Can you believe Valentines day is just around the corner? As tough and miserable a month January has been it's actually flown by! Hello February. February is actually a really good month for me as we usually head off for some winter sun around about this time. It's also my birthday month AND it's Valentines day. That's a lot to celebrate.

When it comes to valentines day, whilst roses and chocolates are nice, they can be a little bit of a cliche this time of year. And trust me, a girls can smell a petrol station bunch and box a mile off. In fact, ... Read More

What's on your wishlist this February 14th? Of course, every day should be Valentines day, but it's always nice to have an excuse for presents, no?

For me there is nothing more un-romantic than a Valentines date-night. Tables of two, set menu's and prosecco are not top of my list.  But I will never say no to gifts. A thoughtful present topped off with yummy food, fireside snuggles and a delicious bottle of red. Now that's true love. (Kids in bed, on time, and sleeping through permitting...)

Alternatively, who needs a Valentine, Valentino will do!

I always used to be a chunky-jewels kinda girl but for some reason or another my style has changed and I find myself more and more drawn to those delicate, simplistic pieces.

I would happily make room in my jewelry box for a number of her pieces.  Those pretty little rings especially are totally wearable.

It's a bit late for Valentine's Day but my 30th i ... Read More

As well as receiving a nice gift myself this Valentines, it's important to remember that you can also give something nice to your love in return. In all honesty my husband and I never really buy into Valentines gifting, but maybe this year we will both spoil each other a little..

This is what I am thinking for him - You can't go wrong with a divine smelling cologne, and it's always better to choose yourself. Don't you just hate it when they wear that aftershave you can't stand?! I adore Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza so sexy. A great hair product will always go ... Read More

I guess it has to be done, a Valentine's post, with a little bit of wishful thinking and some serious hinting. What would mama love to receive this February 14th? (If I am totally honest a card and some flowers would be perfect, but it's always nice to have an extra surprise, especially when you have been feeling so under the weather. Something unexpected is always extra-special.)

Amber and Lavander bath oil Jo Malone, Ellie leather changing bag Baby Beau, silver 'love' bracelet Alex Monroe, Gardenia scented candle Diptyque, Sophie embroidered Bra and silk briefs M ... Read More
