As you all know, I am single this Valentine's day. I'm not really bothered by this, as to me, Valentine's day isn't a day I really care about or give two thoughts about. Personally, I think you should show your love every day of the year, not just on one day. In my opinion it's just another commercialised day, which I guess is nothing too bad. I'm not saying I never celebrate it, or will never celebrate it, as I have in the past. I guess as I've gotten older, it just doesn't appeal to me that much, and kind of makes me cringe! Doesn't it you? (Or am I just being a cold-hearted witch?).
That being said, in the past I have had a few valentines, and celebrated Valentine's Day (hypocrite much eh?). Three years ago, I went to Paris with my boyfriend at the time on Valentine's day. It was such a lovely time away, and I can definitely see why Paris is the city of 'Love' and 'Romance'. I'd definitely go there again, for a romantic weekend away, so I'd definitely recommend it! Last Valentine's Day, I spent it in bed with a Chinese takeaway! Me and my (now ex) boyfriend had dinner reservations, but unfortunately the trains were cancelled. So, we decided on a candle lit dinner at my Uni desk and Netflix. To be honest, it was lovely. In a way, I'd much rather that, as it's more comfy, and you get to spend quality time with the person you care about the most! I'd take that over an awkward dinner any day!
I think the hardest thing people face (I know I do), is buying Valentines gifts. I mean, the shops are full of teddies, chocolates and flowers. I suppose it's just hard to get your other half something original and more personal? This is why I love the new 'Send your Heart' App By ASDA*. You can download it on Android OR iOS! It really does add a modern twist to Valentine's Day, and allows you to give a gift to your loved one, that is 100% personal to them and you. The app allows you to send your own heartbeat to your partner, in it's own special message. How cool is that?! All you have to do is press your finger over the camera lens, and it records your heart beat. Then, the app sets it to romantic piece of music, and Bob's your Uncle, your personalised valentine's present is complete. I'll definitely be sending this to a few of my girlfriends for a bit of a laugh! I think it's a funny yet cute twist to Valentine's Day, don't you?
