EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR THE PERFECT VALENTINE’S / GALENTINE’S DAY – AND WHY I’M ANTI V-DAY

IMG_2176Ah, February 14th, Valentine’s Day – you either love it or hate it. Some see it as a day to spoil your other half with flowers and pressies or some believe it to be another commercialised date on the calendar, conning you into spending money on overpriced flowers and tacky teddy bears.

I stand on the latter side. I believe you should treat your partner throughout the year with little surprises to show you care rather than on just one day and I would rather stick pins in my eyes than go out for dinner on V-Day surrounded by soppy couples and eating an overpriced Valentine’s Menu. So, this year we will be doing what we always do – spending it in a typically anti-valentine’s way as possible, whether it’s playing pool in a dodgy bar with a few beers or a takeaway and a Netflix binge… and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

SAYING THAT, as pink is my favourite colour, I do love all the valentiney stuff that is in the shops. So in a true anti-Valentine’s fashion, instead of spending money on my other half, i’ll spend it on myself! Whether you are coupled up in luurve and want to make yourself irresistible, or spending it having a pampering sleepover with the girls, I have compiled a few of my Valentines picks…
