7 Ways To Treat Your Single Self This Valentine's Day

Celebrate who you are and show a little (or a lot of, preferably) love to yourself!

The day is coming up, folks. If you're single this Valentine's Day, don't worry—there's nothing wrong with that! In fact, it's better because you're saving money by not purchasing any items for your significant other. Sounds like a great deal to me.

If you're single this Valentine's Day, treat yourself! Celebrate who you are and show a little (or a lot of, preferably) love to yourself!

If you're single this Valentine's Day, here are seven cheap and easy ways to relax and make yourself feel loved!

1. Bubble bath

For all the bath lovers out there, this one's for you. Grab your favorite sweet-smelling bubbly soap, your TV tray filled with popcorn and M&Ms, and light a few candles! Treat yourself to a bath and leave feeling refreshed and loved.

2. Buy yourself flowers

What's better than planning ahead a few days, ordering a beautiful arrangement of your favorite flowers, writing yourself a kick-ass note full of love and having them delivered to you at your work place or home?

4. Learn or try something new

5. Compliment yourself

Loving yourself is hard to do nowadays, thanks to social media controlling our idea of having 'perfect bodies' and 'perfect lives'. There's no such thing as either and as soon as one can learn that, the better! Love yourself for who you are, because you're amazing.

Craft idea:

Head to your local Walmart and purchase mason jars and some red, pink, and white paint. Go home and decorate the mason jar with vibrant colors. While waiting for the paint to dry, write down 20-30 things you love about yourself!

After the paint has dried, place your sheets of things you love about you inside the jar and shake!

Come back to this jar often throughout Valentine's Day and remember to celebrate you.

6. Get together with friends

Who said Valentine's Day needed to be about significant others? It's a day of love! Celebrate the relationships you have - whether it be with your parents, your children, your pet, or your close friends!

Some ideas:

- Get together with friends and see a popular movie

- Enjoy a picnic in your favorite park complete with your favorite drinks, snacks, and games - either by yourself, your friends, or your pup!

- Bake some delicious treats, watch your favorite TV show, and chow down after they've cooled off! Valentine's Day was created as a national cheat day, right?

- Enjoy a day filled with shopping and treating yourself to your favorite restaurant and that new pair of boots you've been looking at for weeks!

7. Spend time outside

Take a walk around the neighborhood and take notice of the objects you don't normally have time to observe. Was that tree always right there? What color is the sky? What favorite memories come to your mind about living here? A breath of fresh air, while reflecting on the small things always does some good.

I hope everyone's Valentine's Day is special this year - regardless of how you spend it whether it be with your significant other, your best friend, your co-workers, or your cat. The last one sounds just fine with me!

Today's society is so focused on whether or not you have someone special to share this day with, but there's nothing wrong with taking time for yourself and realizing how special you are without the help of a significant other.

Remember to love yourself and celebrate who you are this Valentine's Day.

To The Girl Who Isn't Graduating On Time, It Won't Feel Any Less Amazing When You Do

Graduating is something to be proud of no matter how long it takes you.


To the girl who isn't graduating college "on time,"

I promise, you will get there eventually, and you will walk across that graduation stage with the biggest smile on your face.

You may have a different journey than the people you grew up with, and that is OKAY. You may have some twists and turns along the way, a few too many major changes, a life change, you may have taken most of a semester off to try to figure your life out, and you're doing the best you can.

Your family and your friends don't think less of you or your accomplishments, they are proud of your determination to get your degree.

They are proud of the woman you are becoming. They don't think of you as a failure or as someone any less awesome than you are. You're getting your degree, you're making moves towards your dreams and the life that you have always wanted, so please stop beating yourself up while you see people graduating college on time and getting a job or buying a car.

Your time will come, you just keep doing what you need to do in order to get on that graduation stage.

Your path is set out for you, and you will get there with time but also with patience. The place you're at right now is where you are supposed to be. You are going to thrive and you are going to be the best version of you when you graduate and start looking for a company that you will be proud to work for. Don't look on social media and feel less than, because at least you're still working towards your degree that you are finally passionate about. You will be prepared. You will be ready once the time comes and you cross the stage, move away, and start your journey in whatever field you're going into.

Don't question yourself, and be confident in your abilities.

With love,

A girl who isn't graduating on time

Goodbye School, Hello Real World

I'm ready for ya!


It's starting to hit me.

I've been in school, year after year, since kindergarten. Maybe even pre-school!

Now, I'm about to graduate with my bachelors in communication and I couldn't be more proud of myself. I'll say it. I often sugarcoat it or suppress it but d*mn it. I'm going to applaud myself. It was hard work. It took a lot of motivation, determination, (caffeine), and willpower to get to where I am today. I worked my ass off.

That being said, I can't help but think... What is life without due dates? What is life like without scrambling to turn in an assignment that's due at 11:59 PM? What is life like with actual sleep? Sleep? I don't know her.

Like I keep telling my boyfriend and my parents, I don't have it all figured out. At least not right now. But I will, and I'm in no rush to land my dream job right now. If anything, I want to take a year to myself. I want to travel. I want to sleep in if I d*mn well please! I want to read as many books as I want. I want to write till my fingers fall off (OK, maybe not that).

You get the jist.

I'm free. I can do and be whatever I want. And you know what? That's terrifying.

I'm lost. I've followed this structure for so long. Now what?

I don't have all the answers yet. But for now, at least right at this very moment, I'm so thankful to have been able to receive such an amazing education. And to be able to say I'm graduating with my bachelors in communication at 21 is an accomplishment in itself.
