Whether you’re in a relationship, have an admirer, are single or just all about Galentines! Valentines is all about showing love to that special someone. This year Instead of doing a standard gift guide I wanted to do something to make it all about you, of course including some little gifts that you can either gift yourself or gift someone else included along the way! There is no one more special than you and you should take some time for yourself every now and again and what better day that Valentines.
Begin your day of self-love with a little breakfast, skip the porridge or smoothie today and go for something a little different. Dippy eggs and soldiers are my go to as they remind me of being a kid and when I eat them, I don’t care I instantly feel better. These marble engraved egg cups from MarbleTree* are just adorable, Jonny and myself both have one personalised and they are the perfect addition and gift for him or her and they come as a set. They are also great to buy just because as they are a lovely little extra to the home especially as you can get Mr & Mrs engraved too. Anything marble is a bloggers dream and personalised wow hello photo opportunity!
This is my perfect night in anyway: Face mask first, I am using the Jurlique Intense Recovery Mask which you can read about in my revive your winter skin post. Then a candle or in this case 3, I mean what is better than a trio of candles eh? these are the Bayliss and Harding La Maison Sea Salt & Wild Mint* collection (avaliable on Moonpig who also sell a range of great gifts and cards) they are so amazing and have a real White Company Wild Mint candle feel they are really elegant and they are so fresh yet relaxing. To top off the whole relaxation session it has to be a bath bomb. I would normally opt for Lush but these are from the Miss Patisserie bath fizzer collection* they come in a box (which I must add is also beautiful) of 4 so they are easily stored without all the powdered mess and they smell divine I decided to use Coral Bay one it worked so well with the sea salt scent of the candles with hints of water liyyly and freshia. It let me just met away and relax the perfect treat combo.
If you’re staying in why not get your comfies on and catch up with some TV. Netflix at the moment is amazing and so many good shows are on, we’ve done The OA and Travellers already this year but we’re now half way through Santa Clarita Diet (could always take the laptop in and watch in the bath too just to really binge watch). I would always opt for a Chai tea as I settle back into the sofa and as a little treat to add to the mix I would recommend to go for a little cupboard rummage to grab these little chunks of heaven from from Cartwright & Butler in the form of their salted caramel fudge but make sure you eat it all because after all, you deserve it and that’s what I’d do!
