This heart-shaped lollipop brooch by Etsy store Modern Girl Blitz is perfect for those who have renounced Valentine's Day.

Modern Girl Blitz is a store dedicated to making "lady empowering quirky art and accessories," and this brooch definitely falls within that category. With a biting phrase emblazoned across the front ("eat me"), this brooch takes something traditionally sweet (hearts, lollipops) and transforms them into something filled with attitude. Reclaiming traditional symbols for your own use is definitely "empowering."

Of course, the brooch is also cute enough to wear for everyday use, not just Valentine's Day. Just try not to be too surprised if people choose to stay out of your way when you've got it on.
