How to have a great Valentine's Day...When you're single

Within 2 weeks it's that time of the year again, where all the couples are enjoying their time together and all the singles... Yeah, basically, being single on Valentine's Day sucks when you don't know how to have a good time on your own (No, not that way... I mean... maybe... if you prefer :p). The best thing about being single is that you can do whatever you want and you don't have to think about you're other half. These are some of the favourite things I would love to do on Valentine's Day.

Morning: Have a GIANT pamper session

What better way to love yourself by treating yourself on a good pamper session. Righ after when you've woken up (which could be around 9, but 12 is fine as well), run yourself a nice, hot bath. Take your favourite bath stuff, and prepare yourself to have a relaxing time. 

For my bath, I like to use a bathbomb or bubble bar from Lush, the one you can see in the picture is Avobath
As an extra treat I also like to wear a face mask from time to time. The one I'm wearing in the picture is the Dead Sea Minerals Anti-Stress Mask from Freeman, a brand that promotes cruelty-free beauty BUT as I've recently found out, does get their ingredients from companies that DO test on animals. If you know any good cruelty-free skincare brands that aren't too expensive (and you can get them in Belgium), please let me know! 
Then I just do the usual body- and hair cleaning, I think we all know how to keep ourselves clean ;). 
To relax, I like to listen to music, read, or watch a good serie. All things that aren't a good idea to do in a bath so be careful!
After my bath I like to make myself look all fancy by putting on my favourite makeup and nailpolish and wear my 'sexiest' outfit on, because I can. 

Can we all just take a look at what I got for Christmas to do my nails with? It works really well, especially the last step really makes my nails shine, but when I first saw it, I thought it was something... different... It's the Velvet Smooth Electronic Nail Care System! :) (NE: je kan dit kopen in het Kruidvat) 

Afternoon: Be together with the people you love

Valentine's Day is the day of love, whether it's romantic love, or the beautiful relationship you share with your family and friends. It's a day to be grateful for all the love and happiness the people around you have given to you. 
This awesome pic comes from 
Here's a picture of me and my best friends from last year in Portugal (can you tell I love llamas?). What I like to do the most is inviting some friends and catch up while drinking some góód stuff. To me, being together and e.g. playing games (yep, I'm that kind of person) is much better than go partying and not being able to speak properly.

Evening: Watch your favourite movie/ Binge-watch your favourite serie

Something I love to do, is watching my favourite series in the evening. At the moment, I'm following a lot of series at the same time. The Vampire Diaries is the first serie I ever started to watch, even though it's not the best serie out of my list. I might do a top 3 of my favourite series to watch (and no, Prison Break, Game of Thrones nor Walking Dead are part of that, but I'm sure they're great series as well). 

If you recognize this picture of my favourite serie, I love you, you're awesome, and you deserve the best Valentine's Day EVER

My Favourite Snacks/Drinks: Tea, Hot Chocolate, Ice cream (duhh!), Pop Corn;Wild Organic Beauty has a great recipe on coconut popcorn; you can find it here.

I wish you all a great Valentine's Day, love may just be lurking around the corner. What do you do to fight the single-blues on Valentine's Day? Let me know in the comments! :)
