This year Valentine’s Day falls on a Thursday, which actually happens to be my favourite day of the week. I can’t say the same for Valentine’s Day itself though. That’s not to say that I’m a complete hater of the day, I’d describe my feelings towards it as… indifferent. As most of us will be, I’m spending my Valentine’s Day at work (at my LFW internship) and am planning a pretty chilled evening afterwards. With just a few days to go until the 14th, I’m swooping in for my fellow single gals and putting together a bit of a guide to enjoying Valentine’s Day on your tod.
Wear Your Favourite Outfit
If there’s one thing that will put me in a good mood it’s feeling good about what I’m wearing. Something that I do when I have a big presentation or something similar is make sure that I’m wearing an outfit that I feel great in. It hasn’t got to be an outfit per se but could be something as simple as a pair of earrings that you love or doing your hair in your favourite style. I haven’t picked my outfit yet but I know that it will most likely include my favourite green leather coat.
Listen to a Banging Playlist on your Way to Work
Lucky for you there’s no shortage of great playlists on my blog and Spotify account for you to check out. For me, what qualifies as a banging playlist is my February Funk one which I shared this month. If there’s any music that’s going to make me feel like I can take on the day it is definitely a bit o’ funk. Alternatively I also have a Girl Power Playlist which could be especially fitting for Valentine’s Day. So whack on your favourite playlist and start your day off right!
Treat Yourself to Something Nice at Lunch
If there’s any day to treat yourself to something a bit special for lunch it’s definitely Valentine’s Day. If you normally pack yourself lunch then maybe treat yourself by going out for a bite during your lunch break. You could even make yourself something special the night before and take it to work with you. Whatever feels like a treat to you, do it!
Have A Bit of A Pamper
Any excuse to have an evening in with a gin and a face mask is a winner for me. Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to squeeze a pamper sesh into your week. Run yourself a bath, grab a beverage of your choosing and watch a film. And of course do it all whilst eating an array of different chocolates and cheeses.
What are your plans for Valentine’s Day? Are you spending it with someone special or, like me, are you having a chilled one by yourself? Let me know in the comments. If any of you have any other tips on how to spend Valentine’s Day as a single gal then send them my way!
