pre-valentines

guide to valentines day

Hello sweeties! (I think this greeting is entirely appropriate since Valentines Day is just around the corner!),

It's been a pretty long while since I updated (11 days to be exact) and a lot has happened! I'm slowly starting to settle into my third year of high school and I have to admit, it's been pretty overwhelming. I've barely had time for anything! Probably the only things I've been active at (involving the Internet) is tumblr. I'm so sorry for still not having returned your comments!
Yesterday a dress I ordered online arrived. It's by Element Eden and from the collection inspired by Daydream Lily, hopefully this week I'll be able to show you all! It's very pretty... and floral!
Anyway, before I get too sidetracked, let's get onto the subject of this post -- Valentines Day! Ahh, the universal holiday of love. It's an excuse to be really girlie, wear lots of pink and red and spoil the ones you love with kitschy cards, heart-shaped goodies and roses. I've made this cute little checklist of the things to do on Valentines Day. How adorable are the vintage cards? Have you got any romantic plans for Feb 14? ♥

My birthday is in thirteen days and I couldn't be more excited... (especially because my pen-pal and I, Carina, share the  same birthdate!). Well, I better scoot, going to have another Once Upon a Time marathon with Rosey. I hope you all have a lovely weekend and I'll see you soon!

I don't really have much planned for Valentines day, but my school is holding a fundraiser where you can send a little chocolate and card to people, so I have written a few to friends :) The idea of Valentines is so lovely, especially with the kitschy vibe and macarons!

Eep I can't wait to see your dress! And I'm so excited for our birthdays hehe I'll be sure to send you a little card!
