First up I would like to apologise for neglecting my blog for a whole week, however I'm not going to because I've had a brilliant week celebrating my birthday. ;) Although someone did say to me 'another year older, eh' -way to metaphorically synge me with my candles. I am so spoilt by my friends and family and I appreciate it with all my heart :) I got lots of lovely pressies and had about 5 birthday meals (3 on the same day, diet posts need a serious re-appearence!). One stand-out gift was this bag from Mango:
So to the point of the post, Valentine's Day. Now I know some people will have just seen the initial 'Vale...' and practically sicked in their mouth at the thought. Trust me, I feel the gag reflex going, but a few years ago I made the decision to try not to be toooooo bitter about couples having their own day dedicated to rubbing it in singeltons faces (minimised, but still present, bitterness ;)).
|Yes, that is Queen of Bittersville wearing a heart jumper...|
Moving on from that creepy statement, to look 2. This one is a lot more vampish and flirty, for an evening meal or night out. For the, 'I've made an effort for you' look:
|Darker brows, liquid liner, more blush, more mascara, bright red lips (Maybeline Color Sensation in Fatal Red 530 with L'Oreal Glam Shine Sheer Grenadine 181) = Dramatic flirty look.|
In my opinion the top look is nicer for Valentine's Day because it's cute. Having said that I'd probably wear the second because I always get heavy handed with make-up, although I did actually really like this on (it looks more dragalicious on camera). Speaking of my love for OTT, I did Valentine's nails too. To be honest, I did get carried away. I blame the post-Christmas lack of glitter. All of December you're invited to play magpie then BAM, spring pastels hit the shops. Well I rebelled (too much) and bedazzled my fingers:
|Barry M Bright Pink, OPI Excuse Moi! and Rimmel Disco Ball. (Dear HD, why are you showing my shoddy nail painting skills?)|
|Me basically just checking how close I can zoom on my camera. Such a child... Re-iterated by the epic quantity of glitter.|
Yes it's a LOT, but who cares?! If a sexyfine rugby player walks up to me I'll put my hands in my pockets, until then I'm going to let nail polish make me happy.
I genuinely do hope that you all have a lovely Valentine's Day if you're celebrating, however many times I've used the word 'bitter' in this post. Lol. And if you aren't celebrating go and buy yourself a piece of make-up with the money you've saved by being single ;)
