Whether you think this holiday is overrated or underrated; and whether your significant other is a person or an animal, make sure to love yoself this Valentine’s Day.
Yes, Valentine’s Day has become this commercialized holiday where companies make money off of men trying to get into women’s good graces… and other things.
That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take advantage of this opportunity to indulge yourself!
Buy that expensive chocolate bar you always stare at when you’re walking down the candy aisle in the supermarket!
No, really though.
Valentine’s Day is not only about expensive flowers and giant teddy bears. It’s about spoiling yourself.
Here’s a few more ideas:
Buy one of those perfectly sized tubs of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream.
My personal favorite is Phish Food complete with marshmallow swirls, caramel swirls, and pieces of fish-shaped fudge.
Call out of work and sleep in instead. You deserve those extra hours of beauty sleep.
Take a fancy bath
Go to Lush and treat yourself to a bath bomb and some luxury essential oils because you’re worth a $15 bath.
Get a mani-pedi
Go all out and get both the manicure and the pedicure this time. Maybe even splurge for one of those fancy pedicures. Just make sure to shave your legs before you go. No one deserves to be subjected to Sasquatch legs.
Go to a spa
If you’ve never gotten a full body massage, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to experience one. Some say professional spa massages are better than sex… that’s for you to decide.
Treat yourself to some sexy lingerie
Shop til’ you drop! Or until your credit card gets declined. A few options are Agent Provocateur, For Love & Lemons, and if you really wanna go all out there’s La Perla. Just make sure you get some stuff that makes you feel hot AF. You deserve it.
Send yourself flowers for the hell of it
Take note from Cher Horowitz from Clueless and send yourself some flowers.
Most of all, LOVE YOURSELF
Love you for you and make Valentine’s Day your betch… and don’t be creepin’ on the happy couples out there.
