What I'm buying myself for Valentine's Day

Honestly, I'm not totally sure, but if I've set it up correctly this may have affiliate links in it... basically, if you click on something and buy it I get a teensy bit of money - if it works...

Look, the husband and I don't really go in for Valentine's Day. We love each other and all that, but we'd rather just go on Date Nights when we're both in a happy mood and have childcare...

That said, I'm all for buying myself treats - there is nothing nicer than a beautiful parcel appearing occasionally and realising - oooh, that's for me! With that in mind - here's my pick of my favourite things at the moment...


1. Boden Valerie Jersey Dress

I love the back of this dress, and it's got a Breton Stripe. You could dress it down with a leather jacket, or dress it up for #datenight. Heavenly. Also, how beautiful is the styling of it in this image with those red shoes?!

Marks and Spencer Leather Block Heel Brogue Shoes

Ah, these shoes. I've seen them everywhere and I cannot resist a brogue, let alone a metallic brogue...

3. Bravissimo Freya Fearne Bra

When you're "blessed" with curves like mine, finding a bra that fits, doesn't cost the earth and makes you feel damn hot is not easy. I love Freya bras and think the colours and pattern of this one would look awesome!

4. Sarah and Bendrix Moon and Star Stud Earrings

I have my ears pierced twice in each ear, and would love to play around with the colour combos and shapes of these. Plus I am kinda obsessed with the effect of the moon on us all... It's also lovely to be able to #shopsmall and #shoplocal!


5. Sarah and Bendrix 10 Reasons Why I Love You Cards How gorgeous are these? Plus I've accidentally chosen something that is Valentine Themed...I would love to send one of these a day to J during a happy, loved-up time...

I mean, sure. I already have this in grey. But this is pink and isn't the scoop-neck version I own (just in case my husband's reading...) Gemma is also a goddess, inspirational, funny, and the best Instagram Stories out there.

I love LIPSTICK (and you can read why here). I've just started to experiment with properly lining my lips before applying, and it is making a real difference. This lipstick is such a classic, and looks good on pretty much anyone, even those who think they "can't wear lipstick..."


8. Boden Printed Jumper - if life brings you lemons, and all that. This would go with EVERYTHING and makes me happy - what's not to love?!

9. Jen Sincero You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life

Anything with "badass" in the title has me feeling intrigued...I've heard so many good things about this book and love reading, so this will be a must-buy (or borrow from the library - I do love a library).


How about you? What treats would you buy yourself? Any of these, or something quite different? I'd love to know in the comments below!
