I may be a wife and mum now but that doesn’t mean I don’t like to make a bit of an effort when it comes to Valentine’s Day. We don’t go out for Valentine’s Day but we do have a special meal at home once the kids are in bed. Excuses to put on nice make up are few and far between these days so I like take full advantage of any occasion to have a bit of a pamper and wear something that isn’t covered in baby sick, I’ll be back in my pjs as soon as we have finished our meal mind.
The night before
I like to have a good pamper night the night before with a hot bubbly bath, bath bomb and a 7th heaven face mask. 7th heaven do an amazing pamper gift set that contains lots of different face masks as well as ones for your hair,nails and feet. I’ve been using 7th heaven facemasks for years now, they are my go to facemasks when I want to pamper myself.
I’m planning to put some of fake tan on to give me a bit of colour, seriously Casper the ghost has nothing on me. My favourite tan is St moriz. I have been using it for years now, I’m pretty useless when it comes to applying tan but I find this one easy to use and it gives me a nice even tan. I’m looking forward to testing the exfoliating skin primer for the first time too.
You’ve got to have a red lip on Valentines day haven’t you, this matte lip colour from sleek is the perfect vibrant red. I will keep my eye make up quite simple because lets face it, what parent wants to be scrubbing a load of eyeliner off when you just want to crawl into bed. I’m also loving the cream to powder blush by sleek for adding a cute pop of colour.
I’ve got no intention of getting dressed up as such but I do like to wear something red or love themed. My new next t shirt will be perfect.
Lets face it, the best thing about Valentine’s Day is getting to eat nice food and maybe a cheeky midweek prosecco. I’m planning on cooking us a balsamic onion and goats cheese tart, mmm yummy!
Do you celebrate Valentine’s day?
