Weekend Vibes

|Coat - H&M | Dress - Primark | Boots - New Look | Scarf - Primark | Bag - Kurt Geiger |

 Hello Lovelies, is it just me, or is everyone else fed up with this dreary weather!? I've had enough of bundling up against the icy winds, and battling the rain every time I need to leave the house. That being said, last Sunday we pottered out for the day, and despite the weather being freezing I wore a dress! I know what you may be thinking, but I just loved the print so much, and I think it looked pretty paired with my knee length boots.

I picked up this cute high neck, daisy print, dress from Primark for around £13! I originally thought it would look great in summer, with tan sandals, a slouchy tan bag, red lips and a messy bun. Then the prospect of making it more winter worthy popped into my head, so I layered it with dark brown knee length boots, thick tights, a navy cardigan and my long line black coat. I really like how the outfit turned out. Though I won't say it was hugely warm it was worth it as I just couldn't wait to wear my new purchase, you know how it feels I'm sure!

Are you ready for some warmer weather?

How We Spent Valentine's Day

 I thought I would share with you a sneaky peak into how we spent Valentine's this year. I love writing these type of posts, as they are such fun to look back on in months/years to come. The day started as every day should, with breakfast in bed! We had creamy vanilla yogurt with juicy fresh fruit and buttery croissants, and lots of orange juice to wash it down with.

 We relaxed and made the most of it, pondering and reminiscing, getting excited about the fact that next year we will be spending Valentine's as Husband and Wife. Which I'm especially looking forward to, do you know how hard it is to find a nice FiancĂ© card?! The struggle is real.

 We finally managed to prise ourselves away, we got up and dressed for the day. We decided to head off to beautiful Buxton for a day of exploring. We vowed that we would explore more of our local area and country this year, I have plenty of places both countryside and cities on my list, and I intend on ticking them off one weekend at a time!

  It may appear a beautiful bright sunny day, but by the last picture you can see it was actually freezing cold and very windy! At one point we even had some snow. The views and rolling hills were glorious, and romantic to walk through.

  We even took a trip down and inside Poole's Cavern, the caves were so awe-inspiring, like a whole other world. I would highly recommend a visit if you are ever in the Buxton area. After filling our lungs with fresh country air, the Mr treated me to Afternoon tea at the stunning No 6 The Square. A quaint, cosy tea room just across from the Pavilion.

All the tables had a fresh rose on them, and the surroundings oozed elegance.

 When the glittering platter was set before us, my mouth instantly started watering. There were mini sandwiches - cream cheese, salmon and ham. Then two succulent, large cherry scones with lashings of cream and jam. Then the final tier, my favourite, was all the cakes! From a pink glittery macaroon filled with hazelnut chocolate, to a spicy carrot cake. It's fair to say we were stuffed by the time we finished! We polished off our teas before heading back to the car, and setting off home.

How did you spend your Valentine's?

Valentine's Lacy Lingerie & Self-Love |*

Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and who said it had to just be about treating your other half?! After all, who needs a reason to Treat Yourself? This Valentine's day splash out on yourself; indulge in a luxury bubble bath, with a glass of champers of course, binge watch Netflix eating a tub of Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough, Don your sexiest underwear, and relax in style. All in the name of Self-love, because your a sassy queen who deserves a pamper.

I love to wear pretty lingerie, it's one thing that really makes me feel good about myself! I like to wear them underneath chunky knitted jumpers or pretty sheer tops. There's no better feeling. This pretty, white, lace bra* from Boohoo is simply stunning, and fits like a dream. I love the long line lace detail, it gives the bra a very feminine feel - as well as providing excellent support!

 We all know that as soon as Christmas is over, the shops are full of hearts and chocolates. it's unavoidable. So I say instead of shying away from it this year, let's embrace it! After the January blues, Valentine's day could be seen as the perfect pick me up.  As someone who struggled with self-confidence for quite a few years, I can vouch for how important self-love is. It's something that we all should do, after all we deserve it right? So let's celebrate self love this year, and treat ourselves to something that makes us feel good!

What are you planning on treating yourself to this Valentine's?
