This read is for those of you who are lucky enough to not have the obligation of going through the motions of Valentine’s Day with a significant other.
It’s no secret that Wendy’s not a fan of Valentine’s Day. Between the expensive dinners and marked up flowers, we can’t really blame her.
If you’re not hitched up for February 14th, you’re in luck. Here are ways to celebrate and save a lot of money this Valentine’s Day.
While everyone who is booed up is dropping a ton of money on an over priced meal, you can be luxuriating and taking some time for yourself. Give your mind, body, and soul a chance to delight in life’s simple pleasures. Draw a hot bubble bath, put on a face mask, and listen to your favorite tunes or read a book. When you’re done with your bath, throw on a robe and moisturize!
Hit Up the Best Restaurant
Now, we know what you might be thinking. “Why on EARTH would we go to a restaurant on Valentine’s Day?!” Honey, is there anything better than good food, good drinks, and good company? The answer is no. Pull a “Sex and the City” style outing with your other friends that are boycotting the observance of Valentine’s Day with a significant other. The best part is that you get to scope out all of the couples that are taking Valentine’s Day way too seriously and people watch all night. . Plus, you can split the bill a few ways, so you’re not dropping a ton of money.
Pretend You’re in Paris
Indulge in the finer things in life, like a night in Paris. When you can’t travel to Paris see the Eiffel Tower and eat delicious French sweets IRL, you bring Paris to you! Start by ordering some macarons from Dana’s Bakery.
These mouthwatering macarons ship nationwide, and will arrive at your door like they are fresh from the bakery. Dana’s has macs for Valentines Day, or create your own variety pack(s) if you can’t decide on which deliciously accurate flavor to choose from.
Dana’s flavor of the month is salted caramel cookie dough. It’s like they knew we were going to gorge on cookie dough, and made it boujee for us.
So grab your macs, pour some tea or pinot grigio (both of which pair perfectly with macarons by the way), and watch a movie that will bring you to Paris. We recommend “Le Divorce,” “The Devil Wears Prada,” or “Yves Saint Laurent” to name just a few.
