guest post: Valentine's Day!


Love it or loathe it; it's fast approaching! Even though I was in a long term relationship before my current relationship, I've never really done anything for Valentines day. In all honesty, I think it's such a cheesy and over-rated day. Why should you devote just one out of 365 days to tell someone you love them? It's pretty pointless! ... However, I'm going to stop being such a Valentine's humbug about it and actually do something with Andrew this year :)

So, what can we do?

I wish I could be overly happy about the day and throw a Valentine's Day costume party. I was looking at the fancy dress outfits from and they all look so fun! However, I (unfortunately) don't live the life of Carrie Bradshaw (SATC), so I have been thinking of other things to do!

1) Go for a meal
Quite the obvious thing to do, right? If you have been reading my blog/follow my Instagram for as long as I've been mentioning my boyfriend, you will know we simply love food. It doesn't help that Andrew loves cooking so whenever I go to his house, I get a meal cooked for me. We do like exploring restaurants however so it will probably be this option! Anything Italian wins my heart!

2) Cook together
This is something we do quite a lot anyway, but I think it would be lovely to spend a night indoors, cooking together with a bit of Phil Collins playing in the background. I'm only kidding. I told you; V-day is so cheesy! However, maybe cooking a three course meal together, setting a candle-lit table with a bottle of wine and two glasses isn't such a bad idea. After all, it would only be followed by my three favourite things in the world; chocolate, cuddles and films! (Maybe not a Ryan Gosling marathon though) ;)

Have you got a Valentine this year?
XO love, Ashleigh x


  1. I absolutely love Valentine's Day but don't have a boyfriend this year (also haven't had one the past two years haha) but if I did we would do something - no questions asked! I don't even think I could be with someone who didn't like it. :P

    At my first year in uni a couple I knew went to the zoo. And my current flatmate is going to Go Ape with her boyfriend which is an outdoors adventure park. It doesn't always have to be cheesy stuff. ;)

  2. Going out for a meal is always the nicest and easiest option. I love food too especially when I don't have to cook it
