City Pulse

By Candace Bryan

Each one of us is unique, but there’s one thing we can all agree on: we’d like to have a pleasurable Valentine’s Day. After all, it’s a holiday dedicated to love, the feeling that unites even the most unlikely groups of people. Yet, because of our differences, each one of us probably has a different idea for what actually makes a great Valentine’s Day experience.

So we here at BeautyNewsNYC have come up with a list of things and activities that we believe will be of aid to all women: whether you’re single or coupled, a Valentine’s Day enthusiast or someone who rolls their eyes at the spectacle. This list will help you treat yourself and your loved ones.

For the Perfect Date Night:
There’s plenty to do in NYC, but when you’ve lived here a while, you can find yourself frequenting the same handful of familiar spots. GetWist is an app that helps you break out of your date rut, and find new places based on your personal preferences. Valentine’s Day is an apt time to branch out, and nothing’s more romantic than discovering something new and wonderful.

For a Raucous Ladies Night:
For the non-coupled among us, there’s a convenient new service in town that trumps a simple single-ladies bar night. Rent-a-Gent lets you actually rent a hunky male as an arm-candy date, handyman, or even as a “dancer” to party with you and your gal pals. Maybe you won’t get chocolates, but that sounds pretty sweet to us.

Browse through dozens of talented and handsome hunks at RentAGent.me.

For the Sweetest Gift:
Everyone gives boxes of chocolates on Valentine’s Day. Why not get a little more creative this year? Dana’s Bakery sells some of the most delicious macarons we’ve tasted outside of Paris, and with a number of Valentine’s Day specials, these treats will make even truffles look humdrum.

See all the tasty offerings at DanasBakery.com.

For the Most Kissable Lips:
Soft lips are an important part of romance, but having a perfect pout is hard when winter is still in full swing. Pacifica has the solution, though, with coconut-infused Creamy Lip Butter. The all-natural formulas are all-natural and sweet, and they come in a variety of long-lasting colors. Your lips will be hydrated, soft, and ready for whatever comes their way.
