Valentine's Day Photo Booth: Love Is In The Hague! ❤

If you've read my blog post on all the fun ways to spend Valentine's Day when you're single, you might remember the idea to create a fun DIY photo booth for you and your friends.. Ever since then I felt inspired and decided to approach DenHaagDirect with the idea. Surprisingly they were just as excited about it as I was, and so the planning process started. I've honestly had so much fun with the preparations, but this project doesn't come to life unless YOU participate! So if you happen to be in or near the Hague city this Valentine's day, please consider what I'm about to tell you next as a personal invitation!

Love Is In The Hague 

This Sunday on Valentine's day (duh!) between 12:00 and 15:00, we're setting up a very special Love Photo Booth, right in front of the big and bright red doors of The Hague's Grote Kerk in the city center. Perfect for those adorable couple selfies or even those best friend goals snaps! Whoever you end up posing with, make sure to share your pics on social media with the hashtag #LoveIsInTheHague and #DenHaagDirect. Because who ever happens to send in the most cutest, coolest or funniest picture wins two free tickets to Het Filmhuis!

Ways to Spend Valentine's Day When You're Single ❤

All the single ladies, all the single ladies.. now put your hands up! Personally I've never had this problem, but Valentine's Day can be a very lousy day for some people when they're single. Yes, it's a very commercialized holiday. But I feel like people tend to forget that this day isn't just about having a significant other to show love to, but also family and friends you hold dear to your heart! But just in case, you think you're going to be miserable, I've come up with ten ways to make this year's Valentine's day a more special one. Have fun reading :)

1. A Solo Netflix and Chill

If you're a homebody like me, I'm sure there's nothing you enjoy more than your own company in the comfort of your home. And being single on Valentine's Day shouldn't feel any different. So climb in bed or curl up on your comfy coach, have a big bowl of buttered popcorn besides you at all times and let the binge watching of your favorite old shows begin! 

2. DIY Home Spa

When you feel like taking a little break from all that netflixing, treat yourself to a relaxing home-spa session! Your mind and body will love you for it. What you'll need: some scented candles, zen music, colorful bath bombs, body scrub, face & hair mask.. and a bottle of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries, if you're feeling fancy. 

3. Pinterest Dinner Party

In case you rather not spend Valentine's Day alone, gather all your single gals together and host the most Pinterest-looking dinner party ever! Get some delicious looking recipes online and show everyone you're a kitchen princess in disguise. Deck the place out with cute dining linens, cutlery, plates and some pretty little flowers as the center piece. Get all of your friends to split the costs, or even more fun: DIY everything! Finish the dining area off with a few girly pillows, heart balloons and some sparkle! Don't forget to take lots of pictures!

How You & Your Friends Can Become Squad Goals ❤

If you've been somewhat living on social media for the past year (I'm not judging I swear), there's no way the hashtag squadgoals didn't cross your path at least a thousand times. It definitely became a thing after Taylor Swift decided to bring her posse of "Bad Blood" bad girls along to last year's VMAs. Ever since then girls everywhere have been aspiring to become just as fierce as the OG squad and continuously attempt to display just how tight their friendship bond really is, no matter how big or small of a group.
