Valentine’s wishes

Another year, another made up holiday – Hello, that is the cynic talking. If you’d met me a year ago that would’ve been the kind of girl I was, just a firm believer in the nonsense of love and Valentine’s. However, since last year I’ve gotten some perspective on this holiday of romance.


  1. I am now a firm believer that there are multiple loves to celebrate! Whether that’s a significant other, your best friends, or your family – Celebrate the love!
  2. If nothing else, love yourself! Buy yourself that perfume you’ve been ogling, a new lipstick or some underwear just to boost your own self-esteem. After all, there’s nothing better than self-love.
  3. Stop with the cynicism. I know, it’s easy to call Valentine’s out for what it is: A splurge, made-up holiday to boost the big guy’s wallet. It’s also, at its core, all about celebrating the love you have around you, so stop moping and enjoy it!


Below you’ll find some things that are currently on my Valentine’s wish list. Hopefully, it’ll inspire you to really go full throttle on the self-love train.

Hey! It's me, the journalist wannabe who're most often fondly referred to as "adrokable". If you were wondering I'm currently in my last year of a journalism degree at Stockholm University and work part time for the Swedish fashion magazine Damernas Värld.
