Valentine's Day, the most disputable of all Hallmark holidays is right around the corner. Whether you are a hopeless romantic or hopelessly trying to convince yourself you're not interestedthese charming valentines picks are enough to tempt the coldest of hearts. If you’re not bold enough to leave this edit for your loved one to stumble upon, there is no need to worry. All items are £25 and under, meaning you can treat yourself and save the guilt for the heart shaped confectionary.  



JEWELLERY 

When it comes to beautiful, simple and affordable jewellery, there are two little treasures I have to share with you all.  

The first is LVNDR who stock the best selection of hand picked pieces. My favourite designs are the numerous animal rings, bracelets and necklaces which have taken Instagram and Pinterest by storm. I already received most of the cat and kitten pieces for Christmas, so for my valentines picks I opted for the brand new baby turtle necklace (£9.99) and the popular kissing giraffes bracelet (£3.99).  Both are adorable little pieces to add to any jewellery collection. With the competitive prices, this is the perfect valentines surprise without having to spend a fortune. 



My second hidden gem is Woolf Whistle which you might have seen on my Instagram in the past. I already knew that Woolf Whistle stocked seriously cool sunglasses but their jewellery is stunning. All of the pretty statement pieces can add glamour to a basic outfit meaning you can transform your wardrobe from as little as £3. My valentines pick is the gorgeous 'All The Wild Horses' necklace below which has been a hit with celebrities as well as fellow bloggers.

CLOTHING 

One of the most cliched valentines gifts (after chocolates and flowers) is delicate underwear, which is a popular 'for you, for me' choice. ASOS has an extensive collection of lingerie with intricate designs at premium quality. You would be forgiven for thinking that the lacy Stella set below is from a luxury underwear brand - this set is actually a steal for just £24. 


If this Valentine's Day you'll be keeping your kit on, opt for the slogan ‘love of my life’ sweatshirt (£25). On trend slogan style, subtle and not sickly – triple win.  


MAKE UP 

If you're taking your loved one out for dinner or are heading out with the girls, treat yourself to a Anna Sui lipstick for the occasion. If the creamy pink and red shades aren't tempting enough, look at the adorable pineapple-esque packaging! The 'sunlight' shade will be making an appearance on my dressing table but there are enough different shades available at Urban Outfitters for you to find your perfect valentines kiss. 




HOMEWARE

You know you are getting older when you get excited about items for the home. I have developed a huge obsession with tropical and Moroccan homeware which is how I stumbled upon Rockett St George, who stock a unique and eclectic mix of homeware and gifts. I would recommend having a browse through the website yourself because there are so many unusual pieces which can add character to the home. I have picked the little gold pineapple ornament (£9.95) and gold parrot candle (£8.50) which would be perfect to personalise my new work space.





As well as my huge homeware inspiration folder of pineapples, palm trees and tropical birds, I also hoard jars, flowers and lights. When I saw these heart string lights (£10) from Urban Outfitters , I fell in love. They would be perfect to warm any room for a romantic valentines evening at home.



I hope that my valentines edit has helped anyone struggling to find a 'gift for her' or anyone not feeling the holiday vibes get a little bit more excited. Oh and it's okay if the only person you want to see this valentines day is the postman, he will be dropping off all of your new deliveries.

Happy Valentines Day,

Love Em x

Weddings are filled with once in a lifetime emotions. This year, I have been lucky enough to be invited to three very special weddings over Spring and Summer. With three weddings comes great responsibility and therefore to prepare myself; She Wears Seashells: The Wedding Series was born.
