This year, Mr Lyns and I had a lovely low-key Valentines Day as we’re trying to save some money. We didn’t do flowers, chocolates and the big meal out and instead chose to have a gorgeous and intimate breakfast date at Miel et Moi before I had to rush off to act in a mock court trial (don’t ask) and I have to say that I loved it every bit as much as I would have had we went all out.
That being said, I do find that there is something that is good for the soul in spending an hour pampering yourself whether it be for a cute date night or a big girls night out. Taking the time for yourself and dolling yourself up can help make you feel a million dollars. Whilst it’s lovely to head off to the hairdressers and nail salon in preparation of your big evening, there are several things you can do at home which are more purse friendly and don’t take too much time.
