As someone who spent Valentine's day of 2011 cuddling my flatmates cat whilst said flatmate went out for a romantic dinner with her boyfriend, I've got to say at the ripe old age of twenty-three and a bit, I've actually never had a valentine, not even a secret card squashed into my locker at school. So when Anthropologie (aka the store that is basically my Pinterest board dreams manifested) asked me to join their Seceret Valentine campaign, I almost dropped my biscuit into my tea from happiness.
Anthropologie gave me the name of a blogger and their blog and asked me to choose a few things for them to be sent their way for Valentine's day, and vice versa! Since my secret valentine likes to read and is based in London, i thought i'd give her a book all about the hidden gems London has to offer, I also chose a candle she had put on a recent wishlist of hers, a Parisian themed ring holder (what says blogger more than anything Paris themed oui?), and a beautiful delicate mug, perfect for a nice cuppa, and those perfectly laid out instagram shots ;) Fingers crossed she loves everything I've picked out for her! It's always lovely when people love your presents!
What are your plans for Valentine's day? I think i'll take myself to Pattern Coffee in Kings Cross for one of their incredible coconut milk mocha's and then maybe head to the breakfast club for a solo stack of pancakes, sometimes you just have to grab the bull by it's horns and be your own bae ahaha! :')
