Ps... yes that's me pouring myself a drank.... cheers to single life!
*Cue fairytale cloud bubble please*
Ahhh, V day. A time where the bluebirds sing and the man of your dreams holds your hand ever so tightly whilst he stares into your eyes. It's just you two, walking across the harbour, hand in hand looking out to the sea. He's just treated you to the most beautiful dinner ever and bought you all these gifts just to show him how much he loves yo..... oh wait, sorry you're single?
Then no freakin problem. Being single isn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be. When I was younger, I use to hate being single, but now as I've become the ripe old age of 25 (haha) I've started to become picker, lazier and Netflix has really filled that gap with happiness, the happiness like discovering an awesome tv show.
I no longer mind being single, it's taught me to become stronger, to care less about little things and to know my self-worth is greater than any guy who's going to treat me bad and to simply walk away if it's just not working out. Also, I really, really, really love myself.
So, if you're happy like me being ridiculously single and loving it, or perhaps you're feeling a little blue on v-day, then no worries I've got 7 hot lovely dovey tips to treat YO self. So stop moping around, click away from your ex's Instagram account, pick yourself up and get OUT THERE and BE YOU.
PS this goes for all my Foxy readers and Mr Foxes out there.
WARNING: If you're in a relationship, then this post isn't for you, read at your own RISK.
1. Buy yourself a v-day card. "To me from me"
I bought myself this really cute bacon and eggs one, and it plays music too, the tune is "So Happy Together - The Turtles" and damn straight I'm happy together with myself so that's a plus! So, why the card you ask? Well, I want you to write down everything you want to achieve this year, or your goals or my favourite simply telling yourself how ridiculously awesome you are. While you're at it, get yourself some roses too.
I got this card from Coles.
2. Go out to your favourite brunch/dinner spot with your other single mates or do it alone!
There's a lot of us that don't have boyfriends or girlfriends, so I'm sure you and your bestie can take yourselves out to your favourite foodie place you've been wanting to try out! Or if you enjoy your own company, then a table for one, please! Get out the laptop, sip on a big mug of coffee, and catch up on your favourite bloggers or tv shows and little online shopping!
3. Treat YO SELF to something decently expensive.
I got myself a Gucci card holder, it's like saying to yourself " thanks for loving you"
And, plus side you can't break up with yourself so 0 bad memories with that item, just saying. FROM ME TO ME.
4. Binge night in!
Gather up all your favourite food, or order some take in and have a good o'l marathon of your favourite shows! You'll be totally set for your night in and before you know it valentines day will be yesterday's news. Maybe make it like a week binge, I think couples like to post #throwbacks.
5. You know that old saying, "You can't have your cake and eat it too"
Well you sure can on valentines day, because you see that epic cake in the window, well I've got news for you.. it's ALL YOURS. You can have your very own cake, and eat it all too. Boom! Never thought you could conquer that saying, could ya?
Bentwood Cafe has the best deserts... and food
6. A little TLC to yourself
There are three options for this depending on your budget.
A. Book yourself into a fancy hotel and treat yourself to a day spa, i'm talking the works, get a massage, a facial, have a relaxing day and night to yourself. You deserve this.
B. Have yourself a home day spa, this means try out that new facial mask, paint your nails, give yourself a hair treatment. Followed by no.4 tip or... call the girls/guys up, you're going out for drinks at your favourite bar for a little drink and a good o'l fashion boogie, and yes I'm well aware V-day lands on a Wednesday, it's hump day baby. (no pun intended)
C. Get a blow-wave at Oscar Oscar! They also have special beauty hair packs you can choose, some of them even include a head and hand massage! WARNING: They're amazing, trust me! I've had them SIDE EFFECTS: You'll never want to wash your own hair again!
7. Have yourself a sexy secret.
Buy yourself the sexiest lingerie ever, why wait for someone else to buy it for you? This way, you'll be able to have your own sexy secret during v-day. The one i'm wearing is from www.simone-perele.com.au
8. Treat yo pet.
If you have a pet dog or cat, then treat your pet out to a puppachino and a new snack, cuddle up together, you know they've been #loyal to you always, and they always listen to all the intense things you talk about without ever answering back so give them a little extra love on v-day
And, although this isn't 9, but if you're in a relationship reading this and you know a single friend, then send them an email, card or give them a face-time call and tell them how much you love them as your friend. If you're feeling super generous and you don't mind, then let your single friend third wheel on Valentine's day!
Till next time Foxes! Happy Valentine's day...
