Just like this picture,I am guessing some if not all of you are not ready for valentines.Worry not,I am going to break down some impromptu ideas that could amp up your day cause you deserve it.A dreaded day,a day to look forward to or just a normal day!There is no doubt that Valentines is channeled differently among us.You might be in a happy relationship and you still have no idea on how to make this hallmark holiday special for your loved one,you might be embracing the single life but most of your friends won’t be around because they have someone so you aren’t sure what to do on this day,you might just see this as a normal day and carry on with your business but everywhere you go,the daunting lovey dovey couples all over and people selling flowers and chocolates will constantly remind you that “This is not a normal day”.So it’s in your best interest to put in some effort and make it special not just for someone else but also yourself.Here are some of the impromptu things to do on Valentines.
EAT:Something off your nom nom,try out sea food,go to a new restaurant (which reminds me),(“Eat out”)have amazing offers for couples so download the EAT OUT app and get on with it.
CALL:your other single friends and have a small party,play board games,go for lunch or dinner and celebrate being single.Call your parents for a date or enjoy your siblings company.
Drink:Some grande cocktails at Newscafe or Art cafe,drink some delicious caramel macchiato frappe at big square or their Sangria.Go for that happy hour after a long day..
DONATE:Clothes you no longer wear,food and toys to the needy.Spread your love to the less fortunate because they will also feel appreciated.
REFLECT:On your relationships,whether with your partner,friends or family.Are you in good terms with everyone you consider a loved one?if no,this can be a day to reconnect,buy them a gift,surprise them for a drink!Do something…
VISIT:A spa with your girlfriends,go for zip lining or car racing with the boys.Visit a new town,plan a get away to Naivasha.Just visit a new locale…..
WATCH:Black Panther.It is probably the most anticipated move this month so why not go with the hype and watch it?Watch An entire series.Yes,I mean binge-watch your favorite shows (kenyan shows on showmax or Funny youtube clips) with loved ones,have some wine,popcorn,do a picnic.Just have fun while at it…….
BUY:A new outfit,not necessarily for the day but a day like this comes with a lot of deals and sales,so take advantage.Spoil yourself.Get cool personalized gifts from (Timeless Gift shop at Garden city)for a loved one or Unique Gits at Two Rivers.Buy that bouquet of flowers and chocolate for her.It’s the only time you will walk around carrying them and she will unarguably feel special……
ENJOY:A good full course meal at restaurant like:;
