Need Solutions Quik For Valentine’s day?
If you fall into any of these categories then this is a must-read article for you:
- You woke up at the last minute thinking it is hopeless there is no way you could pull off a romantic Valentine’s celebration.
- Your purse strings are so tight after overindulging during the December holidays from which you are still recovering.
- You are a mom and possibly working too and you overwhelmed and celebrating Valentine’s Day does not feel like it fits into your busy schedule, where your kids take priority.
Team Beauty Warriors have put on their thinking caps and come up with a well-coordinated Valentine’s at-home strategy that won’t break the bank.
For décor at home or Valentine’s gift, swop exorbitantly priced flowers for romantic potted plants like miniature roses, orchids, jasmine, lavender or succulents, can be bought at most supermarkets. As an added bonus, they will continue to flourish a lot longer that cut flowers – perhaps a better gesture to symbolise your relationship.
Start the day with a surprise love note in your partner’s lunch-box. You can do one for each of your kids as well and cut out their sandwiches in heart shapes. Let them join in and write out letters to each member of the family that they can read out at dinner.
Set the tone with a mushy or not so mushy text message, take your pick:
Send a screen shot of the food your ordered to be delivered to that someone special’s workplace accompanied with…’Happy Valentine’s, Mr D is on its way with your Hut Double from Pizza Hut with extra olives – thinking of your tummy too’. End it off with a few winking emoji’s.
Or… ‘I want to say that the best decision I made was choosing you, but I would be lying if I say it was any choice at all Happy Valentine’s!’
Let’s get into it; now that we got the décor and set the tone, the meal doesn’t need to be the stressful part. What if we told you that you can have dinner and dessert for under R150? Yip, shop from Woolworths and, it feeds four https://www.woolworths.co.za/content/article/w-today/dinner-and-dessert-for-under-r150/_/A-cmp209153 . Also check out your local favourite dinner place, they may have great specials on takeout’s for that evening.
After dinner, create a spa bath at home. For this you can purchase Spalicious candles at R350 each https://spalicious.co.za/product-category/candles/ which double as a massage medium too if you are feeling extra romantic. Alternatively, Africology’s scented candles are R430
A budget-friendly choice would be Soy Lites Balance mini collection from just R30 each https://www.soylites.co.za/products/balance-mini-travel-lites-15ml.
Next up, a luxurious bubble or therapy bath our picks are Phytomer Oligomer Wellbeing bath that eases away sore and tight muscles R466 or Elimis Aching Muscle Super Soak R945 which has energizing and uplifting extracts that releases tension and stress too.
To make this spa bath special have a bowl of strawberries, a bottle of sparkly or mix up a sensational Roses Cordials cocktail/mocktails.
We all about giving back to yourself this month so don’t forget to spend a few minutes on yourself, give yourself a body scrub for that satin skin feel, a face mask for a skin glow and take time to massage your feet when applying cream or give yourself a mini pedicure.
