Happy Valentines Day!!
OR singletines day or galentines day or whatever you prefer to call it!
This is my first single Valentine’s Day in four years and you know what..? I’m actually loving it! I’ve always been an advocate for self-love/ self-care, and so I definitely support this excuse to treat myself EXTRA special for a day! I know Valentine’s Day can be a rough go for some single gals, especially if you’re recently out of a relationship or maybe experiencing some unrequited love, but I assure you, Valentine’s Day can be a special day for all! Check out my favourite tips to show YOU how much you love yourself ❤️
1. Show off ya sexy self!!!:
Did you take a cute picture the other day? Post it and let the world know who the most important person in your life is: YOU!
2. Treat yourself like the queen you are with a spa day:
Being a queen doesn’t necessarily mean you have to pay a queenly price either! Pick out a new nail polish colour and maybe grab a cheap face mask (you can usually find them at the drugstore for ($1-$5), put on your favourite tunes, and give yourself a mani/pedi/facial!
3. Dress yourself up:
Throw on your absolute favourite outfit for the day. Something that makes you feel like the all star that you are! Or for a night in with yourself put on your fav pjs/lingerie because there’s no reason for it to sit around in your closet waiting for a new partner to come along! Be sexy just for you!
4. Stock your cupboards with your fav foods/drinks:
Ahhh .. nothing like an excuse to eat your favourite treats for a night! My personal favourite treats: popcorn, a glass of red wine, and then my favourite ice cream to top it all off (straight from the tub)!
5. Lastly, do something you love:
This could be absolutely anything from watching your favourite movie (and I mean really watching, not just sitting on your phone with Netflix in the background but properly taking in a really good movie), making really cool crafts, or just lighting a candle and curling up with your favourite book – so long as you love it, that’s the perfect way to spend a solo Valentine’s Day!
Hope you enjoy these tips! Remember: there’s no reason to be bitter on Valentine’s Day because you always have someone to love: YOU!
