With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, lovers and friends worldwide are getting ready to celebrate their love and planning the perfect date for their partner. However, if you’re like me and can’t think of a single romantic thing to do, let alone create the ultimate Valentine’s Day experience for your loved one then just keep on reading. I have listed some great date ideas alongside some of my favourite Valentines outfits from Pretty LittleThing that will put a smile on your partner’s face and melt their heart (plus you might get in their good books too!).


Recreate your first date

Now this one is rated pretty high on the “romantic gestures scale,” it requires a good memory and a bit of work to make it just right, but it is well worth it and will impress your other half. Walk down the same streets where you first kissed and have a couple of drinks in that old coffee shop where you had your first drinks together. Don’t be afraid to spend a bit extra and add a little romantic gift into the mix.

Cook for your loved one

Start researching good recipes for a romantic dinner for two, get the right ingredients and prepare a couple of practice dinners to make sure you’ve got your technique and presentation down pat. Cooking for someone can be a big turn on and you can create some incredible meals without spending too much money. Take it up a notch by dressing classy, decorating your dining room and presenting your partner with a printed menu.


A romantic weekend getaway in the mountains

For those looking for a change of scenery and an escape from the busy city, there is nothing better than a quiet, romantic weekend in the mountains. There are plenty of fun activities like skiing that will keep you active. You can have fun making a snowman or engaging in a snowball fight, and, of course, there is plenty of privacy and great room service waiting for you back at your room.


Spend the day driving around the city and visiting new places

This one is geared towards couples who have been together for a year or two and want to experience a few new things together. Visit a few cool coffee places on the other side of town, check out interesting restaurants you’ve never been to, and consider going to see a play or having fun at a comedy club on open mic night. Take loads of pictures and just have fun!


Wine and chocolates at sunset

Pick out a romantic location, such as a camping spot on a hill overlooking the city or a balcony in a restaurant with a nice view, open a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates and wait for that perfect moment when the sky turns fiery red to embrace and share a passionate kiss.

Ice skating

There is something incredibly fun about ice skating that brings people closer together and just keeps you laughing (maybe it’s all the falling and clinging to the other person for dear life, well that’s me anyway). You can have some great fun and then move on to a more private location for some alone time.

Dance the night away

If you and your partner other are relatively good dancers, or if you simply enjoy moving your body to music, then a night at salsa club or similar venue is the perfect thing for you. Alternatively, you can set up dance floor at home, play your favourite music, have a few drinks and dance like there is no tomorrow.


No matter what activity you choose for this Valentines I’m sure you’ll have a night to remember. All of the looks I have styled are perfect for a variety of events, you can purchase from the Pretty Little Thing Valentine’s Day shop, you’ll be sure to find something that’s perfect for the night you choose.

Happy Valentines,

Hey guys! I’m back with another post about Bioderma, I am truly obsessed! This time it’s about a little Christmas gift set to treat your skin to a full Bioderma face and body care regime. Including a trio of the brand’s cult favourite skincare products to cleanse and rehydrate skin from top to toe, preserving its health, smoothness and vitality in a lasting and caring way.


The Gift Set Includes:


A soap-free formula that gently cleanses and soothes dry, sensitive skin. Transforming into a creamy foam upon contact with water, the face and body wash eliminates impurities and minimises feelings of tightness for long-lasting comfort. Imparts a fresh, light fragrance and leaves skin feeling calm, soft and protected.

This stuff is a great gentle body cleanser which doesn’t irritate or dry the skin out, perfect if you want an even application of fake tan for Christmas or New Year!



A soothing non-rinse cleanser and make-up remover that instantly decongests the complexion, lifting away surface debris and impurities and guarantees an excellent tolerance.

Perfect addition to your routine to remove all your makeup, especially when you come back tired after a festive night out. An everyday essential!



A deeply hydrating moisturiser specially formulated to improve moisture and radiance in dry to very dry skin. Restoring suppleness and softness, the intensely hydrating cream has a rich texture inspired by the structure of the epidermis to encourage better penetration, and utilises a dose of Salicylic Acid to slough away dead skin cells and smoothen skin’s texture.

I always suffer from really dry skin in winter so this cream is exactly what I need to get rid of any dry patches. I used to be scared of salicylic acid (the word acid is a bit terrifying), but the truth of it is this stuff is a miracle for clearing up any skin irregularities.

The gift set also comes with a cotton pouch to keep all your fabulous products together. If you are late to buying this year’s Christmas presents (like I am and I bet many of you are too) then you can purchase the set for £22.50 from Look Fantastic.

I’d really recommend this set as a great starter kit for anyone wanting to try Bioderma products, plus it’s super affordable too, the products you get are worth over £34!! I know right, bargain. 

Let me know if you try the set and what you think of it.

The skin is one of the most affected parts of our bodies affected by the ageing process. As we age, our skin changes its texture, with lines and wrinkles becoming more and more pronounced. However, both cosmetic beauty treatments and anti-ageing products can be used to restore the youthful appearance of the skin.
Stemuderm is an excellent anti-ageing solution, one that you can rely on in order to improve your appearance and look better than ever. The concentrated cream targets the most common signs of aging, containing potent ingredients with active properties against wrinkles.
