Valentines Day is the one day of the year when you all declare your love to your other half or a admirer / crush.
It is very hyped up and retailers make things twice as expensive because they know you will spend it if you really want it. People go all slushy on social media and try to out do each other.
I guess this is the first year in ages that I’ve been in a relationship and other years I’ve just been ‘ oh it Valentine’s Day, how many cards will come through my door….zero 🙈
I think that yes it’s lovely to have a special day like we do for Christmas but blink and you miss it
I am a sucker however for a good old love song, so here’s a throwback playlist I found on Spotify
As I’m writing this it’s the day before Valentines. I won’t be seeing my boyfriend til the 15th so I’m going to make Valentines a self love day. So tonight I’m going to get everything ready to grab tomorrow.
This will include things such as
I could go well over the top but it’s just to make me feel good. I don’t know what the plans are when I see the other half. Just seeing him will be enough.
Hope you have a lovely day whatever you decide to do.
Have you ever been on a date and the person you thought you been talking to was just your type.
Whether you met them on a drunken night out and have arranged a first date via text or you have been online dating.
Then you meet up with them and they are nothing like you remember and or look nothing like their picture.
You get there and they are sat there smiling and you walk in like….
When you match with someone online or their profile seems appealing, so messages are exchanged and you start to find out about this person who is very easy on the eye.
Thing is, when you eventually pluck up courage to meet them it really doesn’t match up they don’t look like their photos and they were telling you a load of bull just to get a date…
I myself have been in some situations just like these and you just wanna run back out the door.
Some of you do and don’t look back, most of us would just sit down and feel so awkward for the duration.
I tell you if it was me I’d order my food and when it came out I’d have to do this to him
Dating can be so hard, and not knowing what you are letting yourself get into is kind of scary.
So my advice is… If you are going to date online or you’re just exchanging texts only tell them minimal details, don’t open your heart too much as you know it’ll get hurt. If you do want to meet them… Please take a friend and make sure they are in sight so you can leave swiftly if you feel really uncomfortable.
I truly believe that the heart chooses whoever it beats fast for, the one person who makes you have butterflies that feels so magical you don’t want it to go.
Some people have fallen in love many times and some just this once but let me tell you this
from the age of let’s say 15 looked at love like this: It doesn’t matter what gender you fall for, it’s the person, their personality, the way you get when you’re around them.
You just know and I don’t think anyone should ever feel like they can’t be in love with someone because they are the same sex, or a different race or religion.
Love feels the same no matter who it’s with

Stay true and be you ❤️

What does your Sunday look like…
Mine at the mo I’ve managed to get in and wash the mop, the dizziness is still there but I can get about a bit.
I’m now sat in the garden with the sun shining listening to ‘NOW 102’ on Spotify… Here’s the playlist if you wanna listen.
I’ve painted my nails a simple but different French manicure as you can see. Just fancied doing something other than plain colours.
I love the fact that I’ve got a summer dress on and it’s not even the middle of May yet. Not packed my woolys away yet cos knowing England we will need them again soon.
I’ll leave you with a summery quote to get you in the mood like me.

Just a heads up to those who like tuning into my podcast.
This weeks episode is now live to listen on the following links
Incase you hadn’t guessed what the topic was by the title its all about crushes and my views on who i think is a fitty and a quick q and a is in there for good measure.
I haven’t always been one of those people that say love yourself and all your imperfections. Truth is i used to hate mine and i couldn’t stand looking in the mirror, having my photograph taken, i really didn’t love myself at all.
These days though i really do appreciate my body and my outer appearance for what it is.
I bought this back along from Avon i think. I liked it said i love you 3 times around the ring. Reminded me of the lyrics from Natasha Bedingfields song – These words
I didn’t need someone else to buy it for me. It’s for self love that i now have for myself.
I couldn’t praise enough about loving who you are as it’s so horrible feeling like you are not pretty enough or not worth it.
Thanks for stopping by
