How to Have a Stress-Free Sweetest Day


With holiday season just around the corner, you may have overlooked one smaller occasion that can score you big points with your significant other – Sweetest Day! A much less-hyped version of Valentine’s Day, Skinnygirl® Cocktails like to celebrate this day by keeping it short, sweet, and simple. No elaborate costume, turkey dinner, decorated tree, or ANY stressful holiday shopping required – it’s about celebrating you, your sweetie, and your time spent together.

A lady knows nothing is sweeter than a little surprise, so make his day extra special with a few of these spontaneous tips:

• Start your day off right with breakfast in bed for two. No need to slave away over it, just wake up an extra 20 minutes early to whip up some quick egg sandwiches and bacon (and if you’re feeling it, a Bloody Mary made with Skinnygirl™ Cucumber Vodka!). Deliver it on a cute tray (bonus points if you bring the sports section with it!)

• Know his morning routine? Leave his favorite candies near all his usual a.m. spots (alarm clock, toothbrush holder, shower, vitamin cabinet)

• Take a cute photo of yourself doing something he loves (holding a football, playing with the dog, modeling a new outfit) with an “I Love you” sign and set it as the background of his computer

• Sneak his cell phone and set an alarm reminding him of a romantic dinner for two you’ve planned

• Instead of spending your day in the kitchen, place an order for his favorite delivery spot to be sent over at dinner time (bonus points if you have the delivery person do something special, like write a sweet message in pizza toppings or a fortune cookie)

Once you’ve got your surprises set, it’s time to focus on our two favorite things – drinks and dessert. To satisfy your sweet tooth, indulge in this easy, low-cal frozen treat you two will adore.
