Valentines day is one of my favourite holidays and this year was even better than last . We celebrated yesturday as my boyfriend had work today and apart from the late taxi and awful rain it was a lovely evening.
We went to The Italian restaurant Strada in Birmingham by the ICC we allways walk past it on the way to my boyfriends house and for once i didnt have pasta …( Very rare for me ) i was adventurous and had chicken . : )
The food and service was really good but due to us running late we couldnt squeeze in desert which was a shame but we had seats booked at the Electric cinema to watch the strange yet beautiful Never let me go .( which i will mention in a different post )
I hand made my gift for my boyfriend this year which was two cusions with our intials on S and K .
All hand stiched and you can tell as Im not the best at sewing, but hey it was made with love …. theres ” i love u ” stitched on the K cusion on the back .
I recieved some beautiful flowers and L’ Artisan chocolates which are some of the best chocolates ive ever tasted !
Another great valentines day , i even got sent some love hearts sweets from O2 in the post saying happy valentines …..
Im hoping next year to be in our own home ( with those cushions sitting on the couch ! ) and my boyfriend to give me a little pug puppy with a red ribbon round his neck !
Yes im dropping hints for next year allready ! ha

I had the pleasure of going shopping with the other half this week and did a spot of shopping where i brought this hat i love it everyone has the ones with the “flaps” so i wanted something different.
( silk shirt vintage flee market birmingham. Leather skirt vintage store manchester , hat tkmax ,belt primark , bonjour ring asos )
(My favourite necklace in my jewellery box right now is this little typewriter from topshop )
As you can see my flowers have died im not just lazy and not thrown them away they are there for a reason one so my boyfriend can see how ugly they are and go and buy me some new ones … ( this didnt work … he didnt buy me any dam it )
And the other as im working on a project at the moment n photographed them .
i have so much work on right now and christmas is only round the corner which means full time hours at work with angry customers and walking home in cold winter nights.
But at least i have my bottle of baileys at home to pour in my hot chocolate !
Im off to lunch now n a spot of shopping i shouldn’t but hey my lectures were cancelled today what better way to celebrate but to shop !
