Valentines Night In Essentials

Valentines day is tomorrow, and I'm sure you all have plans to smother your latest squeeze, besties, family with tokens of your love. But if you are anything like me the standard dinner and drinks has become more of a routine than 'a special night out'. Does that give you an excuse to sit in your sweats all evening? NO. Whether you are spending the night in with your special someone or are hanging out with the girls there is always time for a little pampering and self love! Here are my 'Valentines Night In' essentials to make sure you have a romantic evening at home too!

  • There is nothing that screams Valentines Day like some Lacy Red Underwear. I don't know about you but new, matching underwear makes you feel like you've got your shit together and on top gives you a confidence boost that will only make you feel sexy. 
  • Get out that perfume you have been saving for a special occasion. Wearing an unfamiliar scent will make you more enticing to your other half as it is not your everyday staple. A great excuse to ask for a new bottle and if they've bought it for you, chances are they will love it too. 
  • Killer Red Heels. Need I say more?
  • Valentines is the perfect time to have bright red nails without the risk of looking hooker-esque. Red not your colour, try a pink, purple or gold to match the lovey-dovey theme just as well. 
  • Finish of your look with a red lip! It will draw your dates attention to your lips, but can make your teeth look brighter (blue under toned). Be sure to use a lip liner to stop it bleeding around your lips and maybe a swipe of lipcote just to make sure it doesn't end up on your teeth!

*Moroccan Rose Rose Diffuser & Votive Set// £20
  • Now to set the mood. I think that candles and reed diffusers are a great way to make your evening cosy and romantic, especially with rose scents. This Moroccan Rose Linea Set* from House of Fraser is beautiful, the scent is strong enough to fill the room with out being overpowering. The candles smell heavenly and the little diffuser lasts for a really long time. This is the perfect set to pick up for valentines and a good chance to try out a few new candles! 
  • Chocolate, nothing says 'I love you' more. And they are in a heart shaped tin? How romantic.
  • Last but not least, WINE. Well anything that you both enjoy drinking, you can't have a valentines dinner without it right?
