Valentines Day: 10 gifts under £10 [for her]

chocIt’s cropped up again, yes that day that no one really likes but EVERYONE talks about… Valentines Day!

Couples hate it because its forced romance and it means forking out for a gift, and single people loath it because it reminds them the only love of their life waiting at home for them is their Netflix account.

HOWEVER I have some good news for you. I have created a guide of 10 fantastic gifts under £10 that are are awesome and also won’t break the bank either. So guys, either treat your lady, or women get sending links to your date, mate or even just buy it for yourself (you deserve it!).

These great items start with the yummy Hotel Chocolat Salted Caramel chocolates (top right) that are guaranteed to have anyone drooling and are a bargain at just £3.75.

You can check out the rest of my V-day picks below…

Happy shopping & have a happy love day on Sunday please, whatever your relationship status!

Tom Ford Nail Varnish ‘African Violet’ – On my wish list!

tom fordSo I have decided I want some more posh nail varnishes in my collection.

I know some people may think they are a waste of money, but I just absolutely love the packaging of them. I mean, although Barry M does the job, the bottle and feeling you have when using it doesn’t really compare to when you are painting on some Chanel nail lacquer.

So, I decided to look on the Selfridges website tonight to see what was available. I instantly fell in love with the first polish I saw (typical). This was the Tom Ford nail varnish in the  ‘African Violet’. Now this must be new, as I haven’t seen any Tom Ford nail polishes before (unless I am way behind with my beauty news).

The colour is just the most perfect purple shade you have ever seen. it literally makes me come over all funny I love it so much (sad, I know). The only thing I don’t kind of love is the price. At £26 it would be the most I have ever paid for a nail polish in my life and to be honest although I love the shade A LOT, I really don’t know whether it is worth it?

Now I don’t have much experience with premium nail varnishes so I need a little help. Do you think they are worth splashing out on over high street brands? Do they do a better job or do you think that people are literally just paying for the label?

Let me know any comments you have at all as I really need some advice! Also let me know your thoughts on the new Tom Ford range – is it too expensive and what do you think of the colours in the range (which you can see here).

Honestly I would appreciate any feedback you have whatsover. Also let me know if you know any good sites which do premium nail varnishes with free delivery!

Much thanks ladies!
