So this year on Valentine's day I am joining the single club despite having a boyfriend, as Alex is abandoning my all on my owney and jetting off on a skiing holiday! So this post is dedicated to all you single ladies out there, Valentine's is the perfect night to pamper yourself and even better if you have some single friends to join you. I (obviously) invited Polly round and we got our beautifying on with this awesome kit that Claire's put together.
Polly opted for the peel off mask and I the chocolate (both of which smelled amazing) and obviously I had to give myself a chocolate beard before covering my face. You can also indulge on mini creme eggs whilst waiting to wash/peel the masks off. Montagne Jeunesse are always my first stop for face masks and are a steal at just £1.50!
Sitting and doing your nails can sometimes feel like a chore so it's nice to do them with a friend whilst catching up on your YouTube favourites, especially after browsing Pinterest to give you some ideas and with an assortment of pretty nail art which can be found in abundance at any Claire's - Polly opted for glitter while I went for nude with simple studs. (berry set, nail studs)
Despite having the M&S gift card we opted for a Dominos pizza for dinner, so bought ice cream & wine with it instead! Not the healthiest option but you're allowed to be naughty once in a while amIright?! We then bummed out on the sofas while watching We're the Millers, which neither of us had actually seen so we were both pretty chuffed with the DVD choice (hilarious movie btw!).
4. Unwind time
The best part about being with your girlfriends is of course, catching up and having a good chat so going to bed with a nice cup of tea is a great way to end the day. I also lit my special Love Potion candle from Flamingo Candles which smells incredible, like candy mixed with vanilla and the wax goes hot pink and super glittery when it burns which unfortunately doesn't show up properly in the photo! I'm so happy with it as I've wanted a Flamingo Candle for a while now and it's so good I'll definitely have to pick up some more.
I hope you enjoyed my post and it gave you some ideas for Valentine's day, I had so much fun and will definitely be having round some girlfriends when next friday comes round!
