Getting Ahead of myself


Please go over to my main website, where I talk more about this week at 

I want to get ahead of myself this year. So this week I am dedicating to Valentines Day.

Less than a month away, and I will be creating videos too, leading up to the day.

I used to be so resentful when it came to valentines, I saw it as a waste of money, and it’s only created for companies to get more money out of people.

However as I have gotten older, and I would like to think wiser, I do see it differently.

It is how you make it that matters.

I use it as a way for myself and hubby to treat each other, and this year we are going to make gifts for one another this year.

You don’t have to spend money, but if you did want to get a little something or decorate your home to celebrate the day, then there are some good low cost items.

I will be showing some good gift ideas in a video soon.

Plus giving tips on “How to meet someone”.

I have been married for over 10 years now, and no I am not an expert at relationships, and I was never a girl whom had loads of boyfriends. I suffered with social anxiety and to beat fears of meeting someone, you need to get yourself out of the house.

Being within 4 walls isn’t gonna make yourself feel better.

Check out Amazon for some great Valentines Decor and gifts, they always have such a good collection.

Happy Valentines Day Personalised Teddy Heart Chocolate Bar 100g Personalised Teddy Heart Chocolate

Check out gift above from Amazon, Happy Valentines Personalised Teddy Heart Chocolate bar  for £3.94 by Gift Rush.

Themed Cushions, this can be bought for Valentines or for a Wedding Anniversary coming up. If it happens to be on the same day, then why not celebrate by adding these to your home.

Price: £2.99 by Omiky.

Or why not check out Poundland they always have some great items for valentines, and I got a lot of items from there last year that I used. I gave one to my husband for fathers day aswell as valentines day.

Valentine's Day Heart Cushion

Check out this cushion for example, great if you don’t wanna pay over £2 from Amazon, as what I would say is check delivery, when ordering items from Amazon, to see how long it will take. Remember that if you become a Prime member you can get a lot of items next day delivery free of charge, or even on the same day, depending on where it is shipped from.

If Poundland is on your doorstep then it is worth checking it out, for those fun and quirky gifts and home decor.

Valentine's Day Memory Box

Check out this Valentines Day Memory box, from Poundland, great to store some keepsakes; those photos from when you first met up until present, or a gift your partner first bought you.

My advice is to have fun and not to take it seriously. I see these yearly occasions to have fun and celebrate them with who ever you love.

Many thanks for reading,
