The term “self-love” is cropping up in stories like weeds, but what does this really mean? Self-love is having an appreciation for oneself. It means giving yourself what your body, brain, and spirit need for living a good life. It’s all about nourishing yourself but self-love isn’t the same as being selfish. Selfishness is not caring about people’s feelings or needs. So self-love is really a positive thing! Here 5 easy ways to give yourself a gift of self-love:

Light Up Your Life:
It’s challenging for most people to travel afar, let alone nearby. But Fernweh has a set of 3 candles in their “Cascadia Collection” and each smells like somewhere you would love to be. The travel-inspired collection of a set of 3 11 oz. hand-poured soy wax candles ($95) make a classic gift. The three 6 oz. set of travel tin candles in the same scents ($40) makes a nice gift for yourself Fernweh means “wanderlust” in German. You can also get each votive separately.
Ours out of the Pacific Northwest trio shown above was the Blackberry & Bay with the scene of juicy blackberries and soft, sensual bay and woods. The other are Ferns & Petals (green/earthy) and Pine & Fir Balsam spiced with cardamom and pepper. gender-neutral scents. They’re all beautiful boxed with striking black glass votives and white and black labels that are gender-neutral to suit anyone and every decor. There are more beautiful and enticing scents.

Treat Yourself to Truffles (Skincare):
Truffles are a treat to eat, but they can also do great things for your skin. For example, the Truffoire White Truffle Day Moisturizer. The made-in-the-USA dermatologist-tested product is packaged in a very elegant pearl and silver jar with an interior lid. It has white truffle extract to help deal with the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Although some say it’s a miracle, no cream that I know of can dissolve deeply enough into your skin to turn back the clock entirely. However, there are proven ingredients to help skin look its’ best in this moisturizer.
Luxury Isn’t Cheap:
All of the Truffoire products are super-luxe and pricey. At $300 per 1.7 oz. jar, it had better do a whole lot more than just look pretty. The ingredients include Vitamin A and E, Green Tea Extract, Shea Butter, Organic Safflower Oil, and of course, White Truffle Extract.
As with everything I review, I do try it. I felt a tightening almost immediately. As someone with sensitive skin, I am happy to report that the Truffoire White Truffle Day Cream didn’t irritate my skin at all. It just made it feel super soft (it can provide 24-hour moisturization). What else does this cream purport to do? It diminishes fine lines and promotes skin elasticity. Protects skin from harmful environmental elements. Relieves irritations and calms sensitive skin. Soothes dry skin and provides a glow. It also strengthens the skin’s natural barrier and they say it also promotes cell renewal. Well, that’s a tall order, but it’s a darn nice treat to use.

Have a Bubble Blast (and Clean Your Hands):
We all know that clean hands are not just for kids. However, I’ll bet there are some in your family (kids or adults) that ignore this rule. Splatz looks like big round bubbles in a jar but those “bubbles” are soap. Fish one out with the little plastic hand and swish the soap into your hands–fun!
The soap is all-natural, cruelty-free, and with biodegradable ingredients, and shipped in sustainable packaging. If someone in your family just “forgets” to watch their hands, this might help them do a better job. Also the little plastic hand that helps you fish out the soap balls doubles as a bubble wand. How fun is that!!!? And it’s also good to know that 5% of profits are donated to YourMomCares, a nonprofit that addresses kids’ mental health challenges.

Give Yourself Self Love, Literally:
Well, they’re dancin’ this bird in the east & the west. Make this dance & you’ll look the best. Haven’t you heard about the bird? Don’t you know that the bird’s the word?
From the “Bird’s the Word” by the Rivingtons (The Rivingtons were a doo-wop group noted for being one of the loudest and raucous of the genre),
However, in this story I am referring to a new and unique adult pleasure object for women (or for couple play) from Norway called the “Biird.” It looks like a yellow bird in a clear cage which is a charging base. Also, the base lights up so you can legitimately keep it on your nightstand, The device is made of body-safe silicone (also in blue or pink) ready to bring you tons of pleasure.
In fact, the soft and squishy little Biird is a red dot design award winner. Another plus is that it is really quiet with both suction and vibration modes to make your body “sing.” You get 2 1/2 hours worth of pleasure on a 2-hour charge. When you have exhausted the charge (or yourself) the base features wireless charging. It’s got two easy-to-use buttons and a variety of suction intensities and vibration modes. It can be washed under the tap and used in the shower, but don’t “drown” your Biird underwater.
If it sounds like I’m being a bit delicate with my wording in this review, it’s simply to appease Google (sad that I have to do it this way, but true). But adults will get the idea. Nice to know that for every Biird purchased, a tree is planted. If you want to learn more Visit the Biird Website
