Happy Valentines Day!!~ S
When you mention Valentines day to most of us, the first thing that pops into mind are those massive red heart shaped boxes filled with chocolates that you so crave but then after you eat you regret, long stemmed red roses that will wilt and ruin the bottom of your nice vase, a cheap teddy bear that sings the words "I Love You" or "Be Mine" making you smile and love at first but loath by the end of the week, candle lite dinners and cute game of footsie and a charming diamond necklace all leading into an evening of lust... Or so goes the Valentines day stereotype is at least!
Guys hate this holiday in particular not because cupids arch nemesis shot them with a holiday antidote to cupids love arrows I can assure you! But rather because its another day girls treat just like their birthday and worse! So lets try removing the pressure to conform and make today just as much about them! Go out of your way to make his day that much easier, I love Valentine’s Day because its just another excuse to surprise people and make them feel loved!
The color scheme of this romantic holiday makes for the perfect bouquet of gorgeous flowers (Guy tip: While Red Roses are B.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l, they are expected. I would suggest surprising your special someone with a bouquet of her favorite flowers). Beautiful desserts, candle lit dinners and the most elegant date night outfits. So, for those of you heading out tonight let your seductive side shine through. Mixing vibrant pinks with bold reds is a surefire way to make a statement, or the more girlie side come out to play and try combining pale shades of pink with crisp whites to create a whimsically amorous feel!
Today is about making people feel special and loved! If you don't have time, make it! Take a few minutes out of your busy day to put a smile on their face. Run a hot bath, cook a simple dinner or even order take out chinese food and put in their favorite movie. Make today memorable!
