Hi friends! Happy Wednesday!
As you’re already aware, tomorrow is Valentine’s Day! I don’t know if this has any meaning in your life or whether you think it’s a silly holiday but I think it’s kind of cute. To me, it always serves as a gentle reminder to show those you love a little more appreciation. By way of example, my dad (who is an honest angel, by the way) absolutely loves Turkish delight and I happened to come across a lovely box of the pink treat while doing the grocery shopping over the weekend. Naturally, I added it to my basket as a little Valentine’s gift for him. Whether you’re in a relationship or not, letting the people you love know they’re special to you is always fun to do on Valentine’s Day.
I’m not yet sure if Ryan and I will be headed out for a date night on Valentine’s Day but I think we might stay at home and cook a delicious meal. I think we might save our special date night for next week as we mark 1 year until our wedding on 22 February! As you can imagine, this puts a huge smile on both our faces. Does that be Valentine’s Day from now onwards is canceled? Not quite, however, I do think it will always be trumped by our wedding anniversary and I don’t mind that in the slightest!
If you happen to know you’re going to be spoilt with a really special Valentine’s Day dinner, though, I’d definitely suggest reading my Valentine’s Day Outfit Inspiration post for a few ideas on what to wear for the occasion. I’ve listed my favourite dresses, earrings, bags and heels in that post for an extra glamorous and polished look. Truth be told though, you could wear any of those gorgeous outfits to an upcoming special occasion on your social calendar.
If red is not your colour, however, and you’re looking for something pink to wear this Valentine’s Day or for any occasion coming up on your social calendar for that matter, here are a few of my favourite choices:
You always need a few little accessories to pull together the final touches on a great outfit so here are a few of my favourite choices in terms of lipstick, heels, earrings and a purse too:
If you’re looking for a last minute gift for the man in your life, whether a boyfriend, fiancé or husband, I would definitely recommend a FitBit Versa fitness watch (I bought one for Ryan last year and he absolutely loves it), a great new fragrance such as Invictus by Paco Rabanne (ladies, this smell will give you butterflies!!!) or perhaps a new wallet to make his day!
Whether you’re spending Valentine’s Day drinking cocktails with friends, ordering pizza and watching movies on the couch or dressing up and being spoilt with a night out on the town, enjoy every minute! Don’t forget to also let those most important to you know how much you love them. Have a happy Valentine’s Day!
