Although it’s not quite Valentines Day here in the US, it is back home in Australia so I think that gives me a good enough excuse to post this now. I’ve never been a huge lover of Valentines Day, not that I don’t appreciate getting presents for no reason (what girl doesn’t?!), I have always thought it has been a bit of a gimmick. However, when my boyfriend came home tonight with chocolates, red tulips and a card with a puppy on it (always my favourite!) after I had just sliced my finger open with a bread knife and was sooking, V Day instantly became my new favourite day of the year.
In keeping with this and because I was suddenly in such a good Valentines mood, I thought I would put together what I believe are essentials for all girls to have today.
When it comes to beautifying ones self on a day like today, you can never go passed the classic red lip and matching red nails. Teamed with your favourite and best lingerie such as the ones featured here by Victoria’s Secret, your partner will be thrilled he (or she) made the decision to go out and buy you flowers/chocolate/candy (the list can really go on for a while). Spritz yourself with your signature perfume (I have always been in love with this perrfume L’eau D’Issey by Issey Miyake), and your partner will be thinking all his Christmases (or Valentines Day’s) came at once! Chocolates, scented candles and a great bottle of wine will also be making an apprearance during my Valentines.
