Well, like it or not, it’s here. My social media feeds are full of loved-up couples sharing romantic weekend plans, middle-aged couples planning on staying in and not making a big deal of it, (But who will be livid if there is no breakfast in bed) and annoyed single friends, who could do without being reminded they are single, thank you very much!
There is abject horror from some that, as Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday, it means that the festival of love and commerce has morphed into a WHOLE weekend of expense and expectation.
The last time Valentine’s day fell on a Sunday was in 2010 when social media hadn’t hit the masses in quite the same way as now. Today, everything is amplified; whether it be Twitter, FB, Instagram, Snapchat, Pintrest or whatever your favourite channels are. There’s simply no escaping it.
So, in that case, you may as well make the most of it. Eat chocolate, drink fizzy wine and make yourself feel nice just for the sake of feeling nice. Whether you are going for all the schmalz in a big way and diving into a romantic weekend, having a quiet night or two in, partying with friends to forget all about it, watching back to back boxsets on Netflix, or something in between – why don’t you make it a weekend about loving yourself and treating yourself? Remember, we are here to look after you! If you fancy a spontaneous facial, massage, wet-shave or new hairdo, then try booking with us. You’ll only get really good, high quality professionals, who have been vetted by us and our friends.
Here’s a selection of what some of our salons and therapists have been up to:
We wish you a good weekend, however you spend it!
