Feeling the love

Valentine’s day is just around the corner, and whilst you can normally lump me into the fairly ‘meh’ group about the whole ‘commercial/overhyped’ day thing, but since getting engaged not long ago then you may have to excuse me feeling a bit suckered in by all things love related!

But to me Valentine’s doesn’t have to be about over priced roses or forced romantic dinners – it’s just about showing the person you love that you love them. That person doesn’t have to be another person either, nothing wrong with a bit of self appreciation or a little treat that makes you feel fab!

Feeling the love
These are a few bits and bobs that I picked out that have a bit of a love theme going on or just things that make me feel good! The heart print dress is from Topshop – it’s just adorable, love the heart print. Nothing like a new outfit to make a girl feel good! 
Other goodies…Chanel Chance Eau Fresh, my personal all time favourite perfume, adorable heart print blusher* and heart shaped nib lipstick* – both from M&S beauty. The lipstick is a gorgeous creamy texture and I absolutely love the heart nib! OPI Nothin’ Mousie ‘Bout It – the ultimate in girly pink heart sequins! The Alex Monroe ‘Love’ ring has been on my wish list for a while… Oral B LE pink electric toothbrush*… no snogging without minty fresh breath (I’ve recently been converted to the benefits of electric toothbrush over manual and no harm making it look pretty too) and last but by no means least – fluttery lashes thanks to this gorgeous LE YSL Love Edition mascara – with cute Swarovski heart on the glossy gold packaging.
So just a few picks of some cute little love-themed goodies… what’s your go-to for making yourself a little bit special?

    I need that OPI polish! It looks exactly like my kinda thing, wish I’d got my hands on it before tomorrow!

    I use an electric toothbrush, and I definitely favour it over regular brushing, but I never knew you could get pink ones. I suddenly want it, even though there’s nothing wrong with the one I have…

    I ordered this love heart dress from Topshop because I loved it but when it arrived it just didn’t suit me. The YSL masacara is so cute!
