A Single Girls Guide to Valentines Day Part 1

It's that time of year again where those of us who haven't been bitten by the love bug have the potential to be left crying into our family sized bar of galaxy. But is that such a bad thing?
Lazy days

We all spend so much time interacting with each other these days, be that through taking photos of every meal we eat and posting them on Instagram, tweeting about anything and everything, or heaven forbid actually having a conversation with someone in person! Isn't it nice to sometimes just have some time to yourself? So why not use Valentine's day as an opportunity to stay tucked up at home.

There is a very simple combination for a perfect night in.

1) Cosy lounge wear- There is a time and a place for sophisticated lounge wear, this is not it! Wear your baggiest jogging bottom and sweatshirt combo and embrace the messy top knot!
2) Trashy films- The choice is yours, you can go ultimate chick flick and do a Bridget Jones marathon, or you can chose something altogether more thought provoking and pro "girl power" like The Help.
3) ALL OF THE JUNK FOOD!- I don't think I need to elaborate on this one. But, bare in mind if you order take out food, you are going to have to answer the door in the above lounge wear, so you better hope Ryan Gosling is not on delivery duties that night. Be prepared with snacks if you want to avoid this!

If spending the evening alone sounds all too traumatic, invite your single gal pals along for the fun, perfect excuse for a sleepover and it's not even on a school night so you can up the anti and have a cocktail...or three!

In my opinion Valentines day is the perfect time to celebrate being single and allowing yourself to be selfish for once. Use it as an opportunity to treat yourself to all the things you usually neglect and give yourself a pamper. Why not even buy yourself some flowers?

Before I come across as too much of a man hater, my next post will be talking about exactly the opposite of a cosy night in. If you plan on hitting the town with the girls to meet some fellow singles, keep your eye out for part 2!

How are you guys planning on spending your valentines day, single or taken, I'd love to hear what you have planned!
