Happy Valentines Day! Yep, it’s that time of year again, the one night everyone goes crazy to create the perfect romantic moment. While the retail aisles are filled with chocolates, roses and teddy bears, the restaurants are gearing up to customize a menu you probably already tried and marking up the prices because everyone knows this is the one time of the year you can’t forget or screw up. Today I’m sharing my love for my new brand Unleash Your Pretty. I will be sharing and promoting my journey for self-care, tips, and tricks for taking care of yourself. To get started I will be sharing with you some simple quick tips to plan a romantic night in.
KISS: Keep It Simple Stupid
This isn’t rocket science people, Keep It Simple. You have to understand your significant other in order to plan something special. Being that I am not interested in waiting hours to eat nor feel like cooking my next best option would be to order some take out. Not just any chain restaurant something local that has character, takes pride in preparation and using real ingredients. Review their menu online, contact them to see if they are running a special menu and place your order before the rush that way you can be in/out. In my opinion, the service at home will be much more satisfactory then dealing with the hustle and bustle of a restaurant. Once your home go ahead and get fancy with it; break out your best china, champagne glasses and set the table. Throw on a few old school slow jams while you’re making the plates and chilling the champagne.
Have A Fun Activity Planned
A fun activity can help you decompress and have a few good laughs after dinner. So what’s a delicious dinner without dessert? Instead of ordering those expensive chocolate covered strawberries; why not get in the kitchen and make them together. They are super easy to make and only require a few ingredients that you may already have in your pantry. Since my pantry is always stocked here is what I used below:
- Nestle Toll House Milk Chocolate Morsels
- Nestle Toll House Premier White Morsels
- Bamboo Skewers
- Two Mixing Bowls
- Piping Bags
With just a few ingredients and a little bit of couple teamwork we were able to enjoy our treats together.
Enjoy Some Much Needed Wind Down Time
Now it’s time to wind it down and let the meal digest. Remember you ordered take out so don’t worry about the dishes, throw those little plates in the sink turn down the lights and snuggle in for the evening. You made it through! No forgetful servers, no long wait times or expensive bills. Time spent with each other…..priceless. What better way to wind down then lighting a few candles and drawing a nice hot bubble bath. Might I suggest French Kiss Soy Wax Massage Candle, part of the Unleash Your Pretty Luxury Candle Collection. This product will be available for purchase soon so make sure to favor the shop to know when new products arrive. This candle will entice your senses and doubles as a moisturizing massage made with real ingredients like Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil this will most certainly seal the night with a kiss.
Keeping it simple, adding some fun activities and winding down your evening is really all it takes. You have all year long to find the perfect gift or make reservations at your favorite spot don’t wait till February 14 to plan a romantic night in.
