I was originally going to do a Valentines makeup look but I never got round to doing it in time, so I thought I would show you what I got and did instead! Valentines Day isn’t something I’ve ever done anything crazy for, I usually just like to give a card and a present and keep it simple. I tend to save the bigger presents for birthdays and Christmas.
Firstly, my boyfriend gave me an adorable card with a sausage dog on it (my absolute fave dog breed so he was winning from the start). He also gave me this gorgeous Yankee Candle gift set. If you know me, you’ll know I bloody LOVE candles. I think I have a problem, I am obsessed with them! I absolutely love Yankee Candle, they always have such gorgeous scents and lovely packaging too. This set includes three of their fab candles: Peony, Rose and Raspberry. Peony and Rose are votives and Raspberry is a small jar candle. I think this is such a cute combination of scents as they’re all fresh and fruity and I think they work well together! They’re all pink/red as well so they look gorgeous on my dressing table. If you’re also obsessed with candles too, check out my Autumn and Winter candle posts, there will be a spring one coming soon too – eek!
We also went out for dinner at Prezzo which is our favourite Italian restaurant and they had a deal which meant we could get three courses for £20 each – YES! I’ve always enjoyed sitting in busy restaurants because there’s so many opportunities to people watch which is one of my favourite things to do! However, I did witness the poor lad next to me, on what seemed like his first date, find out that his vouchers didn’t work and he couldn’t pay for the meal in the way he had planned (this was painful to watch). Anyway, we stuffed our faces and enjoyed the evening before coming back and cracking on with coursework (sad but true). He also brought me a Costa hot chocolate, my favourite interior design magazine and some flowers too which absolutely made my day! Not to mention a Krispy Kreme donut too (I think it’s the biscoff one – my fave)
I know this was quite a simple post but I had a few friends and people over on Twitter asking me what I got up to on Valentine’s Day, so I thought I would do a short and sweet post on my blog for you! Let me know if any of you guys did anything special for the day, I would love to know.
