The Unofficial Single Ladies Guide to Owning Valentine’s Day
As you may know, that dreaded day for singles is right around the corner, aka Valentine’s Day. However, why should you miss out on the fun just because you don’t have a S.O? We encourage you to make this holiday your own, and celebrate all the love in your life. Whether you just got out of a relationship, or if you’ve just never had a serious relationship that carried over to ye olde February 14th, here are some ways to make your Valentine’s Day amazing:
Go on a Winery Trip with the Girls
Instead of trying to get a reservation on the 14th at a restaurant packed with couples, why not plan a fun trip to a local winery on Saturday or Sunday with your girlfriends? If weather permits, starting the day with a walk on a scenic trail and packing a picnic style lunch could also be fun. Bonding with your friends over some Cabernet will make you forget all about your relationship status, we promise!
Scary Movie Night...yes, you read that right!
Why not do something radically different from what everyone else does for Valentine’s Day and host a scary movie night? These movies are completely unromantic and off the traditional theme, which makes them perfect. We recommend horror movies featuring a strong female lead such as Silence of the Lambs, Alien, The Craft, or It Follows. We recommend pairing your horror movies with pizza and your favorite red wine. You’ll be surprised by how awesome the night ends up being!
Treat Yourself to a Day at the Spa
Who doesn’t love an indulgent day at the spa? Practice some radical self love and book yourself a massage, mani, pedi, facial, whatever your heart desires! Since Valentine’s Day is all about love, spend the day loving yourself. It makes perfect sense! After all, you have no one to please but your own self, so might as well go all out!
Ultimately, we think Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating love in its various forms - love for yourself, love for your fur babies, and love for your family and friends! Romantic love is just one kind of love, and while we are big fans of it, we know we can survive without it. After all, girls run the world! We’ve also got our serious relationship with wine that makes everything nice and peachy. There may not even be room for a bae...we’ll see. :) There is always room though for sassy, fun glassware that fits your drink of choice and your personality at Drinking Divas.
