Valentine’s Day Dining

*Collaborative post.


Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Hope you are all having a lovely day celebrating the day of love wherever you are. I like to celebrate love everyday and not just on Valentine’s Day. But it is great to have a day dedicated to love. It has been a good day for us here. Had some quiet lunch with M at Gusto, which is one of my favourite Italian restaurants. The food was yummy and we had a great time. It is always good to take out time to spend with your spouse alone, and we enjoyed our date lunch.

Another part of Valentine’s Day I like is the love theme gifts. I love giving and receiving gifts. So Valentine’s Day is another excuse to do just that. Flowers, perfumes and chocolates are popular gifts on Valentine’s Day. I got my bouquet of flowers as well as other gifts and I love that about the day as well. Also, I am looking forward to putting my feet up and doing nothing dinner wise. M is on duty tonight in the Kitchen Warehouse and I am eager to see what he comes up with. There is nothing sweeter than when you get a well cooked home meal you didn’t make. Being catered to feels amazing after a very busy week with the kiddies.

My only job is to get the Kitchen Units organised so he can find what he needs to make a yummy dinner. He has some Hello Fresh recipes and ingredients we got the other day, and they look very tasty. I can’t wait.

Product Review – Narciso Rodriguez Eau de Parfum

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I have started thinking of great gifts to give. If you are like me, you would have started planning your gifts as well. The January sale is still on, so this is the best time to grab as many bargains as possible, including gifts for Valentine’s Day. This Narciso Rodriguez Eau de Perfume would make a lovely gift for a special woman in your life. It is a fragrance that is loved by many people around the world, and I only had to take 1 look at it to see why.

This perfume was launched in 2016, so it is a fairly new fragrance. It is a feminine, sensual fragrance and it smells amazing. I am a huge fan of this fragrance. The fragrance is very floral, very fruity.

I really can’t fault  Narciso Rodriguez Eau de Parfum. It is one of my favourite scents. You can grab a 30ml bottle for £41 and 50ml bottle for £60 (prices vary slightly with different retailers). Many may find this perfume pricey, but I believe it is worth every penny. You have to smell it, to believe it.

10 Ways to Show Love this Valentine’s Day

It’s February and everyone’s mind is on Valentine’s Day. Aside from being a day for lovers, I believe that Valentine’s Day is a day when we can show love to those around us. That includes your family and friends. This Valentine’s Day try something different and reach out in love to those around you.

Here are 10 creative ways to spread that love this Valentine’s Day.


Write a ‘thank you’ note

There’s nothing as important as showing those you love how much you appreciate them for being a part of your life. This Valentine’s Day, write a ‘thank you’ letter to those you care about. Write out just exactly what you appreciate about them.


Plan a special meal with your loved ones

Let’s face it: food is a great way to bring people together. This Valentine’s Day, plan a special meal with those you care about. It’s not only a good excuse to have a good time but it can turn into a moment where you can create wonderful memories. And food has a way of doing just that.


Tell those you care about how much you love them

This is similar to writing a ‘thank you’ note. The only difference is that you tell others how much you care about them face-to-face. It makes it really special and more personal. Visit those you care about and tell them how much you love them. Those three words (I love you) said from the heart are so special.


Buy your loved ones something special

Now when I say “something special” I don’t mean something expensive. I mean something that is thoughtful no matter how small it is. For example, a picture frame with a picture of your whole family is something your parents will appreciate. A simple rose is also very special. What is important is that it comes from the heart.


Give a warm hug

You have no idea what kind of problems people go through on a daily basis. Depression, anxiety and loneliness are just some of the problems majority of people go through. Sometimes a love-filled hug is all they need to make their day a little brighter.

Reach out to someone in need

If you think that Valentine’s Day is only for those you love then you are wrong. It is a day when you should also reach out to those who have no one to love and care for them. This Valentine’s Day, plan a visit to old people’s home or a homeless shelter and show them love, support and reassurance.


Do a random act of kindness

What’s one thing you can do for someone to make their day? Offer to do the dishes. Carry the bags. Do the shopping. Clean the house. Pick your loved one up from work. Take the dog for a walk this time. Do something thoughtful this Valentine’s Day.


Get flowers and chocolates

This has become a cliché but it is still a favourite on Valentine’s Day. Carefully pick beautiful roses or just one rose. Accompany them with your loved one’s favourite chocolates. But most of all, give them with loads of love straight from the heart.


Plan a special outing with your loved ones

Why not spend Valentine’s Day with your loved ones? Pick a lovely spot. It could be a nice restaurant or a little café in your neighbourhood. Use it as an opportunity to have fun, relax and share love.


Plan a surprise

Make Valentine’s Day fun by surprising your loved ones with something special. Is there something that someone you love and care about has been longing to have? Is there a show or concert they want to go to? Give those you love little surprise gifts that they would never have dreamt they would receive from you.


How do you plan on showing love this Valentine’s Day?
