February echoes all things love. However, I’m going to focus on self love with this guide. Sometimes our days (or weeks are filled with challenges and setbacks. Or we try overcompensate productivity to complete an idealized goal for the validation of feeling accomplished. This goes back to refilling our cup before we start to run on empty. We can’t neglect the most important part of our life: our self.
In my opinion self love is something we should integrate everyday. It doesn’t have to be extravagant nor should you feel like it must be a time consuming or romanticized vision that seems unattainable. The way someone cultivates self love may not be the same as mine or yours and that okay. So whether you decide to take a day in February to buy yourself some chocolates and wine, creating a gratitude list, or having a good cry to feel + release those emotions, remember that it truly does matter.
REAL TALK >> not all my days are ideal. Some days I ignore my alarm clock or wake up straight up grumpy. Some days I am so tired when I get home I cave in to napping and get completely wired at night. No one is perfect so I get to learn from those off days. I think about how I can improve my habits and adapt better patterns. It’s all about goal setting.
Today I’m sharing February’s dreams & goals. When you think of February I am sure most people’s mind lingers toward love, hearts scattered everywhere, and the beautiful shade of crimson red. personally I’m working on inviting a lot of self love and sharing the love this month. I’m looking forward to a chocolate exchange on Galentine’s day, surprising my boyfriend on Valentine’s Day weekend, but also for myself. I want hone in on self love and it’s usually one night I have to destress and recharge. celebrating myself and just giving myself that encouragement and kindness we all need.
The new kid on the block in terms of subscription boxes is Kinder beauty Box. a vegan & cruelty free box filled with beauty + skincare items. The boxes are curated by actresses Evanna Lynch, (who played my favorite Harry potter character) Daniella Monet, and Andrew Bernstein. Advocating a plant based lifestyle and that is reflected in the title. Why not live a kinder life with the products that you use.
This is an honest review of the January Kinder beauty Box box, which is unfortunately sold out, but a peek of what’s to come in their upcoming boxes. A monthly plan starts at $24. Each box will contain 3-4 full-sized products and samples that are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and palm oil-free. The box and contents made from 100% recycled materials and is also biodegradable. A portion of all sales benefits animal rights charities. It’s wonderful that they are choosing products that are palm oil free because elevates the products in terms of social consciousness but also doing the work for you.
Subscription boxes can be that glimmer of curiosity and joy when you come home. But whose to say it can’t be the same for your pup?
Dapper Dog Box

Mimi is my shih-tzu pup. She’s quite particular about treats and toys, she is quite insistent on cuddling up and joining you wherever you sit. She’s the spark in my life and I love to spoil her with treats whenever I can
