Valentine’s Day, a day dedicated to show love. Basically a day where people can show how well they can step their game up. However when you’ve adapted to a treat yourself lifestyle Valentine’s Day is just another day out of the 364/5 days to show love. Yes, I know I said treat yourself but all your loved ones should be shown love as well. Also all year round, not unimportant to mention. This doesn’t mean you have to slack on the self-love. You can’t take care of anyone properly if you’re not taking care of yourself. But what to do for Valentine’s Day when you have completely adapted to a treat yourself lifestyle?
How can you step your self-love game up? Well simple, do not conform to the masses. Instead of going big I went small. After all the loudest bells and whistles are found in the small details. For me it came down to three little details that would make my simple Valentine’s Day plans just a tad more special.
After all the loudest bells and whistles are found in the small details.
#1: There is one thing I always forget to do before getting ready for bed, which is turning on the heating. It’s winter so coming out of the shower into a warm room is a treat. I do turn it off once I’m in the room though. I’m just trying to have a little extra warmth not trying to create a sauna.
#2: Preload my movie. I used to do this all the time, but somehow somewhere in the midst of all my movie watching I stopped doing this wonderful thing for myself. So much so that I have gotten used to the little breaks and now use them to Usain Bolt my way to the kitchen for a refill of my snacks. Not this time though, this time I preloaded my movie👏🏽. (Notice how happy I am with this simple act!)
#3: I made sure my favorite pyjamas were washed, dried and ready to wear! Normally as soon as they are out of the washer they’re on my body the same night. Not this time. This time I used the power of patience to add a little extra shine to my Valentine’s Day. The shine of comfort.
I also placed my pyjama and blanket on the heater while I was in the shower. There’s nothing like slipping into warm clothes and then under a warm blanket to start off a great night of preloaded movie watching. Simplicity, it works.
Happy Valentine’s Day My Lovelies❤
