Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to you. Whether you're madly in love, spending it with your girls or having an anti-Valentine's Day party as inspired by the movie, I hope it's a good one. Personally, one of the best Valentine's Days that I've had was when I was at Uni; My girlfriends and I decided to buy lots of pink wine, heart-shaped biscuits and cakes, laughed until our stomachs hurt and went to a club and danced the night away. Perfect. 

'Valentine' by Carol Ann Duffy is one of my favourite poems. It's not a lovely dovey poem, in fact it's probably an anti - Valentine's day poem but it's something I think every woman can relate to.

Not a red rose or a satin heart.

I give you an onion.
It is a moon wrapped in brown paper.
It promises light
like the careful undressing of love.

It will blind you with tears
like a lover.
It will make your reflection
a wobbling photo of grief.

I am trying to be truthful.

Not a cute card or a kissogram.

I give you an onion.
Its fierce kiss will stay on your lips,
possessive and faithful
as we are,
for as long as we are.

Take it.
Its platinum loops shrink to a wedding-ring,
if you like.

Its scent will cling to your fingers,
cling to your knife.

I'm sure we've all been blinded by tears at some point but this only means that Mr or Mrs Right is still out there.

Valentine's Day goodies.

Happy Valentine's Day! I have picked a few of my favourite products inspired by Valentine's Day. Whether you're going on a romantic date or having a night out with your girls, I think you can wear these beauties. 

This heart necklace from River Island is sooo pretty and if the man in your life doesn't buy it for you, then you need to buy it for yourself. It's perfect for any occasion and I'll be popping along to River Island asap.

I love the lips design that Lulu Guinness uses. I'm so tempted to invest in her luggage but in the meantime this cute red lips purse is more affordable.

Finally, a sexy pair of heels are a must this weekend. The bonus of Valentine's Day falling on a Friday is that you can spend Friday night with your man then go partying with your girls on the Saturday. These beauties are from Charles Clinkard.

Whatever you're doing tonight, have fun! ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡

My pretty new iphone case

Thank you to Mr Nutcase who kindly sent me a pretty new case for my iphone. I could choose any photograph I wanted, which was then printed onto the cover. I decided to opt for an image by my favourite photographer, Nick Knight. I think this makes the case a lot more special and it gives me something pretty to look at.

The service was really fast and it was delivered within a few days of being ordered. The quality is great as well, the colours have turned out perfectly. It costs £14.95 which I think is really good considering that it's customised.
