Be Mine Valentine

It's official: nine days until Valentine's Day. Though the thought of heart shaped boxes of chocolates and plush teddy bears might leave some groaning, for us romance lovers, single or coupled up, Valentine's Day has been marked on our calendars in a big pink letters.

While I won't be with my special someone on Valentine's Day, (my boyfriend while be en piste in the Alps, I'll be at the top of the Empire State building, no, really), for those of you that are lucky enough to be with your Mr or Miss Wonderful to celebrate, now is the perfect time to start dropping gift ideas into conversation. For the shoe lover out there, Alexander McQueen's heart detail, peep toe heels will have you swooning, (as my Twitter followers will know they had me!), and are available in both a sexy black patent with pink piping, and a fun, bold bright pink. For the unconventional Valentine, these heels are also available in green, but made from 100% crocodile hide, my inner animal lover is going to give this green version of the shoe a Clothes Before Hoes thumbs down.
If, like me, you're a little bit of a Charlotte York type, and would prefer a rock rather than Rodarte from your Valentine, there are some fashionably romantic hot picks around, including this silver and pink enamel, kiss detail necklace by Jade Jagger.

But for me, the gift I'd most like to receive from my lovely Valentine is something from one of my favourite designer's, Vivienne Westwood's Valentine collection. My favourite pieces are a pink enamel and pink diamante ring, which incorporates the Westwood heart and cross logo, and these matching studs, that feature a diamante orb. Though, on my boyfriend's full time student budget, a box of delicious Lindor will suffice.

For the indecisive, these gift tokens from Luella are a perfect option. Super cute in romantic shades of candy pink, with her trademark horsey logo, those rosette gift vouchers come in denominations of £20 and £50, allowing you to treat yourself to bags, shoes or any of your other favourite poisons from Luella's stunning S/S collection

I'm apart from my love on valentine's too, School trip to Paris has never before sounded like a bad idea.

totally with you on the eco-thing. although complicated:S what's even more complicated is the fact that i can't see being with a special someone on valentine's (no boyfriend, no candidates either) so just aswell I should treat myself to a pair of shoes and hope they bring me luck!!

*so are you spending that day with friends? any good plan?
