Despite feeling extremely ill and having to work in the morning, I had a lovely Valentine’s Day & wanted to blog photos to look back on and share what I did as well as the gifts given and received!
As I said I was in work from 7-12 and it was horrible because I am really sick but we had a little Valentine’s buffet of different sweet and savoury foods, I had one sandwich and then purely shortbread slices and chocolate (diet starts tomorrow?) and overall, it was an alright start to the day! My Mum text me when I was in work telling me I had a delivery. Silly me replies “I haven’t ordered anything” but it was a delivery of this Valentine’s bouquet from my boyfriend and they are so, so pretty! The bouquet is really big and just looks so lovely in my living room and makes me smile when I walk in to the room!
I have a little sister who is 6 and a little brother who is 4. A goal I set myself this year was to make a bigger fuss of different holidays with them just for fun really. So, I bought them these chocolate lollies and wrote a simple ? message on them to make them wonder who their secret admirer is! They loved it and they both gave me a rose! It was really sweet and Cordell did the whole gesture of hiding it behind his back first and everything – so cute.
I made these peanut butter cookies for my boyfriend when I finished work. I got the recipe from the blog For The Love Of Blonde and then decided to coat them in Dairy Milk chocolate – not very tidily!
I set a £15 present limit on presents this Valentines with my boyfriend because one, I think the day is more about spending it with loved ones as opposed to spending lots of money. Two I’m poor and three Valentines is so hard to buy for males so I thought I would make it fair!
My present to Niall is basically a Sainsbury’s advertisement. I bought him the Straight out of Compton DVD because he had said the week before he wanted to watch it and it’s something we could watch together. Chocolate because who doesn’t like chocolate and he likes peanut butter and then this Couples quiz set because lately we like playing little games, quizzes and the favourite Heads Up!
I do really struggle with Valentines and just with my boyfriend in general to be honest present wise so this was my just over £15 present to Niall. It bugs me because if I was working full time and had a normal income, I genuinely think I would be the best at gift giving but I guess I have to save all my ideas for full time income Kaiesha!
Then as if the flowers weren’t enough… *snap gift bag* the Tom Bingham book and the perfume were my additional presents! (I bought myself the cute memory frame the day after because it was £2.40 reduced from £8)
Niall bought the book as a late present for me getting in to university to study law and he bought the perfume because he had read my perfume wishlist! I was so surpised because it surpassed the £15 limit and HOW DID HE KNOW? I have only recently began telling people / being more open with my blogging so I completely forgot he would have read my wishlist. I was really shocked and as anybody who receives something they have wanted for a long time, really happy!
*rose from my siblings* I absolutely loved my presents but my favourite was definitely my card. It has a really sweet message inside and that to me outdoes the rest because I am extremely sentimental and it’s just super duper cute. Unlike the term super duper.
Finally we went out for a lovely dinner and it was really nice although as I said I felt so poorly. We did eat a main course, we didn’t just go out for bread and dessert haha I just forgot to take a picture! I was boring and had fish and chips because I didn’t want anything too hot and heavy if you know what I mean because of the way I felt so I thought fish and chips were just light and as I said… Diet starts tomorrow.
Overall I had a really nice day and was extremely spoiled! I wanted to take photos of my outfit and makeup but I felt far too rough to pose! How was your Valentines?
