    Just in the mood for some coffee? From February 12th-February 14th, bwe’ kafe is offering a special Valentine’s day espresso {“the cupid”} to celebrate the grand opening of their new location! We’re told it has sprinkles & Ghirardelli chocolate in it—woahhhhh! I love meeting up with my friends & hanging out in bwe’s lovely space while enjoying a delcious latte {and pastry of some sort}. It’s also a fabulous place to relax & get some work or reading done!!

    3. Visit an animal shelter!

    Direct your feelings of love towards the many animals that need it & visit a local shelter! Volunteer for the day or at the very least, stop by. Who knows…maybe you’ll fall in love & bring a sweet pup or cat home with you. Liberty Humane Society {located in Jersey City} is offering FREE adoptions until February 15th! 

    4. Give your wardrobe the update that it probably needs & go shopping.

    There are so many amazing shops in our humble town including Mint Market, Town House, Aaraa Accessories, Alba, Dear Hannah, & many, many more!   If you can’t find anything there, ladies, we live right outside of NEW YORK CITYya know, arguably the most desirable shopping destination in the country.

    5. Plan your next getaway.

    Though I adore Hoboken, I love a weekend getaway even more. Plan that trip to see your best friend or plan one that you’ll both go on. I recently used ‘Groupon Getaways‘ and had a fabulous experience!!

    6. Go dancing!

    This one’s self explanatorywho doesn’t have a good time on the dance floor?! GNO, for sure. 

    7. Horror Movie Marathon {Or sappy romance movies…your call}

    hoboken-girl-blog-yuck-gif

    There are some really, really bad romance movies out there that may make you laugh at the thought of love…at least for now. And if they don’t do the trick, some blood & gore are sure to take your mind off anything romantic.

    8. Take a fitness class.

    There’s nothing better than working out to get your mind off something & feel GOOD about yourself while doing so. I’m thinking either a yoga class to RELAX or perhaps a boxing class to beat the s*** out of something? Whichever you prefer! Click here for some of our fave fitness reviews.

    Whatever you decide to do for Valentine’s Day, remember you are not a leper…you are a GODDESS and should treat yourself as such until the right one comes along! All our love xo
