Happy Valentines Day!!

Bah Valentines Day. The one day of the year that makes us that are single feel like poop, while those that are in a relationship are all lovey dovey with a *legitamate* reason. I say PAH to that.

There is a blog I follow. Well, no, I follow a lot. But this one is funny. And informative. No really, check out the guide to negative numbers. Anyway. It's written by JRose, who is incredibly talented and funny. 

About three weeks ago, she proposed the idea of a "Secret Cupid Exchange". Being UK based, I ummed and ahhed for about 3 minutes, before signing up to it. Luckily, there were enough people in the UK who wanted to take part, so I wasn't having to post abroad, and risk it not getting there in time. A week later I got an email confirming that I was taking part, and with details of who my match was. Excited is not the word for how I felt. The person I was sending to wouldn't be the person I would be receiving from, that would be someone else entirely.

Today, I got my package. Rather apt really, receiving my Cupid Package on Valentines Day!!

It was from Mollie, over at Mollie Is Ok In UK. You should go read her blog, it's BRILLIANT!

Ok, onto the goodies!!

The package on the right is chocolate toffee popcorn. I've managed to restrain myself so far, and only had a handful. This diet malarky sucks at times!

Pretty earrings. Sorry this photo isn't the best, my camera was being funny about wanting to let me use the actual macro setting.

Magnet. How did you know Mollie, that I have a shoe buying problem. No really, I do. From where I am sat, I can see 28 different pairs of shoes. That is only JUST scratching the surface!

I LOVE it Mollie, have no fear! Thank you!!


  1. I'm so glad you're happy with it! I really debated about the popcorn, because I know that this time of year, most women are in some throe of a diet or another...but then I thought, "fuck it. everyone needs chocolate on Valentine's."

    1. Hehe, the popcorn was delish! I managed to make it last 3 days, so it wasn't a massive hit on the diet lol XD
