In this video, one thing Lewis Howes talks about is self-dating. As you know, I am the Queen of self-dating, I have been doing that for years! I often take myself to the cinema, and out for a meals too, when I have the money. Every February 14th, I celebrate being single on International Celebrate Being Single Day (that’s today), by going out on a self-date, this year however, I am going with a friend to Plymouth Aquarium and out for a meal, so it will be a very different day for me to not be doing that on my own, but it will be great to have some company and celebrate being single together!

How are you celebrating being single today? When was the last time you had a self-date? Please write in the comments below, I love to read you!

Until next time, Happy International Celebrate Being Single Day, lots of love and write soon,

INTERNATIONAL CELEBRATE BEING SINGLE DAY DOCUMENTARY: BRISTOL ZOO. This video took me over 6 months of learning IMovie and editing to create it. In this video I take you on my journey of my self-date for International Celebrate Being Single Day. From the moment I get to the train station, to going to the zoo, for food, and the cinema. I did create a shorter version of this without the mouse house that has tons of sound editing, but unfortunately a lot of my files went missing from that version. This version could have been 40 minutes originally so I did well to get it down to almost 24 minutes.

Thanks for all your 6 year blogging anniversary wishes, much appreciated. xx Hugs xx

Pre Celebration: International Celebrate Being Single Day

Blooming Good Flowers
These are my Celebrate Being Single flowers I bought myself
This is a picture of when I bought myself two bouquets of flowers in the supermarket
I loved the heart wrapping and couldn't resist the sparkly pink glitter heart on a stick - to keep forever.

I like to take the bull by the horns and lead by example. I also naturally love celebrating being single.

I hadn’t bought myself flowers for years, but I decided this year was going to be different.

So I went into my local Aldi store, which is fortunately just across the road from where I live. I was on a tight budget for the day itself; but thought I would start my International Celebrate Being Single Day celebration, slightly early, so bought myself two ‘pre celebration’ bouquets of flowers. I wanted to show my love for myself to make myself happy, and make myself smile,  before my self-date, on my big day.

To be honest I didn’t ‘need’ two; the first bouquet had 3 different coloured roses in it and roses are my favourite flowers. The second I bought because of the sparkly pink heart that is on a wooden stick and I can keep forever. I have a similar thing already, that is like a round bauble and a lighter shade of pink, and I love it so much. For a fleeting moment I thought about taking the heart out of another bouquet and placing it in my rose bouquet and thinking the cashier may not notice, but that would have been dishonest and I can’t do that. So I bought both and they made me smile so much. The white ones are still alive and well. The roses have schrivelled and almost died off, which is a little sad but I can always buy more if I want to.

I had a very fabulous and special International Celebrate Being Single Day, that I had been looking forward to, since October last year. I still haven’t edited the video clips together from that day – waiting for an iMovie lesson for that on the 7th of March. However, I took some photos, some of which I will share with you in my next post.

Big hugs and lots of love for you, stay quirky.
