  • Have a spa day, relax and focus on self care. Do face masks and paint your nails.Focus on looking good for YOU. 

  • Spend time with your girls (I bet you’re not the only one of your friends who is valentine-less).

  • Take yourself on a date! It’s nothing wrong with having alone time and getting to know yourself. 

  • Get yourself presents! Use this time as YOU time.

  • Watch romantic movies (this may make you a little sad, but I love a good love story regardless of it being valentine’s day) (I recommend “To all the boys I’ve ever loved 2”)

  • MOST OF ALL: Don’t ever feel like you HAVE to have a valentine.We are all independent women and men should be waiting at our feet. Never settle! If he can’t see how great you are and how lucky he is to have you, he doesn’t deserve you.
