How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day if You Are Single?

tumblr_lyqwrkeuYT1qjnw0co1_500

We all at one point have been single on Valentine’s Day. You may or may not have a special someone in your life, however you can still celebrate Valentine’s Day.

This is a great time to give yourself lots of love because if you don’t love yourself and recognize your best attributes, no one will. Also if you have friends that are single, why not spend the day with them! Romantic love is not the only kind of love that exists. You love your friends, family, and yourself. So share the love you have with your family and friends this year!

Either way, here are a list of ideas that you can do for yourself:

  • Spa Day! Whether you go to a professional spa, or you buy a bunch of items to set up your own at home spa do it. Get a manicure, pedicure, heck get a massage. (I love massages).  Have them do your hair, makeup,etc. Go all out girl, you deserve it.
  • Buy Yourself Flowers. You can have the flowers sent to the office and special delivered for you. If people ask you who the flowers are from you can just say, “Someone Awesome.” You are awesome after all.If you feel self conscious about that you can just buy flowers and have them in your home. Just because it is Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate yourself
  • Movie Night! Whether you are having a horror or bad sci fi movie marathon. Have a movie night in with yourself.
  • Treat yourself to Dinner. If you are feeling bold and a little rebelious treat yourself to dinner. Yes by yourself. I won’t lie it is scary to eat by yourself and strange, but there is nothing wrong with it. You may be feeling awkward at first and this is totally understandable
  • Shopping Spree! Buy yourself something really nice. Since you don’t have to worry about buying for someone you love why not go on a shopping spree and buy something nice for yourself. I personally would love to get this Tiffany’s necklace for myself.

  • Go on a road trip out of town. Valentine’s Day is a weekend this year, so why not go to the beach if it is warm enough or go walking along a mountain trail. Heck take a trip into the city and check into a hotel room. Treat yourself you deserve it!
  • Host a party! Have a valentine’s day party with your single friends! You can all hang out, eat food, and exchange gifts!
  • Have fun! No matter what you do on Valentine’s Day have fun. It honestly doesn’t matter if you have someone on Valentine’s Day it is just an added bonus.

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Your Music Lover

62967-music-lover

Does your special someone love music? Are they are musician themselves?  Whether they plays instruments or they are just a lover of music, here are some non-traditional Valentine gifts that will mean more (and last longer) than the typical chocolate and flowers.

  • A collection of songs that remind you of them. Who wouldn’t want to have a personalized CD? Even though more and more people don’t buy CD’s anymore, I find it more personal than creating a playlist for them on your iTunes account. If they are into retro and you know they would love it, do a mix tape instead.

  • New Headphones. Whether or not they create music, your music lover will need good headphones. The BOSE quietcomfort headphones are great, my friend has a pair and she loves them. I love them and I want a pair for myself. Not only are they great for listening to music they are also great for canceling out background noise. If your valentine has a hard time sleeping because of all the background noise or your snore too much, this could help with that as well.

  • Concert Tickets. Whether they are into classical music or alternative, you would be guaranteeing them to take them on another date, a date just for them.  Have a couple of songs ready if you can. TicketmasterVivid Seats, and Stub Hub are some of the best options when it comes to buying tickets online.

  • Perform a song for them. Are you musically talented? Perform one of their favorite songs for them on Valentine’s Day.
  • Guitar Picks. I’m not talking the plastic ones, I’m talking about getting either really nice ones they can use for their guitar or impractical ones they can display.

  • Jewelry/Watch. Still not feeling the other ideas. Well a nice watch or a piece of jewelry never hurt, but to go with the music lover theme here are some examples below of what you could get for them.

    I enjoy this, I would definitely buy this for my boyfriend this year if I had a little more money. click the image to see the store.

  • Musical Wine Glasses. This is something I would want for myself personally. I love wine and I always wanted to make music with wine glasses.

I myself play the flute and sing, while my boyfriend plays the guitar and my family is just musical in general.  Are you a music lover yourself? Do you play an instrument? Let me know in the comments below!

Worst Superbowl Commercial of 2014

carmax-slow-clapNow is time to pick the  worse Superbowl Commercial of 2014.

Drumroll please….

….

….

Basically every car commercial. I seriously lost track of how many car commercials there were after the 10th one.  Was I the only one who was annoyed/irritated by the number of car commercials this year?

I did like the Romance Chevy one with the bull and the car commercial where they were working with cancer research was nice. That is really it though.

Please, next year, less car commercials. There were so many car commercials I actually didn’t want to buy a car and I have never owned a car before!

Which commercial did you think was the worst? Did you think there were way too many car commercials this year? Let me know in the comments!

Commercials that Should have Aired During The Superbowl

There were two ads that I wish to have seen during the Superbowl. One was banned and one would probably never make it to be considered.

1.) Daniel Defense Super Bowl Commercial

 

This commercial sparked a lot of controversary because anti gun acitivists don’t like it and pro gun activist do. While I am against violence, I am for defending oneself and having laws banning guns won’t stop bad people from getting them. I would want to have a chance at protecting myself from another person that has a gun.

 

2.) Proud to Be

 

Why do we continue to use Redskin as a mascot? First of all the term is an insult. Please spread the word. This is ridiculous, why can’t we just change the mascot to a different name (yes I know years of tradition, merchandise, etc. Well that excuse was used for everything else that’s wrong).

Superbowl 2014 Commercials That Pushed the Mark

KNXV_Cheerios_Super_Bowl_commercial_2014_20140202204733_320_240

The Superbowl commercials seem to push the mark when it comes to representation this year. I am really excited about this.

Also I want to show commercials that as a company they got it right,

  • Cheerios

    I love this commercial simply because there is representation of an interracial family. How awesome is that?

  • Coke

    America the Beautiful sung in different languages and showing the diversity in the United States. Awesome!

  • Duracell

    I love how showed someone who has a disability overcome it. I think it is great and will help encourage others to follow their dreams.

  • Goldieblox

    How cool is this! I had heard about this company a few months back, but the fact they were able to advertise at the Superbowl makes me happy. I hope their business grows.

  • Go Daddy  Puppet Company


    I was so happy about this. There was no girl being sexualized. It just focused on the fact that Go Daddy is a website that helps other people make their own websites.

  • Microsoft

    A father and a Former NFL Player living with ALS. Representing those with special needs once more!

Top 5 Favorite

5.) Danons Okios Greek Yogurt

4.) Budweiser Military Commercial

Anytime their is military recognition for the hard work they do, I am happy.

3.) Duracell Trust Your Power

I love this commercial because it shows someone who has risen to the challenges that life gave them and overcame them.

2.)Radioshack- The 80s Called

I could not stop laughing with this commercial. This was so creative. Reminded me of the Dominos commercial and how the commercial stated, “we don’t suck anymore.” I think it is great

1.) Puppy Love

Out of all the commercials, I thought this was so adorable, cute, and creative. I love how the horses basically free the puppy from the car and they bring their friend back home.
