The single girl's guide to Valentine's Day
Couples kissing in public? Vom.
Flowers delivered to the office? Seriously, what a show-off.
Arriving home to a giant box of chocolates? Enjoy, fatty.
These are the kind of thoughts that may cross your mind when flying solo on Valentine’s Day. And it’s not because you’re “jealous” or “lonely” – you just think it’s a bit ridiculous that people feel the need to profess their love in public. Like, get a room, would you?
And if you're not getting a room, this is how to really enjoy Valentine’s Day – single style.
#1 Be smugly satisfied with the extra cash in your pocket. But still get into the gift-giving spirit by sending all your favourite gals an e-card they’ll truly appreciate.
#2 Wear your favourite bright lip colour. All the taken girls who aren’t allowed to kiss their man while wearing lippy will be well jel. (Copy Tay Tay's hot pink pout with COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lipstick in Spellbound)
#3 When somebody in the office asks what you’re doing on V-Day night, smirk and reply with, “none of your business”. They’ll assume it’s something thrilling, when in fact it’s just you sitting at home, drinking wine and singing along to Spotify.
#4 Garlic prawns, garlic mushrooms, garlic bread – nothing is off limits for dinner. #winning
#5 And if you order pizza, tip the delivery man. That way you’ll both know who to really feel sorry for.
#6 Layer on the face mask, hair mask, and fake tan. Nobody is around to see you marinate – and get glowier by the minute. (Try this winning trio: Shu Uemura Art of Hair Silk Bloom Treatment, Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask and Sunescape Hydrating Self-Tan Mousse.)
#7 Watch as many episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians as you please, pausing at appropriate moments to try and recreate their make-up looks on yourself.
#8 Why try to satisfy somebody else’s needs when you can have ten times the pleasure and none of the pressure with some good old ‘me time’? The Andracova G-spot parcel is how a girl truly treats herself on V-Day.
#9 Put on your comfiest panties, spread out across your bed and enjoy the best and roomiest sleep of your life.
Are you single this Valentine’s Day? How do you plan on celebrating?
