My Valentines!

valentines, flowers, carnations, present, gift, girl,

So seeing as I bought me and my boyfriend Top Gear tickets for Valentines day (but on the 20th), it was up to him to arrange something to do on Valentines night for us. Whereas he usually would leave it for me to decide! We're such foodies, especially for any American or Italian food so he booked us to go to a American diner in town. We rarely go to town for anything other than uni/night out, so a meal out seems quite special seeing as it's rare to go there! I usually post heaps of my meals out pictures on Instagram (here), but thought it would be nice to do a little more in depth post seeing as it's a special occasion (also our 5th Valentines, scary!).

We don't do big gifts any more as our birthdays aren't too far away and it's ever so slightly a waste of money, but it is a good excuse to get dressed up and go for a meal. So he booked us to go to Coast2Coast, which I have always wanted to go to so I was really excited.

The doughnuts were actually the yummiest things ever (and so was the mango daiquiri)! A lot of the desserts available had nuts in, which I found a little strange, but this was one of the few which didn't. I would have taken photos of David's food if he hadn't already ate the majority haha. If you love the american diner esque restaurants you will really enjoy this one!

I saw someones blog post of the new George collection at Asda, and this was one of the dresses that was available and I instantly loved it! And for only £14 it was an absolute bargain (here). It has a body-con dress underneath and a cropped striped top attached to it, which has a lovely open back to it which shows the black dress under it. The George website has this handy little tool where you can put your measurements in and it will recommend you the best size to buy, I could probably had done with a size 8 on the waist but unfortunately my chest got in the way of that!

I got this Mac Ruby Woo set for Christmas, but I've never really wore it that often yet so I was excited to break it out. Ruby Woo has a very matte finish which can be really drying if you don't wear a primer under it, but the gloss makes it feel so much smoother and isn't sticky! It is a bright blue toned red, so it isn't a colour for the fainthearted, but is amazing if you love a bold red lip. Who doesn't love a cliche red lip on Valentines?

not on the high street, card, valentines, shabby chic, thoughtful, new york

Last of all is the card I got from Not On The High Street for £7.50, I love this website for quirky ideas, cards and presents. You can customise this card to any place you want and you can also add two destinations if wanted, I chose one location which was New York. We are insanely sad we're home from there still and absolutely desperate to go back so I really wanted to incorporate that in the card. (Hope he appreciated my effort haha).

What did you do for Valentines day? I love reading what others have done on too, so feel free to leave your links below!

  2. Hey! Great post, and that dress looks lovely on you. I just started a blog and my first post is about George's spring/summer range, it'd be awesome if you had a look :)
