While the thought of spending a Valentine’s Day alone sparks dread among many singles, Adrienne Bailon isn’t one of them.
The reality star/singer/actress, 29, who once dated Rob Kardashian, is happy to be free this year.
“I’m going to take a ski trip with all my girlfriends,” she tells me during the launch of her Valentine’s Day cocktail, the HPNOTIQ Heartbreaker, in NYC. “I am heading up to a place called Shawnee Mountain – it’s a ski resort up near my parents’ house in Pennsylvania. We’re getting cabins out there with friends, and having a good time.”
She adds, “Actually, there probably will be some guys there. We’re going to have fun. I’ve never done a big ski trip like that, so I’m excited.”
Hm, where did she get the idea?
“I created a bucket list this year, and one of them was doing a ski trip. I was like ‘oh, perfect! I’ll do that for Valentine’s Day.’ Me and all my girlfriends will go and have this amazing time. I’m going to take time for myself, and I think a lot of people don’t have that opportunity, so I want to take advantage of that.”
For others who are planning to spend Feb. 14 on their own, Adrienne encourages embracing the single status.
“As opposed to avoiding it, you should make it into a really fun day with your girlfriends,” she explains. “I say ‘go all out’ for Valentine’s Day. A lot of single folks stay home and be depressed and be by yourself, but that is not the way to do Valentine’s Day. Get out, go out, meet people, have fun, make it memorable.”
Plus, it’s important to remember the benefits of flying solo.
“I think it’s so important to have fun when you’re single because there’s no stress, and there’s no one to impress,” she says. “There’s no one to go out and spend money on to buy gifts, or planning to be done. You can have the time of your life, and love yourself on that day. Take a day to do something great for yourself. Buy yourself something great, and do something you really love to do.”
