V-Day Your Way

Updated: Jan 30


Valentine's Day, loved and anxiously awaited by many and dreaded by some. A holiday grounded in love and its celebration —in ways that are often cheesy, heartfelt, romantic and in some instances lustful and even pulse-racing. Let's tread beyond the obvious flowers and chocolates, and dabble in a more sensual realm of pleasurable gift-giving. Don't worry, flowers and chocolate are also included here. But we'll start off with eyewear —a stranger to no one. Whatever you decide, find a way to indulge in the day, whether it's you alone or with your special someone.
