What I Brought Myself for Valentines…

8 Feb

Hello lovelies,

So yes, I decided to do a valentines post. After um-ing and ahh-ing over whether I actually wanted to to anything for Valentines, I decided I would but only because I have some bits and bobs to share with you all. Personally valentines day is great when your all disgustingly loved up, but when you’re not, you sort of it on the sidelines of the ‘love bubble’ feeling slightly bitter about the whole thing, secretly wishing you were part of it. (Or is that just me?) Personally I’m not completely for valentines day, I mean, if you love someone, you should show them you love them all year round and celebrate that love all year not just once a year, but then again this might just be me being bitter over the whole thing again.

Anyway, if you are in a relationship or not, you can still read my blog. 😉 So because I am a single pringle (other crisps are available), I decided to buy some presents for myself, not intentionally but I thought it fitted the post nicely, so let’s pretend they were especially for valentines.

5 out of 6 of the things I brought online. I know, not a big deal especially for an internet obsessed like myself, but I’ve always been scared of buying clothes online especially. Unless you’ve tried them on in the store firstly, it’s like playing clothes roulette. Am I a 8 or a 10? What if it’s too short? Then you have to wait for it to come, before realising you have been way too optimistic with your sizing! But luckily, all the times I’ve ordered anything online, nothing has had to be sent back. Oh’ and is it just me that gets slightly nervous when you get to entering the card details bit?

Boohoo.com Laura Checked Collar Print Dress~ £18


When I stumbled across this on the Boohoo.com website, I really loved it, the collar and the monochrome tartan print. I was actually just going to buy one of the Boohoo dresses, which was probably going to be the daisy print one, but I’m glad I got this one because monochrome never goes out of fashion. I am going to wear this next week, with tights and black heeled boots when I go out for a meal and then to the theatre with my Nannie. But hopefully this dress will see me through until the summer, as I can wear it without tights when it warms up.

Boohoo.com Delia Daisy Print Shift Dress~ £18


Shift dresses are in at the moment, so I thought I’d invest in it for spring/summer, the fabric itself is sheer and lightweight, so it will be perfect with sandals in the summer. The print is really individual and it just hangs really nicely, that can be dressed up too. I am really impressed the quality and considering I only ordered it yesterday night, the service is equally as fabulous.

Topshop Midi Ring~ £3


I’ve wanted a midi ring for a while now, so when I saw this in the sale I had to pick it up, but after wearing it as a midi I’ve realised I find them half way up my finger pretty annoying. So I wear it as a pinky ring instead, but I still love the vintage style design of this ring.

Stephanie Ever After Bow~ £5


Okay, this is isn’t a recent purchase but it’s sort of valentines theme right? When I stumbled across this hair accessory brand on Etsy, I fell in love with it. Over the Christmas period I wore it basically everyday, and just made any hair do 100% better. She has brought out an equally gorgeous and sparkly valentines range, and she also sells the best flower crowns you can just tell are made with love. I totally recommend you go and check this boutique on Etsy.

Plume Leotard~ £9.95

Plume Ballet Tights (in pink)~ £3.95


Both these items are from dancedirect.com, a go to website for all dancer looking for a bargain. This items are essentials for me because I’ve been borrowing my friend Lauren’s leotard and tights for weeks now, so now she gets a new pair of tights too. 😉 (Correction, she doesn’t. I only ordered one pair. Opps. Sorry Lauren.)

Hope you all liked the presents I brought for myself to make up for receiving nothing this year. Oh’ and if you aren’t in the sickening bubble known as love, you can be my valentine? 😉



(Pssst. It’s Maisie.)

    I did the exact same thing with my midi ring! I think they look quite cute on the pinky, though!
