This year, like many, I like the idea of being my own Valentine.
Funny? Well, the reason being, there is never enough time to spoil and take care of us – so why not on Valentine’s Day. Some celebrate and some don’t and some feel it is a meaningless and commercial holiday; others put much store on this day.
Either way, I am suggesting we have a treat day for us and let the rest take care of itself.
What do you think?
When I saw the interpretation of Valentine’s Day from Grandiflora – the multitude of roses in shades of pink and red – I did feel that girly romantic twinge. There is nothing like an excessive bunch of flowers to stir the heartstrings. It only reinforced my thoughts and spoiling myself is high on the agenda. Not only will I be pampered but I’m going to have it in a rainbow of reds and pinks.
This Valentine’s Day, Be Mine
Really, some new silk PJ’s and a pair of cosy run around slippers would be a great idea. There is nothing more luxurious feeling than new lingerie and fragrance. I found this fabulous kimono jacket which I would love to through over. Well, over anything really.
Ever since we took over La Maison du Village (there is a Diptyque shop in the hotel), I have been ready to burn their Rosa Valentina.
Do I need an excuse for a new handbag? Never.
Look for creative inspiration from one of my favourite photographers? Yes, most certainly.
And a long, long soak in the tub with face mask and as many bubbles as it (and I) can take.
If only every day were Valentine’s Day. I am ready, set and racing towards the 14th. xv
