Things I’d Like To Do This Valentines Day (By Myself)

Photograph by dangzit.

While I agree that Valentines Day is a schmaltzy holiday full of tacky teddies and wilting roses, that doesn’t stop me wanting to celebrate. Alone. For and by myself.

This year, I'd like to:


• Try my hand at a raw vegan rose cheesecake.

• Wear fresh red lipstick all day and kiss windows.

• Make a playlist full of romantic classics like “The Scratch” by 7 Year Bitch.

• Buy myself hot pink flowers.

• Keep my fingers crossed that it rains so I can run out and play in the rain in a 1940’s bathing suit.

• Make lingerie from pieces of silk that I keep hoarding and never use.

• Make antique-style valentines with text saying things like, “you’re okay, I guess”, and “please don’t ever wear clothes again”. You know, sentimental stuff.

• If I were a little more bitter around this time of year, I’d get these gorgeous fripperies. I might anyway.

And keep your eyes peeled for a guest post at Yes and Yes, written by this little Pony, about taking yourself on dates (and, naturally, what to wear while on them)!

Thanks Michelle! You should - you deserve lots of flowers!

Eyeliah - We must be the only people in the world to think of 7 year bitch as romantic songwriters!?
