5 Things You Should Never Do On Valentines Day.

14 Feb

1. Be a sour cynic.

But it’s so commercial, so American, so expensive, so stressful, so lame, so overdone you might say? People, it’s just for one day. Grinches don’t like Christmas, Cinderella might not like Mother’s Day but you know what? At the stroke of midnight whatever day it is, it’s over with a poof of magic dust and then it’s another calendar day. Or the same day on the other side of the world!

2. Think it’s only a day for loved-up couples.

Love is universal. Love is for singles, pets, children, the environment and couples. If you are looking for love and you feel it overly highlights your singledom, then read unique love stories to renew your hope, then go out and kick up your heels and be open to sinful desserts and guilty pleasures.

If you are single and happy, Valentine’s Day is an awesome excuse to treat and spoil yourself.

  • Book yourself in for a massage.
  • Eat your favourite food.
  • Unwrap your best, high cacao content chocolate.
  • Order a book you’ve had on your wish list for ages.
  • Catch a movie.
  • Or implement a random act of kindness like giving muesli bars to a homeless person.

A love cake for The Wolf

Something that I like to do on Valentines Day is to create a theme and an atmosphere that sets the day apart from any other day.

This year I’m going for a fairytale theme and here are my questions: Continue reading

Fun Friday.

Fun Friday

For date night I made a new kind of cake, adapting my carrot cake recipe to a rhubarb and ginger cake and I invited some crazy guests to join us.

Magic At Every Turn.

14 Dec

Ancient fairytales continue to weave their magic and surprise and delight us, even in these modern times. If we want love to spring forward from the depths and splash its way through our lifetime of love we need to invite in loads of little sparks of spontaneity. Unpredictably breathes new life into boring routines. There is always magic waiting. It hides around corners we never knew existed. In order to experience wonder and blissful moments we have to be open to them. We need to embrace the unknown, leave time and room in our schedules for last minute invitations, and follow cravings, desires and whims when they hit. Who doesn’t want to have wishes filled and true love fulfilled?  Spontaneity doesn’t just happen; we have to make it happen.

  2. Praise your beloved out loud, to their face and in front of others.
  3. Be conscious, attentive and interested in their hopes, dreams and conversations.
  4. Always communicate respectfully.
  5. Be considerate. Think about what you say and do before you say or do it.
  6. Create opportunities to giggle. Laughter is a wonderful love potion.
  7. Take time to treasure each other without distraction and exhaustion.
  8. Get off the couch, turn off the television and computer and get out of the house and if you can, get out of town (which sparks the libido even thinking about it.)
  9. Greet each other with a compliment, be affectionate and be grateful.
  10.  Inject fun into each and every day.
