Romance and Radical Self Love, Part 1

(Painting by Tamara de Lempicka)

I'm dedicating the entire month to it, how about you?

A few of the ways I plan to woo myself and the lucky lads and lasses that cross my path:

3 beautiful long stemmed lavender roses for my writing desk. I may even add some tulips tomorrow and some freshly picked wisteria from outside.

Sipping fancy teas and homemade hot toddies with my finest whiskey and clove studded meyer lemons.

Reading poetry by Edna St. Vincent Millay and Percy Bysshe Shelley.

Baking cookies from scratch in nothing but my finest lingerie and high heels. And a cute apron ;)

Wearing perfume every day and lots of red lipstick.

Writing love letters to myself and my girlfriends.

Planning a midweek day off for a massage, gingerbread pancakes, a manicure with some blood red nailpolish and some crystal hearts.

Writing a self love manifesto along with Gala Darling and her gang.

Taking late night walks with my dog Paisley.

I'm feeling giddy just thinking about it . . .
