Cupid, ah yes that little cherub who shoots arrows through unsuspecting hearts on Valentine’s Day! Well, sometimes he misses or picks the wrong person and you find yourself single on this greeting card holiday.
Single on Valentine’s Day?
Don’t fret! I am too and am encouraging all of us single folks to be our own Valentine and celebrate! If you don’t love yourself first, then you won’t appreciate loving someone else or them loving you back.
Self care is SO important in life! Feel good about YOU and the rest will follow. It’s time to treat yourself and enjoy life in general.
I love, LOVE and am hopeful that I’ll have a special someone this time next year. Until then, I am going to make a fun day of it and treat myself.
Have Fun – Alone
Does this sound bad to you? I don’t mind being alone because I am comfortable in my own skin.
Let’s look at some important questions and they are to be answered as a single person:
- What makes you feel cozy?
- What makes you feel happy?
- How do you unwind?
These answers are your Valentine to yourself! My answers are:
- Lounging in bed, in my PJs, because I NEVER do!
- Looking at decorating magazines and home decor catalogs dreaming of “what if”.
- Taking a bath, drinking a great glass of wine, and nibbling a good piece of chocolate.
A Valentine’s Day Celebration of You and for You!
So while you are figuring out what it is you want to do, I thought I would share my dream day lounging in bed. Unfortunately, Valentine’s Day falls on a Wednesday so I’ll wait celebrate on the weekend!
Plus share my recent master bedroom makeover! It’s all girly and pink for the perfect Valentine’s Day environment. Some affiliate links are included.
Must haves for me:
- Hot bath
- Comfy pajamas
- Fresh flowers by my bedside
- A candle lit that smells great
- Notorious Pink Wine
- Drug Store Russell Stover’s Hearts
- Pottery Barn, Ballard Designs Catalogs and some magazines
Ah complete and total decadence! This scene is perfection for me (well with someone else it would be even more perfect)! First I take a warm bubble bath with a bath bomb! So I smell good too 🙂
Then slide into bed with my candle lit, my lovely flowers beside me, piles of catalogs and magazines, a FEW boxes of chocolate and my wine by my bedside.
Master Bedroom Makeover
While I am single, I thought I’d really be girly and decorate my bedroom with pink. Plus blush pink is HOT in 2018, so I’ll enjoy it for the time being. If you want to see how I transformed my furniture from a dark stain CLICK HERE.
This room just makes me feel serene and relaxed – enjoy!
For some good love luck, my best friend also gave me a rose quartz crystal to help draw love into my life. I also keep that in my bedroom – it can’t hurt 🙂 Then I fill my prettiest glass for drinking that wonderful wine. Yes, eat and drink in bed!
TOTAL LUXURY! Create a sense of comfort for yourself whatever that may be!
Cupid Can be Stupid, but you aren’t!
Feel GREAT about yourself and love yourself the way you want to be loved! Love will come when you are ready and want it. Don’t let some greeting card holiday bring you down and be your OWN VALENTINE! I hope I’ve inspired you to love yourself FIRST!
