We have some ideas on how you can spend this Valentine’s day, whether your single, taken, or celebrating with your girls.
Should you be unable to have a usual Galentine’s Day with your girls, we highly recommend a Zoom brunch to celebrate the day with bottomless mimosa’s from the comfort of your own home. Dress (from the top up, obviously), in your fanciest looks, put on some lip stick and catch up over homemade avocado toast. We even think your friends will enjoy the cat filter, should you choose to add it.
A Fancy Night In
We miss dressing up! Fancy shoes, a hint of makeup and the process of getting dressed while listening to the newest Miley Cryus album to get us in the mood. After months of quarantining with your S.O. or roommate, make the night a little special by getting dressed up, cooking up (or ordering in, if that’s your thing) a fancy meal, putting on a record, and sipping on a fancy cocktail or classic glass of champagne. We’re excited already to gussy up, even if we’re not leaving the house.
An Evening of Self-Care
To quote Leo Buscaglia, “To love others you must first love yourself.” Why not spend the day of love, taking the evening to love yourself? Long time readers of The Strategy know, we are big self-care enthusiasts (read here, here, and here), and we plan on truly indulging come Sunday. Light some candles, draw yourself a bath, give yourself an at-home facial and enjoy your own company.
Netflix and Chill…Like Really
Sure, many of us have had a bit of time for real R&R, but if you’re not a huge Valentine’s day celebrant, enjoy a low-key Sunday. No fuss, and no muss. Wear your favourite tracks, throw your hair up into a bun, and may we suggest, dive into Netflix’s newest series: Crime Scene: The Vanishing At The Cecil Hotel. If the eerie series isn’t your cup of tea, escape with one of our favourite historical romance novels.
Before full-time careers, live-in partners, owning homes, and multiple pets and children (if you’re into that sort of thing) there...
