Love is in the air. This coming Saturday, the streets of London and every city around the world will be filled with people who want to show their love for each other. Staring at each other endlessly, kissing like the French do, feeding each other and of course the scream of pleasure at the end the night. From a business point of view, Valentine’s Day is also for the florists, chocolatiers, restaurants, or jewellers and any love preachers, another Christmas blessing. According to Quartz data analysis, this love celebration is worth 12 billion!! Yes that’s right. Men tend to spend twice as much for this occasion. That’s right; they should do everything to make us happy. But everyone should be happy on Valentine’s Day. It is a celebration of love for a partner, a friend, a relative, a co-worker and of course love for yourself. In a relationship or not, why not treat yourself or get someone else to treat you nice?

I went out of curiosity and I must admit Cate is fabulous. She is funny, has a great energy and communicates very well. She explained the importance of loving yourself and being happy to meet someone fabulous. She also taught guests how to flirt in a very soft way and the importance of positive thinking.
