To stay in or go out this Valentines Day

Stay at home or paint the town red, which do you prefer?

Staying in allows you the chance to experiment on new recipe’s and to play with something fun. We love this simple yet seductive desert of  White Chocolate Cherries. You could also use strawberries.


Recipe here.

It also allows you to get creative and decorate your own quiet evening with your own personal touch.



Can’t afford a spa visit – there are loads of massage candles available now! We love the Africology Chakra Candles to relax and unwind at home – plus you’ll get plenty of massage time out of one candle. You don’t have to set only set the tone on Valentines Day.

Going out allows you to really dress up though and paint the town red! :)  8187386889_4bea01f2df_b


Just in time for Valentines Day, wee love the new Smash Box “Love Me” Collection for glossy lips that sparkle or classic red, kissable lips.


It is also so spoiling to treat ones self once in a blue moon, and Valentines Day is the perfect excuse. What about a dual massage and bubbles to round off?
