#ShareTheLove: Valentine’s Day With Marks and Spencer

ValentinesDay-M-&-S-2Valentine’s Day is always a non-starter in our household, as each year it always falls during London Fashion Week, so each season my other half gets replaced by catwalk shows, late nights, and deadlines, which turns me into a stressed out, very tired monster – not very romantic.

So this year, when Marks and Spencer got in touch and asked if I would like to get involved in their #ShareTheLove Valentine’s Day campaign, I thought why not do an early dine-in special before I turn into a stressed out fashion victim.

So this year’s M&S became our Valentine’s and sent us flowers, candles, chocolates, and food vouchers to have the perfect night. We decided to test out this year’s Gourmet Dine-in-for-Two menus, which is great value as for £20 you can pick a starter, a main course, a side dish, a dessert, and a bottle of wine, plus you get the cutest heart-shaped chocolates.

Everything from the starter to mains were delicious, but the best had to be the dreamy dessert, the chocolate and raspberry truffle bake, which when I say I can’t help but do the dulcet tones of M&S lady from the advert, much to the annoyance of my fiancé. It really was the most perfect end to a very relaxed night in before the madness of London Fashion Week.

How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day?

Valentine’s Day Treat: An Edible Chocolate Box From Aubaine


Last week when Aubaine contacted me about wanting to send me a little Valentine’s Day surprise I have to be honest I didn’t know what to expect, but I definitely wasn’t expecting a chocolate box, yep a box made of chocolate, that I can eat, and that is filled with delicious macarons.

Everything from the presentation – come on when have you ever ate a chocolate box, to the dreamy perfectly formed macarons and the cute grey handbag box it comes in – this is one heavenly Valentine’s Day treat.

Trust me flowers are so last season – if you are after something a little different to give to your loved one this Valentine’s Day I can definitely recommend this gorgeously crafted Valhrona chocolate box filled with four raspberry and pistachio macarons. Just writing it makes me want another one.

This little box is on sale for £14.50 until February 14 and can be ordered online or picked up in one of their restaurants.

Nothing says ‘I Love You’ like cute pink macarons, oh and did I mention it has a chocolate box!!!!
