So he's travelling. Or you are. Or he's just stuck in a video game marathon or a boys’ poker night. Or you have no boy in your life - and that's totally OKAY! Self-service (pun intended) is a fabulous thing. Here's how you get into the mood all by your awesome self! (And make yourself happy, of course!)

1. Set the atmosphere

Dim the lights. Light a few candles. It's all about setting the scene, right?

2. Unwind

Hop into the shower - or take a long leisurely soak in the tub. Use products that smell amazing. Slather on some luxurious body lotion. Take your time, think of it as a mini massage.

3. Get comfy

Pop on something cosy, something pretty - we are not recommending tatty PJs - remember your end goal here. Get comfy in bed (or your couch!).

4. A little ambient music

Nothing soothes and relaxes like some mood music. Whether it’s some jazz you like or slow Bollywood melodies are more your jam - put that on.

5. Fancy some wine?

Or maybe a mojito. Or just some iced pomegranate juice. Just pour or mix yourself something you enjoy, something that not just eases you but also teases you a bit!

6. In the mood

Now think of what stimulates you. It could be a sultry movie, it could be a steamy book. If Mr Grey turns you on, then grab your dog-eared copy of 50 Shades. Basically, whatever inspires you!

7. Finally, get handsy

Now, we are pretty sure you can handle this part. Remember, it's all about the journey - not the just destination (which is also important!). So take your time and have fun. The more you get in tune with yourself, the easier it all gets!
