Valentine’s Day is a day of romance, and appreciation for your loved ones. Lovers spend time together, get gifts for each other, go on dates; its very nice, unless you are single of course. Being single on V-day could be excruciating, but it doesn’t have to be. I’ve come up with a list of things of things to do on V-day if you are single.
Perhaps your life is in a transition state and all you need is a day to think about what you want out of your career, the kind of person you want to be, or some of your short and long term goals.
Round up some single friends and go watch something awesome. Don’t forget to bring a bucket of your favorite popcorn.
Spend time with those you already love. Children make the best valentines. Bring them somewhere they love and let them feast on candy. Their happiness will spread on to you.
Hey! You never know when you’re going to find that special someone. Don’t forget to accessorize with your favorite Ashley Bridget collection.
This is a great day to volunteer. Visit your local animal shelter, soup kitchen for the homeless, centers for senior citizens, etc. Whatever you choose, you are bound to feel great about yourself knowing you made a difference.
If you have culinary skills have some single friends over and enjoy a nice home made meal. If you are not a great chef, convince a single friend who is and have them cook for the bunch.
It’s a great day to spend at the spa getting a massage, manicure and pedicure. You’ll come out brand spanking new.
Celebrated February 13-15th, Lupercalia was a Pagan festival that St. Valentine’s day is derived from. Originally Lupercalia was a fertility festival that honored Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture. By the end of the 5th century Lupercalia was banned and deemed un-Christian, so Pope Gelasius the first declared February 14th St. Valentine’s day in order to Christianize the festivities that were continuing; however, it was not until later that the date was associated with love and romance.
Valentine’s Day arrived to the US in the 19th century. In 1847 Esther Howland produced the first mass-produced V-day card and by the second half of the 20th century the practice of giving gifts along with cards became popular.
Here’s a list of my favorite gifts
A girl loves candy! Go ahead and and indulge. This is a day where you’re allowed to eat everything in sight.
Okay, maybe you aren’t an artist; however, sometimes it feels great when someone takes the time to make something for you.
I’m not exactly sure why we love flowers. Maybe it’s because they make us travel in time to the moment we received them, or simply because we deserve them. Who cares!

Faux is no longer a faux-pas in fashion. At Ashley Bridget we are proud to say that we use vegan leathers in all of our accessories. Leather is always a huge trend for the season, so we’re happy to provide you with some alternatives for fall.
Anything with a leather trim instantly gives an edge to an otherwise simple piece. A pair of faux-leather pants or leggings dresses up an outfit, and keeps you warm as the weather cools down. No outfit is complete without accessories. Add a leather backpack, shoes or a bow as a cute accent piece. Lastly, make a statement with a beautiful piece of jewellery. The Ashley Bridget Baggins bracelet combines silver accents with faux-leather pieces. A great way to go faux this fall!

One of the hardest things to do in life is to step outside of your comfort zone, and take a chance. It’s definitely easier to be set in your ways, and do only what makes you comfortable. But life experiences are what shape you as you continue to learn and grow as a person. New experiences can inspire you to take paths that you never imagined, opening you up to a whole new world of possibilities. If you never take a chance, you can never get to somewhere new.
We aren't necessarily talking about life-threatening risks that require you to sign some kind of liability waiver before-hand, but the small everyday risks that you avoid taking. Like introducing yourself to someone new, trying a new food, or interviewing for a job that you convinced yourself you couldn't get. Doing anything that scares you is taking a risk.
Big risks are also important for making real progress and being fulfilled. Following a seemingly impossible dream takes a lot of courage, and starting over to do it takes even more. But whether you get there or not, you will be glad that you put everything that you had into trying. That in itself is worth it.
Of course you can get by in life just fine without ever taking a chance, but that’s how you get the best stories!

Summer is finally here, and Mother Nature has actually started to give us some beautiful weather that feels like it. That means it’s beach season! Whether you are lounging at your local beach or pool, or soaking up the sun in the Caribbean, we have what you need to look great wherever you are.
First off, you need an amazing swimsuit. A retro silhouette is a fun trend for swimsuits this summer. A high waisted two-piece is a great way to go. It provides the coverage of a one-piece with the appeal of a bikini, and a bright print is flattering on everyone.
2. Sun Hat
A floppy sun hat is both a functional and fashionable accessory. It keeps the sun out of your eyes, protects your head, and is an easy way to look effortlessly stylish.
In between dips you might want something to cover up with. If you don’t have a cover-up on hand, you can use a large printed scarf and wrap it around your waist or throw it around your shoulders.
You need shoes that are easy to slip on and off. If you’re a girl that loves to be in heels, wedges are an easy substitute. If you’re a little more practical, a cute pair of flip-flops will get you around.
Sunglasses are of course a must-have summer fashion accessory.
6. Statement Jewelry
Having a few simple jewelry pieces can really pull an outfit together, even if you’re at the beach. A turquoise necklace is a perfect summer accessory, reflecting the elements of the beach. Match it with a meaningful multi-strand bracelet for your own self expression. Just remember to take them off before you jump in!
