Send Love: All The Feels For February’s Theme


Get the bubble bath going, order a heart-shaped pizza just because, and hop on the self-love train because we’re going full steam ahead into the season of l’amour. The beautiful thing about ~love~ is that it can come in a million different shades, but the formula remains the same: An emotional bond to someone or something. So this month, we’re inviting you to foster those relationships (to friends and fam, to a total stranger, to yourself!) by sending a little love. Maybe it’s leaving a sweet sticky note for your S.O. or complimenting your barista’s mani—when it comes from the heart, there’s no wrong way to say it.

And because love and beauty go hand in hand, we’ve got a lineup of must-reads to scroll through while you enjoy that much-deserved bubble bath.
