That’s right, even the day of romance and intimacy should begin with you. After all, if you don’t love up on yourself, who will? And with what is currently going on in the world, our self-adoration and self-care needed more than ever before.
Ready to recharge for your day of self-love? If you can, the best way to go is to book a massage with a top masseuse. You can also enlist a loved one with magic fingers to be your personal massager for the day.
To set your Valentine’s Day on fire, give your tired tootsies and neck a massage yourself with the famous Hitachi Magic Wand Personal Massager. It’s an oldie but goodie that will get your back in line. Then it's good for other things, too. They say that their attachments help you to reach those hard to get personal places. Ahem!

If you’re like many women, we only buy cute undies to impress a dashing lover. Let’s rethink this. Beautiful bras and panties are a tiny way to say to yourself every day when you get dressed, you matter.
We are addicted to beingU, the lingerie brand created by a black woman with our beautiful skin tones - and curvy sizes- in mind. Get your VDay going with the line that ranges from the Buttacup undies that make your booty pop to the gorgeous and delicate Rosa bra. With a wide range of sizes to suit the most voluptuous goddesses and colors from the palest creme to deep double dark chocolate, this truly nude lingerie is a self-love gift we can’t resist.

For much of the day we rule the roost and the office, living the boss life and making things happen. We bring home the vegan bacon, fry it up in a pan, and never let him forget he’s a man. But even queens need to rekindle our feminine energies from time to time, right?
Recharge your self-love with Shane Kulman’s Enchanted Embodiment program, a movement in femininity. If you are an overachiever, perfectionist or find it hard to be in the flow of receiving, then this is for you. In addition to online programs and workshops, they offer one-on-one coaching by Skype or phone to help you get your groove back.

She offers angel readings, psychic and medium readings. Dare to bask in her light -- and find your own.
