A single girl’s guide for feeling sexy this Valentines day!

So, in all of the past three years whilst writing this blog, I have never had a man to call my own on Valentines day… crazy huh?  The last time I spent Valentines day with a boyfriend I must have been 19 (pretty sure we spent it eating pot noodles, big bars of chocolate and watching films – perfect in my eyes, ha!).  So I have never, ever written a blog post about valentines day.
This year, yes, I am still single (but perfectly happy with that, I’m actually quite enjoying myself!) I have decided to dedicate vday to the most important person in my life – me!  I have chosen a few little things that will perk me up and make me feel special, sexy and gorgeous on the day!

In my life there are four things that make me feel on top of the world, they are – sexy lingerie, perfume, a good lipstick and of course chocolate!
First up, I’ll be wearing either one of my new fabulous (and incredibly sexy) bra’s from Simply Beach.  On vday itself I’ll most likely be seeing my favourite ever girlfriends after work for some cocktail fun, but knowing that I’m wearing irresistible underwear under my clothes will definitely make me feel confident and cheeky.  These two bras were super affordable (around £20 each) and of high quality.  The purple one (link)  is by Elle Macpherson and I absolutely adore it - it looks great against my super pale skin.  Whilst browsing the Simply Beach site I realised that Elle Macpherson has some beautiful pieces of lingerie available, I’d recommend checking them out (here!)!  The black lace bra (here) has become my new favourite cleavage inducing bra (I’m favouring it over my wonderbra’s at the mo!). 
Perfume is a ridiculously easy way to feel mysterious, dark and confident, depending on finding the right scent for you.  There’s no room for anything too sweet or fruity on vday - if you want to feel sexy, go the full hog and find something which screams sophistication and glamour.  I adore Estee Lauder’s Sensous perfume which is woody, warm and sophisticated, containing notes of warm amber, pepper, sandalwood, honey and jasmine.  If Sensous smells too mature for you, you can’t go wrong with one of my favourite perfumes, Miss Dior Cherie.  This fragrance starts of sweet and fresh with citrus notes, when then develops into floral, then into elegance with patchouli and musk.  I find this a really easy perfume to wear.
A slick of red lippie always makes me feel attractive and sexy so I’ll be reaching for either shade #10 or #15 in the new Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipsticks (full swatches here).  Finally, you can’t beat a bit of chocolate to make you happy!  I prefer galaxy so will definitely be indulging in one of these on the day.
I know this post is slightly different to the ones I usually do but I enjoyed writing it!  Hope it inspired ‘alllll ma singlleee laddiess’ to join in on the quest to feel sexy with me this Vday. 
What will you be doing on Valentines Day?  What makes you feel sexy?

EDIT: I spoke too soon, I now have a date for Vday…!

  1. The purple bra is gorgeous. The key to feeling sexy isn't what other people see, it's how you make yourself feel! Great post. (Throw in a bottle of champagne and then it will be perfect!)

  6. You're amazing Katie! I'm single too, and since I'll be on holiday for the first time in a long time, I guess I could treat myself to a trip to the nearest city :) And eat chocolate on the train haha! xx

  9. yeah, never had a boyfriend, so don't know what that's like at all! oh well, i've never really bashed valentine's day but i don't adore it either. I'm trying to think of things that make me feel on top of the world and i'm drawing a blank. i never remember to put on perfume though, so that one's out!

    1. Awh Julia, you don't need a boyf to enjoy Vday. Light some candles, have a nice relaxing bath, listen to some music and read some magazines whilst nibbling on chocolate and you will feel on top of the world!
      I always forget to put perfume on too, just need to get into the habit of it! x

  19. Ahh, galaxy bars are perfect for valentines day! I also like to have a nice scented candle in my room for Vday. And I agree, sexy and nice fitting lingerie is the key!

  21. Really nice post. I am engaged and we don't do valentines day (My choice as much as his, he's not some romance dampening ogre, in fact quite the opposite ) but I think it's really important for people, be it men or women, to remind themselves of things that make themselves feel happier, confident and maybe even a bit sexy lol - I think this post is important to singles And those with someone, all year round - Nothing wrong with a little confidence boosting self indulgence from time to time =D

  24. Hope your have a good time. I really like the Estee Lauder fragrance.
    I'm married and we don't even 'do' valentines day.
    Never a fan of someone or a day forcing me to be romantic.

    However, i shall make a point of lighting my smelly candles and pampering myself. Any excuse!
    I shall then hot foot it to bed and pretend to be asleep ;-) None of that martial unpleasantness, oh no! haha
