Valentine's Day - Let's get Cupid a pair of new glasses

Yes, it's that time of the year again, the most commercialized day of the year: Valentines Day. I'll be straightforward, I'm not a fan of Valentines day, rather, I don't really care. Not because I'm hating on all the couples or anything, I'm happy in my current situation, I'm seeing someone, it's chilled, all is good. In fact I think Valentine's day is a nice occasion to celebrate love and remind those you care about that you love them (which, truthfully, should be done daily, but people like to celebrate things rarely, once a year, when they're told to celebrate it... humans, tsk.. ). Anyway, enough rambling, essentially I think Valentine's day is nice for the idea of letting the person you love know it, but I do think it's become waay too commercialized. It's been over a week that everyday on the radio, EVERY-SINGLE-STATION goes on about what will you get your loved one, what will you do in the evening, this place is organizing this, that place is organizing that. Well, what if I just want to remind the person I love, I love them, by cooking dinner and cuddling on the sofa? The celebration of love should be advertised, not the material side, the "buying of stuff". At least this is how I see it, what are your thoughts?
In any case, here's some inspiration for a pretty outfit, whether you're going out with your loved one, or with your friends. With a little black dress you never go wrong, add some pretty jewelery to give some light, and off you go! If you want to do soemthing a little different, I've fallen in love with this cute little pink dress, the black lace detail is lovely and very elegant!

But, if you decide to celebrate Valentine's day with everyone's favourite boys, Ben&Jerry, then you should get your inspiration from the wonderful Bridget Jones ;) Oh and if you're just a bit like me, make sure you have Ben&Jerry in at least in three different flavours! That's what I did last year, we had one fabulous night, the three of us, I tell you ;)

Lots of Love to you all <3 br="">

  2. LOL@ The Ben and Jerry's bit! The pink dress is beautiful!!!

    I agree with everything you've stated. While I'm all for a reason to celebrate, I think the subject of love is something that should be taken into account everyday. The flowers I get "just because" mean so much more to me than the roses I get on Valentines (not that I don't appreciate those, they're lovely). I think the jewelry commercials are the worst... I've never been a fan of anything generic or over price, always preferring simple but meaningful sentiment. And chocolate... Chocolate is always good. ;)

    Btw, I loved your comment... Secret love poems via email sounds amazing!!! I bet you couldn't wait to check your mail! Did you ever respond?
