Valentine’s Day: Looking After Yourself When Everyone Else is in Love
Valentine’s Day is here; and you’ve found yourself on your own with no plans on February 14th.
And that’s okay
Whether it’s movies, Instagram, or the people around you, Valentine’s Day has taken over all our feeds – online and in real life. But we’re here with our tips on looking after yourself this Valentine’s Day when it feels like the whole world is in a love bubble.
Remember It’s A Highlight Reel
Remember no one is going to post an argument with their beau on Valentine’s Day. Your feed will be full of red roses, teddy bears and chocolates, and even romantic getaways. And that’s great for them. But remember none of these people are sharing the argument they had last week over who wouldn’t wash up after dinner, or who was late on date night. And the gals posting their romantic dinners definitely didn’t post them putting their lashes on in the car on the way to the restaurant. Trust me – from experience.
Valentine’s Is The Perfect Treat Day
Whether it’s a bubble bath with your favourite products, or fresh bed sheets and a chill Netflix night, treat yourself to something special this Valentine’s, and it doesn’t have to cost the earth. If you fancy some flowers, there’s some gorgeous options in the supermarket for less than what a chicken fillet roll is costing these days, and of course boxes of chocolates are falling out shop doors, so why not? As my grandmother always says – there’s no one better than yourself!
Grab The Gang
It probably feels like you’re the only one not coupled up on Valentine’s Day, but I can guarantee you there’s so many people feeling just like you are in the lead up to V Day. So grab your single gang and make a night just for you! Whether it’s a cinema or bowling group date, a fancy dinner, or pj’s and facemasks, it’s a sure thing you’ll feel the love with your friends.
There’s Plenty More Where That Came From
It might feel like the end of the world right now, but luckily, we have so many more Valentine’s Days to celebrate. By the time you’re 25 you won’t remember that you didn’t have an exciting Valentine’s Day when you were 16. And who says we can only spread the love on February 14th? Whether it’s romantic, platonic, or self love, it’s important to remember to love yourself and those around you all year round, not just when the cards and red roses are out.
Whether it’s Valentine’s, Galentine’s or a self-love affair, what are your plans for the most romantic time of the year?
