Thoughts on Valentine's Day

I have a lot of feelings right now, so I'm kind of mixed in my opinion about Valentine's Day this year. I, as you may remember, got broken up with last month, so I had originally thought that I would have a significant other to spend Valentine's Day with this year, however I do not... So it's more of a "Single's Awareness Day" for me... But I wanted to take the time to kind of lay out everything that I'm thinking about when it comes to Valentine's Day, because I may not be the only one who thinks/feels this way!

(I want to kind of say starting out that while I'm typing this up I have a really bad glare on my computer regardless of where I sit right now, so please forgive any mistakes that are typing related because I can't read what I'm writing very well)

Alrighty, so I've been trying to work out how I want to spend my Valentine's Day tomorrow, and at the moment I think that I'm going to call both my mom and my grandma to let them know that I love them and that they're doing great with life, and then I'll probably get really comfortable (basically meaning that I'll go full potato and stay on my couch in comfy clothes) and watch as many rom-coms as I can while eating total junk and not feeling bad about it!

That sounds kind of sad, mostly because it's meant to be a day spent being loved and loving on someone else, and candy, and things like that, but I think that an afternoon of alone time after spending the morning in classes is a good way to go.

I think one of the big things people miss out on is showing some love to their family members and friends on Valentine's Day because it's seen as a holiday meant for couples. One of the best things that I received for V Day is a super cute little card that my baby cousins made for me. It's covered in stickers and their super cute handwriting, and it's something that I think I'll keep forever!

So if you're feeling extra aware of your single status, take the day for some self love, or to remind the important people in your life how much they mean to you - Especially if it involved cards and stickers and super cute small children! Haha

To be honest, a pretty horrible part of me wants to fill my ex boyfriend's jacket that I still have with glitter and leave it in his locker at work tomorrow, because then I would no longer have this thing that reminds me of him that I no longer want, and then he'll be stuck finding glitter pretty much everywhere for along time. I kind of feel like her deserves it, but it was said to me that he might be down about being single on V Day... To which I responded that it's his own fault he's single on V Day... Haha Let me know what you think, and/or if you have any opinions about returning gear to an ex significant other.

What are your feelings about Valentine's Day? Let me know how you're planning on spending the day this year! I'll see you on Thursday

An Earring Haul

I'm really excited about this post, however I'm not really sure how to format it! I'm going to just work it out as I go along!

As you know from previous posts, I've been getting a lot more ear piercings this past year, which I've been absolutely loving. One of the only downsides that I've found from having so many ear piercings is that I have a hard time matching all of them in a way that I like with the earrings that I already had beforehand. 

Back in my last post, I talked about a trip that my friend and I took to the nearest big city for a day of hanging out and not really worrying about life! Well while we were there, I stopped into the Icing shop where they were having a sale on earrings and I treated myself to some new pairs that I thought would look really nice with the other piercings that I have. 

I only took photos of the earrings themselves and then how they look on my right ear. I figured including both ears would be a bit too much, but having one gives a much better idea of how they actually look. For the most part I went with really simple earrings that I can wear all the time and not worry about how they look. 

Let me know what you think about them! What are your favorite earrings?
