    martinique do you believe in love?


    Posted on February 14, 2015 by MARTINIQUE ISLAND STYLE | 4 Comments

    it's valentines day... in saying that, historically we've been such romantics here at martinique island style as well as quite idealistic in regards to coupling and to love itself. so what we are about to say and put forward to you all, may almost appear to be a bit of a contradiction.

    this article has come along and although not so new, it is poignant and relevant to the present. a touch dark in part, some may even use the term morbid, yet it's portrayal of love is at least honest and fundamentally true given our experience in this field to date... it hit a nerve.

    love begins with us digging deep within, and no matter our flaws, love begins with us loving ourselves first and foremost. we then believe, and in all honesty, that the rest will fall into place. whether single or in a relationship, we will be happier if we apply the philosophy of this written piece posted below, to our lives. well that's what we think anyway.

    our belief here at martinique island style, is to see yourself as the rich, plump, beautiful cake and if there may be a relationship for you in there somewhere, well this should be seen as the icing. some call it the cherry on top. we believe that you should be whole and fullfilled first and foremost, as this will only prove to be a positive for you no matter what your relationship status may be.

    given it is martinique island style's way to always see the beauty in absolutely everything, everywhere, and at all times, even we thought this piece relevent and true. maybe you will too. take a look... and let us know what you think.

    so, in saying this... happy valentines day lovers. oh, and don't forget to get out there and buy yourself that valentines treat that you've always wanted. after all you're in love remember, today, tomorrow and forever and ever... happily ever after in fact - with you! you are beautiful. don't you forget it. mwah x
