Valentine’s Day is here. Some of you are dreading this day, because you haven’t yet managed to get yourself a hot date, and you fear the world judgement on your shoulders because you will not post this cute picture of you two kissing or holding hands in some romantic scenery. Some of you, however, will dress pretty and grab some cocktails in town after work with your Gelantine ( best friend date) or if you are already passed the ‘romantic stage of relationship’ you most likely just say ‘lets save the money for some other shit’. Least are those, who just simply don’t give a shit about the day.
Whatever place you are taking from above description, there must be an absolutely few things you have to do this Valentine’s Day for the simple 1 rule: make yourself feel good AF. As much as Valentine’s Day is a commercialised tradition that clearly is there to drives sales in florists, cards shops and restaurants, still it will make us feel slightly different today. Not only because every single radio station drops Valentine’s Day every 5th word or your inbox is full of crap screaming ‘spend your f*** money” but for the simple thing, that everyone needs love. Whether you heartbroken or in a relationship or a fearless independent girl- deep down we all want to feel loved at least once in our lives. Valentine’s Day can be romantic day and excuse to drop other excuses and spend more time with the prettier half or it can be a painful reminder that we have not anyone to spend the day with. If you didn’t get ( and you know you won’t get suprised flowers) treat yourself, or to show your boyfriend (check my Valentine’s Gift Guide for Her) instead.
Whatever position you are right now, remember one thing. You are an amazing person no matter what. Practise self-love no matter what. Be confident being yourself no matter what.
This below 22 things you must do is for all that above, whether you do during Valentine’s Day or over a weekend then you have it more time.
1. pour yourself a Rose Spritz! Whatever is the day of the week, a glass of Prosecco won’t harm anyone. This will set you in a lovely mood. Version for the females is to add Fentimans Pink Lemonade for additional sweet taste and the pleasure of indulging a millennial pink bubbly in your hand while relaxing. We all love Proseccos, don’t we? Fentimans, introduced this year Rose Spritz cocktails including 125ml Rose Lemonade alongside 125ml Prosecco.
fun fact: Roses are heavily recognised as an essential part of Valentine’s Day and our Rose Lemonade is made using real roses from the “Valley of the Roses” in Bulgaria.
You can garnish your drink with strawberries, blueberries or rosemary. I prefer mine straight up ( same like juices -no bits) as I’m so fussy, but you girl, go and have fun!
2. get that set of lingerie It’s a must, no matter what. There is no brainer, that wearing pretty underwear will makes you feel more confident. Even if this is just to watch crappy TV and eating ice cream, wear something that will make you feel so feminine and good on your skin. Celebrate the fact that you have the great body, no matter what size you are and that you feel confident in it. This Very.co.uk beautiful Valentina Lingerie Set is the one you should definitely get, as is the prettiest set on any budget! Search for more at @dorina_official
3. bubble bath another must tonight. Pour nice hot water into the bath and overdo with bath liquid, why not? Pour some handmade salts ( or lazy girl version of shelf ones) add some aromas and lit a candle on. Bring your favourite book and switch off your phone. This is for 2 reasons. A, because you don’t want accidentally drawn your phone while shouting at the Facebook popup of your couple friends photos. B) because even if you bea a is next door in living room snoring on a sofa or getting into next level of Xbox game, you still want to have that time for yourself. No social media- no social at all- Just You. ( or You both in that bath, which is even a better option for couples!)
