Newly Single? Don’t Fall Victim to the Valentine’s Day Blahs

When you’ve recently suffered from a breakup, there are few things worse than seeing happy couples and romance. The hearts, flowers and sickening sentiment of Valentine’s Day can almost make the whole situation even worse. But why stay at home, climb into a tub of ice cream and wallow in misery? This V-Day, instead of spending your hard-earned cash on someone who doesn’t appreciate it, you can spend it on making sure you have a great time. Gather up your single friends and make some plans. This could turn out to be the best V-Day yet.

Just because you don’t have a date for Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean the whole day is ruined. In fact, the pressure of V-Day is officially off your shoulders this year, meaning you don’t have to get presents, write cards or even go out for an expensive and crowded dinner. Instead, think about treating yourself. Getting a group of your single pals together can be equally, if not more fun than a date. Get your creative juices flowing and start dreaming up a great way to spend the day.

Liverpool Charities have a Surprise Visitor on Valentine’s Day

On Valentine’s Day, we often say ‘love is in the Air’ and that was exactly the case in Liverpool, albeit love of a different kind. Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge made a surprise visit to various charity organizations on Valentine’s Day. She visited the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald House, a home for parents of critically-ill children  and the The Brink Bar; a place for recovering alcoholics.

This is the Kate’s first public outing outside of London without her partner Prince William. Incidentally, he was 8000 miles away working as a RAF search and rescue pilot in Falklands; where he is posted at the moment for six weeks. In-spite of being unable to be together on such a romantic day, Prince William played his part as the doting husband to perfection. He sent some beautiful flowers and a card to greet his wife in the morning. The princess is making use of the available time to warm into the role of a working royal.

This Valentine’s Day, Go Green!

Millions celebrate this day with their loved ones by exchanging gifts, sending chocolates and flowers. But what they don’t notice is that, how much Mother Earth gets affected because of this seemingly harmless tradition.
