Last night, I had dinner with a good friend of mine and somehow we ended up discussing V-day (I can’t even pronounce the whole thing) and he adviced me to write about it, mainly because I have a different point of view about this holiday/ event/ whatever this is. So, here we go. I don’t hate Valentine’s Day, really, but I am truly convinced that this should be a way to celebrate, in the most egoisthic way, YOU. Why? Because there should be no one in this entire world whose love for you is greater or should be greater than yours. We should celebrate true love and obviously, the most sincere form of love is the one we have for ourselves. I am sorrounded by so many couples that are bonded by anything but love and that’s just sad. That’s why you should make it about you.
It’s been a while since I’ve celebrated it in this egoisthic, self-concerned manner. I always buy myself either a new fragrance, either expensive lingerie. Well, this year I went for something bigger, PARIS! Today I bought the tickets as a V-day gift, but I’m going in April, because, hopefully, the weather will be nicer. So, it’ll be me and Paris for 5 days!
It will be my second time in Paris, but this time I plan to make a more elaborate visiting tour. The first time, I wasn’t prepared and, let’s just say, I wasn’t mature enough to appreciate it.
*Pick the first week of the month (every month!), because on Sundays you get free pass at almost all the museums.
*If you are under 26, you get free entrance at Louvre, every Friday night from 6 P.M. to 9:45 P.M.
To keep the tradition alive, I’ll show you my picks:
A floral bra from H&M. You can find it in here.
And my new fav perfume, Opium by YSL. Floral lingerie and Opium, because I love contradictions. You can find it in here.
Brigitte Bardot’s song and this Miss Dior Cherie commercial always puts me in the mood for Paris.
