Happy Love Day!


One of my instax pics from yesterday.

I know that Valentine's Day can be very commercialised and cheesy but I just embrace it as a day to show even more love than usual. 

I've never hated the day even back in high school when you would see all these girls carrying around their bouquet of flowers and snuggling up with their 'boyfriend.' My friends and I would send each other flowers each year and that always made us feel great (there was a time one of my friends came to my homeroom class to deliver a 'secret admirer ' gift and we thought it was hilarious because I know it was from her. But the people in my class were swooning because of all the 'mystery'). 


My new gallery with hearts. 

And when we travelled back home on the train after school we felt a little smug holding our flowers while the kids from the other schools got on the train (there are many many stories from our train rides home - maybe I will share a few one day). 

So even if you have no significant other, make some heart wands and take fun photos. I guarantee that you will have fun!



My fake polaroid pics. I had fun with my handmade heart wands. 


Do you enjoy the day or hate it??

I love the day only because I'm in love with love, lol. And I love your sparkly heart - too sweet! I saw your reading challenge goal widget, hope you don't mind but I am going to snag it too, so much easier to keep track that way, xo!
