alike.com.ph—As the cliché goes, there are those who wear their hearts on their sleeves. There’s beauty in openly expressing your emotions, and there’s an undeniable courage whenever you choose to be honest with how you feel.
And if it’s really what your gut tells you, then it’s okay to hate on Valentine’s—its obvious marketing ploys, the free pass you’re forced to give for PDA (public display of affection) among couples, and the overly cheesy gestures and social media posts you have to endure. Hatred is quite a strong statement, but the Curious Creative has turned it into a fun and cheeky everyday accessory: Button pins.
The self-deprecation gets real with its matching “single forever” and “forever single” pins, and it’s not even taking a jab at hugot culture. It simply pokes fun on one’s awareness of their very own relationship status and it conveniently becomes an instant response whenever people pry into your plans for the day.
The Curious Creatives’ pin set also pays homage to Arianna Grande’s new hit single, “Thank u, next.” They made a pin for those who are in the process of getting over a breakup, or in the lookout for a meaningful relationship. Like the song goes, one must wear this if you’re past your bitterness phase and have come to appreciate the lessons and memories you’ve experienced with your former lover.
There’s also a pin that has “love” printed across it for the unconditional love we receive and give everyday.
We guess it’s safe to say it’s okay to be single if your accessories are as cute as you are. The limited edition pins are available at retail stores La Local on Taft Avenue and Nook Lifestyle Store on España Boulevard.
