Pamper Yourself This Valentine's Day!

Hey Everyone,
  People tend to think that Valentine's Day is just for people in relationships; however, it doesn't matter whether you're single or not because Valentine's Day is about embracing and celebrating all love and appreciating the people in your life.  Over the years, I've come to realize that whether we have a date for Valentine's Day or not, we should try to show a little love for ourselves as well.  A great way to do that is through a little pampering and I'm going to show you a few ways to do that. You can have a girls night and do some of these things, do them to prepare for a date or just do them by yourself.  One thing's for sure though, whether you're single or in a relationship, this post should be useful for everyone.

Why not stay in and read a great romance novel?  There is something so relaxing about snuggling up under a warm blanket on the couch with a hot cup of your favourite tea and a good novel.  This is personally one of my favourite things to do.

 If you plan on having a girls night, you might find doing some baking to be a fun idea.  Why not try some heart shaped sugar cookies (make sure to ice them with festive pink and white icing) or some delicious red velvet cupcakes?You can even try being a little more imaginative than usual and try out a few brand new recipes.

There is nothing better than settling down with some popcorn and hot chocolate to watch a great romance movie (I love romantic comedies).  This is one of my favourite ideas because it's something that can be done by yourself, with a group of great friends, or even your boyfriend!  

 Take a relaxing, luxurious bath.  I know that personally, I never have time to take luxurious baths, but Valentine's Day might be the perfect opportunity to break out your favourite bath products, light a strawberry or cranberry pear bellini scented candle and just relax amongst the bubbles as you listen to your favourite music.  

Give yourself a manicure and pedicure!  Try going for baby pinks or deep seductive reds to get into the Valentine's Day spirit.  Maybe add a little glitter on top or if you're able to, maybe try some fun nail art!

Do something a little different with your look and change up your lipsticks!  I wrote a post all about this last year, so click here to read it.  Whether you're going on a date or just staying in with some great friends, why not try rocking a sexy red lip or an understated but beautiful baby pink shade?

I hope you found this post helpful or at least interesting and I hope you all have a wonderful day/night tomorrow!
