Valentine's Day 2014 (outside of the box ideas)..

Yup, the daily texts have started from my friends already.."What should I do for my boyfriend/girlfriend for Vday? I need something creative, HELP!!!" For those of you who don't know, this blog was originally meant to be focused to help readers come up with outside of the box date ideas, however, it quickly evolved to all events in Los Angeles. Anyway, here is an "early" list of Valentine Day ideas, I will keep updating it as it gets closer, so keep checking back ;) or if you are looking for something more specific/different, email me and I would be glad to give you ideas! annikas21@yahoo.com
