Hey PopStylers!!! In the spirit of this day, I should say Happy Valentine’s Day…. but I don’t actually celebrate the holiday. (But I would if Channing Tatum asked me… whew yes LAWD!!) Ever since I was little I was never really into the whole idea of Valentine’s Day. Yes I cut out the heart shapes and gave my friends valentine cards from the dollar store. And YES my father gave me a dozen roses EVERY single year and a stuffed animal (He still does actually and Im a grown woman!!) My older brother is always the first one to call me and wish my Happy Valentine’s Day (now along with my nephew who called me this morning) and he even sent me flowers every year til I was out of graduate school. So it’s not because I haven’t experienced “love” on this day before. I just dont do Valentine’s Day so some reason. What I usually do on this day is….
- Buy myself something I want (perfume, new shoes,a bra)
- Wear a nice outfit that is NOT red, pink, purple, or white (too commercial)
- Cook a nice meal I’ve been wanting for a while (usually a pasta dish like Lasagna, Baked Ziti, or this year’s Shrimp and Spinach Fettuccine Alfredo)
- Listen to my “I Don’t Do V-Day” music playlist. Some of the tracks are:
Celebrate love however and with whomever you would like. As for myself… I Don’t Do V-Day. Enjoy the tracks, listen, sing along, and save them for next year. And til next time keep it #PopStyle!!
