Happy Valentine’s Day to me!

Do you remember your first Valentine’s Day? You were probably handed a scruffy card with bent corners and a lopsided heart drawn on the front. Butterflies flit around your belly button and you think: I’m in love – this is the person I am going to marry!

But then you see them on the playground, try to say thank you with a kiss but get pushed away and called a ‘poopy head’. Suddenly something that seemed perfect has now become the most painful thing you have ever dealt with.

Welcome to love.

It’s 20 years later and nothing has changed, men are still confessing their undying love and then running in the opposite direction. It’s sad really, because they don’t realise what a gem you really are.

So, this year, instead of waiting for someone to fork out the cash and buy you shiny things, ask yourself: ‘What would Beyoncé do?’

That’s right, Queen Bey would flip her hair, put on her sassiest outfit and forget all about the haters. Our advice this time is follow her lead and be your own Valentine!

We’ve even made it super easy with a list of our top Valentine picks that you can get to spoil yourself. Here is a breakdown of our favourite me·mi jewels for you to choose from.
