Valentines day is just around the corner and as if being single is not already hard enough, we are given a day to have love and relationships flaunted in our faces.
No matter where you go or what you do, hearts and chocolates have surrounded us in every store front and street corner.
We slowly start to become bitter and plan a day of hate, chocolate, and burning our ex’s things in a fireplaces. But it really doesn’t always have to be this way. Valentines day doesn’t have to suck if you have the right tools and mindset prepared ahead of time.
Here are the top five ideas that will take out this hallmark holiday of a day dedicated to sappy romance and over priced chocolates; and highlight the idea of love. This year Valentines Day will be a time to treat yourself and celebrate just what it means to be you- to be single and amazing.
Hit up a Bar
Just because you’re single on Valentines day does not mean you have to hide yourself at home and be alone. Put on your favourite dress with your favorite matching two piece set (check out our 50 shades of lace post for colour options) and your highest heels. Round up all your girls and hit up a bar.
Nothing says love and romance like a night filled with laughter and drinks!
Flaunt your ability to have a great time with friends and celebrate a day of loving the people who will always be there for you.
Throw a Party
As drinking alone on Valentines Day is becoming a pattern, why not mix it up a bit and invite some guests to join.
Nothing says you have a problem like drinking alone, but with one or two people involved its completely acceptable!
Invite over some friends for drinks, appetizers, and maybe a slasher movie or two. With the right play list and some great friends this night could go down in history as one of the greatest.
Try to mix it up a bit and make it a theme night. We suggest sexy lingerie or lounge wear, but you can do something less fun and make it a 60s night theme.
Valentines Day doesn’t always have to be about spending your day worrying about making someone else happy. Sometimes the only person that deserves to be happy and treated is yourself.
Remember just how amazing you really are and treat yourself to something special. Go out and buy yourself a gift (that brand new gorgeous lingerie 2 piece set you’ve wanted for a while but couldnt get yourself to spend the money on- Yea todays the day to do that shopping), then hit up your favorite spa and get yourself a makeover. Let yourself enjoy just being you.
Do whatever you have to do to make yourself feel like you deserve to be happy. Of course this is something you should be doing everday, but I feel like Valentines Day is a great time to start if you haven’t already!
Devote Time To A Neglected Hobby
When was the last time you took time out of your day to do something you really loved? Forget your chores, skip out on whatever it is that keeps you busy and go do something you really enjoy.
Dance around to your favourite songs in your favourite underwear (a personal favourite), read a book, take a hot bath, try the yoga class you’ve been promising yourself you’d start for weeks, or do something
completely out of your comfort zone like pole fitness!
As Valentines Day is falling on a long weekend this year, you have no excuses but to make the day about remembering what used to make you happy and doing them all again.
Appreciate The Single Life
You’re single by choice, not because you have to be. Relish in the idea that you are better off being alone than with someone who drives you crazy. You are free to have fun, try new things, and be with different people.
Appreciate what you have and why you have it because your life is under your control and you can change it at anytime.
Dita Von Teese, a very wise woman once said: “Every woman needs a little moment of beauty to have for herself”.
Well make this day your day for complete beauty and self embracement.
