Set the Mood

Spending time alone can be just as special as time with a loved one — it's all about how you approach it. Relish that solo time and create a calm and inviting atmosphere at home. Light some sweet-smelling candles, put on something that makes you feel good (whether it's a beautiful blouse or your favorite sweats), and start your evening off right with a divine and ultra-girly cocktail, like this chocolate-raspberry creation. If you're being extra good to yourself, you can even enjoy this one with a side of dessert.
