The Brit Pack Valentine's Edition

I recently teamed up with some fabulous British bloggers to offer a huge giveaway. That's over now but it seemed a shame not to not to do something with them again as they were all such a pleasure to collaborate with and some of them are close friends. We've decided to keep our name the 'Brit Pack' and all create a post with the same theme, on the same day once a month. This months theme was an obvious choice and we have gone for 'Valentine's'.

I don't have anything heart print as I like to wear mainly darks and block colours but I certainly have enough heart accessories so this was a perfect time to get them out. I must apologise for the messy background and arm in the mirror, the storms have put a stop to any outdoor photos.The heart fairy lights were only £3 in Primark even even though I've got a set of fairy lights in my room already I couldn't resist them. You can never have too many fairy lights, right?


Dress: New Look
Shoes: Mel
Brooch: gift from Sarah

The necklace was a 21st birthday present from my family and always makes an appearance for special occasions. The shoes are from Mel and I had a pair in black first but caved and bought the pink and red pair too as they are a bit more fun.

My lipstick is a Superstay 24 in Red Passion by Maybelline.

The team at Ann Summers sent me a little Valentine's Day surprise in the post, I think I'm going to treat myself to a kimono style wrap/dressing gown in one of their stores so I can sashay around the house thinking I'm super glamorous.

I'm having a night in with the girls tonight with plenty of wine which is probably the best way to spend Valentine's Day. Hope you have a lovely day whatever you have planned.

  2. This is brilliant - a nod to Valentine's without being over the top, the accessories are just darling and you look adorable! I think the idea of the Ann Summers wrap sounds great, it is nice to waft around in something you hope the postie doesn't see you in now and again ;)
