Here is post for those who are not excited for Valentine’s: A Valentine’s Survival Kit! Dun dun duuun!! I’ve been through many a February the 14th without a Valentine *sniff sniff* while people around me were going out, getting excited, buying gifts etc, this year however, I have a Valentine but I still know what it’s like to not. Because of this I thought I would put together a few things that have helped me get through Valentine’s Day up until now, (other than the half price chocolate that can be bought from the 15th onwards!) Now I would say that having a girly sleepover would completely take your mind off it, but there is the chance that they will be out with their significant others so another way is needed.
Pick Out Your Favourite Films – I am a massive Disney fan I like every Disney film I have seen, (except Frozen, I’m sorry, I really am,) so my list starts off with three of my favourites, in order: The Little Mermaid, Lion King and Finding Nemo. These three are amazing, are they not, I may be able to recite them all word for word but that is in no way going to stop me watching them again.
Sweet Treats – You can’t watch films without bad food, and the food and drink I have found is just gorgeous. Now Hotel Chocolat may be known first and foremost for chocolates but their hot chocolate is divine. If you’ve ever had their chocolate, their hot chocolate is basically that but shredded and heated up with milk and I have never had a nicer shop bought hot chocolate. Next is these little bags of chocolates by Thorntons. You can get most of the chocolates they do in these little bags so you can have a bag of your favourites, even better than that is that they are 2 for £5! If you prefer the more savoury foods, popcorn is always a winner; salt, sweet, toffee, I love them all so much and what’s a movie without popcorn?
Pamper Yourself – Who doesn’t deserve to pamper themselves once in a while? You’ve got the Disney films and you’ve got the yummy food, why not the soft, sweet smelling skin too? Personally I love pampering myself. First off a face mask has to be used; my current favourite is Superdrug’s own Superfruits Exfoliating Mask, not only does this smell so good it also leaves my skin soft and free of dry skin. I would also have a bath with a Lush bubble bar – the Comforter – my favourite and best loved bubble bar ever. It smells like blackcurrant and turns the bath a beautiful pink colour, ideal for sitting in whilst your face mask is doing its thing! What’s a bath without candles, Yankee Candles of course, there are few others that live up to their high standards. My favourite Yankee Candle has to be… Mango Peach Salsa, it’s fruity, it’s bright and is an instant pick me up in my books. The final steps of my pampering regime are moisturising; The Body Shop Mango Body Butter wins hands down, and also a lip scrub, (Lush Bubblegum, obviously,) I hate having dry, flaky lips, especially if my skin is feeling flawless.
Comfortable Viewing – It doesn’t feel like a spa without a dressing gown, and if I’m pampering myself I want it to feel as much like a spa as possible. I found this fluffy purple dressing gown and fell in love. Dressing gowns are my favourite thing ever they always keep you warm, like a hug. Although your dressing gown is like a hug I still love the good old fashioned water bottle to keep me warm. Another comfortable nightwear option is this boohoo.com short onesie. Now I’ve never been a onesie person but this one might convert me. The thing that makes me like this is that it isn’t basically an adults baby grow, it’s more shorts and hoodie rolled into one.
Now you know how I survive Valentine’s Day when I’m on my own, hopefully you might be able to use some of my ideas to make your Feb 14th bearable, do you have any tips on how to survive? Anything you would add to my survival kit?
