A SHORT FILM
Valentine’s Day is approaching so I’ve decided to present a full “Get Ready With Me” short film taking your through my makeup, hair, and outfit for this special occasion. The makeup features soft pinks and the hair is a 4 c natural hair updo with clip in extensions. I don’t typically do makeup tutorials, but I thought it would be fun and interesting to do it in a way that told a story and revealed a little bit about myself. I hope my storytelling resonates with you and that you can take my ideas into a wonderful Valentine’s Day.

NO MATTER WHAT, TREAT YOURSELF
Valentine’s Day is marketed for couples, but I think it can simply be a day of expression of love. Single? hang out with your friends or give yourself a full day of pampering. You should definitely buy yourself some chocolate and flowers. Who says you need someone else to feel special? Celebrate the love of those in your life right now. Celebrate Self Love!
