So Valentine’s Day is around the corner (this week to be exact) and you find yourself single and lost in a sea of advertisements that glorify relationships and love. Don’t worry, you aren’t alone! I am in the same boat as you. So let’s ignore the endless ads that are being run and declare Valentine’s Day a Self-Love, Self-Care Day, where we are going to choose to pamper ourselves.
1. Treat yourself to a spa day:
Get your hair and nails done, a full body massage in any spa around Kenya. If you are in Mombasa, I would suggest the spa located in English Point Called "Anusi Spa" and also the one at White sands. If you can’t afford a spa day, you can have one in your own home, all you need is to buy a couple of scented candles, Sheet masks from Fletna and play some soothing music and relax.
2. Take yourself on a movie date:
Of late there have been some amazing movies that are released and maybe you have not gone to the cinema’s any time lately. Take the time to go watch a movie and don’t bootleg it.
3. Take yourself for a lunch or dinner:
Apart from the movie date, grab a meal from that restaurant you have always wanted to try, but have found excuses to why you haven’t tired it yet. If you are in Mombasa try the food at Skipper’s Deck (Former Ilcovo) and Big Square. They both serve some amazing food.
If you’re in Mombasa, I suggest these couple of places :
a.) Skipper’s Deck
b.) AJ’s Bar and Grill
c.) English Point’s The Deck
d.) Lido; located in White Sands
These places have beautiful views of the ocean and the sunset although Aj’s and English Point have the perfect view of the sunset.
4. Have a mini shopping day:
Buy those shoes or dress you have been wanting to buy and you are waiting for an excuse to buy them so you can wear them out. Treating yourself as an excuse. Since this day falls on a Friday, it is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a couple of cocktails and enjoy sundowner offers.
So treat yourself with Fletna Skincare, because we want you to love more of yourself this Valentine!❤️
