Whether you’re in a complicated situationship, madly in love, or VERY single, there’s no better time to treat yourself than on Valentine’s Day. From the lingerie to the chocolate and candles – forget love, it’s a holiday of indulgence, and I plan on taking full advantage of it.
My go-to this Valentine’s Day is new lingerie. After throwing out most of my underwear draw this past week, I’m giving myself full permission to go crazy. I feel like lingerie is the best thing to splurge on since you get the most ahem bang for your buck. Seriously though, until my clear out, I still had pieces from 2013 in there. Not cute.
I’ll be celebrating Valentine’s Day this year the way I always do: with friends, good wine and yummy food. Dining out in Auckland can rival a competitive sport (especially since Covid), so there’s no way I’ll be venturing near a restaurant. There’s no reason to anyway – the weather has been amazing lately, it would be a shame to be stuck inside. If there’s one thing that last year taught me, it was to enjoy being able to leave the house while you can. Who thought there would ever be a time where that’s not an option to us? I certainly didn’t.
