Ohhhh, the month of loveeeee


♥ Happy month of LOVE, dolls! ♥

I am SO glad that January is finally behind us. We are one step closer to spring. Weeeeeee! And I love the month of FEBRUARY! I know that Valentine's day is a "made up, Hallmark holiday" but I still l-o-v-e celebrating it regardless. And this V-day I am really looking forward to seeing Dear John! The movie is based on the novel by best-selling author Nicholas Sparks and it tells a story of a young soldier home on leave, and an idealistic college student he falls in love with during her spring vacation. I have read the book several times, and I hope that the movie is equally as good.

The gloriously cute Amanda + epic love story + soldier at war + the beach + THE CHAN = Movie Of The Year (in my eyes!)

♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥

Speaking of all things romantic, below are a few fun facts I found about kissing and I thought they would be a fun pre-valentines day treat!

1. Two out of every three couples turn their heads to the right when they kiss.

2. A simple peck uses two muscles; a passionate kiss, on the other hand, uses all 34 muscles in your face. Now that's a rigorous workout!

3. Like fingerprints or snowflakes, no two lip impressions are alike

4. Kissing is good for what ails you. Research shows that the act of smooching improves our skin, helps circulation, prevents tooth decay, and can even relieve headaches.

5. The average person spends 336 hours of his or her life kissing.

6. Ever wonder how an "X" came to represent a kiss? Starting in the Middle Ages, people who could not read used an X as a signature. They would kiss this mark as a sign of sincerity. Eventually, the X came to represent the kiss itself.

7. Talk about a rush! Kissing releases the same neurotransmitters in our brains as parachuting, bungee jumping, and running.

8. The average woman kisses 29 men before she gets married.

9. Men who kiss their partners before leaving for work average higher incomes than those who don't.

10. The longest kiss in movie history was between Jane Wyman and Regis Tommey in the 1941 film, You’re in the Army Now. It lasted 3 minutes and 5 seconds. So if you've beaten that record, it's time to celebrate!

Hope you all a wonderful, love-filled Tuesday! Make sure to stop back this week for my fabulous giveaway!
