I don't really like Valentines day and I think it is all a bit of a silly scheme, but you can't deny there are some cute things out to buy at this time of year (boohoo), and here are some of the things I love:
Lazy Oaf's card range... but then again, when isn't that shop cute? These were the ones I liked best.
These clever, witty mints featuring Klimt's artwork "The Kiss." philosophersguild.com
Cue Iggy Pop.. CANDY CANDY CANDY...
Also cake, but off the top of my head, I can't think of any particular song to do with cakes?! (this is so cute though) Roses, of course- THESE ARE £100 THOUGH, ONE HUNDRED POUNDS FOR FLOWERS. (I think I'd cry if someone did get me these, and not really happy tears)
And oh I do like cute little fake flowers, they stay forever and are 10 times more useful (especially with creative projects)
I'd much rather the candy option, and aww Woolworths does still exist online, and does pick n mix- how odd is that!
Or look.... aw a personalized love smoothie. (Innocent smoothies)
These surprise Valentines socks are a really sweet idea- happysocks.com Then, I found this- which IS PERFECT, especially for those (like me) who are alone this year (and every year previous, hohoho) It's the best mug ever, featuring the King of romance, Henry. When you pour in boiling water his wives gradually disappear in order of him wedding them!! (and that's meant to be a working gif showing them disappearing, so sorry if it doesn't work) (I've never tried a gif in a post before)
Semi linked to my lack of romance was this cute little incident of last week..
It was my friend's birthday so we went round a few shops, and found ourselves stumbling into an old antiques thing spread into loads of different rooms, one filled with rails of old clothes which I don't think anyone ever does try on because once we'd found some things and asked for the changing rooms we were lead out back to the scummy staff toilets- LOOK at the dress though, it was a perfect 60's bridesmaids dress, and I would actually wear it as my Wedding dress, it was so pretty and soft and reminded me of a mix of Miss Havisham and Cecelia Lisbon, I could've walked right out of the shop in it had it not been for the £22 price tag.
(but going where I rightly belong, I climbed onto the pile of rubbish in the odd changing area, for this photo) Anyway, single or taken- I HOPE YOU HAVE A REALLY CUTE DAY TOMORROW.
Maybe Morrissey might pop in last minute for me? (there is hope, and a light that never goes out)
