Happy Valentine’s Day Babes! I know we all jump for joy when holidays fall on weekends, but realistically we know more times than not they fall on weekdays. Since Valentine’s Day is on a Tuesday I decided to come up with a casual look for you lovelies. Can you ever go wrong with a white top and jeans? Absolutely not! This top is perfect for a date on Lover’s Day. The sleeves give it just the right amount of drama to make it date night approved! I paired it with some comfy, distressed jeans from Forever21 Plus. As cliché as it is, I had to add some red to this look. These red bow heels are my favorite right now, even though I can’t walk in them, but beauty is pain, right? Since Valentine’s Day has fallen on a weekday, I’ve been trying to think of ways to celebrate after pulling an 8 hour day at work. Check out a few of my ideas below!
1. Send flowers
This one never gets old! Flowers are a sure fire way to put a smile on someone’s face. Every woman loves to look up from their desk, and see the florist’s delivery guy coming their way with a beautiful array of flowers. Whether its roses or tulips, flowers always makes you feel loved and appreciated.
2. Cook His/Her favorite meal or Order takeout.
After being at work all day the last thing I want to do is fight the crowds at restaurants. Instead of going through the hustle and bustle, hit the grocery store and prepare your Beau’s favorite meal, or order takeout and pick it up on the way home. Feel free to go all out by setting the table, lighting a candle, and popping open a bottle of wine!
No need to explain this one. Most of us spend so much time on our phones and tablets we don’t pay enough attention to what really matters. Lets switch it up tonight and block out the world. Give your Love your undivided attention for the evening. No phone calls, no Instagram, no tweeting, just you two enjoying each other’s company!
4. At Home Spa/ Pamper
After pulling a grueling 8 hour work day what would be better than a spa night at home? On your lunch break run to the store and pick up some bubble bath, massage oils, and aromatherapy candles. After dinner surprise your Boo with a hot bubble bath with his/her favorite slow jams playing in the background. End the evening with a massage and I’m sure you’ll wake up the next day de-stressed and relaxed!
5. Express your love through art and crafts, a video, or handwritten card.
Valentine’s Day is about showing appreciation for those you love and what better way to do that, than to make something from your heart! The first year my boyfriend and I were together I wrote him a letter on a poster board and replaced some of the words with real candy bars like, You are my “Almond Joy” and Being with you is better than a “Pay Day”. 3 years later and he still has it. This year I made a video telling him all the things I love about him. Personalized gifts go a long way.
Here’s the deal about Valentine’s Day: Valentine’s Day is a day to show love to whoever you love! Whether it’s the person you’re in relationship with, your best friends, or even your parents! Whoever it is celebrate them, and show them how much you love them! I hope you babes have a great day!
