This giveaway features a few favorite small things, handpicked by me for you. Because I like you and I think you’re nice. I wanted to spread a little love and brightness in the gloom of winter (because it will be winter until March or April, let’s be honest). I get that Valentine’s Day can feel overly saccharine, but it’s actually a great day to say to yourself, in case you’ve been forgetting, “Hey. I love you.” Nice and simple. Don’t waste your energy on negativity towards a retail-oriented holiday. Instead, treat yourself and move on, powered by chocolate, to bigger things. That’s the best. That’s where your energy belongs. Chocolate. Valentine's Day Giveaway

All you have to do to enter is use the Rafflecopter entry form, and leave a comment below. How do you treat yourself? Additional entries can be earned by tweeting or by sharing this post to your Facebook page.

  1. Burt’s Bees lemon cuticle cream to heal (all natural, cruelty-free, free of sulfates and parabens)
  2. Pacifica Color Quench vanilla hibiscus lip tint for a dash of color (100% vegan, free of parabens)
  3. Katie Daisy “love” notebook for secrets or not-so-secrets
  4. tumbled amethyst and rose quartz for the heart and spirit

I know I have been away from this space, but I am finally finally over this treacherous cold! Joy. I had intended to share this post with you all on Monday, but I spent my entire day home from work, under the covers with echinacea tea, Bearna and Netflix. It was not even remotely charming. It was snotty. This was, of course, after spending five days trying to pretend I was okay. I can be an idiot. I don’t always take very good care of myself, and I am an awful sick person. I would like to start doing …better.

Last year for Valentine’s Day, Timothy surprised me with beautiful smokey quartz necklace and earring set. I wear them often, but I find myself particularly drawn to them when I am anxious and in need of comfort. Much of that comes from these stones being a gift from the person who is the most grounding presence in my life, but I think they hold a bit of that energy, themselves.
