Valentines Day, also know as Saint Valentines Day is celebrated every year on February 14th. Typically thought of as a "hallmark holiday" this day is often considered something conjured up by businesses to entice people to spend money on chocolates, cards, and flowers. Truth be told, this day traces back to a historical figure that was a patron saint. The history of Saint Valentine is still a mystery but it us said to date back to 496 AD. The holiday first became associated with romantic love in the middle ages when the tradition of courtly love was flourishing. This tradition has held up through the years and has now taken many forms of celebration with our loved ones. In the spirit of the holiday, I have chosen some beauty ideas for this day of amour.
