The big holiday season is coming hear, and you’ve suddenly come to realization that you are all alone with no one to enjoy the night with. And while everyone is out sharing the holiday spirit with their loved ones, you can also enjoy the time to yourself. Think about it; no one to boss you around, no one to clean up after? Just you, you snuggly pajamas and some ‘heavenly peace’.

So, if you’re a woman without a man, here are a few things you can do enjoying the holidays, solo!

1. Pamper Yourself
If you have a whole day with nothing to do, give your body a little R&R by heading to the nearest spa for a nice facial, and most importantly, a body massage. A massage will help you release endorphins, which will make you feel happier and more refreshed after. Follow up with a mani-pedi, and perhaps head to the hair salon and get your hair curled for a night out?
