Valentine’s Day is about love. It’s about romance. It’s also about cards, candy, dinner, and dates. If you’re lucky, it might even be about lingerie and jewelry. It’s a gala for two that’s all about an extraordinary connection. To celebrate, instead of doing the same old same old this year, why not try something a little different. Focus on what makes you… YOUnique! Make it a day so remarkable that your story will be shared for generations to come.

What says forever better than a tattoo? Before you say, ‘bad idea,’ we’re not talking about something as incriminating as branding yourselves with each other’s name. Think deep. Think unique. A shared passion, a meaningful quote, or a favorite anime character. Close your eyes. What’s the first thing that pops into your mind that symbolizes your bond? That’s right. Now you’re onto something. Are you really in love? Then ink about it!

Forget oysters. If you want the perfect aphrodisiac for a romantic evening, try dancing. Not that freestyle fiasco of self-expression that you do every weekend at the clubs. Real dancing. An elegant waltz.  A spicy salsa! Something that gets two bodies communicating on a purely physical, wordless level that fans embers of curiosity into raging infernos of desire. This Valentine’s Day, La Luna Dance Studio is offering a special “Sweetheart Dance Lesson,” plus chocolate covered strawberries and champagne. You’re welcome!
