Does anyone feel like it can be one seasonal thing after another? Christmas, closely followed by Valentines Day, then Easter. It’s easy to get sucked in and end up forking out a fortune for these seasonal holidays. Today I want to chat to you about ‘ The alternative Valentines Day ‘ date. Instead of heading out to your favourite restaurant and spending dollar on drinks and meals. Why not create the perfect night in for two?
Sometimes it’s difficult to getting round to having some special time with your partner. You might both work full time, have children or are just all round busy bodies. Making time with one another without a screen for entertainment can be so much more fulfilling for the two of you. I love having special nights every so often featuring lots of pampering. Making your bedroom a spa can be fun and a much cheaper alternative than spending a fortune at a spa – who’s with me?
VEGAN FRIENDLY BODY MASSAGE OIL
This valentines we opted for a massage for two with Miss Organics. We used the Serene Harmony Organic Body oil – just a heads up it smells absolutely divine! It’s certified organic, vegan friendly and features naturally occurring essential oils. Afterwards both myself and Liam felt moisturised and hydrated from the oil. The founder of Miss Organics, Anna is a long-time vegan and budding female entrepreneur. She’s also an advocate for gender equality and animal welfare, which is why all of the ‘Miss Organics’ range are only tested on her sisters!
*Giving your partner a massage can be such a lovely way to connect, and obviously doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg either!*

CONVERT YOUR ENVIRONMENT INTO A SPA
I always feel SUPER relaxed when I’m burning some essential oils. Lavender and tea tree are some of my favs. I light some tea lights alongside my oil burner and dot them around the room. Dim the lighting for those extra spa like vibes. I turn on a relaxation playlist. Jhene Aiko is one of my absolute favourites to get into the zone. I promise you, after following these steps you will feel like a new human!
WHAT HE THINKS…
“I really love a good massage session. We don’t do it as often as we should but I suppose that makes it all the more special. Don’t get me wrong I am partial to a good professional massage but it’s also quite nice to find the time to have a more intimate DIY massage with the other half. Imogen has suggested we should do it on a weekly basis..we’ll see how that goes.”

Don’t get me wrong I love a good classic red lip but I wanted to do a Valentines Day make-up look with a twist. Featuring lots of glitter, false lashes and and a quirky lip colour.
