With temptation to title this post 'Mis-beehiving' (pun of the year, right?) or the lyrics to 'Lady in red' becoming almost too much, I settled for some Valentine's related lyrics (yeah yeah, or Cher, whatever) for this lurve related post. With Valentine's Day two days away (in case you haven't seen the Moonpig adverts) it's the perfect excuse to dress in red and try and be all sassy. I jest. Well kind of. I know Valentine's is a bit of a love hate thing- but personally I'm quite a fan. I love the excuse to be completely soppy, eat endless amounts of ice cream/chocolate and watch a Hugh Grant film (and see Joe- hey Joe!) This is the kind of get-up I'd imagine would be the perfect Valentines outfit- whether bein' all Lady and the Tramp with some spaghetti and your other half or powering through some dance moves to 'Independent Women' with the ladies. The little red top and jeans combination is playful and cute without being too dressy, and teamed with a half up 'n' down beehive, it's got a little retro kick too, which gets a thumbs up in my books. IMG_9400p IMG_9396p IMG_9409p IMG_9420p
Additionally, to help get me feeling all sloshy, Inter flora kindly sent a pretty darn beautiful bouquet to my house, along with some delicious hazelnut and chocolate chocolates (someone knows my Nutella obsession) which made me feel pretty special indeed. Now, I've never heard to buy a bouquet on Valentines day, but from what I've seen it ain't cheap (I've seen flowers for about £400- jeepers). So when checking out the site I was bowled over by the value of their packages and the lovely things you can get for your money, with a bodacious bunch coming in at under £40- not badio! I also wanted to introduce you to some VERY special shoes (wow, girliest sentence ever). I'd been saving up for these for a little while, and in love with them since I first set eyes on them so after I accidently passed the shop, tried them on in the last size (which, of course was mine) and put them on hold- I knew it was meant to be. After pretty much getting the seal of approval from my savings/parents I did it. They are the biggest investment purchase I have ever made (and probably will for a LONG time), but know that they're a real special staple and that I will wear them forever- so it's ok, right? Right. Expect to see a lot more of these pretty kitties!
