Beauty and Lace are giving away Pilot Pens and other Valentine's Day goodies all month long in their 'Month of Love Giveaway'. Enter today for your chance to win!
Struggling to pen the perfect love letter to your Valentine? Dating and Relationship expert, John Aiken, recommends the following: • Be You – your partner loves you for who you are so just be yourself and explain your feelings in your own words. You don’t need to be the next Shakespeare in the making. • Be Raw – don’t be afraid to open up your inner most feelings – that’s what writing a love letter is all about. Your loved one will appreciate your honesty and openness. • Take your Time - in this day and age of social media, texting and email, we tend to run on auto-pilot. Get in touch with yourself and with your feelings to help express yourself in an authentic, meaningful way. • Plot it out – if you run out of steam after the first paragraph, then look back to the past and how you met, comment about the present and anticipate the joys of the future. • Presentation – express your style. A love letter can be anything you want it to be – scribbled on the back of an envelope, crafted on parchment with a beautiful ink pen, or just a few sentences on scrap paper. And if you’re worried about making a mistake – choose an erasable ink pen so you can start again.
