A Diva’s Valentine Theme…

In Daily Musings on February 14, 2012 at 9:39 am

I dedicate to all of you single Divas out there, this Valentine’s Day as the official Treat Your Inner Diva Day. whether it’s a mani/pedi, new lingerie, a gorgeous scented candle, a bottle of bubbly or all of the above, celebrate YOU! Don’t let the commercialization of this “pretend” holiday, make you feel less than you are.  Today is a day where some women, may feel a little down because they don’t have anyone “special” in their lives or are looking to someone to make them feel special today and then start an argument when they don’t deliver. DON’T!

Don’t wait for someone else to make you feel worthy, make yourself feel special because you are!  You’re A Diva!  Leave your office/cubicle right now, go to Starbucks and buy that Venti White Chocolate Latte, you never buy because you’re on a never-ending diet, trust me you’ll feel good! 

Celebrate your fabulousness, celebrate YOU!  Buy yourself some flowers (although exorbitantly overpriced), better yet buy them tomorrow where they’ll be back to normal prices and everyone one is kicking themselves for buying  a dozen roses for $100 and you only paid $25 at Whole Foods (plus theirs would have started wilting)!  Take a bath, add something nice to it, put on your high heels and something floaty, pour a glass of bubbly, order some take-out, then cue the music (I’m feeling Bruno Mars right now, don’t play anything too sentimental, depression is not the goal here, how about “I’m Every Woman” by Chaka Khan?).  Perch yourself delicately on your sofa, cross your legs and be fabulous in your own living room.  Celebrate the Wonderful, Gorgeous ,God Given YOU!

If you have some girlfriends who are also unattached, get a group together and go and have a cocktail somewhere, make as much noise as possible to interrupt the so-called smoochy lovers (I do not usually advocate being loud, but hey it’s Valentines day, just don’t blame me if you get thrown out!).  Whatever you do, DO NOT sit around feeling sorry for yourself, it’s a commercial holiday, get over it.  The special person in your life is YOU!  And if you do have someone significant, cherish that person every single day, not just today, because you want a gift and a nice meal, so you can brag about it tomorrow.  Make every day  in your relationship a beautiful day, make every day about Love.

Here’s something cute from Google

Dahhlings… Always Remember, You Are Special!

Here’s a recipe for one of my favourite cocktails, called a  Kir Royale  – a cocktail fit for a Queen… Enjoy!

Champagne * Chambord Liqueur (or if your strapped for cash try Mr. Boston Raspberry liqueur, $6) *  Raspberries, Champagne Flute

Place a Champagne flute in the freezer for 15 minutes. Remove and add 1 tablespoon Chambord to each flute and a few raspberries. Fill each flute to the top with Champagne and serve immediately – Cheers!

Happy Valentines day!
