How to Treat YOURSELF on Valentine's Day




 Happy Valentine's Day, ya lovebirds! I feel like V-Day is easily becoming one of my favorite days of the year. It's a day to appreciate your loved ones and to take today to appreciate YOURSELF! I love that Valentine's Day is now a time for self-love and positivity.This year, I have the night all to myself since I did my festivities in the afternoon! I thought, what can I do for the remainder of the night? I figured I'd slap together some things that would be fun to do to do for/by yourself this Valentine's Day! At least things I'll be doing ;)


Splurge on something you've been eyeing for awhile! Maybe a dress?




All the movies to make you sob (Secretly therapeutic)

Watch 50 First Dates, Forrest Gump, A Walk To Remember, The Wedding Singer, 13 Going On 30, Can't Buy Me Love, and I could go on. Doesn't have to be in that order particularly. Any movie that will make you cry, basically. Sometimes we all need a good cry ;-)



INDULGE!!

Make fudgy Brownies or be adventurous with my personal fav, Chocolate Covered Strawberries or Marshmallows! All you need is some melting chocolate, a tablespoon of coconut oil, marshmallows, strawberries and you're good to go! OR, if you opt for more savory than sweet, get something you wouldn't normally get, like some sushi. The specialty rolls. Cause treat. yoself.




Cheap & Easy Treat 'Yoself

 Treat yourself to a beautiful balloon bouquet! Not speaking from personal experience or anything...


Get pampered

Get your nails done, get a massage or both! Groupon has the best deals.

Enjoy Natural Beauty

Hit the beach (or any pretty place) to catch the sunset! Beaches are empty in the winter and have gorgeous sunsets!

Love for your soul & others

Perform a random act of kindness for someone else! A pay it forward at Starbucks, Write a nice valentine for a neighbor, or simply pay someone a compliment! It'll make you feel surprisingly good to give. You can make someone's day, too!

Spruce up your space with Florals

Freshen up your space by putting the flowers you received around the house, or simply buy yourself flowers! Trader Joe's has beautiful and inexpensive bouquets.


Reflect

Create a time capsule for yourself! I've actually done this. I know it sounds cheesy. But it is so fun to open one up in a certain amount of time to see where your head was at, and how far you've come since then! Write a letter to yourself and maybe an item you'll cherish years from now! To make it even cooler, put in a photo of you now along with it. You won't regret it.

Finally Use Your Audible Membership, Or Just Read

Read or listen that book you've been telling yourself to get around to, maybe accompanied by a nice bath, if that's your thing.


Appreciate Others

Some may not classify this as something to do to "treat yourself," and I can see why... BUT I think it's important to also show love to your people! Call to catch up with your Mom, Dad, whoever might appreciate a phone call on V-Day! Or make a friends appreciation post.


At the end of the day do what makes YOU happy! But no matter what, keep your heart filled with love! (I had to say SOMETHING mushy for a mushy holiday.)

Onwards and Upwards,
Kiana
