Plan Something a little Sexy


n your Valentine’s Day Getaway a little sex appeal goes along way. Even if you’re out with friends it can be super fun to do something sexy! Adding a bit of appeal can make your v-day extra fun and exciting. 

‘Sexy’ doesn’t have to mean ultra risque unless you’re in to that. Consider taking a dance class, visiting a hotel with a v-day suite or a burlesque club. Valentine’s day can be a time to connect with your partner and explore your passion.
