Why I Don't Mind Valentines ft Tobi

by - Sunday, February 04, 2018

It’s that period where people either love or hate those displays of affection the card industry have decided we should make. I happen to quite like it so decided to do some research on it.

February apparently, is actually the month of romance and valentines day contains both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. One legend explains that it was to do with marriage being banned and a man named Valentine would marry people in secret. Another story is the idea that someone called Valentine was sending a girl gifts while in prison. You can read all about them here. I didn't realise there were so many different stories behind valentines day.

For me valentines isn’t about lavish gifts or extraordinary gestures it’s about spending some time with the one you love. We always use it as an excuse to go out for a nice meal or a weekend away. We don’t really buy each other gifts it’s more about being with each other.

Yes for those who aren’t in a relationship I completely get that it’s a bit like rubbing it in your face. However for me valentines is about love not about being in a relationship with someone, so set a date with someone who you love who you haven’t seen in a while; a sibling, old school friend, your mum and use it as an excuse to spend some quality time with them instead.

This year Glenn and I are heading to London for the weekend as our valentines celebration, we don't always celebrate on the day but will always do something around that week. We’re visiting the history and science museums (which is free) as we keeping talking about doing it and still haven’t, then finishing it with a nice meal at Silk and some Junkyard Golf....as you do!

This outfit is an ideal day to night valentines look. The velvet deep red dress from Tobi has little details that make it perfect for dinner but with the added tights it helps dress it down for the day as well. Tobi have a great selection of day to night dresses so make sure you check them out to see what they have to offer.
I’ve paired it with this fab Boots, they just add that touch of sparkle needed for this to feel like a me outfit.

Whatever you do this valentines use it as an excuse to spend some time with people you love. Hope you all have a fab weekend.
