7 WAYS TO GET OVER THE VALENTINE’S DAY SLUMP & STILL CELEBRATE
To some people, Valentine’s Day can be a drag and that’s for a number of reasons. Maybe you just had a bad break up, you’re single and have been for a while, or being alone is just too much to handle.
As an advocate to self-love, I’m here to help you get out of this Valentine’s Day slump and celebrate anyway! I was single for a very long time and always found ways to celebrate anyway because who is more important than yourself anyway? No one, that’s who!
Here are 7 ways to celebrate and still enjoy Valentine’s Day:
1. GO OUT WITH ANOTHER SINGLE FRIEND
I remember the first Valentine’s Day that I was single and most of my friends had boyfriend’s at the time so I decided to text my gorgeous and fun friend Nathalia and asked if she’d love to be my Valentine.
Not only did she say yes, but I literally had one of the best Valentine’s I’d ever had because I celebrated with a friend who was also in the same place as I was and we shared a day of love together.
So, grab a friend, your mom, your aunt, whoever and celebrate with laughs and most importantly love.
2. HOST A SINGLE’S ONLY VALENTINE’S DAY DINNER
I think hosting a dinner with all your single friends and having them bring one single friend is a great way to get to know other people. Not only do you meet new people but you’re all in this together.
By hosting you gather a group of people so this day doesn’t feel so crummy. Be that outgoing person and host even if you feel uncomfortable you’ll thank yourself later for doing it.
3. TREAT YO’SELF TO A SPA DAY
Instead of spending the money on someone else that day you get the opportunity to gift yourself a day at the spa! What better way to enjoy a day of love than by loving yourself.
Relax at the spa to forget all your worries! Trust me you won’t regret it.
4. STAY IN & PAMPER YOURSELF
Okay, so maybe the spa thing isn’t for you because you don’t want to be around people. Here’s an alternative buy yourself a self-love kit from my Self-Love Pop Shop store, get a nice bottle of wine and order in some food!
Pampering yourself doesn’t mean you have to go out it can all happen in the comfort of your home and the best part? You don’t have to see human beings for the day.
5. BINGE WATCH SEX & THE CITY WITH WINE & DESSERT
We all love Sex & the City and if you don’t I’m sorry for you. Jokes aside, grab a bottle of wine, your favorite dessert, and just binge-watch all day until this day of love is over with!
I did this one year and it was honestly the best therapy of my life! I had no contact with humans and got lost in the show. Good Valentine’s Day that was.
6. BUY YOURSELF A GIFT
Get that thing you’ve always wanted! If you had a Valentine’s you would’ve spent the money on someone else anyway, right? So, why not spend that money on yourself?
Do you want that pricey makeup kit? Go get it. Are you wanting a new wardrobe? Go buy it. Learn to gift yourself for all the hard work you do, you deserve it!
7. GET A TATTOO
I know how crazy this sounds but go out and be adventurous. You can always remember this moment as the time you got a tattoo that one Valentine’s Day you were single. It’ll make for a great story in the future.
