50 Shades of Love

Valentines Day Guide 2015

50 Shades of Love

An unusual take on romance this Valentine's Day for couples, singles and the unconventional type...

Just because you’ve tied the knot/been together forever doesn't mean that you and your hunny bunny/boo/babe (sickening pet names!) are huge proponents of Valentine's Day and all of the mushy-gushy, red rose B.S. it typically entails.

However, there's no reason happy couples and singles shouldn't find a less nauseating way to celebrate their love. Love for a partner, love for being single and love for friends/that special friend or just love that’s yet to come. <Love is in the air… everywhere I look around... do-do do-do... love actually>
