When we think of February we think of the month of love! St Valentine's Day, the day where we celebrate love and traditionally send a card to our secret love. For me love, begins with the self. Learning to love, respect and appreciate yourself is probably the best gift you could give yourself this valentines day. For me love isn't just about the love between a couple in a relationship, it is about loving and appreciating those around us, those who matter to us, those who make a difference to our lives. This month at the beauty barn we want to celebrate all types of love, in all types of relationships. Keep checking our facebook page for more ways we are celebrating love month this February.
