Did You Know…
That at San Antonio Zoo’s “Cry Me a Cockroach” fundraiser, you can name a cockroach after your ex which will be fed to an animal on Valentine’s Day? If your ex was a snake, name a rat after him instead. 😉
Get Ready for a Safe and Sexy Solo Date at Home this Valentine’s Day
Sometimes being single on Valentine’s Day is like being sick in the middle of your Hawaii vacation (true story) or being gluten free at the hottest bakery in town. Seriously?! But, just because you are single on Valentine’s Day, the time of year that celebrates love birds, does not mean that the day has to suck.
You can still enjoy the day being single and I’m going to show you how! So, here are 9 steps to enjoying the perfect solo date on Valentine’s Day. Let’s put ourselves first for a change.
Because guess what girly? You don’t need anyone but your own sweet, sweet company to enjoy Valentine’s Day. Sometimes, the best celebration is with ourselves. It’s time for some “me time”.
You Should Know…
This solo date requires a little bit of prep so stay with me here.
You’ll dress up yourself, your dinner table, your bath, and your bed for one “ooh la la” heck of a time. But don’t worry, I’ve also given you quickie options for everything from food (order in) to nails (press on & gel strips).
You should be able to look your best, eat your best, feel your best while running your empire. 😉 Alright, now here’s how it’s gonna go down this Valentine’s Day. Follow me!
Step by Step Guide on How to Spend Valentine’s Day Single:
What to Buy and Prepare
Step 1: Morning Of, Set Your Day Off Right
Every day when I wake up, I have a morning ritual. I wake up my stiff body and give it a little stretch. Then, say something positive out loud to myself. It sets my day off to an amazing start.
So, whether you’re sad about being alone on Valentine’s Day or COVID wrecked your romantic plans, no crying girl!
Instead, wake up, have some tea, a bite of chocolate, light a candle and say a positive affirmation out loud. Something like: “Today, I’m going to have a special Valentine’s Day with myself”.
Then, give yourself a hug. I know that sounds weird but do it, trust me. I do it too and it totally works. It’s a self-fulfilled prophecy and I swear by it!
As I talk about in my New Year’s blog, self care is so important. What does it look like for you?
Step 2: The Food & Drinks
You know all those foodie cravings you usually have? Let’s take it to the next level and make it Valentine’s Day themed. Heart arranged, shades of pink and red… all that over the top, girly, “extra” stuff.
What’s on the Valentine’s Day Menu?
Don’t be afraid to brain dump your ideas. Lay it out on a vision board or create a cutesy Valentine’s Day menu if it helps you plan better.
For those running the kitchen show, I share dinner and dessert recipe options. I also share ways to get food, snacks, desserts & alcohol delivered if you prefer to relax and let someone else do all the work. It’s your day queen… 😉
Whether you want to cook and bake something or order in, your girl Geeves here has no shortage of options for you to choose from.
♡ Cook Dinner at Home
Good news! There are so many ways to put a cutesy VDay spin on your favorite recipes by plating your dish!
Plating your meal can take a dish from yummy to over the top especially when there’s a good theme! So fun! It’s as simple as piping sauce in the shape of a heart or forming the rice in a heart-shaped bowl or cookie cutter.
Feeling spontaneous? Try a themed Valentine’s recipe.
♡ Bake Dessert at Home
Okay, I’m all for themes but these desserts take it to the next level. Here are some desserts whether you’re a broken hearted or happy singleton.
- Dessert for the Angry
“You broke my heart bitch”
You’re totally entitled to bake a “You Broke My Heart Smash Cake” and stab it to death like Taylor Swift did in Blank Space. You do you girl.
Or take less violent measures, hammer a chocolate heart instead. 😉
- Dessert for the Sad
“Chocolate is the only one who loves me”
Heal your broken heart instead with a Broken Heart Chocolate Cake.
- Dessert for the Happy
“Single and lovin it!”
Happy singletons can just plate any of those desserts with rose petals and self-love. 😊

Step 5: Set the Scene
Dinner Table Decor for Valentine’s Day
♡ Set the Table
Set your dinner table in style with Valentine’s Day linens and heart accents such as plates and napkin rings. It’s the little details that make the difference!
Step 6: Get Dolled Up
You don’t need a man (or woman) to dress up for. This is our solo date after all. And we want to look, smell, and feel amazing. Your solo girl’s date is all about pampering yourself.
♡ Time to look and feel your best!
Start by taking a nice, hot, steamy shower. Maybe put on a nice face mask… Always does the trick for me. 😉
You know that cute dress you’ve been saving but haven’t had a date to wear it to? Now’s the time! Wear it just for you beautiful.
Spritz some perfume… something that makes you feel how you want to feel…. sexy, beautiful, strong.
What’s a scent that makes me feel powerful? Cleopatra by Tocca… I always get so many compliments (from both men and women). It’s seriously mesmerizing!
The amazing thing about Tocca is that they embrace female individuality and encourage women to love themselves. Their intoxicating line of perfumes helps us to do that.
Just like us, each scent is unique and named after women. Each perfume reflects her life, style, and one-of-a-kind desires, dares, and dreams. It’s basically your essence wrapped up in a bottle. Find one that speaks to your personality.
Their perfumes are beautifully bottled and packaged and chic. Try a perfume sampler to find your signature scent. Or, try a new one each of your moods every day. 😉
Your Special Evening
You look good, feel good. Now it’s time to set the scene and enjoy your evening!
Set the table with a nice table runner and cloth napkins… put out the flowers, light a candle..
This is your time. Enjoy your own company however you like it best. Because you are the best. And deserve the best. Even if you’re giving it to yourself. No one can make you feel better in this moment than you.
Have dinner while watching a romantic movie… or screw romance, watch something funny.. and silly like Mean Girls or Clueless… girl dramas are always fun.
Step 7: Bath Time
Now, you’re about to get settled in for the night… Here’s how to make the cutest bubble bath for some you time!
♡ The Perfect Bath
Step 1: Turn on some music… whatever sets the mood right… jazz always does it for me… “Alexa, play Chet Baker radio on Pandora“.
Step 2: Light a few candles, throw a bath bomb in, and get your cute booty in that tub.
Step 3: Pour yourself another cocktail or, some yummy hot cocoa. Pair it with the cutest dessert charcuterie board.
Detox from the inside out: Soak in an emotional martini detox while drinking a martini
Bathtub Sweets & Bubbly
What are you craving for your bathtime dessert buffet?
You know… those high-cal snacks you usually reserve for PMS. The “top shelf” goodies.
I know what you’re thinking… but I just mentioned dessert! Yes, but that was dessert after dinner. What about bathtime dessert? What’s a bath without a lil something sweet and a lil something bubbly?
After your bath, light some more candles (you can never have too many IMO). And lather up with a yummy body butter all over… feel your silky smooth skin…
You’re so gorgeous, girl!
Step 8: Slip into Something Sensational Tonight
Now, put something on that reflects how you want to feel.. don’t know bout you babe but sexy night wear totally does that for me…
Don’t wait to feel cute and sexy and love your life without someone to appreciate it. Do it for you. Just for you.
What’s Your Night Time Mood?
Wanna feel sexy?
Put on a plush robe and velvety slippers.
Wanna feel cutesy?
Adorable jammies and socks.
Wanna rock what your mama gave ya?
Go au naturel. Let the girls hang free.
You do you babe… which brings me to…
Step 9: Feel Amazing

You’ve had a yummy meal, you’re relaxed and smell amazing, your skin is glowing, time to get in the mood…
