As a mom, we have to make an extra effort to take care and pamper ourselves. I remember, my early years of mommyhood, I used to feel so guilty even to plan something for myself, let alone actually execute it. “You owe yourself the love that you so freely give to other people” This is something that all us moms need to believe in and follow. Since Valentine’s day is around the corner, why not make the most of it and indulge in some self-love and pampering.
Since ages, “Love” has become synonymous to the color red, roses, and diamonds and chocolate. 9 out of 10 people love chocolate and the 10th person is always lying. So, an awesome chocolate filled pampering it is.
