I just wanted to take a quick minute to wish you all a Happy Valentine’s Day. Some of you might be loving it and some of you may be hating it, depending on where you are right now in your lives or how you feel about the huge money making machine that Valentine’s Day has turned into, but Happy Valentine’s anyway.
Personally, I just spent half an hour trying to paint this heart shape on my lips, which I then had to remove in a nano second when the postman knocked. He’s lovely, but I’m not sure he couldn’t deal with that! By the way, you learn quite a lot about your lips when you do this. In my case, I learnt how wonky they are and how hairy that bit under my bottom lip is!!
I think Valentine’s can be fun and I am in a good place love-wise and have been for a few years, although it hasn’t always been the case. In fact, one of the most fun Valentine’s Days was a single one, where I went out with my girlfriends and we got dragged into a pub game called screws and nuts. I won’t go into details!
We (man & I) shan’t be going out tonight though – not a huge fan of sitting elbow to elbow with strangers, eating a set menu and paying well over the odds for the pleasure. I think we’ll probably sip some bubbles at home in front of the TV.
So.. whether you are single, one half of a couple, looking for love or trying desperately to avoid it, have a wonderful day today. Happy Valentine’s day whatever that means, and thank you for your continued support. I HEART YOU!
Oh! And if you are interested, the red heart(ish) lip was created using my beloved YSL Glossy Stain in Rouge Laque No 9.
