Ladies, it is Valentine’s Day in nine days and I don’t care if you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day, Single’s Awareness Day, or all three, let’s make this an excuse to buy something pink and pretty and eat sugar (and yes, I’m aware this outfit is listed as beige online, but it’s a beige with pink undertones and if this doesn’t scream Valentine’s Day to you, then I don’t know what does.)
But seriously, even when I was painfully aware of my singledom on past February 14ths, I always enjoyed Valentine’s Day because it’s an excuse to do something nice for yourself and to eat dessert in copious amounts.
While it’s been a while since I’ve had a single Valentine’s Day, Dave and I are still fairly low key about the whole ordeal. Pre-pandemic times, we made it a point to go to a nice steakhouse on Valentine’s Day (give me all da red meat) and he’d send over a nice floral arrangement to my apartment. Frankly, I have no idea what we’re doing this year, but I do know that I’ll take any excuse to dress up, go nowhere, and eat cookies.
For those of you who are interested in my makeup routine to jazz up your Valentine’s day face, check out my Instagram stories highlights for all my favorite products. I’ll be posting a full face makeup tutorial soon, so stay tuned!
So this Valentine’s Day, whether you’re celebrating in a traditional way or by dressing up and eating cookies on your kitchen counter, make sure you’re treating yourself to whatever the f*** you want because it’s been a hard year and we need any excuse to celebrate existing.
Also, in case Dave is reading this – my favorite chocolate is still a tie between Ferrero Rocher and Godiva.
