Lifestyle Review: Valentine's Day Wishlist 2015

18 comments
The day that singles and our wallets dread will soon be upon us and I have completely fallen prey to it. Anything glittery or heart shaped goes a long way with me, and so, in true tradition - I thought why not make a wish list for such an occasion? Whether you're planning a Netflix binge or have something special planned with your friends or partner, I've picked out some of my favourite romance-inspired finds - here is my Valentine's Day wish list.

1. 'Pizza For Breakfast' Pyjamas - £28 from Topshop. I've become a bit of a PJ fiend lately and I can't seem to resist buying them. Nothing is more satisfying that putting on a fresh pair of Pjs and snuggling up with a movie marathon. And it has little love hearts on the bottoms! Pizza and love go hand in hand. 

2. "Hello You" Glitter Photo dome, £4 from Paperchase. Paperchase always have the cutest pieces for every time of year. I love this little frame! I'm always looking for trinkets for my desk and this is so 90's. 

3. Heart Narrow Belt, £2.99 from H&M An absolute bargain for this belt that can be worn all year round. I find I'm immediately draw to anything heart shaped and this is a cute way to accessorise.

4. Simpson's Valentine's Day Card, Etsy. I'm a card person. Every given occasion, I'm always in search for the perfect card and 9 times out of 10 I find it on Etsy. Etsy is always full of amazing handcrafted, personalised cards for any occasion. I found this awesome Simpson's card amongst others with all my favourite film and TV show references.

5. Instax Mini 8 Camera, £60-90, Amazon I've told myself I need to just man up and buy one. Jack and I booked our Disney holiday last week and I think it would be a really lovely way of logging our stay. Annoyingly, the film is approx £20 for a 10 pack which is pretty pricey on top of the cost of the camera...I will get one. 

6. Cat face mug, £12, Urban Outfitters Having sent close to £100 in Primark this month, I had to leave UO to stop me buying this but look how amazing! For all you crazy cat ladies out there, like myself, this is love.

7. SWIFTHEART Slipper Shoes, £26, Topshop Swift definitely springs to mind with these cute shoes. Very Taylor-esk. I love anything with a sweetheart design and they would make a perfect transition from smart to fashion wear. Very practical and pretty!

8. High Beam Highlighter, £19.50, Benefit Recently I was looking for a new highlighter and this one really impressed me. Despite an odd applicator (not to be confused with a nail varnish), High Beam gives an incredible, high reflective glow to the skin. At £19.50, its a more high end product but like with all Benefit items, it lasts and gives flawless results. 

9. Matte Lipstick in Chili, M.A.C Cosmetics, £15.50, If you can get your hands on it, Chili is a smouldering red shade to add to your collection. I have a million red lipsticks but this is a unique, deep red and it really caught my eye. You can't ever go wrong with M.A.C Matte lips. 

10. Scallop Cut Out Wrap Dress, £36, Topshop Everyone needs a little black dress on Valentine's Day for when all else fails. I love the scallop design on this and though the design is simple, I also think it is classic and a piece you can wear over and over again. The little cut-out shows just enough skin without being too over the top and I love it. 

So there you have it, my top Valentine's day picks! What are you hoping to receive this Valentine's? As for my plans this year, I have no idea but I'm just as happy having a lovely dinner at home with a movie as I am fine dining. Whatever you're up to this year, have a good one - leave me comments below! 

Lots of love,

  6. My boyfriend bought me an Instax mini for Christmas, you should definitely get one they are so good! I buy my film off of eBay, most eBay shops sell it for £16 for 2 packs of ten, but my friend found one that was £14 for 2 packs for her Instax - still pretty pricey but a bargain compared to other places!

    1. Yeah the film was the only thing annoying me haha I have several polaroid cameras but they're so bulky to take on holiday and so hard to find the film now. I like that with the instax you can control the light easier and work out what you're getting more then with the older polaroid cameras. I think everyone's convinced me haha x
