Valentine's Day

This day as we know it, is associated with romance and over centuries has evolved into an occasion in which lovers express their adoration for each other by presenting flowers, sweets and greeting cards.  We also recognize this holiday with hearts, doves and that figure of cupid floating around the 'holiday' aisle.  Some people love this holiday and others, well not so much...  I'm sort of that in-between person, but don't get me wrong I still expect (said as nicely as possible...) my hubby to buy me a gift (which is usually not flowers, candies or cards) for Valentine's Day.  Hubby, I hope that you went shopping if not you have a few hours to pull out the credit card.  He knows that 'gift giving' is my spiritual gift, so none the less, a gift is much appreciated.  We'll be celebrating this Valentine's Day at home with chocolate fondu by the smoldering fire place.  Sounds good to me!  We plan to venture out on a fabulous date night this Friday for post Valentine's Day when I will wear my new peplum dress (as mentioned in My Valentine Attire post).

For those of you who celebrate this holiday (or not) with LOVE what plans do you have for this day?

I was feeling quite glamours while creating this set, but I'd love to hear what you think?  PS - I can attest to all of the perfume and makeup because I wear all of those brands with much love!


  1. Ooo fondue - yum! We're making pizza, drinking wine and being completely lazy tonight.

  2. This sounds like an amazing plan to me! Fondue by the fire, awww :) And I´d love to see that fabulous peplum dress on you!

    happy Valentine´s day!

  8. Yeah I wouldn't mind owning all of those items :)

    Happy VDay!

  9. HOT. Love the outfit and wish I had somewhere to wear it, too! I think I'm re-wearing my NYE outfit tonight for our V-Day date. Yes, we totally feed into dinner with the masses but what can I say? We both love to eat yummy food and a will hop on any chance to have a "special" night to go out and do that. It's always a surprise where we go though, so that's fun (and somewhat nerve-wrecking!) for me. :)

  10. Loved visiting your blog...you have a great sense of style!

    Hope you'll stop by my blog and say hello! :)

  11. Gorgeous set! I think Valentine's day is a good idea; it's great to have a day to celebrate your love for family and friends (although you should be doing that every day!) but the media/society has really commercialized it to the point where if you're single on valentine's day, it's impossible to be happy! Completely not true! That's why I'm on the fence when it comes to Valentine's day, but I had fun and received loads of presents from my friends. <3



little eloquent notes... ❤
