Red rose, pink hearts and Love Heart sweets are all around us. It can only mean one thing! There are only a few days left until Valentine’s Day. For some of us, even the thought of Valentine’s Day can send us into a panic. Sometimes, even when you’re in a relationship. So, rather than getting caught up in the hype that is Valentine’s Day (although it may be a guilty pleasure!) here’s a few things that you can do this Wednesday evening. Although it’s just another weeknight, it’s the perfect excuse to treat yourself and spend some time just for you. No romcoms or teddy bears here!
What better excuse to get all the gals together? Either chill together with a takeaway, book a table in your favourite restaurant or check out these budget-friendly date nights. Chances are you’ll spend the night laughing away.
Pancake batter left to chill in the fridge overnight is always nicer! Instead of celebrating Valentine’s Day, celebrate Pancake Tuesday two days in a row instead! After all, it would be a shame for that leftover pancake batter to go to waste.
Chill with Netflix
Sometimes, there’ nothing better than having full control over the remote (or the mouse) and getting lost in your favourite series. Whether it be Grey’s Anatomy or Game of Thrones, enjoy your favourite with zero guilt and zero interruptions!
Book a Well-Deserved Holiday
Although we’re well on our way to spring, there’s still that Irish chill in the air! What better way to forget about the chilly weather than to book a fabulous, sunny holiday? Treat yourself, it’s well deserved after all! If a holiday isn’t on your horizons, get planning instead. Decide when and where you want to go, and plan what needs be around it.
Go for the Full Works
Face mask? Check. Leave in conditioner? Check. Fresh bed sheets? Check. Spend an evening just for you this Wednesday. Go for the full works and pamper yourself. Think of how fresh and fabulous you’ll feel!
Love red roses? Buy a bouquet to brighten your sitting room! Fancy a new piece of jewellery? Go for it. Had your eye on a perfume? Treat yourself to the things you want, just because you can. They’ll bring a smile to your face every time!
