A perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your loved one (or yourself!)

With the most romantic day of the year (Please take this with a pinch of salt!) coming up next Tuesday (February 14th, if you didn’t already know), it’s important to know that the day isn’t just for boyfriends and girlfriends, husbands and wives; it’s also for your friends, for the people around you that you love and most importantly, yourself!

To tie in with Valentine’s Day, I’m very happy to announce that I’m now an affiliate with the lovely Itty Bitty Book Co. who I have spoken about a number of times on the blog now. I talked about their #PositivityTakeover movement and I posted a recent update including the gorgeous city of Rome. I even have their “Book of Strength” and I’ve had that for a few years now and it’s still in perfect condition, so I’m a huge advocate of the company and their ethos.

Itty Bitty have released a Valentine’s Day collection and of course, it’s shining brightly as always so I wanted to share what they had in store for everyone this year.

We’re going to start with the big one first, naturally! This is jam packed full of goodies for that special someone in your life and/or going all out to treat yourself too!

We’ll start off with a lovely 6×8 print (that you could even put in one of those lovely box frames after it’s opened! It’ll be the perfect print to stand out in the bedroom or even the bathroom.) If you want to tell someone they’re beautiful but you can’t find the right words, this one will serve you very well.

Next up is the full set of mini Itty Bitty Books which boost motivation, strength and inspiration. They’re really small so they can fit in your handbag or they can even sit on your bedside table for a reflection of gratitude (and if you add a ten minute meditation to this just before bed, it’s the ideal way to fall asleep straight away. It’s a tried and tested method, trust me!).

Finally, it’s the ‘Choose Love’ Irish Linen wall hanging which I think would go perfectly in the kitchen. I know I would put mine beside the kettle because that’s where a lot of love goes for me, into a perfect cup of tea!

This bumper set is priced at £40 and postage starts at £3.30 (UK to UK), all you need to get is a cute little bow, you won’t even need to wrap it (but if you do, it’ll be even more of a surprise to the recipient.)

However, if you’re looking for something a little smaller in size and in price, I introduce the smaller version of the box. It’s £15 and includes the Positivity Itty Bitty Book as well as the gorgeous print listed above.

If you want to find out more about their Valentine’s Day collection, you can click right here and it’ll take you to their full collection. If you live in Northern Ireland, you’ll find them at St. George’s Market most Saturday’s and Sunday’s but if you’re not from Northern Ireland, don’t worry! As I mentioned earlier, they do ship across the world but if you’re from the UK and Europe, you only have a few more days to get your orders in in time.

Finally, and probably the most important thing I want you to take away from this blog post; it doesn’t matter if you have a boyfriend or girlfriend or if you don’t, you’re still loved no matter what. A lot of people (including myself at times) make Valentine’s Day to be the be-all-end-all of romance and you feel like you need to have the perfect day or you’re not in the most wonderful relationship or you’re a failure because you don’t have someone to share this day with. At the end of the day, the most important relationship you have is with yourself so cherish yourself, treat yourself and take care of yourself.

I’m getting involved in the Christmas Blogger Gift Swap!

As I mentioned one or two times (either on Twitter or on the blog), I’m not really looking forward to Christmas this year, which is a real shame because I’m known for wearing my Christmas jumpers early and getting into the Christmas spirit. In order to help myself (even just a little), I’ve signed up to the Christmas Blogger Gift Swap organised by Viola!

If you want to find out all the details about the swap and how you can get involved, you can go to Viola’s link about the swap (which is linked right here!). You have until 1st November to complete the registration form, and unfortunately it is a UK only gift swap at this stage!

I’m looking forward to picking some lovely things out for my paired partner!

Happy Easter (Monday)!

Well, Happy Easter Monday! I know I haven’t blogged in a while but I’m not beating myself up for it. Life gets busy, but in the best way.

I’m a huge advocate for New Years Resolution’s, I love setting new goals and I’m a list girl, so lists and goals are one of the big motivators for me. So what a perfect time to start a new slate than the day after Easter Sunday!

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while or reading my tweets, you know that I can’t eat a lot of chocolate but my boyfriend bought me some small raw chocolate eggs and I might have had a few too many of those, and now I feel quite ill.

So today will be a new day. Fresh food, happy food, healthy food, and just getting back on tract with the food and exercise. Taking a few days off is never a bad thing but I can’t wait to get back onto feeling myself again.
