After my previous post about my birthday, this might seem like I’m spamming you a bit with my life story, but I promise it’ll be back to more diverse posts soon!
Yesterday was Valentine’s Day, something which I have come to enjoy after four consecutive years coupled up. This is my third Valentine’s with my boyfriend Matt, and it doesn’t seem like that long at all! I love to celebrate occasions like this, and so we always do cards and gifts, and we try to make something of the day. This year, I got Matt a Jack Wills jumper he had been wanting, and a cute mug with ‘You’re My Favourite’ written on it :’) Matt got me some blue flowery TOMS, which are soooo pretty, and two books which I’ve been wanting, the beauty and lifestyle guides by Fleur de Force and Tanya Burr, which I am really looking forward to reading. We’ve always been pretty good at getting each other great presents! We decided just to do brunch out this year, and so we went to an awesome place in town which does all day brunch. The food was so good, and Matt particularly liked that he could get a tapas dish alongside his brunch! We had a wander around the shops, then headed home. For dinner, instead of splashing out on an expensive dinner, we got Chinese takeaway instead, which is my favourite! Yum 🙂 We watched Take Me Out and some other equally non-classy TV programmes, and just had a relaxed, comfortable night in (maybe with a glass of wine. Or two…). It was actually really nice! A slightly alternative but equally as special way to spend Valentine’s Day with the person you love <3
