February 2010 Girltalk: Are You Madly in Love with YOU?

February is the month of self-love… We all know that loving ourselves is something we should do… we all know that you have to love yourself first before you can love another… we would all love to take care of ourselves better but find it more of a dream than a reality. This month at Girtalk… Taking it Deeper™ we take a stand for self-love, because it is not a luxury, it is a must-have. Chief Girltalker Christine Arylo feels so strongly about self-love, she created this video to inspire you. Enjoy!
