Fuzzy house robe — La Vie en Rose
Sleep dress — Victoria’s Secret
In my family, we always celebrate Valentine’s Day like another special holiday — a day to share with your loved ones, including relatives, friends, and partners. To us, it’s more than just about romantic love. It’s a celebration of love in all its forms and all the things that come with it: laughing, eating, and sharing memories. My parents and grandma and I would always exchange cards, chocolates, flowers, and get some fun takeout to enjoy our day of love.
But this year, for the first time in literally ever, I’ll be spending Valentine’s Day solo. Not just because I’m now single for the first time in five years, but also because my mom (with whom I’d normally spend a fun shopping day on Valentine’s Day) is away in the Philippines for the month. So I’m using Valentine’s Day 2017 as the perfect solo day for self-love. A day for some mental and physical calmness, on top of indulging on some of my favourite treats.
What’s my Valentine’s Day outfit look like this year? It’s this super-comfy chenille / french terry house robe and sleep dress — perfect for a quiet evening in.
I spotted this incredibly fuzzy robe at La Vie en Rose during the holidays and it found it really hard to leave it on the rack. My sweet mom took note of my interest in it and surprised me with it on Christmas.
It’s thick and blissfully soft, which makes it ideal for a relaxing day around the house. Bonus: it’s got pockets!
Of course, a treat-yourself Valentine’s Day isn’t complete with a heavenly bath. These Lush bath bombs are going to make for one luxurious and tranquil soak. Light some candles, put on some Night Beds, and bring in a plate of delicious salami (this is optional, obvi) and you’re set!
Finally, after a soothing bath, I’ll be cozying up on the couch with my main squeeze. You may know him by the name Netflix 😉
What’s your favourite romantic movie to watch? Even though The Holiday is technically a Christmas movie, it nails the single girl feels so well (“You’re supposed to be the leading lady of your own life, for God’s sake!”) that it’s exactly what the soul needs on a day like Valentine’s Day.

Enjoy your day of love, my friends! ❤️
