As hard as this past year has been, there seems to not be many reasons to celebrate things. Valentine’s Day is upon us and though you may or may not have a lover to shower gifts on, you should definitely be treating yourself. Valentine’s Day is either loathed or loved, I’ve found that there is no in between with most people. Whether I’ve had a significant other or not, I always make a point to celebrate just for me every year.
Pretty Little Things
As a treat to myself this year, I purchased some beautiful lingerie. All of the pieces are from Black woman owned companies that have stylish pieces for curvy women. Honestly, I haven’t worn actual lingerie in years. I wanted something that was super sexy, wearable and flattering. Normally, I like things like a babydoll set or a matching camisole and panty set. However, I stepped out of my comfort zone and purchased a very nice teddy and a sexy low cut slip. When I tell you that low cut plunging teddy is the sexiest thing ever? Whew! I purchased this from Love Vera, the shipping was fast and efficient and the sizing ( I got a 2x) was on point.

Let’s discuss this beautiful slip I purchased from Savage X Fenty next. As I searched the Savage website, I saw a few sets that had a garter and robe. I didn’t want a set, so I opted for something sexy, yet simple and that I’d feel comfortable in with or without a robe. The criss-cross straps and low cut back really sold me on this little number. The way it plunges really accentuated my waist and the bottom flowed out just enough. This slip is short, coming right to the top of my thighs, so I paired it with a pair of lace panties that I already had. Sexy, elegant, free, it gives me all of the things.

All About You
Of all the things you could do on Valentine’s Day, I’d encourage you to do something special just for you. Whether it’s a long luxurious bath, a bottle of champagne all to yourself or Netflix and chilling. Make the day about you and your happiness. Here’s the thing, feeling and looking sexy doesn’t only need to happen on this one day of the year. Wear the lingerie, drink the expensive wine, use the good sheets just because you can. If the never ending pandemic has taught me anything, it’s that the time is now. Wear whatever, do whatever and feel good about it. I hope whoever is reading this has a great Valentine’s Day and makes it special, whether you’re boo’d up or single. Love up extra hard on you.
