Be My Valentine

Here’s the very first preview of Manhattan Girl’s 2016 Valentine’s Day Lookbook. The lookbook is full of great inspiration and gift ideas for V-Day, and if you don’t know what to write in your Valentine-card this year, adding a beautiful poem is always a great idea (It’s totally allowed to be clichΓ© on this day).

One of my personal favorite Valentine’s Day poems can be found in the collection of English nursery rhymes Gammer Gurton’s Garland (1784):

The rose is red, the violet’s blue, The honey’s sweet, and so are you. Thou art my love and I am thine; I drew thee to my Valentine: The lot was cast and then I drew, And Fortune said it shou’d be you.

xoxo Charlotte

    Hi Charlotte I have been commenting on your blog before, Iasked for advice regarding starting a blog, you might remember me as Alva but Ijust changed my name to ChloΓ© but anyways, now to my question. My fiancΓ© just broke up with me … We had been together for 7 years and I have been really broken down now for weeks, even though I have finally realized that I deserve better (he was mean to me emotionally, and psychologically) Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it’s for the first time in 7 years that I will be “alone” on Valentine’s Day. The thing is I am living with the family I nanny for but they are going on vacation on Friday and my best friend here in the US is married, my other best friend has a boyfriend and my other friend that I’m hanging out with is also going away for the week so I’m gonna be home all alone and I am just worried that Imgonna break down completely … Since we broke up it has helped to go out and be among people but This day I just can’t cause I just feel that Im only gonna see people in love every where and I can’t take that right now … It might sound dramatic and pathetic but I’m just a very romantic and emotionally person.. Do you have any advice what I can do that day ? Cause I don’t want to sleep away the day if you know what I mean. Thank you for your advice, love your blog.

      Hi ChloΓ©! Apologizes for my late response!
      I’m sorry to hear about your breakup! Valentine-s Day is definitely not a fun day when you feel emotional and sad. I’m very proud of you though – you already say you deserve better, which to me shows confidence and great courage!
      I’m not sure how you ended up spending your Valentine’s Day, but I would focus a lot on being active the next weeks. I know how hard it can be to be far away from home (I had many hard and lonely days in New York the first two years after I moved there), but try to go outside, find activities you like and make new friends! If you need a break from your current friends (they will understand), befriending someone new can be a great thing! Since they don’t know your past and current situation, they don’t judge and confront you, and it might be easier for you to open up.
      Try to not over-analyze too much, and give yourself time to heal! Stay away from Facebook, and don’t think negative thoughts about yourself or blame yourself for anything! I’m sure that something much more amazing than him is waiting for you around the next corner! Big hug <3
