Ahhh…Valentine’s Day. The time of the year when love is in the air, the birds are chirping and the common dilemma of date ideas often lingers in the air.
Thankfully, below are some unique date ides that will allow you to bid the mediocrity of Valentine’s Day farewell!
- EXPLORE YOUR CITY
GET LOST! Spend the night cruising in the car, listening to your favourite music and exploring places in your city that you’ve never been to before. Let time run away with you as you enjoy each other’s company amidst the concrete jungle of vibrancies, you know as home.
- ROOFTOP PICNIC
This unconventional approach to the romantic tradition is just the breath of fresh air you need. A rooftop picnic at sunset will take your Valentine’s Day to new heights (literally).
- COOK OFF
They say “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”, however, this Valentine’s Day you can turn the tables, by challenging him to make his way to yours. May the games begin!
- GO CAMPING
Nothing allows you to connect more with a someone than being encompassed by the beauty of nature. It allows you to escape the distractions of daily life and to retreat into a place of peace and tranquility.
- GAME/MOVIE NIGHT-IN
Popcorn, hot chocolate, board games and a good chick flick movie are all it takes to have a fun night in the comfort of your home!
Accessory statements seem to be bold everywhere this current season. With that in mind I thought it would be fitting to show you all how to make an eye-catching hairpiece of your own. This comb is rather simple to make and extremely useful in the accessorizing department so go ahead and get a little crafty if you will.
- If you are working with plastic leaves I would recommend using sandpaper to prepare the leaves before spray painting them later on.
- Take a single branch and cut off the top leaf.
- Cut a fairly long piece of string. I would say around 30 -40 cm.
- Pick a second branch of leaves and tie the first branch underneath, positioned slightly below. This will make your branch look longer. In terms of tying: its best to wrap the string around and tie it at various places for a firm hold.
- In the same way you’ve tied the branches together, wrap the string around your branches and comb whilst knotting securely.
- Once done, you may cut out any string-ends and prepare to spray paint. Spray your comb on one side and allow it to dry for a few hours (I waited half a day) before turning it over to do the other side.
- (Optional) If you are like me, you may want to finish off by spraying an additional layer of gold spray paint or varnish.
