Collaboration: Valentine’s Day mani with Katja, Nail2Express
Posted On February 12, 2018
Valentine’s Day is here once again. And with it there come Valentine’s nails, make up, … I am happy and proud that I can say this post today is a collaboration with one of my favourite bloggers – Katja from Nail2Express. Young mommy that still finds the time to do her nails. What her Valentine’s mani is? Click HERE to go to see her Valentine’s day mani.
My boyfriend and I don’t celebrate Valentine’s day. And no, I am not one of those that go around telling how I don’t want anything and then I am super angry when I actually don’t get anything. But I have to admit that even if we agree each year, no gifts and no celebration, my boy remembers anyway with a small gift. So, usually he is the one without gift. (Luckily he’s not angered by it!)
I have a bunch of different Valentine’s day memories, one of the most memorable is one from when I was still in elementary school. I read somewhere that you should give gifts to the people you care about, your friends, family,… I thought it was a great idea and I’ve prepared a small gift for everyone that mattered to me. Everyone got a chocolate and a hand made card with a verse specially for him. I don’t actually remember any more the way those gifts looked like. I just remember the joy of everyone that were given them. I still like to give gift, especially hand made.
An unofficial symbol of Valentine’s day is a red rose. My least favourite rose. I find it so cliche. Of course I am still happy when I receive it, but I am even happier if the rose has a different colour or if the flower I get isn’t rose at all. On the other hand, I never say no to chocolate, another cliche Valentine’s day gift.
Here are my thoughts around Valentine’s day. I will be very happy if you’ll take your time and share your thoughts about it with me!
