V-Day

Hi Readers!

Although we are in lockdown, and most shops are closed, that doesn’t stop them from selling us stuff for Valentine’s Day… Galentine’s Day… it’s everywhere; on TV, on social media, on the radio, in our inboxes, etc. 

Some of you will still feel pressured to purchase that card, those chocolates, that teddy bear, have dinner out, etc. Why not try something different this year? 

Some people love Valentine’s Day, others say it’s a money making/marketing “holiday”.

I would also like to put something out into the open… just because you are not in a couple, have a special someone in your life or you usually do a Galentine’s day with your friends, that doesn’t mean you cannot have a special day/evening to yourself. (And it shouldn’t just be on February 14th).

If you are spending lockdown alone, make this day extra special for yourself. Make your favourite food and/or dessert. Pamper yourself, buy yourself flowers or chocolate or whatever your heart desires – you deserve it! You can also purchase my Guide to Self-Love and spend a couple of hours doing that 😉 Don’t forget you get 25% off until the end of the month with the code LOVEYOURSELF21

If you are with your special someone, create a date night in. It does not have to be extravagant. Communicate, ask each other what you would like to do. And if that is to eat jelly babies while watching a murder movie, so be it. If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that all the glitz and glamour is not necessary and not as important as society makes it seem. 

Just remember that loving yourself, showing yourself self-love, showing your partner / special someone acts of love, gifting chocolate or flowers should not be limited to 1 day a year. Be spontaneous with yourself and others! 

Be kind to one another!
