Whether you have Valentine’s Day plans with others or are happily going it alone, self care is always essential. We’ve compiled some suggestions for you to treat yourself, unwind and take a little ‘me time’ over the coming weeks!

Connect with others, learn self-development techniques such as journalling, manifesting and meditation. You can also receive daily positive affirmations to help you carry positivity with you throughout your day. @theheadplan

The Belle Silk Pillowcase

The perfect way to treat your hair is to sleep on a luxurious Mulberry Silk pillowcase. Thanks to silk’s buttery smooth texture your hair won’t get tangled or matted as you sleep. Silk also doesn’t dry out your hair like traditional cotton pillowcases, leaving your hair hydrated, frizz free and silky smooth. Say goodbye to bed head and good morning to soft, beautiful hair with The Silk Pillowcase from The Belle Brush. @thebellebrush
