40 Valentine’s Presents You Absolutely Need To Buy Yourself


Valentine’s Day, shmalentine’s day.

Let’s just all remember that the week before comes the real holiday. The sexiest holiday of all time. Pancake Day. When we get to drizzle maple syrup and bacon and nutella and lemon juice and sugar and ice cream and melted chocolate about our person and just roll around like a chubby pig stewing in our own happiness <3<3<3

Anyway, thought I’d throw together a (surprisingly gigantic) edit of all the beautiful things on the online high street you should absolutely treat yourself to, because y’know you’re your own one true love right?

There’s some incredibly heart-melting pun crockery from Sainsbury’s that needs to be in my life (and on my Instagram feed), some pretty just-in clothes, because girl, you always need more clothes, and some cute little pouches and things that are so small it’s like you didn’t even buy anything and lol, no shopping guilt over here.

So yeah gurl, here I am acting as your fave sweatshirt-wearing internet enabler.

You go show your bank balance who’s boss, you earnt this.

    Oh my God, number 23!!! I am totally buying these tomorrow after work (I have a huge Sainsbury’s next door to where I work, woohoo!) for me and my boyfriend to have when we move out. I’d use them for when I make Japanese food for us both. ^_^

    Might also be tempted to pick up number 34 too. 😛
