Valentine's Day is just around the corner and whilst I've been busy preparing some lovely treats for the two loves in my life - my fiance and our little boy, I've also been picking up some gorgeous cosmetics for myself to enjoy as well, after all, I deserve some loving too! I've also picked up some decorations for the mantlepiece too, it's safe to say I'm well and truly embracing the season of love this year.
The card I got for my little love Tyler Lee. I really do love him to the moon and back.
Two bears in love sitting by the Eiffel Tower in Paris, like seriously, how could I resist this card for my other half?! I'd love us to visit Paris someday soon so this is a nod to that.
I think perfume is a Valentine's Day staple and the one I shall be wearing this year is Comme Une Evidence by one of my favourite brands Yves Rocher. Isn't the bottle just beautiful? I love classic looking bottles like this that come with a pump, there's just something so whimsical about a pump on a perfume for me. The scent of this perfume is just as beautiful as the bottle it comes in. The scent is made up of crumpled violet leaves, rose, patchouli, bergamot, jasmine and wild lily of the valley blossom, it's such a light, feminine fragrance and is perfect for Valentines Day.
Valentines Day wouldn't be complete without chocolate of some sort and this year I've picked up my other half a special Toblerone - one of his favourite chocolate brands, that's pretty sweet as it says "you're my number one" on the front, very fitting for the day of love I'm sure you'll agree. I've also picked him up some different varieties of Galaxy. I also picked up a little bag of white chocolate buttons for my little love Tyler Lee but these are extra special with some sprinkles on them too.
You may have seen that last week I surprised my fiance with a batch of Valentine's themed cupcakes and a heartfelt card for when he came home from work. It's true, you don't need Valentines Day to show your other half that you love them, you should show them each day but last week I made and extra special effort and he loved it. I really loved how the cupcakes turned out. He thought the love-heart and the 'I ♥ U' decorations were great and he really loved his delicious sweet treat!
Little Black Dress palette is the newest eyeshadow palette to grace my makeup collection and I have to admit it's probably the most luxurious looking too. Encased in a gorgeous black patent, magnetic close compact, this eight-strong eyeshadow palette has a range of plum, berry, lilacs, grey and charcoal shades to make any perfect look for Valentine's Day, from a sweet day look to a sultry night look. I love this palette so much and shall be reviewing it in more detail on the blog soon.
One thing I'm having trouble with is finding the perfect, unique gift for my other half. We will be going out for a meal for Valentine's Day but I'd also like to get him something to surprise him too. Something which is all the range (and which I wouldn't mind receiving myself!) are subscription boxes. They really are the gift which keeps and giving and lets face it, who doesn't love receiving little treats via post?! The Subscription Box Finder was created by My Voucher Codes and can help you to find the perfect subscription box for that special person in your life depending on their interests. I think that Jacek would love Geek Box or the Beer Club Subscription. You can use the Subscription Box Finder below to find the perfect subscription box for your other half, or yourself if you think you deserve a treat too!
Have you any special plans for Valentine's Day? Have you picked up any treats for yourself or your other half?
