Valentine Competition

I have teamed up with Asda to bring a little love in time for Valentine; I have been sent a selection of a few of their fabulous Be Mine Valentine themed gifts to giveaway in a competition.

Lip Balm Trio £3 – to get your lips ever so kissable!  Nothing like the cold weather to leave them dry and sore, well you can soon banish that with this cute gift pack.  Pucker up!

Pampering Bath Petals £3 – pretty white petals to scatter into your bath, creating a romantic atmosphere (teamed up with some candles this would be quite a relaxing sight to behold!).

Hand Care Set £3 – you can tell how old you are by the state of your hands supposedly!  Well mine are in desperate need of some TLC then, as I must be nearing retirement already!  This set would soon get them into a loving condition again!


I love the packaging of all three sets; the great thing about Valentines at Asda is it is very affordable (leaving more money for eating out and a nice bottle of wine!).  It is hard living on a budget but at these prices you can feel like you have spoilt someone special in your life without panicking about it costing a small fortune! 

With all these treats you can get yourself looking perfect for the 14th!  Hopefully you will have someone to lavish attention on you but if not, then spoil yourself anyway!  After enjoying all of the above you can chomp down some Lindt chocolate (perfect for Valentines or as Mother’s Day chocolates, not that they would last long!).  These look very tasty and everyone needs a sugary treat now and then.  I know I feel the urge often enough, running around after my two is enough of a workout for me!  The Caramel Brownie especially sounds mouthwatering...


Randomly I will also throw in a pair of Heat Holders Socks, I have a few of these socks and swear by them!  Not huge on the romance factor you might think, but you could always whip them off last minute to get cosy!  Two ice blocks in bed does little to help the mood!!!  My feet are always freezing, so I do not leave the house without these!   

Please complete the rafflecopter below by the 12th of February (fingers crossed then you may have it in time for Valentines, if not its a nice treat regardless!).

  106. I have something major planned this Valentines day as I promised my boyfriend I will take charge this year and hopefully it work out. The day will start with me making him help me take my little brother to school and picking up his little girlfriend along the way and dropping them off. Then we'll take a walk through the shopping mall next to the college where we first met before heading off for a early screening at the cinema, sharing a box of popcorn right at the backseat whilst watching other couples together doing the same thing. Then I have lunch planned at a Michelin restaurant knowing we'll be surrounding by more longer term relationship couples like us enjoying a 5 course menu with separate wines per course. I know he will offer to pay but I will insisted that for the first time in our relationship, I would like to pay. When we are sober enough to walk and act normal I will ask him to help me do some grocery shopping which will confused him (he will probably think the day was over) and help me buy some sweet treats to take back with us. After another stroll and a sit in the park, watching couples pick up their children from school we will make it our final destination in my plan which is to a Valentines party at an elderly community service. We'll drop off the treats there and dance with the elders before being left alone to dance together to the music. And this is where I will make my speech. I will tell him how I remember how we met when we were young at school and how I want to know everything I missed before we met. How I remember our first date in the cinema and how attached and newly in love we were to falling in love and just being happy with each other, treating ourselves to expensive treats to doing the more casual stuff like shopping and being truly happy and content with him just being there beside me. And finally I ended the speech with saying how much I would like to grow old with him and be a happy married couple, starting a family and picking up his kids from school and like these elderlies around us, retired, old but still happy because they still got each other. It will end with a kiss and us sharing the tears running down our faces, deeply in love. I have my fingers crossed. Please wish me all the best. x

I can't wait - we're going to the cinema then out for a nice meal and we can have a long lie in. Lovely!
