Ok this is not really a beauty or makeup haul – it’s more like an overall collection of the must-do things on Valentines. Well I know a large fraction of my friends are counting down to the V-day while a few of them find it terribly overrated. Like it or not, Valentine’s day is something you cannot overlook. Commercialised yes, but there is nothing wrong in celebrating a day for love. In our day to day hustle, many people forget to appreciate the loved ones in their lives. So this post is especially dedicated to my girl gang whom I love so much. You guys rock and this one’s for you.
1) DRESS UP FOR VALENTINES DAY

Yes, the Hard Rock Café has a grand event planned on Valentines – you will have luxury cars at your doorstep for pick up and drop you to special takeaways comprising of delicious chocolates and spa coupons. Doesn’t that sound exciting? Partnered by Pernod Ricard, Hard Rock Cafe will be offering two glasses of the finest Nine Hills wine to add to the perfect taste of Barbeque combo meal and a delicious dessert, as well as a Hard Rock Teddy Bear for Rs. 1800 plus taxes. And patrons who order one large Ballantines Finest (BAF) with one Large Absolut or one large BAF with a glass of Jacob’s Creek wine will receive a special Satya Paul ‘Him & Her’ gift hamper! One lucky couple will also receive a two-night stay at Oberi Udaivilas as a gift from Pernod Ricard.
Still not sure what to do on Valentine’s Day? I say either you give her a full-body massage or, better yet, reserve a double massage for him and her. You should both take some time off and enjoy some relaxation together. Any kind of spa getaway is perfect for Valentine’s Day. Check out my Four Fountain Spa review.
And if you are a Bollywood movie buff like me, grab the tickets for Gunday right NOW! Travel back to the 70s with some action packed romance in this Priyanka–Ranveer–Arjun starrer. The songs are catchy and it possibly has all the right ingredients to cook up a masala blockbuster. For now, enjoy the tang tang tang tang ….
Alright guys so once again wishing you all a Happy Valentines Day! Apart from the above, I’d urge you to do something nice for your mom and dad, grandparents, siblings and friends. Do something special for someone who just went through a breakup. Take them out on a friendly date and treat them nice, I mean any human being could do with a pick me up and showing of love. Till my next post!
