A Single Girl’s Guide to Valentine’s Day


With Valentine’s Day coming soon, love is definitely in the air. But, I believe that you do not have to have a boyfriend or a husband to celebrate this wonderful day. I absolutely love LOVE! And that’s why Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite days of the year!

For all you single ladies out there, valentine’s does not have to be the worst day of the year! It is not just for couples doing lovey-dovey things; it is for anyone who wants to celebrate LOVE with friends or family. You can even dedicate the day to yourself…make it a U-Day.

Here are just a couple of things I have done on V-Day to give you a few ideas.



Shop till you drop!

You know that shoe or bag that you saw in that store few days back, go to the mall and get it as a V-Day present for yourself! Buy chocolates or flowers or both! It’s nice to not have the stress of shopping for someone else, so go shopping for YOU and buy everything that makes you feel pretty!



A fun night in!

Who doesn’t love a good girl’s night! Dancing in pajamas, face-masking, watching rom-com movies, eating junk and drinking wine with your besties…I don’t think it gets better than this. Plus you are going to have so much fun; you will probably forget its Valentine’s Day!

For masking, I always recommend any mask from Peter Thomas Roth, GlamGlow or StarSkin; these brands are amazing and will get you feeling pretty in about 15 minutes. And as far as a romantic movie goes, I don’t think any movie can beat the cuteness and charm of Disney’s Lady and the Tramp!



Drunchin’ with my ladies

If you don’t want to sit at home, call your girlfriends and hit the town! Wear an outfit that makes you feel sexy and glamorous and grab some cocktails at any of the amazing Valentine/Ladies Nights happening on Tuesday in Dubai. My recommendation would be the Valentine’s ‘Singlez’ Party at Tribeca; amazing vibes, music, complimentary drinks and yummy food all in one place!

If you want to start the party early in the day, head to Blue Marlin Ibiza or Nikki Beach (don’t forget sunscreen!). Nikki Beach is having a fabulous Valentine’s Ladies Day by their pool, with sushi and bubbly for just AED125!








Above are just a few of the very exciting events all you single ladies can take advantage of this coming Tuesday! {Click on the event posters for more details}




Head to Dubai Parks and Resorts or IMG World and have a fun-filled day with your friends. Be it going on the battling Ultron with the Avengers, a rollercoaster at LegoLand, remaking Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara at Bollywood Parks or going on the Kung fu Panda ride at MotionGate; make sure you have a blast at these theme parks. And don’t forget to treat yourself to some cotton candy or buy your favorite stuff toy, so that you always remember this day as one filled with love and laughter!



Talise Spa at Burj Al Arab


Snow White mani/pedicure at SOH Dubai

There is nothing more relaxing than letting people pamper you. As I said, make this day about you…make it a U-Day! Book a spa day at the Talise Spa at Burj Al Arab or go for the Snow White manicure-pedicure at SOH Dubai! Spending the day treating yourself as lavishly as possible is the best way to remind yourself that you are awesome and you don’t need a guy to validate that.



Don’t forget to wear cute clothes while working out!

If you are a fitness freak like me, take this day to try a new gym class like Zumba at Dance Fit or a Barre Class at Physique 57 or even a Pole Fitness Class at Pole Fit! A-Tone Fitness Lounge is even offering free classes of pilates, yoga and more, everyday from now until Valentine’s Day; this includes giveaways and healthy treats for you and a plus one. Or simply head to your training like any other day. Either way, you will have that after-gym glow and look gorgeous by the end of it!


My final advice for all of you would be to be thankful! Valentine’s Day might be overwhelming if you’re single and you may want to sit home and eat ice-cream and do nothing, but honestly, it’s a day to celebrate all kinds of love! Whether it’s your family, friends, boyfriends, girlfriend, pets…show them how much you love them on this beautiful day! Send them cards, buy them gifts and make them feel special as well.

No matter what you’re plans are this Valentine’s Day (single or not), I am sending lots of LOVE your way! And if you are doing something exciting for V-Day, please make sure to let me know in the comments section below.

Love you all!
