Oh Valentines, sweet, sweet valentines.
Now, I have a truly remarkable husband, he is rather marvellous to me, but he’s not so great on the buying gifts and remembering special dates front. He leaves that to me. Which actually works out fine with me as it means I shop and he is happy to let me buy what I would actually like (within the realms of budget of course) So I think that’s pretty win win all round, don’t you?
This year the kind people at Rakuten introduced themselves to me. They sent me a good box of valentines goodies to help get me in the mood and let me choose a gift for myself this Valentines.. Take a look at these pretties…
Candles, hearts, sweets and choccies and then a little self preparation with some gorgeous body butter, red lipstick and red nails. Regardless of Valentines red nails and lips i think would be my signature. Instant mood lifters for me, making me feel so put together and just a little bit sassy 😉
With my voucher I considered treating Salvatore to a little treat, but then I got to browsing their amazing beauty selection and I found the stuff of beauty dreams…
A beautiful Dior palette and a Dior Addict mascara.
I had been after a travel palette like this for some time. I had one back when I was 18 and carried it in my handbag everyday, using it all the time for touch-ups. I saw this one and instantly knew it would be perfect. When we go away I don’t like to take away all my make-up (because quite frankly it would need an entire suitcase of its own), this palette has the perfect neutral colours that will work for day-to-night.
Its love at first sight.
My perfect Valentines.
