LIQUID COURAGE
Getting Busy With A Juice Cleanse

Nothing says romantic like an alcohol-free juice cleanse for two, right?

Actually, the correct answer is: Yes!

If you’re walking around the Lower East Side (somewhere around 85 Stanton St., for instance), you might miss this tiny shop offering only organic juices, nut milks, and smoothies. If that happens, it's no problem at all! Let Heartbeet Juicery come to you, considering that they offer delivery services, detailed product descriptions, and cleanse packages online for your convenience. Of course, nothing beats visiting the actual location, speaking with a friendly employee, and saving a bit on shipping, but if this isn't possible, they still want to make sure that you're satisfied!

LIFESTYLE
How To Spend Valentine's Day Alone

Valentine's Day- the official annual day of love. Some people count down the days till this romantically momentous event, while others avoid it as one would the apocalypse. If you're one of those anti-valentine types, or you just couldn't find a date in time you can still have an awesome Valentine's Day! So put down the box of chocolates and pint of ice cream and don't you dare think about popping that Nicholas Spark movie into your DVD player. Have your own fun and make Valentine's Day a little more interesting this year. (Tip #1: Don't be Elle Woods)

Even if you don't have a date this year, you'll always have your friends. Invite your favorite buddies over for some mani pedi pampering, a poker game, or a good ol' case of beers. In this case, her best friend is her dog- and he's fabulous.

HOW-TO
D.I.Y. Valentines Day

When it comes to Valentines Day, the standard plan is a trip out to a fancy restaurant, possibly some drinking and dancing, and, presumably, an eventual return home to continue your evening. But why not cut out a step and spend the whole night at home? Sure, you could do the out-on-the-town thing, but there's something really special about preparing a meal for someone you love (or at least like a lot) yourself. Plus, as we mentioned before, you've got bedroom proximity on your side.

Sure, they may seem sappy, but love is sappy sometimes. If you're feeling mushy, these heart-shaped beet pockets are a perfect way to start the evening out on a romantic note.

  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup filtered water

BEST OF
A Sweeter Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day has a tendency to be very commercialized and glitzy-- filled with ultra fancy dinners and over the top dresses. For many, however, long reservation waits and rooftop extravaganzas are less than intriguing. Perhaps a quaint café or cozy bistro is more your speed? Here is a list of 5 romantic, adorable and affordable places to spend this day of love (or any day), all against the backdrop of Europe. After all, Europe is the home of romance, cafés, decadent desserts, copious wine, and desire. Valentine’s Day is merely a few days away, and while you might not be able to swing a European lover’s getaway, perhaps you can manage a subway ride and short stroll to one of these underrated, Woody Allen-esque romance spots in the city.
