My fellow single ladies and men put your hands up! I am so excited to talk about this today. Even though I don’t typically love Valentine’s day. I can’t help but feel warm and fuzzy during the month of February toward my best gal pals, family members, and even furry pets.
Being single during a month that is all about loving a significant other can be difficult if you let it. I personally have found different things to do during the month or holiday to keep busy and even come to appreciate other things in your life.
1// This one is probably the most obvious but have a movie night at home! Put on your comfiest clothes, grab your nail polish, pick your 4 favorite romantic comedy movies, order some takeout, and treat yourself.
2// My fellow gal pals: pamper each other with a spa day and/or night. This could be so much fun. Have everyone bring their favorite wine, 2-5 nail polish colors. And their favorite candy. You could have a wine tasting or even lightening rounds with wine and the candy that you bring and do each other’s toes and nails.
3// Check out your local events in your area. I am going to list a few with photos here below. But you could go to a bar crawl and meet new people! I’ve always wanted to do this after an episode of New Girl. Nick gets dumped and then everyone had to go on his bar crawl where they picked up other singles and people who were dumped.
4// This one is my personal favorite and probably what I will do. Take yourself on a date! Go see a movie by yourself, go get a fun dinner by yourself, even go on a drive or to the spa by yourself. You probably haven’t pampered yourself in a long time and what better way to treat yourself then taking care of yourself.
5// Board game nights are some of the best nights I’ve ever had with my close friends. I love The Game Of Life, Monopoly, Settlers Of Catan, Speak Out (you know that mouthguard game?), Sorry, Clue, and so much more.
6// Eat dessert first. some of my fav places for a sweet tooth are the following:
7// Go hiking with your girlfriends & watch the sunset! Or if you’re in the mood for wonder then Antelope Canyon is gorgeous this time of year (or all year round).
I hope that these ideas helped you in some way and that you treat yourself this holiday. Enjoy!
