Valentines Special

I am gonna be honest, I have never celebrated Valentine’s Day… I don’t hate it I just don’t celebrate it haha. Plus mine and Ryan’s anniversary is on the 9th feb so we tend to focus on that anyway- I wrote a post on our celebrations here.

However, I don’t think you need to spend lots of money or do anything extravagant, I feel you can easily make a special night in and save loads of money!! ❣️

For the meat eaters I got a special beef joint to cook as Ryan loves his meat. I don’t normally eat a lot of meat and I previously used to be a vegetarian, but I do eat meat every now and then! If you wanted to make a veggie dinner then I recommend the new quorn Swedish meatballs and spaghetti! That would make a perfect valentines dinner for one or two 😉.

The meat was from Sainsbury’s and was called “beef topside joint with salt and pepper on the crust” and it was £5 I think… I wanted to keep it healthy so I am cooking it with some veg- my choice is green beans and broccoli. But you can have whatever you want, you can add roast potatos or even chips with it too! Then final touch will be to cover in gravy 😍.

Anyone else feel like someone off masterchef when they cook and put their food on a plate? 😂 (I do love masterchef and I have learnt a lot from it- anyone watching it this year?).

Of course as well as food some other added extras to make your night special is some indoor heart sparklers (of course make sure you use them safely and have an adult if you are under 18!). But me and my partner loved using these, and they were also from Sainsbury’s (I am not sponsored haha).

Also I think treat yourself to some flowers, cause flowers are always nice whether someone buys them for you or you buy them for yourself! Personally I think flowers just make a room look so much nicer and they just make me happier!

Another thing you can do on your valentines date night (with yourself or a partner) is just get into bed and binge watch a series or watch a movie! Perfect for a relaxing evening.

If you don’t fancy celebrating that’s fine too, it’s just another day and most people will have work the next day so just think about that haha.

What are you doing for valentines? 

Happy valentines to you all, have a good one!❤️

  1. All I know so far is that we’ll be having breakfast where we had our first date! We’ll figure the rest out as we go 😂

  2. Sounds like a perfect Valentines night in! We won’t be doing anything this year, we’ve been so busy we haven’t had chance to plan so it’s just a normal day for us!

    1. Thank you so much!!! Neither had I and I just had to buy them 😊 I have never shown my drawings online before so I was a bit nervous haha, but thank you that means a lot 💚

  4. This sounds like such a fun Valentine’s Day! Those indoor heart sparklers look so cute. I’ve never really celebrated the day even when I was in a relationship (school/work always got in the way), but I had one of the best ones this year even though I’m single. I went out with my parents for dinner, and then came home to eat chocolate strawberries, followed by watching Netflix with my pets. 🙂

    1. The sparklers were so much fun! Yeah me too and I have never bought cards or gifts but I still appreciate the day as cute as it is! 😊 aww that sounds like such a lovely time! Chocolate strawberries are the one😍 sounds great xx

  5. I didn’t do anything for Valentine’s Day, but that’s okay with me! I celebrated it beautifully last year, so this year I needed to spend it alone I think.

    I’m glad you enjoyed your Valentine’s Day and had the opportunity to spend it with someone you love, doing something fun and special to you guys! That’s what’s most important 🙂

    1. Sometimes that’s the best way! I never normally do anything, but I think it’s just as great to spend it by yourself, or with friends and family or with a partner. It’s a day of love and that comes in many forms 😊
      Thank you! Definitely 😊 thanks for reading xxx
