    SINGLE ON VALENTINE'S DAY

    I’M WEARING; DRESS: ASOS   SHOES: ZARA   BAG: MANGO   RING: PANDORA
    As much of many of us (single or not) may try our hardest to, there’s just no getting away from the commercial cliché, which is Valentine’s Day. I’ve never really been in a relationship and so I’ve always been single on Valentine’s Day, so I’ve definitely mastered the art of being single on the day, which is heavily focused on couples. So, if like me, and many others, you’re finding yourself single on what is actually, just another day, I thought I’d share how I’m most likely going to be spending the day.

    | SPEND IT WITH YOUR GALS OR GUYS
    If there’s a group of your friends who are single, just spend it with each other and have a great time going out for a meal, going clubbing or just staying in and enjoying each other’s company whilst watching a film or some trashy TV programmes I don’t get a chance to do it often, but when I do, I love spending time with my friends, even if it’s talking about complete and utter nonsense. This time last year, I worked all day and then went to the cinema with a friend to see Fifty Shades, because why on earth not?!

    | TREAT YOURSELF
    Like I said, Valentine’s Day is just another opportunity for brands to sell you a shed load of chocolates and huge teddy bears that you quite frankly, don’t want, need nor have space for. That being said, some people are a little more extravagant with their gift and I personally love to use Valentine’s Day as an excuse to treat myself. Last year, I bought myself a something small from Louis Vuitton and the year before I bought myself a couple of rings from Pandora. In my mind I justify it by saying that I don’t have anyone else to buy something for, and there’s no one to get me anything (obviously Valentine’s Day and love isn’t about gifts, but hang on here) so I just get myself something.

    | FOCUS ON SELF CARE
    This is probably the most important thing that should be practiced whether you’re in a relationship or not and 24/7, all 365 days of the year. Self-care can come in so many different forms and is subjective to the individual. This may be having a nice hot bath with a Lush bath bomb, sitting in bed and reading a book, meditating, whatever floats your boat. I tend to love an evening full to the brim of pamper prep. This is everything from washing my hair, doing my nails, doing a face mask and having a lovely hot bath whilst watching a bit of Netflix.

    How are you spending Valentine’s Day?
