Top 6 Valentine’s Day Ideas for the Single Ladies

So all the single ladies (+ guys) out there, who to be honest do not really give a damn about Valentine’s day… you guessed it. I have a few tips to make it extra special for you, too!

  1. Does your room/workplace/home need a bit of sorting out? Then put together a playlist on youtube of your favourite songs, play it, sing to it, and start cleaning! Trust me… It’s a good workout, everything will look spotless and you will feel so much better!
  2. Why not invite your friends over and have a girls night in?!
  3. and what is a girls night in without a cheesy movie and some popcorn?! So put a cheesy movie on or if you are anything like me, then a comedy.
  4. Pamper yourself! Go to a spa or just get pampered at home.
  5. Go shopping! Treat yourself with something! Loving yourself and spending some money on yourself doesn’t hurt.
  6. Do something you normally wouldn’t do or used to have a hobby which you want to take up again? Like painting? Get the paintbrush out and start painting!

And that’s it!
