Portland Girl #Self-Love Lowdown

February is full of propaganda about lovers and partners, but we want to promote the very act of caring for oneself (regardless of your relationship status!)

For this weeks post, we’ve gathered a number of Portland-based businesses to curate a fun selection of events, experiences and things to spice up your Valentines Day and engage in some #Self-Love!


1.#Self-Love ‘Booty Care’

BootyLuv Heart


Booty Luv® Fitness was created to help people, especially women, develop a POSITIVE relationship with their hips, booty, core, and thighs. The fusion of FUN-ctional training, barre, Pilates, yoga, kick-boxing and “booty breakdowns™” increases strength, flexibility, and balance-and it’s all set to dirty bass music with no misogynistic lyrics! Booty Luv® inspires you to love your body and booty for what it can DO, to feel sexy and strong.

2.#Self-Love ‘Story-Style!’

Mystery Box


sex-centric storytelling show where people from all spectrums tell their true, unscripted and unmemorized stories about sex and sexuality on stage in front of a live audience. Many of their stories promote self-love, and self-acceptance as well as allowing audience members to connect and relate to the stories being told that often result in the same self-love realizations.

3. #Self-Love ‘Paint your heart out!’

4. #Self-Love ‘Beauty Boost!’

Sourced from around the globe. They encourage you to create small but restorative rituals in your everyday life. Waking up to a spritz of organic Bulgarian Rose Water every morning as a way to start your day with joy. Or masking with Rhassoul Clay while you take a salt soak in the evening to detoxify and let go. In our busy, modern lives it’s important to take time to chill out, unwind and treat ourselves to a quiet experience every now and then. This is how they promote self love at Beauty Archaeology.


Try our most popular duo, buy an Argan Boost Balm & Hydrate Rose Water together for only $40! Savings of $10 on the set through February 29, 2016. Use code ‘selflove’ at checkout!

5. #Self-Love ‘Fashion Yourself Sexy…’
