The Single Girl’s Guide to Surviving Valentine’s Day

“How you love yourself is how you teach others to love you”
Rupi Kaur

Hello! Welcome back to The Jade blog. All the single ladies, all the single ladies…(in Beyonce’s voice) I have been single for a while now and I must say that these ‘single’ years have been my best years ever. And Valentine’s day also have been as glamourous to me as always. Not every single person find Valentine’s day as glamourous as myself.  I know that some people get so wrapped up in the whole idea of Valentine’s Day, raving about the fact that they are “alone,” and sometimes, end up sitting or curled up in bed all day wallowing in self pity. But why? Why should Valentine’s Day be any different from your happy normal day? Here’s are some tips for my single ladies on surviving valentine’s day:


I’m all about pampering myself anytime I get the chance to, and valentine’s day is one of the best days to be extra with self pampering. you could go for full body massage or do your pedicure and manicure, or even be like me; sit back at home, put on a face mask,wrap up my hair, get a chilled glass of my favourite wine and watch any good ol English movie I can find (Ok.. I feel like I’m exposing my dramatic self lol) you can also treat yourself to see a movie alone ( who knows, you could just find Mr Right.)

chocolate for valentine


If you know me personally,then you know that my weakness is CHOCOLATE! What better time is there to eat chocolates like Valentine’s Day. My single Ladies, write a lovely appreciation note to yourself and buy a box of Chocolate or Candy (for the sweet toothed) to relax at the end of the day.


Note that it could also a Lunch Date with your gal pals. You can go to your favourite fun park or Restaurant. you can also go play some games; paint balling, fun fairs, or even indoor fun games like; scrabble, monopoly, ludo e.t.c.


If you are a Series/Tv Shows Lover, then this TV show marathon thingy is definitely for you. I have this mini list of series you could watch , and they are: Friends, Parks and Recreation, The Office, Fresh off the Boat, Sons of Anarchy, Scrub, Law and Order: Special Victim Unit, Freaks and Geeks, Criminal Minds, Fringe, The 100. You can also click “Netflix Series to watch” or “Trending Series to Watch” for more series to binge watch.

 flowers for valentine

Buy Yourself Flowers

My best Flowers are PEONIES, PEONIES and more PEONIES! What are your best flowers? Why not treat yourself to a beautiful bouquet of your best flowers and live in the moment.

wine for valentine


Wine Oh Wine.I always love me a nice round glass of Wine garnished with a slice of Lemon or Pineapple.  This right here is Heaven to Me, especially if it’s Red. So if you are a Wine Lover like me, then Get that bottle of wine, sip on it and watch a fun movie or even listen to your best playlist. You Deserve it! Remember to DRINK RESPONSIBLY!

Just Another Day

If you are still feeling “singlely”, Remember that Valentine’s Day is Just another Day. Go ahead, spread Love and  Show Love to all(especially the less privileged)


Happy Valentine’s Day. Keep Spreading LOVE.
