ME TIME DURING THE VALENTINES PERIOD

hotel de crillion paris
I’m a little bit of a sucker for Valentines Day, okay, a big sucker for Valentines. Whether you’re celebrating with your dog, your bestie or your partner, I love it. I get that it can be lonely, but I try not to take it too seriously, I use it as an excuse for me time. I’d happily celebrate it by myself, spoon feeding Nutella and then go for a date with Jo Malone in the bath. I know it’s a ‘marketing ploy’ but whatever, I think it can be light-hearted and fun and I fall for all of it, from Valentines chocolates, to Valentines beauty products to Valentines pyjamas (I have even bought Valentines day toast toppers before, yup, I am a marketers dream, I buy myself roses because let's face it, no-one else is gonna buy me them). I use the Valentines period as a chance to love yourself and pamper, I think this is the perfect excuse for me to write about some of my current favourite pamper tips. This doesn't mean just for today either, but I try and do weekly pamper sessions (every Sunday). There are so many little ways you can treat yourself.

Boots / Dress / Scarf / Sunglasses - Ray-Ban from WorldDutyFree 

I'm a sucker for Valentine's Day but I'm sure you already know that, I always have been. Just like Easter and Christmas, I like to go all out. I fall for all the balloons, the heart shaped cookies and the funny cards. I'm a sucker for romance and I'm more than happy to have a whole day dedicated to it. Things are pretty hectic at the moment so when LateRooms.com invited Matt and I to 'get a room' in time for Valentine's, we were pretty excited, it really is never too late to get a room! We spent our weekend celebrating Valentine's early and what a dream it was. See, that's the thing about Valentines, I like to use it as a reminder to spend valuable time with someone you love, whether it's your girlfriends or your partner or your family. It doesn't have to be extravagant but the gift of time really is the best gift you can give. Let's see what we got up to...

4 New Pre-Spring Wardrobe Additions + Benefit BadGAL Bang Mascara Review

Debenhams fashion
Valentine's day, GALentines day, just-another-day or how about love yourself day? Whatever your stance on Valentine's day, I'm personally a sucker for it (sorry not sorry). I thought I'd put a few Spring items together to create a daytime Valentine's day look in the hope it inspires you. I'm all about day dates, whether it's with the girls for brunch, my Mumma or my boyfriend and I'm also a little obsessed with Spring, so I'm slowly filtering new bits into my wardrobe. I hope you love these pieces as much as I do and maybe they'll give you some outfit inspo this Valentines.
