Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Killer Crocs!

When I was 18, to rebel against the world my parents had created, I shaved a half Mohawk, encouraged my hair to stand on end, grew my armpit hair, wore torn black rags, too much eyeliner and wore 18-hole Dr. Martens boots. These days, to give their parents the shits, the kids are wearing Crocs. With socks. They’re going for comfort.

Dear Readers,

Valentine’s Day is a magical time of year where we are given the opportunity to share our love with the one who truly gives meaning to our lives.

All over the world, couples are planning on extravagant adventures, romantic excursions, getaways, and unbelievable date nights that will put the spark back into their relationships and leave their partners absolutely breathless.

But there’s a problem for many of us out there..

We’re “romantically challenged”.

We’ve never felt comfortable being romantic. We don’t experience a rush of creative and original ideas when planning out a romantic event, heck, we’re barely able to pick out a decent greeting card at times.

We find these times of year overwhelming, and we sometimes need a bit of help coming up with thoughtful ways that we can express our love for the one person in our lives that we can always count on.

But while we WANT to be romantic, and we know that there are times (like on February 14th!) where we’re EXPECTED to be romantic, it doesn’t always come so naturally.

You’re not alone.

There are thousands of us all over the world who need that extra guidance when planning out a romantic date, and with so much pressure to create the perfect Valentine’s Day, we can find ourselves dealing with intense stress and anxiety.

After all, we can’t all be born natural Casanova’s!

But here’s the thing. You are reading this page because you know how important Valentine’s Day is to your partner. You don’t want them feeling left out, neglected or unappreciated.

Your partner does a lot for you, and she (or he) deserves to be treated like the centre of your world, because they are.

So, if you truly want to give them a day they will always remember, and show them that you put your best effort into celebrating the love you share.. We’ve got you covered!

This year, you are going to make it a day they will never forget, because as of right now, you will have more than enough creative and affordable ideas to melt their hearts and leave them breathless!
