well happy valentines day ladies .....
as  always my man SPOILT me! this year he had no help from his mother (so im well proud of him)
i was at work and i had just finished telling the girls there wouldnt be anything special this valentines since we were 'just doing cards', when my deputy manager walked through the door with a huge black box from interflora and said "its for you".  

a bouquet a red roses.

when i arrived back to his  after work he gave me the sweetest wee card he had picked out...
he even wrote his own little verse inside! Too give it a more personal touch x

i got a compare the meerkat alexander toy as i think theyre so sweet (i already own two other ones) and taken out for a meal.

getting glammed up! ...

i wore a red dress from h&m, black court shoes from newlook and a black cardigan from F&F.

makeup ...

it costs £19.50 for a 30ml tube. it comes out as a white creamy formula but applies evenly and you get a better result using a foundation brush rather than your finger tips.i really liked this primer it took away the shiney look i sometimes end up with and kept my make up on longer! worth it girlies!

it costs £9.99 for a 30ml tube, however Boots usually do 3 for 2 offer. i get this in beige linen 50. i am quiet pale skin so i wanted a foundation that looks natural and flawless and this little highstreet beauty does the trick! i like it because its very light and you can build up the colour. a little amount goes a long way but id definetly recommend wearing a primer underneath just so it lasts longer throughout the day without needing touch ups.

We went to a gorgeous italian called ~ La Favorita in Edinburgh which we went to on our first date back in 2009. we recieved a complimentry cocktail on entry and we then had a 3 course meal and drinks. i tried their innocent passion non alcholic cocktail and it was very yummy! after we got the bill we recieved two little balls which when you opened them they had a heart chocolate inside! really nice touch to the end of the meal, i'd recommend anyone to try this restaurant as the staff are very socialable and friendly and the food is gorgeous and it doesnt take long for it to arrive!

      My Valentine's was a little bit sad since my boyfriend is in another country and we were dealing with 13hour time difference and his studies. We just went on a Skype date for a couple of hours. Talked a lot, gave virtual hugs and kisses and he made a little shrine of our picture and took a photo of it and sent it to me with a message. :) That's how my Valentine's went.

    2. Aw that's lovely! It just shows what true love is made of being in different countries and still able to work out how to spend valentines together! :) xoxo
