Hi Everyone! So Wednesday marks not only the beginning of Lent but also Valentines Day. I think that particularly when you’re a teenager Valentine’s day can be a day that you either love or loathe. It’s the opportunity to shower your significant other with a load of tacky cards, chocolates and gifts and Instagram to be filled with appreciation posts. Naturally, if your single on Valentine’s day, especially when your young, it can feel pretty isolating particularly when your friends are in relationships.
I’m not really embarrassed to admit that I’ve pretty much been single for most Valentines days in my 22 years of existence, something that society may deem as being odd when it really just boils down to the fact that I’ve simply not found that ‘special someone’ yet. Although this sounds like its turning into a pity post #foreveralone *lol* I want to show that being single on Valentine’s day really isn’t all that bad and at the end of the day it’s an excuse to spoil yourself.
I’m a big advocate for ‘treat yo self’ and these are a few simple ways that you can pamper yourself on Valentines Day, bae or no bae.
A new piece of lingerie, I’ve had this pretty bra from Bravissimo for a while now, its such a delicate piece with a lovely floral print. There’s something about new lingerie that makes you feel gorgeous. Victor and Rolf is my fav scent of the minute and its perfect for Valentine’s day with its floral notes. Finally, the perfect way to round off the day is with a Lush bath bomb if you missed my Valentine Lush Haul you can check it out here.
I hope that whatever you do for Valentine’s day whether it’s with a partner, out with friends or soaking in a bubble bath you have a fab day! Leave me a comment about what your Valentine plans are and be sure to follow if you’re not already doing so.
