Valentines in our house has always been quite a relaxed affair, Mark and I really enjoy spending the evening at home with a yummy meal, dessert and a movie it's much easier to do this instead of booking an evening out and to be honest the prices just seem to shoot up when you book a meal out on Valentines.. not that we don't like to treat ourselves but to be honest we just prefer time to ourselves in the comfort of our own home. In this post I wanted to talk you through my typical Valentines Day and what we like to get up to plus give you some ideas if you plan on staying in too.
First of all I always love to have a pamper, I run a relaxing bubble bath and use all of my favourite beauty products to really make me feel special there really is nothing like having a lovely bath and that feeling you get afterwards when you are just smelling beautiful and feeling gorgeous it really lifts my mood especially as a mummy and a pregnant lady! I then like to continue the pampering and move to my beauty room where I get dolled up for my evening, although we aren't going out I think it's still nice to make an effort and it's one part of the day I really enjoy so I usually grab some new makeup and some old favourites to really get glam and then pop on my favourite perfume along with a new outfit.
When it comes to food I will admit I'm not the best cook however I do like to rustle up something different and delicious for a Valentines treat so this year I'm going to be making a wonderful meal from Morrisons, Morrisons offer meal deals for just £15 where you can basically choose a three course meal including refreshments and desserts to suit you the meal deal includes a starter, a main, one side, a dessert and a bottle of wine or a non-alcoholic alternative. I created a video showing you how I prepared this meal and I'm definitely going to grab another meal deal for Valentines Day this year because it was so easy and quick to put together and it also tasted delicious I honestly couldn't believe the quality and how easy it was to get from our local store along with treats, flowers and gifts.
Check out my video below to see how we will be enjoying our Valentines Day this year, I hope it inspires you and you enjoy it.
What have you got planned this Valentines day?
