[Feature] Sharing the Love with Marks and Spencer

I think this has been the case for everyone at the moment, but I've really struggled to spend time with the important people so far this year. With the dark evenings and dank weather, by the time work has finished the idea of gearing up for a night is the furthest thing from my mind. As my "poor shows" had gone noticed, I needed to do something nice for the girls to make up for it. So when Marks and Spencer asked if I'd like to take part in their #sharethelove campaign for Valentines Day it couldn't have come at a better time...

When I was growing up, Dad used to make us a Valentines breakfast for my sister and I before school and it was a tradition thats stuck with me.  Valentines for me isn't just about boyfriends, girlfriends etc... It's a nice chance to show those you really care about what they mean to you. Lopez has sent out his presents too - Mum is due her chocolates any second now... Last night I had the girls over for a yummy dinner and catch up all courtesy of Marks and Spencer.

Planning yesterday evening was super fun. For me Marks and Spencer's Food Hall is a happy, happy place and I'll make any excuse to go in there. I always have the voice of the woman from that advert saying "this is no ordinary *apple/cake/ice cream*, it's an Marks and Spencer's..." whilst I'm going down the aisles too.  It was hard to choose what to get, but they are running a Dine In for £20 deal with more food than you can really imagine so we went for that (click here to see the menu, it's insane). M&S supplied us with some fab home pieces to help me set the scene too, from a candelabra to cut little stationary notes (awesome for charades).

Much to the envy of the girls, I spent the evening in my new pyjamas from the collaboration with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (and much to the disappointment of the boyfriend, it didn't turn me into her) while we all devoured the enormous chocolate box, drank our way through a couple of bottles and covered ourselves in face masks. M&S have some gorgeous bits for today (or any day, no excuse needed) - above are my favourite bits from lingerie to soft furnishings. I picked out the takeaway coffee cup and the photo frame as good little bits for your other half or loved one, or for yourself I bought this set for myself in December and absolutely love it. Whatever you're doing today, I hope you have a great Valentines Day. Lots of love!
