Valentines ideas... for yourself

Are you spending Valentines at home, treating yourself? Well then here's my treats for you!

Step 1: Get home and put on your best slippers

These super-cosy fuggs  (fake uggs) are my favourite thing ever. I actually have 2 pairs, a black pair for wearing out (!) and a purple pair for home! (Sad I know). They are lined with super-cosy faux fur which keep your feet so warm, and have secret-support so are actually good for you!

This pair are £15 from Marks and Spencer


Step 2: Light a lovely candle

These beautiful candles are from St Eval Candle Company. They come in ivory or pink colours and also fragranced! You can choose between unfragranced, rose scented or lily of the valley scented. I have the pink rose scented one and it smells devine! I don't want to burn it - it's too pretty!



This candle is £18.80 from here


Step 3: Have a soothing bath



Valentines is a Monday so I'm sure the majority of us are going to be absolutely exhausted. Treat yourself to a bath, pour in Soap & Glory's Calm One, Calm All bubble bath (it's £5.11 from Boots). Sooth yourself with the lovely scent, exfoliate and moisturise when you get out.


Step 4: Make yourself a cheeky cocktail

This tasty looking tipple is the Cointreau French Kiss! It's a tutti-fruity cocktail and delicious! Hoe do you make it?

  • 37.5ml Cointreau

  • Flesh from 1 ripe large passion fruit

  • 15ml lemon juice

  • 5ml sugar syrup


Scoop flesh from the passion fruit and add all the other ingredients into a shaker. Shake and fine strain into a chilled Martini glass.

Hope you have a lovely night in

  1. All great tips. I've just thrown out my old Primarni fuggs so I might give M&Ss a go! And I love Soap & Glory products, I recently reviewed their face mask "No Clogs Allowed" on my blog, www.blahblahbecky.co.uk (I know you follow but just in case you missed it!).

  3. The candle is lovely. I want to burn it for the smell but it's too pretty. I'm having a confused battle!

    Glad to hear you live in your M&S slippers too! xxx

  5. Haha I love this post. I hate the cringey soppiness that is forced in our faces this time of year.
