad to think that sometimes we get too carried with life that we forget to breath, take care of ourselves and check up on others.

    This is a wonderful post!! Love does conquer all. It conquers all the hate in the world!! Great points Shelly ✨✨

I'd love to read your thoughts on this!
