It’s that time of year again!
It’s time to celebrate with the one you love, and show them how special they are to you in your life.
OR it’s the one day of the year where all you see is red hearts that guilt trip you into spend ridiculous amounts of money on little trinkets that’ll be eaten/put on a shelf/inevitably thrown away. All for the attention of strangers so you can prove that you are the best girlfriend/boyfriend ever and way better than those that don’t spend ALL THE MONEY!
For a good majority of us, it’s a good night out with the girls/night in with the cats and thinking about all the discounted chocolate that you’re going to buy the next day.
