My Valentines Day

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. I spent mine with my lovely boyfriend celebrating Valentines Day.

We did say we weren't going to buy much for each other but I couldn't resist buying him this amazing multi coloured rose.

 We didnt do anything on the Thursday as we wanted to wait for the weekend so we didnt have to worry about getting up early the next morning.

I met him when he finished work and we went for a lovely meal at Le Relais de Venise L'EntrecĂ´te in Moorgate. He'd heard good things from his colleagues and had been looking for an excuse to take me, and we were not disappointed. You can't book in advance, you just turn up and usually there's a queue but we didn't have to wait long at all.

There's only one thing on the menu -Steak frites which they cook to your liking. They bring out a green salad to start and then your main is brought in 2 parts so the meat is perfect throughout the whole meal. We obviously washed it down with a couple of glasses of wine too. It was amazing and was really nice to make a point of just talking about ourselves for a change as our lives seem to revolve around everyone else's plans at the moment. It was nice to just be 'Us' -I think that's what Valentines Day is about.

I'd been saying I wanted some bed sheets for a while and I casually showed him a set online but he told me they were too girly so I bought a plain set. He obviously changed his mind as he gave me them as part of my Valentines present. 

After writing my Valentines wish list I cant complain about the outcome. 

He got me the Illamasqua Speckled nail polish and a bunch of gorgeous lilies.
2 things off the list aint bad...

I really like Valentines day. I know you should show your love for your partner any day of the year but  with how busy everyone is it's nice to have an excuse to make the effort. It's really cute seeing everyone all loved up for a day, it's always nice to see someone walking along with a bunch of flowers with a glint in their eye! 

Hope you all had a nice Valentines Day!
