So what if you spent Valentine’s day with friends? So what if your current boyfriend substitute is your job, iphone or gay best friend? So what if all your friends seem to have gone shopping at the Mr. Right [Now] store without you?
Look, being single is not a death sentence. Sometimes the single life is just the hand you’re dealt. However, forgetting your sexiness as a result is unacceptable and unnecessary. As someone who has plenty of experience flying solo, I have found foolproof ways to keep me feeling sexy whether or not there is a boy of the moment to remind me of it. Next time you find yourself in that pit of self-loathing that often accompanies sitting around in your favorite gnarly 10-year old pajama pants while watching Duck Dynasty on a Friday night, use these tips for a lady-like pick-me-up. You deserve it!
OWN A REALLY SEXY UNDERWEAR SET
Whatever your style is, have a pair of panties and matching bra that make you feel like Gisele Bundchen. Whether or not you get to show the undies off right away is totally irrelevant. It’s a naughty little confidence boost knowing that even under your sweatpants or favorite band tee you have a little secret with yourself.
LEARN A NEW HAIRSTYLE ON YOUTUBE..AND THEN SHOW IT OFF
I know this sounds like a lot of work, but when I’m feeling blah I love to figure out a way to change up my look without doing anything drastic. Youtube is a great resource for finding out how your favorite celeb did that darling fishtail braid at a recent event. Acquiring a new skill always makes you feel good, and now at the next opportunity you can confidently show off a fun new look that will probably get you compliments. And who doesn’t love that?
HAVE A SPECIAL LOTION THAT YOU SAVE FOR WHEN YOU NEED A SEXINESS BOOST
To be money savvy I like to moisturize daily with lotion form the drug store, but I save a bottle of something nicer and deliciously scented for going out or if I just want to feel extra girly that day. My personal favorite is Victoria’s Secret Pink’s Fresh and Clean scent!
HAVE A “SEXY TRACK”
This is a specific jam that for whatever reason makes you work what you’ve got. I personally love Pour Some Sugar on Me by Def Leppard for the gym, or Lady by Lenny Kravitz when I’m walking to class. I love pretending like I’m in that vintage SJP Gap commercial underscored by this song— youtube it. When you’re lost in your favorite beats, you’re not paying attention to how you look, but you’re just having fun Having fun oozes confidence and confidence equals sexy. You’re welcome.
So hey, you may not be the one gushing about your boy toy right now, but in a way consider yourself lucky. Not enough of us know how to feel sexy on our own without someone to remind us, and right now you have time to figure that out. Sexiness is intrinsic, and you have it. So work whatever that means to you.
If you feel sexiest in a pair of battered converse with your favorite overalls when you’re going out, go for it! As for me, I’m gonna go learn Beyonce’s half-time Superbowl choreography, because knowing Beyonce choreography is just one more way I feel super sexy.
What’s your trick to feeling sexy?
