Valentines loving and looks.

Today, for me and many others, today is about embracing how we are around ourselves and others. It is a time to celebrate the love of the others around us but it also time to love oneself. When I love myself, I take extra care of myself and I do that visibly with my appearance. I’m not saying that you have to put on a face of makeup to love yourself but to love yourself, you need to look after yourself. So it’s the perfect day to do this and for me to write this blog post.

One of the first things I did this morning was going to my very messy floordrobe of clothes and pick out my outfit. As it was the day full of flowers and coziness, I picked a crop, cream, knitted, high neck jumper with embroidered red roses on the sleeves. I got this jumper about a year ago from New Look so you probably won’t be able to find this but anything with roses and jumpers is perfect for this look.Due to the awful lighting in my room, I couldn’t get a very good picture of my jumper but there is it.

I then matched the jumper with a dark purple mini skirt which I got from Primark in October so it may have disappered now but there are many fabulous skirts like this from Primark so you would be able to find a look alike. It was also only 8 pounds! Bargain!

After getting changed into the outfit of the day, I went onto my face and decided to go for red and pinkey look (no need to explain). Of course, I used the trusty Collection Eye Pallete ‘Fall in Love’ (again, perfect for today) and then I used my all time favorite mascara; Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara.

During today, I’ve been reading lots and the book that I’m currently reading is by my hubby: Reggie Yates which is about this travels as a documentry presenter and the things/topics he has encountered on the way. The perfect valentines date for me.

I also had to bring my woman crush, Lorde, into my day by dancing and listening to her album: Melodrama which symbolises my life in songs at the moment.

Today hasn’t been that bad. Valentines is just another day, just with more annoying couple pictures on Instagram. However, make it a day where you are extra kind to yourself and treat yourself. Have a fantastic Valentines Day and sending you all my love,

Astrid X
