Valentine’s Day is coming up, and whether you’ve just started dating or have been together for many years, it’s always fun to celebrate your love and treat yourself… But getting ready can be super stressful! We’ve got 5 tips for you to make this night special and stress-free!
Plan in advance
Unless you’re more of a “let’s decide last minute” couple, make sure to plan in advance, especially since Valentine’s Day is a busy night for restaurants, hotels and other romantic spots. Make your reservations in advance and confirm the night before. You don’t want to end up eating at McDonald’s because your favorite Italian place “doesn’t have your name on the list”! Same for your outfit, shoes and handbag: if you’re going out that night, go shopping a couple of days before, instead of going last minute on your lunch break with a sandwich in one hand and your cellphone in the other. Finding an outfit that makes you feel beautiful, confident and sexy takes time… and, let’s be honest, a lot of work!
Smooth things out
No matter if you’re going bare or natural, time to take care of things “down there”. We know, we know, it’s winter, and your significant other probably doesn’t care about what your bikini zone looks like… But sometimes, the work (and pain!) is worth it! Whether you’re a wax or razor kind of girl, make sure to get grooming a couple days before V-Day to avoid redness and irritation on the special night, and stock up on all-natural soothing product to make everything soft and smooth.
Find your hair and makeup looks
Now you have an excuse to spend a couple of hours on Pinterest! You don’t need to put a lot of work into your beauty look if that’s not what you’re into; our point simply is that sometimes, it’s fun to take things to the next level. If you’re never wearing makeup, maybe a touch of mascara could be nice. If you always leave your hair wavy, a loose braid could be a perfectly romantic look. Your hair is short? Drawing your eyebrows could bring definition to your face. You’re an eyeliner addict? Switch it up and try a red lipstick! In other words, have fun with your look!
Set the mood
Ready for your “happy ending”? Transform your bedroom into a love bubble!

Choose the perfect lingerie pieces
If you’ve always wanted to try sexy lingerie or if you’re looking for an excuse to buy a new set, Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion! Depending on your personal taste, your budget and your style, you might want to splurge on a very sexy set, or go for pieces that you can wear everyday, with boyfriend jeans or a blazer, for example.
