How can it be Valentine’s Day already?
The start of the year flies rapidly for me. We celebrate New Year followed on the heels is my daughter’s birthday and very shortly after is mine. This year we are also excited to celebrate an engagement, a new baby and a 30th; the year is running away with me not to mention my excitement levels are on overdrive.
Truth be told, I haven’t even given Valentines a mere thought.
I believe in appreciating each other every day – as much as humanly possible – rather than on a specific day of the year. It’s a tall order because nobody likes their partner all day every day but I do think being spoilt and made to feel special when we least expect it is the greatest romance of all.
Which is not to say a huge bunch of fabulous roses would not be appreciated but they are not necessary. I love surprises when that’s what they are, a complete stunner. Like this years’ birthday – mine surprised me away on holiday with a party for our friends in the best venue in town, a very unique cowboy bar. For a girl with nothing to do with prairies and cowboys, this was a very fun evening. Tartan, tall hats and jeans – although I didn’t quite follow orders – plenty of shots and a whole heap of laughs made for one of the best nights ever.
This year, like many years I am taking matters into my own hands and treating myself to a new lip wand. This one is the dream and the colours – can’t stop at one. I know you are thinking, more lipstick? Yes, is the answer.
There is nothing I love more than a new shade, a new texture and a mad dash of red or pink or even rose. So I’m not hesitating; not now not ever.
Have a fabulous day wherever you are and pop some colour on – you never know when you need to pucker up ;) xv
