We know it’s cliche’d but there’s something special about Valentine’s Day

While most will feel compelled to spend a fortune on hearts and flowers for lovers, how would you feel about taking a different approach this year?

My idea is for us to treat and pamper yourselves at any time during this month. Not in an egotistical or selfish way but with kindness and love. And it need not be on Valentine’s Day.

How about doing something we’ve always wanted to do but have never had a chance, like enrolling in a cooking- or yoga class? Let’s make a lunch reservation for one and just watch people go by. Or visit an art gallery or a play by ourselves. It can’t be that hard because if we don’t love ourselves, who will?

Of course, all these excursions need outfits with fabulous lingerie

Who cares if no-one else gets to see it. We know our secret and that is what makes us confident. And confidence is sexy.
