|We live in challenging times and it goes without saying
that a little more love in the world would make it a better
place. If you look up the opposite of Love, you might find Hate
but I actually think it is greed – the need for more at whatever the cost. In
all things, there is an amount that is “enough” which there are no
rules or guidelines around, it is left up to the individual to
decide. I have found that the more content I am and the more love
I feel, the less of everything else I need. Love truly is about
giving without any expectation of reciprocation because in itself when
you give you receive.
Valentine’s Day is a great reminder of the capacity we all have to
Love, so don’t be afraid to show it, in fact flaunt it! Reach
out to the extra special people in your life and express your love for
them – this can be done in words over the phone, in a letter in an
e-mail; you may want to present a gift or an act of kindness – whatever
your choice, it’s yours to give.
If a gift is in your wheelhouse for this Valentine’s Day, Ruby Tuesday
is your one-stop shop! We have beautiful candles by Voluspa, as
well as a great selection of handbags by Matt
& Nat, winter boots (on sale) by Nex Grip,
and of course jewellery. My highlights this week include from Mana
Designs the “For the
Love of Love” earrings and necklace – crafted from
walnut and sterling silver. From Leah Alexandra, a local Vancouver
Designer, we have the Love
Token necklaces available in square or round and
crafted in gold vermeil, and from Pyrrha, the Heart Print
Talisman which reads in French “You are imprinted
on my heart”. Lastly, we have cashmere/merino
toques by Queen and Grace – who doesn’t love a warm,
cozy and stylish hat?
Visit us in the Whistler village and enjoy the sunshine while you get
your Valentine's Day shopping done! We're open 10 am - 7 pm daily.
Of course, you can also shop all of our new arrivals,
