Valentine’s Day is definitely played up as a holiday all about dating, love, and romance. It can sometimes feel like you have to do something to celebrate, or that you’re missing out if you’re not in a relationship. But, these things aren’t true. You can still enjoy Valentine’s Day as a single lady.
A Single Lady’s Guide to Valentine’s Day
Being single doesn’t mean you’re alone: you still have the same friends, family, and support system you have the rest of the year. You may not have epic plans on February 14 but it doesn’t mean you’re alone.
Treat yourself & do something fun: indulge in your favorite guilty pleasure (see one of mine below), paint your nails, or rent a movie. Enjoy something you may not always get the chance to do during the busy week
Dress up: Wear a fun outfit, do your hair, and wear your favorite lipstick. I tend to feel great when I take the time to get ready. But, if you feel better in sweats, wear those all night with your hair on top of your head.
It’s just ONE day: if the other things I mentioned do nothing for you and you’re still dreading the day, remember that it will be over the next day and things will be back to normal.
You don’t have to be single to make use of these tips. Maybe you are busy this week or just don’t want to celebrate. These tips can cheer you up, too!
Single or in a relationship, you are beautiful and worthy of all the best things in life. Celebrate yourself and the things you love about yourself.
Cards for my coworkers and my favorite treat, chocolate-covered marshmallows! PLUS, 100 calories candy bars (from CVS) perfect for indulging!
I’ll be working but I have a fun outfit planned and am bringing cards and candy to my coworkers because I love love and any reason to celebrate. It’s not always easy for me to stay positive but this is a day that I want to enjoy.
I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!!
