The Single Girls Guide to Having a Happy Valentine’s Day In!

14 Feb

       If you’re a single lady Valentine’s Day is the last day you want to wake up to. Everyone is all mushy gushy and ready to be the epitome of cheesy in love. Well I’m here to tell you it is totally ok to be single on V-Day.  I have a plan so that you can actually enjoy V-Day night without having a significant other. (For all of you with minds in the gutter, no not like that)

Get yourself something sweet…or salty 🙂

I am a chocolate freak and luckily chocolate is in over abundance in cute boxes all across the country. Splurge a bit, I mean it is for you. Who knows what you like better than yourself? Those little mini cakes at Baskin-Robbins look good too. If you like salty instead join the bacon of the month club, haha. Whatever makes you happy get it. It is the first step of your awesome V-Day night in.










Set the mood

Just because you are alone without anyone of the opposite sex around; doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to set a romantic mood. Place some candles in your favorite scent around the house. Buy some roses and scatter some petals all over the place. Make your home sexy and intimate to please you. You will feel relaxed and confident in such a beautiful setting.











Get pretty with it!

Pamper yourself with a luxurious bath, and then get your pretty on. If you have a favorite make up look, go for it. This is the perfect time to put your hair in rollers so you can have big movie star curls. It’s just like when you dress yourself up well to go out only better. This is your time to feel like a queen. Use your most expensive product. Every girl no matter what her income has that one item that she has splurged on; but will rarely use so she doesn’t run out. This is the time to whip it out, you deserve it.










Wear your favorite

Now I collect shoes, pumps to be exact. Not that many because I am a woman on a budget, but shoes make me happy. I don’t have many opportunities to wear them so I usually do these diva nights in every now and then to quench my glamorous thirst. Pull out that bombshell dress and those screaming red pumps. Making yourself feel and look good is the first step to being confident in your own skin. This is crucial on Valentine’s Day since women who find themselves single on February 14th often feel less confident and inadequate. Don’t feel this way ladies.










Grab your best feel good movie

Don’t go for the Notebook or A Walk to Remember type films. These films often make women feel sad that they aren’t in a completely unrealistic but desirable relationship. Go for a film where the heroines are down on their luck but persevere; and in the end they find their knight in shining armor. You will find yourself cheering for the heroine and happy for her when she finally finds the ideal man for her. You might even find some relationship inspiration from the film. (Fingers crossed!)

Invite your best single girlfriends over for a glamorous; sweet treat filled, movie night!

Your best friends are always there for you and when you are all single it only makes for more fun. You can all be dressed to impress, armed with sweet treats, and lots of single lady fun and support. The key here is positivity. No man bashing or bringing up failed and past relationships allowed. It is all about fun, and celebrating your inner and outer beauty. So please ladies and even gentlemen who are single, it is just one day. There are many more in your not so distant future that are ready for love. So have fun and be positive.

    LOL – good advice that even us married women can use because after the first few Valentine’s you might as well be single 🙂

    You know what’s so great about Valentines Day? Post-Valentines chocolate on sale! I am currently munching on some Ferrero Rochers and guarding a box of Lindt truffles from a friend. 🙂
