There are many guides written on how to celebrate the Valentine´s day with your man, that is, when you´re taken, but there aren´t many about how to celebrate this day of hearts even if you´re single. Just because you´re flying solo doesn´t mean you should be sitting in the corner envying those who are going to a date and feeling sorry for yourself. Definitely NOT!
Now brace yourself, grab that Valentine´s day outfit of yours and be ready to rock this Valentine´s day. Here are 6 ideas to ensure you have fun.
1. Spend the Valentine´s Day indulging in everything you love to do.
Got a book you´ve been reading for months? Get it now and finish it. Sip champagne while you take a long, hot bubble bath and read your favorite fashion magazine. Slip into a piece of really comfortable pajamas and dance around the house to a party CD, Rent movies starring your favorite Hollywood hunk and spend the night admiring his hunkiness and beauty. Remember, you´re able to do this because you´re single.
2. Spend the money you would have spent on your Valentine on yourself instead.
This is the right time to splurge on yourself. You need not buy someone a new watch or a fancy tool, so go and get that fabulous dress and killer heels you´ve been fancying for a while now. Celebrate your single life by hitting the shops! If you´re enjoying a warm weather, get a hot new bikini and spend the day on the beach or the night on a pool. If yours is a cold weather, grab that trendiest and newest parka available. Get a massage or an amazing new hairdo. Look great and feel better than ever.
3. Get your best single girlfriends together.
Order takeaway, try a new restaurant in town, shop together, have a sleepover and a Gossip Girl marathon from seasons 4 tp 5 in your night gowns or PJs. When you´re done, sit around and share your funniest memories ever or swap some horror stories.
4. Embrace single life by doing something new or you´d never usually do.
Can you not cook worth to save your life? Or are you too busy to prepare a healthy meal? This is your time. Get a recipe book and pick a delicious and healthy recipe to do, or learn to bake a cake. Want something crazier? Grab your best friend and visit an erotic shop. Explore the toys you´ve never seen before and spy on people who are trying to buy a tool to aid their happiness. You´ll get some really good laughs.
5. Book your friends together for a pampering afternoon.
Spend your Valentine´s Day afternoon cozying up with your best pals in a manicure and pedicure session. Paint your nail bright red or try the of-the-moment nail art.
6. Start your Valentine´s day with a bang, feel good and make an impression
Set the mood early in the morning. Slip into one of your favorite outfits, work appropriate, of course, and apply a really good make up. Feel empowered, free and confident. Look and feel great before you leave the house, who knows, you might catch the eye of that hunk in your department.
Have a wonderful Valentine´s Day, darlings!
