VALENTINE’S DAY 2021

Valentine’s Day 2021 was a different one! Whether you would have normally celebrated with your SO or treated yourself to a Galentine’s boozy brunch, this year was undoubtably different for everyone. I spent my day gearing up for an extra special trip to the local Costa Coffee drive thru for a 5* Gingerbread latte. Thinking that perhaps a take-away coffee was a bit sad, I decided to fashion a yummy homemade Afternoon Tea. Miniature Victoria sponge cakes and Mumma Jo’s 5* cheese scones were undoubtably the stars of the show. 

Despite not being able to go anywhere, this red Zara Love collection was too irresistible not to try. I will let you in to a secret…I wore a cream sweatsuit all of actual Valentine’s with minimal make-up, but shooting these delectable red pieces earlier in last week gave me the minuscule of escapism that I craved.

In years to come, how will you look back on your lockdown Valentine’s Day?!

VALENTINES & GALENTINES GIFTING

This year more than ever we need to spread the love! While we cannot spend time with those we love the most, this Valentine’s & Galentine’s Day gifts can make all the difference. I’ve put together my favourite gifts from luxury to high-street. You can also find a treasure trove of personalised options on small business run websites such as ‘Not On The High Street’ and Etsy. Roses are a must for 14th Feb; perhaps you could get in touch with your local florist to support the small businesses around who may be struggling, if this service is not available for you see below for a list of online florists. You cannot go wrong with the classics; perfume, flowers, chocolates and jewellery, however niche gifts are thoughtful too…anything from a heart painted plate to a sensual torso candle. All of these items are available online. Love is in the air!

CHELSEA PEERS ZEBRA PRINT PYJAMAS

I was gifted these Chelsea Peers pjs for Christmas and oh my…I could live in them! They’re beyond chic and totally appropriate for going out in, right?! The zebra print is unique and playful, monochrome is my go-to. I’m quite picky with pjs as I cannot stand when they pull or feel tight; no-one wants to wake up in the middle of the night to your PJ bottoms half twisted and crazily uncomfortable. Although I love the idea of silk pyjamas, I don’t like the lack of movement; this pair is 95% Polyester & 5% Elastane. The material has a wonderful stretch and feels luxuriously silky smooth. The pyjama designs are genius; extremely tasteful. The Chelsea Peers brand was created due to a gap in the market for luxury lounge/sleepwear – ‘The loungewear you can do nothing in, but also wear to host a party. Alas, Chelsea Peers was born!’. While we are still currently in a lockdown in the UK, treat yourself to a pair – it’s essential!
