Valentine’s Day is a church sanctioned holiday deemed February 14 since 498 A.D. The exact origins of the celebration are somewhat unclear. It is still uncertain exactly who the celebrated saint of love really was.
According to one legend, Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” greeting himself. While in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girl * who may have been his jailor’s daughter * who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, which he signed “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still in use today.
However celebrated, I recommend breakfast in bed. A simple gesture that instantly makes one feel spoiled and loved.
This adorable romper by Free People will keep you cozy and in the mood to be pampered. The material is thin enough to layer and comfortable enough to want to wear all day. So if you do decide to get out of bed (not recommended), throw on some jeans and you are ready to go.
❤Happy Valentine’s Day!❤
‣ Texturizing Spray
‣ 1’in – 1.5’in Curling Rod or Iron
‣ Velcro Rollers or Duckbill Pins
‣ Hair Spray
‣ Shine Serum/Spray
⇢ Start with day-old hair. (Curl will hold better)
⇢ Apply Texturizing Spray from root to end. (By using this rather than a hair spray, will ensure that sexy tousled look.)
⇢ Using the curling rod, start about 3 inches down from the root and wrap 1 inch sections around the wand. Stop curling about one inch from the bottom of the hair, this will create a more natural wave.
⇢ Alternate the direction of the curl, front to back. (TIP: The bigger the section, the looser the wave. Haphazardly take smaller sections and bigger sections all over the head.)
⇢ Set each curl by wrapping the hair around a velcro roller – or – wrap the curl around two fingers and pin to head.
⇢ Let curls set for 10 minutes or until cool.
⇢ Carefully release roller or pin and apply hair spray.
⇢ Flip hair upside-down and run fingers through the hair, gently breaking up each curl. (If curls are tighter than preferred, the more you mess with them – the more they will drop.)
⇢ Add shine serum/spray.
