My Valentine

Saturday, 7 March 2015

Money’s been a bit tight around these parts recently so I wasn’t expecting more than perhaps a card for Valentine’s Day this weekend – as it turned out that was all my darling husband forgot. Roses, Fizz and not one but TWO pairs of Ted Baker shoes – it is fair to say I felt very, very spoiled. 

In winter black courts are pretty much all I wear to work. Black patent with a perfect heel and a very discreet bit of gold detailing – these are absolutely perfect.

The second pair of shoes are very similar to the first but are an amped up version – perfect for wearing at night with a little black dress or printed trousers. Look at the taller, slimmer metal heel, the high shine leather, extensive detailing – still subtle but uber sexy. 

All Ted Baker shoes have generous padding inside to ensure they are always comfortable to wear and of course that gorgeous gold sole – LOVE!! 

After pressie time I was told to sit and relax while my OH made dinner – Brie tartlets, duck with minted peas and Creme Caramel, all courtesy of Mr Waitrose – oh come on he may be good but he isn’t Master Chef! Whoever devised the menu, Brian executed it perfectly and it was delicious. 

After dinner Brian got his card and pressie – no not THAT you dirty minded crowd. I had bought him all the makings for his favourite cocktail, the brandy Alexander, and it’s fair to say he throughly enjoyed a fair few of them. 

We both had a lovely Valentines and really appreciated the thought behind the treats we had each selected for the other. 

How did you spend Valentine’s this year, loved up with your partner or partying on a mates date???
