Last Minute Valentine Ideas....

Valentine's Day comes around every year and I get a little feeling of excitement, a bit like I do if my birthday is on its way!! Why I have no idea because we never celebrate it, in fact I quote "Why would we celebrate bloody Valentine's day, it's a load of old tosh!!" My husband - ever the romantic! 

So as Valentine's day approaches I still get that feeling of anticipation will I get a card?  Will I get dinner cooked for me?! Futile hopes I tell you! So this year I have resorted to self gifting!! 

I have been after one of these gems for ages! It arrived last week and is entitled 'Lovebirds' - Quite apt I thought! This pressie received an almighty laugh from Owen (can you tell he thinks my choice of decor is hilarious sometimes?) Thankfully he doesn't protest too much! Although there's no accounting for taste!

Anyway here is the little beauty

Ibride have the coolest selection of images printed on trays.  A brilliant way of displaying art in a different way.

If you're reading this blog chances are you are as mad on Interiors as I am, so maybe the 'FOUR STEPS TO NO RULES INTERIOR COOL' Styling Workshop hosted at the homes of the renowned Instagrammers Lisa Dawson and Dee Campling.  Click here to sign up. The next available date is the 11th March at Dee's house in Cheltenham.

 

Otherwise if you're anything like us and don't really celebrate (in our case, at all, hence the self gifting!) then maybe a more understated gesture is the way forward! Slutty Chocolate Brownies! Providing you're not doing sugar free February that is!!
